Sorry if you have already seen this post! I didn’t mean to publish it 😦
This is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine (http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com.au/) where we show off books we are eagerly anticipating!
My pick for this week is…
The Romeo Club by Rebekah L. Purdy
Publication date: March 25th 2014
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.
Why am I waiting?
If you have read the synopsis, the chances are that you know why I am waiting. It sounds SO good! I have a soft spot for books like this in my bookish heart.
Please, leave me a link to your WoW posts in the comments!
