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 heartthrobs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head? Or worse, her heart?
This was one funny book let me tell you. I haven’t laughed out loud from a book in awhile. Once I saw this away hit my kindle I went into do not disturb mode. I think this is Penny Reid’s best book to date.
Jethro Winston of the oldest in the Winston clan. He is a reformed bad boy with looks to kill. He will charm you out of your panties if he wanted too. Oh, yeah he is a smooth talker that one. After many years of tuning his life around he is still punishing himself from the sins of his past.
Sienna Diaz is a force to be reckon with and that is saying something. She is what Hollywood call the fat funny Latina. Sienna is much more then that she is a comedian, actress, writer, oscar winner she does it all. She is feisty Latina with a sense of humor that gives Cletus’s a run for it money. She had me rolling throughout the book. The most funniest part I think was that phone conversation with her mother. Her mother reminded me of mine down to the tee. This funny romantic comedy is about two people from different walks of life trying to find their happily ever after.
