Hot & Nerdy # 2
By: Shannyn Schroeder
Releasing October 26th, 2014
Spring break is supposed to be a week of fun in the sun for three childhood friends about to graduate from college. But one of them is ready to get her game on somewhere else…
Charlie Castle is an expert archer and a fierce warrior—in her favorite video game, anyway. But college life was a program she couldn’t quite master. To land a cybertech job without a degree, she’s entering a “hackfest” over spring break—where she also hopes to meet the sweet gamer who’s been flirting with her online. Instead, she runs into the hot guy who walked away years ago, and can’t fight the desire that comes rushing back.
Jonah Best has never gotten over Charlie, whose kisses were always as deliciously creative as her coding. But now that they’re face to face again, he doesn’t know how to admit that her online admirer is really him—or how to convince her that he’s offering her a job for her incredible skills, not her sex appeal. Can Jonah cut through their communication glitches and persuade Charlie that the next level up for them should be forever?

I just love romances that feature smart characters - ones that sound smart and act smart, not just ones where we are told the hero or heroine was top of their class in medical school or the best CEO that ever was. And Charlie and Jonah are definitely smart - nerds through and through. It was fun watching them make their way around the awkwardness of turning their virtual flirting into something more real-life. I'm a self-proclaimed nerd, so I loved the witty and snarky moments between these two, but the geeky gamer parts of the story were a little too much for me to take. Even so, an enjoyable read.
