WHY I READ IT
The antagonizing relationship between Braht and Ash in Man Hands had me wanting more!
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Nothing ventured, nothing banged…
I still don’t know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor–our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down…
It can never happen again. I don’t even like Braht. He’s too slick. He’s a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can’t I get him out of my head?
There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She’s the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don’t call her the Ashkicker for nothing.
Eventually I’ll win her over…if my past doesn’t ruin everything first.
There was a lot to love about Man Card, but I think what I loved the most was that it wasn’t at all what I expected. Coming right off of the first book in this series of standalones, Man Hands, I expected the same raunchy, laugh out loud romantic comedy. While Man Card has plenty of stomach-clenching comedy, it is saturated with swoon-worthy, heartwarming goodness. I’m not even sure how to put it into the right words. This book just made me feel so good!
“Step one: she’s here. Step ten-thousand: she stays.”
Here’s what I loved about Braht. He was about as far from alpha as he could have been when we met him in Man Hands. Big into manicures, name brand clothing, and facials, Braht seemed to have relinquished his “man card.” That is until the woman he’s been after for years meets some trouble. Braht would do anything to keep Ash safe and make her his.
At first, Ash comes across as a man-hating, cold, unfeeling woman. This was my unfavorable opinion of her at first. But wow, was I ever wrong. Ash has overcome more in her life than most people ever would, and her self-image is tarnished. If only she could see herself through Braht’s eyes.
The push and pull between Braht and Ash made for some serious sexual tension. Even a glance from one of them was hot. Every interaction between them had the potential to end up with them tangled in the sheets. And the bedroom was where alpha Braht came out to play.
Man Card was heavy on the swoon and low on the drama. No surprise that the writing was simply exceptional and the characters likable and well fleshed out. Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby are a readers dream. Their storytelling is flawless. It’s the kind of book you want to lose yourself in over and over again.
