Book Review - MAN HANDS by SARINA BOWEN & TANYA EBY
If you are looking for a laugh out loud rom com with a sweet and unconventional romance then this book will definitely check off all the boxes. I've been in a little bit of a book slump so when I opened this up and read the very first line I was instantly smiling and laughing. I knew right away that my book slump was over. This book was just hilarious, the characters had my sides hurting throughout the entire thing. In particular Brynn, Sadie and Ashley. I mean these girls remind me of my friends, they are a little bit crass, have no filters and are loyal to one another. Let's talk about a first impression when Sadie and Ashley are on a mission to get Brynn over her slump after her divorce. They dare her to jump I mean literally jump on the first single man she sees at a party they are attending. What ensues is complete comedy that had me smiling and laughing uncontrollably. Of course, Brynn finds herself in a "situation" following and her and Tom start off in an unconventionally hysterical yet somewhat precarious situation. There are definitely a bunch of sweet moments in this book as well that will have you all giddy a feeling the romance brewing between Brynn and Tom. Their situation "sticky" and they definitely have something "building" between them. This was the start of a series that I am definitely looking forward to. One of the best rom coms I've read in awhile. This book is going on my favs read list and it's one that will have me wanting to reread it when I'm in a slump and need a good laugh.
He puts the "screw" in screwball comedy... BRYNN 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. TOM 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.
