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.
Does anyone else love a book within a book? I know I do, and that was only one of the many things I loved about The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams. This was such a fun and refreshing romance, and I would honestly love to see it on screen because I think it would make for a really funny movie. The antics of Gavin and his teammates, all while he is trying to win Thea back, had me laughing really hard at times. What I also loved, is that even though this book is a light read, there are also so many truths in the plot, and it makes you think a bit as well. There is some steam of course, and I was happy that it didn’t scare me away or I would have missed a very enjoyable story!
I listened to the audiobook which is narrated by Andrew Eiden & Maxwell Caulfield, and even though I wish there had been a female narrator for Thea’s viewpoint, I still really enjoyed it. Both of these guys did an excellent job narrating, and I especially loved the narration for the parts from Courting the Countess. I think The Bromance Book Club took a very good look at what it means to work at a marriage, and how women want actions more than words. I loved how realistic the book was, and Adams’s writing is very engaging and concise. I’m so glad I finally started this series, and I can’t wait to read more of them!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own
