What a fun story! I really enjoyed the dual perspectives of Gavin and Thea, as well as their friends/family. Getting to see different types of vulnerability played out in different ways was intriguing.

A fun & creative take on a traditional romance.

Oh goodness, this one was hilarious. I am a rom-com queen, and I loved this new and original take on the genre. It follows baseball star Gavin Star as his marriage begins to crumble, when he finds out his wife has been faking it.... In swoops the Bromance Book Club, which is a group of elite men who read romance novels to solve their relationship issues. Yes, the hilarity just ensues from there. Along with the main plot of Gavin and his wife, you read chapters of the romance novel Gavin is reading as his guide which immerses you even further into the story. The only reason this one wasn't a five for me is simply due to the excess of sex scenes and the extent of detail included, they just seemed too much and very unnecessary. That aside, there are two others in this series, and I am very excited to read them!

I don't usually like married romance novels but this is a refreshing take on the theme. It's well written with likeable/lovable mains, a fun cast of secondary characters including a couple of lovable little girls, a refreshing storyline and some sweet sex. This is my first Adams effort; I'll be sure to try some other titles.

I read a lot of romance novels, but this is probably my favorite one of the last few years. I loved the story of a married couple learning to reconnect and communicate. Full of laugh out loud moments, even my husband loved reading this one.

How hard would you work to save your marriage? That is the question Gavin Scott has to ask himself. Apparently he is willing to join a secret romance book club for men. This fun and adorable romance book talks about the issues of toxic masculinity and the effects it has on men developing deep, meaningful relationships.

I listened to the audio version of this book. My first by this author, but it kept me hooked to the app like nothing else has for awhile. It's one of those that you want to get to the end of to see what happens, but you never want to end.
The premise of a popular jock using a Recency Romance to win his wife back is fantastic enough, but when there's a whole "book club" of guys encouraging him because they have done the same, it is just almost too fantastic for the mind and heart to accept. Super swoon-worthy steamy scenes didn't hurt any, either.
The narrations by Andrew Eiden and Maxwell Caulfield were just what this book needed. Superb!
