Synopsis (Goodreads):
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?
Thoughts on Grin and Beard It: MAN, I adore these Winston Brothers. And Ashley. BUT THE BROTHERS! They make me laugh. They make me grin. They make me wish I had a woodpile that needed chopping. (That sounds all sorts of wrong, but I stand by it. I STAND BY IT!)

Jethro has charm to spare, but, perversely, he's careful about spreading it around. Which makes sense given his past and how he doesn't want to end up like his father. Honestly, his desire to be a better man and not toy with any female hearts was endearing. Probably a little frustrating from Sienna's point of view, but he had his reasons.

Speaking of Sienna, she's a hoot. Funny and kind and with a smart mouth. MY KIND OF LADY. While she and Jethro had a few (or more than a few) bumps on their road to their HEA, her straightforward approach to most everything was fun to watch.

And, OF COURSE, we have the rest of the Winstons. Cletus's diabolical genius might always be my favorite, but all the Winstons make me grin. (I ended up going back and getting reacquainted with the others all over again because I adore them so much.) LOVE!
