The Man Cave Collection: Four Steamy Standalone Romantic Comedies by Shari J. Ryan

The Man Cave Collection: Four Steamy Standalone Romantic Comedies by Shari J. Ryan are four hilarious, witty, loving stories you won’t put down!


 - 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.


MAN FLU - 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.

Meanwhile, 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.


 - I’m a Boston girl through and through, but when I was given an ultimatum that would determine whether I’d have income or not, I opted for the option with a roof over my head. The only problem was, I had to move down to a small town in South Carolina, leaving behind the only place I’ve ever called home.

Some may not consider my move to be a big deal, but it turns out that having a big mouth and being mildly impatient isn’t quite acceptable in small town. In other words, I pretty much stick out like a sore thumb, which is great when unknowingly attracting the most eligible bachelor in town.

There’s nothing quite like being mistaken for a damsel in distress and fainting in this man’s arms ... then saying a whole bunch of stupid things I’d regret later.

Thankfully, Austin isn’t like the other kind-natured locals; he’s a little dirty, kind of arrogant, and a way too good-looking for his own good. In fact, we’re a bit like-minded with our attitudes, which causes a futile encounter that leads to a pair of handcuffs in a restaurant.


 - I got out of the Marine Corps to give my daughter a better life. I’m a strong and capable single dad. I got this, right? Not so much.

The one thing my daughter wants is the hardest to find—a mom. It’s not like they’re selling hot intelligent women at Walmart these days, and with the amount of baggage I’m carrying around, I might be out of luck.

Yeah, so.

We moved from Oahu to Maui. I needed a job, a place to live, and to get us settled. I thought it would be simple, but let’s just say . . . mistakes have been made.  

· Mistake #1:  I took the first job I was offered. (Should’ve probably asked a couple more questions about the required uniform.)

· Mistake #2: I flirted with Kai, the first attractive woman who crossed my path. (So far out of my league she might as well be a Hawaiian princess.)

·Mistake #3: I fell head over heels for that woman. (See Mistake #2.)

Now I’m standing here showing my butt—no, literally. It's the required uniform at Man Buns, the restaurant I’m working at. (See Mistake #1).

In any case, I can tell you one thing—it’s damn near impossible to convince the woman I can’t live without to take me seriously when I’m serving up burgers, half-naked, and women are constantly ogling my assets.

I’ve gotta try, though. Because Kai is the woman for me. I’ve just gotta get these man buns in gear and figure out how to win her over.

Tracey’s Review:

Man buns

Shari Ryan this story is romantic bliss wrapped up in a bow of humor, sass, longing, and love. Shari the breathtaking beauty regarding chasing your hopes and dreams after tragedy unfolds will stay with me long after the last page has been read.

While single dad, Denver, keeps daughter Aya his number one focus, he is delighted to find beautiful Kai is the woman of his dreams.

She is not your typical twenty eight year old and she’s never dated or kissed a guy, let alone a guy that has to work his Man Buns to make a living.

This book has witty banter, sexy moments, tender love and devastating heartbreak, but it grabs on to your heart and doesn’t let go.

Man handler

Shari Ryan this story is all around heartfelt, funny and sweet. You made me laugh so much as Scarlet and Austin navigated through the craziness of falling in love in a small town. Maybe you can take the girl out of the city and she can thrive or maybe not. Everyone should read this so they can learn why not to wear high heels ever, or try ice cream at a fair, or mess with a pig. Scarlet has a mouth that won’t quit and fire in her soul. She is just what this good ole country boy needs. They take each other out of their comfort zones in the best way. This is a feel good story you won’t put down.


This is a funny story about a couple that have to work around the Man-flu and other obstacles. They are co-workers looking for a second chance at love. They go thru so many wild situations, you start to think they can handle anything. I laughed out loud so much. You know how guys get when they don't feel good, so you know things will get out of control. Add in the crazy Exes and this is an interesting ride you don't want to miss.
