Review: Romancing The Nerd by Leah Rae Miller

Title: Romancing The Nerd
Series: Stand-Alone
Author: Leah Rae Miller
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Published Date: April 5th 2016 by Entangled: Teen
Format: e-arc
Source: I received this arc by the publisher  Entangled Teen  in exchanged for an honest review.
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.

Romancing The Nerd was a really cute, fluffy and lovely book that I really loved and enjoyed so much! Now I didn't now this was a companion book for  The Summer I Became a Nerd book, but that's totally ok you can read this awesome book as a stand-alone as well. Even though I really want to read the first book The Summer I Became a Nerd  because I absolutely loved and adore Logan & Maddie. That I really want to read there book but don't worry I am going to so remedy that little issue of mine. But Romancing The Nerd is Dan & Zelda book (Which Zelda is totally an awesome name mind you!). I absolutely love everything in this amazing book I loved the plot, writing styles and the characters I especially loved and adore Dan and Zelda. Yes Zelda despise Dan at first because he totally changed to Mr. Popular all of a sudden when he was a totally geek like her once upon a time. But that's not why she despise him so much, Dan did something too her that she thinks is utter betrayal on his part and she will never forgive him for what he has done so she thinks.  Dan in the other hand he really likes Zelda and he had a crush on her when they were friends and LARPing together. But when he started to changed to Mr. Popular and playing basketball he totally stop doing everything he loved. Because Dan father wanted him to concentrate more in his basketball skills and heath so he can get into a great collage. But Dan was getting really frustrated with the tight leash his father had on him he couldn't even eat no junk food at all especially pizza that he loves. Dan still hangs out with some of his geeky friends especially his best friends Logan and Maddie he really does wish that Zelda would be his friend again, but he thinks he ruined everything with her after he ditch her for a basketball fun raiser that they were doing in his high school. Dan was suppose to help Zelda character in LARP but he couldn't bail out of the fun raiser because his father would be really upset with him. He try too explain it to Zelda that he couldn't bail out from the fun raiser but stubborn hot headed Zelda would have none of it and decided to end her friendship right than and there with Dan. Now it's Dan and Zelda senior year in high school and they still haven't talk to each other until a humiliating incident happen between Dan and Zelda in front of everybody that was in the gym that day. And Dan just felt god awful for what he did which by they why was a total accident. But of course stubborn Zelda didn't think it was an accident at all and she decides that she will get back at Dan for totally humiliating her in front of everybody in the gym. So Zelda hatch a plan to totally embarrass Dan and too finally analyze and prove that Dan Mr. Popular and Jock has no nice or kind bone in his body that he is a total jerk, douchebag and bully that will never changed for the better. But when Zelda starts talking to Dan and getting too learn and know more about him better. And than Dan starts to get back into LARP she realize that her plan might back fire on her butt and she probably will lose her heart along the way as well. Here is where I am going to stop at because I don't want to spoil it for anybody else. I do recommend reading Romancing The Nerd too all my lovely friends. The pure nerd and fangirl in me was jumping in joy with all the fandom aspects that were in the book. I especially loved reading and learning a little bit more about LARPing that was my favorite part of the book! I will most definitely continue on reading more books by Leah Rae Miller because I totally and absolutely love her writing style and plots in books. I hope there will be another companion book with Zelda best friend Beth or even the douchebag Donovan. I would most definitely check out there book if it was ever written! Hint Hint Pretty Please Leah Rae Miller make another companion novel of  The Summer I Became a Nerd series so my inner fangirl can squeal with joy reading your amazing books you write!
