He puts the "screw" in screwball comedy...

BRYNNAt 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.

TOMAll 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.

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 with his manly manliness and affection.

Man Hands teaser 1

Brynn is a food blogger, and her foodie cravings left me perpetually hungry. Her quirkiness is completely adorable. Tom is a popular reality TV home renovator, so he really knows how to use his tools. And by tools I mean his hands. And his lips. And… well, you get the picture. Their love affair is amusing and sweetly sexy.

The storyline sometimes has a touch of cheese, as to be expected with slapstick comedy, but it’s all in good fun. Every chapter is packed full of such frivolity that I giggled throughout. I loved the hysterical internal monologues that occasionally slip out.

Brynn’s best girlfriends, Ash and Sadie, are the perfect sidekicks. Ash, in particular, is hilarious with her potty mouth and zany ideas. I’m looking forward to reading all about Ash’s romance with Braht (yes, that’s his real name), her arch nemesis, in Man Card!
