Bromance Book Club, Book 3
From the publisher:
“[A] catchy premise with surprising wisdom and specificity.”–New York Times Book Review on The Bromance Book Club
A LibraryReads Hall of Fame Title
A hacktivist and a cat café owner decode the friend zone in this romantic comedy from the author of Undercover Bromance.
Alexis Carlisle and her cat café, ToeBeans, have shot to fame after she came forward as a victim of a celebrity chef’s sexual harassment. When a new customer approaches to confide in her, the last thing Alexis expects is for the woman to claim they’re sisters. Unsure what to do, Alexis turns to the only man she trusts—her best friend, Noah Logan.
Computer genius Noah left his rebellious teenage hacker past behind to become a computer security expert. Now he only uses his old skills for the right cause. But Noah’s got a secret: He’s madly in love with Alexis. When she asks for his help, he wonders if the timing will ever be right to confess his crush.
Noah’s pals in The Bromance Book Club are more than willing to share their beloved “manuals” to help him go from bud to boyfriend. But he must decide if telling the truth is worth risking the best friendship he’s ever had.
The friend-to-lover trope is always a good one, and Adams works her magic here for sure. This was one of those books I picked up and couldn’t put down until I (sadly) turned the last page. Hopefully, there will be more books in one of my favorite series. I have to say the first book is still my favorite (The Bromance Book Club) but I have truly enjoyed every one. I think they are best read in order, but each book definitely stands alone. And breaking news from Adams’ Twitter account: coming soon to Netflix!
The premise of these books is that this group of men learn how to treat women by reading (gasp!) romance novels. And it works. These are all big, alpha males who understand more about women because of their book club. That is not a bad thing. The other good thing is that these books are really funny, like laugh out loud funny, which I love.
The main characters in this book are Noah, a computer nerd who is best friends with Alexis. Alexis is a sexual assault survivor and she is very sweet and kind. Noah realizes he’s falling in love with Alexis but he also loves their friendship and is afraid to ruin it. But the book club teaches him how to make it all work out. There are some angsty moments for sure, but everyone gets their happy ending with a lot of laughs along the way.
If you haven’t started this series, please do yourself a favor and start reading. If you have read the first two books, what are you waiting for? Or start here, you definitely can. Put this one in the “must-read” column.
