Loved Romeo and Rimmel so much. I read it in one sitting and have reread the entire series many times! You won't regret reading this.

Love Rimmel and her quirkiness! Romeo and Rimmel are thrown together and what starts out as a task they both don't want might actually be the start of something they never expected! Rimmel has been hurt before and is determined to keep Romeo at arms link but Romeo doesn't give up! Romeo and Rimmel were funny and had great chemistry. Its a story of opposites attract and I loved how Romeo was cocky but he was also sweet and protective! Great story..on to book #2!!

“It isn’t about what other people think,” she said. “It’s about the way you feel. Being put together on the outside makes you feel better on the inside.” I always love a nice chill romance book. There wasn't too much drama, but it also managed to pull all the emotions and feels out of me. There are the typical romance tropes in this book: popular bad boy player falls for the nerdy girl, and the whole 'guy makes a bet to get with the girl, and then girl finds out.' Like I said, they're overdone scenarios. Though that usually bothers me, I didn't mind it in this book. It felt different from the others. There were side characters involved as well. Told from a dual POV, Rimmel is the college nerd. Nobody knows her mostly because she keeps to herself. She doesn't have the best relationship with her father, her mother died when she was young, so she really doesn't have anyone but her grandparents. But college always keeps her away from home. But she doesn't mind because she feels like there isn't really anything there for her anyway. Even her roommate is someone she guards herself around. Roman, (aka Romeo), is the most popular man on the campus. That is mainly due to his skills on the football field. He is that good player that always takes his team to state. He is close to being drafted by the NFL, so when his grades start to drop, he has no choice but to get tutored so he can stay on the team. That is where Rimmel comes in. She doesn't want to tutor Romeo, but tutoring was a condition that came with her scholarship, so if she doesn't comply then she can kiss her scholarship goodbye. This book felt realistic to me. It's not the kind of book where the guy lays his eyes on the girl and has to get her immediately. No, Rimmel is not the typical hottie. She dresses comfortably, which in her terms are a sweater and baggy sweatpants. She has huge glasses that make her look like a fly. And her hair might as well be on par with Hermione Granger. So naturally for a guy like Romeo, who is used to getting Victoria Secret Angel like women, he doesn't really take a romantic interest in her. He finds her cute, and thinks she may need a little help, but other than that, it takes a while for the romance to start heating up. But the minute Romeo starts to have feelings for her, he doesn't try to deny it. And when Romeo falls, he falls hard. Same goes for Rimmel. She guards herself around everyone, so Romeo knows how honored he should be when she lets him little by little. Like I said, this book has the usual typical tropes. But I still found it fun and an easy read. It has everything, the sweet guy, the awesome dude best friend, and the creepy dude that tries to ruin everything. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.

#CanIHaveAMoment #ExperiencingGirlCrush #ThisBookWasFreakingFabulous This was great, unique spin on a contemporary sports romance. The use of hashtags and the BuzzFeed really added colorful flavor and set the stage for each chapter. I was laughing and crying and wanting to bash certain characters over the head. That's a great thing. You want that connection and pull. Hebert did a wonderful job getting into the minds of her characters. Another thing I really enjoyed was how she took a genre that is very saturated and carved a unique storyline that was compelling. I did notice a few football terminology errors (because I do like football and my husband is obsessed... I MEAN, OBSESSED with football) so I knew some terms were incorrect, and there were a couple grammatical errors I spotted. But those were minor and the flow and pitch were purring along as smooth as Romeo's Mustang. There was great emotion and character development. I really didn't like Romeo at first, but he changed and grew on me. Rimmel was fantastic. ***Having a girl crush at the moment.*** What a tough cookie. I enjoyed getting into her head, and Hebert did a fantastic job pacing that unveiling. She didn't lay the characters bare, but slowly showcased new aspects. Great job.

After reading #Junkie and #Rev I finally caved and started #Nerd!! I was planning on starting that series for a long time now (over a year according to Goodreads) but I just never had the time! After reading #Rev I knew enough was enough so I bought the book and then proceed to read it in one sitting. I looooved Rimmel and Romeo so much!!! The way Cambria writes Romeo at the beginning of their relationship is hilarious, like he likes her but he can't believe he likes her and all of the conflicting feelings and then all the swoony words! Aaah! So perfect! I fell in love with all the characters immediately and Trent was there! I was so happy every time I read about him, it always brought a smile to my face. The book is equally sexy, cute and dramatic. Rimmel hoes through a lot of horrific situations and all because she fell for Romeo, a guy who is being singled out by a creepy guy named Zachary who wants to bring him down, and from what I read this creep keeps popping out in the next books, I'm looking forward to read how they finally get rid of him. Excellent book, highly recommended!

#NERD is an awesome new adult romance that will have you swept away in the story from page one.  I love Rimmell, she's so real and likeable.  I think most readers can connect with her in some way.  Romeo, Romeo, you swept me off my feet.  I love how he grows emotionally through the story.  I can't wait to see where #HATER takes us. Braeden, Romeo's bff is a fun guy and hope to see more of him as  the series progresses.

