Braden Mack thinks reading romance novels makes him an expert in love, but he’ll soon discover that real life is better than fiction.
Liv Papandreas has a dream job as a sous chef at Nashville’s hottest restaurant. Too bad the celebrity chef owner is less than charming behind kitchen doors. After she catches him harassing a young hostess, she confronts him and gets fired. Liv vows revenge, but she’ll need assistance to take on the powerful chef.
Unfortunately, that means turning to Braden Mack. When Liv’s blackballed from the restaurant scene, the charismatic nightclub entrepreneur offers to help expose her ex-boss, but she is suspicious of his motives. He’ll need to call in reinforcements: the Bromance Book Club.
Inspired by the romantic suspense novel they’re reading, the book club assists Liv in setting up a sting operation to take down the chef. But they’re just as eager to help Mack figure out the way to Liv’s heart… even though she’s determined to squelch the sparks between them before she gets burned.

Lyssa Kay Adams read her first romance novel in eighth grade after swiping one from her grandmother’s book shelf and was hooked forever. After a nearly 20-year career as a journalist, her dreams of writing and publishing her own HEAs came true in 2015 with the release of her first novel, Seventh Inning Heat, followed by the RITA-nominated novella, Wild in Rio. Today, she writes full-time from her home in Michigan with a pesky, fluffy K9 assistant named Domino who spends most of his day snoring on her desk (that is, when he’s not burying things around the house).
Mack was one of my favorite characters from the series, the one who started this book club.
I have to say that cocky, and very confident man was going to see how it was like to be that guy; someone who was hopeless and seeking help.
This successful businessman who used romance novels, giving advice to others felt overwhelmed and was given a run for his money.
I appreciated reading this side of Mack, being this time clueless and not being in charge for once. Liv was a tornado that would break him if he wasn’t careful with his heart. Maybe it was time to see past the superficial, not to overuse his readings and finally be himself. Liv was guarded and skittish, using sarcasm to push people away. Strong, independent and so stubborn.
When these two teamed up for justice, exploring as well issues rooted in reality, be sure the bromance book club was going to be involved. You might guess, when the guys were involved all bets were off.
Colorful characters, hilarious situations but don’t forget the romance, well Mack and Liv are going to discover how it feels like to fall in love and to let it go.
The main characters seemed more alike than they would have thought of and revealed themselves throughout this investigation.
I laughed so many times I lost count, the supportive characters were awesome and the whole thing created this wonderful family, friends, a crazy bunch still, but so effortless to love.
The stories get better with each book. I adored Gavin and Thea’s story. Now Mack finally found love and it was a delightful surprise.
Characters backgrounds were well developed and it has somehow more depths than it seemed to be. Real life is definitely better than fiction and Mack is going to learn it in a hard way. The expert in love is going to get caught and Liv was the perfect match to keep him on his toes.
It was entertaining, swoony with a communicative cheerfulness. I can’t wait to read the next one!
