Fresh Fiction Review

A Very Merry Bromance

Romance Holiday | Romance Comedy

Let me start off by saying that before last week, I had not read a Lyssa Kay Adams book including any of the Bromance Book Club series.  Since it is impossible for me to read a series out of order, I read the entire five-book series in the past five days. The premise is unique: a group of attractive and successful men (many of whom are professional athletes) reads romances to reduce toxic masculine behavior and improve their relationships.  I loved all the characters in each of the five books individually and the way they interacted as a family.  The dialogue, tropes, storylines, and character development kept me engaged from start to finish. 

A VERY MERRY BROMANCE is set at Christmas time and focuses on Rock Star Colton Wheeler and Immigration Attorney Gretchen Winthrop (who we glimpsed briefly as Mack's soon-to-be ex-girlfriend in the second book, UNDERCOVER BROMANCE).  The back story, which we learn is everything, primarily focuses on Gretchen's dysfunctional family that causes her issues and Colton's present career difficulties. 

As in the other books, insightful, short passages from the romance novel the men are reading are featured.  All prior characters visit throughout this book to cheer on the couple, tease mercilessly, and provide helpful advice.  Highly recommend the series. The entire historical romance the men were reading in book one is advertised as an upcoming release by the author.   I hope there are more books featuring the Bromance Book Club characters in the future.

SUMMARY

Country music’s golden boy Colton Wheeler felt the most perfect harmony when he was with Gretchen Winthrop. But for her, it was a love him and leave him situation. A year later, Colton is struggling to push his music forward in a new direction. If it weren’t about to be the most magical time of year and the support of the Bromance Book Club, he’d be wallowing in self-pity. 
 
It’s hard for immigration attorney Gretchen not to feel a little Scrooge-ish about the excess of Christmas when her clients are scrambling to afford their rent. So when her estranged, wealthy family reaches out with an offer that will allow her to better serve the community, she’s unable to say no. She just needs to convince Colton to be the new face of her family’s whiskey brand. No big deal…
 
Colton agrees to consider Gretchen’s offer in exchange for three dates before Christmas. With the help of the Bromance Book Club, Colton throws himself into the task of proving to her there’s a spark between them. But Gretchen and Colton will both need to overcome the ghosts of Christmas past to build a future together.
