    ➳A man with love and care towards kids, a single mother of two twins... what more can I ask for in this sexy, raw and passionate romance novel filled with laughter and joy... ➳My lack of rom-coms is always present since every time I read one, it has to just be PERFECT for me to properly enjoy it. Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby are two of the most unique authors I have read in such a long time, because no matter what type of romance they write, the laughter never stops pouring out of me. Now, for ➳A man with love and care towards kids, a single mother of two twins... what more can I ask for in this sexy, raw and passionate romance novel filled with laughter and joy... ➳My lack of rom-coms is always present since every time I read one, it has to just be PERFECT for me to properly enjoy it. Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby are two of the most unique authors I have read in such a long time, because no matter what type of romance they write, the laughter never stops pouring out of me. Now, for those who know me, they know that my love and kink for single father romances is immense and I accept from them from left to right no matter what. When it comes down to single mother romances, now those are new to me. Especially for those that the main female character is older than the main male character. I was uncertain about diving into this one because of that... ➳However, Liam McAllister is such a man who oozes that power of possessiveness and control when it comes down to being a proper man than being described as a fourteen year old Liam, with his fourteen year old fantasies about Sadie. To me, I found Liam and Sadie just the ideal couple when handling two-year old twins with two different personalities but filled with joy and happiness. That is all what Sadie, as a single mother truly wants. To bring happiness and peace towards her daughters. Not that she doesn't do it, but in her head she believes she fails as a mother. Thats when Liam comes into the equation, making her realize how utterly beautiful and extravagant Sadie truly is and how her power of being a single mother has made her into a strong woman, capable of absolutely anything the world can put her through. ➳Starting as sexual partners, to Liam wanting to become much more, Sadie and Liam learn that true love exists in this hysterical romance novel. Establishing a life together is the ideal path Liam wants, while Sadie does not want her little princesses to get confused upon the presence of Liam. Both twins love him to death, and adore spending time with him. So the question of compatibility for the girls with Liam is out the door for sure. And when it comes down to the chemistry and raw passion both Liam and Sadie have... there is no denying its presence. ➳Overall, my body is still tingling over this new compelling romance novel. No matter what, Sarina and Tanya have to continue writing together as a duo because their funny, witty, and adorable romance novels filled with so many sexy times are just meant to be read and not passed over. And if you have not read any of the books from this series, the previous novels, then that's totally fine as they are considered standalones. But just beware they can have some spoilers about the future of the previous characters. Thank you to Nina for sending over a copy of this beauty, I am so excited for everyone else to thoroughly enjoy this new rom-com! ➳ARC kindly provided by the publicist, in exchange for an honest review... ➳Follow Me On: Blog ♕ Instagram ♕ Facebook ♕ Twitter

    4 stars!!! Boy Toy was a rom com for sure, but it was so much more than that! Unlike the first two books in the series, this wasn’t quite as LOL slap stick funny, but more funny, sweet, and just more. By far my favorite of this series! Sadie is a single mom putting her twin girls in daycare for the first time after some bad luck with a string of nannies. It’s a hard decision for her, but it’s what's best. At the daycare, she sees a man who knocks her socks off. He happens to be Liam McAllister. 4 stars!!! Boy Toy was a rom com for sure, but it was so much more than that! Unlike the first two books in the series, this wasn’t quite as LOL slap stick funny, but more funny, sweet, and just more. By far my favorite of this series! Sadie is a single mom putting her twin girls in daycare for the first time after some bad luck with a string of nannies. It’s a hard decision for her, but it’s what's best. At the daycare, she sees a man who knocks her socks off. He happens to be Liam McAllister. Liam was 14 the summer that 19 year old Sadie baby sat him. He’s always had the biggest crush on her, and now at 29, he’s grown up well. And he still has it bad for Sadie. Sadie has endured a long dry spell since her disaster of a marriage. Liam is willing to be the boy toy she needs to break that spell. Little does she know at first, he wants so much more than that. Sadie is just in this for the sex. As far as she knows, so am I. But I’ve been in love with her since I was fourteen. How much did I love Liam? SO freaking much! I loved him with Sadie, I loved him with her girls, and I loved that he didn’t conform to what his family or society wanted him to be. He did what he loved and achieved the things he wanted for himself. He was literally the BEST hero! Sadie was great, too. She was a little slow to come around to what was going on, but I understood it. Boy Toy made me smile, laugh, and swoon. I loved this story! I only wish we got more of an epilogue. I felt like it ended a bit abruptly. I’m hoping there is another book in this series because I need to see what happens next with this couple!

