Hot New Release ~ 4 Stars for Man Flu by Shari J. Ryan!

Man Flu – A Stand-Alone Romantic Comedy

Shari J. Ryan

Now Available



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 major-league baseball player, Logan Grier. With his panty-dropping smile, he’s like an expertly photoshopped version of David Beckham, and he’s single. Could life be perfect after all? Of course not. As always, there had to be a catch. Logan had a secret, and I couldn’t help feeling like the truth was dangling right in front of my face.

With Rick’s daily agenda of torturing me, Logan has been an enticing distraction, despite the little fact that he’s my temporary employee. Plus, I didn’t exactly care that his flirty behavior may have been a plan to get in good with the boss. In any case, I was willing to toss a few balls with him, seeing as my playing field hadn’t had any action in over a year.

That’s when it happened…my two worlds collided. Hot temp met the ex, and a full-on bromance was born, but that’s only the beginning.

The “man flu” has come out of nowhere and hit both Logan and Rick with a virus they’re claiming to be worse than childbirth. In fact, they’re pretty sure their end is near.

Will the “man flu” be the kiss of death, or will it be my window for an opportunistic change?


My Review

4 Stars!

Hannah is my spirit animal! I am telling you now, if you are a mother who has ever doubted herself, read this book. Hannah is a hot mess and she will make you feel all kinds of better about yourself. The book will also make you wish you had a Logan for yourself, but hey, we can’t have everything.

This book is great! First of all, Shari J. Ryan’s writing style is perfect for this book – easy, conversational, flows well. Then there is the plot – single, divorced mom of one, working full time at a mom’s magazine run by men. She has a sassy assistant Brielle, who just says whatever whenever. Hannah’s daughter, Cora, is absolutely hysterical with her frank outburts and inability to not tell the honest, hard truth. Tiana is the new girlfriend of Hannah’s ex who is just dumb. Rick, the ex, is so smarmy and obnoxious he’s the guy you love to hate. Then, there is Logan. Oh my Logan! He is hot, sexy, sweet, says what’s on his mind and he does not give Hannah an inch when she goes all poor me.

Okay, so let’s get to the real fun! The ManFlu! Ladies and gents, the man flu portion of this book is pee your pants funny! Let me just warn you, Shari J. Ryan is not afraid of descriptively describing the bodily fluids that go along with the flu. So, if your stomach isn’t friends with this kind of thing, you can just read the dialogue on those pages and still get the gist of the story. Anywho, Ryan hit the man flu on the head. She also hit Hannah’s reaction to said man flu on the head.

Is it wrong of me to have a girl crush on Hannah? No? Yes? Who the heck cares? I totally do!!

This book will make you laugh, swoon, cringe (a lot of cringing) and maybe even cry (happy tears, of course). I highly recommend it!
