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.

The Bromance Book Club was a fun and sexy book that was an absolute delight to read!

This contemporary romance has a unique spin. I’ve read other romance novels from the male perspective, but this has a more bookish take. Gavin and Thea’s marriage is in trouble, and Gavin’s friends bring him into their book club where they read romance novels to understand more about the women they love. The book they give Gavin not only has excerpts throughout but also provides a nice parallel to his and Thea’s story, adding even more bookishness (which I personally love).

Well written and witty, The Bromance Book Club sucked me in and wouldn’t let me put it down. I raced through it in two nights and couldn’t stop thinking about it in between. The plot is fairly basic but well executed. The main characters are the kind you can really root for – each grow at their own pace and the relationship has chemistry and depth. 

It’s been a while since I’ve read a good romance and The Bromance Book Club was the right book at the right time for me! This won’t be for everyone but I’m sure fans of the genre will enjoy it. And anyone looking to try romance might pick this up as a starting point.