You know, I think that’s the movie where the term MILF was invented. You know, a Mother I’d Like To Fuck.” There’s a massive scoop of New York Style cheesecake hovering just inches from my mouth when everything clicks into place. “Dammit!” The fork clatters to my plate. “What did you guys see?” They both collapse in hysterics. Seriously, they’re laughing so hard that Brynn might go into labor. I should’ve known when I entered the door and they were al oh, hiiiiiiii. And Brynn’s eyebrows were wagging. And Ash was all smirky. They must’ve seen Liam kissing me! They must’ve driven right past and I was so involved I didn’t even notice. “Just tell us if that runner boy is as good a kisser as I imagine him being.” And I get a little bit jealous all of a sudden when Ash says that. Like my inner goddess growls mine. “Please say there’s more where that kiss came from!” Brynn this time. “Please tell me there is boinking. I can’t boink right now. It’s just too much effort, but I’d love to live vicariously through you.” “No! There’s no...boinking.” I clear my throat, set the cheesecake down. “Or blowing. Or banging. Or anything. It was just a kiss.” Ash shakes her head. “I know what a just-a-kiss looks like, and that was not. That’s was just-a-foreplay. That dude wants you so bad.” “Liam,” I say, and I sort of sound all breathy and ridiculous. “Liammm,” they echo, mimicking me in the same voice. Fucking girlfriends. “So…” I should probably just tell them. They’re my best friends and they’ve always been my support system. They’ll tell me the truth and be real with me, and consider all the options. They won’t jump to conclusions and I know I can trust them. So why am I procrastinating? Why don’t I just blurt it out? “Liam wants to have a no strings attached sexual relationship with me to cure me of my sex drought and because apparently it will fulfill some inner fantasy he’s had of me since he was fourteen.” This is the part where my besties ponder the question with me. We’ll have an in-depth conversation discussing the pros and cons and the possible emotional complications, and… Ash says, “Do it.” Brynn says, “Yeah. Fuck him.” Ah. That was fast. “But aren’t I too…” “Short?” Brynn guesses. “Nah.” “Uptight?” Ash supplies. “Didn’t look like it a half hour ago.” “...Old,” I finish. “He makes me feel like a cougar.” “You can’t be a cougar until at least forty,” Ash says. “It’s a rule. So you have five years left. But in five years he’ll be thirty-four, and the differential between your ages will be inside of twenty percent. So you will have aged out of cougardom.” “You’ll be fully amortized,” Brynn adds. We both give her weird looks. “Do you know what amortized means?” Ash asks. “No, but it sounds like the Latin word for love,” she shrugs. “Let’s eat cheesecake and watch a kissing movie.” And that is why the three of us have never successfully completed a serious conversation. We have, on the other hand, successfully completed many a cheesecake.

Why you ask, it features the two previous couples, and second we get Liam & Sadie. Definitely a favorite book of 2018 We’ve gotten a lot of Sadie’s story over the last two novels and I couldn’t wait to get her happily ever after. Hands down so happy she found Liam McAllister. The only thing I would change in this story was socking it to Dexter, plain and simple 😜 The instant chemistry between these characters is sizzling These two knew each other from growing up. Sadie babysat Liam’s siblings one Summer and that is when Liam started his deep crush for Sadie. So years later when they meet up again, Liam knows he’s in trouble again when not only is he still crushing but he has never wanted a woman the way he needs and wants Sadie. And she’s a mom to boot. The dedication, the loyalty, Liam’s kindness, love, and his passion melt my heart. He will do anything for Sadie or her twin girls. He would walk over burning coals to get to her or them. We read a lot of dedicated and loving men, but dang Liam, he’s up there at the top. We can all dream of having a man like him😍 Sadie is amazing in this story. She knows what she wants, she just has to have to push to finally go get it. Their age difference of 5 years is nothing to me. In today’s world, 5 years is like 5 months. No hurdle to get over =))) I loved getting the previous characters in this wonderful group. So if you have read this series, you know hands down you laugh a lot. All I can say is Sarina Bowen, you had me laughing out loud so much in this book😘😘 A total recommend from me. And if you have not read the previous books in this series, you need too. Fun, sweet, and loads of lovable. I'm loving this author’s reads so much😘😘

BOY TOY, the third installment of the ”Man Hands” series was filled with numerous laugh out loud moments, steam, and even some heart-aching angst. The pace of the story flowed smoothly, so much that never once did I feel that I wasn’t completely entertained. I was fully engaged with the plot and loved most of the characters. I love a romance between an older woman and a younger man. The age difference isn’t really that huge. Sadie is six years older than Liam. What makes them seem worlds apart is the fact that Sadie used to babysit Liam and his younger siblings when he was fourteen, and she’s also a single mother to precocious twin daughters. But we learn quickly that Liam is more than just a pretty face with a hot body. This guy is every woman’s dream come true. I honestly felt that he was the star of this story. We are given both Sadie and Liam’s POVs through alternating chapters. Liam was such an amazing character and I was rooting for him to finally get the woman of his dreams the entire time, and I loved his relationship with little Kate and Amy. While Sadie was a frustrating character at times, I understood her hesitance to take a chance with her heart again.

