Publisher's Summary

One of OprahMag.com’s Best Romances of 2020

Braden Mack thinks reading romance novels makes him an expert in love, but he’ll soon discover that real life is better than fiction.

Liv Papandreas has a dream job as a sous chef at Nashville’s hottest restaurant. Too bad the celebrity chef owner is less than charming behind kitchen doors. After she catches him harassing a young hostess, she confronts him and gets fired. Liv vows revenge, but she’ll need assistance to take on the powerful chef.

Unfortunately, that means turning to Braden Mack. When Liv’s blackballed from the restaurant scene, the charismatic nightclub entrepreneur offers to help expose her ex-boss, but she is suspicious of his motives. He’ll need to call in reinforcements: the Bromance Book Club.

Inspired by the romantic suspense novel they’re reading, the book club assists Liv in setting up a sting operation to take down the chef. But they’re just as eager to help Mack figure out the way to Liv’s heart...even though she’s determined to squelch the sparks between them before she gets burned.

Another great story by Lyssa Kay Adams!

I absolutely love the Bromance Book Club series! The characters are amazing and the story line is amazing. If I were reading it myself it would be a book I couldn't put down. Thank goodness for audio books!

The narrator is wonderful and I love that it's men reading these books!

If you're on the fence about checking this series out, let me help you out. Do it!!! You won't regret it!

9 hours of virtue signaling

Premise showed so much promise , but turned into a lead female that whines and a male protagonist that is unrealistic. So disappointing.

Comical, contemporary romance with a twist

Braden Mack is a mover and shaker in Nashville where he owns several bars and clubs. He is celebrating his three month anniversary with his current lady and takes her to an exclusive restaurant and orders an outrageously expensive dessert. Created and served by Liv Papandreas in a ritual with the celebrity chef and owner, everything goes wrong on this night. Later, called to her boss’s office, Liv arrives to find him harassing a young hostess. When she calls him on it, he fires her. Vowing revenge, Liv runs into Mack after being escorted out of the restaurant, when he offers help, but she is too angry and hurt to accept.

As Liv finds work impossible to find since she is being blackballed, Braden Mack offers help again. Liv is suspicious of his motives. The chemistry between Mack and Liv is undeniable, but she refuses to see it. Braden turns to the Bromance Book Club members for help. Half a dozen athletic or powerful men comprise the club and have all been through troubled relationships. Liv knows the men in the club from when they recently helped her sister Thea and her husband Gavin save their marriage. They’ve turned to romance novels as manuals. They are currently reading romantic suspense which inspires them to help Liv set up a sting operation. They need solid evidence if they intend to take her ex-boss down.

Liv learns things about herself while trying to help the young hostess and a close friend who had also been harassed by her ex-boss. Mack learns that life can be better than fiction. The Club is eager to help him find a way to her heart, but Liv is determined to shut Mack down before she is burned. The women in Liv’s life encourage her to let go of her mis-trust and move beyond the hurt from her childhood that rules her life.

The give and take and back and forth between Liv and Mack was realistically, and at times comically, portrayed. Ultimately, this is a romance story of its own, but it takes place in today’s very real world with today’s issues of sexual harassment and intimidation and blackmail. The aftermath of childhood abuse in adult life is also dealt with. Despite the darker issues, there is love and romance and comedy and friendship. Narrator Andrew Eiden takes us through all of it with his confident male voice. Told in the third person, he captures the dialogue between Club members perfectly.

I think what sets the Bromance Book Club apart is that these people deal with all phases of life. They aren’t focused only on getting men and women together, but they strive for happiness between them through all phases of love and marriage. They’ve all had their troubles, but with the help of friends, and a few romance novels, they make it through. I understand that a third book in this series is in the works, and I’ll be first in line to read it.

Love

I loved Mack’s story! This series is a favorite for my husband. He enjoys listening to it while we are fishing. It makes him laugh so much. To me that’s the best part, enjoying it with my husband.

A cute, fun listen

I’m now addicted to Lyssa Kay Adams’ books. I liked this one even more than bromance book club. It is a charming, easy listen with loveable Quirky characters who hold a refreshingly sweet viewpoint of women.

Fun listen

This story contains several laugh out loud moments. Didn't much care for narrators voice for Liv. I enjoyed getting to know all the characters better. Will be listening to next book in series.

I wanted to like it so bad but....

I find that it's kind of hard to like a book when you can't connect to the heroine because she's a judgmental not so nice word that I can't use in my review. I was not a fan of Olivia in the first book and the second book just drove that point home. Mac was the only saving grace for me, and even though I did not approve I hoped for the best for him.

So funny but yet powerful

Would have liked a little more description of the book signing. Some great suspense and fun other incidents. I felt sometimes the author pushed too fast through incidents and we wallowed in the mind stuff a little longer.
Read in order if possible.
