The bromance book club came out in the US last week but it’s not out until next year in the UK.
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
Genre: Romance, Contemporary fiction
BUG rating: 3.5/5
Overall: What I loved about this book was the premise was unusual … a group of Nashville baseball players in a book club, reading classical romances with an aim to help one of them win back his wife. It was an interesting read for sure, and I loved the second chance love story aspect of it, and how it alternated between point of views of wife, Thea and husband, Gavin. I also loved the characters, all of them! I did find the story drawn out in parts, and focused a lot on the same element and quite repetitive. It’s a shame as I had really high hopes for The Bromance Book Club, but it fell a bit short for me. However, that being said, the book club element was hilarious (I wish there had been more!). It’s a great addition to the awesome contemporary books we’ve seen this year – I’d recommend it.
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.
