'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.


Santa Says: 

A Very Merry Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams is just in time for all you Hallmark Channel Christmas rom com movie madness fans out there. And, yes, that means yours truly. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and this book checks off all the boxes. Hot cocoa. Check. Grumpy Scrooge meets Sunshine Elf. Check. Plenty of good cheer and, of course, the ever loving members of the Bromance Book Club. Check and check and check. A band of the hottest men in the Nashville area who happen to love reading romance novels. They see them as manuals on how to successfully woo and win the women of their lives. Yes, romance readers, they have unlocked the secrets we have already found within their pages. 

Colton Wheeler is a country music star with a stalled career. His muse seems to have gone missing. That is until one Gretchen Winthrop reluctantly comes back into his life. Gretchen is an immigration lawyer with demons of her own in the shape of her cold, indifferent family. And she hates the holiday season. Something Colton sees as a challenge. With the help of his buddies and romance novels aka manuals he sets out to woo her and bring her into the true experience of Christmas - full stop. 

Gretchen puts up with his Christmas wreath wrangling as long as he considers being a spokesperson for her family’s whiskey re-branding. A deal she struck with her devil of a brother. Gretchen is no match for Colton’s charm, swagger, not to mention his washboard abs and his romance reading heart. Gretchen is the kick start Colton’s career needs. 

Lyssa Kay Adams' series The Bromance Book Club is so much fun to read! I have read about half of the series, in no particular order and have found each one to be a delight. The banter is funny. The situations the guys find themselves in are hilarious and entirely of their own making. I, for one, would like to wish upon a Christmas star to see this series made into a limited edition series of movies. I’m looking at you, Hallmark!

  1. No, I haven't ready any of the bromance book club series yet, but I want to. I love Hallmark Christmas mvoies and I have started reading Christmas romances. A Cat Cafe Christmas by Codi Gari and A Merry Little Meet Cute by Julie Murphy were both good.

  2. I have not yet read any of the Bromance series. It does sound like a series that would appeal to me. I am not a particular fan of Hallmark films. I love Christmas romances and I have some really old anthologies which always bring me happiness. Have not started any of them yet. In fact, I really could use them in my life. Thanks for the terrific review, you have made this book sound like fun. And books which make me laugh are always a good thing.

  3. I haven’t read any books from this series yet, but they sound really fun! I do love holiday movies, but I haven’t started watching or reading holiday movies and books this season yet. I need the weather to be a bit cooler to get in the holiday mindset.

  4. I've only read the first in the Bromance Bookclub series, but I loved it and look forward to getting through them all. I'm currently on my second Christmas romance book of the season and it makes me so happy! I read the Sally Kilpatrick book that you recommended, The Not So Nice List, which was lots of fun. I'm currently reading and ARC of Merry Kissmas to Me by Jerica MacMillan and I'm devouring it!!

    We have had the Hallmark Channel on almost constantly since they started their Christmas movies. My husband is actually the one who usually turns it on.
    I just finished The Road To Christmas by Sheila Roberts today. What a great book. I haven't decided what will be next. My time is crazy lately and I am having a hard time finding time to read.

  18. Lyssa Kay Adams is a new author for me. I have not read any of her Bromance Book Club series. It does sound like a great premise for a series.
    I love the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas stories. Along with many of their other movies. It’s fun when the movies are based on books I’ve already read: Susan Wiggs, Lori Wilde, Nancy Naigle, Debbie Macomber and Sherryl Woods
    I just started the Sheila Roberts’ book The Road To Christmas. After that I have Christmas books by Roxanne Rustand, Brenda Harlen, Jo McNally, Carolyn Brown and Debbie Macomber.
    I love Christmas themed stories!
