Dan Garrett has become exactly what he hates—popular. Until recently, he was just another live-action role-playing nerd on the lowest rung of the social ladder. Cue a massive growth spurt and an uncanny skill at taking three-point shots in basketball and voilà…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 band geek 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. Never mind that she used to have a crush on him. Never mind 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.

**I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.**
Romancing the Nerd is a quick, fun read. Dan is a nerdy guy who had a growth spurt that put him hanging out with the popular crowd. He’s on the basketball team and no longer talks to his former best friend, Zelda. Zelda is a geeky girl who is fed up with Dan and his popularity. She wants to get revenge on him.
I loved Zelda’s antics to try to get revenge on Dan. I really enjoyed the LARPing scenes as well. I’m a total nerd at heart and always enjoy stories where the main characters are nerds too! This was a great afternoon read.
