❤️❤️❤️❤️💔 4/5 Hearts!
I’ve always been a sucker for nerdy guys, and this book really hit that spot. It’s fun, flirty, and absolutely swoon worthy. Andi Burns is a new author for me, but I’m so glad I discovered her. She created a wonderful world with amazing characters.
Simon, the IT guy at work, finally decided to ask his crush, Elaine, out on a date. Elaine has been attracted to Simon, but in her mind he’s coming off limits. She’s nearly 10 years older and divorced. When they’re together the chemistry is undeniable. Will Elaine be able to overcome her insecurities, and let Simon love her?
Elaine had the best character development through this story. She had a lot of baggage and insecurities she needed to go through. She made many mistakes that I didn’t always agree with. She let her fear rule her. By the end, she learned how to love herself, and accepted who she was.
A lot of nerds are portrayed as not having a back bone, but that was not Simon. He was no doormat. He knew exactly who he was, and didn’t apologize for it. He had no filter either. He constantly kept saying things that had me laughing out loud. Not only is he smart, he was adorable, and, my god, does he know how to dirty talk.
I loved the stories over all theme of self acceptance. The journey of self discover can be a hard one, but with the right support system, like Simon, you can learn to love and accept yourself, like Elaine did. I can’t wait to see what else Andi Burns comes out with.
