Remember that time you accidentally sexted your in-laws?
Yeah. I just did that. Except worse. Now my million social media followers are reading
and sharing the rude, smartass message I meant to send privately to my little
sister…and I’m officially public enemy number one.
I’m Beck Ryder. Former boy bander. Underwear model. Fashion mogul. And I just buried my entire leg in my mouth—not just my foot—modern internet style, and publicly insulted my sister’s neighbor.
Sarah Dempsey.
Also known as the woman of my dreams, who loves geeky TV shows, baseball, and giraffes, who’s just as turned on by food as I am, and who has a huge secret that I
didn’t see coming.
Now it’s time to grovel and apologize publicly on social media and hope that those same followers who helped start the raging shitstorm will help calm the waters.
Because Sarah doesn’t want the spotlight. For very good reasons that I can’t tell you
right now and trying to convince her to be my fake girlfriend to fix this mess and make me look like less of a jackass is worse than taking a kick to the nuts
by Jackie Chan.
And I thought modeling underwear made me feel naked.
Trying to start a relationship in the era of the twitterazzi isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
America’s Geekheart is a rockin’ fun romantic comedy featuring a billionaire fashion
mogul who got his start modeling underwear, the geeky girl next door with a
secret the size of California, and more superstitions and secrets than you can
shake a baseball bat at. It stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.

SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW

How is it only now that I am reading a Pippa Grant novel? You don’t need to come up with an answer for that because I already know—I thought that because she was so popular that there might not be any substance attached because let’s just say that I’ve been burned that way before. I was wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

America’s Geekheart is the kind of novel that you pick up and then don’t want to put down until you’ve finished reading. Not only is the conversational writing style involving, but in this case it’s just hugely funny. The one thing that Pippa Grant has obviously discovered is that while the expected can be funny, it’s the unexpected that garners the big laughs. For instance, tell a toddler that “snickerdoodle” is a bad word and then hear the things that evolve from that.

“SNICKERDOODLE PENIS!”

On paper, Beck and Sarah probably seem like the worst couple ever. He’s a (seemingly) numb-brained pretty boy who shines in the spotlight and she’s a voluptuous brain who hates notoriety. But together they are one of the best couples I’ve read about in ages. Frankly, I’m one to eschew book boyfriends, no offense intended to those who adore the concept, Beck, however. Let’s end that sentence there.

Everything about Beck is adorable. When was the last time we read about a hero who is just happy all of the time? For me, never, and I’m wondering why. What’s so cool about a bad boy when you could have a happy guy?

As cute as Beck is, Sarah is equally kickass. Sarah is the one who changes and discovers herself in the process. While we suspect she’s always been strong, she grows stronger.

And, the background characters. Let’s just say if I could hang out with this crowd every once in a while I’d be a seriously happy camper (obviously because seriously happy camper Beck hangs out with them, right?). They are so much fun and so relaxed and nerdy and fun…I said that already, didn’t I?

So, I loved this book, seriously loved it, and I won’t be turning down any opportunities to read and review Pippa Grant again.

Who would love this book? Readers who love romantic comedy of the slapstick variety. Readers who love characters to say and do slightly outrageous things. Readers who support environmental causes. Readers who love sexy, happy guys.

Man, do I wish that picture had been on the cover of the book I received!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
