Series: Bromance Book Club #1
“The Bromance Book Club did such a great job of delivering a novel that was both a lot of fun to read and yet delved below the surface to bring a love story that felt truly satisfying.”
~ Under the Covers
Gavin Scott may be killing it on the baseball field but, his marriage is in serious trouble. He found out his wife Thea’s, big secret; she’s been faking orgasms. Pride wounded, their already strained marriage crumbles. When Thea asks for a divorce he is willing to take any measure to get his girls, both Thea and his twin girls, back into his life. Enter the secret alpha male-only romance book club. Inducted in, he is told their secret regarding how to keep their partners happy; romance novels.
Oh my! I knew as soon as I read the blurb – and the official one is way better than the one I hashed together – that I had to pick up this book. And I was right, this is one of my favourite reads of the year, I devoured it in one sitting. It’s romantic comedy with a lot of heart that pays great respect to the power of the romance novel.
Can a romance novel solve everything? Of course not. But I loved the way the historical romance novel that Gavin was reading was used to demonstrate not only to the reader but to Gavin himself the issues that were occurring in the marriage. Problems that went beyond faked orgasms. The Bromance Book Club did such a great job of delivering a novel that was both a lot of fun to read and yet delved below the surface to bring a love story that felt truly satisfying.
The real star of this show though? The bromance book club itself and its members. I love the concept of a bunch of powerful alpha males secretly gathering to read romance novels in an effort to keep their relationships healthy, and to help a fella out when needed. It was hilarious and I can’t wait to hear more from these guys…especially Mack. The only single guy in the group and an absolute pain in the butt.
This is my first Lyssa Kay Adams book but I definitely need to start reading her work, this was a fabulous read. If you’re going to pick up one romantic comedy this year, you need to make sure it is this one.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
