“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.” (Goodreads)
I’ve been looking forward to reading this one since I saw so many positive reviews. Besides, how can I not read a book about a book club for men who read romance novels? Curiosity made me do it and it didn’t disappoint!
One reason I wanted to read this, besides for the book club, was because it had a married couple. It’s not often I read a book with one as the main characters. The relationship between Gavin and Thea is raw and heartfelt. It’s about second chances and falling in love all over again. I think that this book brings up a lot of good points about communication and keeping that flame alive. I loved reading about each of their point-of-views.
Gavin also has a stutter. I have only read one other book with this and just like that one, it was nicely done. It didn’t take away from who he was and his wife loved him regardless and it was just precious!
The one character that really stole the show every time he was mentioned was Mack. He is hilarious! I am so glad that he will be the star of the next book because I definitely need more of him!
The plot really matched up well with the synopsis and even though there wasn’t a lot of the book club it was still enough. I also enjoyed that some of the chapters were from the book that the book club told him to read. You got to see first hand where he was getting his advice and it just tied it all in nicely. It was bit too steamy for me but like usual, I skip those parts ha, and it doesn’t take away from the overall book for me.
Overall, this was a super cute and heartfelt read. I can’t wait to read the next book and see how the Bromance Book Club is doing!
