It’s the start of a new week and I am feeling pretty good after the weekend. I started a project Friday night that I’d been putting off: sorting, tossing and organizing ALL of my photo albums, cards, and any other “memory”-related item in my apartment.
It’s one of those projects that I didn’t think would take a long time, but it took me ALL weekend. But, I also watched Hallmark Christmas movies while I did it, so it was pretty enjoyable. I’ll share more on this project in a later post, in case you’re wanting to do your own photo organizing project.
But, let’s get into the latest read from Blanche’s Book Club: “Undercover Bromance” by Lyssa Kay Adams. Here’s the scoop:
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.
This is book two in the Bromance Bookclub series; I read the first book (“The Bromance Bookclub“) in the spring and I loved it. This book was less about the actual bookclub, though, which was a little disappointing.
However, the writing is always good and the plot keeps things moving — I read this in a single sitting.
This book fit in as a good “book two”, although you could read it without having read the first book. I enjoyed this one because of its foodie-plot and there were several parts of it that I found to be true having worked in the food industry.
I’d definitely recommend this one if you’re into contemporary romance! There’s a book three coming — “Crazy Stupid Bromance” — October 27th of this year, so you have plenty of time to read up!
The next book Blanche’s Book Club will be reading is “The Mothers” by Brit Bennett.
