Nothing beats the winter blues then a romantic comedy with well-developed characters and hot sexy times. Man Card by authors Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby, is a fun read that kept me entertained from start to finish. This is the second book from the Man Hands series and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. However, I would recommend reading book one, Man Hands, in order to truly understand and be delighted by the happenings of the present. Ash Power and Sebastian Braht are extremely competitive realtors. Their attraction to each other began slowly at first, and then BAM, they could not get enough of each other. Although Braht and his over enthusiastic manscaping needs always felt Ash was the one for him, Ash enjoyed their flirtatious and competitive camaraderie just a bit more. Ash's tortured past has always kept her romantic rendezvous's at a distance, yet Braht pushes all her buttons in the most desirable ways. The authors combine excitement, longing, and honesty into this comedic treat. I immediately connected with both Ash and Braht, and there was never a moment that I did not want them to be together. Ash's two best friends reminded me of the friendships between the women from the Sex and the City TV series; fun-loving and always there for each other. Overall, a solid read. Complimentary copy provided.

Man Card by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby is the second book in their new Man Hands series. Hilarious to the point of laugh out loud funny, this book is also very emotionally engaging. A deeper emotional layer that finally lets you get a peek behind the brave and confident facades of Ash and Braht. Braht's had the hots for Ash since he first set eyes on her. Ash, however, wants absolutely nothing to do with Braht. He is infuriating and annoying and entirely too good looking to be safe to be around. When it turns out that no matter what Ash does, Braht is always around, she begins to crave his presence. With a continuing time line from book one a plenty of interactions with the beloved secondary characters I really can't wait for the next book in this series. Enjoy!

I received a free copy through the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion. 4 stars — Well that was just some good old fashioned fun goodness!! A perfect complement to Man Hands, while you don’t need to read the first book to enjoy this one, I highly recommend that you check out both. Though I’m sure anyone who skipped Brynn and Tom’s story will immediately want to go back and rectify that after devouring this one. I didn’t experience quite as much sympathetic embarrassment with Man Card, which was a relief, but it was still zany and filled with awesomely quirky characters. And it had a bit of a side mystery/suspense element as well! Can I just say that I never expected to fall in love with Braht?? I mean, I didn’t expect to dislike him in Man Hands or anything, but I honestly didn’t expect to be completely drawn to him and sucked in by his many facets and just plain hilariousness and adorableness. I think I love him because he shirks society’s views on what a man should be and does so with confidence and panache. And while my hubby is not anything like Braht, he also shirks society’s views on what a man should be in his own right (with confidence and panache), so it was a no brainer that I would be attracted to Braht. It was so refreshing to have a hero that is confident, and successful, and in touch with their emotional side, and makes no apologies for the things he loves…basically the antithesis of toxic masculinity. And seriously sexy too! He made me laugh a lot, but he also made me hot with his antics in the bedroom. I loved that he was all in with Ash, even as he wasn’t getting a huge return on his investment in her…but he’d fallen for her, and he was going to keep pursuing and using any situation to his advantage. And he really was sweet, you could feel how much he cared for her and wanted to protect her. Ash was a bit harder for me to get a handle on…because of what she was dealing with wrt DWEEB, she wasn’t who I was expecting wrt who I met in Man Hands. But I think a lot of times our internal selves can be a bit different from what we project to others. I loved her determination, her passion for winning, her love of organizing, her reward stickers…these all sound like little things, but they are just great examples of who she is. I loved seeing her interact with her parents, and be there for her girls…even if she doesn’t feel super maternal or anything. Heck, her awkward interactions with children spoke to my own awkward self. I really appreciated that she wasn’t super mean to Braht either…I admit I was a bit worried about that, but I enjoyed the conflict she had in her own head wrt to him. Both of their past stories hit me in the feels, though perhaps Braht’s more than Ash’s. I felt for young Braht and what fell on his shoulders, whereas I couldn’t quite get into the mindset of young Ash and why she made certain choices. I loved watching them together…fighting and arguing and making up and the nicknames and the teasing…it was all just good stuff. And I loved watching them with their friends/family too. These books have strong secondary casts, and the group scenes were just as much fun as the scenes with just the two of them. I have high hopes for a Sadie story, but is it too greedy of me to want a Bramly story as well?? Just putting that out there… So yeah. Fun from start to finish with a good dose of heart.

This is book # 2, in the Man Hands series. This book can be read as a standalone novel,. For reader enjoyment, and understanding of the series, I recommend reading this fun series in order! Ash is thoroughly disgusted for being attracted to the man who, is basically her nemesis at work. Rivals competing for each sale dollar, but who cannot resist the physical attraction that seems to consume then whenever they are in the same room together. If only she could keep her hands, and her lips off of him! Braht and his scheming ways only seem to entice Ash closer - while at the same time give her a reason to pull away from him. He really does want her in his arms and in his bed. How to keep a woman who is so determined to stay away? This was such a fun read. Truly inspiring, by way of the funny schemes the characters come up with to one-up each other, as well as the banter. There is plenty of hat in this one too, folks. Each page nearly singes your fingers as you read the fiery way these two go at it with every turn. I though it was a good addition to the Man Hands series. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.
