Review: Grin& Bear it by Penny Reid

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?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
6+++ Jet & Sienna STARS

OMG! I want to give this a million stars. It simply checked every single one of my "must haves" for a wonderfully amazing romance. This was an audio book and I must say, the voices were spectacular. I LOVE Penny's book and would have loved this book without the voices but, they just added soemthing to the banter, the laughter, the sweetness and the love. Cielo Camargo as Sienna Diaz was perfect. Her accent, when needed, and her delivery was spot on! And Chris Brinkley with his deep, husky southern twang for Jethro Winston...bye, bye panties!

I fell in love with both these characters, seriously, they stole my heart. And I can't get enough of the Winston brothers. Penny gave us just enough of Cletus, love him, that I've gotta get his book now!

If you're a Penny fan and haven't read this one, go for it! You will not regret it. And if you haven't read Penny before, you must rectify that immediately!
