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.***
Sebastian turned to look back at me. We stared into each other’s eyes until he asked, “Why are you afraid of letting me in? Did someone hurt you before?”
Breaking eye contact, I sat up and hugged my legs to my chest.
Rule No.8: Never share your secrets with a player. He will only use them to his advantage.

" Even when I found the most amazing man, a man who seemed to care about me, something about me wasn't good enough to keep him from leaving." - Ingrid Seymour, The Guys Are Props Club.College is such a busy and serious thing to care about. Especially when you're after the scholarship. Maddie tried and did her best to concentrate with her studies, forget the guy who betrayed her, and not to fall in love again. Not until she met Sebastian Capello. When he came barging in the hall while The GAP Club was holding the meeting, she thought that he was just some random, flirty guy who gets to play with girls.
"No matter how hard I've tried or how badly I want to," he said, "I haven't been able to stop thinking about you." - Ingrid Seymour, The Guys Are Props Club
