Synopsis via Goodreads: 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 fifteen years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.


I’ve just survived the worst year of my life. As a single mom of twin toddlers, I don’t have time for a man. I barely have time to finish a thought. Who knew that Liam McAllister would grow up to be so devastating? He’s everything my husband was not: tall, built, and willing to have a tea party with my girls.

I can’t possibly get involved with him. He’s too young for me. Too handsome. But he’s so persuasive…

*I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

Boy Toy is the third installment in the Man Hands series and probably the story I’ve been most excited to read. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to see Sadie get the happily-ever-after she deserved, but Sarina and Tanya saved the best for last and the wait was well worth it in the end! 

Recently divorced Sadie Matthews is trying to balance work, friends and being a single mother of twins. She decides to enroll her twins in a daycare program to keep them busy while she’s at work and there she runs into Liam McAllister. Sadie hasn’t seen Liam since he was fourteen-years-old and she can’t help but notice what a fine young man he has grown up to be. Liam has had a crush on Sadie ever since he was a teen and now that they’ve run into each other again, he’s ready to take his shot at winning her heart. But Sadie’s not ready to let anyone in just yet, no matter how persuasive they may be…

Sarina and Tanya’s comedic writing style is one that I’ve grown to love and they have surely become one of my favorite author duos. I was cracking up so many times while reading this book and I sped through this bad boy like there was no tomorrow. Boy Toy is probably my favorite book in this series so far. The romance was sweet and hilarious with a little side of angst. I’m also a sucker for single-parent romances because KIDS and in this book we got an adorable set of twins. Kate and Amy are like yin and yang and they too had their own moments where they’d shined.  

In the previous two books, we didn’t get to see much of Sadie because she was busy trying to salvage her marriage, but in Boy Toy we got to see this mama bear in action. Sadie is a little sassier than I expected her to be but I loved it. I also loved seeing her so vulnerable, especially when it came to her flaws because I felt like they were super relatable. I just wanted her to get the HEA she deserved and find someone who would stand by her side through thick and thin. I was actually surprised when I saw that Liam was younger than Sadie, but I loved that he was because it’s not often I read a romance where the hero is younger. Liam might be younger, but the man still has moves! He’s definitely my favorite hero in this series because he’s so patient and great with the twins! He’s the total package and you will easily fall in love with him.

Boy Toy was an entertainingly sweet and romantic read and I definitely recommend the Man Hands series if you’re in the need for some laugh out loud rom coms. I don’t know what Sarina and Tanya have up their sleeves next for their readers but whatever it may be, I’m sure it’ll be hilarious!

I'm Ari, a local NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book and my head up in the clouds. I am also a coffee addict and a chocolate connoisseur. I fell in love with the romance genre about three years ago and I haven't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters, which is ironic because I'm a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. I hope you all enjoy my blog and fangirling with me about all the smutty reads!
