Talk Nerdy to Me by C.M. Owens Review

blurbtalk nerdy to meDespite the fact it seemed like Base Masters was all over Sterling Shore, I’d never really known much about him, aside from random factoids. Things like…he’s a semi-estranged cousin of one of my brother’s friends, plays guitar in a local band, and he doesn’t get mentioned much unless he’s on stage.

Until…he decided I was going to be his first real-life muse, moved himself into my spare room, and started splashing the walls with pictures of my face next to his lyrics…

His weirdness differs from mine, but he’d be a perfect candidate for my hymen situation. Then I could finally move on to the next personal challenge on my list. The only problem is that he’s yet another man afraid of a virgin.

I genuinely never expected it to be so difficult to lose one’s virginity. I think the world has filled me with false expectations of debauchery coming so easily.

The human element always messes up the plans in my head.

Though she came from a family of musicians, she has zero abilities with instruments; she sounds like a strangled cat when she sings; and her dancing is downright embarrassing. Just ask anyone who knows her. Her creativity rests solely in the written word. Her family is grateful that she gave up her quest to become a famous singer.

Ok, so I probably shouldn’t write this review when I’m hopped up on caffeine, after taking a short nap, only to wake up at 12 and stare at my kindle until this book arrived, and then power read it through until I finished at 6 AM. The smart thing to do, would be to go to bed, take a nap, relax, do ANYTHING but write this review. Because my hands are shaking and I’m not sure if it’s from the caffeine or the lack of sleep, or the mixture of the two. Am I going to do that though? NO. I am going to write this review while my hands shake, and I’m still wiping the tears from my eyes after laughing SO hard it’s not even funny. Why am I going to do this to myself, and to you, the reader that has to deal with my craziness? Because the KWEEN has left us with a book that makes me want to write this review SO MUCH I literally cannot wait until later to do it. I don’t even think I could sleep right now if I tried!

If you’ve read the Sterling Shore series, then Britt has become someone you’ve fallen in love with since Dane rescued her from a life of living on the streets. If you haven’t read the series, but are debating on reading Talk Nerdy, because you heard amazing things about CM, then I seriously suggest you go and read the series first! It’s worth it! (heh, worth it) The first in the series, Hooked on The Game, is free! Britt has charmed us with her blurting of random factoids, and her obsession with losing her virginity.

The elusive Base Masters has been lusted over for a couple books now. There have been debates on how old he was, why he didn’t come around the Sterling parties, and he’s been drooled over by the women of Sterling Shore. We, as readers, followers, stalkers and peasants of CM Owens, have been teased with the few pages of Britt and Base’s story for awhile now. We were given just the tip, and now that it’s finally here, in all of it’s nerd glory, we have to remember to take it slow!!! If we read too fast, it’ll be over too soon. Don’t be a Cait and read it in six hours. Savor it. Enjoy it.

Or just totally consume it and then be mad at yourself for not listening to my advice. Take it from someone who knows. (That’d be me).

Britt and Base’s story unfolds with some heavy stalker moves, hilarious Bananas encounters, RANDY (nuff said), but also maturing. Base and Britt are still young, and had to learn (much like Raya and Kade did) to grow up. Both of these babies (yes, they’re babies to me in my old age of 25) have a lot of growing up to do, and they are so, so stubborn. They’re relationship starts out relatively easy, with some threats from our favorite Sterling men and encouragements from their better halves, but it also comes with naivety. The kind that can only come when you haven’t had your heart truly broken before.

Britt and Base are so inherently different from each other, that they have to learn, not only how to communicate with one another, but they also have to learn to take interest in one another. Base loves the things that other people find weird in Britt, and loves the random things that pop into her head. He loves when she talks nerdy to him, even when he doesn’t always understand it. And Britt loves when Base sings, even when she doesn’t always understand the metaphors. When these two come together though, it is explosive in the nerdiest way possible (sometimes).

In case you couldn’t tell, this book and this series is amazing. If you’re looking for laughs, read this book. If your looking for heartache, read this book. CM Owens, as always, DELIVERS. So now I sit here, like an addict, anxiously awaiting my next fix.

Excerpt

The moment I orgasm he thrusts his hips and fills me so deep I can’t breathe. The muscles in my legs are spasming. My eyelids flutter closed—not sure if they want to
stay that way and drag the moment out behind a curtain of fireworks on black,
or open wide to see the whole thing in perfect clarity. 
They lose the battle and stay closed as pleasure courses through me in waves. My muscles contracting against his cock. The low growl comes from deep within him as he reaches his climax with me, and then the explosion as he comes inside me.
I laugh. I can’t help it. I just smile, and laugh, and let the happiness and satisfaction bubble out of me like some wild child who’s never been let out to play.
“Jesus,” he says, his body relaxing.
I lean my face up into his neck. Smelling the new leather of his jacket, the faint scent
of antiseptic from the tattoo, and aftershave leftover from this morning.
He grabs my hair, pulls it—not too hard, but not too softly either—until my mouth is up against his again.  We don’t
kiss. We don’t even move. We just go still. 
I can feel him smile. I’m sure he can feel me smile too.
“Now what?” I ask.
“Whatever you want, Oaks,” he replies back, kissing my lips softly. Tenderly.
“I’m not talking about—”
“I know what you’re talking about,” he says, cutting me off. “And my answer is still,
‘Whatever you want, Oaks.’”
“But—”
“Shhh,” he says. “Stop thinking.”
I laugh.
“No one can stop thinking.”
“It wasn’t a request.”
“No?”
He
continues to kiss me. His mouth more urgent. His lips more demanding. His will
imposed.
“No. We’re going to take that pizza inside,” he says. “Then we’re going to fuck in a hot shower so we can get warm. And then we’re going eat dinner naked in front of
your fireplace.”
I just smile.
“Any objections?”
“Can’t think of any.”
“Good, because that wasn’t really a question either.”

