1. Cletus isn't what he appears to be.
2. Cletus has a severe dislike of bullies.
3. Cletus likes to tinker--with cars and with people.
4. Cletus is the second most dangerous man in Green Valley.
If you thought Cletus Winston was sweet, stupid and benign, then congratulations, you bought into what he was trying to sell you.
But Jennifer Sylvester knows the truth. She knows Cletus for the judgmental, vindictive and clever devil he is. He's the only man that can help her.
Cletus has things to do. He's got wild boar hunting and sausage making to be seeing to. He's got an important talent show in Nashville and he's got a motorcycle gang to destroy. He doesn't have time to indulge the Banana Cake Queen in her blackmail schemes. But her need and his ingrained compulsion to right wrongs causes him to agree to help her. He's just going to give her the help she really needs and not the help she thinks she needs.
I love me some Winston men. *Cue sigh*
I love the Winstons and Cletus is currently sitting at my #1. My love for Billy is still strong--and good news for all of you Billy-Lovers, Billy's featured heavily in this book and he's fantastic.
Not only do we get a perfect love story for Cletus, we get hints about Beau's upcoming story, a few tantalizing glimpses into the Billy/Claire saga and we get to catch up with Jess and Duane, Drew and Ashley and Jethro and Sienna. There's a lot happening in Cletus' life and it's a joy to watch.
There was only one thing I was worried about going in to Beard Science: limp heroine. Cletus is a notorious scene stealer. Cletus could have a series strictly dedicated to his own thoughts and antics and I would be satisfied. I was sure that I would be disinterested in what ever was going on with his heroine, be annoyed that the whole book wasn't from his POV alone and completely unconvinced that he had a worthy woman. But guess what... my worries were totally unnecessary. JENNIFER IS AMAZING.
If you thought Jennifer Sylvester was pathetic and insipid, then you were wrong. Heck, Cletus was wrong and Cletus is never wrong. Her aspirations might not be to become a Nobel Prize winning astrophysicist or to take The Food Network by storm, but she's smart, observant and has a sweetness and charity about her that you wouldn't expect given her situation.
No one really sees Jennifer. No one really knows Jennifer.
Cletus shows people only what he wants them to see.
But when they are together, they see into each others hearts and find beauty and love that everyone else overlooks and dismisses.
*Excuse me while I cry*
Somehow I managed to listen to this one out of order because I haven't listened to number two in the series yet, but these books work perfectly well as stand alones, so that was okay.
This book...as with most Penny Reid books...you never know what is going to happen when you start them. I already knew Cletus was a character and a half, but I could not have predicted the Banana Cake Queen. And honestly, I don't think another author could have taken that character and made her shine even half as well as Penny Reid managed to do. Wow...who would have thought these two would make a great match, but wow...they were AWESOME together!!
So who is the Banana Cake Queen? She's a totally sheltered 22 yo baker who is under the thumb of her parents. They tell her where to go, who to see, what to wear, and how to act. The only time she's ever really free is when she's baking for the family bakery...for FREE. Grr, that little fact bugged me so much...this poor girl works 80 hours a week for free. Her family does not deserve her consideration after so many years of this treatment!
She's filming a segment for her online vlog when she accidentally films Cletus committing an illegal act for one of his schemes. It gives her an idea. Cletus is smart and always scheming...she can bribe him into helping her find a husband, because if left to her parents, she won't like who she's paired up with. And the story goes from there.
This story was brilliant. So much fun. The characters were amazing and the development of the story was pure entertainment. I loved getting to watch Jennifer's character arc as she blossomed and found her own person under the layers of yellow ruffles. And Cletus had a surprising arc, too. I wouldn't have thought he would need it, but it turns out he did. These whole series is so much fun and I particularly loved this one.
Jennifer was a heroine you really wanted to root for. Treated horribly by her family and treated as a joke by the town you couldn’t wait to watch her grow into herself. I loved that she was just as unique and quirky as Cletus. They seem to be a perfect match.
Each time I read a Winston Brothers novel I worry about it not being able to live up to my enjoyment of the novel before, but once again, I didn’t need to worry. Cletus and Jennifer’s story, while different than the first two, was just as great. This family from Tennessee is charming, unusual and all are perfect gentlemen with their ladies. Their courtships are all unique and Penny Reid does a great job of maintaining the originality of the storyline yet catching the correct tone of a Tennessee southern vibe.
