Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for Grin and Beard It by Penny Reid!
Oh, my heart!!! Jethro and Sienna have stolen my heart and I never want it back. Seriously. I don’t think I’ve ever read a more charming book. Jethro and Sienna’s mad flirting skills have charmed my pants off. Grin and Beard It is for sure my favorite adult romance of Penny Reid’s so far. This sweet, slow-burn romance swept me away and had me giggling, swooning, and smiling like a lunatic. I truly never wanted this book to end.
“BY MOTHRA’S NIPPLES! I FUCKING HATE THIS MAP!”
Celebrity actress Sienna Diaz may be talented at comedy, but she sucks at reading a map. On her way to a site to film her new movie, she gets lost in the national park in Green Valley, Tennessee. Lucky for her, Park Ranger Jethro Winston is there to save the day. Even luckier for her, he doesn’t seem to know who she is. His gorgeous looks, bearded face, and charming manners stun her, but she gives as good as she gets in terms of flirting – and boy, are they good at flirting. They form an instant connection with each other, but what starts off as something light-hearted and fun turns into more heated glances and prolonged touches as they want each other more and more. Jethro’s the first man who’s ever made Sienna tingle inside, but no matter how much she wants him, once he finds out the truth about her… nothing will be the same.
Jethro is the oldest Winston sibling, and a reformed man. In his younger, wilder years, he was a huge player, and even got himself involved in some dangerous schemes with a biker gang. But he’s managed to change his ways – he regrets his past, but every day of his present is spent making up for the mistakes he made and the hurt he inflicted on his family. There couldn’t be a better man than the one Jethro is now – he’s utterly sweet, charming, and ready to banter with Sienna ever time he sees her. And he wants to see her a lot. She’s the only woman to tempt him in his five years of celibacy, and he knows that she’s a one-of-a-kind woman, one he sees so many possibilities with in his future. But what happens when the truth of who she is revealed?
Pleasing her—my woman—cherishing her, loving her had no comparison. Satisfaction, desire, fulfillment were woefully inadequate words. So responsive. So incredible. So . . . mine.
I adored this book so hard. The romance is slow and sweet, but the pages flew by for me. I fell so hard for Sienna and Jethro and the rest of the Winston family. I’ve got a HUGE crush on Sienna and Jethro, to be honest. Sienna is that kickass, hilarious, amazing, independent woman we all want to be friends with, and Jethro is a kind-hearted, reformed, family-loving man. These two are a match made in heaven, and every time they were together on the pages, it was magical. The banter, the chemistry, the love… everything about this romance was so well-written. Penny Reid simply blew me away with this gem of a read. I love love loved it!!!
