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?

Man Flu by Shari J. Ryan is my top romantic comedy of 2018! It is also on my list of all-time favorite romantic comedies! Very few writers can make me laugh like she did with this one.

Poor Hannah is tired, emotionally and physically. She is a single, working mother trying to be the best mother and trying to excel in her job. She is doing a bang up job at both, even if she is too tired to realize it. She can’t stand her ex who is just a boy in a man’s body, and she can’t escape him because he is her neighbor. If that wasn’t bad enough, his mistress lives next door as well. Her only distraction is her new temp, the hot, sexy Logan. This is where things get very, very interesting. I don’t want to say too much because I want readers to enjoy this as much as I did. Be prepared to fall in love with Logan just like I did. This guy is the whole package!

Ryan really does a great job of illustrating the challenges that single mothers face, and she does it with a whole lot of humor. At times, Hannah, is a trainwreck, but I couldn’t help but love her! Her innermost thoughts were HILARIOUS! Logan complements her so well, getting her to relax. This man is perfect! You will see what I mean once he enters Hannah’s crazy world. Cora is a doll, a spitfire. I would love to have a book about her when she gets older. She could have an entire series just written about her!

I love quirky characters, and Ryan gave us our fair share of them in this book. That was my favorite aspect of the book. It made it even more heartwarming and charming.

Ryan had my attention in her acknowledgements about her husband having the flu at the time she was writing this. Ironically, I was sick (thankfully not the flu) as I began this. As I am writing this review, I’m still not well. But just like, Hannah, I can’t be sick any longer because my teenage son has what I had, and you would think it was the end of the world. So, I can totally relate. As crazy as he makes me when he is sick, at this time next year when he is gone to college, I will miss this. Thank you, Shari J. Ryan, for a wonderful story of romance, family, friendship, parenting, and second chances. I am looking forward to reading more from this amazing writer!
