Gadget journalist Christie St. John is more geek than chic. But when research for an article she has to write on online dating leads to the bed of the hottest guy she’s ever met, she knows that if the geek is to keep the hottie CEO, she’s going to have to come out of her digital shell.
Tech mogul Joseph Ashton never expected an Internet blind date to end in the best sex of his life. Yet as the chemistry between him and Christie burns out of control, he can't help but think this woman is out for his money like all the rest. She claims she wants his heart instead – but that’s the one thing he can never give.
I have to say this was a fun read that made me laugh a few times with the things that both of the main pair said/did.
Christie is used to everyone not having high opinions of her. She doesn’t fit in to the typical female mold and her own family doesn’t know what to do with her so why should she think that she’ll ever find a man that will accept her for who she is nerd and all. She’s surprised when she starts to talk to another online gamer and even more surprised when she agrees to meet him face to face. This surprise turns in to a massive case of lust when she sets her eyes on this gorgeous hunk of a man but their first encounter leads her to panic and run. She’s understandably shocked when she finds out his real identity but as they spend time together she wants more than he believes he is able to ever give. He helps her overcome her issues but can she reach through to him?
Joseph is an incredibly brilliant man but he has one major issue. He’s notoriously bad about remembering anything if he gets in a zone working on something that catches his attention. He’s always felt like he hurts those around him with his ADHD and OCD tendencies but in reality people who know him and truly love him have learned how to cope with this behavior. Joseph is shocked when he meets a woman that not only gives him the best sex he has ever had in his life but that he finds himself able to focus on her without a burning need to crawl out of his skin. He’s willing to work on helping her realize how amazing she is and that she deserves more than her family has ever given her but he isn’t quite as willing to believe that he won’t hurt her by his own tendency to forget things that are important to others when he gets distracted by some new shiny.
I liked this in the humor and real feelings that were invoked as both of the main pair work through issues they’ve had since childhood but it does start a bit slow so please hang in there. The relationship was deeper than I originally thought so that was a wonderful thing. Thanks to NetGalley.com and Entangled Publishing for giving me the chance to read this in exchange for my honest review.
