Boy Toy is the third book in the Man Hands series, which revolves around three friends who all happen to be divorced, and are looking for distraction but end up finding love. In this book, we get Sadie’s story, although we’ve gotten glimpses of what’s going on with her from the very beginning. Sadie has two twin girls who she loves but are exhausting the way that babies are, times two. We’ve known her marriage is kind of rocky all along, but near the end of the second book, Man Card, we find out that her husband has been banging the nanny.
When the action picks up in this book, Sadie is done with nannies (obviously), but still needs care for her girls, so she enrolls them at a local daycare center. She is started to find that the person in charge of the 2 year old room is a walking wet dream named Liam.
Liam makes a beckoning motion to me, and for a split second I think he’s asking me to sit in his lap. I’m giving the invitation some serious consideration when I realize that he means for me to pass the duffel bag to him.
Sadie has no intention of actually following through on her lustful thoughts toward Liam, especially since she used to babysit him more than ten years before. But after one two many Red Headed Sluts, a very drunk Sadie paws all over Liam and he graciously offers himself as tribute to end her sexual dry spell. But later, when she’s sober.
Sadie feels a lot of push and pull toward her growing feelings toward Liam, especially when she finds out that he has plans to continue his PhD research in Europe. Of course, there’s also conflict with Sadie’s relationship with her ex-husband and his lackluster parenting, along with his revolving door of girlfriends.
She’s judging my shorts, flip-flops, and Sesame Street T-shirt. It features Cookie Monster with an empty cookie jar, reading “Straight Outta Cookies.” The receptionist doesn’t like it, but I can assure you this shirt is very popular with the under-three set.
Overall, this was a satisfying conclusion to the series. It was just as funny and sweet as the other books, and there was a lot of sizzle between Sadie and Liam. I enjoyed all of the fun interactions between the twin girls and just about everyone. I read the whole book in one day. It’s a fun, funny, great summer read, and I’m sure everyone else will enjoy this as much as I did.
