Anyone who can last in a Royce Preston restaurant can write their own ticket in the culinary world, so Liv Papandreas is determined to keep her job at the celebrity chef’s restaurant for one more year. But when she catches her boss harassing an employee, she’s fired and blacklisted from the Nashville restaurant scene. Not one for giving up, she accepts the help of nemesis Braden Mack and his Bromance Book Club, whose members use the strategies of romantic suspense to expose her powerful ex-boss. In the process, prickly Liv and confident Braden experience some scorching chemistry and the book club’s matchmaking attempts. The main romance is supported by an eccentric group of secondary characters, including a farm-owning activist named Rosie, a Russian hockey player with gastrointestinal problems, and an amorous rooster named Randy.
VERDICT Adams’s latest (The Bromance Book Club) combines humorous elements that balance the heavier themes of workplace harassment, resulting in a fast-paced romance that offers both laughs and greater social relevance.
