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.
After reading the first book I absolutely knew I was going to love Mack and Liv's story, what I wasn't prepared for was how much more than the first book, I was going to love it.
If you want more humor, more romance, more cheesy yet irresistible one liners and more of the Russian and all his lactose intolerance, this is the story for you.
It will be a toss up between how much more you will laugh, swoon, and how quickly you can turn the pages to get more. So many emotions will run through you while reading this you will feel as if you are on a roller coaster and right there with them through it all. Simply said, it was just more.
It is hard not to love all the men in these stories. They are so sincere and they truly have hearts of gold. And even though they make mistakes, they steal the show with their bromance and be willing to do whatever it takes to get the one that they love, that it makes up for everything else.
The women on the other hand? They are cranky and downright mean and awful at times and, I'm not going to lie, sometimes I found it hard to even like them and their choices but all in all, the author still somehow manages to make you feel for them and they do redeem themselves in the end.
