The first rule of this 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.

Booklist Review: "Professional baseball player Gavin wants another chance with his wife, Thea, after she kicked him out of the house. She feels as though she's disappearing, between caring for their twin daughters on her own, and dealing with the expectations of the other team members' wives and girlfriends. Three Nashville Legend players sit Gavin down and convince him to face difficult and embarrassing truths about how he has ignored his wife's needs, including her sexual fulfillment. They reveal that they have found the perfect way to learn what women really want: read romance novels. They bring Gavin into their secret club so he can start over and successfully court his wife. There's plenty of humor in Adams' modern take on Cyrano de Bergerac, though both Gavin and Thea have to acknowledge their past mistakes and make changes before they can move forward. The supporting cast is as interesting as the struggling couple, including their precocious daughters, Thea's sister, and Gavin's clever friends. Readers will look forward to more books in the Bromance Book Club series after this promising start.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this heartfelt romance, a professional baseball player fights to save his failing marriage with the help of some good friends and the inspirational exploits of a fictional nobleman. When Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott's wife, Thea, informs him not only that she wants a divorce but that she has been faking orgasms for the three years of their marriage, he's devastated. Macho man Gavin is just desperate enough to take the advice of a secret book club made up of other athletes and powerful men who get relationship tips from romance novels. They instruct him to use a Regency romance, Courting the Countess, as a blueprint for starting over and wooing his wife properly. Gavin and Thea rekindle their relationship, one chapter at a time, while working through their individual issues. Adams (Seventh Inning Heat) weaves in humor, complex emotions, and excerpts from the motivational story itself to create a satisfying courtship. A strong supporting cast, including Gavin's book clubmates and his tiny, adorable twin daughters, helps flesh out the Legends community. This earnest charmer is sure to win Adams new fans.
