The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams Review

"Love is enough. It’s always enough.”

All of the characters were annoying.

Thea let her past take over too much of the relationship and her feelings. Liv was just absolutely annoying and not supportive. Gavin didn’t handle things well and failed Thea’s ‘tests’. It was a roller coaster of annoying characters who didn’t know how to communicate with each other.

Beyond that though, I love the idea of a Bromance Book Club. I think men would benefit greatly from reading some romance novels. I even went to hand my fiancé the book and said, “maybe you should read this”. He laughed at me because he doesn’t read but that is neither here nor there.

I wish that we would have learned a bit more about the other men’s struggles with their wives. How the book club got started. Those types of things.

I think the best parts of the story were:
-the pumpkin spice latte scene
-the first date
-the awards ceremony
-the grand gesture

If you like romance, I do suggest you pick this book up to give it a try. I will read Undercover Bromance (book 2) to see how I like that one. I do think authors should get a second chance if I don’t LOVE the first one of theirs I read. I also think it was partially because I am in such a fantasy mood that reading a romance just wasn’t what I was craving.

The first rule of book club: You don't talk about book club.

Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott's marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him.

Welcome to the Bromance Book Club.

Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville's top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage. But it'll take a lot more than flowery words and grand gestures for this hapless Romeo to find his inner hero and win back the trust of his wife.
