Publisher's Summary

Denver's biggest playboy is about to get schooled. 

Rich, powerful, and a former pro skier - nothing and no woman is off-limits to Brennen Bergen. Part of the billion-dollar Bergen mountain sports family, he’s reigned supreme over the Denver social scene with his playboy antics. 

But that’s about to change when he meets Abby Quinn and gets schooled on the man fast.
 

After a disastrous breakup, Abby has sworn off men.
 

No dating. No boyfriends.
 

A complete man fast.
 

She’s starting over in Denver and landed a teaching position at a prestigious elementary school. It’s a temporary post, but if she does a good job, the position could be permanent.
 

Too bad Brennen Bergen has just thrown a wrench into her plans.
 

Forced to shape up or be cut out of his family’s fortune, Brennen must prove he’s a contributing member of the community by volunteering at his former elementary school - Abby’s new school - and the place where he can’t hide behind his bad-boy ways to numb the pain he’s carried for over a decade.
 

Will an attraction between them spell trouble for Abby, or will Brennen finally have met his match?

Loved it!

Have you ever just decided to give up on men? Ever went on a man fast? Abby gets dumped by her loser boyfriend and puts herself on a 74 day man fast. Of course, there’s no way she could have predicted meeting Brennen Bergen. Brennen is a playboy. He is a former pro skier, and has the body to prove it. It’s probably a good thing for Abby’s man fast that she can’t stand him 😂. That just makes Brennen work that much harder. If you are looking for a fun enemies to lovers read/listen, Man Fast has what you are looking for.

Monica did a great job with narrating all of the characters. Grandma Bergen was my favorite voice!

Fun and Romantic!

This was my first Krista Sandor's book, and won't be my last! This is the first book in the Bergen Brothers Series, a Contemporary Romance. I loved Brennen and Abby's story. Their story is beautifully written. Brennen, a former playboy before Abby, is handsome, caring, and supportive. Abby is lovely, kind and caring. Her 74 days Man Fast after a break-up is original. Their story is fun, sweet, flirty, and romantic. The secondary characters are great, and I can't wait to know more about them! Monica King is a new narrator to me. She has a great voice and she did an amazing job with the narration. Looking forward for Man Feast, Jasper and Elle's story, and Man Find, Camden and Cadence's story. I liked the sections Acknowledgements and About the Author!

Fun romance story!

I really enjoyed this book. Excellent job by both the author and narrator. I'm so happy to see that it is only book 1 in a series. I can't wait to see brother #2 meet his match as well!

Man Fast

What a cool idea to do when you go through a bad breakup. I loved the way this book was written and the whole playboy turned good is always a genre I enjoy. This book is beautifully written and gives us a sneak peek of what is to come in the next book. Narration is fantastic as well!

Fun & flirty!

Things are not always as they appear. Abby has moved in with her cousin to start a new life. Things were bad with her old boyfriend, so she is on a 74 day man fast. But when Brennan Bergen walks into her classroom, this fast may not last! This fast, funny and totally entertaining story had me from the start. Abby is a great character. We all have had that feeling at the end of a relationship and Abby's solution to find herself in a random number of days is a stellar idea. She is smart and while not completely confident, knows herself well enough that she needs time. Brennan is the one that is just so easy to fall fall. The misunderstood, wealthy man needs to come to terms with life, and who better than Abby to help him with that. Add in a 1st grade classroom of fun kids and beautiful scenic descriptions of Denver, and this book is a hit. I loved it!

Monica King is a new narrator for me, and I absolutely loved her. She connected with the characters and her voices were perfect for them. I will definitely be looking for more of her talents in the future.

Delightfully sweet romance!

"Man Fast" took me by surprise, and I’m honestly elated with how much I loved it! Abby is a school teacher, who relocated due to a terrible break-up and had decided to swear off men in a 74-day “man fast” to rediscover herself. Brennen Bergen is Colorado’s notorious playboy, and in a last ditch effort to save his family’s respect as well as his spot in the family business, becomes Abby’s volunteer helper at her school. The chemistry between these two characters is amazing, and their blossoming romance is a slow burn with a few obstacles along the way, leading to a whole lot of sassy, sexy, sweet and funny moments that makes their story quite the page turner. I wanted nothing more than to see these two together! The secondary characters were a fantastic addition, adding depth and background to this charming tale, and I can’t wait to read on to see what’s in store for the next Bergen brother. This was my first listen by narrator, Monica King, and I was just blown away by her performance. She added so much life and personality to these characters, elevating the story for a truly enjoyable and delightful listening experience.

