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.

Why did I add The Bromance Book Club  to my bookshelf?

I bought this book during a trip to a local bookstore back in December 2019. I had seen a lot of really positive reviews for the book from fellow bloggers and wanted to experience it for myself. But I brought it home and put it on my shelf where it has stayed. I tend to read this kind of book pretty quickly so you would think that I would have found the time for it by now. I did notice that the audiobook is available at my local library so I may end up picking that up since I tend to get to audiobooks a little quicker.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it to others?

  1. I wasn’t a huge fan of this one (the female lead and her sister ruined it for me) but I am very much in the minority. Everyone else seems to love this one… and the other books in the series.

  2. I really enjoyed it. I did have to adjust because it was more serious than I anticipated from the cover and the blurb, but that said, the gent’s book club group is a hoot.

  3. Carole, I think you would enjoy this book. I am fan of the series. The guys club is the best part for me.

  4. I get to audio books faster too and this looks like one that would be great on audio. I remember when this came out and it does sound good.
