    Geek with the Cat Tattoo by Theresa Weir This is an amusing

    Geek with the Cat Tattoo by Theresa Weir




    This is an amusing novella told through different points of view. We first meet the cat who is on his third owner and literally on his way to being thrown out the door. I loved the parts of the story told through the cat’s eyes. I didn’t have any trouble suspending my disbelief and accepting everything he professed. I was happy when he followed the drunk guy home and decided to adopt Emerson as his human. The cat also decides he would like his name to be Sam.




    Poor Emerson was plagued with insecurities and having Sam close by his side gave him confidence. I do wish we had been given more insight into Emerson’s past for a more thorough understanding of where his self-doubts came from, otherwise he was well developed and a very likable character. With Lola Brown we are given more history into why she has built walls around her heart and is more leery of men than she used to be. Her concerns were real and understandable. I found their dialogue realistic, entertaining, and captivating. Emerson has the heart of a romantic and I found him endearing. It was fun watching their relationship grow.




    Then a twist in the plot throws a huge wrench in the happy story and everything falls apart. I worry if I will get my HEA (Happily Ever After) when I become invested in all the characters and plot. I am always worried that one day an Indie author will break the mold. It seems reasonable to me to believe it will be a traditional published author turned Indie will be the culprit.  




    For a charming light-hearted romp that will leave you emotionally satisfied, give this book a try.




    FYI: This is the second book in the Cool Cat series but it is not necessary to have read the first book to enjoy the second.
    Format/Typo Issues: I found no editing or formatting issues with this book.

    This story soft, warm and slightly quirky. It's like curling up in the crochet afghan your mother made and that you love more for the hole in the bottom and the fact it's not quite square.
    This isn't the soul-rending book that wrench your life into a new orbit, like so many romances try, this will give you a reason to smile even on a day when you didn't think you could.

    What a super fun, sweet romance.  Emerson is gifted at making and fixing instruments.  He is horrible with girls, especially Lola.  He is so unable to be himself around her that she assumes he hates her.  Then along comes Max.  Max is a cat with some special abilities.  Abilities that tend to make him homeless.  Max and Emerson cross paths and Max picks him to be his new owner.  With Max at his side, we watch as Emerson and Lola fall in love in an awkward and real life kind of way.  I really enjoyed this read.  Fun, witty, at times silly, and a fresh take on an old tale.  I would not really call Emerson a Geek, but he is definitely socially awkward and it causes all kinds of interesting interactions along the way.  




    Max is actually the brother of the cat in Girl with the Cat Tattoo, but this is definitely a stand alone read

    This was a charmer of a book. Lola has been treated badly in a past relationship and our hero is painfully shy. He has a huge crush on the heroine but she thinks he hates her. And along come Max the cat to help them out. 




    Loved this excellent little romance about working class people with talent and a magical cat.

    After going through 3 owners, the last of which literally kicks

    After going through 3 owners, the last of which literally kicks him out of the apartment, Sam finds himself on the street. He's okay with that though. He's tired of his owners choosing him so he takes it upon himself to find himself an owner, because as the say, it's the cat that chooses the owner not the owner who chooses a cat. When he stumbles upon Emerson Foshay he knows he's met his forever home.

    Emerson is a musical genius. He works at a music store repairing guitars and amps but also studies guitar building under a renowned maker. But he lacks comfortable social skills. He can't even talk to the girl he likes without coming across as mean, rude and just not cool. But when Sam comes into the picture everything seems to change, not only with how he acts, but how he is able to finally talk to Lola.

    In the same vein of Girl With The Cat Tattoo, Geek is completely funny, cute and quirky. Sam is such a fun cat, maybe more so than Max. Emerson is your everyday music geek that just can't catch a break with girls. And Lola, sweet Lola. She's pretty awesome herself. Fans of the first novel will remember her as Melody's fun sister.

    Overall, I loved this book. It was fun and easy to read. Nothing too deep so if you need a light read, this is perfect.