I have to admit, I was really glad that this author started a new series. I was beginning to feel the old series being a little overdone and enjoying each installment less than the previous one for the most part. With this new book in the #hashtag series, consider my fangirldom renewed. Rimmel is a girl at college on a scholarship. She is not in the “in” crowd. She is tasked with tutoring Romeo, the school quarterback. She needs to tutor him in order to keep her scholarship; he needs to be tutored in order to keep playing. They don’t want each other, but they need each other. When they develop a friendship, the story really takes off. But when Romeo is tasked in secret by his fraternity to use Rimmel in some way, it gets complicated. At its core, it’s a story about social norms. Can you cross the boundaries of your social group to find love? Should you? This book had the potential to be like a lot of books already out there. I mean, we’ve heard this story before…nerd meets jock and falls in love. But the author did a great job of updating this story with the idea of the hashtags in this book and the #buzzfeed (campus gossip) at the beginning of every chapter. It can be a bit juvenile, but we are talking about college age people here, so I guess that is acceptable. I thought the characters were really great in this story too. What I really, really liked was that the characters, especially Rimmel, didn’t have to go through some dramatic change in order to get the guy. She was just who she was and that was good enough. I think that’s a great message for girls/women that is missing from a lot of books in this genre. Granted, Rimmel and Romeo have their ups and downs, and there are duplicitous activities because there has to be some kind of drama, but the story flowed well and I thought that seeing both of their perspectives really added to the story. Overall, I’m excited about this series and enjoyed this book very much. I can’t wait to read the next book! 4 stars. Reviewed by Sara Squared for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy Provided for review*

I've been jonesing to read this book since it was first released.  For those of you who don't know what jonesing means, it's a synonym for craving, albeit slang.  I finally bit the bullet and bought the book. It was 2 am and I thought to myself, "Read a chapter before you go to sleep, get a taste of the book." The next thing I know, it's 3:47 in the morning, the book is finished and my alarm is set to go off at 8:30 in the morning.  And yes, I read every single word. This book lived up to all of my expectations.  I was expecting the book to be really good, hot, funny, and interesting. I got all of that.  Roman "Romeo" is as hot as I'd heard he was.  He was totally "the man" and he really wasn't looking for anything remotely serious, especially not with the one person who gave him lip and didn't fit his "type."  I loved Rimmel.  She was shy and scared.  I wasn't sure what had happened to her in the past to traumatize her so much, but once it became clear, I understood her reasons.  I liked seeing Rimmel come out of her shell.  She didn't turn into an uber babe and the hottest girl on campus, but she was just a different version of herself. I was worried the bet premise might be a little cliched, but Cambria Hebert did a fantastic job at keeping that from happening.  I really didn't like Zack.  I had and still have no idea why he hates Romeo so much.  I do know he's not done creating trouble for Romeo and Rimmel.  I like how this first part ended.  I'm hoping to see more of Romeo's parents and their interactions with Rimmel.  I especially want to see how his mother gets along with her.  Their initial interaction made me cry.  I was a little turned off with the sort of insta-attraction Rimmel felt for Romeo.  I liked how it wasn't the same for him.  He had to see her to understand what she was hiding and take a second look.  I also didn't really like how quickly she gave in to how she felt about him, especially since she saw him working his magic first hand.  However, I don't doubt the sincerity of Romeo's feelings for Rimmel.  I have a feeling I'm going to be gobbling the books in this series as soon as they're published.  I'm off to read #Hater next!

Very cute and fun read! Rimmel is the resident nerd. She does't care about her appearance and is always studying. Roman, aka Romeo, is your typical jock. He's hot, plays football, and all the girls want him. Both of their worlds collide when Rimmel is told she has to tutor Romeo and Romeo is told Rimmel has to tutor him. They both are doing this against their will. In the middle of this Romeo is rushing a frat and as part of initiation he is supposed to sleep with a girl of the frat's choosing. Who do imagine this is? They both get to know each other and develop feelings for one another. They are both met with resistance as they don't belong to the same circles.  "Romeo didn't seem to care or even notice we were getting more stares than a man dressed in drag." "The second my lips touched hers, everything else melted away. The street, my car, the initiation. Everything" "When did everything get so damn complicated?" "When your life became about more than just football." "You sound like Yoda." I joked and was laughing, but really, he was right. For so long, my life had been nothing but football.... But now there was something more.  Very cute story where boy meets girl but they work together against all the jealousy and what people think. Plenty of snarky comments from the characters that will keep you smiling. Very well written but is very predictable (this is why I gave it 4 stars). Definitely worth the read and can't wait for the sequel!

Wasn't sure about this at first.  I've really gotten into the take-it-off series, and was worried this wouldn't be as good, sooo glad I read it anyway!  Different yes,but definitely just as good.  Loved what felt like a HEA,  so I am surprised but very happy there will be more coming for this couple.   Also, hope she does do a book for Braeden too!

Don't feel like writing a review, but wanted to give #Nerd 5 (well deserved) stars. Adorable, fun, and swoonworthy. If you're thinking about getting it, quit stalling. Get it.
