Crazy Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams @lyssakayadams @eiden_andrew @PRHAudio

the setup…
Alexis Carlisle owns a cat café called ToeBeans and it skyrocketed in popularity when she stepped forward six months ago and accused former celebrity chef Royce Preston of sexual harassment. She and her friends connected to The Bromance Book Club helped to expose him. Noah Logan, Braden Mack’s tech expert, also helped and became a trusted and best friend to Alexis over the next months during the fallout. Their friendship is sacred between the two but Noah is now struggling with feelings far beyond the friend zone. Oh, and so is Alexis.

the heart of the story…
I was happy to see that Noah was at the center of this story as I found him intriguing in the last book, an air of mystery surrounding him. My instincts were right as he has a complicated past as a “hacktivist” dating back to his teenage years. He’s now reformed and owns a lucrative security company. I loved his friendship with Alexis as there was something endearing about it, treasured by both of them. Their concern about losing all of this by moving into an intimate relationship was well justified. Meanwhile, Alexis is facing another life changing challenge when she learns the identity of her father (she was raised by her now deceased single mother) and is faced with a host of family she never knew or wanted to know. This threatens to become a wedge between her and Noah as his suspicions and past become significant.

the narration…
I continue to love the narrator for this series as his female voices sound normal but he nails the men in The Bromance Book Club. You can hear all that wit and sarcasm and I’ve got strong images of them all.

the bottom line…
This is one of the best friends-to-lovers stories I’ve read in a long time. Alexis and Noah are well developed characters who you can’t help admiring and liking. Their journey to romance was compelling enough but the outside pressures from both of their families made it even more interesting. I’m not a fan of communication issues used as a device for conflict but here it was done well as both of them were committed to resolving them. And, The Bromance Book Club rises to the occasion again, bringing humor and “wisdom” to the mix. This story is special and my most favorite in the series to date.
