My teammate’s sister?
She’s a can’t.
I moved in with her to protect her from a nasty ex, not to be the next guy in
She’s the brains.
I’m the brawn.
She’s the fruit.
I’m the sausage.
She talks too much.
I don’t talk at all, if I don’t have to.
Should be easy to resist her.
But every minute I spend with Felicity is another minute she gets under my
skin. She makes me feel like something more than a dumb puckhead with a big
Zamboni pony. And it’s getting harder to remember why I need to keep my hands
to myself. Beauty and the Beefcake is a vegan-friendly standalone romantic comedy
featuring a hockey player whose vocabulary is the only thing smaller than a
hockey puck, a book smart but aimless ventriloquist with too many voices in her
head, a dilapidated old house that may or may not be haunted, and no cheating
I was looking forward to Ares book so much and Pippa Grant did not disappoint. First, I love Ares, the strong, silent type who communicates with GIFs. Second, I knew that it was going to take a super special girl to give Ares the love he deserves and Felicity was that girl.
The Beauty and the Beefcake is just the latest in Pippa Grant’s hilarious world of quirky characters, odd behavior and laugh out loud moments. I loved that this book was a dual POV, although initially I wondered what Ares would have to say. Turns out it was a lot.
The tale of Ares and Felicity’s love has many twists and turns or maybe I should say many different voices to tell the tale. Felicity seems to be able to have a conversation as multiple characters with anyone and especially with herself. Which is a very entertaining aspect of this book.
The writing in The Beauty and the Beefcake is terrific; the story line is amazingly funny and the characters unforgettable. 5 Stars #2OCCMS

writing, sleeping, or trying to prepare her adorable demon spawn to be
productive members of society, she’s fantasizing about chocolate chip cookies.
