Review: Beard Science by Penny Reid

Beard Science Beard Science by Penny Reid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book deserves all of its stars because it made me laugh, smile, grin and chuckle. It also made me cringe, shake my head in frustration, and figuratively bite my nails in anticipation.


Come on, who didn't love Cletus??? I've loved this character since the first time he was introduced in Beauty and the Mustache (Ashley and Drew's story). He was freaking awesome. He was diabolical, manipulative and amazing. I loved this character. The way he manipulated people and situations. His plans of mayhem. And how hilarious was his plan for leprosy? LOL!! It's really funny because I saw a lot of myself in his characteristics which immediately made me connect with him. Yes, I admit to bonding with a fictional character. I do it all the freaking time!!

I loved the slow build of friendship and then unexpected lust and love that developed between Cletus and Jennifer. The way he saw her and wanted her to see herself was beautiful. I did experience some frustration with the way that Jen seemed to just accept the way she was treated, but I was so glad to see all of the Winston clan step up and have her back.

Fave quotes (all from Cletus lol):
"This was our beginning.
I couldn't wait for the middle.
And I never wanted it to end."

"For the first time in my life, change was synonymous with hope and anticipation. I looked forward to it. And that was revolutionary."

"You want to know what you are to me? Fine. You're my beginning, middle, and end."

Each quote was just so damn swoon-worthy. Cletus definitely made himself at home in my heart and I'm sure he'll do the same for anyone who takes the chance to meet him!
