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.

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



In the last book we got a better look at Alexis and Noah. They were both background characters that you knew were on the verge of having their story told. However, I had no clue that their stories would involve each other. We kind of only meet Noah briefly in the last book, and as far as I remember, him and Alexis didn’t know each other. In this book, they’ve met, and have become best friends since the last book. While I would have liked to have been witness to their building friendship, it was nice to see these two go from best friends to lovers without all the extra build-up time.

While this story does take place in both POV’s, this is ultimately Alexis’ story. A lot of it focuses on her finding her biological father and the uncertainty of trying to connect with him and his family. While her and her mother were struggling, he was running a company with a wife and two kids, in a beautiful home. So, it’s safe to say that not only does she have a lot to digest, but so does the other family.

I did enjoy the fact that these two already had an existing friendship before this book starts. It allowed for the characters to shine and be comfortable with each other, instead of that awkward build up. These two are very close, and that shows throughout the entire story. I also liked that we followed Noah while he hung out with the guys. It’s clear that he’s still getting comfortable with them, but these guys have his back no matter what. I think the best part of the whole book was when they go to a spa for a massage, and immediately start panicking because they have no clue what to do. Do they get naked? Do they shower first? What if they get a woody? These guys were in the locker room straight up panicking over what to do, that it was hard not to laugh out loud.

This is a fun series to read. I love that we get both POVs. Not only does that help better understand both characters, but it’s just interesting to see the guys go to their bromance book club meetings. Let’s just say when these guys get together, it’s never a dull moment. I look forward to seeing who’s next on the chopping block.