    ***IT'S ALIVE!!!*** Age really doesn't matter... I absolutely LOVED THIS STORY!!! It was so relatable and made me feel so connected to the characters. I blubbered like a baby at one stage. Any reader who has had kids and feels a smidge of self-consciousness from their post-baby bodies will get it. Poor hubby walked in as I was wiping the tears from my eyes.

I absolutely LOVED THIS STORY!!! It was so relatable and made me feel so connected to the characters. I blubbered like a baby at one stage. Any reader who has had kids and feels a smidge of self-consciousness from their post-baby bodies will get it. Poor hubby walked in as I was wiping the tears from my eyes. He then faced the *Do you still love me?* emotional and hormonal interrogation. I got the eye-rolling, she’s reading another emotional book, my life is tough, face. As you may have guessed, we’ve been here before…a time or two. Poor Sadie, she’s a battered and bruised (emotionally not physically) woman who works full-time, feels guilty about it and hates that her kids must go to childcare. She’s also feeling undesirable, worn out and a wee bit sexually frustrated. Her ex-husband was and still is an absolute DOUCHEWAFFLE of epic proportions. Every time he made an entrance (or lack of), I wanted to kick him where the sun doesn't shine. At Sadie’s most vulnerable time, the most gorgeous man comes into her life and nothing will ever be the same again. Oh my lordy, I LOVED Liam!! I just sat here for two minutes trying to think of a way that he wasn’t perfect and I honestly can’t. Luckily, we get a little glimpse of what he’s thinking and geez he’s so cute and sweet. The facts are the facts – 1. He’s Hot!! 2. He’s great with kids!! 3. He’s smart!! 4. He’s sexy!! 5. He’s thoughtful, sweet, considerate, caring and loving… I really could go on and on…SEE PERFECT!! Poor Liam has a few obstacles he must navigate to get to his HEA. For starters, he’s younger than Sadie. Now, back in the olden days (5 maybe 10 years ago), I had “issues” with the guy being younger. It’s like a few authors got together to prove my “issues” are stupid. More times than not, I’ve felt like a twit for ever having those “issues”. If it’s the right couple, at the right time, in the right place, it doesn’t matter what your bloody age is. Liam also has to beat Sadie’s past. He’s got to prove his love and devotion and convince her that he’s in for the long haul. I think anyone facing a relationship after a divorce has these concerns and Liam is thankfully aware of her doubts and makes allowances for it. Seriously, this was another fantastic instalment to the Man Hands series. The characters were funny, a little crazy but refreshingly real. The sexy times were SEXY!! The storyline kept my attention from start to finish and I was left extremely satisfied. I really hope Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby will continue their writing together in the future.

Here's the thing, I have never been a huge fan of the older woman younger man thing in books but it didn't bother me at all in this. I was 100% cheering for Sadie to get her 'boy toy' after the dickhead she had been married to. This was a cute, fun and drama free read, I absolutely love this series! I did find this one had less LOL moments than the first two books but it still had some and they were mostly due to the twins. They are super cute and Kate with her sensory issues and helmet wearing had me giggling. I thought the romance was much stronger in this one and the connection between Liam and Sadie was electric. Liam is awesome, I mean any mum can understand the attraction. A young very fit, single sex on legs man that LOVES kids and is fantastic with them and is also manly it's enough to make a woman's.................... I will keep my fingers crossed for another book in the Man Hands series but I'll read anything these ladies write.

Amazon US * Amazon UK 3.5 Stars Full disclosure, I requested this book before there was a blurb because I've enjoyed the previous books in the series so much. So when I actually got the book and realized it was an older-woman-younger-man type of story I became really nervous about it since it's not a trope I'm too crazy about. But now that I've read it I'm actually glad that I didn't know the trope or else I might have missed out on reading a great book. Liam and Sadie were off the charts hot together and I loved the chemistry they had between them. What was even hotter though was how amazing Liam was with Sadie's twin girls. He really jumped right in to her life with no worry about the fact that she had two young kids to worry about. I thought it was great how he never stopped and worried about getting in a relationship with Sadie because of the girls and it made his character the best one yet from this series. Even though I enjoyed these characters I did still have a little issue with the age difference thing and that's where my 3.5 Stars rating comes in. The main reason this trope isn't my favorite is because whenever I read it it seems like the age different is repeatedly mentioned again and again and always made to be such an issue. And that's what happened in this book. Even when Sadie stopped worrying about how young Liam was and it wasn't an actual issue anymore, it seemed like the authors were still trying to point out that there was a difference in their ages by always brining up the fact that Liam was fourteen when he first met and had a crush on Sadie. After the first twenty times of Liam as a fourteen year old being mentioned it just got a little to much. Overall, I did enjoy this book and event hough it's not my favorite trope out there in romance-land this was certainly a book I can't regret reading. The characters were fantastic and the story was hot and so very sweet with those adorable twins. Definitely a book I would recommend giving a try.

