Chuck Davidson has an aversion to modern technology. He likes sports, beer, and classic cars. Chuck’s a homicide detective in Boston, and it’s put a damper on his relationships. Hard to find a guy who will put up with his crazy hours. How is he to know that planning the impending death of his newest phone will bring him in contact with a cute geek who just might have a thing for rugged, slightly out-of-touch with the newest gadgets older men?
Herbert Pommerest has never been on a date or even kissed a man before. Oh, he knows he’s gay. He did all the experiments to ensure it was true, not just a rebellious phase or a knee-jerk reaction because women scared him to death. It’s easy to hide himself behind his research and daydream about what having a boyfriend would be like. Saving an expensive phone from an early demise brings him in contact with a street-wise mature detective. Suddenly Herb wishes he knew how to flirt because he’d love to take some lessons from Chuck Davidson of the sensual kind.
Can a geek and a detective find common ground between their worlds before one of Chuck’s cases threatens to put Herb in danger?
A geek and a cop. Opposite yes, but T.A Chase brings these two together and drama ensues. There were a few things to love in Why I Love Geeks and an equal amount to dislike.
Why is a homicide detective so against technology? That question is never really answered in the story, but it seems Chuck has a thing against all things tech. A cute stranger on the street helps him out. A geeky stranger who can’t stop talking, but doesn’t know much beyond his scientific projects.
I liked Herb in the beginning but he quickly wore me out with the constant yammering. He’s a genius, we get that. Does important work, got that too. And he’s never been kissed. Or had sex. The usual.
Chuck finds him adorable so I guess that’s all that matters. Chuck I liked, he’s genuine and really a big teddy bear who falls head over heels for a man who keeps him on his toes.
I loved Chuck’s huge, meddlesome family. Got one of those myself so I know the urge to just want to run away and hide.
Great love scenes. Didn’t really buy the plot surrounding the case Chuck and his partner were working, but I can overlook that in favor of the love scenes.
