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

This can be summed up in one word:  CUTE!!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters grabbed me from the moment I started to read.  It was hysterically funny. I laughed harder than I have in a long time. Some of the things those guys say to her as she coaches them on being boyfriend material would give even the most patient person a need to hurt them!

As you watch Delyla begin to fall for Trey, it's sweet, cute, and adorable. You watch Delyla start to become more herself - the nerd she hides from everyone - and finds herself more and more comfortable in her own skin. It's quite heartwarming!

I would recommend this read to anyone who enjoys a good laugh.

I'd give this book 4.5 stars.
