On her senior year in high school, Maddie Burch promised herself not to ever fall for a cute guy – or any guy – again. Cute guys are players and not to be trusted, a fact she learned the hard way when her first boyfriend ran her heart through a paper shredder. Two years later, her promise is still intact, and she’s determined to make it through college without falling victim to another creep. She has her job, school and The Guys Are Props Club to keep her mind and hormones in check.
The club was founded by Jessica, Maddie’s best friend. It is a sisterhood of girls who have fallen prey to heartless jerks and who have vowed to turn the tables. Once a semester, Jessica requires members to “do onto others as they’ve done unto you.” Setting the example, Jessica’s next play is Sebastian Capello, a theater major with heartthrob looks and a flair for Latin dance, whose heart she plans to break the way hers was once broken.
What the friends don’t know is that Sebastian is different. Despite his perfect looks and popularity, he’s not a jerk. He doesn’t play games to get his way. Instead, he keeps it real and goes after what he wants with honest intentions. And what he wants is not a bombshell like Jessica, but a down-to-earth girl like Maddie – even if it causes a riff in the girl’s friendship. Even if it means getting Maddie to break her personal vow.
*** Due to language and sexual situations this book is recommended for ages 17 and older.
What I Thought
Maddie is a great character. She came to college after getting her heart completely broken. Along with her roomie Jessica, they formed the GAP club, Guys are Props. The whole point of the club is to pull, stunts with guys where they go out with them and then dump them. Maddie did it once then felt guilty and swore she wasn’t going to do it again. By the time we meet her she is pretty much over the whole GAP thing, but is still roommates with Jessica, so really can’t get over it. However, Maddie is still sticking with her no boys rule.
Then she meets Sebastian. Sebastian is into Maddie from the get go. He is the perfect guy, but Jessica is determined not to get involved. Sebastian is just the kind of guy that makes you swoon and think, girl give him a try.
This book was great and such a fun read. I really enjoyed the story and couldn’t put it down!
