If you are a fan of contemporary romance, the Bromance Book Club series is one you should check out! The third installment doesn't disappoint. Noah Parsons is the newest member of the book club. He hasn't admitted to his friends, or himself, that he's in love with Alexis, the adorkable proprieter of the Toe Beans Cat Cafe, but he probably/definitely is. Noah and Alexis are best friends, though, and neither of them wants to ruin that. The bros swoop in with a love lesson in the form of the club's latest book club pick. As usual, there are layers and obstacles that run a lot deeper than the typical friends to lovers trope and the bros have each other's backs. I continue to love this representation of modern masculinity and male friendship (and the women are great, too!). Everyone is three dimensional, flawed, authentic, and supremely likeable. And, it's not over yet...

“Alexis’ life has been a bit crazy lately. In addition to uncovering a family secret, she owns a cat café, which has become a meeting ground for women who have experienced sexual harassment, and is in love with her best friend, Noah. Noah is also in love with Alexis and reluctantly receives help from the Bromance Book Club. Adams delivers a funny, romantic novel that touches on major issues, including the aftermath of speaking out about sexual harassment, forgiveness, compassion, and trust.”

A LibraryReads Hall of Fame Title
A hacktivist and a cat café owner decode the friend zone in this romantic comedy from the author of Undercover Bromance. Alexis Carlisle and her cat café, ToeBeans, have shot to fame after she came forward as a victim of a celebrity chef’s sexual harassment. When a new customer approaches to confide in her, the last thing Alexis expects is for the woman to claim they’re sisters. Unsure what to do, Alexis turns to the only man she trusts—her best friend, Noah Logan.
Computer genius Noah left his rebellious teenage hacker past behind to become a computer security expert. Now he only uses his old skills for the right cause. But Noah’s got a secret: He’s madly in love with Alexis. When she asks for his help, he wonders if the timing will ever be right to confess his crush.
Noah’s pals in The Bromance Book Club are more than willing to share their beloved “manuals” to help him go from bud to boyfriend. But he must decide if telling the truth is worth risking the best friendship he’s ever had.
About the Author
After a nearly 20-year career as a journalist, Lyssa Kay Adams's dreams of writing and publishing her own HEAs came true in 2015 with the release of her first novel. 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).
