Review: Beauty and the Beefcake by Pippa Grant

Category : Reviews

She’s my sun and moon.

My stars, my air, my sunshine.

She’s every heartbeat.

There are two kinds of women in the world – those I can bang, and those I can’t.

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 line.

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 or cliffhangers.

My Review:
Genre: Romance – Comedy, Sports (Hockey)
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: No, but all of Pippa Grant’s books are in the same universe so all her characters are interconnecting
POV: Felicity and Ares
Steam Level: Slow Burn to toasty

OMG! Do you like sports romance? Romantic comedies? Beauty and the Beefcake is the 4th book I’ve read of Pippa Grant’s and I will keep reading her! I fell in love with Ares in The Pilot and the Puckup (Ares’ twin Zeus’ book) and fell further in Royally Pucked (Manning and Gracie’s book). He was worth the wait! Ares is sweet, funny, kind, and observant. He doesn’t talk much but says a lot. Felicity talks too much, in different voices (she is a ventriloquist). The combination of these two is spectacular. The fireworks combustible. The laughs, out loud (in public – Don’t read in public unless you don’t mind dying of laughter). With Beauty and the Beefcake Pippa Grant has become one of my few one-click authors. If you want to laugh, cry, and laugh harder then pick up Pippa’s books.

Favorite Quotes:

  • Pretty doesn’t mean attractive. Known lots of pretty girls who weren’t attractive. But Felicity? Pretty, funny, smart, kind.
  • Either Ares is way more fluent in his head than he lets on, or those weird feeling in my chest and cooch are inspiring imaginary rage on his behalf.
  • The siren call of their testosterone beacons to some primitive part of me.
  • She gives good hug.
  • Who the fuck wants to be a god? Too much work. Too much drama?
  • I’ll be the unicorn horn in your cookie.
  • The right three words have more impact than ten thousand wrong words.
