**A standalone Romantic Comedy ** I was trying to live every woman's dream, except my reality has been nothing but a nightmare job and a divorce at the age of thirty-two. Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, my ex-husband, Rick, moved in next door with his life-size Barbie doll. So, that's been fun.

Then, life pitched me a curve-ball in the form of a retired

Man Flu is a hilarious, sweet, sexy romance that takes you on a journey of a divorced single mom reclaiming her life, self confidence and a new love, this story had me LOLing so hard I thought I was going to need to put some depends on.

I absolutely loved Hannah, she is not perfect, has self esteem issues, can’t stand her ex, Rick, or his new woman, she’s snarky and 100% dedicated to her precocious, hot mess of a 5 yr old daughter, Cora. By the way NOT only did Rick cheat on her, he moved next do

The title got me!!! (Cover model didn't hurt either...wink!) Never read any Shari J Ryan before. Now she's on my radar!!

What a refreshing and different kind of story. I don't have it in me to write a long winded review but suffice it to say the writing was good. And there so many laugh out loud moments! Talk about stretching out embarrassing moments!! OMG!!! This is a level 10 mortification book!!! So if you are in the mood for a good chuckle with hot hero and a mouthy heroine, and a precocious

“You see, when a man gets sick, it’s kind of like the world is coming to an end. They don’t handle it very well, at all.”

Hannah Pierce is just a woman trying to keep her life under control. Divorced at age 32, single mom to a feisty 5-year old, stuck in a job in an office full of sexist douches… oh yeah, and her ex-husband and his Barbie doll girlfri

Shari J Ryan has brought tears to my eyes again, but this time from laughter! This romantic comedy was hysterical and sexy at the same time! When I saw the title and the description I had to read it! This story is brilliant, the Man Flu is such a real thing, I enjoyed everything about Hannah’s and Logan’s story.
Hannah is such a likable character, all of us women and mothers can relate to her. She’s had some stuff happen in her life and instead of it bringing her down, she stood tall and didn’t

What a way to start a relationship........

I really enjoyed this book. This just proves that even in the fictional sense not all stories are fairy tales and white nights. Logan and Hannah's story isn't your typical single mom looking for some white night to swoop in and save the day. This book had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes and not because it was emotional. It was because this is what real life is like at times. The chaos, things not going as they should and yes men are the bigges

Man Flu, is legitimately one of my favorite phrases. It's a real thing, and most wives know all to well, what it entails. It's when a man ,simply thinks he is dying over a common cold, a fever, or something so small, and us women have to attend to them as if they are babies.

This is my first book by Shari. And I can absolutely guarantee you it will not be my last. This book has it all, it has EVERYTHING!! It entails the challenges we women have, after having kids and getting older. It shows the c

This a book for every mom out there...
Whether you are a single mom or not, Man Flu captures the worst of the worst and casts it in a humorous and hopeful light.

I liked Hannah and Logan and honestly had to laugh at a couple of the situations they found themselves in. I also appreciated the emotional growth we saw Hannah go through while she completed the process of saying good bye to her marriage and moving forward.

As much as I enjoyed this book, some of the quirks in Logan’s personali

"Meaning of Man flu is a phrase that refers to the idea that men, when they have a bad cold, exaggerate and claim they have the flu."

For example, "I have contracted a potentially fatal case of man-flu. Your lack of compassion is putting my life in danger!"

I just finished a book that put me in tears & depression so this was a definitely the book I needed. It put me in tears as well but with laughter this time. It has been a while that a book made me laugh this hard. My hubby even questioned
Gobbled this one up!! Def recommend! I laughed out loud so many times! My kids kept asking what was funny! Lol!

OMG! I loved Man Flu. This book is sweet, sexy and hilarious. I haven't read a book that had me laughing so much and the hot sexy tension between Logan and Hannah. I loved reading the journey of Logan and Hannah story and meeting other characters along the way.
I love reading Shari Ryan books. Never disappointed and her books always take me to a happy place.

Man Flu was such a great and fun read! I found Hannah to be a character that was so incredibly easy to relate to and I swear some of those scenes were straight from life. I laughed out loud so many times and Logan -- just swoon now! Logan is the most perfect beefcake and definitely creates for ovary explosions. This book has everything in it and I can't strongly encourage you enough to go out and one click this wonder!

Very funny! Although there was a lot of toilet humor which isn’t my fave. Poor Hannah just could t seem to catch a break. Logan was a good man despite what he’d been through but he was a little to sympathetic toward Hannah’s ex husband (who was the typical clueless, uninvolved man). This was my first book by this author but I’d like to check out some more. Safe read.

Hannah is having a hard time adjusting to being a single, working mom. Her ex-husband moved in next door to her with his much younger lover. While being pulled into a million directions, Hannah reaches her breaking point.

What I enjoyed about this story was the laugh out loud moments I had. The interaction between Hannah and her assistant Brielle are hilarious. Especially when the new guy shows up as the intern. Shari Ryan nailed it perfectly on what it is like when a man is sick.

Shari J. Ryan wrote one of the most emotional books I have ever read with A Heart of Time, but I also fell in love with her words. She is an amazing writer that can pull on your emotions and put you through an angst-filled ride. So, Man Flu was a quite the surprise. This one was filled with laugh out loud moments. Still an emotional read as we see Hannah’s journey, but lighter than previous books I have read by her.

In her early thirties, Hannah finds herself divorced, but even worse, her ex and

This story was great. It’s a rom com standalone and the first story I have read from Shari. I will definitely be reading more from Shari and catching up on the books I have not read of hers yet.

Hannah is a single mum, divorcée and living next door to her ex husband and his ‘barbie’ doll girlfriend. She is a funny, sarcastic character, she’s a bit of a perfectionist, but I quite liked her character. Everyone gets sick, and I thought it was quite accurate about how men act w

This was a super cute book that had me laughing throughout. My first read from this author, I really liked her sense of humor and enjoyed the journey of self discovery she took our heroine through in this book. Being a divorced single mom I could relate to much of the same experiences and struggles Hannah goes through. She kind of has to remember who she is and fall in love with herself again before falling in love with someone else (Logan) as well as clear up some unresolved feelings about her ...more

OMG!!! I absolutely floved this book!!!
Hannah is a single divorced mom. She is sarcastic and funny as he*l. She is also kind of a perfectionist.

Logan is a sexy as he*l former Major League Baseball player.( I don't wanna give much away about him)

So this book literally had me laughing so freaking hard I cried and my stomach still hurts from it!!!
But it was also sweet and it was a really good slow burn, which I love!

I, Amber Eckstein, will say without a doubt this is my favorite book so far in 2018! I cannot lie. I laughed through it, the story had a good plot to it. The characters were wonderful and everything came together. No doubt this author is amazing. This is my first by this author and won't be my last that is for sure.

Literally. that is my final reaction. It has taken me a while to have a chance to read this book and now that I have, I am over the moon. Logan is a dream. I have a strong respect for Hannah. Also, when a man decides to make his new daughter's bedroom a castle fairytale, I know I am forever ruined. I want me a Logan.
