Overview

Welcome to the big leagues. To secrets and scandals. It's all about the game. Who's playing. Who's not. Who has no idea about the game. And...wait, what game are we playing?

I'll leave that for you to decide.

Where to start is the big question for Chloe Baker. How was she supposed to explain to Zack Warren that she started a fan club for him when she was a kid? It was just a game. A way to make friends and have fun. She never thought it would spiral out of control. And never. In a million, gazillion years, did she think it would follow her to college. How could she tell him her best friend Lana kept the club alive? That she had nothing to do with the craziness?

Chloe didn’t understand why she cared so much about Zack's opinion of her. She hated him. He hated her. They had very mutual feelings of dislike for each other. So he'd just hate her even more when or if he found out.

And that's totally fine...she thinks.

Zack Warren had a soft spot for Chloe Baker. He likes the way she walks. He likes the way she talks. If he was poetically inclined, he’d write a sonnet about her ass.

It's Zack’s junior year of college. He’s got things to worry about. Scouts from the major leagues. Baseball games. Contracts. Grades.... His father ran away to Vegas with Chloe's mother. He didn’t have time to worry about a girl. But he did. He worried about Chloe a lot, especially with that jerk Max sniffing around her.

It's weird though, to like your stepsister, right?
But Zack could argue that he saw Chloe first. Way before his dad met her mom. He was too young to stake a claim. But he doesn't care anymore.

He’s done playing games.

    Highly Recommend!

    This book was so cute! This was the first book I've read by J.C.Isabella and I was pleasantly surprised how amazing her writing style is. I loved the characters and it was a major bonus that we were able to see the point of view from both main characters. Although the book was short and a quick read it was definitely worth the money. The story is cute and the characters are relatable; I can relate especially to Chloe since she is just a regular, college-age girl. The plot is original and I loved that the author kept it clean (no sex). I definitely recommend!

    The Unofficial Zack Warren Fan Club was a quick, fun read!

    I adored Chloe and Zack! Chloe was so funny, that girl had me laughing my butt off! And Zack... I want to be in his fan club, lol. Just kidding, but I could totally see why so many girls were in love with him. He was athletic, good looking, and actually had some morals!

    I thought Chloe and Zack made a cute couple, but I will admit that the whole step sibling thing was a little weird. I know they were not actually related, but it was still kind of awkward.

    Overall though, I thought this was a really cute story and I look forward to reading the next book in this series!

    Oh man. I¿ll start with the good: The idea was cute. It had rea

    Oh man.

    I’ll start with the good: The idea was cute. It had real potential: Enemies become step-siblings and fall in love. Oh, and one character may have created an unofficial fan club for the other in fifth grade. This promised conflict, tension, and some really funny moments.

    Promised, but didn’t deliver. There were countless reasons I was disappointed with this book. Here are my top issues:

    1. The writing. This needed a serious edit. There were countless grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. And the author doesn’t seem to understand how quotations work. The way she’d end dialog drove me crazy. When she should have used a comma, she’d start a new sentence:

    “We have a problem.” I said, taking a deep breath to memorize the cool, clean scent clinging to Zack’s shirt.

    When a new sentence was required, she’d use a comma:

    “You implied it,” how could we fake a relationship?

    This wasn’t a one-time thing, either. Consistently throughout the book, she managed to repeat the grammatical error.

    But it wasn’t just the grammatical or spelling errors that left the writing wanting. There were countless inconsistencies in the plot. For instance, Zack’s mean to Chloe because after his mom died he feared that by opening himself up to love he’d lose someone again. Lame excuse, but I would have given it an eye-roll pass if it weren’t for two things: First, he was mean to Chloe before his mom died. And second, he loves his dad but isn’t worried he’ll lose him. Other inconsistencies throughout made it harder to enjoy the story without constantly questioning the characters’ actions.

    Or how about Zack’s fighting as a kid? Supposedly he got in a ton of fights in middle school, but at the book’s climax, when he needs to fight the antagonist to save Choe, he says it’s only the second time he’s fought to solve a problem. 

    2. The characters. I really wanted to like Chloe and Zack, but their personalities made it hard. From each others’ point of view, the other is flawless. But I’m not sure what they saw in one another. Zack is hot and cold with Chloe for most of the book. He’s acting like a friend then ignoring her then back to being friendly then angry… What does she see in him beyond his good looks?

    And let’s not forget Zack’s bad boy past. Did you know that when he was in eighth grade he pulled the fire alarm? Seriously—that is the height of his bad boyness. Something he regrets and Chloe still remembers as a low point for him. Now, I’m not saying it’s cool to go pulling fire alarms, but really? This is the huge rebellion? It’s blown way out of proportion, both characters treating it as if he’d been arrested for drugs or theft or something. 

    And though Zack says (repeatedly) that Chloe isn’t like the other girls, I don’t see it. She’s still catty, calling pretty much all but two of the girls her age sluts or airheads. At one point, a girl who had previously been interested in Zack shows up to a group get-together with a  date and Chloe remarks that the girl is being a sore loser and that her date is bland. So because she moved on from Zack and because she brought a date she’s lame and he’s a loser? How exactly is Chloe different from the other girls she and Zack hate so much?

