This collaboration ROCKED!!!!

From the very first sentence I was hooked. I made the mistake of reading on the train and had to really control myself not to laugh out loud. My face was already cracking, and hurting from all the smiling. So yeah, this book is a LOL – kind of novel. A rom-com that will make you crack a smile for sure.

Which I needed badly.

Man Hands was much more than I expected.

I like and enjoy Sarina Bowen’s books. Always have always will. But Tanya Eby was new to me. I’m always astonished how collaborations can change how authors sound. How every author duo sound very different to their individual books.

I have now read Sarina Bowen by herself, Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy, and Sarina Bowen & Sarah Mayberry. This collaboration has to be the second best, right after my favorite series HIM & US. Whereas HIM & US was very emotional, Man Hands was incredibly funny, light hearted and just a blast to read.

Man Hands had me cracking up!!!

I absolutely adored the writing style, dialogues, and inner monologues. Gosh, how much I chuckled reading this sweet and fast paced novel about a blogger and a hunk of a TV show host. And what a unique and entertaining plot it was.

I don’t want to give away too much.

All I want to say is that Man Hands was FUNNY! Hilarious. Sweet. AND. Sexy!!!! I pretty much read that book as fast as I could. I even texted TJ about how much I loved it and how happy I was reading a book that pulled me in and made me laugh from the very first moment. The supporting cast was SUPERB!!!! So amazing that I can’t wait for Ash and Braht’s story. OMG – Braht ♡♡♡. He was such a conundrum. I wanted more of him.

Fortunately I’ll get more of Braht in  Man Card, book 2 of this series. At this point I’m pretty much in love with him – you’ll see what I mean. His story is going to be GOOD!!! Such a unique character. So not regular hero material which makes it PERFECT!!!

All in all Man Hands was a great first book in a promising new collaboration. It wasn’t perfect – but it was a solid performance that made me smile and not wanting to put my kindle down. AND I can’t wait to read book 2 – so mission accomplished. 😀



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.

    1. I had Bratwurst stuck in my head 😀 Braaaaatwurst!!!! lol – I can’t wait to read Braht’s story. It’s going to be very interesting since he is such a different and unique personality – I hope they give him an amazing plot as well as letting him be as unorthodox as he seemed to be.
