First things first-I'm biased where Sarina Bowen is concerned. I'll read anything she writes and YES I did say READ. That being said, her audios are some of my all time favs for many many reasons (HIM/US are MUST LISTENS) but their humor isn't usually the first reason on the list. All of her books have funny moments, but obviously the addition of Tanya Eby as co-writer inspired some seriously comedic moments.
This book is light on angst and drama, heavy on "I Love Lucy" style moments that will make you laugh out loud. The combination of the "gardener" Tom and aspiring food blogger and recently divorced Brynn are excellent. They're real people with real bodies, self-consciousness and life problems. Listening to them navigate their issues to find each other amongst all the noise is very satisfying and their foibles along the way are hysterical.
Erin Mallon is perfection as always. I'm not sure there's an audiobook by her that I wouldn't listen to. Her male voice is on point and always sexy. Luke Daniels is relatively new to me in romance and I loved his performance. His female voice wasn't falsetto, just a higher tone, which I really appreciate. Plus when "little Tom" is speaking-it's hilarious.
Get some Man Hands and you won't be disappointed. I'm really looking forward to the next book from the dynamic duo of authors!

Of course the names are what brought me into this project and I’m so glad that I did take a listen. To normally see Tanya’s name on the narrator end of the credits, I was of course interested to see how things would go on the author end and it was not a disappointment!
The storyline was light and humorous. Not a lot of angst to contend with, just enough to grip you in and keep you listening. While the plot was a predictable one, the aspects that they pulled in to make it their own truly made it special and credit worthy.
The character chemistry was so incredible. Right off the bat. These characters went from strangers to not and it was so believable and had me completely obsessed with them. The female lead is a bigger girl and that is not a typical body type and it was so refreshing. Especially with the way that the male lead described her and her sexiness. It was so believable and it actually went so far as to make my curves feel more sexy. That is the talent of a book to transcend to the reader in that way. I was really, really in love with these characters. Not to mention, hello. A carpenter. The way the female lead described him hammering and nailing and... drilling. This book is so, so sexy.
Very well done. Loved it.
