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.

Jenny’s Review

Looking for a book that will give you love, some sass, a lot of laughs, foodgasims, some definite sexy scenes, but most of all, do you want a book that will make you smile, then this is it. Man Hands is sweet, it’s so fun, and it’s low on angst. These authors are dynamite for a romcom duo.
Tom is a single, sought after 38 year old bachelor that is a hot corn dog on a stick. He knows he wants happiness, he just can’t seem to get it right and definitely hasn’t found it with the right woman, yet. He’s a ‘celebrity’ in reality TV, hosting his own fix it up show. And he’s good at it, and a lot of other things ?
Brynn. How the heck do you explain this woman. She is a lonely, depressed, beautiful woman that has just started a new life as a recent divorcee. She’s ready to find some fun, someone that will cherish who she really is, someone that will love everything about her, especially her passion at all her beloved hobbies. She is just simply an all around amazing person.
When these two characters are thrown into a unique situation, forced into a “fake” relationship, which I never saw it as being – fake, they do it with humor, with passion, and with heart (unknowingly). I laughed a lot throughout this book, I loved a lot of it, I really enjoyed it, gave me a little different read that I needed, yet I still had some eye roll moments. It lacked in the angst department for me, but it wasn’t in a bad way. I still loved it and I CAN NOT wait to get more to this crazy hilarious group!!!! I’ll be patiently waiting to get the next installment on Ash.
