Detailed book overview
Bromance Book Club
The first rule of book club: You don't talk about book club.
Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott's marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him.
Welcome to the Bromance Book Club.
Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville's top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage. But it'll take a lot more than flowery words and grand gestures for this hapless Romeo to find his inner hero and win back the trust of his wife.
Braden Mack thinks reading romance novels makes him an expert in love, but he’ll soon discover that real life is better than fiction.
Liv Papandreas has a dream job as a sous chef at Nashville’s hottest restaurant. Too bad the celebrity chef owner is less than charming behind kitchen doors. After she catches him harassing a young hostess, she confronts him and gets fired. Liv vows revenge, but she’ll need assistance to take on the powerful chef.
Unfortunately, that means turning to Braden Mack. When Liv’s blackballed from the restaurant scene, the charismatic nightclub entrepreneur offers to help expose her ex-boss, but she is suspicious of his motives. He’ll need to call in reinforcements: the Bromance Book Club.
Inspired by the romantic suspense novel they’re reading, the book club assists Liv in setting up a sting operation to take down the chef. But they’re just as eager to help Mack figure out the way to Liv’s heart...even though she’s determined to squelch the sparks between them before she gets burned.
A hacktivist and a cat café owner decode the friend zone.
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.
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.
'Tis the season for a Bromance Book Club matchmaking mission! This time, they're pulling out the mistletoe for everyone's favorite country music star, Colton, and his second chance at love.
Country music’s golden boy Colton Wheeler felt the most perfect harmony when he was with Gretchen Winthrop. But for her, it was a love him and leave him situation. A year later, Colton is struggling to push his music forward in a new direction. If it weren’t about to be the most magical time of year and the support of the Bromance Book Club, he’d be wallowing in self-pity.
It’s hard for immigration attorney Gretchen not to feel a little Scrooge-ish about the excess of Christmas when her clients are scrambling to afford their rent. So when her estranged, wealthy family reaches out with an offer that will allow her to better serve the community, she’s unable to say no. She just needs to convince Colton to be the new face of her family’s whiskey brand. No big deal…
Colton agrees to consider Gretchen’s offer in exchange for three dates before Christmas. With the help of the Bromance Book Club, Colton throws himself into the task of proving to her there’s a spark between them. But Gretchen and Colton will both need to overcome the ghosts of Christmas past to build a future together.
Long Ball Boys
One more summer.
That’s all 21-year-old Bree McTavish has left until she’ll finally have enough money to get out of her seaside hometown where the only thing more famous than the rolling sand dunes dotting the shoreline are the Silver Lake Sluggers.
Every June, the nation’s top college baseball players descend on her tiny Michigan town to chase their big-time dreams in front of fans and Major League scouts. And every August, they leave behind a trail of broken hearts and mysterious stains in the bedrooms of the boarding house where Bree works as a cook to hone her skills for culinary school.
Bree hates summer. Hates baseball. Hates this tiny town.
If only she could hate him.
One more chance.
Jax Tanner knows this is it—one last season of summer ball before his dreams of being a Major League draft pick dry up and scatter in the wind like the dunes of Silver Lake. Once a Top 20 prospect, he’s now a wait-and-see thanks to a shoulder injury. If he doesn’t literally hit a homerun—lots of them—the only baseball in his future might be the community rec team sponsored by his family’s hardware chain.
But baseball isn’t Jax’s only unfinished business in Silver Lake. There’s also her. Bree McTavish. The sexy-as-hell girl who cooks for the team has bunted his every attempt at finding her sweet spot again after a hot night on the beach two years ago. He has no idea what scared her off, but he’s not leaving until he finds out.
It’s time for a new game plan.
And Jax has never met a change-up he couldn’t knock out of the park.
One hot prospect
When a grand-slam of a secret is revealed, Bree realizes the only person she can fully trust is Jax. But when new opportunities arise, old fears intrude again. Can she learn to love the game, or will she lose her one hot prospect for true love when the Long Ball Boys pack up and leave with summer’s end?
Love at the Games
A WILD LONGING...
Ever Beckinsale is as competitive as any other athlete in Rio, but the American equestrian has at least one more reason than most for pursuing gold. If she can win, she'll finally have the leverage she needs to live her life on her own terms and escape the stifling expectations of being the daughter of one of America's richest families. But she'll still have one last unfulfilled dream - finding the mysterious stranger who showed her an unexpected kindness two years ago.
A WILD DESIRE...
Irish boxer Padraig O'Callahan prides himself on being able to size people up in a glance, so it shakes him to the core when he discovers that the mystery woman who stole his heart two years ago in Ireland is not only an athlete in Rio, she's also a bona fide heiress. That makes her one hundred percent off-limits in his book.
The last thing he needs distracting him from winning the gold is a spoiled little rich girl who apparently conned him into believing she needed his help. But as soon as he pushes Ever away, he realizes his mistake. There's more to her than meets the eye, and he wants her body and soul.
A WILD LOVE...
When an unexpected encounter turns into an unforgettable night, can Padraig convince the skittish Ever to take a chance on him? Or will winning the gold mean losing a chance at one wild love?
He's a coach. She's a player. Things are getting hotter in Vegas...

When they tell him they’re bringing in a new pitching coach to tweak his technique, he grits his teeth and agrees to be coached like a Little Leaguer again. He has sacrificed everything for his career and will do whatever it takes to save it. Until they tell him who the new coach is.
Her career is finally taking off.
Nicki Bates has worked her entire life to achieve one goal—to land a top coaching job in the Majors. But when she finally gets the call she’s been waiting for, she realizes Fate has a sick sense of humor. The only team willing to take a chance on her is Eric Weaver’s? Seven years ago, he dumped her cold when the Aces called him up from the minor leagues, and she vowed then she would never let something like love distract her from her goals again.
But when secrets from the past are revealed, the lingering sparks between them reignite into a fiery passion neither can ignore. Will the heat destroy everything they’ve worked for? Or will a second chance at love prove the greatest victory of all?