review

dressblues1

It seems fitting to post my review of this Anthology on Memorial Day. Writing reviews for anthologies is always hard, because you’ve got several short stories in one book; some you love, some not so much. You have to put a lot of work into writing a review, and not giving anything away, and now the books are shorter, making it even harder!

This anthology was harder to write the review for. It was filled with short stories of soldiers, some dealing with injuries in battle, others dealing with the loss of limbs and the lives of their brothers. There’s also a huge trigger in here, because one of the stories features the female point of view in the army. And some of the consequences being female in the military can be.

I love all of the stories told in this anthology, even the one that gave me a tease of a future book instead of giving me all of it. I loved the uniqueness of every story, every character, every experience. Basically, the love stories in this, the stories of healing that are included in this anthology, are worth the price and with the read. Plus, the proceeds are going to help the veterans, by being donated to charity.

So read the stories by these seven amazing authors about couples and people that are struggling after trauma to make it through to the next day. Read about some amazing romances (Manny is so swoon worthy!) and see how some guys (TinMan!) are a little stalkerish. See how these authors will have you begging for more!

I’m swiping right! Review of Tracie Douglas’ Donut Swipe Right

newarcbannerblurbDouglas - Donut Swipe Right eCoverElizabeth Bennett has only ever wanted someone to love, but after several disastrous dates she’s beginning to think the single life will be her lot in life. Until her sister swipes right on a dating app for her, and she finds herself caught up chatting with a devastatingly handsome man. Days later, she makes him a proposition.

One night.
No names.
Just sex.

Will Darcy is at the top of his career, having risen in the financial community as a powerhouse. But he’s lonely and looking for more than the vapid women he meets at the functions he attends. Intrigued by the woman he is calling his Lizzy, he agrees to her terms and a magical night ensues between the two.

But, when the morning comes, and he wakes to find her gone, will one night be enough? Or will they both realize you Donut Swipe Right unless your ready for love?

authortraciedouglasSurviving on caffeine most days, Tracie Douglas lives in Southern California with her husband, two children, two dogs and one really fat cat. She spends her days chasing children and fur babies, all while maintaining the illusion of sanity.

Her nights are spent toiling away at the keyboard, creating a world filled with hot men and strong women. She loves to read and write all types of book but tends to lean on the darker side of the spectrum. She’s pretty handy with a crochet hook too.

Tracie loves to hear from her readers!

Have you ever wondered how Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy would have fallen in love in a world with dating apps and social media? Tracie Douglas DELIVERS in this novella, making us want to eat donuts while wanting to lick the frosting off of Darcy’s (I refuse to call him Will) body all at the same time. She gives us sweet and sexy, insecure and confident, all at the same time. And I loved every single minute of it.

Also, I SEE YOU TRACIE with your reference to Cole Securities. YES. (I may or may not watch to much Ru Paul’s drag race.)

There are many romance authors out there, writing everything from historical fiction, to paranormal. The genre is huge, with new authors self publishing all the time. It takes work, time, money, and talent. There are good and bad books out there. There are authors out there that have huge followings, and some with a smaller following. Some have published a lot of books, and publish them quickly, while have only published a few, and take their time.

I fell in love with Tracie when I read Lost in the Shadows, then I fell in love with her again in Lost in Silence and Lost Without You, both of which I one clicked after reading Shadows (and I still owe Tracie a review of Lost Without You but I have been slacka-lacking!) These three novels are dark romance, which is one of my favorite genres to read, and I ADORED them so hard. When I heard Tracie was writing a novella that was short and sweet (pun intended) in a Donut Collaboration with 12 other authors (bakers dozen!) I jumped at the chance to read it. I was curious to see how it was going to turn out. Dark romance to something lighter? Not necessarily a romantic comedy, but 100% not dark romance.

And I was not dissapointed, y’all! That is how I can tell someone is an amazing writer. It’s not the only way, but it is one of the ways. Tracie switches it up completely, with an absence of blood and gore that my twisted heart loves, and brings us all a delicious gift. Lizzy and Darcy have a bunch of coincidences when they meet, right down to their names. They both think the other is only looking for one thing: a one night stand. What they don’t count on is the immediate connection they have with each other. They fight their instincts when it comes to one another, but ultimately Darcy gets all stalker-ish and finds his woman.

It’s romance so, spoiler, they get together. But these two burn the sheets together. I turned on my A/C when I started reading (also because it got hot AF all of a sudden). Just because this is short and sweet, does not mean that it’s any less sexy. Bottom line? Pre-Order this baby for $0.99, you will adore it as much as you do donuts.
