Isn't It Bromantic?
Isn't It Bromantic? | Lyssa Kay Adams
32 posts | 34 read | 14 to read
With his passion for romance novels, it was only a matter of time before Vlad took up the pen to write a novel the Bromance Book Club would swoon over. Elena Konnikova has lived her entire adult life in the shadows. As the daughter of a Russian journalist who mysteriously disappeared after speaking out against government corruption, she escaped danger the only way she knew how. She agreed to marry her childhood friend, Vladimir, and move to the United States, where he is a professional hockey player in Nashville. Vlad, aka The Russian, thought he could be content with his marriage of convenience. But after four years, it's become too difficult to continue in a one-sided relationship. He joined the Bromance Book Club to learn how to make his wife love him, but all he's learned is that he deserves more. He's ready to create his own sweeping romance--both on and off the page. The Bros are unwilling to let Vlad forgo true love--and this time they're not operating solo. They join forces with Vlad's senior citizen neighbors, a group of meddling widows who call themselves The Loners. Just when things finally look promising, the danger from Elena's past life intrudes, and the book club will face their first-ever life-or-death grand gesture as they race to a happy ever after.

Spending our Thanksgiving in Frankenmuth since my family and my husband‘s family are still in Iowa so it‘s just me, the husband, and our kiddo! Fine with me as I love spending time with just my little family and some good reads.

So I fell in love with Vlad in this book, but never quite warmed up to Elena 100%, but I like her a lot. Not my favorite in the series because I hate big misunderstandings. Also, the neighbor Claud was too much for me. Still, yay for Vlad! Glad he figured out his gluten intolerance 👍🏽

I have been loving this romance series and was so excited for Vlad to have his own book! It was very sweet, but I did end up feeling like there was no real conflict to overcome here.

Is this the last in Lyssa‘s fun romcom series? The Russian must woo his wife in the latest. The book club comes to the rescue with great advice. This is what men should aspire to and what they should be reading.

4 STARS - Isn't It Bromantic? is the 4th book in the popular Bromance Book Club series by Lyssa Kay Adams. It's got humour and heart and each book follows one of the men in this unusual book club. This time out Vlad 'The Russian' takes the lead! Oh happy day! I love this flatulent dude with a heart of gold.

4/5

I love this series, and was so excited for Vlad's book. Unlike the others in the series, the second romance novel interspersed throughout isn't just a book the book club's reading, but the romance novel Vlad is currently writing. This was a great romance and Elena and Vlad navigate what they really want out of their relationship.

Adams has made some interesting choices with the Russian in the earlier books so it was nice to finally see him as a full character. Very sweet second chance story.

I‘m so happy that the Russian got his own HEA story. All the feels. ❤️

As for #AwesomeAugust, I started the week off strong with 4 books in 4 days, then got derailed. This is book 5 but I still haven‘t finished my July #bookspin 🤷🏼‍♀️ Oh well. Maybe next readathon 😆

Andrew65 5 books is still a great total 👏👏👏 4mo

This was probably my favorite of the series. Vlad has been a standout character throughout the series and it‘s great to see his HEA with his mysterious wife. Though this is book 4 in the series, it does work as a standalone. Miscommunication is a big part of this book and it can verge on cringy, but it‘s worth reading through. 4⭐️ A free space for my #bookspinbingo #romantsy

Pretty cute romance story with miscommunication trope. It is a delightful and cheesy rom-com, but the execution felt schematic. The main characters felt like strangers around each other, not best friends since childhood.. This was an okay book!

CaroPi I loved the first book in the series. The second one was ok. Despite the fact that the topic of me too was mentioned. Not sure if I will read the next two 4mo

I want a cheese man. I want a Russian. I thought there would be more of a mob connection. I wanted more closure of her father‘s story at the end. But mostly I love the Russian.

The Russian has always seems to me to be quirky and sensitive but to get his full story was amazing. I think I like him the best. For this towering man to be this teddy bear who is just trying to do the right thing was enduring. He struggled was very real...having the best of intention but trying not to hurt the other person.

I loved this series and loved this book. I was so excited to hear that The Russian was getting his own book. This book didn‘t disappoint. I had so many laugh out loud moments while I listened to the audiobook. To the point my mom asked me what I was laughing about. I am so glad that Elena and Vlad finally communicated with each other and got their happily ever after. Can‘t wait to see who the next book is about!

wanderinglynn I can‘t wait to read it! I love this series. 💜 4mo

There is always a character in a series that readers MUST have a story for: The Russian is that character. A similar premise in that the Bromance book club must help Vlad in his relationship, but this books adds so many more amazing characters and an often unheard of relationship scenario. It was fun, tear inducing, and heartwarming. I think Vlad needs his own series 🤣😉

The latest in the Bromance Book Club series might be my favorite.

Vlad aka “The Russian,” married his childhood best friend to get her to the US where he plays professional hockey after her journalist father disappeared. Vlad has always hoped for more than a marriage of convenience, but Elana has finished her degree and will soon head back to Russia.

Can the guys help their friend capture the heart of the woman he loves before it‘s too late?

I love the Russian. He‘s been one of my favorite book clubbers and as soon as I realized that he was getting his own story - I preordered it immediately. It truly didn‘t disappoint. Elena and Vlad are so sweet. I loved so many of the small parts that were added (animals and new friendships specifically).

The second book might have been my favorite… but this one just may have taken the spot.

I loved it! I wasn't sure about The Russian as a leading character because he's been such a caricature throughout the series. However, Ms. Adams does such a wonderful job of fleshing out his character and as a result, I became highly invested in his love story. I also loved Elena even though some of her actions drove me batty. I hope Colton's book is next! And will we be seeing more of the Cheese Man?! Hope he's the newest bookclub member! 🧀😁

Booknerd2 I love this series! Thanks for posting!! I didn‘t know it was out. Just put it on hold at my library!!! 😜😎 4mo
