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.
While I’ve been a fan of this series from the start, this is definitely my favorite so far, no question! I don’t know if it’s because I’ve grown more attached to the gang or what, but I was fully invested in this one almost immediately and had the best time reading this. I mean, you have a group of macho men who read romance novels together in order to woo and understand their women better and they’re actively working on their own toxic masculinity, BIG SWOON! On top of that this one is hilarious, sweet, sexy and fun. Read it if you like fun.
Noah and Alexis are friends turned lovers and I adore that trope, probably because that’s exactly what happened between me and my husband, but I digress. It’s clear immediately that these two need to get together already, but seeing them fumble through before they found their footing was half of the fun. There’s a great mix of tenderness and heat between them and I loved every second of their journey to romance. Meanwhile, Mack is planning his wedding and Liv is hands off letting him go full on Bridezilla and between him freaking out over the wedding and making the book club help with everything from seating charts to flowers and the Russian in general I was cackling so hard I had actual tears. This series is everything I could want in a romance and more, now I’m just sad I have to wait for another book! If you’ve been sleeping on this series, get it together cause you’re missing out!
Overall rating: 5/5
