I’m so incredibly excited to share Kimberly Reese’s latest book with you! She is one of my absolute favorite authors and sweetest people around. Check out the blurb and steamy teasers and then stick around for my FIVE review. ❤
Author: Kimberly Reese
Series: Naughty Nerds #0.5
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: June 28, 2018
nerdgasm (noun): an emotional climax at the peak of intense (sometimes sexual) excitement, characterized by a deep attraction to nerdy things and/or people.
My stutter makes it easy to become the center of attention for all the wrong reasons, so I try hard to stay out of the spotlight.
But when Addison Mitchell breezes into the class I TA for, she turns my world upside down, shaking me out of my comfort zone.
Confident and bold, her wandering hands set my body on fire.
She sees the real me, and she’s still interested.
I’m completely out of my element, yet I’ve never felt more alive.
Fingers crossed we’re not a one-off fling.
I have a lot to learn, but I’m willing to make this work.
I’m going to give her more than a nerdgasm.
I’m going to give her my heart.
This book might be a novella in terms of word count, but this story packs a punch and reads like a full length novel. Kimberly Reese has an amazing gift with words and knows how to plot and pace a story evenly and perfectly. From the moment that Theo jumps on the page as a little boy with his mother, your heart starts melting and you know that you’re in for a very special book boyfriend and story. I love how Theo acknowledges his stutter from a very young age, but knows that instead of making him stick out like a “sore thumb” his stutter is what makes more of a diamond in the rough. As he becomes a teen and adult and clearly grows into his confidence which makes him even sexier. I really loved getting to watch the evolution of Theo as a character. When Addison comes along into Theo’s life they end up being able to show each other the different sides of life that the other never fully realized. I of course LOVED the sexy times in this book. Let me tell you, my girl Kimmy knows how to execute a sex scene perfectly. I’ll let the infamous orange scene speak for itself. But I love how she is seamlessly able to weave heart, heat, and humor into her writing. It’s hard to believe that this is only her second published book. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. As soon as you finish this installment you’ll be waiting on hands and knees with baited breath like the rest of us.
