After graduation, Jules lied to her father about being offered an internship at a newspaper in Maine. When in reality she was working as a nanny ti earn enough money during the Summer before heading into the real corporate world. She found herself working with a sexy as sin man by the name of Liam who was testing her in so many ways.
Liam Hollow was a prick to Jules the first time they met, he and his friends met Jade (Jules' best-friend) two weeks prior to meeting Jules. So Liam just assumed that the besties were alike but he couldn't be more wrong.
Jules and Liam got to know each other better, the dynamic of their relationship started to change. They both realized that they were wrong about each other. Liked the way they were with little Dylan and the bond they shared with Samantha.
I loved the twists and turns, it was a delightful pleasure to be able to relate to the characters. After what they all went through it was great to see them make through the other side together as an extended family that they were.
MANSERVANT is a standalone romantic comedy by Sahri J. Ryan. It was funny, riveting, sexy and a must read. Shari J. Ryan did a magnificent job.

On a serious note, this book is like a person. There are many layers, and as you get into them more and more things start to go one direction, then flip around, slap ya in the face and haul their butts the other way. I laughed, cried (once, dang you Shari) and then laughed some more. The balance of serious, crazy and wtf moments is great. Both Julia and Liam are both stubborn, snarky, yet intelligent somewhat grown ups. I say somewhat cause, come on, they are like children at summer camp a few times. Not that that is bad. Heck no. It was entertaining to say the least.
There is a serious side to them both. Julia sees it in Liam when she pulls a 'Grace' and busts her butt on the stairs, and then again when he saves her from drowning... We see it in Julia when she knows something is bothering Liam and she is there to help him. They are both from different sides of the track but in the end they are just what the other needs.
This story is fast paces, a little on the crazy, naughty side, yet hysterical just when you need it to be. Watch yourself though, there is Surfer talk which causes a few problems to come up. Any one else may have gotten concerned, but not me I laughed so hard at Julia that I fell off the bed... so her 'Graceful' moments are catching. Watch yourself.
I loved the back and forth banter between Liam and Julia and the slow burn it provided. The characters were witty and their exchanges were fun.I could have done with a little less of Julia’s friend Jade; the relationship was a bit of a distraction from the story. Once Liam and Julia move past their shared antagonism, the chemistry between the two was off the charts. Liam was the typical, swoony, alpha male, but it was his interaction with Dylan, the boy whose care Julia is charged with, that truly makes him desirable.
The story is told from a first person POV from both characters’ perspectives and the storyline is one of those that grabs you right away and won’t let loose.
Manservant was a great read. Yeah, it was a bit fluffy and was an HEA that was tied with a bow at the end but it made for a great afternoon escape. It will make for that perfect pool or beach read, especially if you can set your eyes on some surfers. ;)
