Man Hands by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby

***OUT NOW***

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.

"Smells Manly and...What's the opposite of ironic?"
"I have no idea. Let's simplify it--we're looking for a man  instead of what you've been attracted to."
"What have I been attracted to?"
"Gwyneth Paltrow, I'm pretty sure. And every time I see her on TV, I just want to kick her."


The beginning of this story is completely hysterical, I have many-a-screenshot to prove it. 

Brynn has been in a funk after she decided to divorce her husband. A husband that basically was aloof that he was even married. While this all sounds sad, this story is really anything but dramatic. 

Brynn's friends take her to a party and after a run-in with her ex, she literally launches herself at a guy and ends up an internet "sensation". 

The story is about these two, Brynn and Tom, trying to calm down any media with their fake engagement, only they realize things don't feel so fake. 

Brynn seems to grow more confident everyday, and trusting in Tom. When you think their relationship is in jeopardy, Brynn comes out on top with all her matureness and un-needed drama, and that's what I liked so much about this book.,.aside from all the food and laughs. 

This is one crazy bunch that I think a lot of people can get down with. 

If you're looking for something light and fluffy with a dose of laughs and an HEA, this is definitely your book.



Man Card (Man Hands, #2) by Sarina Bowen, Tanya Eby

You met Ash and her co-worker Braht in Man Hands.
He’s slick. 
He’s an operator.
 He’s a manipulating, mansplaining party boy. 

So why can’t Ash get him out of her head?

What the Hail, Lani Lynn Vale ~ Release

Title: What the Hail
Series: Hail Raisers #4
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release: December 14, 2017

He’s wanted her since he repossessed her car and made her cry.
Baylor Hail knew two things. One, he hated crying females. Two, it was even worse when he was the one to make that female cry.
He never meant to do anything but his job, but when one thing leads to another, suddenly all he can think about is the broken woman whose car he towed.
She’s wanted him since he patted her back and told her it was okay to cry even though she knew he was lying. 
Nothing ever goes right for Lark.
Not when she got married. Not when she tried to leave her abusive husband, and not when she arrived in a new town with a fresh, clean slate.
That clean slate came courtesy of a secret organization that specializes in helping abused women find a way out. They set her up with a whole new life. It just turns out that it happened to be right smack dab in the middle of another woman’s old one.
That woman also happens to be down on her luck, something that Lark learns the hard way when on her first day there, her car is towed by a handsome stranger.
It’s been two years since she’s felt any kind of sexual attraction toward a man, and she reacts badly. We’re talking full-on, hysterical breakdown as he loads her car onto his tow truck while looking at her like she’s lost it.
Maybe being crazy isn’t all that bad.
The next thing she knows, she’s spending time with the sexy stranger and life couldn’t be better—even though she still doesn’t have a car.
She thinks she’s in the clear, that she’s got it all figured out… well, that is until her ex-husband finds her again.
Now the ball is in her sexy stranger’s court as he decides whether or not her kind of crazy is worth getting killed over.
Turns out, for Baylor Hail, maybe it is.

Really enjoyed this story. But then again I have that sensation with all of Lani's books. It's just a thing with me.

I read this book and realized one thing; being a male tow truck driver and someone who repossesses vehicles would really suck when it came to women. I mean, men are bad enough due to the violence n all. But us women can just cry and leave some men utterly catatonic. The phrase 'use it or lose it' comes to mind. And in a case of losing your car, I'd say now's the perfect time to "use it"! Which Lark does and she hits Baylor's soft spot.

I thought these two
were sexy, sweet, and funny together. Both have been through some very dark places in their lives and are now learning to live again. Throw in a sweet dog and YUP! There goes my heart! I give it 5 stars.
(I was given this ARC for an honest review)


I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance 
Release Date: March 8, 2018
Photographer: Furious Fotog Cover Model: Joe Adams
Winnie thinks she has the perfect life. Two beautiful, healthy children. A police officer husband. A job that she loves. Oh, and let’s not forget that she’s a nationally ranked marathon runner. Fast forward six months, and her perfect life has imploded. Winnie finds herself in a completely new world, and this new world is a brutal bitch. In this new life of hers, her husband is gone. He realizes, at the worst possible time, that he’s no longer in love with her. He’s in love with her best friend. So he leaves, and doesn’t look back. Her sixteen-year-old daughter is in trouble with the law, and she’s barely making ends meet thanks to losing the job that was keeping her and her tiny family afloat. Then, the last thing that could make it all bearable, her running, is ripped out from under her, too. Thanks to a spinal stroke that leaves her unable to walk, let alone run, she’s having to relearn how to do the simplest of tasks—such as putting on her own pants. She’s at the lowest of lows, and the last thing she wants is a sexy, bearded, motorcycle riding alpha to tell her how to live her life. But Steel Cross never asks her what she wants. *** The moment Steel Cross sees Winnie’s daughter steal some shoes for her younger brother, he knows he’s in trouble. He’s a sucker for misunderstood teens. After all, he was once one himself. He knows he can’t just walk away, and the moment he sees that troubled teen’s mother, he doesn’t just know it, he feels it. Down to the very bottom of his soul. With his share of hard knocks, he knows that he shouldn’t step in and make his move on a fellow police officer’s ex. There’s a code, after all, yet he just can’t seem to help himself. He’s done being the good guy. Sometimes he just wants to be bad. And Winnie makes him realize that being bad is still kind of good. As long as you’re with the right person.
