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.
I loved the premise of this book. I am all the time reading about how women read romance but the fact that the men were the ones reading the romance novels to help them learn a thing or two about the women and their lives and in Gavin’s case help to save his marriage I knew immediately this was a book I wanted to read.
I had high expectations for this going in and while I did really enjoy it by the time I finished it I was left a little disappointed. Not because the book was bad because it wasn’t I was just expecting so much more. Another instance where I let the hype get to me I think.
Gavin stutters and the way this was handled was amazing. I do feel like a character with a stutter would be better portrayed in a movie or tv show because to me I feel like I would feel the emotion more actually watching/hearing it rather than reading about it.
There is a book within a book which worked really well for this book but at the same time I could have done without it because it took me out of the main story.
The romance was cute and I loved how each of the characters grew throughout the story. I will definitely be continuing on with this series.
