Hi Everyone! It’s Becky. A friend reviewed The Bromance Book Club on Goodreads and the description totally convinced me I had to read it.
Title: The Bromance Book Club
Author: Lyssa Kay Adams
Note: I listened to the audiobook.
Summary: Gavin Scott is the star second baseman of the Nashville Legends but his marriage is a mess. Gavin just found out that his wife, Thea, had been faking her orgasms throughout their marriage and in a moment of hurt Gavin moved out of their home. Now, Gavin wants his wife back but she isn’t ready to take him back. Gavin’s friends recruit him to join their guys only romance book club where he will learn the lessons on love from books written by women for women. Can Gavin learn enough to win back his wife so they can get their happily ever after?
Review: I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this book when I started it. It seemed like a cute idea but I was worried that it would be a little condescending. I really didn’t need to worry. The book was just kind of adorable. Gavin was a great contemporary romance main character. He is damaged and has unresolved issues that may cost him his marriage but he is willing to do the work to get Thea back. Adams carefully balances Gavin’s issues with Thea’s childhood baggage making them both the cause of their marital strife and making both of them have to work on their issues to find a HEA. Their resolution is sweet and the path of their relationship to get there is believable. However, the best part of the book is the motley crew of successful men in Nashville who have come together to read romance books try to learn love lessons through romance books which they refer to as “manuals”. Their meetings and the tidbits they take out of the books add humor to the book that separates it from other adult romance. The Bromance Book Club is an enjoyable story with humor and romance that was just fun to read and I will happily keep reading this series.
Final Rating: 4 out of 5
