    • 5 Beards fly first class stars!Poppy is in a rut. She was so close to having her happily ever after, but it didn't end up being in her cards. She's moping around and just stuck in the suckage of her past. That is until her closeted friend Kyle needs her to come on a family trip to pose as his girlfriend. She's reluctant but all it takes is the offer of a free tip and a swift kick in the butt from her sisters Tully and Bell, and she is off to Maui to help a friend and to meet someone she isn't qu [...]


    • 5 Stars to The Beard by Stella James.This book was a delightful surprise. Meaning, I didn't expect to laugh as much as I did. There were some outrageous and fun moments that even gave me secondhand embarrassment which I absolutely loved. It was commented by my daughter that I had a goofy grin on my face when I was reading. This book was so much fun to read. The characters were lovable, relatable, real and had absolutely NO filters when they opened their mouths to speak.As you know from reading t [...]


    • This was my first book by the author and it was fantastic! The writing was witty and endearing with a good dose of realism that made you relate to Poppy on so many levels. I even found myself laughing out loud! Read it!



    • I feel like I say this every time, but this book is Stella's best! The story is hot, funny AF, a dash of drama, and everything I love about Ms. James writing and sense of humor. Bravo friend!


    • From start to finish this book will have you laughing until your sides ache. I LOVED Poppy and her crazy family!


    • It's no secret I am a lover of all things Stella James, so the fact I'm adding The Beard and Poppy Kramer to the list will hardly be shocking, but here's the (shortened) list of reasons why anyway:Firstly, this book is a pure joy to read. It's the kind of novel that burrows straight into your heart because the story itself comes from a place of truth and the reality of being a human. And a woman. And in a rut.Secondly the characters are extremely relatable & instantly likeable. I know Poppy. [...]


    • The Beard is super sweet and super silly and I mean that in the best way possible. It's all things Stella James, wrapped into pages of wonderful writing. It's light and airy and the perfect romantic, comedic, summer read. You'll fall for the characters immediately and flip through the pages just as quickly. I stayed up way past my bedtime just so I could finish this read and it was totally worth the bags under my eyes the next day. You don't want to miss out on this one!


    • Loved this book!!! I'm usually a "must have erotic romance" kind of reader so even though I knew Stella wouldn't do me wrong I wasriousabout the non-erotic disclaimer. Have no fear, ladies. Will is hot and there's so much tension you don't even need erotic. Loved Poppy and Will and all the supporting characters. I can't wait for more!!!!!!!!!


    • Funny and charming are the best description for this story and the characters. The characters are especially well done - each one seemed familiar, as if I recognized them from my life. Poppy especially so; I saw quite a bit of myself in her, though I wish I had her passion for cleaning.Buy and read this right away, though be warned: you will laugh out loud. Be careful when reading in public.


    • The perfect amount of comedy. The perfect amount of seriousness. This was just what I needed right now. Stella James brings us a great story that in so many ways are realistic and I could see myself in most of the situations.


    • Stella James delivers another 5 ☆ novel. The Beard is full of life and laughter as well as some happily ever after.



    • I abso-bloody-lutly love this bookI love POPPY, I loved the humour in the book, I think Poppy's family is nuts and so adorable at the same time, it was nice how she helped a friend out it can all change from a week away, I could of read more of her story I give this book 5 abso-bloody-lutly amazing stars *****


    • 4.5stars! Loved this awesome read, had plenty of humor, lots of banter and funny moments! Love these sisters, and Poppy l just love her, she was a hoot!


    • Poppy Kramer is so fun. I was dying laughing throughout the book. This is a girl I want to be my bestie! There were so many hilarious quotes that there is no way I can pick a favorite. Every character was well thought out, down to the very minor supporting characters. I could easily picture each one in my head. My favorite by far is Rose. The little old grandma who knows everything, does whatever the hell she wants and tells it like it is. I want to be that old lady is fifty years! I love that t [...]


    • As always, Stella James does not disappoint her readers!I loved her Blue Falls series, with it's sweet, romantic and steamy tales and complex characters. This time around, we meet an even more complex character in Poppy, who I think is impossible not to love. Her ups and downs, ins and outs made for a wonderful journey. There were plenty of laughs to be had and a little heat, but what I loved most, oddly enough, is that it WASN'T a mere boy-meets-girl scenario. There was more depth to the story [...]


