Make a deal with the devil and you might get what you want, but will it be what you need?

Jennifer Sylvester wants one thing, and that one thing is NOT to be Tennessee’s reigning Banana Cake Queen. Ever the perpetual good girl and obedient daughter, Jennifer is buckling under the weight of her social media celebrity, her mother’s ambitions, and her father’s puritanical mandates. Jennifer is officially desperate.

And desperate times call for Cletus Winston.

Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he’s in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So... what’s a maniacal mastermind to do?

Likely, the last thing you expect.

Penny Reid is the bomb; an absolute favorite author for the kind of contemporary romance I enjoy.  Her books are smart and funny with relatable characters.  All her series are amazing.  This one is in the Winston Brothers series, set in Tennessee, with 6 boys and one girl as siblings.

Cletus. OMG.  I. LOVE. CLETUS.  He will be my book boyfriend forever. He’s not typical but I get him. He’s very smart, and funny, and controlled. Seeing the focused Cletus lose it, is precious. Cletus does not like bullies. He does like cars, music, pie, and making deals.

Jennifer is perhaps my favorite lady in this series. She has led a sheltered life, being home-schooled, and working in a bakery for her parents now. She lives with her parents and they decide everything for her. I seriously don’t like the way they treat her. In spite of being controlled and made a joke, Jennifer is awesome. She is strong, moral, smart, more than competent, KIND, RESPECTFUL, COMPASSIONATE and fun. She is so brave. I love her.

Beard Science is a love of family and discovery of self. It is intelligence and compassion fighting bullies and greed. It hurt my heart, then lifts and fills it and makes me laugh. The emotional ride is one I need and can take again and again.

I’m so very happy to get to see all the brothers again, and their women. Also, I am thrilled for the peek at Billy. I can already tell he will win my heart. Three boys down, three to go. I can’t wait. But I’m happy to linger with Cletus. JS.

Enter the tour wide Giveaway.

About Penny Reid

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

  In the Knitting in the City series, Ashley Winston is one of the “knitters” who has SIX brothers. Grin and Beard It is the second book in the spinoff series, Winston Brothers. I love the brothers. They are funny and interesting. Jethro is featured here, a former bad boy who has been trying hard to redeem himself. It’s heartwarming to see him apply his considerable talents to good works. Jethro holds himself to some high standards these days. Sienna’s perspectives are unusual, candid and refreshing.  She is far from a typical actor, thank goodness.  Their first experiences with real love, plus the attitudes of those around them are the basis for this tale. The complication of Sienna’s celebrity adds some twists. Almost more than […]
