#TheGuysArePropsClubBlogTour @ingrid_seymour @oopsireadagain {review, excerpt, & giveaways}





{about the book}
During 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.

{excerpt}
She always got guys to ask her out pretty quickly, but this had to be some kind of record. Still, I shouldn’t have been surprised. It was a known fact to all G.A.P. members and also stated in Rule No.14 of the G.A.P. Playbook that a guy’s sluttiness is directly proportional to the level of his egotistical good looks. And in most cases, inversely proportional to the size of his . . .

{my thoughts}
I started reading this book and did not put it down once. Ok, maybe once to get a drink. But that's it. It was sooo good. I loved it. It was full of love and drama. And it was so easy to fall into the world that Ingrid Seymour had created. This story shows both the good and the ugly side of love. It was emotional (lots of tears & laughter!!) and overall wonderful!
