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

A Suite Geek (Suite Love Series, Book Three) - Sue Gibson

A Suite Geek by Sue Gibson is an entertaining read.  Ms Gibson has provided us with a fun story.  Christy is the Recreational Director at Nirvana and is determined to help geeky Edward become less socially challenged.  The characters in this book are fun and lovable.  There’s plenty of drama, humor and spice to keep the pages turning.  A Suite Geek is book 3 in the Suite Love Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Geek Actually: WTF (Season 1 Episode 1) - Rachel Stuhler,Melissa Blue,Cecilia Tan,Cathy Yardley

*Disclaimer: I received an e-copy from Netgalley and Serial Box in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my rating or the content of my review in any way

 

This is the first installment in the Geek Actually serial, the pilot if you may, and we get to meet five women: Michelle, Aditi, Taneesha, Elli and Christina. They're friends (Michelle and Christina are actually half-sisters) and we get to observe them navigating their lives. It kind of reminded me of Sex And The City, which intrigued me.

 

This book was told from multiple POVs, with an accent on Michelle and Aditi. I'm thinking that each episode focuses more on one of the women than the other, which is interesting. I connected a lot more with Taneesha, to be honest. She's a woman, she's a black woman, and she's a video game programmer, so she basically holds the job that once upon a time I wanted, and there's a scene with her and her bosses that is so painful and infuriating that I wanted to jump into the book and slap both of those idiots. I was also insanely curious about Aditi and her relationship with someone important in her life.

 

I felt like this was a bit too short for my taste, but I could see myself reading the rest of the installments. Since it was a pilot installment, I can't exactly say I was in love with the story, but it's good enough to make me curious about the rest of it.

Boss Battles (Geek Actually #1.3) by Melissa Blue Review
Geek Actually: Boss Battles (Season 1 Episode 3) - Rachel Stuhler,Melissa Blue,Cecilia Tan,Cathy Yardley

Meet your new best girlfriends in this sexy, genre-busting serial that's all about feminism, friendship, and fandom.

Taneesha's brother can always cheer her up, but this is going a little too far: trying to engineer her love life? On the other hand . . . his friend Diego is definitely sexy, and owns a game store, to boot. Elli thinks of her new job like a video game (complete with an evil wizard), in an attempt to make this one last, while Aditi tiptoes through a visit from her in-laws.

Join this tight-knit group of lady geeks as they navigate the ups and downs of their personal and professional lives. Michelle is a hard-nosed fantasy and sci-fi editor used to things going her way. Taneesha is a talented video game programmer used to being the odd (wo)man out. Aditi is a fantasy writer on the verge of her big break. Christina is a rebel on the sidelines of Hollywood. And Elli is a fan-of anything and everything that keeps her from "proper adulting." They might live far apart, but through the power of the internet and a shared love of all things geek, they are ready to face the world together.

 

Review

Oh how I want to like this...but I don't....

I love circle of friends and geek girls. I struggle with the serial format and this jump for me is made even more difficult as this series is written by different writers so there is a mesh issue. Especially in this one. 

This one is too short and nothing really happens here. 

I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.
