Cara needs a break from her life, she hates her job, her coworkers, and her mother's attitude has gotten worse ever since Cara had to move back home, lucky she saved enough to go visit her best friend in California for the weekend. Nate's first dream of becoming a NAVY SEAL ended in a damaged knee but his fall back was to work behind the scenes in Hollywood now he works freelance post production one of his jobs is for the YouTube hit show HitPoint in which his high school friends Josh and Brian work on also. (If you read Beauty and the Geek you'll remember meeting these guys already and Tamara and Stephen make an appearance.)
The first night back Nate can tell something is wrong with Cara and with a little bit of libation the truth comes out about how miserable her life is right now and Cara kisses Nate with that everything comes out. Nate kisses her back and they finally tell each other how they feel and start making up for lost time. Things don't continue as easily, Brian has an issue with Nate and starts acting like an ass. The main issue is that Nate likes to tie up his partner during sex and Brian makes assumptions and then there's Ellie. Nate and Ellie had an agreement it was just sex to satisfy a need but several months before Cara shows up Nate ended broke of that arrangement. Only now Brian is all butt hurt because he has a thing for Ellie and didn't know about them until now and is taking it out on Nate and Cara.
Cara's own past issues factor in big, her father practically ruined her life and when she found out that Nate was omitting facts she felt betrayed and hurt and didn't think she could build a relationship with him after that. Cara has to confront her own baggage before she can move on and Nate just hopes she can move on with him.
Overall, it was a really good read, I love Nate. I love all the geekiness of this series and how each one is different. Sidney knows geek and her knowledge reflects in the characters and I love the subtle kink in this one.
Part of a Series: Yes Book 5 of the Gone Geek Series
POV: Cara and Nate
Steam-Level: Warm but not too hot
This is the second book I've ready by Sidney Bristol and I really enjoyed it. The Adorkable Girl and the Geek was a perfect mix of fun, heat and emotion. The themes of being yourself, having the courage to put yourself "out there," being honest and open and taking responsibility for your actions run throughout. I love that the characters grew-personally, as friends, and as a couple. In the beginning Cara kind of annoyed me but by the end I was loving her. I'm a big fan of the friends-to-lovers genre and this book is a fun take on it.
I read this in the Some Like It Geek anthology which I received from NetGalley. This is my honest voluntary review
As with all Sidney Bristol books, the characters are complex and real (and unique). The plot does not include any psychotic killers, for which I am grateful. It was enough to simply focus on the drama inherent in forging a new relationship and discovering the path to happiness with the person you love. I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review. I highly recommend this book.
Wacky, interesting romance. Good read, though not my favorite in the series. Liked Nate, Cara and their friends, especially Ellie.
Voluntarily read ARC for honest review.
