Parts of this were highly relatable, and it was so refreshing to read a book about a married couple working on some real issues. It didn't feel overly angsty, the issues ...more

Okay, when I saw the summary for this book, I thought I really needed to read it. I loved the premise of it so much. Dudes forming a book club to read romance books to help them improve their relationships and understand women better? Sign me up!
I liked this book a lot, and whipped through it in a couple of days because I just needed to know what was going to happen between Gavin and Thea. There was a need for me to know if t ...more

Things I liked
I love, love, love the book. It’s a brilliant story and it fully restores my faith that I will find my perfect match someday. I love the idea that real men will read romance books and that they ...more
Reading Gavin and Thea's story was a fun way to spend an afternoon. I love a romance that makes me laugh out loud and this one did that. There was a light-hearted slapstick element to the imagery and interactions between characters that I enjoyed. There was also just enough personal vulnerability and introspection that both ...more
Maybe I'm a spoiled brat (what with rockstars like K.J. Charles who perfectly weaves social and cultural commentary into romantic and sexy as hell settings, or Robinne Lee with her masterpiece The Idea of You, or Alexis Hall with his fucking brilliant novels that discuss gender and sexuality and mental health in breathtaking ways, or Roan Parrish with her fiercely feminist books, or Talia Hibbert ...more

I received an eARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
Such a funny and thought-provoking romance as Gavin and Thea find their way back to one another and their marriage.
Gavin has a complete melt-down when he's faced with the reality of his wife asking for a divorce and the realization that she's never had the big "O" with him. His "bros" (fellow teammates on a p ...more
First of all, I am super confused about their two children. I'm relatively sure based on the timeline in the book that they got married 3 years ago and she was pregnant at the time. Which would make the twins MAYBE 2.5 years old. But they go to school? 2.5 year olds don't go to school. I mean, even pre-school, you generally have to be at least 3 and potty trained and these girls are definitely not 3. Although their vocabularies are probably of 4 year olds. SO ...more
I found it refreshing that the hero has a stutter, and some of the insecurities that come with being "different"–I don't often see this in the wealthy sports star MC. It made it easy to root for Gavin as ...more
This would have benefited from another 100 pages, but it was pretty good. Like a lot of other romance novels, once the characters recognized what the underlying problem was, * ...more
I'm happy to say that The Bromance Book Club delivers on the promise of a great read all the way through. The conflict doesn't dissipate, the characters don't cave, and Adams continues to delive ...more
There was something very endearing about Gavin's stutter. My heart melted for him and Thea. This was a little too tough and unforgiving of Gavin and the whole situation. I felt at first that I might not like her and then once I got the backstory I understood. Her sister definitely didn't help the situation either ...more

This can be really cute or very cringey. And I don't know if I will explain my hesitation very well.
Dudes thinking that reading or saving your marriage by trying to understand your spouse isnt something what real men do, always get a side eye from me.
So if a premise is based on a secret book club because reading isn't for manly men. Eh.
I do want to read more about men supporting each other doing what isn't supposed to be 'manly'. Hopefully this story will fall in that category ...more
Oh boy this book broke me. 😭 It was super emotional but I loved every (sometimes angsty) minute of it & I anticipated the HEA! 😍
It's a book about flaws, it's a book about (miss-)communication, it's a book about forgiveness & learning things about yourself.
I admit I had hard time understanding the heroine's problems but loved the hero & how gentle he was. He was fighting for rescuing his marriage & I loved it. Even if he was sometimes a (careless) do ...more
