Man Hands (Man Hands #1) by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby


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.

4.5 Pee in your Pants Funny

If I had to pick one book to read to put a smile on my face Man Hands would no doubt be it. It was witty, funny, entertaining and all around FUN to read.

Sarina Bowen is a one-click author for me and this is my first Tanya Eby book. Let me just say they are geniuses working together.

So what is Man Hands?

Throw in a quirky slightly curvy girl, a handy-man and second chances to living life one fix it project and one baking dish at at time.  Yeah that didn’t make sense, but it did in my head.

Man Hands was just FUNNY! 

Brynn is a single and recently divorced gal. Think Bridget Jones’ Diary. She’s kind of curvy and she’s in a rut and what does she do? She goes to a party and throws herself at the first guy she sees. Like she runs into him and jumps into his arms like a Koala bear and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Oh man, my love for Brynn is off the charts high. She’s so hilarious and I love her inner monologues and if you know anything about me, I hate reading inner monologues.  I love reading her and I wanted her to get her second chance again.

Tom is the perfect man for Brynn. He’s honest, goes with the flow and can fix anything! Do I need to mention I’m totally into men who can wear a tool belt?

The best part of the book is the chemistry between Brynn and Tom. It’s really develops in the book and you just can’t stop reading it. I read this book in one sitting and the only breaks I took was to change my pants because I laughed so hard I peed in them!

If you are in a funk this book will brighten your mood and put a mega smile on your face.
