Kat Matthews, a starving artist photographer, is stunned when she is propositioned by a rich couple while on vacation in Vale, Colorado. Yet when they throw out the lure of an exclusive interview and show with one of New York's most prestigious galleries, she's also interested. How hard could it be? All she has to do is date their nerdy sounding son and at the same time help him to be a better date after she's gone. Easy, right? Until she actually meets Dr. Vincent Richmond, then things really get interesting.

Once again I am amazed at Ms. Pillow's writing ability. Not only is she able to tell a wonderful story with Bit by the Bug, she also brings it to life. The characters are vibrant and realistic and almost leap off the page. Kat and Vincent are so opposite that it's really surprising how well they compliment each other. Their relationship sizzles just below the surface as Vincent deals with his shyness and Kat with her guilt over taking the job. Once they acknowledge their feelings and act upon them though, the story really heats up. Vincent really comes out of his shell and shows a truly sexy side that surprised and delighted me. Several interesting secondary characters also liven up this truly fantastic story, paving the way for future books. I'd love to discover what happens with Kat's four sisters. If you're looking for a fun-filled, sizzling story, pick up Bit by the Bug and enjoy.

i found this book very refreshing to read and it seem to have a little bit of everything, i laughed ALOT, i worried, i rolled my eyes over the antics of the hero.

Michelle Pillow seemed to have the wonderful ability to make me fall completely in love with both the heroine and the hero and to follow all the twists and turns of the relationship and the heroines complete confusion on how to deal with a absent minded professor.

i usually dont review much but i decided to for this book, it really was quiet different from all the other things i have been reading lately and the characters a truely charming

i dare you to read it and not fall in love with them, im definately going to collect the series

Folks if you haven't read any of Michelle Pillow's books you're missing out. She writes across several genres and kicks butt at all of them. Bit By The Bug is a contemporary erotic romance that doesn't fail to entertain.

Pillow gives us a fabulously intellectual hero (oh how I love smart men) who's geeky and sexy all at once (not done enough and geeks are so sexy) and a smart, silly and warm heroine. Their chemistry is wonderful and tangible and the story is heartwarming as well as funny.

I loved the interactions between Kat and her sisters and also, the reality of what it's like to be a working person who's trying to make her dreams come true.

Another good book for Pillow. As a fan of her Dragon Lords and Lords of the Var Series, I think this series is going to be great.

Kat Matthews is on vacation with her mother. She has a meeting with an elder couple who has hired her to "date" her son in exchange for her big dream as a photographer. Their son is a "bug" scientist and never gets out in the real world.

There is a twist to the contract though-Kat has to get Dr. Vincent Richmond to ask her out, she cannot. Kat eventually takes a job with him and tensions are high. She fantisizes about him all the time as well as he. But both do they know that they are each equally attracted to one another and they think the other dislikes them.

How is she going to get him to ask her? She consoles with her sisters and family. Is there anything that comes between them? Does she leave her job? What about her sisters, does one of them become attracted to him? Do Kat and doc fall in love?

You have to read the novel to get the answers you need. There are some really hot scenes in this book that will leave you wanting more.

I was a little sad at how short this book was (for the price) but have to say it was a great read. The entire story was cute and i loved the relationship between the sisters and parents. I fell in love with Vincent what a guy! Gosh he's the stuff wet dreams are made of. lol
