Description

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.

Love Pippas books

I have loved and read all of pippas books since I first found them. They’re great love stories and really funny. I had read this book before but wen Ross really brought aeres to life and loved Virginia roses interpretation of felicity and all her puppets.

Love me a good Hockey romance

I enjoy a good hockey romance, and this one did not disappoint. It was Hysterical... Pissed off Granny ghost? check. Phallic cookies? check. Ventriloquist? check. Misunderstood Hockey player? Check.

If you aren't laughing out loud during the first 90 seconds of this book, you need to sit down and relax... it was such a good listen.

Weird but brilliant ...

This really was masterfully crazy. Felicity is unique and beautiful and vibrant and a mess. I went through all the feels; I laughed, I cried, i rolled my eyes, I got mad, I got confused, I got irritated and in the end I was in love! Aries and Felicity are the heart gushiest couple I’ve fell for in a while. This is the second book I’ve read by Pippa Grant and I am obsessed with her humor and they way she can pull at my emotions. Brilliant stuff !!!

Let’s not forget the audio talent. Ross and Rose were amazing. There were a lot of different voices required for Felicity alone, big pat on back for Rose for a job well done. Ross represented well for Felicity’s characters when he was at the mike. Their collaboration really brought Grant’s story to life.

A monkey + multiple personalities

A sweet story with lots and lots of personality, like lots of them! Oh and a monkey.

My only criticism was the way the male lead was read. He came across as “Neanderthal-ish” yet didn’t really seem to have been written that way.

Lots of laughs and tender moments. Very cute story.

LITE, LAUGHS & LOVE.. WITH AN UNDERCURRENT OF DEEP

Pippa Grant has written a hilarious yet moving Rom Com with heart about Felicity, a talented quirky genius ventriloquist whose multiple mental puppet personalities (and inanimate objects) are always ready and eager to chirp in with their own particular views on things.. which is unique, refreshing and riotously fun. Felicity has made bad choices in men and she’s all over the place when it comes to her career which she often derails and starts again. But Felicity loves loves loves all things related to Thrusters Hockey and, with a brother already on the team, she hopes to someday work there too. So, this mild mannered tale is centered around Thrusters.. and especially, as it turns out, the budding romance between Felicity and the withdrawn, misunderstood beefcake giant of a skater called Ares Berger who grunts, mumbles and awkwardly stumbles his way through conversations. Because Felicity sees beyond his damaged cold facade.. and he sees and accepts her quirks and vocal personalities too.. so it should’ve been plain sailing for this match made in Heaven right?.. but, in the talented hands of Ms Grant, this well-written well-paced dual POV romance didn’t quite play out that way.

Wen Ross is always good.. but Virginia Rose’s well-timed multiple personality narration of Felicity and her ‘on board’ characters was pure Audible gold and I’m sure there aren’t many actors out there who could constantly and creatively perform such an intense wide variety of characters.. make the interactions seamless.. make them loveable.. and make them so much fun too.

Worth a credit? Well, if you’re looking for something different, something that has humor, heart and heat, something that has a wide variety of living and fictional secondary characters and something that’s touching, sweet and unique.. then yes I’m sure you too will find this Rom Com a compelling creditworthy listen.

Ares and Felicity are great. This book will cause anyone to laugh out loud. Pippa will certainly make you fall in love with these characters. So get your copy and have a great time.

Wicked Cute, Wicked Weird, Wicked Funny

Talk about a RomCom. This was a bizarre, weird, hilarious story. Cute story and I laughed out loud quite a few times. "Sawgy dick cookie mountain"

LOL fun

The voices took a chapter or two to get used to but towards the end there was a moment I realized she hadn't done the voices and I legit missed them and was happy when they came back.

Excellent

I love this author. Once I started this book, I could not stop reading. This is a great story. It has snarky, sassy, intelligent, and humorous dialogue that keeps the story fresh during the entire book. A quirky genius for a quiet hockey genius. When I stared listening, it was the same way. I became mesmerized and could not stop listening. Narrators nailed it. Sassy & quirky Felicity and brooding & underestimated Ares just came to life. Narrators Match made! Enjoy
