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.
Gavin Scott is a spectacular baseball player. It’s being an equally great husband that he could use some lessons in.
When his marriage takes a header because of trouble in the bedroom, his friends come together to initiate him into a secret book club. It’s a place where they drop all the societal norms at the door and use romance novels as a guide to make their relationships better. And they are on a mission to help Gavin get his wife back.
“Good. First rule of book club?”
Thea Scott is used to people walking out on her. It happened with her father and now history is repeating itself once again with her husband.
Maybe it's because she never felt like she fit in with the other WAGs because she wanted to have something that was just for her – apart from just being a wife and mother. Or maybe the reason goes far deeper.
Finding herself means finding her way back to Gavin. Because this time, love really is strong enough.
“Son,” Malcolm asked, as if he weren’t only a year older than Gavin, “what do you know about the G-spot?”
The Bromance Club is not only laugh-out-loud funny, it’s also surprisingly relevant. Lyssa Kay Adams addresses what it really means to really be “masculine” in the modern world with quick wit and with understanding. She does it in such a subtle way that her characters instantly become more real – more relatable.
I found my respect for Thea, for Gavin and for every member of the Book Club growing with every page. Their ability to overcome long-held hurts and fight for something as elusive as love gives me hope for the future. And that's no small feat!
Oh and even after all of that, this book still has the power to leave you with an epic Book Boner...
