Review: The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams

You know when the universe seems to be screaming at you to read a book? And for a while you may resist and think, “okay I’ll get to it”. But for me, I had just one more sign saying I should read it and I was sold. And now i’m obsessively reading the entire series. For me, this was the case with The Bromance Book Club! Read my full review to find out what hooked me about this series!


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 is an entertaining story about opening up our hearts and second chances. Not only do I love the premise of a bromance book club, but I loved that this book talks about marriage. In relationships, we can change into different people. The courses of our lives can alter ourselves in imperceptible ways. Until one day we emerge and feel wholly alien. The Bromance Book Club tackles Thea and Gavin’s marriage – and not recognizing the people they have become. I absolutely love reading more stories about this topic because I think we don’t see it enough in romance novels.

At the same time, I loved Thea – even if I felt like I didn’t get enough of her POV as I wanted. The way she has lost herself in this world and cannot remember when she began to change – that hit close to home for me. Waking up and wondering, “Where did things go so awry?” The Bromance Book Club celebrates the ways fiction can speak to our lives. It can teach us things about ourselves and the relationship we hold dear.

Throughout the book, Adams lays plain the fears we have. The broken and jagged edges in each of us. Sometimes we can become too invested in protecting ourselves that we don’t realize we are pushing those we love away. That we have to be honest with ourselves about our own fears. And figure out if we can move beyond this. To confront what most scares us. I thoroughly enjoyed The Bromance Book Club and before I even finished, I immediately checked out the sequel.

Find The Bromance Book Club on Goodreads, Amazon, Indiebound, & The Book Depository.
