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
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
escape into sexy, funny stories way more than she likes perpetually cleaning
toothpaste out of sinks and off toilet handles. When she’s not reading,
writing, sleeping, or trying to prepare her adorable demon spawn to be
productive members of society, she’s fantasizing about chocolate chip cookies.
“Words are only as good as the man that uses them.” – Ares
What a fabulous introduction to a new to me author. That quote sums up this whole beautiful, funny story.
This is a stand alone, but I found the secondary characters so amazing, I am going to go and look for her past books so I can read more about them and hope she will write about the others that don’t have a full story yet.
This story of Felicity and Ares. Both wouldn’t be considered “normal” peeps but drawing from one of my favorite movie quotes, “Normal is a setting on a dryer”, normal is relative and for Felicity and Ares they are “normal” and perfect for each other!
Felicity is quirky, she is spunky and she has horrible taste in men (before Ares of course). She is beyond intelligent, and academic genius but lacks a bit in the common sense department. But all that makes for a great character, I absolutely loved her! Even at my age, (waaayy past 27) I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up and it made me relate to Felicity even more!
Ares, oh my! Even though he is named after the god of war, he has the most gentle soul. He is a man of very few words and not a lot of people really see him. But Felicity does and it’s amazing.
There chemistry is off the charts, it builds slow and steady and when they finally give into their feelings for each other it is so white hot and swoony!
This book had all the makings of a great romantic comedy! It is definitely a must read. I am so glad I had the opportunity to read this and was introduced to the fantastic writing of Pippa! You have a new fangirl in me!
