A hacktivist and a cat café owner decode the friend zone in this romantic comedy from the author of Undercover Bromance. Alexis Carlisle and her cat café, ToeBeans, have shot to fame after she came forward as a victim of a celebrity chef’s sexual harassment. When a new customer approaches to confide in her, the last thing Alexis expects is for the woman to claim they’re sisters. Unsure what to do, Alexis turns to the only man she trusts—her best friend, Noah Logan. Computer genius Noah left his rebellious teenage hacker past behind to become a computer security expert. Now he only uses his old skills for the right cause. But Noah’s got a secret: He’s madly in love with Alexis. When she asks for his help, he wonders if the timing will ever be right to confess his crush. Noah’s pals in The Bromance Book Club are more than willing to share their beloved “manuals” to help him go from bud to boyfriend. But he must decide if telling the truth is worth risking the best friendship he’s ever had.

Crazy Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams
Crazy Stupid Bromance, the 3rd Bromance Book Club book by Lyssa Kay Adams.
As a friends to lovers romance this book has so much to offer.
Alexis is grappling with family members she never knew she had. And if that wasn’t enough, they are asking for a big favor. She has to see her way through loss, grief, and forgiveness while wanting to move her friendship with Noah to another level.
Noah needs to come to terms with his father’s death which is a key to progressing his deep friendship with Alexis into a love story. That’s where to Bromance Book Club rides in to help. They help Noah realize the difference between being a real man and being a good man.
I love how Adams revisits old members of the book club along with introducing new members.
The feminist ideas spoken by the book club members are so thoughtful and thought provoking and are always spot on.
The scenes where the book club goes to a spa for bachelor party pampering and when they try to help “groomzilla” Mack with his reception seating chart are so endearing.
I have enjoyed reading all the books in The Bromance Book Club series which is full of humor, friendships, and enlightening dialogue.
Noah Logan has a secret….he has been in love with Alexis Carlisle, his best friend, since the day he met her 18 months ago. Since Alexis is trying to deal with the workplace sexual harassment she had encountered from her old boss, Noah never felt the time was right to tell her how he really felt. Plus there is always the chance that he could ruin their friendship. Enter the Bromance Book Club guys to the rescue! This group of guys who read romance books to help them navigate through life with women know just how to help.
When Alexis is approached by a young woman who informs her that she is her half sister, it throws Alexis into a tailspin. Alexis then does what she usually does, turns to Noah for help. As Alexis and Noah spend even more time together, feelings start to get stronger. Turns out Alexis has also been pining for Noah. Noah and Alexis finally come together in such a great and fun way. When it looks like they are headed for their happy ending, Alexis’ new family comes crashing in, along with Noah’s past and it makes a mess out of everything. Good thing the Bromance guys are there to help so Alexis and Noah do finally get their perfect happy ending.
I just adored both Alexis and Noah. They both were damaged by things from their past but together found a way past it. I really loved the journey these two had to go through. I also just adored the Bromance guys. I found myself laughing a lot while reading this story. I really can’t wait for The Russian’s story!
