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 fi

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 McAlliste

“What are you guys in the mood for?” I ask, bringing up the Netflix icon on my screen.
“Hmmm…” Ash says. “I dunno. How about something sexy? Like, The Graduate!”
That’s a little weird. Usually Ash asks for some kind of action flick involving explosions or car chases or both.
“Nah,” Brynn says. “I’m much more in the mood for American Pie. You know, I think that’s the movie where the term MILF was invented. You know, a Mother I’d Like To Fuck.”

I absolutely love this author. She can totally get me with every book she writes, every trope, every character. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this series so I knew I couldn’t wait to get to this one. And it definitely wasn’t a disappointment, at all. Out of the three books so far in this series, this may be my favorite. Why you ask, it features the two previous couples, and second we get Liam & Sadie. Definitely a favorite book of 2018

I kiss her once before heading back out to the deck. She tastes like crisp wine and a hint of spice. She tastes like everything I ever wanted.

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

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 boo

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 has been in love with his babysitter Sadie Matthews since he was 14 and she was 20 years old.
15 years later Liam gets the perfect opportunity to seduce her.

Then his tongue teases the seam of my lips. When I open for him, he tastes of cold beer and youth and the kind of fun I haven’t had in a long time. Each kiss is a little deeper. And each one ends as another begins. Strong arms pull me closer to his body, and my brain clicks right off. Instead of thoughts, I hear static, like a dysfunctio

Boy Toy is rom com at its finest.

I barely even made it to 20% and I had already cackled, chortled and chuckled.

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.

When I saw that Teddy Hamilton was one of the narrators for Boy Toy I one-clicked that audiobook soooo fast. If your ears haven't had the pleasure of listening to Teddy yet, you need to make that happen. He is a serious wonder, and I wish more authors used him. While on the subject of narrators, I was worried that Tanya Eby wouldn't hold her own, but I was pretty surprised by how great she was, especially with her male voices. Bravo to her.

Now, the story itself took me almost a month

Being a single parent to twins is no easy feat. When Sadie is forced to enrol her girls into Daycare, their carer is none other then the fourteen year old boy she once babysat for. Except the sweet boy has been replaced by a drool worthy man with the Midas touch.

Liam can't believe he is seeing Sadie after all these years. Not only does he have fond memories of her, she was his first ever crush. Realising that she's divorced makes her fair game. Well here's to hoping....

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.

Boy Toy is everything you want in a romantic comedy. First, you have a great storyline. Second, you have amazing characters. Third, it is hot. HOT. And four, it couldn’t be funnier. Boy Toy is the real deal. It doesn’t get any better than this. Seriously.

First of all, Boy Toy can be read as a standalone. You don’t need to have read either of the previous two books to enjoy it. Having said that, I totally recommend reading the other books in the Man Hands series because they are freaking awesome.

Boy Toy by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby is a laugh out loud romantic comedy that will have you blushing, swooning, and giggling in no time! Liam and Sadie were PERFECT together! I loved their flirtatious dynamic. I loved how Liam wouldn’t give up on the stubborn and beautiful single mother of adorable twin girls.

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.

That is the only word for this bk. The hot and nerdy 29 yr old H who never got over his crush on the h when younger was adorbs. 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.

Boy Toy was such a hoot! The humor is so well done, and I also loved the romance. Sadie definitely deserved to find her HEA, and Liam was the perfect guy to give it to her.

This was a quick and mostly fun read. Boy Toy was probably my favorite in the series. 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, c

What a huge disappointment
If you are on vacation and you like fluffy shallow reads- that's your story.
MCs were unbelievable for me: heroine is a psychologist and with so many issues... Hero was creepy , he was constantly talking with himself when he was 14 years old ("we like her bosom, we'd like to be kissed by her"...)...WTF??!!
He is only 5 years younger, it's almost no difference in age for me...
Funny sometimes, but it didn't keep my interest... I skipped a lot.

Man Hands series will get you laughing out loud and put a smile on your face. What’s not to love with a single mom to two-year-old twins! I know cuteness overload. Also the Hero is five years younger than the Heroine. I don’t usually like it when the Hero is younger, but you know what? It worked for this book and five years isn’t that big of a deal.

❝She smells like flowers. She smells like moonlight and secrets and wishes.❞

I love this duo. Bowen and Eby write as one brain, their collaboration is seamless and deceptively simple, and their stories are hilariously funny, yet tender-hearted. I am a fan for life, and pray they never stop!

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 thought

I absolutely loved this book. I've read quite a few books by Sarina Bowen, but this is my first book by Tanya Eby.
I really enjoy co-authored books. 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

Sadie Matthews is picking up her twin girls from daycare, when she realizes the gorgeous man working there is none other than Liam McAllister, the boy she used to babysit when she was 20 and he was fifteen(ish). He’s grown up in the most delightful way. And yes, romance happens.
