Jan 03, Kade Boehme rated it it was amazing. Geek to the core and inked. Or maybe im the offspring of a drunken night between Sheldon and Penny from the big bang theory. Either one would make perfect sense.
I effing loooooved these guys, dude. And the geek guides had me cracking the fuck up. This was a light, sweet read. Just what i was in the mood for. Im totally with another reviewer tho. Kud so im totally what would happen if Ash and Fee had a kid.
The Party Boy's Guide to Dating a Geek
Kudos to Ash for growing up but changing your look wasnt necessary, which i believe his friends pointed out. This was just an adorable, slow burn romance. Enjoyed the geek references and loved that Fee the Geek and Ash the tattooed party boy really got to know each other for who they were beyond the stereotypes before jumping into bed.
This story is adorkable! It's cute but not exactly sparkly paper heart cutouts, funny and a story with heart. I loved the authors play on stereotypes - an insecure-ish, tattooed, good looking "party boy" Ash falling for a tall, toned, handsome "geek" Fee aka Felipe. Ash and Fee are more than just a "party boy" and "geek". They are faceted and I adore them that way. The way the chapters are introduced by chapters from the hilarious Clumsy Cupid Guidebook What was the best thing about this book? It's the kind of story that sucks you in and you won't even know it.
You need to find out about Ash and Fee.

You want them to finally rub one out. Towards about three-quarters of the story, I was really feeling it for Ash. There's satisfaction at the end of the tunnel, smutsters. Another great thing, it was not an instant smut fest.
These two worked on their relationship and built it to something meaningful before consummation. And what a HOT one that was! What would have made it a five star read for me? I was dying to know what he felt about Ash, especially in their awkward 'almost dating' period. I get Fee's socially awkward so his closed-off-ness, I get it. So his abruptness was not off putting to me. And it is necessary because if Fee was not socially inept, it wouldn't have been believable, in my theory. And sad face to what happened at Thanksgiving to Fee.
I loved the secondary characters, they were a great support system for Ash. Plus I have a feeling they are going to be featured in upcoming books from this series. Which I will definitely be reading There's not too much I can dissect in the 'hate-it' pile with this one. It's such a satisfying HEA. I want more to this series Nov 03, Heather K dentist in my spare time marked it as to-read Shelves: Thanks for the gift, Viv!!
Jul 27, wesley rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked it very much, sorry if I repeat myself in my reviews, but that's what I did: I enjoyed reading about Ash's pursuit of Fee, against my fears it didn't get on my nerves because it was dragged out too much. Nope, very believable in pace and development, especially Ash's growing up. I felt as if it was too exaggerated - view spoiler [not the quarrel, but the reason why Fee didn't I liked it very much, sorry if I repeat myself in my reviews, but that's what I did: I felt as if it was too exaggerated - view spoiler [not the quarrel, but the reason why Fee didn't show up at the Thanksgiving dinner hide spoiler ].
I'm looking forward to the next book in this series and I hope I don't have to wait too long. If I were to guess, perhaps Ty's story? I originally read this WAY back when and absolutely loved it. I just finished listening to the audio and definitely enjoyed it, but reading it was better. Paul Morey is a great narrator, I just thought his voice came across as a little too old for the characters.
Also, and this is not exclusively to this book or narrator, if the story has references to another language or culture, FFS please make sure they get pronounced correctly. I find it really hard to believe a character by the name of Felip I originally read this WAY back when and absolutely loved it. I find it really hard to believe a character by the name of Felipe Navarro, cannot pronounce Posole Rojo. Especially when he has the background to prove he should be able to pronounce it. Made me flinch every time. Feb 15, leigh rated it it was ok Shelves: But he kept after Fee through weeks of nonexistent or tepid response at best.

Once he had agreed they were dating, however, his coyness in the bedroom became more an annoyance than a tease. A week or two of caution is believable, but it was dragged out beyond that here. As others have pointed out, Ash was jealous and too quick to jump to conclusions. I have enjoyed other books by one of these authors.

This book certainly pleased many reviewers, so feel free to give it a try and hope for better luck. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. While I had pretty much resigned myself to giving this 2 stars Luckily, I'm in a good mood, so I stuck with 2 stars. The main reason why it gets such a low rating is because I couldn't connect with Ash.
I could not get an inside to his thoughts, reasons. I didn't understand how any of the boring stuff that happened between him and Fee impacted him and changed his mentality.

And some passages were outright ridiculous. Like the moment when Ash arrives at Fee's birthday party, spend less than 5 minutes talking I seriously believed they exchanged only 2 sentences between them and yet Ash was amazed at how easy it was to talk to Fee and that he was indeed a nice guy.
At which point and for the rest of the book I had this one question playing in my head at everything Ash did, questioned or believed: Why should I take for granted everything you say in relation to Fee? I felt in no way compelled to side with Ash or empathise. I also felt slightly cheated as both MC were different from what I expected.

Fee was geeky and shy and yet had plenty of friends, wasn't afraid to get into a fight if need be and had a hot body. Ash was this charismatic tattoo artist who bottomed for anyone wishing, who had awesome and understanding parents and who turned whinny and needy after one look at Fee. The scene that tipped me towards really disliking the book was the fight scene towards the end. After being together for a couple of months and claiming to know Fee somewhat well, Ash just jumps to his own conclusions, acts like a spoiled brat then mourns his impending break-up.
And all because he couldn't give his boyfriend 5 minutes to explain. A very sugary and sappy story with no attachment from my side for the characters. They contradicted the pre-envisaged picture I had of them and I couldn't grasp the mentality they had. Good luck to other readers. Hope they make it inside the characters and enjoy the book more than I did.
Oct 25, Nik rated it it was ok Shelves: The best thing about this book for me was the end. No not the ending but the actual fact that it was over. This book was SO incredibly painful to read. I normally adore Piper Vaughns books but, I just couldn't connect to either of the main characters.
