I have powered through all of The Bromance Book Club books in about three days. Seriously obsessed. They have been hilarious, entertaining, and heart warming! But I have to say that Crazy Stupid Bromance is my favorite one by far. Talk about a book that legitimately made me tear up. Keep reading this book review to read my full thoughts!
Alexis Carlisle and her cat café, ToeBeans, have shot to fame after she came forward as a victim of a celebrity chef’s sexual harassment. When a new customer approaches to confide in her, the last thing Alexis expects is for the woman to claim they’re sisters. Unsure what to do, Alexis turns to the only man she trusts—her best friend, Noah Logan.
Computer genius Noah left his rebellious teenage hacker past behind to become a computer security expert. Now he only uses his old skills for the right cause. But Noah’s got a secret: He’s madly in love with Alexis. When she asks for his help, he wonders if the timing will ever be right to confess his crush.
Noah’s pals in The Bromance Book Club are more than willing to share their beloved “manuals” to help him go from bud to boyfriend. But he must decide if telling the truth is worth risking the best friendship he’s ever had.
Crazy Stupid Bromance was the perfect holiday read for me. I have read each of these back to back and fallen heads over heels in love with them. I really enjoyed The Bromance Book Club and Undercover Bromance, but this is my favorite. I knew from the start Noah and Alexis were going to be my favorites. Crazy Stupid Bromance is a story about realizing when to fight battles. About when to let go of anger and to attempt forgiveness. Alexis has got to be my favorite heroine as she was my favorite side character from the previous book.
She embodies this power of reclaiming one’s voice and body. Of fighting against not only the sexism from perpetrators, but also from a society that allows their actions to go unpunished. That let their sexism leak into the world in insidious ways. The tension between Noah and Alexis was steamy and I love the friends to lovers trope! Noah was also incredibly relatable in the way he has held on to anger and allowed it to control his action.
Additionally, I loved the way Crazy Stupid Bromance really delves into destabilizing toxic masculinity. It felt fabulous to read a romance novel where all these things men hear and say are being challenged. The latest in The Bromance Club made me cry and then I knew that it would be a five star rating from me. I cannot recommend this series more highly and this one in particular is a hands down favorite.
