Title: Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts
Author Name & Publisher: Charlie Cochet (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: August 19th, 2015 — 68 pages
Julian “Quinn” Quinetro, a gruff, tough Miami SWAT officer, has been injured on the job, and all he’s looking for is a little peace and quiet to recover—difficult to achieve with his large Cuban family. An adventure in picking up his prescriptions puts him in the path of his geeky, brownie-baking neighbor, Spencer Morgan. Spencer sweeps into Quinn’s life like a tropical storm of sunshine and rainbows. Not surprisingly, it’s chaos at first sight. Quinn’s in need of a little tender loving care, and Spencer decides he’s just the man for the job. Their very different lives might clash, but they might also find some common ground—and maybe more.
Quinn is a funny, loves to cook in his free time, geeky, puts others first type of guy. He has had a crush on his next door neighbor for the past year. He finally formally introduced himself to Spencer after Spencer was shot when him and his SWAT team raided a home.
It is a disaster of a first meeting to say the least and I honestly was not sure if Soencer would want to see Quinn again after there first disastrous encounter.
This was really a good book. I was not a fan of Spencers friend Javier. He was really a jerk.
This was a great short story that flowed really well. There was no dull moments and I just wished it would have been longer. Great book.
This review is for the audiobook, read by Michael Stellman.
This is a sweet story, light and fun. And Michael really brings the story to life in his reading of it.
Quinn and Spencer are fun characters, and their progression from friends to lovers happens in a light-hearted and natural way. This book is focused much more on relationship building than on sex. So the sex scenes are well done and hot, but infrequent.
I highly recommend this to someone looking for a cute, low-angst romance.
