Divorce, And Gavin Realizes He S Let His Pride And Fear Get The Better Of Him Welcome To The Bromance Book ClubDistraught And Desperate, Gavin Finds Help From An Unlikely 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 Than Flowery Words And Grand Gestures For This Hapless Romeo To Find His Inner Hero And Win Back The Trust Of His Wife 2.5 starsA light hearted second chance sports romance, which sadly didn t really deliver I seem to be in the minority here, but I didn t love this I thought I would, as it s a sports romance, and is a story about a couple staying together, getting a second chance It even has a men s book club supporting each other, helping each other to understand their partners It was an original concept I liked that it was about men in a secret book club, trying to understand and connect with their partners and wives I liked that it was a quick read I liked that it was a story about a couple staying together, I don t see that much I liked that it was quite steamy The second half of the book was quite cute Unfortunately, there was also a lot that I didn t like I have to start with the female main character, Thea She was unreasonable, irritating and a liar The woman faked her orgasms for over three years, and it wasn t the only thing she was faking What was the point in that She didn t get what she wanted, and her husband thought he was doing all the right things, so carried on doing them I ve never understood women who do that You should be able to be honest with your husband, and communicate your needs But that s the crux of this story This couple aren t honest with each other about anything They don t talk to each other How was Gavin to know that she was unsatisfied, she acted, and lied about it I m not just talking about in the bedroom She didn t like the life of a WAG, she wanted a different life, wanted different things, but expected him to know all of this Did she tell him any of this NOOOO He was not a mind reader Another thing that bothered me was that Thea accepted no responsibility for the breakdown in her marriage Gavin was in the wrong, and she was in the right, and my goodness the book hammered that home to me I actually ended up hating her, and feeling sorry for Gavin She even kicked him out the house, and then was mad when he left It was a test, and he wasn t supposed to leave Like She Asked Him To So of course he failed that, and then she asked him for a divorce Poor Gavin actually hadn t done much wrong Yes he wasn t as attentive as he should be, but with young twins, and a busy career, these things happen He also wasn t that sexually experienced, so didn t always hit the spot with Thea, but she could have helped him out there There are two people in a marriage, and Thea could have voiced her wants and needs, and they could have worked on their marriage together He really loved her and his kids Thea also compared all men to her absent, philandering father Yes we get it, your father was an arsehole, but you can t judge everyone by his standards, you have to have a little faith and trust I actually think she needed some counselling, to move past her unhappy childhood, and perhaps they could have had some couples counselling Gavin spent the whole book trying to win her back, and she shot him down over and over By the end of the book, Thea realised these things and her character does grow, but by that point, at about 80% it was too little, too late for me I just couldn t stand her Other things that bothered me was the unsubtle feminism The men in the book club, turning to regency romance novels to help them with their love lives, was just pure fantasy And all of the unrealistic things that came out with..like talking about toxic masculinity It felt preachy and overly political to me I keep reading romance books with all of these woke men in, and it just makes me roll my eyes You can have male characters who are feminists, and all round decent guys, without shoving it down my throat The chapters from the regency romance which Gavin was reading also felt unnecessary to me They were overly cheesy, and made me cringe Then there was the fact that Gavin actually used the actual lines and moves from the book he was reading Word for word It was really manipulative and Thea was angry about it, but got over it I would have been furious to find that out That the lovely, sweet things my husband was saying were straight out of a book, and not his real feelings I didn t like Thea s sister either She was such a jealous, interfering bitch She was the one who encouraged Thea to throw Gavin out, and every time they made any progress, there she was trying to undo it One final thing that bothered me was the twins They were about 2 2 1 2 years old, yet were written as if they were 4 5 years old I know it s a minor thing, but it really irritated me how they didn t act like toddlers To sum up, I felt that this story was too light hearted for the serious topic it covered And the couple would have avoided all of the hassle and heartbreak if they had actually just talked to each other like mature adults Urgh I hate the miscommunication trope It might work in YA, but it really irritates me in adult fiction JUST TALK TO EACH OTHER DAMNIT Many thanks to Berkley and edelweiss for the chance to download an e arc in exchange for an honest review Second chance romance and a book club for guys who are trying to repair their relationships by reading romance novels that alone made me read this book why did I put this gif here idek Famous baseball player Gavin Scott, has screwed up his marriage He let his pride and fear push away the love of his life When his wife asks for a divorce, Gavin knows he won t give up and needs help to win her heart and trust back And so that s where the Bromance book club comes in A group of men, who have all found themselves in the same situation as Gavin, read romance novels to better understand women and to improve their relationships Gavin returned to his chair You guys read romance novels We call them manuals, the Russian saidI loved this unique plot I mean, just from the premise I knew I d enjoy this one but I didn t expect it to be this awesome It being a second chance romance I knew it would be heartbreaking and sad, so the book club added a great layer of humour and fun I liked that we got POV from both Gavin and his wife, Thea We get to view the situation from both sides and I appreciated that The book club was honestly the best Those parts had me laughing and aw ing because of how serious these men were to better themselves and help one another In my experience, the relationship in contemporary romance of an already married couple especially one already with kids is hardly explored It was so refreshing to read about Another unique thing about the plot was that Gavin has a stutter and it s not often I read about speech problems in books especially when it s the male MC So props to Lyssa Kay Adams for that The writing and pacing was A I finished this in one day and was left wanting Thank goodness there is already a sequel planned because I really need from the Bromance Book ClubQuote might change after publication ARC provided by publishers via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewPublishing date 5 November 2019 Might be of a 3.5 but I m rounding up because this was a lot of fun I can t lie and say that it wasn t a smidge pander y and contrived at some parts, but overall this was a really fun ride and I definitely recommend checking it out if you re interested in reading a romance about a couple staying together rather than getting together I 10000% will be carrying on with the series Not exactly a debut novel, but definitely a new, and fresh take on a second chance romance A unique story with an engaging plot, The Bromance Book Club was a solid performance by the author.Who doesn t like a second chance love story Especially if the couple is married, with kids and the husband is fighting for another chance I really have been enjoying this trope lately A romance about a married couple adds another layer to a second chance story Clearly there is on the line, including family and kids And the twist of all things the big O really made this book a hell of a fresh take on romance, and a very relatable too I ve never seen an author pick up this storyline and I can only compliment her for doing so.Overall there is so much to say about Gavin I loved Gavin s unwillingness to give up, to fight for his marriage and family, even if the way he went about was outside of his comfort zone And he wasn t always the best student either, but he clearly cared about the outcome, so I forgive him for any mishaps because there were a couple Also he was a bit clueless, especially in bed, which was a bit worrying But it helped that there was without any doubt still feelings between the couple It just took time to peel away all the hurt feelings on both sides, and to get to the matter at hand the big O, or in this instance the missing of an O.Thea was maybe not an outstanding, or incredibly unique heroine, but she was trying I wouldn t say that I connected with her overly much, but I also didn t dislike her Let s just say that there weren t any deep feelings on my part either way.Besides it being a tender and heartwarming story, the bookclub part was hilarious.I wish guys would start a romance book club, and of course I would want to be the fly on the wall because it would be entertaining as hell.Although some predictability throughout the book prevents me from giving it a higher rating, all in all, from written style to plotting this novel should be on everyone s reading list.I hope a certain overly charming athlete, Mack, is getting a book next, because he was hilarious And he was definitely my favorite supporting character in this book.ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review.For book recommendations, follow me on Instagram
