BOOK REVIEW: The Bromance Book Club
by Lyssa Kay Adams
ABOUT THE BOOKS (from Amazon):
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 tried listening to The Bromance Book Club audiobook a few months ago and for some reason just couldn’t get into it. Someone on TikTok had recommended, so I wanted to give it another try. The second time around went better. I think I just needed to focus more in the beginning to understand the characters and what was going on.
The premise of this book is so cute. The main couple is struggling in their marriage, experiencing some intimacy issues after having their two daughters. In an effort to help the husband, Gavin, his friends invite them to their book club, which takes him by surprise. They think reading is going to solve his problem? And what’s even more surprising is that the guys are reading romance books in order to better understand what it is that their wives want from them.
Gavin thinks this is a crazy idea at first, but then changes his mind quickly when he tries saying something to his wife that the main character in the book says—and it works. Maybe this wasn’t so silly after all! So he tries another line and another…until eventually he gets busted.
The story is cute and funny. It’s a nice light-hearted rom com.