Enjoyable overall

New to me author and narrator. I enjoyed it overall, but I admit I got bored. Solid writing, but the story was predictable.
Narration was very good, nice tone and cadence.

Excellent

Man Fast is the first book in the Bergen Brothers series and I enjoyed every minute of it. This enemies to lovers romantic comedy was fast paced, sweet and steamy with likable characters you will be rooting for and a cast of extended characters you will love. I liked Abby and Brennen, they had great chemistry together and I loved their interaction with each other and the students. Although there were some serious moments, this story made me laugh and I was hooked from beginning to end. I can't wait for the other book in this series. I loved it and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of romantic comedies.
I listened to the audiobook version of this novel which was narrated by Monica King. She is a new to me narrator and I enjoyed her narration style. Her voice was clear and understandable and she had excellent pace and timing. It was a pleasure listening to her narrate this novel.

Must Listen!

Man Fast by Krista Sandor is a contemporary romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Monica King. This is the first book in the Bergen Brothers Series.

This is the first book of Krista’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. You can’t help but fall in love with Brennen an Abby. I can’t wait until the second book Man Feast is released on Audible.

Monica did an amazing job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of her work in the future.

Commiting to a fast, just before a grand feast!

Abby's boyfriend dumps her and she makes her way to her cousin in Denver. After a lifetime of unreliable men, she commits to two things: 1. A man fast for 74 days, and; 2. A new job at a prestigious private school. If only the fates were going to make it easy for her. Instead an infuriatingly arrogant and wealthy man ends up as her classroom volunteer and he is the tempting feast to her fast.

Between the field trips, competitions, classroom antics, supply closets and interested family members, Abby and Brennan need to figure out how to take their attraction to the next level without breaking any prior commitments.

This book is sweet, romantic, funny and delightful. I hope the other Beren brothers are just as entertaining because I am looking forward to whatever is next in the series.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Loved it! Great narration

Monica King does a great job bringing these characters and this story to life. I enjoyed listening to her.

Oh my goodness I love this story! I so thoroughly enjoyed it. From the setup to the characters to the actual story. It just worked really well for me. It took me through a whole range of emotions. I also spent quite a bit of time chuckling at what went on. I enjoyed watching how their relationship grew and changed and how they coped with what was going on. I'd love to spend more time with them.

Brandon and Abby!

Brandon appears to be living the perfect life and enjoys the bachelor lifestyle to the extreme, but appearances can be deceiving. A tragedy in his past has left him emotionally scarred and he is still living with the guilt and regret on a daily basis. He is not happy that his family has advised if he doesn’t clean up his act he will be disinherited especially when his first assignment is volunteering at the elementary school he once attended.

Abby has recently started a new teaching job and is trying to make a good impression when her first two encounters with Brandon do the exact opposite. She would have preferred to have anyone but him as her assistant but she realizes that there is a lot more to the man than first appears and he is about to test her plan to not be distracted by a man to the limits.

I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and both the story and the performance is one of my favorites. The chemistry between Abby and Brandon is off the charts, the humor will have you laughing out loud but it is the emotion of the story and what Brandon is willing to do to win the girl he loves that will melt your heart.

Beautiful

Slow burn at its best. This one teases you in all the right ways. It’s funny, it’s sad, it’s hot and it’s perfect.

This is light and fluffy while dealing with some very heavy topics. Such an unbelievably good read

The narrator took a story I loved in book form and just added so much to it. Absolutely fantastic

Love love love

I loved this book. I found myself trying to find an excuse to listen even when I should have been doing other things. Abby is so relatable and kind and always sees the best in people and Brennen needs just that. Their relationship is so sweet and I love how hard he works to make himself a better man instead of the debauched bachelor he had become. Highly recommend!
