Product Description

My name is Brad Ellis. You think you know me. You don't know shit. I've been a hustler my entire life. I work three jobs to get what I want, but I'm not there yet. I live with a roommate that has been my best friend for over a decade and we make it work, but life is hard. It's always been hard, until I met Megan Walker.

Sometimes people come into your life and you think it's just for fun and games. Then they turn into one of the most important people. Don't take anyone for granted, because as soon as you do they will be gone.

I'm a cover model.
I'm a dreamer.
Never stop hustling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious novella and we get to see a deeper side to Brad Ellis 20 February 2016

Manbuns & Martinis (Drinking Book #1.5) by RL Griffin
4 stars!!

“…you’ve always been good enough Ellis. The problem is that you didn’t trust that I thought you were.”

Meat, Meat, Meat…we met this larger than life character in the first book in the Drinking Series, Sunshine and Whiskey, Meat/Brad Ellis was the male cover model that the girls met on their epic road trip. They still keep in contact and I fell in love with Meat’s carefree attitude way back then, but for all his brashness and obnoxiousness Meat was a man that really showed his vulnerable and tender side throughout this novella and this was a side I was not expecting but welcomed with open arms.

I have to admit, when it comes to humour, mine is a little weird and a lot goes over my head…maybe it is because I am British, I don’t know, but with this book I had many laugh out loud moments so RL Griffin’s dry and dirty sense of humour was not lost on me this time. While I found myself laughing with him I also found myself laughing at him such is the swing within these pages. But this novella was perfectly balanced with many laughs, a lot of swoons and even a few tears as we got to learn about the man on the cover and there is a lot more to him than you would have ever thought.

“How do you know all that? You really do have a vagina.”

I love the friendships within these pages too, this is what I have adored about this series, how friendships are treasured and nurtured and how close these people actually are. Despite their fleeting connection to Brad the girls do appear from time to time and I love their text messages to one another, you can always expect a dose of honesty and sometimes that is just what Brad needs.

“Life is interesting, sometimes the right person comes into your life at the right time and sometimes the right person has been in your life forever and you were waiting on the perfect time. The timing is never perfect, make it perfect. Make it count. Never quit hustling.”

So the cover…yes I know, I have seen the comments, tighty whities and all that, but this was tongue in cheek and I loved RL Griffin’s humour with the cover, after all we are dealing with the life and times of a book cover model. I have to say, when I first saw it I burst out laughing, getting the humour intended but I would hate for those that have been put off to miss it, so please keep in mind that good old adage “never judge a book by its cover,” after all you would miss out on a really fun novella from RL Griffin.

So all I can say is read it!! It is fun, it is a quick read but most of all it was a great insight into the man and I loved what I saw. While he has his game face, the man underneath was a sheer joy to read about and you will only end up loving him more…even though he does wear tighty whities.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up to Sunshine & Whiskey!! Funny, light and a lot of fun! 22 February 2016

I was lucky to be given an advanced copy of Manbuns & Martinis. It’s such a fun novella!

Ok. Let’s start with the cover. Yeah, I know. Don’t judge a book by its cover and all that. And I don’t. I honestly don’t. But this one. Sigh. It’s Jase. Enough said. It’s gorgeous.

So you look at the cover. Then you turn the page and read the first sentence and you know it’s going to be good. Ok. You don’t really turn the page- you swipe since you are reading on an electronic device. But you get the point. Anyway. You start reading and you know it’s going to be great. From the very first sentence to the last, I loved it.

Brad “Meat” Ellis is such a fantastic character. Yes he’s a little cocky and a little obnoxious but he’s really a sweet guy. He’s a little immature but he doesn’t mean harm. And oh my god is he funny. I was literally laughing like an idiot at some of the things he said and did. No lie. I was cracking up. I love books like that. Books that are fun and make me laugh and smile. How can you not love Brad? Seriously. He may be a bit much but he’s adorable. And under the pretty face and hot body, he is just a guy who needs to grow up and realize what and who are important to him.

Ok. Let’s talk Duncan. Brad and he are quite the pair. They have an awesome friendship and their shenanigans will crack you up. Duncan needs a book. Like ASAP. Maybe I will start bothering RL for that right now. Because seriously, it would be awesome.

So. It’s funny, it’s light, it’s awesome, and it’s enjoyable. It’s fab. You will love it. You know I wouldn’t lie to you. Go one click now and thank me later!
4.0 out of 5 stars Who is @ellisland69? 25 February 2016
By Pet - Published on Amazon.com

I have to admit that I didn't read Sunshine and Whiskey yet, so this was my first introduction to Meat. This book was a lot of fun. For anyone who has ever attended a book signing, there was a lot that was immediately recognizable and some that I would have never thought about. The fact that the models starved themselves and were just as body conscious as most of the women there just made me chuckle. Also, that they obsessed about eating everything they could get a hold of after the signing was over.

The one thing that I wish Griffin had told us was who was @ellisland69? I think that would have been a great surprise if it had been Madison or Megan. I really think that Madison needed to be clearer with Brad (Meat) if she didn't like the way the relationship was going, but overall I thought both were to blame for the way things played out.

Overall, this is a fun book with really likeable characters and I will be going back to read Sunshine & Whiskey immediately.

I loved this book, as I've loved every one I've picked up from this author.

This is a novella that follows Sunshine & Whiskey. If you haven't read that one yet, I would suggest reading it first. The main character here, Brad by name and Meat by nickname, was a secondary character in that novel.

This is a quick, entertaining read. The relationships between the characters are real, and you get to know them and care about what happens to them. This author has a great gift for telling peoples stories, how they relate to each other, the world, and themselves. You leave a novel wondering about the minor characters like Brad and wanting to know where he goes after the cover closes.

Check it out. You'll like it. :)
4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great... 26 February 2016

When I saw this book was released I was thrilled; I loved Sunshine & Whiskey and couldn't wait to fall back into a story with familiar characters! That being said, I was slightly disappointed with this book. The writing is hilarious, as always, and I love that it reads the way someone would speak. But I feel there was something missing in this book. I also feel it was much shorter than the first one was; I started this book on my lunch hour and finished it before bed the same evening without reading it all afternoon. Overall it was an entertaining story (how could it not be entertaining with Meat?) but I feel it could've been better.
