44. The Bromance Book Club by Lissa Kay Adams

listened on Libby/Borrowed from the Library
narrated by Andrew Eiden - nice job; small deeper voiced parts by Maxwell Caulfield didn't work for me, he sounded too old for 29...
Unabridged audio (9:09)
352 pgs.
Adult romance
Finished 5/3/2021
Goodreads rating: 3.92 - 44,157 ratings
My rating: 3.5+
Setting: contemporary Nashville

First line/s: "There was a reason Gavin Scott rarely drank.  He was bad at it."

My comments: A totally fun, eye-rolling romp through a contemporary marriage falling apart and the young, handsome, stuttering major league ball player who doesn't want to lose his wife.  Five of Gavin's teammates - all hot, famous Nashville MLB players, have formed a secret book club where they read regency romance novels to help understand their wives' feelings and needs.  Yes, a totally ridiculous premise, but it sure makes for some hilarious -- as well as ridiculous -- escapades.  Great, predictable fun.

Goodreads synopsis:  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.
