Why I Love Geeks (Why I Love… Book 1) by T.A. Chase 3.5 Stars!
New York City Homicide Detective Chuck Davidson is a guy’s guy. He likes sports, beer, and classic cars—fancy gadgets, not so much. When yet another high-tech phone goes on the fritz, he knows he needs help, and he meets a man who loves technology as much as he hates it—cute but awkward biochemist Herbert Pommerset.
Herb’s never been with a man—not even on a date. He hides behind his research, daydreaming about what it might be like to find someone special. A malfunctioning phone causes his path to cross with a sexy older detective, and Herb wishes he’d spent less time studying science and more learning how to flirt, because he can think of some experiments he’d like to conduct with Chuck. None of his considerable intelligence is helping him express his desires to the other man.
Just when it seems they might overcome their differences, Herb’s research puts him in danger. He’s made a discovery that could cost him his life, and Chuck must use his very different talents to rescue the geek he’s coming to love.
This is a really fun book which is exactly what I wanted! Yea!
Chuck and Herb are awful hero names and that makes it so funny. Herb is chatty, socially awkward, virgin, geek genius. So, yeah! Love it. He is funny and sweet.
Chuck is really nice and really hot and a detective.
There a great deal of mayhem, secondary love story, a great family, and fun romance.
The books gets a bit manic and Chuck character could be more develop and there could be more emotionial connection but I had a blast reading this romp.
