Goodreads Summary:

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.

What Made Me Swoon:

"We held each other for a moment, then Sebastian pulled away slowly.  His face was so close to mine. , our noses almost touched.  Slowly, he tilted his head and brought his lips to mine.  His kiss was shy, tentative, and very short.  My lips protested when he pulled away.  A slow, anxious exhale left me, betraying my disappointment, which was not lost on Sebastian.  He kissed me again, but this time there was something different in the way his lips moved over mine.  The shyness was gone, replaced by the same voracity he's always shown in the past. His renewed intensity awakened mine.  My body yielded to Sebastian's, unable to resist its call, a call that felt like something predestined, the inevitable beckoning of two bodies made for each other. "  (eARC, Loc. 2089)
