Book Review: Romancing the Nerd [Nerd #2] by Leah Rae Miller
Romancing the Nerd is the second book in the Nerd series. After reading the first one a few years ago, I knew I had to read this one when I saw it on NetGalley. Dan and Zelda used to be best friends, until Dan became part of the popular crowd and cancelled plans with Zelda to participate in team activities. Since that moment this duo have barely spoken, and when they do it's been tense and strained. An accidental throw sends a ball right into Zeldas face, and a throwaway comment means she takes it as an intentional throw, and begins to plot revenge.
Romancing the Nerd was a sweet, quick read. From the moment I began reading I was hooked. I had to know what happened between Dan and Zelda, and also if they would ever become friends again. I love that we get to catch up with Madelyne and Logan, and seeing what they are up to.
Romancing the Nerd is a book that has more going on inside than a beautiful cover. We see romance, friendships, and bullys who get what they deserve. I love the friendship Zelda has with her best friend Beth, and how she supports her through the events in the book. I love how things aren't what they seem, the misunderstandings, the inner geek, and the slow realisation that Dan and Zelda had things wrong and were learning of thier own mistakes. The grand gesture near the end had me smiling a stupidly goofy smile, this is such a romantic things to do.
Romancing the Nerd was a book I thoroughly enjoyed. I could not read it fast enough. I enjoyed getting to see the old and the new, and part of me is hoping we get to see Beth with her own book at some point.
