Manservant ~ Shari J Ryan ~ New Release

Cover Design: MadHat Books
Release Date: May 15, 2017
I just wanted an easy summer job… That didn’t happen. Now, I’m in a living nightmare as I work alongside this monster of a man with mesmerizing emerald eyes that look at me inappropriately every time I see him. To add insult to injury, he has a tan I just want to lick, and a butt worth drooling over every time he purposefully walks by me. But, he's an asshat, and looks are everything. I mean, aren't. LOOKS. ARE. NOT. EVERYTHING. Why do I have to keep reminding myself of this? His job is to clean, cook, and tend to the house we work in. That's why I call him the manservant. Oh, and because it drives him nuts. That's what he gets for torturing me. This is a story of little restraint, too much desire, questionable actions, no strength whatsoever, and the best sex I've ever had. The question is: Do I fall for this crude manservant whose idea of a fun time is to tie people up and do obscene things, or do I give him a taste of his own medicine? All I'm going to say is . . . Things get weird, then hot, then weird again, and—you get my drift. Go ahead and laugh. It might not be so funny if it happened to you.

Review Copy Provided by Author

I really don't know what to think here - Ms. Ryan is a new author for me, so I don't have anything to compare Manservant too, but honestly it felt like this book was a little confused.
I like Julia and Liam and the teasing/angst fren-enemy vibe they had going to hide the sexual tension between them. I even found Liam's antics around Julia's dates with other people entertaining.
My frustration, for lack of a better word, is the myriad other issues that seemed the be surrounding these two. Some of the issues were relevant and at least tangentially related to the story, but others seemed to just be extraneous. Ms. Ryan also tended to put Julia in situations that had potential to be funny, but seemed to go too far and pass straight into awkward to the point of being painful.
Even though I struggled to connect with this book, I am still curious to read Ms. Ryan's other works.
