I am loving the Bromance Book Club series and was delighted to curl up by the fire with A Very Merry Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams, the fifth novel in the series. A scrooge heroine and sunshine hero delivered a swoon worthy holiday tale with friends and family.

'Tis the season for a Bromance Book Club matchmaking mission! This time, they're pulling out the mistletoe for everyone's favorite country music star, Colton, and his second chance at love.

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.

Country music star Colton Wheeler and Gretchen Winthrop had a one-night stand at a wedding. It was magic, and Colton wanted more, but Gretchen didn’t look back. Colton’s career is in a funk, and he hasn’t been interested in anyone since that wedding night. When the two meet years later, the fates may finally have aligned, or at least Colton hopes for a second chance.

Gretchen’s family wants him to sign a deal endorsing their product, and Gretchen’s been tasked to pitch it to him. He agrees if she goes on a few dates with him. Can he woo her and show her the magic of Christmas?

The tale that unfolds was delightful but also tugged at my heartstrings as the author gave us Gretchen’s story. Colton is wonderful, sweet, grounded and all about family. His love for Christmas and efforts to show Gretchen the magic of Christmas held me enthralled.

Of course, the Bromance Book Club, romance books, and their wives all stepped up to help. I loved getting updates and seeing them share moments together around the holidays. They stick up for one another, offer sound advice and go to bat for you. I laughed, cried, and read way past my bedtime.

We see the cheese man, and I am hoping we get his story. I loved the focus on family, trust and holiday traditions. Adams also reminded up to count our blessings and that just because a cake looks gorgeous with layers of icing and decorations doesn’t mean it tastes good.

While this works as a standalone, I highly encourage you to read this series in the order of their release. I have loved them all, and this motley book club gave me plenty of laughs and swoons.

    I’m not a huge Christmas book reader but this one does lovely and I’m completely intrigued at the sound of the Bromance book club, so I’ve added the first book in the series to my TBR

  2. Wendy

    I have this one on my TBR. Looks like I need to get to this sooner than later! I need to read the entire series too. Terrific review, Kimberley.

  3. Lover of Romance

    I know everyone seems to love these books, how do the heroines treat the heroes? I have the first book that I need to read but this one sounds really interesting. Good to know it’s best to read this series in order.

      Each book is different, but they act like adults, so they are respectful even if they disagree. If you have a particular concern, you can email me.
