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?
Shari J. Ryan wrote one of the most emotional books I have ever read with A Heart of Time, but I also fell in love with her words. She is an amazing writer that can pull on your emotions and put you through an angst-filled ride. So, Man Flu was a quite the surprise. This one was filled with laugh out loud moments. Still an emotional read as we see Hannah’s journey, but lighter than previous books I have read by her.
In her early thirties, Hannah finds herself divorced, but even worse, her ex and his new play thing are now her neighbors. Now she is learning to deal how to be a single, working parent, deal with her ex and move forward. I loved Hannah. Even with everything she has been through, she is strong and determined.
Logan Grier is now a retired MLB player. He was able to live his dreams, even so, he wants more out of life and decides to use his degree. He was a flirt, but you can’t help but like him. Now he finds himself working for Hannah.
When Hannah finds herself in a situation she never expected, two men hit with the Man Flu, the laughter ensues. All woman who have cared for a man who has been sick knows exactly what I am talking about. I laughed so much.
Man Flu is a second chance at love story that will have you smiling. I loved the characters and the story so much. I also loved Hannah’s journey throughout this story and learning to find herself again. A great read from Shari J. Ryan.
