Any book in The Bromance Bookclub series is an instant pre order for me – they’re also drop-everything-and-read-immediately-when-they-arrive books. Naturally, I was very, very excited when my preorder of the third book in the series, Crazy Stupid Bromance, arrived early. I dropped both of my other books I was reading and dove straight in.
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.
A hacktivist and a cat café owner decode the friend zone in this romantic comedy from the author of Undercover Bromance.
Crazy Stupid Bromance picks up not too long after the events of Undercover Bromance – Noah (who had helped to blow the lid off of the serial sexual assaulter from the previous book) has developed a friendship with sexual-assault-victim-turned-cat-cafe-owner Alexis. The book gets moving quickly – as Alexis deals with cafe drama, family drama, and the weight of supporting other survivors and Noah deals with the expectations of his family and his friends impending nuptials. I read this book all in one sitting, and I have a feeling that other fans of this series will as well.
Ok – Alexis and Noah are my new favorite Bromance Bookclub couple. Even as best friends, it was clear that they were meant for one another – they were so comfortable together and had such an innate sense of trust with each other. I loved reading about the little things they did for each other – even just popping in to visit each other at work, these little moments were adorable and set an excellent tone for their relationship. They also pushed each other to grow and be better people, which, to me, really proves a healthy relationship. Their romance was definitely on the slow burn side, but their friendship was just as enjoyable (also, talk about tension).
On a side note, I am dying for the Russian’s book – he was by far the best side character in this book (and the previous two books) and he deserves his time in the spotlight. I can’t wait to see what the situation is with his wife, and to get to see little snippets of Alexis and Noah and the other Bromance couples.
Crazy Stupid Bromance is adorable, realistic, and so, so funny. I can’t get over how much I care for all the characters in this series, and how excited I was to get little cameos from characters from earlier books. Book after book, Lyssa Kay Adams gets better and better. I sincerely cannot wait for the fourth book in this series.
