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.

The Bromance Book Club is a Grand Slam for a few reasons:

  1.   Second chance romance between a married couple! I love the idea that these two are fighting for their marriage after years together (and kids).
  2.   Group of alpha men reading romance with the purpose of being better for their significant other! If that doesn’t make you swoon, you are dead inside.
  3.  Genuinely funny! The interactions between the guys is great and there is certainly a lot of levity despite the crumbling marriage.

Gavin, our hero, is a baseball player, which I would imagine is hard on a marriage (so much traveling). I loved that he was willing to do anything necessary to save his marriage. After finding out his wife has been faking her orgasms for years, he doesn’t hesitate to get help from the Bros! That takes courage and humility, which is super sexy. He also has a slight stutter, so when he reads aloud from Courting the Countess to Thea I totally swooned.

Thea, his wife, was a bit underdeveloped in my opinion. She isn’t a bad character or anything, and I liked her, but despite the story being about her marriage, it isn’t really about her. However, I loved that she wasn’t immediately won over by Gavin’s new gestures. She was wary and that felt really natural to me.

The supporting characters are what will make this book a best seller. The guys are funny, charming, and not afraid to go against the modern ideas of toxic masculinity. I can’t wait to get more of their stories!

The story has snippets of the romance the guys are reading and I really thought that was a great touch to the plot. Overall, The Bromance book club will charm you, delight you, and make you believe in love all over again.

In addition to have the ebook and the paperback, I also snagged this book in audio and was not disappointed. The narrator was quite good and I thought the performance really helped make the story come alive.

About Lyssa Kay Adams

Lyssa Kay Adams read her first romance novel in eighth grade after swiping one from her grandmother’s book shelf and was hooked forever.

Today, Lyssa Kay Adams writes full-time from her home in Michigan with a pesky, fluffy K9 assistant named Domino who spends most of his day snoring on her desk (that is, when he’s not burying things around the house).

Things Lyssa loves: Baseball pants, mashed potatoes, and that little clicking sound that scissors make on the cutting table at fabric stores.

Things she doesn’t love: Mean people, melting ice cream cones, and finding food in her underwear drawer.

  1. I’m reading this one right now and it’s taken me 12 days to get to the 90% mark. Gah! I adore Gavin. And I love the other guys. But I’ve never warmed to Thea. Or her sister. I’ve really struggled through this one because of them. Can I just have a story with all the guys… no women? LOL
