New Release Book Review (& author giveaway): Beauty and the Beefcake by Pippa Grant

Title: Beauty and the Beefcake
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: May 17, 2018


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 Thoughts

Pippa Grant brings us another fun and laugh filled story in Beauty and the Beefcake. There is so much I liked about this book. Loki, the emotional support monkey is back, Felicity’s friends are a hoot, the writing has plenty of funny quips, banter and dialogue. There’s also a serious vein running throughout as neither Ares or Felicity are taken seriously. Their exteriors may be silly and carefree but under the surface there are deep wells of emotion and thoughts.

I cannot pinpoint why but I admit I did struggle with this book. At times, I found Ares’ abruptness and lack of speech frustrating, but then I’d read his inner thoughts and be incredibly touched. Felicity was a great heroine but her ventriloquism act was a bit freaky, no matter how cute the characters are, and Felicity’s were sweet. It’s not overly long in comparison to Pippa’s other books, so I can’t say it dragged. The writing style is similar, so it’s not that either.

There was so much that I liked. Yet there is that pesky ‘but’ that stops me from liking it as much as Pippa Grant’s other books. I am chalking this one up as an “It’s not you, it’s me” situation and will look forward to the next Pippa Grant book.
