Review – I Heart Geeks edited by Susan Renee Page

 

Synopsis: “I ❤ Geeks” is a celebration of all those wonderful, attractive, and brainy geek guys and gals we love!

Cat-ch Me If You Can, Batman by Stephanie Kayne
Attending her first con as Catwoman, Julie Ward decides to embrace her inner Catwoman and sink her claws into a charmingly dimpled Batman but not all is well at the comic convention. This new dynamic duo has a villain in their midst.

Goldstar by Layla Kelly
Geeky blogger Willow Wisp just landed the interview her fledgling career needed. But when the up-and-coming actor turns out to be her first love, they both discover that even after ten years sparks still fly between them.

In Love & Lore by Rae Lori
After being saved by a literal knight, cosplayer and GrimDark FutureWorld enthusiast Kendra has to decide if the man inside the armor is worth some offline time.

The Whedonite by Aria Glazki
Shy bookstore manager Mira just got a hot new neighbor. Too bad a guy like that can’t like a spaz like her. Right?

Love in Armor by Kristyn F. Brunson
Dean is at GameCon to meet—for the first time in real life—the girl of his dreams, Rose. He knows they’re a perfect match. Hopefully, he can convince her before she finds out his secret.

The Grand Tour by Leslie Ann Brown
Armed with a box of donuts and a too tight outfit, Penny sneaks into the lab of Dr. Ian Rauch, hoping to convince him of her sister’s eligibility for his experimental drug trial. But when she comes face-to-face with the shy scientist, Penny discovers that she may have also found the cure to her loneliness.

Finding Our Way by Bella James
When her high school crush returns home, Ainsley Connors suddenly finds herself neck deep in meddling family and maybe, just maybe, a chance at true love.

I will say for the most part I really enjoyed reading this anthology except for the more technical gamer terminology that came into play like in Love in Armor and In Love & Lore. I have never been a gamer although I have tried my hand at a few of the games. I also have never been to a Comic Con but the authors made it sound very interesting. What I loved most about the stories is that they are sweet romances with a happy ending. The characters each have their quirks or little insecurities to fight to be with the person that makes their heart sings. It may be cliche but it works for me!

I really enjoyed the witty banter between Julie and her nemesis Batman in Cat-ch Me If You Can. I loved to see the rekindled romance between Jack and Willow in Goldstar. I was enchanted by the beautiful patient heart of Penny in The Grand Tour. I  wanted to shake Ainsley in Finding Our Way and Mira in The Whedonite so that they would see past their insecurities to the love right in front of their faces. Overall, great read for anyone who loves sweet romance with a little geeky flair.
