Two people from completely different worlds are about to be thrown together...in more ways than one.
She wants to keep her scholarship. He wants to stay on the team. An awkward alliance doesn't even begin to cover Rimmel and Romeo's relationship. But that's about to change.
It starts with a dare. An initiation. A challenge. Quickly it turns into more. But when you're a victim of your status, there is no room for anything real. The rules are clear and simple: Stick to your circle. And never fall in love with anyone on the outside.

"Fresh Story - Interesting Format"
This is the first in a series. The plot has been done but not overdone. Hebert does a great job of main character development although I think she could have amped up the supporting characters. She also left some loose ends that I would have thought she would have tied up in book one. We will have to wait and see for book two and book three.
The narration is female, male ping pong which is becoming popular. The preponderance of POV comes from Rimel. The narrators do a solid job. This book will appeal to light romance readers and is R rated but just barely. If you are looking for "steam" pass, this book is on the sweater side.
I do recommend going forward with the series. Although, I do recommend taking a book or two off and then coming back for book two. It is not a series that you have to go right on to book two to see what happens.
"#GreatBeginning to a New Adult Series"
Read this and you won't regret it, if you like New Adult romance... though their lives are far from the normal college student which makes the entire series far from the normal new adult romance that sometimes is starting to feel a bit overdone. If this is only the beginning, I can't imagine where it goes from here.
"Great audio book!"
Loved the books and the narration of it just brings it more to life. The narrator's did a great job. I highly recommend it!
"Love Romeo and Rimmel"
I loved the whole story!
That the nerd gets the jock.
Chandra sounds like a robot. Her voice made it hard to listen to. Eric was good tho.
"I enjoyed it."
4.5 Crazy Ass Stars!!!
I enjoyed listening to this book. The narrators did a great job giving the characters voices and drawing me into the story more.
I wasn't too sure about Romeo in the beginning. He was obnoxious with his piggish, totally stereo-typical star quarterback personality.
Rimmel, I found very intriguing right from the start. I just needed to know what her story was with all the hiding behind big clothes and her hair.
I did find it a tad too predictable with the whole playboy star quarterback and the invisible "nerd" thrown in with the villain (Zach) that tries to sabotage everything. That storyline is a bit overdone in my opinion. It was very reminiscent of Tillie Cole's Sweet Home series, LA Cotton's Chastity Falls series and Tijan's Fallen Crest series. However, Cambria Hebert found a way to make it unique and had wanting to find out how Rimmel and Romeo's story played out.
"FEMALE NARRATOR IS A ROBOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Ok, so she may not be a robot, but she was monotone and boring and she was talking like Ben Stein from Ferris Bueller for christ sakes!!!!!!!!!!! OK she wasn't all that bad, but she didn't sound like she was into it either. The story is awesome! I love how the hot guy always falls for the nerd or dorky or even fat chick. Gives us fat dorky nerds hope! Well, not me cuz I married my hot guy. But, even so, I gave 5 stars because I think the story line is awesome. She's a nerd, he's a jock, he needs help with school work, she is forced to give it. They are in college and he wants to be in this frat and to get in he has to sleep with a girl of their choosing and photo it. IT"S HER!!!!!!! Big shock there. Does he do it? I won't spill the beans. I kind of love the alpha buzz dude (whoever it is). I'm very curious. Who is it? Oh well, you gotta read to find out! Looking forward to the next book!
i enjoyed the story and the performance was good. i liked all the characters and thought the story flowed well. it left me entertained and wanting to read on.
"Rimmel and Romeo are #awesome"
When Romeo finds her walking on the street and they have their first kiss.
Their voices embody what I imagined Rimmel and Romeo would sounds like. I felt like they were telling a story as opposed to just reading a book.
this is one of my favorite books of all time. Romeo and Rimmel are how life should be.
"First ever audiobook! Love!"
#Nerd has been my first experience of listening to an audiobook. It won't be my last. I already have my next lined up. I listened to this at night with my eyes shut and I could visualise this story more than any when I've read the words. I also own the ebook so I could highlight my favourite parts. The narrators were fantastic and brought this story to life. I loved this book.