    3. Age range. I couldn’t picture these two as college students at all. I’m actually curious why the author didn’t make them high school students. Pretty much every situation but Zack’s career could have been changed to high school and the story would still be intact. In fact, they even partied at their parents’ houses. It’s like all the characters go to college in this small town that’s close to where they all grew up. There was no college life whatsoever and what there was seemed very high schoolish. Aside from the dorm rooms, I didn’t get the point.

    I would just like to mention that the characters seeming young had nothing to do with the fact that they’re both virgins. I actually very much liked that aspect of the characters, especially about supposed player Zack. And I do think it’s believable that they’re college-age virgins. But the way Chloe talks about sex sounds more like a 15-year-old than a 19-year-old college girl. 

    4. The conflict. Or, really, what conflict? I think Chloe and Zack hate each other for about one chapter. Maybe less. I went into this hoping for real enemies who learned to love one another. But neither really hates or even dislikes one another. They’re in love from the start. And that would have been fine, really, this secret love. But the problem was they kept saying they hated each other, and I wasn’t buying it. So the conflict there—shacking up with your enemy-turned-step-sibling seemed very forced. 

    As for the antagonist, Zack’s teammate Max, he was a boring, one-dimensional villain. Though one dimensional is pretty much how I’d describe all of the characters—even Zack and Chloe. I mean, we learned things about them (they both like Twizzlers!) but I never really felt like I knew them. How does Zack feel about his baseball career and going pro? What’s Chloe feeling during her fight with best friend Lana? You really get no insight into their minds or emotions, which makes caring what happened to them very, very difficult.

    5. The relationship. I’ll admit, I liked the idea of these two getting together. It’s why I picked up the book in the first place. But there was so much more that could have been done with them. I mean, they’re new step-siblings, yet that relationship is mostly a nonissue for them. I expected conflict over that—should they get together now that their parents are married? What happens if they break up considering they have to keep seeing each other as family? And so on… Yet none of these issues were brought up. Mostly they admitted their love for one another, then kept the relationship a secret from their parents even though Chloe’s mom said she knew they liked one another. 

    In short, cute idea, but the execution isn’t great. It needs a few more rounds of revisions and a great editor to make this a good read. And I really wish the author had done so, because despite the book’s many flaws, she’s a good storyteller. I only hope that with her next book she invests in a copy editor and takes more time polishing the story.

    This was a nicely done, written story! This story had a great concept. Who has not had a childhood crush, even a small one? This story might get you to remember that type of memory. Chloe and Zack are both likable characters, believe me, you will be rooting for these two. At first, they really do not like each other, knowing each other since they were young kids, but now, they have to even force each other to make some sort of conversation, because well...their parents just got hitched! Yup! Zack's Father and Chloe's Mom eloped, so now they are step-siblings. But, hey, they actually become good friends and want to spend more time together, more than they both want to admit, but is that so wise? Since they are sorta related, not by blood, but are a part of the same family. Also, you're probably wondering about this Fan Club? Well let's just say that Chloe once upon a time had a massive crush on Zack in Elementary School and with a friend, created a fan club, all about him. Hmm well there is an event that makes Chloe not want to be a part of the club any longer, and that is way before their parents got married, so all of this, you are going to have to find out yourself, and I think you will absolutely love this story, from beginning to end!

    The characters were nicely developed including Kyle, Zack's best friend, who happens to be dating Chloe's best friend, Lana, whose is an interesting character herself... There was good writing here, a really great flow. I've heard there will be a second book in this series, but a different story, with new characters to concentrate on, so I definitely look forward to that! All in all, this is an excellent romantic and humorous read, and I hope you read it!

    This has got to be one of the cutest, romantic YA books I have read in a long time! A fun and enjoyable book that I finished in no time flat it was that good!

    The Unofficial Zack Warren Fan Club was started by Chloe when she was in elementary school. Now with the help of her best friend the club has gotten out of control and Chloe wants it to end. You see now Zack Warren is not only the boy she has a crush on, he is also her stepbrother.

    Zack has always liked Chloe. Even before his dad met her mom, he liked her. Now a junior in college and doing really well in baseball he discovers that his feeling for Chloe are even stronger than ever.

    Unfortunately he finds outs about the fan club…

    I recommend The Unofficial Zack Warren Fan Club to anyone who is looking for a fun YA book to read.

    more from this reviewer

    I loved this book! It was just right light-hearted romance I ne

    I loved this book! It was just right light-hearted romance I needed after several paranormal books I have been bingeing on. While Zack Warren isn't a fairy tale prince, he IS every girl's dream come true. This book reminded me of so many grade school crushes I had, not that long ago. I was never as ambitious enough to create a fan club for any of them.
    Chloe, however, was. She went from crushing on Zack Warren to hating him; not understanding that when a boy torments you in the 5th grade they probably like you. Chloe is the kind of girl I would have hung with in college. She's fun but not a big party girl. I like that she stood up for herself and didn't take crap from any guy. It was pretty funny as Zack tried to make sense of her.
    Oh, my Zack... he sounds DELICIOUS! I love baseball players so you can imagine how I drooled over him. Despite the chances he had to become a Class A jerk he was far from it. Like so many girls, here was a GUY who had gotten a reputation simply because he was attractive and good at sports.
    The whole evolution of their relationship was fantastically frustrating! Take all the weirdness that goes with blending two families then add having a huge &quot;thing&quot; for you step-sibling and you have the definition of awkward.
    This was a pretty quick read. It does have mild to medium language and sexual content. I'd recommend it for ages 16 and up.
