Review by Wendy ♥ Man Card (Man Hands, #2) by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby

A Review by Wendy

4.5 Like Champagne or Caviar Stars
* * * * 1/2  
Spoiler Free  
So Wendy what the hell does Champagne or Caviar have to do with this book, Huh....Well, many feel those items are an acquired taste...Some love the taste of Champagne with all the fizz that can go to your head...and then there is the salty taste of Caviar... it can be a wonder or too much...It just depends on who makes the product and the quality level....

Man Card (Man Hands, #2) by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby is like those luxury items...These two authors created a series of characters which have a special, humorous, sometimes biting way of communicating and because of their talent and ability to build characters and story...this particular series is like the best Champagne and Caviar...Rich, Silky and Oh, So Very Special.

These characters were introduced in Man Hands.
We knew right away another book needed to be done...they were people who were begging to have their romance told... They just didn't know it yet...

Well, that isn't totally correct... Braht knew from his first moment with Ash. These two are competing Real Estate Agents who are part of the same company. Each person is driven to be the best but for different internal reasons. We learn of their back stories and as the story progresses, it is touching to see the impact family actions can make.

Now as to these specific people...Ash is beautiful, brilliant and capable. She is organized and has a ex whose behavior made her be more than cautious. She had to be watchful.

Braht...this is a man who loves the finer things in life...and with good cause. He has worked to take care of his brother and ever success has been fought for...

So if Braht doesn't fit the usual Alpha Male Picture... do not let that fool you. This is a man so secure in who he is and what he is packing... he can do mani/pedis with the best of them. No really... Braht is an enlightened MetroSexual of the highest order...

And there is a moment in this enjoyable read where he lays it out to Ash just how a Real Man should be with a woman....Every Single Word is perfect. If that is all you take away from this story... then you got what was important.

Although there was so much more...Laughs and Sexy times which deserve a review all on their own....and a story which worked for me.

This series is fun, sexy and I have a sneaky suspicion Braht's brother might have his own book coming... and that will be fantastic. Here's to more first rate Champagne and Caviar!

A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

7737308 Sarina Bowen is the USA Today bestselling author of many things, including: the True North series, Him/Us and the WAGs series with Elle Kennedy, The Ivy Years series and the Brooklyn Bruisers. And more! Are you looking for a friends-to-lovers story or maybe even a secret baby book? You can read a list of Sarina's books broken out by trope and style.
2926031 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.
