Nerds Are Freaks Too

For the most part this was an entertaining and quick read. This contemporary erotic romance is filled with humorous moments interlaced with hot sex scenes. The main characters are engaging; Roxanne is gregarious, bright, and clear on what she wants in her life-for the most part. Leo is a dream in Clark Kent glasses. He is self-possessed, caring, intelligent, and is absolutely in love with the heroine. The dialogue was fresh and witty and made me wish that there was more to the story than what was provided. Trust me this is a good thing!

The one thing that kept me from rating this book higher is that the story started to fall apart half way through the story. Roxanne suddenly became nebbish after beginning the story with such a strong presence. The story was also felt uneven. What made the story uneven is that the story was only told from her point of view. If the author had balanced some of the story with moments where we get to read why and how Leo was able to fall in love with Roxanne it would have made the story much more appealing.

Overall this was an excellent read and I look forward to reading more from Ms. Brown.

Book Blurb for Nerds Are Freaks Too

Roxanne is stunned when her best friend, Leo, admits his feelings for her—she’s so not going there. Lovers may come and go, but true friends are hard to find. Instead, she enlists his help to sign her up for an online fetish dating site. She immediately meets a man who can help her explore her kinky side, starting with a chat session that leads to the best orgasm of her life. While her body’s satisfied, her mind can’t forget Leo’s confession…

Leo, meanwhile, isn’t giving up so easily. He knows Roxanne like the back of his hand, knows what she needs, and he’s more than equipped to give it to her. Subtle touches, a sexy spanking, the most erotic dessert-eating session ever… Leo is successfully proving that computer nerds can be sexual freaks too—until Roxanne discovers his secret. One that could kill not only a potential relationship, but their longtime friendship as well.
