Penny Reid is one of my go-to, one-click authors–a well-deserved distinction that only grows stronger with each new release. (I should also clarify up front that I am not on the author’s ARCs list, although I wish I were! All of her titles that I’ve read, I have bought.)
Jethro and Sienna’s is a fun, unpredictable ride. Below is a jumbled mess of what I liked about it:
I loved what Jethro did behind the scenes to make Sienna’s stay more comfortable.
As usual, Cletus’s presence serves more than one purpose: voice of reason, comic relief, and also a little mystery (referring to his hold over their father). His character grows more complex with each new “Winston Brothers” installment, and I’ve enjoyed experiencing each new layer.
Also as usual, I loved seeing flashes of previous MCs (Drew, Ashley, Jessica, & Duane).
Being in Sienna’s head was fun since she’s a comedian/actress; I kept envisioning the spirit and spunk of of Melissa McCarthy.
Jethro’s past, specifically his once-role in the motorcycle club, was interesting to read about. His perspective on righting wrongs is both admirable and impossibly rigid. That being said, what I like most about him in his current life stage are his integrity, sense of honor, and selflessness.
Grin and Beard It is a light-hearted and sweet affair seasoned with (mostly) well-meaning siblings, stubborn past sins, and the prying eyes of the public–all set against a rural Tennessee backdrop.
If you haven’t yet gotten invested in the Winston family, now’s the time to start!
