    4.25 stars!!!OMG. This book was one of the funniest books I’ve read in a while. I was in the mood to laugh when I started reading it, so it was perfect timing for me! Sarina Bowen is an author who never disappoints, and I’ve never read Tanya Eby, but together they did a great job with Man Hands. To be quite honest, I didn’t love the title or cover, but I still picked it up because HELLO- SARINA BOWEN! And I’m so glad I did! If you love fu...

    4.5 For The Love Of Balls Stars Well I wanted fun and boy did I get it!!I started laughing on the first page and didn't stop, some of it was little giggles but most of the time I was bent over, drink coming out of nose snort laughing (not literally) well maybe the snorting hehe. Brynn is newly divorced, to be fair it was her seeking the divorce. Brynn's ex was not attentive to her needs in any way and when he tried to fulfill her bedroom needs le...

    4.5 STARS I want this woman with every ounce of my being. Since I’m six-three and two hundred fifteen pounds, that’s a lot of ounces. Dear author duo, I have only one thing to say to you about any and all of your future releases together.Oh yeah. It's like that. We're totes besties now. Side note: I just threw up in my mouth a little from actually typing the words totes and besties.But I digress as always. So where was I? Ah yes. Deez nuts....

    ✮✮✮ 4.5 STARS ✮✮✮ Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books Well slap my ass and call me Sally. This is one of those books that you don't see coming. I should have. It has the name Sarina Bowen on it and she's always good for a surprise.Brynn is a quirky, sweet heroine who just came out on the other side of a divorce, that wasn't amicable and stripped her of her self esteem. When she jumps Tom, literally, he isn't her usual type, he is so much m...

    Looking for a book that will give you love, some sass, a lot of laughs, foodgasims, some definite sexy scenes, but most of all, do you want a book that will make you smile, then this is it. Man Hands is sweet, it’s so fun, and it’s low on angst. These authors are dynamite for a romcom duo. Tom is a single, sought after 38 year old bachelor that is a hot corn dog on a stick, in others words, he’s hot. He knows he wants happiness, he just can...

    ***IT'S ALIVE!!!***Shook me all morning long…Have you ever tried to laugh silently and it all goes horribly wrong? Well, this book had me trying very hard to suppress my laughter. I made the mistake of trying to sneakily read Man Hands before starting another crazy day in the Sassy household. The house is quiet (except for the light snores from hubby), I haven’t turned on my work or Mum brain and my computer and phone haven’t been activated...

    4 stars!Review at Of Pens and Pages.Man Hands is a hilarious, hot, over the top romantic comedy about a girl who loves balls and a guy who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. It's HGTV + all the cooking shows in the world, and I'm obsessed. The story has two great characters, food, tools, and lots of sexy times. Brynn was such an enjoyable character to get to know. I especially love seeing her writing on her food blog. She's funny, passionate ...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKMan Hands is the first co-written book by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby but I hope there will be many more to come. These two perfectly combined their writing styles to where I couldn't tell where one author stopped and the other began. They created these characters that had me rooting them on and hoping they would find their way to a HEA and for that I count myself a fan. This book started off with me laughing and smil...

    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.

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...

    ➳Hands down... one of the funniest books I have read in such a long time... ➳My love for rom coms is very minimal and when I first read the synopsis of this puppy, I was not that thrilled to read it. But I have slowly become obsessed with Sarina's writing so my investment in this book was a "YES!" After reading this beauty though... HELL YES! My god! I am not the biggest fan of rom-coms, especially cheesy ones like R.S. Grey's, but this one t...

    Brynn, a newly divorcee, jobless, tries to find a staight path back to herself, to re-new her self-esteem, and what's the best way to do that then to listen to your best friends' advice: "What you need is to be fucked." and voila, the premise for a steamy read starts to pick up to right contures...LOL, then they drag her to a party where Brynn is once again challenged to ACT in a totally different manner then her own, so she does - she runs, and ...

Bowen & Eby nail it with their engaging plot, lovable characters, and unbeatable comedic timing. I couldn’t get enough.

    Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby are a match made in comedy heaven. It’s hard to believe that Man Hands is their first collaborative effort. Their writing styles are very complimentary, which leads to effortless, laugh out loud storytelling.As a recent divorcée, Brynn has fallen into a life of insecurity and more than a touch of self-pity. Tom is the perfect catch—literally—and comes along at the just the right time to sweep her off her feet wit...

    OMG! I loved this book! It was downright HILARIOUS! In addition, it was charming, awkward, comical, romantic, and just DAMN GOOD! Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby make one HELL of a pair! MAN HANDS is the start of a series that I know that I’m going to absolutely LOVE! Our two main characters, Brynn and Tom, along with the rest of the cast make up an amazing group of people that you will absolutely ADORE! I’m already excited for what these two will...

    Stripped to its core, ‘Man Hands’ is about a woman reeling from her divorce, then getting back on the saddle with a one-night stand by riding a jaded womaniser of a tv personality after a crazy evening when she bumps into her ex…thereafter does a Cinderella-disappearing act on him thereafter. And predictably, this celebrity—used to female attention—is intrigued because the sex is the most memorable he’s ever had. Then comes a sex tape...

    FUNNNNEEEEEE!SB is just an auto-read for me regardless of who she teams with but this Tanya Eby person has her own magic happening. The WAGs series is comedic but this has a bawdy silliness that I found refreshing. I laughed through an entire chapter and that hasn't happened to me in a long, looooonnnnnnnngggggg time.Brynn is a great character. She's a little flighty, really honest, kind and has a tendency to accidentally verbalize her thoughts. ...

    If there's one adjective that would fit Man Hands perfectly it's: funny! You won't be able to stay serious while reading this book. I promise I didn't laugh that much with any of the books I've read. Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby are a perfect match. First time they write together and I hope there will be many more to come. I'm already patiently waiting for Man Card.The strength of Man Hands is without a doubt the strong characters and the way they a...

    I’m beginning to detect a pattern in terms of my enjoyment levels and Sarina Bowen collaborations (unless with Elle Kennedy). And to me, Man Hands just didn’t feel like one of her books. For every plus point, there was a negative, the innuendo-laden humour and giggles were taken past the point of funny and although I’ll likely give the next one a try as I did like Ash and Braht, this just didn’t hit the spot.Copy received exchange for an ...

The first thing I noticed about 'Man Hands' was the chapter headings, "I love Hardwood" and "Look at My Sausage", just to name a few, were so clever and unique I knew I was in for a glorious ride,Brynn's marriage just ended and with that comes a load of self-doubt and fe...

    I really like Sarina Bowen's Vermont series, so I knew that I'd like this one. I'm not familiar with Tanya Eby. I enjoy co-authored book since they're usually so high energy.This one delivered on that. This book started off with a bang. Literally.The humor is raunchy sexy. Brynn is fresh off a break up. She was dumped. Then fired from her university teaching job. A woman scorned. Two best friends. Wacky best friends (Ash & Sadie). The 3 of them t...
