.:: Book Blitz :: The Romeo Club + Sorteo

¡Buenos días! ♥

Ya es miércoles, la Semana Santa cada vez está más cerca (y por desgracia también los exámenes finales >_<), empieza a hacer buen tiempo -a ver cuánto dura- y esas cosillas buenas. Así que... hoy os traigo otro Book Blitz de un libro que pinta interesante:

Título: The Romeo Club
Autora: Rebekah L Purdy
Fecha de publicación: 25 de marzo del 2014
Géneros: Juvenil, Contemporáneo, Romance

Sinopsis

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.

¿Qué ocurre cuando accedes a ayudar a tu hermano a "dejar de ser un friki" para que consiga captar la atención de la popular Chloe Anders y, sorprendiendo a todos, lo consigue? ¿Y qué ocurre si sus amigos, igual de frikis que él, van corriendo a donde ti con listas de chicas y ofreciéndote dinero por tus servicios?

Bueno, si eres Delyla Denson, de dieciséis años, entonces abrirás El Club Romeo. Un club secreto donde enseñará a estos chicos a hablar, actuar y ser atractivo con las chicas. Es una situación en la que todos salen ganando.

Ella conseguirá dinero para el increíble vestido de promoción que le gusta; y los chicos... bueno, ellos conseguirán citas y tal vez aprender a hacer algo además de superar el siguiente nivel del videojuego que les gusta.

Solo hay dos pegas en este plan. Una: su novio quaterback/estrella de atletismo está empezando a ponerse celoso de la cantidad de tiempo que está pasando si él y decide intentar adivinar qué está pasando. Y dos: Delyla está empezando a enamorarse del mejor amigo de su hermano, Trey, con quien está empezando a pasar mucho más tiempo. Y quien gracias a su ayuda, ha captado la atención de la preciosa, perfecta y popular Portia Rickard. Con Portia y Trey calentando motores, Delyla se da cuenta de que, tal vez, la persona perfecta para ella estuvo siempre delante de sus narices.

Pero enamorarse de Trey significa que ella tendrá que tomar medidas drásticas, inluyendo el sabotage... con S mayúscula.

Extracto

Video game explosions sounded from the family room downstairs, followed by several voices. Great. My brother’s friends, otherwise known as The Nerd Herd were here. Not that I should be surprised. They probably spent the better half of their lives in my basement.
“Please tell me someone didn’t eat the last slice of cheesecake?” I hollered as I tossed my bag on the kitchen floor and searched the fridge.
“Sorry,” C.C. yelled. “But I was hungry.”
Ugh. Of course it was him. C.C. Porter IV, whose real name was Clyde Cornelius. I ought to take his red afro and use it to mop up Jimbo’s grossness from our lawn gnome.
“Seriously? You guys are pigs.” With a groan, I stomped downstairs to find all four guys seated in front of the TV, game controllers in hand. “I thought I told you yesterday, the cheesecake is off limits.”
C.C. grinned, his mop of red curls poofed up like five small poodles taking cover on his head. “Aw, does that mean you’re gonna punish me? Because I could use a spanking.” He stretched his long legs out in front of him.
My brother shot him a quick look and mouthed the words don’t start.
“Yeah, come on over here, because I think I’ve got a foot I can shove up your ass.” My eyes narrowed.
“Okay, how about we talk about something else before this turns into World War Delyla.” Trey, Drake’s best friend intervened.
“He’s right.” My brother flipped off the video game. The other three muttered obscenities and whined. “Besides, I need to talk with her about a few things.” He glanced at them as if threatening bodily harm to the next one who opened their mouth.
I moved closer to the stone fireplace at the back of the room, careful not to bump into the mantel where my dad’s antique toy trucks were displayed. Uneasiness settled over me as my shoes sunk into the plush, burgundy carpet. What the heck was going on? My gaze rested on Trey who, even I admitted, was kind of hot—in a nerdy way. Dark brown hair, blue eyes that made you envision summer pools and all that Shakespearean stuff. Not that I’d tell him of course. We’d grown up next door to one another and he, Drake, and I had been best buds since they were two and I was one. We practically lived at one another’s houses.
The Nerd Herd grew quiet as they stared at me. “Okay, you guys are weirding me out. What’s going on?”
“I want a cross between Princess Leia and Wonder Woman,” C.C. blurted.
At the same time, Kevin said, “Maybe someone like the chick from Dark Invaders IV.”
“Um—hold on, what are you guys talking about?”
“Quiet down.” Drake held up his hands then turned to me. “Here’s the thing. I kind of told them about you helping me land Chloe.”
“I thought you wanted to keep it a secret.”
“Yeah, about that.” He gave me a sheepish smile.
Oh hell. What did he do? “Drake?”
“All right. They want you to help them out too. I mean, you did such a good job with me. Besides, you’re already popular and have an in. You could teach them the ropes.”
“Whoa. Are you crazy? How am I supposed to do that? Besides they want some Princess Leia, Wonder Woman, and a Battle Worn hybrid. And in case you didn’t realize, this is reality.” Holy balls. This wasn’t quite what I expected when my brother said he had something important to discuss. Because on my scale of one to important this ranked like a negative ten.

¿Qué os parece? ¿Conocías el libro?

Qué queréis que os diga, la trama es muy tópica y promete ser un libro no demasiado épico, pero si os gustan las lectura juveniles ligeritas, divertidas y románticas, este libro promete ser una opción perfecta. Y es que ¿a quién no le apetecen estos libros de vez en cuando?

Y si no... ¿quién no quiere 10$ por la cara? ;D
