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.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

First of all, let me tell you how much I appreciate this book cover.  It is certainly an attention grabber and just like the cover, the story within is too! I absolutely adore romantic comedy and when combined with my appreciation for reality home improvement shows it’s a win-win!

Man Hands is about a newly divorced, unemployed woman named Brynn who is forcibly catapulted into dating world by her two besties Ashley and Sadie. Her esteem is at an all-time low and they decide she is in dire need of a random rebound. Not just any rebound but a man who will have you growling, fumbling, grunting and biting… Her “legs” find the random”around” Tom.

Let me just tell you what a perfect rebound this guy is. Tom too recently ended a relationship – in a public and humiliating way, I might add. He deserved some “fun” and he found it unexpectedly in quirky and sassy Brynn. What was so great about this couple was despite the initial awkwardness they simply got each other. There was no pretense ever between these two and the growling, fumbling, grunting, sweating? Porn-worthy, like literally.

It isn’t just the perfect balance between the humor and romance what got me but is the dynamics among all of the characters involved that will keep me coming back for more. I enjoyed this book and can not wait for the belly laughs to be had in the second book titled Man Card.
