"Love at Absolute Zero" is romance about Gunnar Gunderson, a 32-year-old star physicist at the
University
of Wisconsin who's determined to meet his soul mate within three days using the Scientific Method. As he channels his inner salmon for speed dating, he accidentally steps on the toes of a visiting Danish schoolteacher--and his life turns upside down.

"As if Einstein didn't struggle hard enough failing at a unified field theory," says Philip Persinger, author of 'Do The Math', "Meeks ups the ante by tossing philosophy, anthropology, hashish, and love (with a capital L) into the mix. And while we're so sorry, Uncle Albert, in 'Love At Absolute Zero,' Meeks succeeds absolutely."

Editorial Reviews

Red Adept Reviews - Jim Chambers
"The author hit a home run. It's a very good story, very well told." Red Adept Reviews also mad the book one of three Best Romances of the Year.
Small Press Reviews - Marc Schuster
"As engaging as it is amusing, 'Love at Absolute Zero' is, ultimately, a heartfelt study of the tension between the head and heart, science and emotion, calculation and chance."
Amazon Top-Ten Reviewer - Grady Harp
"The magical thing is that Meeks makes us really care about this strange bright naïve nerd... [Meeks] is likely to continue on his climb to one of America's more important writers this decade."
Book Chase - Sam Sattler
"It is impossible not to like Gunnar Gunderson. As he progresses from one disaster or near miss to the next, one views him with a mixture of compassion and laughter, but he is such a good-hearted young man that it is impossible not to root for him." -Sam Sattler also placed it in Top Ten Best Fiction 2011
Raging Bibliomania - Heather Figearo
"A deeply resonant read that manages to be funny without sacrificing its gravity. Highly recommended!"