Sadie is final member of this little sisterhood to find her HEA and the one I identified the most with. She's kind of a hippie chick, loves pillows and works in the mental health field. She's getting her life back together after her butt lick of a husband left her shortly after she gave birth to their twin daughters. Decker is a butt lick. Trust me. She's reluctantly trying to get her groove back when she runs into a blast from the past: Liam. She was hired to babysit Liam's younger siblings and left an impression on 14 yr old Liam. I know this because 14 yr old Liam has a tendency to interject thoughts into 29 yr old Liam's psyche to hilarious effect. Liam is all grown up now and makes Sadie a wee bit drooly with his six pack abs and penchant for running shirtless. To add to the ovary explodingness, he's working towards his Ph.D. in childhood development at the girls' daycare. He's really great with the girls and they adore him. There were so many moments where my heart gave a squeeze: when Amy calls him Wiam, when he gave Kate the golden Band-Aid. So adorable! True, he used his chocolate chip smiley face pancake magic too woo them but he then proceeded to prove himself worthy of their adoration time and time again. Not only that but any guy who will hold your hair while you praise the porcelain god is deserving of a little adoration, in my opinion. So, yeah, I liked Liam. More importantly, I loved Liam and Sadie together. There's something about this known-each-other-for-years/unrequited to requited trope that always appeals to me and Boy Toy is another to add to the collection. I can see it becoming a comfort read. Both Sadie and Liam came across as genuine. Both had depth with the addition of a little water under the bridge that fleshed them out. Both do a pretty good job of communicating their needs excepting the very brief hiccup that was needed for Sadie to gain clarity. The level of attraction that exists between them was palpable but maybe more important than anything else, they have fun together. They fit together regardless of the 6 yr age difference between them. They make time for each other and trust one another making their future a foregone conclusion to my mind. There is a teeny tiny sliver of hurt/comfort as Sadie's ex did a number on her self-image but in the face of Liam's overwhelming desire that negative self-image doesn't stand a chance. If bossy in the bedroom appeals to you, you'll enjoy the sexy times. There are a plethora of comedic moments but Kate and Amy stole the show. I was laughing so hard at Kate at the big fancy party that I had to put my kindle down. Because I couldn't see it! The kid is a firecracker and her antics are side-splitting. I sure do hope these two authors continue to work together because they have some mojo that creates comedy gold. This and Man Hands are the funniest books I've read this year, so I hope the hits keep coming. Maybe a spinoff involving Sadie and Liam's siblings? Or a follow up to this one? Recommend this book and this series to fans of the rom-com and anyone who likes a sweet romance that's a little bit spicy and a whole lot funny. Boy Toy can be read as a stand alone.

Now, the story itself took me almost a month to get through, which is saying something. It isn't bad, not at all, but the start of the book felt a bit dull and a bit tropey. I also got really tired of hearing about Liam's "inner fourteen year-old." Yeah, we get it, he used to have a crush on Sadie, stay in the NOW, dude. However, just when I was ready to write this story off as just meh, the last 25% rolled around. Though there was still some unnecessary drama, the ending was so stinking cute that I felt that the story totally redeemed itself. Plus, I have to give a bonus star just for that killer narration.

Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby created a couple which made me disappear from my everyday life and slip into Liam's and Sadie's.... We had the idea of older woman younger man...yet even though there were about six years difference??? I think that really wasn't the true concern. It was part of the book but for the most part it was the idea of a woman's self esteem being torn down by her ex husband after she gave him twins. As woman we are so caught up in body image and how we think those who love us see us (meaning [email protected]@hole EX). It is so easy to lose who we are if we constantly are putdown, made to feel less then and then experiencing ex claiming it is your fault he cheated! This is what Sadie Maxwell has been experiencing. She is now officially a single mother of two year old twins and about to deal with having them start daycare. She is a capable mom, having every single need packed and available should a situation happen. Her girls are amazing and completely different. She has managed them from the start, with an ex who never helped at all. Sadie is strong, fun and has her girl crew. They have supported her just like she had them over the years. She is now the odd one out as both have found their guys...They have held her hand while she has adjusted and now want her to get out there and experience Life with a Capital L. As Sadie finishes walking her girls into the daycare center, a man starts walking to her with a full smile on his face...His eyes are sparkling and when he opens his mouth to say hello... She is stunned....here in front of her, all tall and hunky in the way which just works so well, is this was the fourteen year old boy, who with his 8 year old sister, Sadie babysat when she was nineteen. Who da knew he would turn out so fine...WOW Liam McAllister cannot believe his first love... and really maybe his only love is walking into the daycare he is working to research his program for child development. There, plain as day, is Sadie Maxwell, his first crush and person he has always held close to his heart. Years ago she came to babysit mainly, his sister and him. He was fourteen at the time and what was so cool about Sadie was that she never made him feel like she was there for him in that way. Instead it was kinda like he was helping her with his sister...and then after him helping her, they would watch horror movies late into the night. Sadie would talk passionately about classic film, plot points, all sorts of things. He fell hard and it never left him. Now as a twenty-nine year old man, Liam has lived. He has found his personal calling, raising children to be as well rounded as possible. He knows from experience what it felt like to be raised by nannies and others. He has experienced women and made sure they all were respected and taken care of first...and he has maintained his body to serve him well by running miles and miles. In other words, he is the full package...yup, drool-worthy....and this is the man presenting himself to Sadie. She is now thirty-five and feels like anything that could happen between the two of them would fall into Cougar territory. So, this is the set up and the authors run with it. But as I said, there was so much more to this story that grabbed my heart and mind. Liam is a joy... Period. He is everything a woman would want no matter the age or any other situation. He was so smart and understanding to all of the things Sadie was dealing with...and he had his own stuff he needed to handle. Yet no matter the hiccup, Liam was there for Sadie and her daughters.. Sadie was likable and worked to open her mind and heart. The chemistry between these two was off the charts and we relished in it. Liam's relationship with the twins was so strong, it squeezed my heart. All of the secondary plot points and characters worked. The ex was the perfect sh#t and her girl crew was as solid as solid could be. The only thing I which gave me pause was the deal five/six years difference between Sadie and Liam could make her think she was a Cougar... If the tables had been turned, it would never have been an issue. It only highlights the craziness of age with woman and not men. As you can tell, I truly loved this book.

    I loved everything about this book! It was sweet, hot and LOL funny #hiddenvalley. There’s nothing sexier than a man who loves kids, which pretty much makes Liam the sexiest book boyfriend around.

When Sadie finally let her walls down to let Liam in, the pages exploded with so much heart and so much heat! I loved every minute of this delightful, hilarious, and entertaining love story. It was fast-paced, easy to read, and I was smiling the whole way through. Sarina and Tanya have proven over and over again what a great team they make and I hope they never stop writing together. In my circle, I don’t come across a lot of older woman/younger man romances, which is too bad, because after devouring Boy Toy, I kinda crave more of that certain dynamic. Boy Toy is the third book in the ‘Man Hands’ series but it can be read as a complete standalone. It doesn’t matter what order you read these in, but one thing is for certain…you MUST read them all at some point because they are all AMAZING!

After having nothing but trouble using nannies she decides to put the girls into day care.

Here's the thing, I have never been a huge fan of the older woman younger man thing in books but it didn't bother me at all in this. I was 100% cheering for Sadie to get her 'boy toy' after the dickhead she had been married to. This was a cute, fun and drama free read, I absolutely love this series! I did find this one had less LOL moments than the first two books but it still had some and they were mostly due to the twins. They are super cute and Kate with her sensory issues and helmet wearing had me giggling. I thought the romance was much stronger in this one and the connection between Liam and Sadie was electric. Liam is awesome, I mean any mum can understand the attraction. A young very fit, single sex on legs man that LOVES kids and is fantastic with them and is also manly it's enough to make a woman's.................... I will keep my fingers crossed for another book in the Man Hands series but I'll read anything these ladies write. - Alicia, 4.5 Stars *** Fab role reversal rom-com…. This series has had me laughing and turning the fan on high since the turn of the first page of Man Hands. A trio of friends finding their ‘one’ in very different, but equally entertaining and humor-filled ways meant a trilogy of feel good reads that has ended with Boy Toy. I eagerly awaited Sadie’s story and it was as unconventional as it was heart-warming…. Not only was this a younger man/older woman trope, a second chance (though some may argue this) but also a change-up of the traditional man-woman roles as well. If you weren’t a fan of any of these storylines, don’t worry, you will soon become a convert. Liam and Sadie are just that good… Liam was sexy, great with kids and still suffering the worst (or best) girl crush he’s had since he was fourteen. Hearing his inner voice wrestle with his then teenage self and the very grown up man he has become was hilarious as well as touching. His pursuit of Sadie was not just a blast from the past but a here and now falling in love over again. Sadie had her doubts and many, many misgivings but under Liam’s relentless, and irresistible charm, she tried to resist. Oh she tried… Funny, with many pings to the heart, this is a love story that faced every challenge head on with grace and humour. Save this book for a day when you need a massive pick me up – it will do the job nicely! ~Diane, 4.5 stars

    Nothing is sweeter than a single parent romance – unless you up the ante by making the single parent a mom of twin toddlers.

