Welcome to What-To-Read Wednesday! This week Angela recommends:
Man Hands by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby
This book is so damn funny. Sarina Bowen is on my auto-buy list, but Tanya Eby is not a name familiar to me, so I really didn’t know what to expect. But I’ve enjoyed every author collaboration Ms. Bowen has been a part of, so of course I had to try this one out and I am so glad I did.
Blurb from Goodreads:
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.
So basically you have Brynn, a new divorcee who is an out of work English Professor, with a passion for food and blogging and who also has two amazing friends. They are her support system and have her back no matter what. Brynn is feeling low, due mainly to her passionless marriage and state of unemployment. But her friends have a cure! Well, at least a pick me up anyway… go jump on the first man who absolutely does not fit her type and have an all out sexfest. So she does. And that is how she meets Tom.
Tom is on hiatus from his HG show Mr. Fixit Quick, and is also at a low point in his life after an on air marriage proposal gone wrong. Things are about to get better because Brynn sees him across the way at a party and quite literally jumps into his arms and kisses the living daylights out of him. But it doesn’t stop there and they have some dirty, sexy, hot boat house sex.
I can’t even get into the craziness that is this book, you’ll have to experience it for yourself, I mean you really do. I never knew what was going to happen next or what would come out of these characters mouths. I might have laughed out loud a few times. Just know that there is a HEA and the next book looks like it will be even crazier and funnier than this one.
This is a fast, fun, very sexy read and just what I needed at the end of this year.
