Overview

Covalent bonds aren't just about atoms sharing electron pairs anymore-it's about the electricity that happens when you pair two geeks together. This anthology celebrates geeks of all kinds (enthusiasts, be it for comics, Dr. Who, movies, gaming, computers, or even grammar), and allows them to step out of their traditional supporting roles and into the shoes of the romantic lead. Forget the old stereotypes: geeks are sexy.

Featuring nine stories ranging from sweet to hot, by authors G.G. Andrew, Laura VanArendonk Baugh, Tellulah Darling, Mara Malins, Jeremiah Murphy, Marie Piper, Charlotte M. Ray, Wendy Sparrow, and Cori Vidae, Covalent Bonds is a chance for geeks get their noses out of the books, and instead to be the book.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
12/12/2016
Science fiction is full of stories of the geek guy getting the woman of his dreams; this anthology sets out to balance that with tales of geeky women landing superhot guys. Heroines include a computer nerd (“The Hacked Match” by Wendy Sparrow), a hardcore online gamer (“Addie-cted” by Charlotte M. Ray), and a tabletop gamer (“Critical Hit” by Cori Vidae), all of whom know what they want and aren’t afraid to reach for him. Some stories are full-fledged romances with happily-ever-afters (such as Mara Malin’s “Classification of Nerd”); others end on the first blush of romance (as in “Better than Chocolate” by Tellulah Darling). Likewise, some are sweet enough to satisfy any romance reader while others are written with apparent ignorance of romance genre conventions, leaving them feeling strangely incomplete. The collection lacks clear aim, targeted to neither science fiction fans nor romance readers, but those who appreciate both genres will find this a rare chance to enjoy two of their favorite subjects in one fun collection.
