“His brain knew the right answers, but his brain wasn’t in charge. His heart was. With Alexis , it always would be. So it was his heart that pulled her to straddle his lap. His heart that wove his fingers in her hair. And when her lips nudged his— once, twice, not so much a kiss as a question— it was his heart that answered. At long last, yes.”
Lyssa Kay Adams is a pure genius! This woman can do no wrong with romance, her Bromance Book Club series is by far the best romcom series I have read to date and they keep getting better with each book! Crazy Stupid Bromance was a brilliant read, one that I did not want to end. I loved the easy going nature of Noah and Alexis relationship and how comfortable they were with leaning on each other, this only made leading into their relationship more organic.
“God, I love you.”“I know. And I love you too. I’ve loved you since the day I met you, and I will love you until the day I die. You are my best friend, Noah Logan. Forever.”
I have to say I really liked that Alexis was a strong female and not one that was all woo me. I loved that she wanted to create a safe place for other survivors and that even though she knew nothing of her father and his family she was still so selfless. As for our hero I absolutely loved Noah, I loved getting to see him get over his own past trauma and pain and grow from that and use it to become a better man. Once again I have to say Adam’s does a brilliant job at touching on very relevant issues that many face in their lives.
“The happy trail is like catnip for women.” Noah gaped at him. “The happy what?” The Russian lifted his shirt and pointed to his stomach. “The line of hair from your belly button to your pork and beans.” Mack leaned left to whisper, “Frank and beans.” The Russian looked baffled. “Who is Frank?”
Though I do have to say the star if this novel hands down goes to beefcake the grouchy cat and the boys of the Bromance Book Club, especially the Russian. I am a huge cat lover myself so I was very taken with the idea of ToeBeans café and all the cute kitties. Now on the Bromance boys; let’s just take a moment to appreciate how cute it was watching this group of big burly men planning this dream princess wedding!
Please do yourself the favor of reading not only Crazy Stupid Bromance but the entire series, every romance lover needs these books in their lives! I can not wait to see what Adams has planned for with the Russians story, one thing I do know is that it will be brilliant!
