He puts the screw in screwball comedy....
At 34, 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.

Mmm Man Hands Indeed!
Mmm Man Hands Indeed!
This is #01 in the Man Hands Series by Tanya Eby and Sarina Bowen.
HEA with No cliffhangers! (Mostly, see review for more details!)
This is the first so could be read on its own, but the characters are all involved in each others lives and stories so I HIGHLY suggest reading them in order to get the best experience.
There is sex and dirty talk, and its oh so good. There is cursing. Ash especially has a potty mouth.
👍 (My favorite kind of story, but maybe not yours!)
♥ Story ♥
Man Hands is quite literally about hands that are manly, YUM, but also about so much more! All the characters in this book come in play, with two getting their own book. I have a sneaking suspicion that there will be more on that front so make sure to pay attention, because you may be revisiting that person later. I wouldn't even mind seeing Chandra get her own story, despite how much you initially loath her.
Brynn is a food blogger and newly divorced. She is currently unemployed and feeling sorry for herself despite wanting the divorce. The guy really wasn't a great husband and if it were not for her ex's actions later in the story, I would of thought he was just using her as a beard. Her two friends are determined to get her out of her gutter by taking her to a party.
... Let me rephrase that. ...
Her one friend, Sadie, is kind and wants her to get back into the dating game and find love. Her more abrasive friend, Ash, wants her to find Mr. Right Now for a hot and dirty ride. Combine this with Tiki drinks and the need to do something impulsive, and you get the night of her life that sets this whole thing into motion. And don't worry if Ash gets on your nerves for being a big B, cause she is going to get hers in the next book, and its going to be oh so good!
Tom Spanner is a TV personality focusing on home renovations. He does a lot of the work on screen with his Yummy Man Hands and the girls go wild! While his show is on hiatus, his friend Braht talks him into throwing a party at his house were the sexiest woman he has ever seen jumps him and gives him the sexiest experience he has ever had in his life.
.... And yes Braht is what he wants to be called, and yes, it is pronounced just like the sausage, and yes we will see him again in the book #2 and maybe find out what his real name is! ....
A pair of chocolate bunny panties is his glass slipper and the hunt is on for his dream woman. Once he finds her, the lines get skewed while he is trying to lay claim to her. It makes for laugh out loud good times!
Man Hands has a lot of tongue and cheek humor, mixed with steamy goodness, which lands this book on my Favorites list! Brynn's blogging reminds me of Delicious Dish from SNL.
The end is not quite a cliffhanger, but its a little bit for me as in that I have to wait till book #02 to hear the deets on the pantry incident. Those two are going to be a panty melting hot mess and it is going to be good! I can't wait!
FYI: At the end of the ebook version there is a sneak peak of #02: Man Card.
♥ Author ♥
Tanya Eby and Sarina Bowen make a great writing team. I look forward to listening to more from these two!
Tanya is a writer and a narrator. Be sure to check her out on both ends of the spectrum.
♥ Narrator(s) ♥
Luke Daniels and Erin Mallon both narrate this story on an alternating chapter basis. You get two versions of every character when its done this way. They both did a great job and it would be hard to pick a favorite among the two performances. I would of loved to of had this be a true Duet, but that's just me.
♥ Audio Production ♥