You’d better brace yourself for cuteness overload in Boy Toy, the third standalone rom-com in the wildly entertaining Man Hands series. Sadie is raising her two-year-old twin girls alone with virtually no help from her loser ex-husband. Like many women, she’s trying to balance motherhood with a career and is left feeling frazzled, guilty, and unattractive. She used to babysit Liam when he was a teenager and Sadie was in college. He’s a man now, and what a fine specimen he has grown up to be! He looks after the twins at the new daycare facility the girls attend. Liam and Sadie’s surprise reunion reignites the huge torch he has carried for her all these years. I liked that their age difference is addressed, but is not an issue that is beaten to death. Sadie is, however, self-conscious about her post-babies body, and it is difficult for her to believe that a hot younger man would be interested in her. The process of her getting her groove back is both sweet and funny. Holy Mother of Ovaries! Liam can change a diaper, weight lift a toddler on each arm, diffuse temper tantrums, clean laundry on his washboard abs, cook a delicious meal, and make sweet, sweet love. At the same time. Basically he’s a panty dropping manny superhero. Seriously though, his intellect, sensitivity, and love for young children make him impossible to resist. If you’re looking for a charming romance that will make you swoon and laugh, you should definitely check out Boy Toy. Recommended for fans of: Single mom romance Older women-younger men romances Hot mannies Romantic comedy *I received an early copy of this book.*

The 35 yr old therapist divorcee h was sympathetic. Her 2 yr old twins were also adorbs. Loved it! P.S. I am going to steal “He wants to put ranch dressing on your Hidden Valley” from now on. Because I'm twelve. P.P.S. I didnt read the two previous bks and it was a-okay. I will get to them eventually.

I love a good story about a divorcee finding love again and even better if it is with the nanny :) IN this case, the nanny is even younger than the heroine, so I was all for it. Sadie is an overworked mother of twins and her ex is basically trash. Liam is working at the child care center that Sadie's girls go to. Sadie used to be Liam's babysitter and he always had a crush on her. Liam is the sweetest, loving, caregiver and I loved it. The story itself is pretty solid, some silliness but the plot was more substantial than the previous two. I would have liked to have seen Sadie's ex a bit more developed, particularly the big conflict. There was a lot of lead up, then it's just over. However, I muse absolutely include the following the following gripes I had with it. There were a few fat jokes that I was not fond of. I gave Man Hands a D because I thought it relied on fat jokes at the heroine's expense. There was one description toward the end that I was not fond of. "Barb is big and bold and bright, and she’s spotted us. It’s fair to say she’s bearing down on us. Tonight she’s wearing pink, orange, and yellow with beige pants. She looks like a walking scoop of sherbet. She’s twice the size of Brad. When he stands behind her, which is frequently, he actually disappears." But my bigger gripe is about Sadie's ethnicity. In the first book, Man Hands Sadie is described as being black with brown skin and curly brown hair. It is very clearly defined. In the ARC is received of Boy Toy, there is zero mention of it. In fact, Sadie is described as having vampire skin and also having "honeyed toned" skin. I did reach out to the authors via their publicist and they indicated it was an oversight that would be corrected in later versions. But this is me basically saying this is not okay. As a reader, I pay attention to these things. If in book one a POC character is introduced and then when they get their own book, they are no longer a person of color, this is not good. It may be an oversight, but it feels much grosser than that. Authors, please do better.

I wouldn’t call this book overly romantic, but it was cute and adorable. It was an easy read and I read it in one sitting. I liked Liam, I thought a hunky boy toy was a cute story and he’s more than a six pack of abs, he truly cares for kids and oh my goodness isn’t that hot? Overall, a fun and quick read.

Liam fell in love with Sadie when she spent the summer babysitting him and his siblings. Fifteen years later when she walks into the daycare center where he works, all those feelings and thoughts fourteen-year-old Liam had, come to life. ❝I have a confession to make,❞ Sadie says. Fourteen-year-old Liam immediately reacts. Please say you want to touch my boner! Pleeeeeeease! Sadie is a newly divorced, single mother of two adorable twin girls. She's not only gorgeous, she's smart and crazy funny. Sadie has to let go of her fears, the guilt associated with her divorce, and the "I shoulds" and "should nots" in order to find happiness. She's convinced dating a younger man is a recipe for heartbreak. And if she had a relationship with Liam, it wouldn't be long before he would find someone younger, sexier and prettier than she. ❝No, No no no no! Thou shalt not perve on the younger man! Shut up, hormones! Oh, hell. I'm a cougar.❞ Liam is such a contrast to the man Sadie divorced. He is loving and kind, tender and smart. He cares about her and her girls. And he's good! Good to her and good to them. It is his goodness that frightens Sadie. She can see a life with him, but in a few months, Liam is leaving to continue his doctoral studies, possibly in a foreign country. And then, what? Where will that leave Sadie and her girls? It's easier to keep him as her side piece than to risk her heart again. Sadie's sister, Megan is AWESOME! I want my own Megan! She's her sisters biggest cheerleader and always willing to help out with her girls ... **taps the screen** Hey, Bowen and Eby ... Megan is getting her own book, right? RIGHT? ❝Saddle up, cowgirl. Do It. And yes---it's a legit thing that some men love cougars. And that's what you are, right? The horny divorcee out for the prowl for the young stud, ready to educate him and...❞ Tears. I cried tears! Not just from the hilarious moments, but from the touching ones, too! My heart broke for Liam, he is so good and he deserves good! It was hard because I understood Sadie's fears, and "mom guilt", and wanting to do right by everyone, all the while putting her needs, and happiness aside. In this stand-alone story about first loves, second chances, and self-realization, Bowen and Eby bring us a heart-warming, funny story about a man with a 15-year-old crush and a woman who believes she's too old to be loved. I was provided a review copy by the author. This did not influence my opinion of the book nor my review.

