Romancing the Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Romancing the Nerd (Nerd #2)
Author:  Leah Rae Miller
Publisher:  Entangled Teen, 352 pages
Publication Date:  April 5, 2016

From Goodreads:
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.


Review:
After absolutely loving The Summer I Became a Nerd, I was so excited to read this one.  But it was just ok.  The romance was lacking for me and I actually didn't even like the main characters too much individually.  They acted really young and it was a bit simple for me.  

And why did everyone say "ya know" all the time?  Things like that normally don't bother me but every time I read that phrase I cringed.

  1. I keep hearing The Summer I Became A Nerd was so great and then people have been reviewing this one, and they're all pretty mediocre. I think I'm gonna skip this one.

  2. Oh bummer, I thought The Summer I became a Nerd was just okay so that does not give me high hopes about this one :( Thanks for the review though :)

  3. I'm just laughing at the weird drug comments above. Spam comments are the worst! I hate when you are super excited for a book and it disappoints. I also hate romance books where the characters act far too young. Sorry this didn't work for you :)

  4. Sounds cute. But I know what you mean. Sometimes in some books characters act in a way which makes me feel so old to read about them! And an overdose of ya know? Sounds... a little hard to take but I'm glad you enjoyed this book overall :)

  6. You don't have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your own ground. If you do, that shows how shaky your own position is.
