We’re reading our way across America…one romance at a time.
Nevada: Beer and Groping in Las Vegas by Angela Quarles
I know there is more to Nevada than just Las Vegas. There’s Reno, and Great Basin National Park, and one side of the wonder that is Lake Tahoe. But when it comes to the sexy, there’s not much that beats out Sin City, and so when I happened upon the puntastic title of this e-book, how could I resist?
Especially when further investigation proved that its hero and heroine were genuine, bona fide geeks. Or at least, so claimed the blurb:
Can a djinn and a magic slot machine bring two geeks together?
Riley McGregor is a geek trapped in a Good Ole Boy body and as owner of a microbrewery, smart chicks never look at him twice.
Rejected by a geek who wanted to “trade up,” Mirjam Linna would rather immerse herself in work than be the girlfriend-of-the-moment. Stranded in a Vegas hotel, she accidentally makes a wish—a night of hot sex with the man of her dreams. It's granted. She agrees to dinner, but afterward, she’ll say thanks, but no thanks, and see what’s on the SyFy channel. But when they meet, they're surprised to find they had a shared connection in their past. Sparks fly as these two learn to be in the moment, be themselves and find love.
Fans of Star Trek, Star Wars, Monty Python, Firefly and Marvin the Martian will enjoy this romantic comedy.
Now, I am a fan of all of those things—well, maybe not so much Star Wars—and I am quite fond of romantic comedy as well, so without investigating any further I ponied up my $3.99 for the Kindle edition and dove right in.
