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.
What I thought about Man Card
Man Card is the second novel from Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby. Like Man Hands, Man Card is a flirty, humorous story with a nice level of drama.
Braht and Ash are in a sales competition at their real estate firm and love to rib each other, that is until they find out the depth of their sexual attraction. It's off the charts!
Their relationship builds a bit more slowly than their physical connection. Secrets get revealed, and Braht shows the depth of his love for Ash. It's really quite sweet and has a "Gift of the Magi" sort of twist at the end that's just adorable. I loved these two together -- it's a fabulous love story.
I did find it a little tough to get into, the opening scene just didn't get me hooked to reading the book. Writing humor is not an easy task, and sometimes Ash's internal thoughts didn't hit my funny bone quite right. The more dramatic ending more than made up for it though.
Man Card left me smiling. It's a terrific contemporary love story.
