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*
I don’t want to go into too much detail because I don’t want to post any spoilers, but this book baffles me in excellent ways.
How’d that happen? - How did I go from enjoying Jennifer (the heroine) to being annoyed by her, to smirking with her, to befriending her all within the first 1/3 of the book. And from that point on, I kept on loving her. Seriously, that girl kept on getting better.
This books is epic, like Benhur EPIC - Right when I thought I knew where the book was going, it transformed into something I wasn’t expecting. And the great thing was, there was no stupidity. For the amount of plot and the character development, it really should have been Gone With The Wind long. It wasn’t, but yet, the story was so rich and fulfilling, like the most decadent cake ever. I want to go into more detail, but once again, I’m not spoiling it for anyone.
All in the family - When some authors write a series, it’s almost a chore to read because they re-introduce couples, or make their entrance into the story seem forced, like the Seinfeld finale. With Beard, it flowed, and more importantly, the secondary characters added so much richness to the plot. You have to love a family who enjoys fine sausage, and shares their sausage with the community.
Geeky Heart - I love stories where I feel I grow as a person, and Jennifer is the Janie kind of nerdy who makes the ride fun. She is more than she appears. She has depth and skills no one knows about. This is a story about looking beneath the surface, breaking out of comfort zones, owning who you are, and finding your tribe.
So in summary, I loved it. It is Cletus-worthy, which is saying a lot.
I have no idea how Penny Reid does it. Every book she writes I devour and almost definitely I'm going to love the words she has written down. Her heroes and heroines are not your usual heroes and heroines and while I enjoy your typical romance quite often as well, Reid's romance is in a class of its own. Truly. The stories grip my attention and if I didn't have my phone screech at my at certain points during the day (e.g. make lunch or light a fire so that the house wouldn't be freezing), I don't think I would have even noticed anything around me. That's how good Reid's writing is and that's why she's my favourite.
I have wanted to read about Cletus since Reid introduced us to him Beauty and Mustache and I have to admit that she didn't disappoint me in the slightest. If anything, she even surpassed my expectations and hopes for Cletus and his love interest. Although he isn't as mysterious anymore he's still oh so mindblowingly wondrous to read about. And so was Jennifer.
When Penny dropped the bomb that Cletus wouldn't get together with Quinn's sister Shelly as hinted at the end of Grin and Beard It (and in a newsletter or two), but rather with Jennifer - the queen of banana cakes, I was actually a bit flabbergasted as I really thought that Cletus and Shelly would make a lot of sense. But I don't think so anymore. It isn't because Shelly's not awesome - she still is - but Cletus and our little blackmailing Banana Cake Queen actually make a lot more sense as these two make me gush and they're oh so right for one another.
If you haven't read Penny Reid yet, what on Earth are you still waiting for? Go grab a book and be prepared to fall in love. :)
