Book Tour: The Romeo Club

The Romeo Club
by Rebekah L Purdy
Release Date: 03/25/14

Summary from Goodreads:
THE ROMEO CLUB is Hitch meets The Secret of My Success.

What happens when you agree to help your brother “de-nerdify” so he can catch the attention of the popular Chloe Anders, and to everyone's surprise, he actually lands her?

And what if his equally geeky friends come running with girl wish lists of their own, offering money for your services?

Well, if you’re sixteen-year-old, Delyla Denson, then you start The Romeo Club. A secret club where she’ll teach these guys how talk, act, and be cool around girls. It’s a win-win situation.

She’ll get enough money for the awesome prom dress she’s had her eye on, and the guys, well, they’ll get dates and maybe learn how to do something other than beat the next level on their video games.

There are only two problems with this plan. One, her quarterback/track star boyfriend is getting jealous of how much time she’s spending away from him and decides to try and figure out what’s going on. And two, Delyla is kind of falling for her brother’s BFF, Trey who she’s been hanging out with a lot more. And who thanks to her help, has caught the attention of the beautiful, perfect, and popular, Portia Rickard. With Portia and Trey heating up, Delyla realizes that maybe the person she’s meant to be with has been in front of her all this time.

But falling for Trey means she’ll have to take drastic measures including sabotage, with a capital S.

My Review

What a cute, feel-good story! What high school girl hasn't thought of making over a nerd into a hottie. I think what made The Romeo Club special was that Delyla was already friends with these guys. And in the end, they taught her more about being true to herself than she taught them. 
For the first time, I wondered if maybe they should be giving me lessons in how not be shallow, or better yet, how to embrace showing off my inner nerd.
This was a fast paced read with some fun, quirky characters! I love a story with a happy ending! Both Delyla and Trey made some wrong choices, but in the end true love prevailed!

I’d finally found my Romeo. And he was a giant nerd. But I was okay with that. Because in truth, I was one too.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars! I really enjoyed the message of this book - don't be afraid to be yourself!
