Rate: Enjoyed it+ (4,5 stars)

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 one of those sweet romances involving hot and funny nerds that end up stealing our hearts. This YA contemporary romance stole my heart and had my full attention from the very first page and left me with a big, goofy smile after finishing it. To me, this book would perfectly be in my Summer Reads category. Meaning, that this is the perfect read for this summer.

The Romeo Club starts with Delyla's brother asking for a make over to her sister in order to have the courage to ask the girl he likes out. Due to the success of Delyla's makeover, she ends up with three more boys, friends of her brother, who also wants a makeover. The Nerd Herd is a difficult group to work with, but if that means that Delyla can have her dreamed dress... why not?
However, things get a little bit more complicated when she can't say about The Romeo Club to her boyfriend, Rex. Avoiding him was one thing. But when she starts to feel more than friends with her neighbor, Trey, also her brother's best friend, things just start to get messy.

My favorite characters were The Nerd Herd. C. C. was hilarious. He's the typical friend that is always saying nasty things in a nerdy and innocent way. Like he's a heartbreaker, everyone knows it, but they are too afraid to go with him. I had a smile on my face every time he said something to Delyla.  Kevin's the shy one, but also the more reasonable. And Trey's the boy next door. The typical nerd that you don't see at first as more than a friend, until you start noticing him and realize how hot he is. And not only that. He and Delyla had liked the same things and were super cute together. Far more than Delyla and Rex. Drake, Delyla's brother, cannot be count into the Nerd Herd, since he got his girl on the first page of the story and after that he was seen as way more "cool" than the three other guys. Although he was a good brother and an awesome guy.

The relationship between Delyla and Trey is one of those relationships who the two characters are comfortable with each other. They like the same dorky things and they care for each other. They had some attraction from the very first page and that was palpable. I liked how their relationship changes completely throughout the story.

I had to admit that sabotaging Trey's date was something I didn't like. However, I could understand that If you like someone, sometimes you tend to do some mistakes. 

There's drama, there's romance and there're some cute, funny and lovable nerds. I loved every single chapter in the story and I even suffered with the main character at the end of the book. I highly recommend this book to those readers who like adorkable YA romances filled with hot nerds that make the story interesting, funny and worth reading about.
With a beautiful and swoony ending and an amazing plot, Rebekah L. Purdy wrote a YA contemporary romance that you won't like to miss. Give a chance to Delyla and her techniques to get a date to every single nerd! And if you are a boy, you can even get some tips!
