“They were just fun to read about.”
~ Under the Covers

I admit it.  I was salivating to read this book.  In the first book, MAN HANDS, we are introduced to this couple and they basically hate each other and are forced to work together in selling their best friends’ house.  I loooove a good enemies to lovers story and MAN CARD delivers on that.  But I think in some ways it fell a little short of my expectations in comparison to the first book.

Did I think this was funny?  Yes, but not as funny as the first book.  Did I think there was some crazy chemistry between Ash and Braht?  Yes, but they also got on my nerves a little bit.  I was especially annoyed with Ash’s personality because there was another side to her that I didn’t necessarily found as endearing as the image I had of her from the first book.  She came across as less than the strong woman I wanted her to be given the situation she had to endure.

And then there’s Braht.  I liked him but he’s not the type of hero that would ever go down as my book boyfriend.  He was endearing at times and you can’t help but laugh at him sometimes too.

The great thing about this story that kept me turning the pages and smiling was the banter between them.  How competitive they are.  Some of Braht’s crazy ideas to drive Ash crazy (like the photos while she’s showing the house).  They were just fun to read about.

So while this was a great read to pass the time, it’s not one that I think will stay with me for a while after.  However, I’m still excited about this series and I can’t wait for the third in the series.

About Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen writes steamy, angsty contemporary romance from Vermont's Green Mountains. (Her ancestors began logging and farming Vermont during the 18th century. These were rugged, outdoor types without benefit of a laptop or a good latte. It boggles the mind.)

Sarina enjoys skiing, skating and good food. She lives in Windsor County, Vermont, with her family, eight chickens and too much ski gear and hockey equipment.

About Tanya Eby

Tanya is a starving artist without the starving part. Maybe, then, she's a snacking artist. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her two kids and tiki-obssessed husband and writes quirky fiction.

After writing a gripping, dark, gothic novel IN THE GARDEN ROOM, Tanya decided to switch it up. She's hard at work on a romcom, which doesn't feel like work at all.

She likes to keep things interesting.

She is also an award-winning narrator and audiobook publisher. She has been lucky to narrate some of the best books around...600 and counting! Many of the books she narrates are NY Times bestsellers.

She loves the challenge of narrating and truly adores words. Reading other writers' work encourages her to keep working on her own.

That’s disappointing when a character is different from how he/she was previously…and not in a good way.
