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. Im still taking a hard pass. 

Free designer cocktails,
 they say. And thats 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.

Brynn is newly divorced and in a bit of a depressed phase. Her husband wasn't sexually attracted to her anymore. She lost her job. She eats too much.
Enter her two besties Ash & Sadie. They think she desperately needs to have sex with a real manly man - not with some skinny vegan type like her ex.
That's where Tom comes in. He's hanging around Braht's party not knowing how he will survive this one year of celibacy he promised himself after being dumped by his almost fiancée ... when the hottest woman he's ever seen literally comes running at him, jumps into his arms and starts kissing him.
WTF? But he wouldn't be Tom if he wouldn't use that weird moment to live out the most erotic minutes of his life.
But then she's gone - but ... he finds her again - and now they could live happily ever after, right? Nope - there might be a tiny little scandal surrrounding those two now and they have to 'work' together to fix it ...
But of course the amazing attraction is still there - why not just keep having sexy times while trying to get their lives back on track... nobody is developing any feelings, right?!


OMG that was hilarious!
Make sure you're not in a public place while reading this. There are lots of LOL moments and LOTS of non-mentionable body parts are mentioned - non stop. Those three girls are not shy when they talk about how to get Brynn back on the 'horse'.
I fell in love with those 3 in the first chapter and then we meet Tom and he's sooo adorable too.
This was an amazing book!
Hilarious and adorable and sweet and HOT and sexy and ... there's really nothing more I could say. You need to read it. It was the most amazing Romantic Comedy. And I SO need this to be on netflix or passionflix asap!

The only thing I didn't love-love was the cover. Those colors just don't work for me. I would've preferred a real person and not such a weird 'painting' thingy. BUT - who cares about the cover when the story inside is AMAZING!!

MAN HANDS was the most hilarious & adorable romance of 2017!
• Hilarious • Erotic • Adorable •
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Tom! This one is MINE (and that includes his hands and everything else)!!!! ☺

....  and now hurry book #2 - I need to read Braht's story!!!

Copy received for an honest review

Tom and Brynn's story really does start off with a bang, and had me laughing from then on.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this new collaboration, as Tanya Eby is a new to me author.  However I should not have questioned it, as Ms Bowen's collaborations with Elle Kennedy have been amazing, I should have known these ones with Ms Eby would be great too.

I don't want to give too much away about Tom and Brynn's story, as I feel that you need to just dive in blind and enjoy the ride.

I adored the writing.  There is great banter, inner monologues (usually not such a fan of too much of that) and quirky, fun characters that I couldn't help but fall for them all.

There are great secondary characters, and I cannot wait for Ash and Braht's story (which I have already preordered!)

Now I am impatiently waiting for January to get here.

And get out of my way!  I need a set of those man hand for myself!