This book, while being the third in the Man Hands series, is a complete standalone. I haven't read the other books in the series quite yet (I will soon though) and didn't have any problems with characters or plot because this is a standalone couple.

There is a bit of an age gap between Liam and Sadie, I think it's only 5 years though, and Sadie used to babysit Liam and his siblings when they were kids. Fast forward 15 years later and the two come face to face again! Sadie, divorced mother of twin girls, has finally decided to send her children to daycare because the nanny's just aren't working out. Her daughter Kate is a rambunctious 2 year old, and her sister a bit on the shy side. The nannys have either run out screaming (who knew a two year old can tackle so had) or have previously slept with her husband (reasons for divorce). So daycare seems like the only plausible option. But the innocence of just fining the right daycare and the right kind of person to handle her girls turns out to be unexpectedly... Sexy. Because the man who will be watching her daughters 9 hours out the day turns out to be the hunky kid she used to babysit herself. Readers, this is a wonderful and fun book to read and I highly recommend it to you! I devoured this one in a couple of blissful hours by the pool and I know readers everywhere are going to do the same! If you haven't gotten your hands on this one yet, make sure to preorder! It's a great read.

He’s grown up in the most delightful way. And yes, romance happens. I’m going to make this quick (ha! so, you know, a normal length review like everyone else), since I’ll be reviewing it for the blog, but general thoughts? The Good -Liam is the hottie babysitter hero we ALL need. He is my favorite kind of hero - beta on the streets, alpha in the sheets. -The Firsts are executed very well. Always key and Ms. Bowen and Eby did it RIGHT. -The humor fits the story beautifully, and is organic, instead of the story based on just the funny bits, which is my favorite kind of humor. The Bad -The villains of the piece are pretty meh. They serve their purpose, but don’t really add to the story. -The physical descriptions are pretty vague and fluctuate. From hair texture to skin tone, I’m not exactly sure what Sadie looks like and I have a general idea of Liam. If it weren’t for a description of Sadie in the first book in the series, I wouldn’t know (think? At this point) she is supposed to be a woman of color. Their age gap seems to be five years at one point, then six. It was confusing and pulled me out of the moment at times. Everything in Between -Friendships are still fun and the overall vibe is quick and easy and fun, which was just what I needed. It is definitely not necessary to read the earlier books in the series to follow things here. With minor quibbles, I really enjoyed this and I think it’s the best book of the series. If you’re in the mood for the older woman/younger man trope with a side of hot babysitter, I think you’d enjoy this. **ARC provided by author via PR for review** For more reviews, visit

The first day she brought the girls to daycare she did expect to meet their teacher, a handsome attractive young man. Right off the bat, Sadie has butterflies from a short conversation with Liam. Come to find out, Sadie used to babysit Liam when he was 14 years old. But hold up! Liam had a huge crush on his young babysitter that summer. Liam had a blast and he never thought he would see her again. Now Sadie is back, beautiful, matured and gorgeous as ever. Liam is all grown up too. He realizes this union is not a coincidence but faith. Liam is determined to win back his childhood crush. He will not let her walk away the second time without letting Sadie know exactly how he feels. Look! This story is really cute filled with hilarious banters. The chemistry is awesome regardless of their age difference (not much though). It was tasteful, sexy and romantic. The girls are adorable and Liam is so amazing with them – totally swoony hero. Can’t find any fault in Liam – smart, sexy, loving, protective, and just everything you want in a hero. I love Sadie too – she is a devoted mom, works hard, caring, and so deserves a break. Overall, Boy Toy is a fantastic read!

I think that it keeps the energy level up and the plot moving. I loved the humor. There are some serious times too. Sadie's EX-husband Decker is a tool. What a freakin' cliche. BUT so accurate. He cheats on Sadie when their twin girls are barely two. With the nanny! There's no coming back from that. BUT stay tuned. Decker keeps on screwing up - alwa I absolutely loved this book.

