‘Man Cuffed’ is the latest book in Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby’s romantic comedy series ‘Man Hands’. Just like the previous books in the series, this book is light, funny and romantic.
Meg is a struggling actress and after a decade of rejections, she is reconsidering her career choice. While trying to get an acting job, she is working as a waitress in order to support herself. During one of her shifts, she is serving for a bachelorette party and they are waiting for the grand entrance of the strippers. When cops shows up, Meg jumps into the action and try to help one of them to strip. However, the stripper cop is not really a stripper. Whoopsie! Macklin James Maguire, aka Mac, is our not-stripper cop. He is super hot with a stripper body ( 😀 ), protective and loyal. He loves his job and enjoys rescuing people who is in need. His only flaw is his emotional unavailability and commitment phobia. When he runs in to his new neighbor, he knows she is trouble with a capital T, thanks to their first run in. She is the hot waitress, who tried to strip him in the middle of a restaurant. Even though, their chemistry is sizzling hot, he knows acting on it will only cause more of mess. While fighting the attraction, thanks to their thin walls and Mac’s balcony adventures, Meg knows how colorful Mac’s bedroom life is. After a suspicious afternoon, Meg decides to play detective and Meg being Meg finds it smart to break-in to a cop’s apartment. Of course she gets caught red-handed and now needs to bargain for a jail-free card 🙂 So her plea bargain is to be a fake date for Mac’s sister’s wedding. Soon the plea bargain turns into super hot affair. I loved the banter between Meg and Mac and their relationship moved from friendship to a hot, funny relationship. My first impression of Meg, while reading ‘Boy Toy’ wasn’t a good one. I didn’t really like her, she seemed so irresponsible and leaving in a dreamland. But with this story, you get a more details and understanding of her life and struggles and I really liked her in the end 🙂 So sorry for being judgmental. As for Mac he can cuff me anytime he wants LOL!
‘Man Cuffed’ can be read as a standalone. If you are looking for an entertaining, light, quirky and sweet romantic comedy, this book is definitely for you. I am looking forward to more books from the series.
Also, this book comes with a warning…
”Warning: may cause unrestrained giggling in public. Contains: a bridezilla with a turkey leg, a flash mob, and a growly hero. ”
…so if you are reading outside definitely take this into consideration 🙂
