Zep only wanted to get rich, not become entangled in the lives of so many females, and he certainly never expected to fall in love. But that’s what can happen when you buy a tiny women’s college in 1929. Zep Decker is the humorous tale of a scheme that goes wonderfully wrong. Zep’s plan for the school is simple enough: just add some male students and a football team and th ...more

I won this book through the first-reads program.

A previous review touted this as a fantastic beach read, and I have to agree, this definitely would be. While beach reads tend to be light chick-lit fare Zep Decker is of a different sort. The book is irreverent, whimsical, and a bit muddled - as testament to the protagonists own personality.

Zep Decker is the story of a man with a dream. Well, a man who would have a dream if he wasn't so hungover. A get rich scheme turns into a realization that oth

I loved this book! Its a great story and the author tells it with great humor. I laughed out loud a lot. The characters are really well done and I was pulling for a certain romance to work out (I won't spoil it for you). Zep Decker is a fascinating guy and the people surrounding him made me so happy with all their quirky traits. There is just such a good balance between the characters and all the little story lines. Having it set in 1929 adds to the flavor and made me want to go live at the coll ...more

I was surprisingly happy to read Zep Decker! I found this book fun and lighthearted and a perfect beach read. The character development had me laughing and the subtextual stories were very unexpected. I think Brett Perkins is on to something here....a simpler time and perfect humor. I am giving this book a 5 star and passing it on to my friend who is a teacher at the local high school.

My rating system is as follows:

5 stars - Excellent, Worth Every Penny, Made It Into My Personal Library!

I'm the author of three books. I live with my wife and son in Bonita, California.

According to my mom, you will find my books impossible to dislike. And
