Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all? Well, I hope.
Do any of my fellow reviewers ever have a problem with reviewing the second book in a series? I feel like I’m going to give away major spoilers for book 1 while writing review for book 2. I always try not to but before hand I get nervous that that is exactly why I put them off for so long.
And I’ve been putting off my review of Undercover Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams a really long time. But maybe it’s time I finally write this thing?
Date published: 10th March 2020
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Fiction, Adult
Where to begin? Where to begin? It’s not often that you see heavy issues discussed and dealt with in such a light hearted romance, but Adams manages to do it every time. Sexual harassment is not something I’ve come across very often in romance and when I have seen it before one male, maybe two, mainly the male protagonist gets all upset about it and they only try to help their girl and the effect falls a little flat. But with this, Liz isn’t the victim so the story has to be told a little differently.
Mack supports Liz in all she wants to do and even helps her along the way and gets the Bromance Book Club involved (did you expect to never see them again?). Gavin and Mack are up to their usual antagonism and the Russian is his usual lactose intolerant self. And they hold each other accountable. Or rather than just each other they think that all men should hold all other men accountable. If you let one slip then you give the whole group a bad name. This came across really strong in the book.
Now down to favourite characters.
Mack. He’s top of my list. He was one of my favourite characters in the last book and he is definitely one of my favourite characters in this book. Can I have a man like Braden Mack? If I’m honest I’m slightly sad to see him get his happy ending so soon. I would have love to see him give his single man sage advice to so many more new Book Club members but now he is happily taken.
The book has introduced to us many new characters, including a very horny cockerel, hopefully some of whom we will see happily settled down in future books? Maybe even the chicken?
Anyone in need of a good summer read, or even a (virtual) beach read this summer should definitely reach for this series and I can’t wait till book three comes out this October.
