Queens of Geek - Jen Marie Wilde

So I can’t decide whether to give this 3.5 or 4 stars, so I’ll just stick with 4 because overall I did like it.

 

The best way to describe how i felt about this book is with a list.

 

What I liked:
-The diversity! I loved seeing a bisexual character done correctly. I also loved that Charlie was Asian. Taylor being autistic was also a nice addition and something you hardly ever see.
-Charlie’s love story. It was super cute <3 Alyssa knows how to take a girl out on a date.
-The fandom references, especially The Craft one (I love that movie).

 

What I didn’t like
-Lack of chemistry between Jamie and Taylor in the beginning and how it was a bit cliche. I found myself shipping Taylor with the other people she meet early on in the book. I also felt like Taylor didn’t even need a romance storyline. Her story was perfectly fine without it.
-The writing style. It was very average and at times reminded me of fan fiction. I wished there was more description on the characters’ appearances because I had a hard time picturing them for some reason.
-How predictable it was. I could see some plot points coming from a mile away.

 

All in all, this didn’t quite meet my expectations, but it was still a worthy read.

It's All Fun and Games Till The Cat Says Differently
Geek with the Cat Tattoo - Theresa Weir
3.5
Cute romance with a meddling cat who has some mystical powers. I knew there was something up with those furry beasties ! Anyway this kitty is messing with owners minds, moving through them looking for that one who will be his. After being thrown out by super duper jerk he wanders down busy streets until he meets a introverted nerd desperately in need of a cat intervention. He likes girl but is too shy to act on it. There is a lot more happening you'll have to read about it. I enjoyed it, the characters were well formed. I'll read more from this author

Medium, Sweet, Extra Shot of Geek by R. Cooper
Medium, Sweet, Extra Shot of Geek - R. Cooper

Former soldier Octavio “Tavio” Reyes works as a barista, a favorite with the customers—especially Tommy O’Shaughnessy. An avowed geek, Tommy comes in daily to flirt, usually under the guise of Trekkie talk. Tavio hesitates; now that he's out of the army, he’s not sure how out he should be, or whether to take his chances on a geek devoted to sci-fi and comic books. But when Tommy compares him to an unemotional Vulcan, Tavio finally considers dating an out-and-proud nerd. Then Tommy surprises him again and introduces him to his daughter, whom Tommy loves even more than Star Trek or Tavio. Now Tavio has a whole new decision to make: Is he ready to romance a family man?

 

Review

 

Oh, R. Copper, you frustrate me. As always the writing, situation and characters are gorgeous. This romance is hot and sweet and everything good and compelling. 

It is a slow burn. I don't mind that we get a fade to black sex scene (though okay I prefer not) but I needed more scenes after they started dating. More! lol
