The premise of the first installment of "The Bromance Book Club" is a different kind of romance. Thea and Gavin are married with 3-year old twin daughters. And like in real life, they got themselves in trouble and have to regain their love life back together.
The writing was solid, and humor splashes, especially between Gavin and his book club buddies. The book doesn’t beat around the bush and gets straight into the thick of things from the get-go. Some of it is a tad on the overly dramatic side, but that added a nice bit of angst here and there. As this is based around a romance book club, the story occasionally flicks to a regency romance being read by Gavin. I really enjoyed this fresh take written into the story. One of the things I loved the most about this book was Gavin’s stutter. It made him self-conscious and, at times, terrified, and I loved it.
Beneath all the fun, games, and whimsical plotting, there is an undercurrent of truth. Men and women speak different love languages, making it difficult for them to relate to each other. Gavin has to learn to communicate with Thea effectively and honestly reflect on how they became so out of tune. The story isn’t all about a bumbling, clueless husband, however. Thea is a superb mom and a supportive wife, but she owns a piece of their dysfunctional marital pie. I’m glad she has opportunities to examine her own faults.
The solution for the differences that Thea & Gavin have is communication between them and being open about everything about them. ( )

Cute concept. A man is struggling with his relationship and his friends invite him to join their book club where they read romance novels to better understand women. ( )

This book has been on my TBR for over a year and a half, it was about time I read it! It came at a good time, as I've been having a bit of a mehhh reading month so far. This one was fun, with the right about of steam. Can I count it as two books read as there are excerpts from the book club was reading interspersed throughout the book?! ( )

The Bromance Book Club has received sooo much praise - and several friends recommended it to me - which is why I finally decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. To be perfectly honest, I thought Gavin and Thea were a little boring. Their problems felt authentic and they were characters I could relate to, but I didn't like that the story seemed to be based on whether or not Gavin could make her orgasm. I know there was more to it than that, but her lack of O's played a REALLY big role in their relationship.

Thea faked her orgasms for three years and Gavin never noticed. His explanation later on was plausible, but still unlikely. It simply wasn't believable for him to have been oblivious for that long. Their "big night" was all about whether or not she would orgasm, and if Gavin would finally be able to get her there. They should've been able to work on their marriage without Thea's vagina playing such a prominent role in the equation. Do I think it was handled well? Sure. I thought the author explored that aspect of their relationship in a very unique way; I just didn't understand why that one thing seemed to outweigh everything else. Sex was the least of their problems, yet it was the one they focused on the most.

I did, however, really like the baseball team and Gavin's friends. The Bromance Book Club itself was interesting, and I wish there had been more page time for all of the guys involved. It was fun listening to them dissect romance novels and apply them to their daily lives. I think more men should read romance novels just to give them a better idea of how women think (and potentially give them some ideas for the bedroom.)

All in all, it was a fun book to listen to, just not one I was eager to dive into every day. I had to keep reminding myself to listen to a few chapters before my library loan expired (again (and again)). Thea and Gavin just didn't hold my attention, but I'm definitely interested in the tension brewing between Liv and Mack. I have a feeling their story will have a lot more steam and *fingers crossed* be more interesting overall.

Random thought: I wasn't really a fan of Gavin's "grand gesture" at the end. It just didn't sit well with me. What he did was EXTREMELY rude and selfish. There were so many other ways for him to declare his unending love for his wife, but he chose to overshadow someone else's big moment. #NotCoolBro

Lastly, I enjoyed the random chapters from the book Gavin was reading, and seeing how the parallels played out in his life. I would definitely be interested in reading that book, if only it were real and something I could actually do. 😉 Kudos to Adams for creating two very distinct-yet-similar stories in one book! I thought it was a brilliant concept that worked really well for this story, so hopefully all of the other books in this series follow the same format. (★★★☆☆)

This was as enjoyable as I had hoped it would be. The premise is a bit cheesy - a bunch of guys reading romance novels to learn how to fix their relationships and be better partners - but the execution worked. Gavin and Thea were incredibly well characterized and fleshed out, and they made me root for them. The secondary characters were also great!

This seems like the start of a series, and I really hope so. It was fun and I would love more.
