Overview

She’s hot, but he falls for her mind…

New York fashion model Eve Dupree has Einstein-level smarts but little formal education. That doesn’t stop her from using her modeling income to finance the building of a purple, veggie-fueled hovercraft in the garage of her Connecticut house. When she meets a cute, motorcycle-riding guy with an electrical engineering degree, she decides to bring him in on the top-secret project.

Charlie Shepherd is only marking time until he lands his dream job working at Hoover Dam in Nevada. But discovering that a gorgeous genius lives in his neighborhood and she needs his expertise for her spacecraft-shaped invention certainly helps make the time go faster. She even plays a mean game of pool.

It’s the perfect setup for romance, until an unknown saboteur seems determined to destroy Eve’s project and she wonders if trusting Charlie with both her invention and her heart was the biggest mistake of her life.

    Just o.k

    This book was just o.k in my opinion. I have read some of her nerd books and this one was not as exciting to me. I liked nerd in shining armor a whole lot better.

    Yawn-inducing material.

    I admit, I have never written a review before, but I couldn't help myself on this one. Save your money. I thought I was going to get a cute, quirky romance, but what I got was shallow, ill-developed characters and an inane, utterly predictable plot. For some, I suppose it could be appreciated for its sleep-inducing tedium, but if that¿s not what you are looking for, consider other options. Sorry Vicki.

    fun often amusing romantic suspense

    While riding his Harley to go shoot pool at the nearby Rack and Balls in Middlesex, Connecticut, electrical engineer Charlie Shepherd hears the explosion in his new neighbor¿s garage. He goes to insure no one is hurt inside a female insists she is okay. He remains concerned that the New York model, who moved next door to him, rejects his pleas to call 911 but Eve Dupree does agree to shoot pool with him. He is the best in town until she wins their wager rather easily. However, Charlie handles his defeat gracefully even though he feels he was handicapped by his wood. He becomes upset when his cousin Rick Banister of the modeling world arrives, but Eve showers her attention on the engineer to his shock and euphoria. --- Eve needs his help with her inventions while Charlie desires her but is heading to Hoover Dam for his next job. As he cannot resist her lure and helps her with her gizmos, someone hovers in the background ready to sabotage any device that appears ready for the experimental design stage. At the same time the kisses between the ingenious model and the engineering nerd send both to the moon without a craft. --- The fifth NERD GONE WILD romance is a fun often amusing romantic suspense with beauty needing to show her brains while Nerdy needs to simply be with her. The story line is terrific when Charlie behaves as a NERD IN SHINING ARMOR and Eve chooses GONE WITH THE NERD over the hunks from her modeling world. The sabotage intrigue provides action, but that seems forced, especially in a tale when the model relishes her beloved talk nerdy to her in the bedroom and the garage. --- Harriet Klausner
