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.

Who would play my characters if The Romeo Club became a movie or TV show—also short excerpt


I think all writers have an idea of what actors/actresses could play their characters if there was ever a movie or TV show made based on their book(s). It’s something we all dream about. I think it’s fun as a reader to go through sites like IMDB and pick out people I think would work for books I read and or write.

So here’s my short list of who I think would be cool to see in a production The Romeo Club:

                                                                  Delyla Denson:   Dove Cameron
                                                                  Drake Denson:   Luke Benward
                                                                  C.C. Porter IV:   Calum Worthy
                                                                  Trey Garrett:  Robert Sheehan
                                                                  Kenadi Green:  China McClain
                                                                  Kevin Myer:  Atticus Mitchell
                                                                  Portia Rickard:  Lucy Hale
                                                                  Rex Tallac:  Alexander Ludwig
                                                                  Chloe Anders:  Bella Thorne


                                                                                ***EXCERPT***

C.C’s station wagon bounced over the potholes as he took the curve too fast, sending me sliding into Trey, who sat beside me in the backseat.
“Geez, are you trying to kill us?” I attempted to reposition myself, thankful that I had a seatbelt. The, circa 1960, car smelled like his dad’s spicy aftershave. The olive green interior reminded me of baby crap and squashed peas. Not a great combo. But he’d volunteered to drive, which saved the rest of us gas money. Although, at the moment, I regretted not footing the bill and taking my car, if only to prolong my life an extra day.
“You can walk if you want,” C.C. said. “Or maybe you’d like to come sit on my lap and help me steer.” He grinned in the rearview mirror.
“I know where I’m about ready to shove that stick shift,” I said.
Trey nudged me. “Do you really want to go there?”
“Good point.”
At last, the mall came into view. The most glorious thing I’d seen in the last half hour. C.C. slowed down and attempted to pull his boat of a car into a narrow space.
“We’re not gonna fit,” Drake said from the passenger seat.
My fingers dug into the seat as I braced myself for the worst. Please don’t let us crash.
“Yes, we will. Besides, I don’t want to have to park in the back lot. You know how far of a walk that is?” C.C. attempted to cram the station wagon in. When he realized how close we were, he backed up and tried again. This time he managed to get between the yellow lines.
Trey opened his door a crack and that was as wide as he could get it. “Um—was it your intention to hold us hostage in your car?”
C.C. threw his door open, hitting the car next to us. But he couldn’t squeeze out.
“Okay, everyone will have to crawl out the back tailgate door,” he said.
“Or we could find another spot,” I said.
When C.C. made no move to start the car, I sighed, undid my seatbelt, then spun in my seat and crawled over. With my midsection up in the air, I felt something hit my butt.
“Ow, watch it,” C.C. said.
“That better not have been your hand.” I glanced over my shoulder to see his head by my backside.
“Nope, it was his face.” Drake laughed. “Now would be a great time to let one rip.”
I hurried over the seat and landed in the back with a thump. Not wanting anyone else to touch my butt or any other part of me, I threw the back door open and practically rolled out. “I sure hope no one I know sees me like this.”
Trey plopped out next and wiped off his khaki pants. “Yeah, this probably isn’t doing much for our image. We would’ve looked better riding bikes.”
“Keep complaining and you’ll walk home.” C.C. crawled from the green beast, followed by Drake and Kevin.
Once we shut the door we headed into the mall. “Okay, first thing we’re gonna do is get you some new clothes.” My gaze swept over their outfits, which included khakis, dress shirts, loafers and C.C.’s horrendous brown turtleneck, which made him look like a head coming out of turd. I felt like I was in some sixties or seventies cartoon. Seriously, did his grandma dress him this morning?
