Blog Tour Review feat Giveaway: The Romeo Club by Rebekah L. Purdy


The Romeo Clubby Rebekah L PurdyRelease Date: 03/25/14YA CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE 

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.

The Romeo Club is a cute story about a beautiful girl who finds herself helping out her nerdy brother and his equally nerdy friends, find out ways to walk, talk and act around girls. Delyla wants the perfect dress when she goes to prom, only problem is, is the dress is wayyy out of her price range. Enter the nerd herd. They want dates and to have a total body make over to make that happen. Best part is, they're willing to pay!

The boys all make up lists of what kind of girl they want while Lyla works her magic on making it all happen. First things first: new clothes and haircuts. 

Along the way Lyla starts noticing Trey in ither ways than her brother's best friend. She has a boyfriend though. A super hot all around athlete type boyfriend. Why in the world would she leave him, am I right? Wrong. I found him quite cliche and boring. I was Team Trey all the way!

The plot is adorkable at its best. I loved the idea begins everything and it was just an all around feel good book. I sometimes need those because I read so many dark and/or depressing books. The way everything plays out is clever. Delyla and gang will grab onto your heart strings and won't let go. 

A light-hearted warm read; The Romeo Club will leave you giggling and maybe wanting a nerd ofyour own. After all, there's a little bit if nerd in all of us!
