Man Fast ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I loved the premise of this book and I’m so glad that it lived up to my expectations! From the very beginning, the light and fun writing style drew me in and I knew I was going to enjoy the book. The story follows Abby, a teacher who realizes that she’s let herself take a backseat to the men in her life. When her boyfriend dumps her via note, she decides to go on a 74-day fast from men and focus on herself. Her plans go awry when she meets Brennen, Denver’s biggest playboy – if there was ever a man who needed a fast from women, Brennen is it. They are forced to work together in Abby’s first grade classroom, and Abby begins to see a side of Brennen that he tries to keep hidden. Beneath that playboy persona is a great guy just waiting to come out. But as they get closer, the man fast becomes more difficult to uphold, and Abby must choose between giving in and holding strong.
I will readily admit that Brennen was extremely offputting from the start – let’s just say I’m glad he got tested before things excalated between the couple. He most certainly needed a fast from women, since he’s just masking his pain with sex. It took a little while, but he became a truly loveable character whose devotion to Abby was readily apparent. The classroom interactions were also fun to read – Brennan’s certainly not the type of guy most people would expect to excel with 6-year-olds, but it was adorable to read those scenes. The chemistry between the two was clear from the start; if anything, that’s where this story faltered for me. I was expecting more of a slow burn (considering the man fast), but the steam doesn’t take that long to kick in. Overall though, I loved the writing style from this author and would definitely check out the next book in the series. It moved quickly, the characters were endearing, the relationship development was great, the banter was fun to read and the tone was light while still having plenty of emotional depth. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Man Feast ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I liked Man Fast a whole lot, so the fact that I liked Man Feast even more is really saying something. In an opposite scenario from the first book in the series, Man Feast follows two people who have been abstaining for so long that their friends think they are due for a sexual feast. Though this can absolutely be read as a standalone, we met both Jasper and Elle in the first book. After the loss of his parents, Jasper threw himself into work and he believes that it is his duty to ensure that he preserves his parents’ legacy by making their business grow. Elle is a travel writer who has just been hired to promote Jasper’s business and bring in a whole new demographic of customers.The only problem is that these two are like oil and water – their vastly different personalities and views on life make their blood boil every time they come in contact with each other. There is MAJOR chemistry between these two and the sparks fly from the very beginning – their fighting makes them hot in a variety of ways. Elle seems to be the only person who can draw any emotion out of Jasper, and he’s not entirely sure that’s a good thing.
The writing here is great – there is plenty of humor, some tender moments, sexytimes and Jasper turns out to be a pretty romantic guy. Elle finds a way to break him out of his “hollow bunny” shell, and they have a man feast in every sense of the word. Both characters are relatable and endearing, each dealing with their own issues but rising to the challenge. It was so fun to watch Jasper transition from workaholic to fun-loving, and the book flew by. I have a feeling I know what the premise of the third book in the series is going to be, and I am definitely looking forward to getting to know the third Bergen brother.

Man Find ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I liked this book a lot, but I didn’t love it as much as the first two books in the series. If you’re looking at this as the conclusion to the series, it’s completely satisfying. If taken as a standalone, I have one somewhat significant issue with our couple. That being said, it’s got plenty of light and funny moments with heavy doses of emotion thrown in that center around our couple’s need to heal themselves individually before they can fully embrace their relationship. I loved Camden and it was refreshing to read about a hero who has strong feelings for our heroine from the start.
The story follows Camden, the third Bergen Brother. He blames himself for the death of his parents, and has been punishing himself by living in isolation since. He began chatting with a woman online about a year ago and she’s helped bring lightness back into his life, so when she posts a picture of a location in his hometown, he takes that as a sign that he needs to seek her out and pursue a relationship – get a fresh start with a woman who doesn’t know about his past. But when he arrives home, he discovers that his Daisy is in fact Cadence, a woman who is close to his family. She is everything he would want in a woman, but her connection (and her son) mean that he won’t allow himself to get too close.
Camden has strong feelings for Cadence because he’s been speaking to her for a year, so I loved the deep connection there. I loved their whole relationship – the only issue I have with the book is the timeline. While I get why Camden feels so strongly for Cadence, it was much more difficult to believe that a widow who felt like she was cheating on her husband by finding joy talking to another man online would then initiate a summer fling with a man 24 hours after meeting him. Given her complex feelings towards the two other men in her life – her dead husband and her online guy – it was tough to believe she would move so quickly. I would’ve felt a lot better about the book if there was a slower build to them getting together. Other than that, it’s a great book with plenty humor as well as some tender moments. It’s been a fantastic series and I’m sad to see it end, but am looking forward to whatever the author writes next.
