Bestselling author Lyssa Kay Adams returns to the world of the Bromance Book Club, this time featuring a marriage of convenience romance. Starring one of the fandom’s favorite characters, The Russian, Isn’t It Bromantic? showcases the best of Adams storytelling skills and further shows how brilliant this series is.
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.
Holy goodness gracious was this book effing amazing! Just when I thought this series couldn't get any better, it got better. Believe me when I say that I loved this book so much that it might be a contender for my favorite book of 2021!
There was not a single thing I didn’t love about this book: the characters (both old and new) were so complex and added so much to the plot; the plot itself highlighted the best of what a romcom has to offer yet felt refreshing and modern; and both the steamy moments and the funny moments were golden in terms of their placement in the story.
Readers also get the little snippets of “book within a book” like Bromance Book Club had which adds even more depth to this story. The parallels drawn between Vlad and Elena’s story and Promise Me (the book Vlad is writing) shows how masterful a writer Adams is.
This book is seriously addictive (I think I binge-read it in like 6 hours) and I am itching to see if and how Adams will continue with this series because I don’t think I could bear it if this series were to end. If you haven’t read this book series yet then I really don’t know what you're waiting for because you are sorely missing out!
