Happy Valentine’s Day if you celebrate! Happy Sunday if you don’t! ❤️😊
I have seen this book everywhere in all the stacks. And I just love the concept of using romance novels as manuals to love language and how to talk to their ladies.Gavin is the big strong popular jock that ended getting married since his girlfriend got pregnant and we are 5 years later. They have been going through the motions since they were too scared to talk in the beginning. The parallels between their life and the book that his book club gives him are very similar. I just loved in the audiobook the journey back to regency England. And then after he read the book enough he started to hear the character in his head.
Thea his wife feels like she trapped him into marriage by getting pregnant like her mother did and doesn’t feel like she fits in with the players wives. I would definitely not fit in with the players wives. She isn’t playing anymore and isn’t going to let him fall on his good looks anymore.But they both have insecurities and vulnerabilities that they hadn’t shared or dug too deep into. Those things are scary but necessary to have a healthy relationship with someone. He has a stutter and people are still cruel about it, even though he’s a celebrity.
I loved that he had a group of friends that wanted to help him in a non-bro way to save his relationship and help him understand his wife better and know how to communicate.
I hated how toxic Thea’s group of forced friends were, (I think that’s a reality for that group though). A few seemed ok but would turn their backs on her in an instant if they broke up. I want to read the next one hopefully the ladies get a better dynamic if that one is no longer. She seems like the mean girl.
I would definitely recommend this book it was very sweet and a journey of self discovery for both. They were both growing as humans inside a relationship they hadn’t nurtured in the beginning. They had to relearn eachother and gave eachother some time and space and their own room to grow. They weren’t perfect and will have a lot more work but they are in the right direction.
If only more relationships were able to go through this and communicate without giving up bitterly there would be happier healthier people out there. You don’t need a relationship to be happy, btw.
Also, if there’s abuse don’t stick it out or try to make it work. (I’m always here -message me)
The first rule of book club: You don’t talk about book club.
Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott’s marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him.
Welcome to the Bromance Book Club.
Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville’s top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage. But it’ll take a lot more than flowery words and grand gestures for this hapless Romeo to find his inner hero and win back the trust of his wife.
