Book 2, The Winston Brothers - Winston Brothers 2
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Sienna Diaz is everyone’s favorite “fat” funny lady. The movie studio executives can’t explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood’s most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna.
But she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the backroads of Green Valley, Tennessee. Much to her consternation, Sienna’s most frequent savior is a ridiculously handsome, charming, and cheeky Park Ranger by the name of Jethro Winston.
Sienna is accustomed to high levels of man-handsome, so it’s not Jethro’s chiseled features or his perfect physique that make Sienna stutter. It’s his southern charm. And gentlemanly manners. And habit of looking at her too long and too often.
Sienna has successfully navigated the labyrinth of Hollywood heart-throbs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head? Or worse, her heart?
Everyone in Green Valley, Tennessee knows that the six bearded Winston brothers have been imbued with an unfair share of charm and charisma… and are prone to mischief.
'Grin and Beard It' is book #3 in the Winston Brother’s series. Each book is a standalone, full length (~110k words), contemporary romantic comedy novel, and follows the romantic exploits and adventures of one of the six Winston Brothers.
Laugh out loud funny
I found this author on a whim and read the first book in the Winston brothers series. And laughed and laughed.
I love that while there’s conflict with secondary characters it doesn’t make the main characters lose sense.
My biggest pet peeve with romance novels are how most characters just don’t say what they are feeling and conflict happens over some stupid and easily prevented if you just said what’s on your mind.
Penny doesn’t do that and I absolutely adore her for that. It makes for a story about 2 people against the world rather than two people against each other.
And she starts every chapter with a quote. Great quotes and I love her for that as well.
Sigh. I kinda want to cry now that I really have read every single Penny book that's out. I hate that this is over for now. I enjoyed every second of my Penny binge and kinda want to do it all over again.
This book was so good. I laughed a lot, I even cried at a couple of spots, and it was an all around feel good novel. I can't wait for more of the Winston boys. We get little insights in to the other brothers that just makes us anticipate their books even more. I'm soooo ready for Cletus' book and I have a good idea of who will be his woman.
Very enjoyable story
Another winner from Penny Reid. I enjoyed this book and was again happy to get more background on the Winston Brothers. Cletus appears in this book more than the other brothers or Ashley which is fine because I love Cletus! Getting more backstory on Jethro was good though I was once again irritated at Billy, as I had been in Beauty and the Mustache, for being such a jerk to his siblings. The dynamic here, famous actress and a nobody with a questionable past was interesting and the storyline was well done. Looking forward to book 3, Cletus’ book.
