Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby deliver a hilarious, laugh out loud romantic comedy with Man Hands that will leave readers hungry for more!
About ‘Man Hands’ by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby:
He puts the “screw” in screwball comedy…
At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.
But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass.
Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer.
Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don’t expect me to actually go through with it.
All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life.
I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either— just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them.
But I will find her.
‘Man Hands’ by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby book review:
Everyone should know by now that I’m a die-hard Sarina Bowen fan, and I’m always excited for any new project she puts out. When she revealed that she was publishing Man Hands, co-written with Tanya Eby, I was even more ecstatic. I’ve really been appreciating rom-coms lately, because let’s be honest – we could all use an extra laugh these days.
Although many of Sarina’s novels are pretty funny already (have you met Blake Riley?) Man Hands is a whole other level of comedy. I’ve honestly never read the word “balls” more times in another book and I just loved Brynn’s honesty and realness. After reading this book, fans will want to be her best friend – for her cooking and her humor.
“‘I can’t go out on the prowl guys. I don’t want to do this. Too scary,’ I whine. ‘I just want to cook something and post it online and have a thousand people like it so I feel validated. Can’t I do that instead?’ ‘No,’ they say. Fucking girlfriends.”
When Brynn meets Tom, she never meant to actually hook up with him. It was all on a whim to kiss a random stranger and get over her ex. But she never expected to have such a powerful reaction to Tom and his kiss, after all he isn’t even her usual type. Lucky for Brynn, she’s just what Tom wants.
What’s fun about Tom, is that even though he’s a celebrity, he really doesn’t have his shit together either. At the time that he meets Brynn, he’s supposed to be pulling himself back together after a nasty break up. One kiss from Brynn and he throws his celibacy out the window.
“Unfortunately, I can’t really speak in sentences. I was inside this woman last week. Just standing beside her is making me crazy. I want to be inside her again, this second. But people would stare.”
But a certain down side to being a celebrity kind of muddles things up for the couple. It also helps push them together when they might have just chopped things up to a physical attraction rather than something deeper.
I wasn’t expecting some of the twists in the story which always delights me and I didn’t want to put this one down until I was done. Learn from my mistake and don’t start this one in the evening or else you’ll find yourself up all night reading!
