A hacktivist and a cat café owner decode the friend zone in this romantic comedy from the author of Undercover Bromance.

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.

Here’s the thing about Lyssa Kay Adams’ writing: She takes characters I either didn’t like or just didn’t care that much about from the previous book in a series and makes me fall in love with them. She did it in Undercover Bromance and again in Crazy Stupid Bromance.

Alexis and Noah were both characters that I just didn’t have much attachment to from the last book. Noah, I was slightly interested in based on his job and relationship with Mack, but I thought Alexis was just part of moving the last plot on. I was wrong! These two characters were very deserving of their own book. They made this friendship to relationship story so sweet. Their friendship was so supportive, and their chemistry was off the charts. To be honest, Alexis and Noah already seemed like they were in a relationship prior to actually being in one, so the transition was super smooth. I loved all their ups and downs and the direction the plot took. Crazy Stupid Bromance was another gem in this incredible series.

  1. I used to absolutely hate these type of series that focus on different characters each book, but I’ve come to appreciate them much more over the years. I like when ones you don’t expect to care about end up being great main characters. Great review!

  2. Psst, you have the author’s name wrong in your first sentence.
    I’m so glad you liked it. I really hate the title of this book and wish they would have chosen something else, but I enjoyed the book so much. Noah is one of my favorites. I thought this book was heavier than the previous ones too.

    1. Thanks… Don’t know how that happened. Must have been thinking Mary Kay Andrews. LOL. Thanks for letting me know!
      Yeah, the titles doesn’t really go, but it’s eye catching.

  3. I don’t care which characters she spotlights as long as she can keep finding stories in this world. I was intrigued by Alexis in the last book, however, Noah was very under the radar, but I knew Adams would make them fabulous.

    1. So true! Although, I really do want the Russian’s story. I feel another second chance romance coming on with that one…

      1. Maybe she will pair him with Mack’s manager (her name cannot be found in my head at the mo). I just get a feel for the two of them. I feel like she will be paired up with one of them at some point.

  4. I will be reading the first in this series for a prompt in the Popsugar Challenge. It is so nice to see that the series is still enjoyable in Book #3. I hope I enjoy it and will continue to read them. I have not read anything by this author, so hope to enjoy her writing.

      1. I just downloaded the first one in audiobook, the others are also available, to if I like it, then I will have the rest to listen to as well.
