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.


There’s just something about a man who works with his hands that illustrates exactly the kind of hardworking man he is…


When those rough and callused hands know how to manipulate more than power tools and hammers, the woman who benefits from a working man’s hands as well as his entire toned physique is definitely one lucky lady.

Tom is not your everyday handy man, but he sure does know his way around a rebuild, a remodel, or any other kind of fixer upper his customers or his producers throw at him. 10 seasons as the host of Mr. Fixit Quick has allowed the world to see Tom’s carpentry skills from the comforts of their own home, and while he has a throng of adoring fans, he also had a very public proposal gone wrong, which he is trying to recover from, declaring a yearlong celibacy and a hiatus from the show that made him a household name.

Brynn is a heroine who readers will relate to, especially if they’ve had to put themselves back into the dating world, like Brynn does, after being out of it for so long, and because of the way things went down with Brynn’s ex and how he made her feel insignificant and frumpy, readers will connect with her insecurities and her fears, especially when it comes to a man like Tom – a man who is so not her usual type – but maybe that’s why Tom makes her feel so much more than she ever felt with her ex-husband or anyone else.

Tom and Brynn’s lives may be drastically different and their personalities may not mesh with the kind of worlds they respectively reside in, but what they do give one another is a way to get over their heartbreak and perhaps even realize that other people’s cruel acts and motives have nothing to do with who Tom and Brynn are; they’re not the problem but they were also not the others’ solutions, which is actually better for them in the long run.

Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby wrote a fantastic dual point of view romantic comedy. I adored Tom and his ‘man hands’ and Brynn and her ‘Dips and Balls,’ and the drama that’s created around Tom and Brynn’s epic boathouse rendezvous may bring unwarranted chaos to both of their lives, but it’s also what gives Tom a way to reunite with the woman who rocked his world when she pretty much tackled him the first night they met.

I can’t wait for Man Card because I have a feeling that Ash isn’t going to make things easy for Braht regardless of how many orgasms he can give her!

Nothing ventured, nothing banged…

I still don’t know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor–our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down…
It can never happen again. I don’t even like Braht. He’s too slick. He’s a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can’t I get him out of my head?
There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She’s the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don’t call her the Ashkicker for nothing.
Eventually I’ll win her over…if my past doesn’t ruin everything first.
