    A Rom Com book from a man’s perspective! Brilliant! Gather around ladies (and gentlemen)! You are going to love this!A love story. Gavin and Thea have hit an impasse in their marriage!

    Might be more of a 3.5 but I'm rounding up because this was a lot of fun! I can't lie and say that it wasn't a smidge pander-y and contrived at some parts, but overall this was a really fun ride and I definitely recommend checking it out if you're interested in reading a romance about a couple staying together rather than getting together. I 10000% will be carrying on with the series!

    4.5 starsWhen I went into this book, I was crossing my fingers that the execution of it and the writing style matched how great the synopsis was. I'm so glad the book held up to how good it sounds, and it's definitely a memorable romance I'll be recommending!My primary concern about this book was that since it's about a married couple with kids, I wouldn't be able to relate to it or enjoy it since they're several years ahead of me on the maturity...

    4.5 starsDude! The Bromance Book Club is everything you have heard it is - fun, sexy, heartwarming and addictive. I didn't want to put this book down! This is Rom-Com done right! A book from the male perspective!Sometimes love isn't enough. Especially when you find out your wife has been faking the big "O" and you flip out which gets you kicked out, so you walk out, and decide you want back in, but she is not having that. Whew! What's a guy to do...

    The Bromance Book Club is adorable, sweet, and sexy, giving a new twist to the rom-com. This one was definitely lots of fun!Gavin Scott should be on top of the world. He’s a star for the Nashville Legends, a Major League Baseball team, he’s playing really well, and he has a beautiful wife and adorable twin daughters. But things between him and his wife, Thea, haven’t been good for a while, and she just kicked him out of the house, saying s...

    “Book Boner.”Introducing: my new favourite bookish phrase!This book was the one! My emotional state is in a frenzy right now. THIS WAS SO GOOD!!!All you need to know is that it’s a book-club starring all dudes, who read romance novels to help them understand the women in their lives better. The relationship these men had between them was so awesome and full of humour and support! It was such a great bromance! The story was adorable, it was ...

    Many thanks to Berkley and Edelweiss+ for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review Gavin had called this little proposition a competition. No, this wasn't a competition. This. Was. War. This is one of those rare displays of love at first page. I was barely five minutes into the audio book when I thought to myself, Yup, this one’s a keeper. And when the final seconds played, my heart ached because the definition of bittersweet is fin...

    4.5 starsThis book is so stinking cute!!!!!!! I wasn't expecting to like this one as much as I did because I'm not usually a fan of second chance romance, but this book was everything. It follows a baseball player Gavin Scott who is having problems in his marriage and him and his wife are on the brink of divorce, so he joins the "Bromance Book Club" which consists of Nashville's 'top alpha men' and they read romance novels in order to understand ...

    2.5 starsA light hearted second chance sports romance, which sadly didn’t really deliver I seem to be in the minority here, but I didn’t love this. I thought I would, as it’s a sports romance, and is a story about a couple staying together, getting a second chance. It even has a men’s book club supporting each other, helping each other to understand their partners more!It was an original concept! I liked that it was about men in a secret...

    Hero gets love advice from bro’s and books.I didn’t really know what to expect from this book. I knew it was a romantic comedy because of the premise, But I wasn’t sure if the story would be any good aside from the inherent hilarity of a bunch of guys reading and talking about romance novels. To tell the truth, that premise did lead to a few laugh out loud one liners and quotable sections of the book. The storyline was good as well.This was...

    The first rule of book club:You don't talk about book club. Lyssa Kay Adams has hit a homerun with this fun and clever story. This was a second chance romance with a unique angle. A married couple on the brink of divorce trying to heal (well at least Gavin was). Gavin is a big-time professional baseball player who is hitting grand slams on the field and striking out in the bedroom. After the game of his life Gavin discovers that his wife of thre...
  • chan ☆
    this was pretty damn good, even for a trad published romance ;) the premise of the book is that this MLB player has "lost" his wife in a sense... and the fact that he's never given her an orgasm is a big part of that. other guys on his team apparently has suffered similarly so they've formed a book club to read romances to learn how to reconnect with their wives/gf/whatever and COMMUNICATE.i'll start by saying that i typically do not like second ...

    Not exactly a debut novel, but definitely a new, and fresh take on a second chance romance. A unique story with an engaging plot, The Bromance Book Club was a solid performance by the author.Who doesn't like a second chance love story. Especially if the couple is married, with kids and the husband is fighting for another chance. I really have been enjoying this trope lately. A romance about a married couple adds another layer to a second chance s...

    Heart-warming... It's great to know, or rather have a bookish confirmation of something I have always believed in, there are good men out there, who care about their families, wives and children, to the extent of doing whatever it takes to make their marriage work. Even if it is reading a Regency romance book.I absolutely adored the characters in this sweet rom-com. Gavin is a professional baseball player who spends a lot of time travelling for w...

He recently discovered that his wife Thea has faked having orgasms with him, all but one, and he didn’t handle it well.

    I didn't want this one to end! Did I just say that? Super hot diggity dang! That was a Grand Slam for me and left me cheering and dancing after reading this one. I am always a bit nervous starting romance/women fiction books because I have a heart of stone and my eyes can get a little workout with the rolling when I read some. They can be a hit or miss for me. Lyssa Kay Adams knocked it out of the park here for me. Maybe that heart of mine is sof...
  • Shelby *trains flying monkeys*
    I been blabbing to everyone about this book. Major league baseball guy Gavin Scott is about to lose his marriage to Thea. He is devastated and doesn't want the divorce. So his macho guy friends come to the rescue. In one of the most inventive ways that I've seen in a book. Don't talk about book club though. What happens in book club stays in book club. Lord Whatever His Name Was will come to the rescue as Gavin's studies the Regency romance that ...

    I’m buying ten copies of this book and giving it to all of the idiot men in my life for Christmas.Subtle? Nope. Fucks given about that: zero. “Look, man. Men are idiots. We complain that women are so mysterious and shit, and we never know what they want. We fuck up our relationships because we convince ourselves that it’s too hard to figure them out. But the real problem is with us. We think we’re not supposed to feel things and cry and e...

    update: after reading a really shit romance book immediately after this, i’ve realised it was an absolute gem and deserved a higher rating. that’s all. Just like the bar for heterosexual men treating their wives with respect, my standards for romance books are low. However, I do think this is an exceptional, hilariously sweet rom-com with subtle feminism embedded within the plot. In my opinion, it's a stand-out in its genre. You'll love this ...

    A romance about a baseball player joining a romance book club to win his wife back!? Where has this book been all my life???Ever since I heard the synopsis of this book, I knew that I had to read it. As soon as I started this book and watched Thea ask Gavin for a divorce, my heart broke for the couple. I really enjoyed how neither character was villainized and how they were both at fault for the fall of their marriage. Both of them had to change ...

    Just when you think that a genre can’t surprise you, a book about an all men book club that read romance and help each other with their relationships comes along and bang! Knocks your socks right off. “You guys read romance novels?”“We call them manuals,” the Russian said.“And it’s a lot more than just reading,” Malcolm said.I was going to start this review pointing out my favourite thing about this book, but quite frankly, I can...

    "The first rule of book club:You don't talk about book club."I read the synopsis to this book and thought it sounded super fun, but thought that it would probably make me cringe easily or evoke a lot of eye rolling (It seems like a good majority of Romance novels are like this). However, I didn't find this book to be like that at all. I loved it... and I'm still in love with these types of drawn, bright book covers!! It was funny, steamy, and hea...
