"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?"--Page 4 of cover.

5+ STARS!!

(Read: 03/17) I have enjoyed every single book that Penny Reid has authored. By far, my favorite has been Beauty and the Mustache. Yet, Grin and Beard It has come a very close second. There's only one explanation - Drew Runous! His role might be small and his words few, but they both command an audience. So much so, that I was sobbing in the epilogue.

Jethro and Sienna were pretty wonderful, as well. :-) Going in, I'm always surprised how Penny Reid fleshes out her main characters after only getting small glimpses of them in previous books.
After reading the first three Winston bros. books, Jethro is definitely my favorite. (Sorry, Cletus fans.) I can see why Drew and Jethro are close, because they are the epitome of what I would describe as honorable men. Jethro has spent his adult life atoning for his past and being an example of redemption. It's been weeks since I finished this book and thoughts of these characters still move me. Jethro and Sienna are truly deserving of each other and, as always, Penny has written an achingly heartfelt and funny novel.

Penny Reid's books are a hit and miss with me. This one was a miss. To be fair, I don't like (am completely uninterested in) stories where one of the characters is a famous person, such as rock star or an actor, so that was an immdieate challenge for me. I was bored.

Oh those Winston brothers! Another enjoyable read with a smart successful woman and rehabilitated bad boy! Book 2 in the series.
