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.
Gavin Scott’s marriage is in trouble. He’s one of the star athletes on the Nashville baseball team, and now his wife, Thea, is asking for a divorce after he walked out during a fight. His friends on the team invite him to the Bromance Book Club, to learn how to get his wife back. They read romance novels to figure out what their wives want. The men in the book club guide Gavin on how to get his wife back, using a regency romance novel.
The Bromance Book Club is such a fun premise for a novel! Since romance novels are usually written for women, they show exactly what women want in a romance. The men in this story have figured out that romance novels are the key to figuring out what women want.
Since Gavin was studying romance novels and how he could use them to get Thea back, the men had to break down how the plot develops in the romance novel. When Gavin got stuck, they pointed out that he needed to figure out Thea’s backstory or past. I loved the way this described how romance novels are plotted, while also creating a romance between Gavin and Thea. This was a clever way to break down the parts of a romance novel within the story.
This was such a great story! I’m so excited to read the rest of this series!
