Reviewing Isn't It Bromantic?
This is the first time I’m posting about the Bromance Book Club series, but I've been reading the entire series along with some bookstagram friends, which is what has led me to the latest book by Lyssa Kay Adams, Isn’t It Bromantic?
This book focuses on The Russian’s (a.k.a. Vlad) story and his troublesome marriage to his childhood friend, Elena. While readers are taken on a journey of a lack of communication and deep emotions between the two, we really get to know more of Vlad’s heart and he’s just the sweetest!
As with all the books in this series, the banter between the friends in the book club had me cracking up and I loved the guys’ analysis about the kiss scene they provided Vlad for his story. I can safely say, this series is a re-read for me, which says a lot. There is humour, steamy and heartwarming moments and a combo of all of those make a fantastic rom-com. And I can’t wait for the series to be on Netflix!
Also, I wish more men would read this series because they could really take away some good pointers and know that it’s okay to be open with their feelings.
Isn’t It Bromantic? releases tomorrow!
Thank you Penguin Random House Canada for the gifted copy and to Berkley and Netgalley for the e-arc. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
With his passion for romance novels, it was only a matter of time before Vlad took up the pen to write a novel the Bromance Book Club would swoon over.
Elena Konnikova has lived her entire adult life in the shadows. As the daughter of a Russian journalist who mysteriously disappeared after speaking out against government corruption, she escaped danger the only way she knew how. She agreed to marry her childhood friend, Vladimir, and move to the United States, where he is a professional hockey player in Nashville.
Vlad, aka The Russian, thought he could be content with his marriage of convenience. But after four years, it’s become too difficult to continue in a one-sided relationship. He joined the Bromance Book Club to learn how to make his wife love him, but all he’s learned is that he deserves more. He’s ready to create his own sweeping romance–both on and off the page. The Bros are unwilling to let Vlad forgo true love–and this time they’re not operating solo. They join forces with Vlad’s senior citizen neighbors, a group of meddling widows who call themselves The Loners. Just when things finally look promising, the danger from Elena’s past life intrudes, and the book club will face their first-ever life-or-death grand gesture as they race to a happy ever after.
