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.

Micky’s 3.5 star review
UNDERCOVER BROMANCE was everything light and fun. This was a quick and immersive read that made me smile, laugh but also made me want to dig a bit deeper.
If you read book one, you’ll recall Thea’s grouchy sister Liv. Liv was front and central to this book and I found her more human and slightly more approachable in this story. That said, Liv had all sharp corners with a bag on chips added; I did find her infuriating at times. Braden Mack, the Bromance Book Club ring leader was not quite so smooth and accomplished in this instalment and I found him fun and quite lovely.
“I don’t want a man. I don’t have time for a man. They’re needy, clingy and never keep their promises.”
I wanted Liv to give Mack a chance, I screamed it sometimes…
These two had epic banter, I lived for their dialogue and laughed through it. Those moments helped me with the frustration I felt over Liv.
I felt like the book club was a little more in the background in this one (sad face) but their use of The Protector was pretty hilarious. Hop and Rosie were great new character addition as was Randy the rooster. The cover is the cutest and I love it. I will definitely be picking up the third book in this series, I’ve seen who the protangonists are and I’m looking forward to their story.
Thank you to Headline Eternal for the early review copy.
