A new comedy from the USA Today bestselling duo!

MacA good cop can always spot trouble. That’s why my senses started pinging the moment I met the hottie next door. The neighborhood may never be the same. First she confuses me for a male stripper and tries to remove my uniform. (The guys on the force will never let me live that down.) And then there’s the breaking and entering.I don’t know what to do with her. My libido has a few ideas of its own, though. Bad, bad ideas.

MegHey, it’s not my fault that Hot Cop’s nightstick gets excited every time we see each other. And I can’t help that someone broke into his apartment. Fine—that last thing was totally my fault. And I intend to make amends. So when he needs a date for his sister’s wedding, I’m there. This is right up my alley. I’m an actor. By the time it’s over, his entire family will believe we’re a couple. Even him.

Warning: may cause unrestrained giggling in public. Contains: a bridezilla with a turkey leg, a flash mob, and a growly hero.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I was introduced to the Man Hands series in the beginning of 2019 by a friend that knew I was a huge Sarina Bowen fan. It had somehow had slipped my radar so when my friend said to check the series out I read all 3 over the first three months of the year. They made me giggle a lot and laugh out loud a lot and I was completely in love with Boy Toy (book #3). So when I saw there was a 4th one coming I was pretty excited. In the end though, there were parts I really loved and parts I was confused by. But like all Man Hands books I laughed a lot, and Meg and Mac together were a trip.

Man Cuffed is the story of Meg and Mac. When Meg meets Mac she mistakes him for a stripper instead of an actual cop. But whatever, she’ll never see him again, right? Wrong. As Meg finds out, after a breaking and entering incident, hot cop Mac is her neighbor. Soon she is sending a lot of time with Mac and the two actual form a friendship. But Mac needs a date to his sister’s wedding and Meg is determined to make his family think they are a couple. What could possible go wrong? Basically… everything.

For me, Mac and Meg’s easy, quirky friendship was the highlight of this story. They were completely different people with completely different lives and careers, yet they had this instant comfort with one another like they had been friends for years. It was easy to buy into their attraction because of that comfort. It made some of the zany things they did feel normal and not over the top. They had a natural chemistry that added to the story and they played off each other so well. I loved that part of the book. And Meg was so crazy crackers I couldn’t help but adore her and her wacky ways. She seemed like the friend that everyone has that just beats to their own drum and you accept that about them and grow to love it.

There were definitely things that confused me in Man Cuffed and stuff I wasn’t crazy about but I don’t want to dwell on that too much. Not every book is going to be a favorite and that is what happened to me with this one. I just found some parts to be over the top and not really fitting into the rest of the story, but that is not how everyone feels and you might not either. All I know is if Sarina(and Tanya) is writing it, I’m reading it, and you should too. Definitely check out the Man Hands series and be prepared to laugh.
