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?

Sweet Abby Brings Light To Brennen

I never mind the playboy who sleeps with every woman possible who once he meets the one never gives another woman a look...but I love that I don’t begin the book with once of his escapades! He is so much easy to love.
Brennen is member of a family in Colorado who owns a mountain and mountain sports athletic business...his parents and grandparents were very much in love and began and ran it before him and his brother Jasper. The parents died in an accident and this changed all three brothers.
Abby is a teacher who has worked very hard all her life and moved to Colorado to be by her cousin Elle. When Brennen is forced to be a volunteer at Abby’s school Brennen and Abby’s lives change forever.
So sweet, romantic, hot and characters, including secondary that you can’t help but love.
Loved this book and onto Man Feast to review.
I received a free audiobook for an honest and voluntary review.

Good for the soul

What an absolutely delightful listen that was so good for my soul! I think the narrator did an amazing job reading this story and making me one with the story. And the story was so good, so light hearted and made me want to move to Colorado. The story had a great flow to it that went incredibly quick

An adorable love story

To be honest this book was suggested to me on a audiobook Facebook group. I wasn’t sure what the story line was but trust this group’s suggestions. This story is so cute! There were multiple times where is audible said “Awwww”. Both characters are well written and you love both. The narration was really great as well, and I like that it’s the same narrator in the second book. I’m looking forward to the second book in the series.

Easy read Fantastic narration

Man Fast was an easy read taming of the playboy book. The story flowed well and I enjoyed the main characters. The next book Man Feast is set up and I will definitely continue to that. The narrator, Monica King is new to me and a great find. I will certainly seek out more of her work.

Flippin Fabulous

This book / read / listen - what ever was absolutely fabulous! I flippin' loved it!!! I loved the characters - both main characters had such great character growth! I loved everything about this read / listen. The narrator was fantastic (loved the accent for Gran) and this listen has the perfect balance of sweet, steamy, and humor. Brennen and Abby are a perfect match of opposites and I love how each grow as their own as well as growing together. I think I've found myself a new favorite author!

cute story about reforming the playboy

Brennan Bergan is a playboy who starts off being egotistical and immature, with a horrible personality but the author hints that the issues run deeper. He’s forced to contribute to society by his grandparents and has to work at an elementary school, where he meets Abby. Abby doesn’t treat him the way others do and he starts to become more real as he starts to learn more from Abby. Abby has been hurt by her long-term now ex boyfriend and no longer wants a relationship, the man-fast. And so a playboy and a good girl have to continue to find common group to accomplish their goals (and fall in love)

This is my first book listening to Monica King and she was good. She did a good job differentiating between the male and female characters and this is done in third person. However, with a dual POV, having both a male and female character would have been preferable.

A billionaire with a heart!

Man Fast, the first book in the Bergen Brothers series, is a billionaire bad boy romance. The storyline is well-written and captures attention from start to end. The characters are delightful and charming. Brennan and Abby have an incredible connection and a charged chemistry. They have both have experienced heartache and become excellent support for each other.

Monica King did an excellent job with the narration, bringing the characters to life. This was an enjoyable audiobook and, I recommend it to fans of the genre. T I received a promotional copy of the audiobook, and my unbiased review is given voluntarily.

Abby & Brennon

Abby & Brennon
Both going through hard times but completely different situations. She is going through a rough breakup and big move. He is a rich man whore and his grandparents are going to cut him off if he doesn’t step up and get his life right. Abby & Brennon end up working together with her 1st grade class and even though she is attracted to him she is on a “Man Fast” and can’t do anything about it. The narration was great I loved the characters and can’t wait to learn about the rest of the family. I definitely recommend this book.

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!

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.

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
