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 super cute match making book. Perfect for lounging by the pool or on the beach. Delyla helps her brother get a new look and the confidence to ask out his popular crush and it works like a charm. Suddenly his three geeky friends all want help from his younger, but popular sister. Delyla needs money to buy a prom dress so she quickly starts up the Romeo Club to help out her brothers geeky friends who have never been kissed or even asked a girl out. But Delyla is convinced that with the right clothes and some romeo lessons that she can land each of them their crushes.
I really liked getting to know each of the three guys. They were hilarious and adorable. Delyla is like one of the guys too. She gets along great with her brother and all of his friends because she is secretly a huge dork too. She loves playing all kinds of video games, but people at school don’t know about that because she is dating a popular jock and she is a soccer jock herself. I liked how she didn’t fit into any of the high school stereotype boxes. She was smart, played sports and was a huge gamer.
Throughout the romeo club Delyla starts to get closer and closer to one of the guys. The book is a little predictable but it was satisfying because what you want to happen, does happen. I liked that. If it was full of huge twists and turns, then I probably wouldn’t have gotten the outcome that I wanted from the start. The Romeo Club is a funny and super cute romantic read. It is a feel good book that I think is a perfect spring or summer beach read.
Rebekah Purdy grew up in Michigan, where she spent many late nights armed with a good book and a flashlight. When not hiding at her computer and getting lost in her stories, she enjoys reading, singing, soccer, swimming, football, camping, playing video games and hanging out with her kids. She loves the unexplainable like Bigfoot, the Dogman, and the Loch Ness Monster (lots of good story material)! She admits to still having all the books she bought throughout her childhood and teen years, and she may or may not have an obsession with anything chocolate…
