Summary
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.

Review
This book is my favorite read of 2019 so far. I’ve been building a list of Pippa Grant’s book to read once I get Kindle Unlimited again, but I just couldn’t wait for this one so I plunged in and bought it. And OH, MY GOSH, guys – I am dying. DYING. I made the strangest squee noises while reading this book, and it melted my heart into a pool of goop.

I’m not overly familiar with that tight heat cramping my lungs, but I think it might be my heart cracking a little at the implication that she only sees herself as awkward and weird. Yeah. I think I have it bad, whether I like it or not.


First of all, can I just say that I love a good fake relationship trope. Also, nerdy heroines FTW. And Beck is a DREAM. He’s a total goofball and he’s got a heard of gold (and a bottomless pit for a stomach). He’s basically the ultimate Hufflepuff hero, and the way he treats Sarah makes my heart do strange things in my chest. She’s a geek and sort of a mess, but also brilliant and awesome, and he really sees her. There is a point where there’s the obligatory nerdy girl puts on make-up and a fancy dress and becomes a knockout scene, and he HATES IT. Guys, he wants to wipe the goop of her face so he can see HER, and while he thinks the dress is hot on her he hates it because it’s painful for her to wear. That, my friends, is a REAL MAN. Love forever, all the love, I can’t even verbalize how much I love Beck or how much I love this book.

Here’s some more Beck swooniness:

“How has no one ever noticed before how gorgeous your eyes are? They’re like pied piper eyes. You should have men following you like puppies everywhere you go just for opening those beautiful eyes every morning.”
“Looks aren’t everything.”
“But your eyes are. Your eyes are everything.”


I just – I am die. And then there’s a scene where they’re talking about sex and food (OK, there are a lot of foodporn scenes, lol) and it hits home for him how PERFECT she is for him.

“Sarah Dempsey, I’m going to talk you into marrying me one day.”
I laugh.
He doesn’t.


That’s cuz he is SERIOUS, girl! Ughhhhh *helpless fangirl flailing* That doesn’t even get into the amazing level of nerdery going on in this book with both characters (and their friends). I basically need this entire series in my face RIGHT NOW.

America’s Geekheart is the second book in the Bro Code series, but can be read as a stand alone, so GO READ IT RIGHT NOW, WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE?!?!