With the nanny! There's no coming back from that. BUT stay tuned. Decker keeps on screwing up - always at the expense of his little girls. Liam works at the daycare center where Sadie takes Amy and Kate. He's a natural with the kids. He has more going for him that is revealed early on in the story. Sadie notices how great he is with kids, but she also realizes that she knew Liam when he was a 14 y/o boy. She dwells on this for a while. It doesn't seem to bother Liam at all. He's (still) n love with Sadie-since he was 14 y/o. It's 15 years later, but she made such an impression on him. Sadie's a wonderful mom. She has her hands full. Her twins Amy- pacifier sucking, piggypoo clutching little cutie. Kate. Is going to rule the world. Sadie keeps a helmet on Kate when they go out in public. Smart move. Just wait for Kate's shinning moment! I was reading it in a nail salon & laughed so loud, they could hear me over the nail buffer noise. Great supporting characters, especially Sadie's friend Brynn & Ash (from books 1 & 2). I had a little trouble remembering Sadie and Liam's siblings. This really was a page turner. When I love a book I try to slow it down. I couldn't help myself. I enjoy Ms Bowen's more serious books-I really enjoy her True North series. I've read all of those to date. I loved the chemistry between Liam and Sadie. There is instant spark, but they've known each other for years I don't know which author wrote which part, but it was so seamless, that it doesn't really matter. The ending was really sweet and funny. The best part though is the the journey that these two go through. The epilogue is still in present day. I don't think that the age gap should be that big of a deal. I know of 2 real life couples where each wife is 10+years older than the husband. And both were married more than 30 years. Thanks for the reco Chele! I've noticed a lot of great reviews and I can see why.

I just…I mean…I can’t even describe that level of adorableness. My heart never even stood a chance. It belongs to Liam now, and I am 100% okay with that. Having been with this series from the beginning, this book felt like a reward. I loved getting to see all the happy couples together in all their zany, ridiculous glory. The friendships going on here are every bit as rewarding as the romance – and that’s saying a lot. There were just…a whole lot of smiles for me while reading this and that’s basically the highest praise I can award. I swear this writing duo just keeps getting better, and I sincerely hope that we’ll get more from them in the future. Boy Toy was an absolutely perfect balance of laugh-out-loud funny and heartfelt emotion. It was smartly written, charming and sexy as all get-out. It’s the whole package and I loved every single minute of it. ~ Shelly, 5 Stars ***** Ladies and Gentlemen, Sarina Bowen and Tanta Eby are romcom gold. I thoroughly enjoyed this story as both Liam and Sadie were so deliciously sexy as they were adorable. I loved the premise of the story and the swoony connection between our hero and heroine. I thought Boy Toy was a great addition to this series and could not get enough of these two. Brynn and Ash were great but there was something about Sadie's relateabilty that I loved. A woman in her thirties who is struggling to get her mojo back with a divorce under her belt and a mom of twin toddlers. But when twenty-nine year old Liam Mcallister, a blast from her past, takes one look at Sadie and recognizes her as his babysitter from fifteen years ago, he makes it his mission to show her alll the ways he's come from being a teenager. Gah! This was fantastic. Liam was sweet and sexy and hit all the right buttons. I just loved his devotion to Sadie and her girls as it hit me right in the mom feels to see this kind and nurturing man devote himself to babies. Gahh!! All in all this was great and I look forward to more! 4 stars! ~Ratula

    I absolutely LOVED this hilarious romcom! I'm *still* swooning for Liam! Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby had me laughing out loud so much that I swear I had to stop, wipe the tears from my eyes, and catch my breath a few times! Boy Toy is the 3rd book in the interconnected stand alone Man Hands series, but you don't have to read any of the other books to enjoy this one (though I HIGHLY recommend that you do since they're equally hilarious!) Liam. Sigh. Seriously, he was adorkably amazing. I loved him I absolutely LOVED this hilarious romcom! I'm *still* swooning for Liam!

Liam. Sigh. Seriously, he was adorkably amazing. I loved him right from the start and his inner monologue (especially 14 year old Liam) was THE BEST! He was everything you hope a book boyfriend will be and then some. Not only was he kind, loving, intelligent, protective, loyal, and sexy, but he was also amazing with children and could cook! The authors weren't lying when they said readers would be calling dibs on this hero! I've loved Sadie since I met her in Man Hands and couldn't wait to read this book. Her story has been the most realistic of the three, and I found her fears and concerns regarding starting a relationship with Liam to be honest and valid. There was a certain element of taboo since she used to babysit for Liam's family, but it was easily overlooked since the age gap wasn't too big (6 years) and Liam's maturity (unless he was channeling 14 year old Liam) made him seem a lot older. Kate and Amy also added some great comic relief and I really enjoyed Kate's linebacker skills. LOL If you're looking for a fun, low on drama, snort because it's so damn funny rom com, you do not want to miss Boy Toy! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*
