Romancing the Nerd Giveaway & Review

Title: Romancing the Nerd
Author: Leah Rae Miller
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Goodreads Summary:
Dan Garrett has become exactly what he hates—popular. Until recently, he was just another live-action role-playing (LARP) geek on the lowest run of the social ladder. Cue a massive growth spurt and an uncanny skill at taking three-point shots in basketball and voila…Mr. Popular. It’s definitely weird.
And the biggest drawback? Going from high school zero to basketball hero cost Dan the secret girl-of-his-dorky dreams.
A tuba-playing nerd with an eclectic fashion sense, Zelda Potts’s “Coolness” stat is about minus forty-two. Dan turning his back on her and the rest of nerd-dom was brutal enough, but when he humiliates her at school, Zelda decides it’s time for a little revenge—dork style. Nevermind that she used to have a crush on him. Nevermind that her plan could backfire big time.
It’s time to roll the dice…and hope like freakin’ hell she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.

Gabrielle's Review:
The book starts out with Dan explaining why he hates being popular when he used to be king of the nerds. Zelda starts out explaining why she hates Dan's guts after he turned popular. His ditching her, insulting her to other people, and the thing that threw her over the edge was he accidentally threw a basketball at her face. She then comes up with a plan to reveal him for who he really was: a jerk.
She creates a new identity and tries to get him to dish out secrets so she can use them against him. But as time goes on, she slowly realizes he's still the same guy, only now he's super hot and plays basketball.
This is a great book about accepting people for who they are and realizing that everyone in high school just wants to belong. I was sucked in by all the awesome nerdiness that I could relate to.  The only part of the book I didn't like was how much Zelda kept changing her mind about liking him and hating him BUT it was such a great read. I couldn't stop reading it. I read it even while I ate because I could not stop. I devoured it.
