Man Fast is a fantastic start to what is becoming a must read series!! Takes talent to take a man-whore jerk like Brennen and make him relatable and redeemable. Abby, of course, is a delight as we see her grow a spine and discover who she really is. As a side note, I love when an author puts in a particular scene that makes me laugh out loud and want to high five her. For me, that was the scene where Abby's cousin, Elle, gives Brennen a test to see if she'll help him win over Abby. Pure comedy g ...more

Heartache is no joke. Just ask Brennen and Abby. So when a promise of the heart, lands these love fools in over their heads, collateral damage seems imminent. Man Fast begins as a bit of a laugh, but quickly becomes so much more. Sandor has crafted a ballad to a broken heart. For Brennen, tragedy haunts his lyrics. He uses chaos to numb the pain and guilt he refuses to face. That all changes when his solo melody takes on a duet partner that has him rethinking his ways. Abby is his polar opposite ...more

This is a new to me author but what a delight to read this enemies to lovers Rom Com! This book kicks off a series about the Bergen Brothers. Very wealthy but all with some baggage. This is the middle brother, Brennen's story.

The banter and timing was just perfect throughout the book. Abby's students and her elementary teacher background play the perfect foil to messing up the town's biggest playboy. Meddling grandparents, grumpy family members and steaming hot chemistry make this a mu

I had a giggle fest while I was reading Man Fast!!!! But there was a serious side to it as well.

Abby was a brave woman! She left everything behind to start over and by starting over she was focusing on her and not men.....hence MAN FAST!!!!

I loved her friend, Elle, she gave me so many giggles!!!! But then......hello Brennen!!! I have to say, it took me a bit to warm up to him, I thought he was a pompous jerk....he did start to grow on me.

I am so excited to see a new series from Ms. Sandor!! I

Then, you have Brennen Bergen, who is a playboy due to his past and the loss of his parents in an accident. When Brennen's grandparents are fed up with his antics, they give him a doze of reality.

This book was ohhh, so good. This is my first book by this author but it definitely won’t be my last. This book captivated me from the first page and I could not stop reading until the very end. The main characters are hard not to fall in love with and their story is sweet. This author did a great job bringing emotions and laughters into this amazing book. Definitely recommended.

This a great book! I totally enjoyed it. It’s the first in The Bergen Brothers Series. You have Abigail Rose Quinn (aka Abby Rose) who is a teacher and was just dumped by her lame boyfriend of 6 years. She just relocated from Florida to Denver and is now on a self imposed “man fast”. Brennen Bergen is a rich playboy who’s about to be cutoff from the family fortune if he doesn’t get his act together. He is now a volunteer in Abigail’s classroom and is seriously testing her man fest. There is lots ...more

I LOVED this book! These characters had so much chemistry. I could not read this book fast enough!! The author had me from the beginning. I loved Abby..her story is amazing to read and so real. Brennan...he was fun to read and exciting to see what would happens next. I think his character surprised me the most. But, in a good way!

You do not want to miss this book! It’s my new favorite and can’t wait for more to come! Make sure you grab your copy today!

ARC graciously provided to me by the lovely Krista Sandor for an honest review.

I don’t think I have read a book as fast as this one. I loved Quinn and felt for Brennen. This was a more soft, lovey dovey, but with real problems romance story. If you have read Krista’s other books, Langley Park series, they are more suspenseful. This one hit the romance spot and squeezed my heart in all the right places. Plus I couldn’t have connected more with Quinn.....I live in Gainesville, FL not too far from

My first thought when I started reading this book was, “Ugh. Not another billionaire.” And then I learned Brennen was a damaged womanizer. Double ugh. But in no time at all, this bad boy billionaire I wanted to hate had worked his way into my heart and had me cheering for Team Brennen. Ms. Sandor must be some kind of wordsmith wizard because I’m jaded when it comes to this trope. And I’m doubly jaded when it comes to a hero who has a warped perception of some past event that he uses as an excuse ...more

Krista Sandor totally blew me away with the start of this new series! I adored her previous series, but I have a feeling the Bergen Brothers will be some of my favorites. Man Fast is all kinds of fun with sweetness and bits of humor to balance out the heavier emotions that also go along with a true romance. And the swoon? Off the freaking charts! My heart melted countless times during Abby and Brennen’s story.
Abby is so very sweet and kind. You can’t help but feel for her after she’s been dumpe

I have been waiting to read this book forever! I love Krista’s writing and Man Fast made me love it even more. I instantly fell in love with this book the moment I started.

Abby Quinn has had it with men, so she goes on a 74 day Man Fast. Of course, the moment she starts she meets a rather tempting man, Brennen Bergen. Abby is such a loveable and relatable character. She had some sass to her and she really wants to do everything for herself and she wants to find out who she is.

Brennen is a play

A school teacher and Playboy CEO/Billionaire book that I definitely floved!

It's like I'm reading or watching a fairytale story. Dang! Brennen and Abby are so perfect. I can feel their overflowing love and care for each other. They made me cry in happiness, giggle and sigh dreamily.

I love it's simple plot and can't wait for Man Feast!

Where to begin? This is my first novel by this author and I picked it up because I live in Denver and thought heck ya I have got to read this! I am definitely not disappointed and I can’t wait for what lies ahead with this amazing family!

What I loved most about this book was the importance of “family” though both had some tragic backstory they both still had family to help them through! I also loved the friendship that both characters built and how they supported one another! It allowed them to

Abby needs a fresh start and decides Denver is where it should begin. She starts at a private school and she's also decided to go on a Man Fast to find herself. Brennen is Denver's playboy and he's paired with Abby in her classroom thru his family's foundation. There is laughter and moments that will melt your heart in this heartwarming story. I received an ARC of this and volunteered to review it.

What do you do when you need to prove to yourself that you can make it on your own without rushing into anything? You go on a man fast, of course! Abby has been badly burned by the men in her life, so she’s up for a fresh start that’s all about what Abby can do to make her life what it should be. Too bad she meets Brennan during said fast...and Brennan tempts her into breaking it.

What’s not to love? A reformed playboy hunk, a beautiful teacher and a nose-picking 1st grader! Sometimes you just need a feel good, sweet and sexy romance with fabulous characters, and this story fits the bill. I read it straight through! From the first not-so-great encounter to the second cute one I fell in love with Abby Rose and Brennen. Abby with her crazy man fast, fish-out-of-water cuteness and less than great past was everything you want in a heroine. She’s funny, smart and sexy. And tal ...more

Man Fast is my first book by Krista Sandor, and I was more than happy with it. It’s told in 3rd person POV (not my favorite) but I powered on through and came to love these characters. Abby is a new teacher at a prestigious private elementary school in Denver, Colorado. She clashes with Brennen Bergen on her first day when he’s assigned as her voluntary classroom assistant.
Brennen doesn’t want to be there any more than Abby wants him to be, and when he fails to do the one thing she requested he

Man Fast begins as a bit of a laugh, but quickly becomes so much more.

For Brennen, tragedy haunts him and didn't stop him from blaming it on himself. He uses anything to numb the pain and guilt he refuses to face, even if that means being labelled Denver's Biggest Playboy. That all changes when he volunteered at his family's school and met a woman who didn't give a shit who he was. And a few glue sticks made him want to gain her respect and be a man worthy of her.
