The Plot (from Goodreads):

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. 

The Review: 

I LOVE the concept of a rom-com from the man’s perspective, and I love the concept of an all-male book club where they read and discuss romances. I thought the men of the Bromance Book Club were so fun, and loved that they would talk openly about their feelings and talk to their friends about their relationship issues. Their friendship was just so perfect. I especially loved the humor that The Russian brought to the table!

There were a few things that I didn’t love about this book. Mainly, the female lead, Thea. She expected Gavin to read her mind, and expected him to know why she was angry without ever having a conversation with him about what wasn’t working in their relationship. She had faked her orgasms for their entire three-year relationship, and was angry at Gavin for this without ever telling him anything was wrong! I hate it when women expect men to get everything right without any help. This went for their entire relationship, though. All of their problems could’ve been solved with a simple conversation about their feelings.

I think the miscommunication theme just isn’t for me, because it bothers me every time.

Regardless, I loved the other aspects of this book and can’t wait for book two (especially since it has a different trope)!
