Product Description

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 Grab this book and spend some hours entertaining yourself with the idea of abs, oiled bodies and hot sex! 19 February 2016

Ever wonder how is the live of a cover model? No? Here's your chance. Grab it!
I really enjoyed this book. From the cover, to the plot, it made me laugh and sigh quite sometimes.
I haven't read (yet) Sunshine & Whiskey, the first book in the Drinking series, where some of the characters already appeared, but I cant wait to read it and know more about them.

So in this book, we get to know Brad Ellis story. He's a personal trainer at a gym, he's also a painter and a cover model! He's gorgeous, sexy and loves sex, (who doesn't, right?). He's friends with benefits with Mad, but the thought of her with other men makes him mad... between his appearances in book signings, the sex offers, his dog and his friend Duncan, "Meat" has a lot of things to take in consideration, his love life being the first of all.

Grab this book and spend some hours entertaining yourself with the idea of abs, oiled bodies and hot sex!

5.0 out of 5 stars Meat is a must-have! 21 February 2016
By JennDonald - Published on

5 Meaty Stars

Brad “Meat” Ellis just doesn’t get it! He’s a cover model, a trainer, a total hottie and he’s also a bit of a hot mess when it comes to women. We first meet him in Sunshine & Whiskey (one of my favorite books, seriously, go read it) when Megan and Laura hit Vegas and it’s also where he earned the nickname Meat. This is his story, about working hard, playing hard and trying to figure out that you don’t have to be perfect to be perfect for the right person.

I had so much fun reading this book, it’s so full of laughs and heart! There is more to Ellis than just the hot body and I loved getting to see the more vulnerable side of him. He’s cocky and a bit obnoxious sometimes, but he has such a good heart. And god, he’s funny, some of the things he thinks and says just makes me laugh so hard. But at the end of the day he wants to be good enough, to prove himself to that one perfect girl who’s really always been there. Oh so much epic swoon once he figures it out.

There are wonderful friendships, cringe-worthy crazy fans, a whole lot of Instagram posts and half naked hot guys in this story and I loved every single minute of it! R.L. Griffin has created such a fantastic group of characters and I just want to go have a drink with them, even though drinking with Duncan and Ellis could be dangerous! And I just have to add, Duncan, oh yeah, I want more of his story (hint hint).

R.L. Griffin is one of my favorite authors, her books make me laugh, make me cry, sometimes break me but no matter what they touch my heart and stick with me. Manbuns & Martinis is certainly one of her lighter books, and with her fantastic sense of humor it’s a perfect addition.

“Maybe that’s the problem with waiting until something is perfect, it never is.”

“Make it count. Never quit hustling.”

There is only one thing that is certain when it comes to Griffin’s books…Expect the unexpected! Manbuns and Martini’s was such a fun read that I completely devoured it. I wish it were a bit longer but only because the characters felt so real to me I was thrown back to my bartending/ gym rat days..and Vegas boy oh boy VEGAS Baby! Lol seriously I cannot recommend this enough. If you are looking for a very fun and light escape, jump.on.this. Another thing you can always expect from Griffin is magic…regardless of the read or the lightness of it all there are always deep underlying themes that will make your heart smile.

When I first started this I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about Meat. We will just say he starts on the less than favorable side of Ria. As we get to know him and his situation something begins to change and the reader begins to see things for the way they really are. Though he has come to terms with his past it doesn’t erase that Meat’s life has been full of pain. Losing his constants that have always tethered him is the most terrifying part of his life. Dreams can change but losing those dearest is completely unimaginable. Meat tends to push when he should pull, but the inevitable begins to unravel and its quite fun to see. The way this is composed was so fun and entertaining that I had a smile on my face or laughter bubbling up from beginning to end.

Thankfully my, super sexy, secretly sweet, lost boy has the epiphany everyone is waiting for. Until that point however, get ready for some blushing moments and serious laughs. Oh and there is some seriously legit advice in there. Like it’s good… girls, when you read this novella you should really heed it. The guy advise is really on point too. LOL. I know books are not in shortage but excellent authors that deliver gem after gem are! R.L. Griffin is just one of those authors that can take words and transform them into actual feelings that are contagious, endearing and dare I say enlightening, regardless of the genre prepare to have your socks blown. Auto buy list for SURE!

My Rating
4.5 So fun, I remember it like it was yesterday, Vodka mmm, Phones, Texts, News, Abs, Instagrams, Swipe Right, Hash tags, Lolita is never far, I will say bye for Now…But I hope to see more Meat soon!!

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!
