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.
This is one of those stories where the insecurities and masks that Lydia and Asher hide behind are very refreshing. They are both nerds who are hiding behind a computer. He’s unsure and lacks the self-confidence to let her see him. She shares her whole life and Asher holds back. Their history also plays into this as well. In the end, they get their happily ever after and it is so sweet and cute.
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more books by this author. Also, developing his friends stories would be fun and refreshing to read. In this story, the nerd wins. Who needs an Alpha (although his research proves he can be an alpha when he wants to!!)
Didn't want to put this one down. She has just become my new favorite author next to Skye Warren, and that's saying a lot because I have read hundreds of romance authors. Wonderful read. This is also the first book I've ever left a review on. Well deserved
This story was wonderful. The plot was developed and characters evolved and there was an HEA. Would highly recommend
