The Bromance Book Club
The Bromance Book Club | Lyssa Kay Adams
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.

This is my first official Litsy post so go easy on me here...😉 The Bromance Book Club was my 2nd book of 2020 and a perfect light and fluffy book to ease into a new year. Great premise. Can‘t wait to read the second one!

It's cool that this is a romance about a married couple who nearly give up on each other but find their way back to HEA. I found myself annoyed at various points and wanting to skim ahead, which just doesn't work in an audiobook. In print I probably would have gotten through this much faster but I mostly enjoyed it. Especially the family moments. I definitely enjoyed spending part of today #audiostitching. It's been quite a while. 🧵

ljuliel Whatcha making ? Is that cross stitch or plastic canvas ? It‘d make a cute book tote pattern. 6d
bookandbedandtea @ljuliel It's cross stitch on regular white aida. I love your idea of a book tote. I just may do that when I decide this is finished. 6d
ljuliel It‘d make a beautiful tote. Might need to line it with another fabric if you decide to go that route, depending on how big you make it. I‘d be afraid the weight of your books would stretch the Aida out and make holes. Maybe something solid like flannel, that‘s a little thicker ? It‘d be a pretty tote. 6d

This was touching. I liked reading a romance about an established couple trying to work on their marriage. Yeah, it‘s tidy (HEAs are like that), but I didn‘t mind it, given the genre—if it was lit fiction, I would have expected some nod towards the real work of saving relationships. But 100% worth reading. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Romance about rekindling of marriage that focused too much on sex issues and not enough on relationship issues.

Overall I liked it, but had a few issues. It's been awhile since I read a good second chance romance, Gavin and Thea's was excellent. I didn't care for the extra thing at the end. I know it led to something else that was needed I just didn't care for how they got there.

I was so worried that this one wouldn‘t live up to the hype because I adore the premise of a group of men reading romance novels in an effort to learn how to improve their relationships. Lucky for me the book delivered. It is funny, sweet, and had me rooting for Gavin, Thea and their marriage. Great book to kick off the decade with.

Didn‘t know what to expect. Turns out there‘s Gavin, the book that Gavin‘s reading, and Thea. I liked Gavin‘s story best, could have skipped the book within a book, and liked Thea well enough, though most of all at the award dinner where she defended Gavin‘s stutter. Overall, a good story about a couple who‘ve drifted apart, separate, but do their best to figure things out before it‘s too late. Gavin‘s friends were a fun, supportive addition.

Gavin and Thea's marriage is on the brink of disaster and his baseball teammates pull him into a secret club that uses romance novels to understand and romance their wives. It could have been hokey but instead I found this author to have incredible comic timing (including writing a very realistic deteriorating sex scene between married people who are upset with each other.) ⤵️

ReadingEnvy This might be the romance novel I assign to my reading class because it's a regency inside a contemporary, with men who have something to learn (and help each other to learn it!) #romantsy 4w

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Gavin‘s “bro” friends, members of a secret book club, convince him that reading romance novels will help save his suffering marriage. This is a cute and clever premise. I liked the characters and I‘m happy to see that book 2, due out in spring, will focus on Mack and Liv.

The open door scenes were steamy, but why do authors use such cheesy, awkward terminology? It‘s not sexy. I feel like this is common, idk. Maybe it‘s me?

This was so much my jam. I mean it's really fun. Gavin is a great hero - he knows he's messed up, he doesn't know how to fix it. Thea is an attractive heroine - you understand why she reacts the way that she does and why she feels so strongly.

The only thing that I didn't like was the resolution to the bedroom side of the story.  Nothing really changes really in *what* they're doing in the bedroom - so there‘s no reason for it to be fixed iykwim.

♥️♥️♥️♥️Amazing!♥️♥️♥️♥️ I enjoyed hanging out with the guys in the Bromance Book Club so much! 😁 I am so happy that Ms. Adams built a whole series around them. Thea, Gavin, and their girls were lovely. One flaw: Liv. Even though she kind of redeemed herself in the end, I'm still reluctant to read her story, which is next in the series. I probably will because I love Mack and I respect the Bromance. 🙌

For those of you that follow me, you will know romance novels are not something I read on a regular basis. However, I was looking for something light to read and had been hearing a lot of good things about this one. This was exactly what I was needing and it really hit the spot.

For my full review, please visit my blog at: http://obsessedbookaholic.com/2019/11/20/the-bromance-book-club-book-review/

ljuliel I get where you‘re coming from. I also don‘t read romance , but lately, I‘ve been searching for books that are a bit less taxing .. sometimes in life, we need a bit of a vacation from seriousness and worries , so it‘s nice to take a break from it. 2mo
Deifio I read paranormal romance exactly for that reason! My usual genre is fantasy so paranormal romance fits in with that 2mo

Open-Door Romance.
I enjoyed that it revolved around a married couple fighting for their marriage instead of a new relationship. This book would make for a great rom-com film with the quirky Bromance Book Club member's and Thea's back story and Gavin's stutter. The interwoven story of the Earl and his wife was fun and having the Earl become Gavin's inner conscience a unique spin on how books can dictate our day to day lives.

Loved! I always enjoy romance novels when the characters have real issues keeping them apart, not just silly misunderstandings. This was a refreshing twist on the “marriage of convenience” trope... the main couple have already been married for years before he woos her! And the commentary on romance novels was excellent. I‘d love to see this on scene, but instead I‘ll just eagerly await the next book in the series! #romantsy

Down right adorable, I loved this and I loved Mack the most. Mack is my favorite character and I believe everyone should have a friend like him. Gavin and his wife‘s story was good and I loved it, but I looked forward more to the wit between Mack and Gavin. This book is a cute romance about a man swooning is wife all over again after learning she fakes it. This book is a cute telling of a man learning about women through romance books.

3.5/5⭐️

I really wanted to like this one more than I did.

The premise is such a cute, original idea and had the potential to be both hilarious and heartwarming. A MLB player, married for 3 years with twins, discovers that his wife has been keeping a big secret from him (I won‘t give it away) and suddenly his seemingly “perfect” life is upended. She kicks him out, he wants her back. Enter his teammates, who introduce him into the ⬇️⬇️

robinb Bromance Book Club, their romance book club dedicated to helping them navigate their love lives by gleaning advice/wisdom from fictional books.

While it has its moments of hilarity and heart tugs, I just didn‘t connect well with the H/h and felt parts were a bit cheesy and more along the lines of an outrageous rom-com movie script. Both characters had some emotional baggage that I felt was hurried through and wrapped up a bit too easily. ⬇️⬇️

This is a super sweet, fun romance. Gavin and Thea's marriage is in trouble and he's willing to go to any length to save it, including joining a romance book club. I liked the different perspective of this book, about repairing a relationship instead of building a new relationship. The book was really sweet, and I enjoyed the historical romance chapters interspersed throughout.

This book had so much potential! The premise of an all-male athlete secret book club reading romance novels and helping each other with their relationships is so fun but the execution was blah. None of the characters, not even our leads, ever felt like more than a caricature and I found the dialogue super unrealistic to the point of taking me out of the story.

I‘ve recommended it to everyone and I‘m hoping there‘s a second book featuring the other two. Also, I‘m living this trend of baseball players as romantic leads!
