I recently discovered Sarina Bowen’s books and have loved what I have read so far. I have seen people mention the Man Hands series, but it was something I haven’t read yet. There was a sign up to read and review the newest book in the series, Boy Toy. Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby wrote this book together. It is now available and really good!
A brand new romantic comedy from your favorite snort-laughing duo!
The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was fourteen, and I’m still not over her. Problem: she still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last fifteen years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.
I’ve just survived the worst year of my life. As a single mom of twin toddlers, I don’t have time for a man. I barely have time to finish a thought. Who knew that Liam McAllister would grow up to be so devastating? He’s everything my husband was not: tall, built, and willing to have a tea party with my girls.
I can’t possibly get involved with him. He’s too young for me. Too handsome. But he’s so persuasive…
The cover of Boy Toy is like a lot of romances, but I love the colors. I have to say the rubber ducky made me curious, haha.
Sadie hasn’t had an eay year. After getting divorced, she was a single mom of twin toddlers. Add her career on top of that and she was just barely surviving. There is no way she has time for a guy. That is until she runs into Liam at the daycare. Liam grew up to be rather amazing. He’s changed a lot since Sadie used to babysit his siblings.
It’s clear there is an attraction from the start and I love how awkward the situation gets. Sadie can’t stop staring and 14-year old Liam keeps popping in his mind. See, Liam has always been attracted to Sadie. He just never thought he may actually have a chance with her.
Let’s just say besides the funny, sexy moments I really loved the career choices both of these characters had. Sadie is a counselor and Liam is studying childhood development (even if his father doesn’t approve). These fields are close to my own, so I love reading about characters who did a similar thing.
Sadie’s ex doesn’t sound like a nice guy and I think it really messed with her. Her two little girls were worth it though. I loved how much of a part they played in this book. In a lot of romances, the kids are mentioned and that’s it. In Boy Toy they play a part in their everday life. The twins are so cute and I love that Kate tackled everything. Even if the timing wasn’t great.
Liam knows he needs to take it slow with Sadie. Not only does she thinks she’s too old for him, it’s clear she’s still hurting and getting over her marriage. Liam is everything we need in a book boyfriend. Reading his description he’s definitely good looking, haha. Liam is great with kids (that is always a plus for me). A guy holding a baby is definitely someting that is swoon-worthy. Liam is romantic and all he really wants is Sadie to be happy.
There are some bumps along the way in this story, but it’s not as angsty as a lot of romance books are. Boy Toy had me laughing out loud, smiling and swooning. I was really sad when I read the last page. I want to read more about these characters.
I definitely need to get my hands on the first two books in this series. I hope we get many more. Have you ever read books in this series? What did you think?
