Man Cuffed- Review
By Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby
A 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.
Hey, 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.
Warning: may cause unrestrained giggling in public. Contains: a bridezilla with a turkey leg, a flash mob, and a growly hero.

Man Cuffed is classic Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby. The combination of these two writers produces the funniest and most heartwarming stories. Meg and Mac are both at transition points in their lives when they meet in the funniest way. The best meet cute ever leads to immediate attraction, the flames of which are fanned as they discover they’re new neighbors.
A friendship quickly emerges but the desire for each other simmers beneath the surface. As they negotiate a relationship from friendship to more, before Mac and Meg discover what they want in life. What I especially liked about this book, aside from the hot cop aspect of Mac, was the character of Meg. She has goals even though she might seem flighty. But she’s also at a transition point in her life where she spent years chasing a dream that’s not really working out. She’s at a point where it’s time to consider a new dream. It was gratifying to read about a character who doesn’t have it all together and whose dreams might be changing. In addition to the funny and sweet love story between her and Mac.
