Thanks for stopping by! Today I’m sharing my review for The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams which is book 8 of my 20 Books of Summer challenge. First things first though let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
What can I say the title to this book grabbed me instantly. Then when I read the description I knew I had to buy a copy. I’m so glad I did because this book was fun! It was great to experience a romance from a male perspective especially when it’s Gavin, a baseball player who finds his marriage in trouble. Desperate to fix things with his wife he joins a secret book club. However this is no ordinary book club and it might be the only thing that can save Gavin’s marriage. Here he finds help in the romance department from this unlikely group and learns a few things along the way! This book had me smiling away to myself. The banter within this group was very entertaining especially Mack and the way he easily winds Gavin up. The fact that they were reading a regency romance in the book club also appealed. I do love my historical romance! The excerpts from that book were a great addition to the story.
I have to say it was also very refreshing to read a romance between a couple that had already got together but were now experiencing trouble. I guess this is a story about what happens after the happy ever after. The way this couple struggled to communicate was a big issue and even though they still loved each other maybe that just wasn’t enough. It helped that both Gavin and Thea had flaws. I guess in a way it made me to root for them even more. The Bromance Book Club moved at a great pace and was entertaining with a few sizzling moments along the way too. A quick, light and fun read! I’m already looking forward to the next book in the series.
