The Guys Are Props Club
by Ingrid Seymour

Thank you to Dianne of Oops! I Read A Book Again for the copy of this from a giveaway! :)


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.


Okay, so this is the first time I read a new adult book, and frankly, I was kind of surprised with the topics it dealt with… But either way, the story was really interesting. I’d actually read something like that before in Wattpad; it was titled The Heart Breaker Association. The two plots were a bit similar in that they both involved this organization of girls, but it was actually more than that. I learned to admire Maddie because she was able to gradually break away from her past and realize the things she did wrong. Sebastian was amazing, too, what with his accepting Maddie for who she is. He was thoughtful enough to know when to push her and when to back off. It was great how, through their relationship, they were able to teach each other some valuable and irreplaceable things, helping them grow into better individuals. The character I didn’t like so much was Jessica, because she was just so nasty throughout the story, but even I have to admit that I look up to her for being able to gain the courage to say something that is undoubtedly really difficult to share. It was an easy read that had me falling in love with the plot over and over again as it progressed, and it is surely a book that is worth your time!
