Book Review: Isn’t It Bromantic? by Lyssa Kay Adams

Title: Isn’t It Bromantic?

Author: Lyssa Kay Adams


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.


Rating: 4 out of 5.

This book was soo good. By far the best book in the entire series!

If you haven’t already heard about this, The Bromance Book Club series follows a group of guys who form a book club where they read romance novels in order to help them in their own relationships. In the fourth book, we follow Russian aka Vlad and his wife Elena.

Vlad and Elena have been married for six years but in reality, it’s all a big fraud because it’s a marriage of convenience. But Elena has had enough and has decided to break it up. However, after Vlad’s injury she feels obligated to stay and help him out at least for a little bit. And you already know how that goes…

I love the fact that all of the books in the series have different tropes: the first one is second chance romance, the second one enemies to lovers and this one friends to lovers as well as fake marriage. So there’s a bit of everything for every kind of reader.

This was by far my favorite book in the series because I enjoyed both Vlad and Elena and their chemistry. It didn’t feel rushed or forced, I absolutel, loved it.

Also, let me tell you something, this book has some amazing sex scenes. I am blushing even thinking of it lol.

I’m not sure if this is the last book in the series or if the author will be writing more but to me this was just enough and I don’t feel the connection or the need to read about other characters.

In conclusion, I loved this book. It was so cute and wholesome. A perfect romance!
