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.

My Thoughts

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!
