Isn’t It Bromantic?
The Bromance Book Club series continues with another meta love story packed with tropes, jokes, and … espionage. In the next chapter of The Bromance Book Club, Vlad (aka “The Russian”) finally gets his own love story. Vlad’s buddies think he has a happy marriage, but no one knows it’s truly one of convenience, entered into so Vlad’s childhood friend Elena could leave Russia after her journalist father was murdered. But after watching his friends find love, Vlad is no longer content to be a husband in name only. He wants love—and, using the romance novel he’s writing (!!) as a template, his friends are determined to help him capture his wife’s heart. This novel stands alone, but those familiar with the series will be privy to inside jokes galore and familiar characters who feel like real friends. Heads up for a few brief open door moments.
With his passion for romance novels, it was only a matter of time before Vlad wrote one.
Elena Konnikova has lived her entire adult life in the shadows. As the daughter of a Russian journalist who mysteriously disappeared, she escaped danger the only way she knew how: She married her childhood friend, Vladimir, and moved 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 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 neighbors, a group of meddling widows who call themselves the Loners. But just when things finally look promising, Elena’s past life intrudes and their happily ever after is cast into doubt.
