“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 by Rebekah Purdy is a too-cute-for-words romance about looking for love and finding it where you least expect it: right in front of your face.
To say I fell in love with The Romeo Club would be an understatement. I love all of these boys, from Delyla's brother Drake, to C.C. to Kevin. But I especially have to put in a good word for Trey. Seriously. Hottest. Geek. Ever. And it's even better because Delyla is an undercover geek herself sotheyarejustsocutetogether! Gah! Okay, mini fangirl rant over.
So, I really adored this story, if you couldn't tell. I'm always up for a girl falls in love with best friend/neighbor/brother's best friend... You get the picture. The Romeo Club was right up my alley. Delyla and Trey have known each other forever, but Delyla doesn't see Trey as anything more than her brother's best friend, even if she acknowledges his hotness. That is, of course, until the Romeo Club forces her to look at him in a different light, and that's when things get good.
There wasn't much I didn't enjoy about The Romeo Club, but I will list a few things that got left me wanting more. The writing structure is very bare bones, and I wish there'd been just a little more detail. The story was just too cute to really care, but I still think it could've benefitted from a little more meat added to it. There were also a couple of little plot holes I found myself wondering about at the end, but that could just be in the ARC I was reading.
Overall, the story was worth reading, even with the few small quirks I mentioned. If you're looking for a quick, fun read with loads of adorable guys, twists and turns, and geeky love, The Romeo Club is definitely for you.
