Overview

Nerd to the rescue!

Shy accountant Harry Ambrewster never dreams his crush on Vegas showgirl Lainie Terrell will amount to anything.  But then he agrees to babysit for her precocious four-year-old son Dexter and her drunk ex-boyfriend shows up demanding to see his kid.  Escaping out a second-story window with Dexter isn’t Harry’s style, but Lainie and her son need a hero, and Harry isn’t about to let them down . . .

Alarmed by her volatile ex’s sudden interest in Dexter, Lainie’s desperate to keep her son from harm.  Harry offers his mother’s security-enhanced home as a safe haven for Dexter while he and Lainie attempt to mislead her ex by posing as a husband and wife checking out a Sedona timeshare.  What starts out as a platonic arrangement quickly morphs into red-hot passion, but can either of them trust emotions created in a powder keg?

    Awesome Read

    I'd never read a romance book before. In fact I'm not a big fan of reading. But when I saw an excerpt in Cosmo, I thought it was worth a shot. Out of all the books I've managed to read, this one is my favorite. An awesome and captivating storyline from front to back. Definitly read this book!

    Cosmo was right!

    in every moths new edition of cosmo they feture a new book. I read the little peice they had of the nerd who loved me. and I thought that it was great so I pre ordered the book. I could not put it down. the connection between Harry and Lanie was just amazing, even though he was a nerd. I just recently got married and the ending was perfect because it sounded like our reception. but the truth is I fell in love with a Nerd, and this book is amazing!!!!

    Delightful romance

    In Las Vegas accountant Harry Ambrewster baby sits four year old genius Dexter Terrell while his mother Lainie dances at the Nirvana Casino. Dexter¿s dad Joey Benjamin angrily arrives drunk demanding to see his son who he has ignored since the kid was born. Concerned for Dexter¿s safety, Harry takes the kid, finds Lainie and drives to the home of his mom Rona, who comes up with a plan to confuse Joey. Dexter will remain with Rona while Lainie and Harry pretend to be Mr. and Mrs. Fred Ambrewster visiting a timesharing resort in Sedona, New Mexico.---- Joey tells a bartender that he can inherit billions if he produces a kid but because he had the mumps so the probability of a second child is zero. He needs Dexter to show to his father.---- A crying Lainie and Harry travel to reach Crimson Canyon Resort, which is a dump. Lainie and Harry make love, but she insists nothing permanent will follow. When she learns why Joey wants their child, Lainie wonders if Dexter might be better off with his father¿s wealthy family though she loves Harry.---- The strong lead couple and the terrific ¿good guys¿ support cast make for a delightful tale that is part comedy and part intrigue. Joey is too dumb of a drunk to be a challenge while his latest girlfriend pulls off a stunt that endangers Dexter, but she never appears again. Still the interaction between all the good guys and the retired chorus line make for a fine amusing romantic suspense just do not play chess with a four year old prodigy.---- Harriet Klausner
