Happy Book Day 📚 And happy sixth anniversary to Jana and Steph! Thank you both for hosting this awesome link-up month after month. Our community of readers wouldn’t exist without you two and I definitely wouldn’t have read some of the amazing books I have without you guys!

WordPress changed their layout and, as it turns out, I am not good at learning new things. Especially when I’m only blogging once or twice a month… Grrrr.

Enough whining. On to the books I’ve read.

The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
★★★★★/5; Contemporary Romance
There was something cute and relatable about this story. I haven’t read many romances about married couples- especially married couples with children. While it was sweet and playful, there were also some deep moments when characters reflected on childhood trauma, loss of one’s identity, and unresolved anger or fear. Nothing was super depressing or uncomfortably deep, but I found the characters more relatable and likable because of their flaws, imperfections, and histories. The twins were adorable, the sister was frustrating but sisterly, and the groups of friends were such a solid support systems for both Gavin & Thea. I love that the book club addressed chivalry vs. chauvinism… your wife/girlfriend/partner isn’t helpless but she wants to feel wanted. It’s a fun concept- men reading romance novels. Lol. I’m sure some do, but I think most would be as uncomfortable as Gavin- at least at first.
Read It? Yep.


That’s it. That’s all she wrote. I’m in the middle of four books right now and I have some Moo reads to share, but I’m already running late with this post soooooo… I’m wrapping it up.

Go read some other reader blogs that have their act more together than me 😉

  1. I have had a series of tech issues recently with code and I’m annoyed.
    Four books! I can’t remember what I did two minutes ago I’m afraid I’d lose all the threads LOL

  2. Girl, you read a book and got a post written, so you’ve already one-upped me! LOL! I like the fact the book you read was a romance with a married couple – definitely something you don’t often see. And I agree – I like romances that still give me the HEA I expect, along with some realism too.

    1. Unless it’s a forced marriage or marriage of convenience, it’s tough to find a married couple. This one did it well! I’m always game for a good ol’ HEA!

    1. Hahaha- it kind of throws you for a minute. But the bromance club is adorable. It’s nice to see dudes trying to understand and love their ladies respectfully and completely. It’s kind of rare to see healthy male friendships if you think about it.
