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.
Reader’s review: This was our book club read for the month of August.
Such a fun book to read. It was light hearted and enjoyable. I loved reading from the point of view of a man who was trying to learn about women by using a book.
However, the interesting part is that some chapters are a different book entirely. We were getting snippets of the romance novel that was being read in our journey.
Gavin, our main character, wants to save his marriage after finding out that his wife has been lying to him for the past 3 years. So his buddies, decided to help him out by making him join their secret men’s bookclub (where they learn from romance novels) how to better their relationships with their wives.
I loved reading how these men conspire among themselves to make their wives happy. But at the same time it was tedious.
Thea, Our Gavin’s wife, was very to the point. I think we can all connect with her when it comes to lack of communication and the feeling of powerlessness.
In the end, this book was fun and perfect for a light read. I read this book via audible and the narrator did a marvelous job.
Until Next time Book Dragons!