    • First off, I love Poppy! She is hilariously funny and honest. Poppy was such a lovable character. I found her to be very relatable. She’s someone who likes to speak her mind and has no filter, which made for such a fun and entertaining read. I loved Poppy’s relationship with her family, more specifically the relationship that she has with her sisters. Poppy’s relationships with her sisters depicts what it’s like to be best friends with your sisters perfectly. From the laugh out loud mome [...]


    • So I feel like I say this everytime that I read a book by Stella, but damn, she is killing it! The Beard is a perfect balance between comedy and romance that constantly keeps you on your toes. You never know what you are going to read and that makes it all the more fun. The Kramer sisters are just brilliant and if I had sisters, I would want them to be like Poppy, Tully and Bell. Once again I was not disappointed and look forward to the next book by Stella.


    • This book made me smileI didn't really know what to expect when I started this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. I found myself smiling a lot while reading. Really enjoyed it and it was a nice break from the sexually charged books I read.


    • I know people say "this book literally made me laugh out loud" without actually meaning it, but this book LITERALLY made me laugh out loud. If you're going to read it (and I highly recommend that you do!) make sure to do so somewhere you won't embarrass yourself by cackling at your Kindle screen like a crazy person. Or do, and then tell everyone what book you're laughing at, because word of Stella's genius deserves to be spread! 'The Beard' is full of hilarity and heart, and Poppy's entire perso [...]


    • What a fun read. I was cracking up right from the beginning and it kept me thoroughly entertained throughout. Loved the narration of the heroine, I feel like we could be besties! Enough humour and relationship drama to keep even my smut-loving heart happy without the erotic element. And then the PS stories of the other sisters at the end was very cute.I was one of those annoying fuckwads who pranced around and behaved as though everything around them was coated in magical fairy dust.


    • 5 Stars for this amazing incredible hilarious Rom-Com Novel by Stella James. Stella sent me a ARC in exchange for my honest review. I've just recently have read Stella's books, and feel in love with her writing, so this book was a no brainier.This story is laugh out loud, almost pee your pants funny because Poppy is like your crazy best friend. She's so personable that you fall in love with her and only want her to find love.I loved every second of this book. I read it in one sitting because it [...]


    • Loved it!!! Queen of the Camel Toe 😂Another great one from Stella, she never disappoints. I absolutely loved the story of Poppy and Will After a heartbreak Poppy finally opens up and meets Will. A hilarious romantic comedy and you won't regret the read. Great touch adding the two bonus chapters for the equally funny sisters .


    • I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I don't read romantic comedy's very often because most never really make me laugh, but this one did. At some points Poppy had me laughing out loud. Poppy is a character I've never come across before, she is different from all the other women in books. I loved reading from her point of view. This book is quirky, unique and so much fun! I wish I could rate it more than 5 stars. There needs to be more books like this! I want more!


    • The BeardThe Beard is a quick and super fun read. Poppy Kramer is freaking hilarious. I loved her and all of her crazy antics. I also really enjoyed all of the side characters. Such a fun read!


    • I have to be honest, I hadn't heard of the term 'beard' before and went into this book expecting a guy to have a big bushy beard lol. So, needless to say, I learnt something new and along the way, I had a great experience reading this fabulous book. It was a quick, funny read and I loved the addition of the two extra stories at the end. Well worth the read.


    • Loved this book!!I started reading it in a waiting roomwhich had me trying to hold back a laugh and grinning like crazy. LOL!!I adore Poppy and her sisters and pretty much everyone in this bookexcept Todd! LOLlove the scene toward the end. This was such a fun book. I was just immersed in Poppy's circumstances and her life. Her sisters were absolutely awesome! Her parents were freakin adorable and Kyle's family were precious as well. I don't want to share too many details as I went into this book [...]


    • So.So I fell in love with Poppy's personality! Her sisters too! But I wanted more. Ughh. I feel like it just left you hanging. I enjoyed the emails back and forth. And really enjoyed Poppy's humor! 3 stars from me because i wanted more


    • I may be a little bias because I've loved and enjoyed every single one of Stella James' published works, but The Beard is amazing!! I LOVED it!!! Loved every second of it! Any book that can genuinely make me laugh out loud and leaves me with a permanent smile, automatically earns a special spot in my heart. Hilarious, relatable, heartfelt and a group of characters that you can't help but fall for. THIS BOOK IS SO MUCH FUN! The dynamics between the characters alone (especially amongst the sisters [...]
