Review: Talk Nerdy to Me (Nerds, #5) by Vicki Lewis Thompson

Talk Nerdy to Me brings a new twist to the Nerd Series. Not only is there a hunky, nerdy, male lead, but the heroine is nerdier than her male counterpart! While that was a nice change, the plot in this one is a bit too far fetched, and it seemed to run on way too long, then ends abruptly. It was still a fun and sexy story, but not one of the best from this series.

Mini Review: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner (Twilight, #3.5) by Stephenie Meyer

It was nice to get out of Bella’s head, but couldn’t we have followed someone more interesting. Sure it gave some insight to what was happening with the newborns at Camp Riley, but it was still pretty dull. The main thing that kept my interest was Freaky Fred and the fact that it was only 112 pages. A novella about Victoria, or even Laurent, would have been a lot better than this. Bree had what, 2 sentences about her in the series? At least Victoria and Laurent actually interacted with the other characters for more than 5 minutes and have a story to tell! If you’re a completest (or an uber Twilight fanatic) and already read all 4 books, go ahead and read this one. If you’re just thinking about […]

Review: Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens

Each chapter begins and ends with Sara talking to her therapist, which is something I’ve never encountered before, but I thought it worked really well. Although the story is told in first person, having these snippets gives a bit more insight to how Sara was actually feeling after the events that take place.She decided to search for her birth mother, who she finds, but wants nothing to do with her. Sara then learns that her mother was a victim of the Campsite Killer, who is her real father. Soon she starts receiving calls from her father who wants to begin a relationship with her, or else he’ll strike again. It was hard to put this book down! The more we learn about Sara’s father, the more I got intrigued by […]

Review: Ashes (Ashes, #1) by Ilsa J. Bick

Tired of the failed treatments for her brain tumor, 17 year old Alexandra heads off to go backpacking in the wilderness. While she’s away an electromagnetic pulse devastates the Earth, and leaves few survivors. Soon Alex finds herself hiking through the woods with the world’s most obnoxious 8 year old, trying to find help and figure out what the hell had just happened. Oh, and running from wild dogs and zombies! Eventually, they meet Tom, a military man who also survives the blast. What should have been an adventurous tale of survival and an intriguing mystery of what “the zap” was, was just a boring story of three relatively unlikeable people on an unconventional camping and road trip. Then the tale of one unlikeable person living in the safety of […]

Review: Gone with the Nerd (Nerds, #4) by Vicki Lewis Thompson

Zoe is a bombshell actress who wants to be taken seriously. Flynn is her lawyer who believes in Bigfoot. A very unlikely pair indeed, but their sexual connection forms almost instantly. In fact, it happened so fast, with no build up, that it was unbelievable. But foreplay in the forest on top of a Bigfoot footprint? Yes, please!Unlike the other “Nerd” books, there’s a mystery to be solved: Who’s that sneaking around the forest? Bigfoot? A crazed fan? Flynn’s jealous girlfriend? And why does Fiona only make her special blueberry cobbler during the full moon?!It was a fun book, but definitely not my favorite of the series so far. And I’m kind of sick of these “they got married, had a baby, and lived happily ever after” endings. Marriage and […]

Review: Nerd Gone Wild (Nerds, #3) by Vicki Lewis Thompson

I wouldn’t say this was a nerd love story. Unlike the other books in the Nerd Series, Mitchell is just disguised as a nerdy personal assistant. He’s really a PI who’s been hired by Ally’s deceased grandmother to keep an eye on her. Ally is heiress to a fortune, but she’s no Paris Hilton. She leaves the confines of her Bel Air mansion to stay in a lodge in Alaska to pursue her dream of becoming a wildlife photographer. Of course, Mitchell tags along to do his job, which irritates Ally who is trying to spread her wings a bit after years stuck in the lap of luxury.However, Ally has a crazy, jealous (not to mention kinky) step-uncle who wants to get his hands on the money he believes is […]

Review: Nerd in Shining Armor (Nerds, #1) by Vicki Lewis Thompson

She’s a little bit country. He’s a little bit rock ‘n roll…Actually she’s A LOT country, and he’s not even a little bit rock ‘n roll. But once Genevieve and Jackson are stranded on a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific, he sure does rock her world!In the beginning, I wasn’t too fond of Genevieve. In fact, she was a bit annoying, but soon enough her country-flare grew on me, just as something else was growing on Jackson. Jackson is your typical nerdy guy: smart, good with computers, no fashion sense (but he is colorblind), and completely infatuated with a woman who sees him as only a nerdy computer guy. All of that changes when a business trip goes wrong and leaves the duo stranded on a tiny […]
