Nothing ventured, nothing banged...
I still don't know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor--our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down...
It can never happen again. I don't even like Braht. He's too slick. He's a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can't I get him out of my head?

There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She's the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don't call her the Ashkicker for nothing.
Eventually I'll win her over...if my past doesn't ruin everything first.

I was looking for a read that was a bit lighter and a whole lot of fun, and Man Card was just what I needed! I was introduced to both Ash and Braht in the first book and I was looking forward to seeing their love/hate relationship turn into something more. Throw this couple into the same workplace, add a little danger and you know that these two would explode throughout the pages!

Ash thrived on control of everything around her; her home life, the work place and her love life. Having Braht in her life seemed to throw all her hard work into the air. He pushed her buttons, he allowed her to drop her walls and she somehow let him into her life without realising it.

Braht knew what he wanted since the first time he set his eyes on her, and that was Ash. He had had a taste of her and knew he wasn't letting her go. He appeared to be an over confident man, who loved his manscaping and being pampered, but he had issues in his past that gave him the drive to be the focused man he was today.

Ash and Braht really did compliment each other well, despite the secrets of their pasts coming back to haunt them. I enjoyed seeing the softer side to Braht and how far he would go for the people he loved. Ash grew into a better person too, being able to trust another person once again. She had a strong connection with her parents that made my heart swell with happiness for her. I enjoyed seeing all the characters from the first book again too, and I look forward to seeing how Sadie's life will turn out!

How I loved Braht and they way he expressed himself! Each time he opened up to Ash, I fell for him a little more!

“It’s the guy who has a firm grip on his man card that can hold your purse. He’s not afraid to be seen with that Tory Burch you like to carry—nice color, by the way. He’ll free up your hands because he likes your hands, and he remembers all the terrific things you can use them for.”

“Any man who tells you that chick flicks are for pussies can’t be any good in bed. Because that man does not speak the language of women.

On October tenth on this spot Sebastian Braht first seduced the woman of his dreams. Casualties: none. Weaponry: dirty talk and first-class salesmanship. Result: only one party shot his cannon, but both parties declared victory multiple times.
