Alexis Carlisle and her cat café, ToeBeans, have shot to fame after she came forward as a victim of a celebrity chef’s sexual harassment. When a new customer approaches to confide in her, the last thing Alexis expects is for the woman to claim they’re sisters. Unsure what to do, Alexis turns to the only man she trusts—her best friend, Noah Logan.

The Written Review

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 forlo

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

Yayy!!! My favorite bookish charming wolf pack is back! They are back in town with another funny, swoon, sweet, entertaining journey!
What we have in our menu:

Noah: A nerd, emotional, smart, caring, lovable hero we may easily empathize with.

Finally good hearted, sexual assault survivor sweet, likable heroine Alexis( my main problem about the first two books was my unbearable urge to punch the annoying heroines against their faces and punish them for acting like obnoxious brats and treating those

Another book with my favourite boys featuring my favourite trope: friends-to-lovers

Loved, loved, loved it!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
By far the best of the series!

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.

Here we have Alexis Carlisle, owner of the ToeBeans cafe whose life has taken quite the turn since we

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’m a little upset i didn’t enjoy this one as much as the other two. i completely LOVED the first and second book, and i really fell for noah the moment he was described as wearing a black leather jacket. and then he was described as a computer hacker with glasses and wearing a pokemon shirt. i was SOLD. my expectations were high. my biggest issue is that i felt like i didn’t meet noah and alexis enough as individuals and as a couple. nonetheless it was a quick and fun read. sweet, corny, and cu ...more

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

How good is the third book in Lyssa Kay Adams' Bromance Book Club series? Well, I stayed up until 2:30am reading it last night despite the fact that I have to write three different articles for work today and I DON'T EVEN CARE. I'D DO IT AGAIN. WHEN I STAN, I STAN HARD.

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

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 will gleefully read any book in this series and not even know a thing about it.

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

I think this was my favorite in this series so far. And yet, I think I'm not going to continue the series. I don't have the patience for them.

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.

Thank you to Berkley Pub and NetGalley for a gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

This one doesn't come out for a few months but I couldn't wait to read it. The Bromance Book Club was my favorite rom com of 2019 but I didn't love Undercover Bromance so I was worried I wouldn't like this one. Well, fear not, this one is AMAZING! Friends to Lovers is definitely one of my favorite tropes and Noah and Alexis may be one of my favorite book couples ever. Their relationship/friendship fee

This was my favourite of the series so far. It was the loveliest friends-to-more story with a strong serious theme to underpin the comedy and banter. Noah and Alexis worked so well as a main couple rather than the side characters we’ve seen them as before.

What I enjoyed was that there was no speed in their feelings or relationship development as they’d been doing all that best friend building for the last year. I don’t want to spoil the foundational story but it was emotional and struck more tha

While I’ve been a fan of this series from the start, this is definitely my favorite so far, no question! I don’t know if it’s because I’ve grown more attached to the gang or what, but I was fully invested in this one almost immediately and had the best time reading this. I mean, you have a group of macho men who read romance novels together in order to woo and understand their women better and they’re actively working on their own toxic masculinity, BIG SWOON!

I was so excited to get an ARC for this one! I had actually JUST read Undercover Bromance a week before and then the publisher granted my wish for this one the NEXT day!

ARC provided by Berkley through NetGalley.

Crazy Stupid Bromance is by far my favorite book in the Bromance Book Club series. Noah and Alexis are the shining stars of these books (in my opinion) and their friends-to-lovers romance was nothing short of perfection.

Everything about this book works: the characters, the plot, the chemistry, the themes. Lyssa Kay Adams has created such a well-rounded novel. It’s obviously written as a rom-com, but the
