THE BROMANCE BOOK CLUB by Lyssa Kay Adams
Publication Date: November 5, 2019
Genre: Romantic Comedy
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.
I enjoyed this book and the link to men reading romance novels to fix relationships. Gavin and his friends were fun, and I’m glad there wasn’t a load of sports-talk to muddy up the story. I only wished that I liked Thea and understood why he wanted her back. She blamed him for everything, when she was as much…if not more at fault. There were times that I was ready to stop reading because I disliked her so much and thought he could do better. But all’s well that ends well, I guess. She slowly grew on me. The book club, the men, and Gavin’s fumbling through the romance novel lessons, kept me smiling even after the book was over. I’m excited about the next series installment this spring.

LYSSA KAY ADAMS read her first romance novel in eighth grade after swiping one from her grandmother’s book shelf and was hooked forever. After a nearly 20-year career as a journalist, her dreams of writing and publishing her own HEAs came true in 2015 with the release of her first novel, Seventh Inning Heat, followed by the RITA-nominated novella, Wild in Rio. Today, she 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).
