Roxanne is stunned when her best friend, Leo, admits his feelings for her-she's so not going there. Lovers may come and go, but true friends are hard to find. Instead, she enlists his help to sign her up for an online fetish dating site. She immediately meets a man who can help her explore her kinky side, starting with a chat session that leads to the best orgasm of her life. While her body's satisfied, her mind can't forget Leo's confession...Leo, meanwhile, isn't giving up so easily. He knows Roxanne like the back of his hand, knows what she needs, and he's more than equipped to give it to her. Subtle touches, a sexy spanking, the most erotic dessert-eating session ever... Leo is successfully proving that computer nerds can be sexual freaks too-until Roxanne discovers his secret. One that could kill not only a potential relationship, but their longtime friendship as well.
Roxanne Simmons has been best friends with Leonidas Papadopoulos for ten years. Which is why she’s shocked when he reveals his feelings for her. Roxanne can’t bear to chance ruining their friendship, so she turns Leo down. Unfortunately, now the idea that her best friend could be something more won’t leave her brain. When she signs up for a kinky online dating site and meets “Constantine” — a man who cybersexes her to the best orgasm of her life — Roxanne is torn. Should she risk her friendship with Leo on the chance they could have a romantic relationship or should she pursue the seductive Constantine?
Smart, gorgeous, romantic… Who could resist Leo? In Nerds Are Freaks Too, author Koko Brown had me drooling over her sexy, kinky, doting hero and it’s because of Leo that I was drawn into the story. I adored him and wanted Roxanne to give him a chance. As for Roxanne, she’s not unlikeable — far from it. Rather, Nerds Are Freaks Too requires you to suspend disbelief or you’ll lose respect for her intelligence. It’s no spoiler to say that Leo is Constantine; Ms. Brown provides significant, unavoidable signs even a reader who has just met Leo wouldn’t miss. Roxanne not realizing it was a bit of a disappointment. That being said, I still really enjoyed Nerds Are Freaks Too. The relationship between Roxanne and Leo is electric and I just adore a commanding nerdy hero. All in all I found Nerds Are Freaks Too to be a fast-paced, red-hot read and the payoff is worth the rocky road to happily ever after.
