The first book was great. The second was okay. I'm struggling to finish the third. So I would definitely say it goes downhill.

You could definitely read the first as a standalone. It's a full story. Then the second takes two minor-ish characters from that as the protagonists for the second. Then two minor characters from that are the protagonists for the third. Then one character is the male protagonist for the 4th.(less)

I have pretty “it’s complicated” feelings on this one. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t not like it either. Similarly to the other books I have a lot I love about them but I always have a couple issues too. With this one it wasn’t as in your face as the others with moralizing, but it got a little too corny for my liking at times, that’s just personal preference. I’m a big fan of friends to lovers so that was a plus, but I didn’t like how when we got to the lovers portion there was a solid 50 pages ...more

Yayy!!! My favorite bookish charming wolf pack is back! They are back in town with another funny, swoon, sweet, entertaining journey!

Alexis Carlisle, owner of the cat café, ToeBeans, and longtime friend, Noah, have been circling each other for...pretty much forever.

Alexis shot to fame last year when she added her #metoo voice against a celebrity chef - and since then business has been booming.

Women from all over are coming in to share their stories, join in a safe-space yoga class and so on.

Alexis approaches one particularly forlorn woman and is hit with a surprise of a lifetime. Her dad is dying.

It’s clear from this book that the friends-to-lovers trope is the superior trope.

Lyssa Kay Adams served us in this one. It had everything I was expecting. Humour and tenderness, swoonworthy scenes as well as parts that had me choked up. The day LKA announces the end of this series will be a dark day indeed.

this is a super cute, easy breezy story. its very much consistent with the previous two books of the series, so readers should know exactly what they are gonna get when the pick this up.

i was really excited for a ‘friends to lovers’ story. its one of my fave tropes because it so realistic. and for me, the best part of a friends to lovers story is the buildup, the tension, the chemistry. and so much of that is missing from this story. i wanted to see more of alexis and noah interacting as friend

While I didn't dislike this book, I have to admit that I did find it to be just a smidge underwhelming? I had a pleasant enough time working my way through it, but neither this one nor the previous installment have really lived up to how much I loved the first book and I'm pretty bummed about it, tbh. I will still 100% be reading the next book in the series though because I am SO interested in the character that it is going to follow, so hopefully that one will work better for me!

Welcome to book three of the Bromance series. A successful group of men (including professional athletes and singers to name a few) get together at their own book club to read and discuss romance novels. (Quite a twist from your normal man-cave, right?) The ultimate goal being to keep their relationships with their wives/girlfriends strong and healthy.

The primary focus of this latest addition is on Noah and Alexis. These two have

Let’s hear it for the Best Bromance Book of the Bunch: “Crazy Stupid Bromance!”

This novel is filled with hysterical laughter, friendship, love and lots of swoonworthy moments sure to make you smile.
What makes “Crazy Stupid Bromance” better than its predecessors “The Bromance Book Club” and “Undercover Bromance” is that it feels like real life and is a book you can totally immerse yourself in.

This friends to lovers romance between alexis and noah was absolutely adorable I genuinely loved them together so much and I think the author did a really brillant job of convincing me of the depth of their friendship and their romantic chemistry (even though the friendship portions don't get much page time). This book also improved upon some of the elements that I felt were sorely missed in the second

So, the heroine of this book owns a cat cafe, and it's a friends to lovers romance... I just knew this would be a great read. And it was! I've enjoyed all the 'Bromance Book Club' books and this was no exception. Noah and Alexis story was fantastic.

Alexis is a cafe owner and a sexual assault survivor. She uses her cafe to help other survivors, and though she's worked hard to move on from her assault, she's not really dated. She has a best friend named Noah that is a computer whiz. I

I needed the cuteness and the silliness that only those dorks could provide!

