Book Description: 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.

I was intrigued when I read the description of this book. A story about a guys romance book club that they use in order to help with their marriages, who knew I needed this is my life?! At first I was like okay how is this going to play out, and to my surprise it worked really well.

The idea and plot of the book is fun and something new. Romance is usually the same type of story just with a few different ways to tell it. This instead is told from a different side where you see guys delving into romance novels and using it to help them understand women. You also still get the view of the woman in the story as well, which I liked. Now the plot isn’t the most original itself, they are about to break up and he wants to save their marriage, and romance is involved. However, I enjoyed the story. It was interesting that also got to read some chapters of the romance novel Gavin was reading, so you were getting the sense of what he was using to help him. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about this, but in the end I did like it.

The characters were likable, I thought the group of guys was quite funny. The book had me laughing out loud at some parts, although there were a few parts I was like that was just silly…no. I like that you get not only Gavin and Thea, but you get to see the supporting characters a lot like Liv, Mack, and Del. Even the other guys in the book club have some funny and important lines in the story. I like that you learn a little of Thea and Gavin’s past and you see how that helps them grow as a couple as wel.

I thought the writing was pretty well done, the story flowed nicely. I liked that there was a lot of funny banter back and forth. I also now am not sure I can read a romance book without thinking of the Book Boner rating for it ha ha! I am definitely intrigued to read the second one and see how the story is going to go for Mack and Liv!
