The Bromance Book Club

Lyssa Kay Adams. Berkley, $16 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-1-984806-09-3
In this heartfelt romance, a professional baseball player fights to save his failing marriage with the help of some good friends and the inspirational exploits of a fictional nobleman. When Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott’s wife, Thea, informs him not only that she wants a divorce but that she has been faking orgasms for the three years of their marriage, he’s devastated. Macho man Gavin is just desperate enough to take the advice of a secret book club made up of other athletes and powerful men who get relationship tips from romance novels. They instruct him to use a Regency romance, Courting the Countess, as a blueprint for starting over and wooing his wife properly. Gavin and Thea rekindle their relationship, one chapter at a time, while working through their individual issues. Adams (Seventh Inning Heat) weaves in humor, complex emotions, and excerpts from the motivational story itself to create a satisfying courtship. A strong supporting cast, including Gavin’s book clubmates and his tiny, adorable twin daughters, helps flesh out the Legends community. This earnest charmer is sure to win Adams new fans. Agent: Tara Gelsomino, One Track Literary. (Nov.)
