Book Description

Book 1 of the Geek Kink series.

He's everything she didn't know she needed.

Allison would rather fix computers than worry about sex. That is, until the newest barista in town changes everything. All it takes is one hot stare with his sinful baby blues to remind her she's not just one of the guys. She has lusty needs only he can fulfill.

Patrick's coffee shop is on the verge of an epic failure, until Allison takes charge of his computer system. He may not know anything about motherboards, but he does know how to take control--in and out of bed. Now Patrick is determined to get what he wants--Allison in his cuffs. His sensual mastery awakens an intense passion and under his command, he'll unlock the geek girl's darkest desires.

A Romantica® BDSM erotic romance from Ellora's Cave

Publisher's Note: Previously published elsewhere as Hardware in 2010.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kinky fun and full of geektastic moments April 2, 2013
By Letitia
Format:Kindle Edition
Rating: C ... Heat: Sizzling

Allison may be a geek, a technology buff who loves her video games and comic books, but she's still one cool chick. My kind of girl, even if I don't pull all-nighters playing Halo (now, all-nighters with a good book - that's me). Unfortunately for Al - as her friends call her - she's just one of the guys. Her guy pals don't see her the way she wants to be seen: as a woman. That all changes when Allison rescues the barista at her local coffeehouse when his register quits working.

Patrick, co-owner and sometimes barista of Perfect Shot, is blown away by the girl who saved his day. Dressed in shapeless clothes with an easygoing, laidback attitude, Patrick quickly realizes Allison has no clue how sexy she really is. And he finds that incredibly sexy. He has to get to know her. When Allison offers to update the coffeehouse with new registers and a top of the line security system, Patrick jumps at the chance to see her again.

Dinner, drinks, and a movie marathon later, Patrick introduces Allison to his world. And Patrick's world is seriously kinky. Bondage, toys, collars, cuffs, and nipple clamps - you name it, he likes it. He even converted a warehouse into his very own Sanctuary. An adult playground, of sorts, for himself and three of his best friends who also enjoy the kinkier side of life.

Even though Allison is taken back by the things Patrick is into, she can't deny that she loves it. She never thought of herself as submissive, but she's thrilled and amazed at the things he can do to her body (as I am... as am I!). But both are hesitant to open up and say what they really want. And when they decide to meet each others friends, it becomes clear they live in two different worlds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun delicious read! And now I want coffee... December 1, 2013
By Jacque
Format:Kindle Edition
What do you get when you take one Dom, add a geeky girl, throw in some leather, computer equipment and a coffee shop? You get Taking Over Me, the first book Geek Kink series by Sara Brookes. This fun sexy story is filled with great characters, great sex and great coffee that will have you looking at your barista in a whole new way.

After reading several books by Sara Brookes I've come to the realization I really prefer her longer books versus her novellas. Why? Because novellas are just not long enough to thoroughly enjoy the characters she creates. Allison and Patrick are perfect! Not that they are perfect. Oh no, they are flawed with complicated baggage and have wounded hearts. That's what makes them so perfect and why I get so attached to them. Lovable underdogs. Patrick is all hunky and Allison, who is the super geek (I love it when the girl's the geek!) is just one of the guys. Talk about opposites attract! I found the building of the friendship into something more very sweet and real. And the sexual attraction and heat between them...YOWZA! Okay, I do have to admit I did rate this book 4-flames even though I don't think it should be but, because of the BDSM aspect, I cranked it up a notch. As for the plot, LOVED IT! It flowed smoothly with a nice build up and all the character introductions had a nice, natural rhythm. About those secondary characters, I simply adore them. Instead of being near blurbs in the story they are contributing factors and enrich the story. The added plus is I know this is a series and I really look forward to seeing them again in another book down the road.

To be honest, I read a the second book in Geek Kink series first so I know what's coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Heroine, Steamy & Well-Written Scenes June 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Taking Over Me is an immensely satisfying story along with being super steamy as it deals with the BDSM lifestyle. This is a story about seemingly opposites attracting and the freeing nature of the BDSM lifestyle as a girl geek discovers her wild side after meeting a sexy barista. Allison has always seen herself, and been thought of by others, as one of the boys. She loves working on computers, reading comic books, hanging out with the guys for video gaming night, and dresses for comfort instead of attraction. She dates, but not very often. She's a strong-willed woman though who's comfortable in her own skin. She thinks herself way out of Patrick's league but he finds her fascinating. Their relationship goes from 0 to 60 on their first date as she's been obsessed with him from their first meeting. The excitement he represents and the fulfilling of her fantasies that he promises has her diving in wholeheartedly to what he offers her. He's a Dom and wants her to be his Sub in some very tantalizing sexual interludes where she is the center of his attention. As BDSM stories go, it's hot but not as graphic as some other titles I've read. There's usage of cuffs, collars, and toys but nothing leaning towards the more darker side. These interludes allow Allison to become bolder, like seeing a butterfly come out of its cocoon. She takes pride in being a woman as opposed to hiding amongst the boys. She's an admirable heroine who sticks up for herself and doesn't let her role of Sub in the bedroom be confused with her actions out of the bedroom.

Patrick's dealt with disappointment in his past as a sports injury changed his future. He now owns a coffeehouse with his brother Alex who's dealing with his own issues right now. Patrick is charming with a sense of darkness surrounding him.
