nerd: /nərd/ (n.) : A single-minded, sophisticated individual who is often unsatisfied with anything less than mastery when pertaining to a subject of interest. (e.g. The girl that broke his heart.)
Scarlet Farrow is disappointed—and a little drunk—after another disastrous blind date. Motivated by too much merlot and too little sex, she journals a longwinded rant questioning where all the real men have gone. By bottle two, she mistakes the tirade for quality journalism and submits it to the local newspaper. When the paper publishes her drivel, exposing her deepest secrets and leaving her mortified, she swears off wine, writing and dating. Having swum in the dating cesspool too long, she's saddest about the wine.
Asher Roan has earned a fortune as the co-creator of a social media network, but his wealth tends to be all women see. Uninterested in a hollow imitation of love, he avoids dating as a rule. He trusted a female with his heart once, and she pulverized it, an experience he's never gotten over or been able to move past.
When Asher reads Scarlet's editorial tender feelings resurface and he confronts the opportunity of a lifetime. Utilizing the resources at his disposal, he diligently researches what women want as he embarks on a personal transformation from geeky introvert to sophisticated alpha male, delivering the performance of a lifetime. His only condition…she must come to him on his terms and her trust—BLIND.
Fantasies blur the line of reality as both Asher and Scarlet yearn to see the truth after so many secrets have been left in the dark.
Couldn’t put it down the passion, the characters, such a good read
An excellent story, well written with genuine characters and an attention to detail that brought the entirety to life.
I adore it!
I kept up reading this well into the night! If you’re considering getting it, get it. I loved it.
A really interesting take on a romance. I loved the fact that both Scarlet and Asher were strong characters but had obvious doubts and insecurities. It was kind of fun to see if Ash would succeed in making himself into the man he truly wanted to be, and cute to discover their soft d/s relationship. I thought they were a really sweet couple and I got butterflies in my tummy (like any good romance should do) about their relationship, especially when they had some argument or other.
Also, loved that there were a few sexy scenes.