This was really sweet and adorable. It didn’t have the same magic as the first book, but it was definitely better than the second one. The whole series is such a fun time. It’s simple and kinda basic, but still so enjoyable and cute. The guys in the bromance book club are just so freakin hilarious? They might be the main reason I’m still reading this series. Regarding the romance, it’s cute, but I felt like ther

TW: death of a parent; rape survivor (no description of assault on page); sick parent

This is the kind of friends to lovers story I like. The characters in this have been friends only for a year or so, and as adults, with it always feeling like the timing isn’t right. And it’s obvious they love each other to everyone but them. I really liked their dynamic. I felt they learned from each other, were supportive of each other, and complimented each other well.

This book returned to a lot of the thing

This was so close to being a 4.5 or 5 star book, because the actual romance bit of this book was one of my favorite friends-to-lovers stories I've ever read. I really loved the way most of that relationship unfolded and I LOVED how Noah & Alexis developed their feelings & intimacy together. The struggle I have with this book is that it also has an external family conflict that I think was just too angsty for my tastes and even beyond the angst factor, I just don't think the plot had enough room ...more

I rarely listen to romance audiobooks, and I’m asking myself why, because this one was almost a nonstop listen for me. Thanks to a fabulous narration, and a sexy voice – the audiobook was pure pleasure to listen to, and the sex scenes were YUMMY!!!!

Overall, the novel was a solid addition to the series. And anyone loving the Friends to Lovers trope will enjoy Noah and Alexis love story. It was palpable how well they knew and respected each other. Also, their chemistry was on point and m

So, I do feel a bit misled!!

I loved “The Bromance Book Club” a fresh premise where a group of male friends secretly got together to read “Fabio” style romance for clues on how to woo the women they loved.
A book within a book, sweet and steamy!

I eagerly picked up the second in the series, “Undercover Bromance” and was disappointed.

Although a second member of the club, was trying to get his gal, it didn’t have the “book within a book” or as much time spent in meetings, as the focus was a sexua

This was another fun and addictive read that had me laughing out loud and smiling almost all the way through. I love the characters and the insight into why they do what they do. I find that so refreshing seeing the men vulnerable and so in tune with their feelings and emotions. This was another great edition to the series! Can’t wait for the next one!

Well this was an absolute DELIGHT to read! I was already loving the series but this is definitely my favorite yet, and I breezed through it in a day! Crazy Stupid Bromance is a friends to lovers story that (unsurprisingly) includes some great meta commentary on the romance genre, is unabashedly feminist, and tackles toxic masculinity and unaddressed anger. It's also an interesting blend of laugh-out-loud funny with adorable banter, plus a meaty look working through conflict and personal trauma t ...more

I loved Alexis and Noah. She’s stronger than she thinks and he’s gooey-er than he knows. Together they have such a supportive relationship that it was delightful reading them figure out how to progress into something new. Of course it was fun seeing the rest of the group and the club.

Plot wise, it was mostly good. I really struggled with parts of the family things that happened and found myself angry with Alexis fo

TW for death of a loved one, a sick loved one, and sexual assault (not on page).

This book was just so hard to get through. I didn't love the romance and I really didn't care for the family drama. Alexis and Noah have been best friends for over a year, but they both secretly like each other. I feel like there wasn't really a development of their romance. They finally talked to each other and then they were together and happy. I would have liked more development of the romance and not ju

Admittedly I was a tad nervous going into this book because we knew only cursory things about both Alexis and Noah from the previous novels, which can be both a blessing and a curse. On top of that, friends-to-lovers stories can b

I was so excited about the friends-to-lovers story. It's one of my favorite tropes in romance novels. And honestly, the romance part was pretty good. I liked the two main characters, Alexis and Noah, and liked their friendship. I was rooting for them all the way.

“What would you say is your pet peeve about poorly crafted romance novels? That would be when two adult characters avoid having a grown-up conversation that could change the course of the story.”

“You know what I love most about the books? I love how they can make us cheer for pretty much any character if we understand why they’re doing something. We’ll let them get away with pretty much anything–including pushing away the woman they desperately want–if they have a strong motivation. The why behind their actions.”
