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 heartthrobs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head? Or worse, her heart?

7 is the Winston number so…



I’m kind of troubled. How do you write a perfect a review? Is there any difference between a good review and a great review? I’ve read some other great early reviews and i feel hopeless, I want to write a perfect review for this book cause i want you all to read it and i want Penny to know just how flawless her writing is, how easy it is for me to love her books because they always, one way or the other, behind the humor, ALWAYS SPEAK TO ME. So to all my lovely followers, please READ THIS BOOK. JUST DROP EVERYTHING AND GO RIGHT IN!

Penny Reid hangs the moon. That is what this woman does, she writes books and hangs the moon. I open Penny Ried’s books and the first i thing i do is smile… And the last think i do is SIGH and then SMILE. Gosh! This woman makes me all kinds of happy when i read her books. She makes me love, she makes me dream, she makes me sad but she also makes me laugh. There are authors that you love, and there’re authors that simply are the reason why you’re a bookworm. That’s Reid for me, she’s the reason why i read and love every minute of it.

Grin and Beard It, the second book in the Winston Brothers Series was charming, real and all kinds of sweet romance. A book so achingly romantic you’ll feel the love in your bones.

Sienna Diaz, a famous actress and Jethro Winston, a handsome park ranger found love in an unexpected but charming way and will try to survive their relationship in the middle of the chaos of all things hollywood and Jethro’s troubled past.

Now excuse while i gush over my Winston boys.

OHMYGODINHEAVENSDELIVERME!!!!!! Oh sweet lord this Winston boys. This Winston family. I love them something fierce. Again, i remember my instant obsession when i read Beauty and the Mustache. This six bearded brothers needed their books and Reid making it happen is like EVERYTHING. First it was Truth or Beard which was Duane story and now was the turn for the eldest brother to have his book and his HEA.

Jethro Winston is something else. HE IS A MAN. AN IRRESISTIBLE CAPABLE MAN. A MAN YOU DON’T MIND GIVING TEN CHILDREN IF HE ASKS FOR THEM. Jethro Winston will charm your panties off! Now, he wasn’t always what you could call good but he wasn’t evil or just plain bad. Sadly he was just focused on following the steps his father who he didn’t know was just plain evil. He changed. Understood the wrong of his ways and wanted to make it better. HE IS SO SPECIAL. I wanted to wrap him in my arms, I wanted HIM to wrap me in his arms. FUCK! I wanted to KISS HIM.I might have kiss the book and closed my eyes…… hey! i’m allowed to be odd when it comes to fictional characters. I’d call dibs on him if i hadn’t call dibs on Billy already. OH! AND CLETUS. CLETUS IS ALSO MINE! But Jethro *SIGH* He’s the husband we all dream about.

SIENNA DIAZ…. WOW WOW WOW! What a heroine! And the word heroine suits her perfectly. She’s Latina, from Mexico. I’m puertorican but we still are both Latinas. Even tho the book is in dual pov, every time i got inside Sienna’s head was such a powerful and beautiful thing. I’m not like her. I SHOULD be like her. I WANT TO BE LIKE HER. We woman could breathe a little easier if we all had a little of Sienna Diaz inside of us. She was independent, she didn’t let anything stop her, she loved herself and she was so unapologetic about it. She was so PERFECT for Jethro, so perfect for this book. She taught me i could love myself and no care what anyone thinks. Love yourself with no regrets. Never stop fighting for what you love. She also taught me how to be BRAVE. What are hugs when you can’t give them to fictional characters? Fine! I guess i’ll be holding this book for quite some time then.

Now, while i go and work with my book hangover, If you haven’t read Reid’s books before, give Green Valley a chance!! Go right in and let Tennessee and beards charm you. Funny, smart, charming, sexy, romantic and sometimes odd all that together is simply exquisite! With Penny Reid you’ll always have a great time, she has something for all kinds of readers, for the funny ones, the smart ones, the romantic ones…. Reid delivers awesomeness and beauty. Trust me you don’t want to miss this out!
