The Geek Next Door by Lauren Fraser

Just finished reading The Geek Next Door by Lauren Fraser.  This really was a fun read.  The chemistry between the characters was hot and the obvious differences in their personalities made them that much more interesting.  This was a great story.  There were a few slow spots, a little more background on the characters and more about the situation they were in would have been nice but it in no way detracted from the actual story itself.  I find that when I like characters I really want to know way much more about them than is necessary to keep the story flowing and I'm always left wanting at the end.  I realize that too much informatiuon would bog the story down, detract from the basic core of the story.  I guess that's why I like series.  In series you get so much more detail on the characters over the continuing story line.   Short stories, even full novels just can't provide that kind of detail.  That doesn't mean the stories aren't as good, some are just so fascinating that I don't miss the details. I get so wrapped up in what's happening at the moment that my mind doesn't have time to wander and wonder about what's behind all of this.  The Geek Next Door was fascinating, smooth and flowed nicely from beginning to end.  A very fun and enjoyable read.

When the woman of your dreams only sees you as her geeky neighbor, sometimes you have to go to extremes.

Erin Sharp learns firsthand just how sexy a man with a brain can be. She already loved Dylan, her friend, but as their relationship evolves, she wonders if she could finally have it all.
When her career ambitions get in the way of their relationship, Erin has to decide what matters most to her – getting the job she always wanted, or the man she needs and desires.
