"Make a deal with the devil and you might get what you want, but will it be what you need? Jennifer Sylvester wants one thing, and that one thing is NOT to be Tennessee's reigning Banana Cake Queen. Ever the perpetual good girl and obedient daughter, Jennifer is buckling under the weight of her social media celebrity, her mother's ambitions, and her father's puritanical mandates. Jennifer is officially desperate. And desperate times call for Cletus Winston. Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he's in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So ... what's a maniacal mastermind to do? Likely, the last thing you expect."--Page 4 of cover.

I'm having a really hard time coming up with a review that fairly and reasonably explains my thoughts. I am a huge fan of Penny Reid's books and having read all of the Knitting and Winston Bros. books, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed them all. I just didn't love this one as much as all of the others. (Although, 4.5 stars is nothing to whine about.) This was most surprising to me since the reviews were all so over the moon about it. Beard Science had Penny Reid's trademark quirky humor and character growth, but lacked the intensely romantic aspects that I always feel with her books. I, also couldn't get Zach Galifinakus (The Hangover) out of my head when picturing Cletus since that was an early image the author posted after the release of Beauty and the Mustache. The newer images of Cletus were vastly different, but I couldn't shake that first one. Not that there's anything wrong with Zach Galifinakus. :-)

Bottom line: This was another well-written and unique foray into the Winston world. I wouldn't have missed it for anything. It may not be my favorite, but it is an essential chapter of the Winston family's happily-ever-afters.

How I adore the pairing of Cletus and as he later calls her "My Jenn". To be known as, dear gracious...The Banana Cake Queen and to somehow realize that she has fallen for the most dangerous man/mind in Tennessee, read on I urge, read on!
