The Blurb:

Nothing ventured, nothing banged…

Ash
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?

Braht
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.

My Thoughts:

How can a book that I gave a four-star rating to be a disappointment?Well, it’s just that the first one was sooo good! Maybe it’s because I didn’t have a road trip with my bestie as as a backdrop for this one that I didn’t find it quite as uproariously funny.

But it was still great. Braht and Ash fight about everything and you can tell that the passion between the two of them is so intense that it sometimes makes them fight. The thing is, Ash is right in the blurb above. Braht is a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes. And while that makes him infinitely entertaining, it doesn’t make him quite as lovable as Tom was in Man Hands. Furthermore, I love Ash’s sarcastic, go-getter, ball-busting personality. But she is not the broken heroine that we root for like Brynn was in book #1.

But the book has a solid love story, two lovers who are definitely entertaining and true humor. Definitely worthy of a four-star review.

Final Verdict:

So, I gave Man Hands eleventy stars. And as funny and lovable as Ash and Braht are… they are no Brynn and Tom. There were giggles and aws, but not swoons and guffaws. Still, I’m loving this series by Bowen and Eby. I can’t wait to see what they bring in Boy Toy, so I’ll be back for book #3.
