nerdgasm (noun): an emotional climax at the peak of intense (sometimes sexual) excitement, characterized by a deep attraction to nerdy things and/or people.
My stutter makes it easy to become the center of attention for all the wrong reasons, so I try hard to stay out of the spotlight.
But when Addison Mitchell breezes into the class I TA for, she turns my world upside down, shaking me out of my comfort zone.
Confident and bold, her wandering hands set my body on fire.
She sees the real me, and she’s still interested.
I’m completely out of my element, yet I’ve never felt more alive.
Fingers crossed we’re not a one-off fling.
I have a lot to learn, but I’m willing to make this work.
I’m going to give her more than a nerdgasm.
I’m going to give her my heart.

Kimberly Reese published her first novel in 2017 and has since been hard at work writing more steamy stories. She grew up in a military family and is currently working on her tan in Arizona. When she isn’t writing, you can catch her reading, traveling, resisting the urge to adopt more dogs, or spending time with family.
Ok, are you ready to see me go super fangirl? Cause it’s comin’.
I FREAKING LOVE THEO, holy crap. I love a good nerd, but I usually go for Alpha all the way. Like nerdy alpha, marina alpha, alpha a-hole, alpha ALL the time. I like the men rough and all “Baby, you’re mine let’s go,” and the girls all “Um, what? No.” I love the push and pull. Even in rom-coms, I still like to see some alpha action happening. I read the blurb for this, sure, but honestly? I saw nerd and signed up for the ARC. Also, Dominique Laura is Kimberly’s book soulmate, and I love her so I took a chance.
THANK GOD I DID, HOLYMOLY.
Theo is SO not alpha (well, except that one time which was super hot but whatever – or if he has to remind Addy about how important she is to him). He’s the kid who had a stutter growing up, and was bullied because of it (I hate kids). He’s learned to own it the best way possible, which for this beta, means rising above the jerks. He’s on his way to get his masters, and TA’s for a class where he meets the beautiful Addy.
Addy is working on graduating and avoiding d-bags like the guys she usually goes out with. While everyone is drooling over the professor in her class, she’s focused on the shy TA. Why? Who knows. There’s that instant connection between the two, which immediately makes Theo’s stutter come back (awweeeeee) and Addy adores it.
So of course I adore her.
This romance is sweet, but it gets steamy too (ask Kimberly’s dad-join her readers group to find out why I find this hilarious). Unfortunately, that means Theo’s gotta get some advice on what to do with a girl… Which will lead you to a very uncomfortable encounter but will probably also leave you laughing and crying. In fact, this whole book will have you gripping your sides because your laughing so much.
Kimberly’s sense of humor is so obviously infused within this novel. Addy and Theo have so much fun together, they will have you laughing, while also cheering for them both to just freaking label it already. JUST DO IT, Shia LaBeouf says so. Your cheeks will be smiling so much at all the fun these two have, all they discover with each other and about each other.
But it also dealt with bullying, and how people deal with their bullies. It dealt with self-confidence, and loving someone for who they are, faults and all. I mean, nobody’s perfect, but if anyone was, it’d probably be Theo. It switched up the roles, having Addy be the aggressor – which was AWESOME in my humble opinion (because two shy people would be so painfully awkward I’d probably cry).
Soooooo what this basically says is that I’m now stalking Kimberly and begging her to write more sweet, sexy nerds because HOLY HANNAH MONTANA I loved this book, so hard.
