Title: The Bromance Book Club
Author: Lyssa Kay Adams
Series info: Book 1 of Bromance Book Club series, but can be read as standalone.
This book has been on my TBR for a LONG time. I’ve seen it around in reviews and social media for a long time, but I somehow just didn’t want to pick it up?? No clue why. But that’s how my mood works.
My mood finally acquiesced last week and allowed me to pick it up. And I LOVE it.
Gavin Scott wins in the baseball field but he’s been losing at home. With his marriage in trouble, and the reveal of an embarrassing secret, he HAS to pull things together ASAP.
Looking at him drowning himself in alcohol and tears, Gavin’s teammates decide to help him out with some advice. And this advice comes in the form of romance book recommendations.
Gavin starts to read these romance books that are “cringey books just for women” with reluctance and doubt. But he quickly starts to realize just why women like it so much. They’re books by women, for women, depicting how women like to be treated.
Soon, Gavin turns to these books to help him win back his wife and save his marriage.
I LOVED THIS BOOK.
Let’s talk about this in a list because I need SOME structure to my review.
- The concept itself.
Where men read romance books and realize that they’re not just trashy novels with cringey stories. This book shows men ACTUALLY READING these romance books, realizing why women love them, and learning from them.
It was great to read about. I now want to make my future partner read at least one romance book. They’re so much more than their image.
- The characters.
They’re so nice *cries*
They’re flawed, strong, and real. I love them.
Character growth is also really nice. I give it 12/10.
- The romance.
Considering that the characters are married, it is a second chance romance.
Gavin and Thea got married too soon because of an unplanned pregnancy. They were in love but they didn’t spend enough time dating and getting to know each other. It has affected their relationship in the long run.
This second chance romance was so sweet and nice. I loved reading about it.
- All. The. Relationships.
The friendships and other familial relationships depicted here were so nice. I especially loved the sisterly relationship between Thea and Olivia. Sisters forever ❤
- The overall plot.
It was very entertaining. I was totally engaged.
This book was supposed to be a quick read as a break before I do other things but I ended up reading all of it in one sitting. I did NOT realize the time!
Loved it. Totally recommend it.
If you’re looking for a romance book that’s doing things a little different than others, pick this one up! You will not regret it.
I rate this book..
What’s the last book that you REALLY enjoyed?
