Overview


When millionaire bad boy, Will Thornton, tries to buy computer-geek Kate Kelly’s building out from under her, she refuses to sell. Will might be uber rich, and super successful but she won’t be bullied. Trouble is, she didn’t expect Will to look like one of her fantasy heroes, or to make her heart beat a little too fast. She’s prepared to wait him out, but it'll take every ounce of her self-control to win this game.

With millions of dollars on the line, Will is positive he can make Kate sell. He’s played the game better than anybody and charming is his middle name. Problem is, the snarky, geeky, computer-wiz is nothing like he imagined—impossibly cute and a match for him in every way.

The game is on but can two such radically different people come out winners in the game of seduction?

    I loved this story and it's characters!! This is a marvelous story of two people who despite their differences learn that different doesn't mean not! Geeky Kate, Super Hot Alpha Will and Meg (who deserves a story of her own)! I loved Will's tenacity with Kate, Will recognizes his desire for Kate and doesn't let her hostility and snarky attitude derail him. It's not often a man recognizes the potential for a relationship before the woman! Kate thinks her geeky-ness and refusal to sell her business to be an obstruction and Will feels the geeky-ness is a definite attraction, though the refusal to sell her business does throw a wrench in the cog! But the dialogue is so "spot on" that I couldn't wait to read Will's and Kate's exchanges with Meg's opinion thrown in for good measure! This is such a wonderful "feel-good" story that I can't wait to pick up another of Ms. Shortt's books. I so would of purchased this book if I hadn't received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review!

    Geek girl meets billionaire... This fun romance that captures the popularity of geek culture, but the twist that the geek is the girl and the guy is the "normal"one.  Kate owns and runs  a computer repair business from her home and Will wants to buy the property so his company can move forward with a large development deal. Hijinks ensue and the hero and heroine fall in love. 




    I think the author did an awesome job of capturing scify culture...for example Kate's nickname for will is "the Borg". Katie also references dr. Who and on cos play convention fun. This is great read that will be an instant geek classic.

    Emma Shortt sure knows how to entertain a lady! She never fails

    Emma Shortt sure knows how to entertain a lady! She never fails to disappoint me and I was yet again pleased and giddy to read one of her books. This girl can write. From erotic romances like her fantastically orgasmic Club Smex, to some very hot negotiations with a trio of billionaire’s in her Criminal Seduction trilogy and whacking zombies with a machete in nothing but purple panties in Waking Up Dead, Emma Shortt’s writing transports me from the bore of everyday life into worlds filled with whirlwinds of passion, sex and romance, with a brilliant storyline to boot.
    In The Seduction Game, all of us get to embrace our inner (and not so inner) geek, and for those of you who have your geeky-self hidden somewhere in the depths of your souls, you can now scoop it out and let it roam free, because it is about to get seduced until your toes curl. The slow build-up to the sweet romance that is inevitable was laced with geek-isms and it made for quite a different read. 
    Kate Kelly is a brilliantly written character. She’s geeky and quirky, the kind of girl you can definitely expect to meet in the world out there these days. She’s a gamer and a computer geek (even owning her own computer repair/supping up store) who’s pretty awkward around people and even more awkward around sex and penises. I loved the way I could actually see her grow and change in a subtle way. She may be geeky and quirky but she stands her ground strongly and can throw quite a figurative punch to your heart at moments.
    Then we get the hero. I really thought he was quite a jerk in the first two chapters, but he turns out to be everything a girl could want and more. The exact opposite of Kate, he’s the millionaire who really wants Kate’s building for his new project. Reading the blurb of the book, it describes him as a millionaire bad boy, when he is in fact not a bad boy at all. Will is the nicest guy I’ve read about  in a romance novel and I was so happy he didn’t end up changing his ways and giving up a part of himself to please the girl. And boy, he could come please me anytime. He did, however, manage to grow a bit of a geeky part to himself and I felt tears prickling my eyes while I was bubbling with laughter at the big grand gesture he does for Kate. Yep, Will is the perfect gentleman.
    I admit I did not get the Dr, Who reference, because I have never watched the series, but it seemed like a pretty important part of the book so I googled it. I still don’t fully understand and might just end up watching the series. So kudos to you Emma, because I might just get addicted.
    Now, I’m done talking about this book, why don’t you just go and buy it? You know you want to!

    Geek meets alpha, hot, sexy millionaire bad boy.

    I'm a geek of sorts and this put me on a happy high. Love for the geeks of the world can be seen in black and white and in print. Kate is a sexy geek that doesn't know her own appeal to the opposite sex until him. But is his delight in her or the fact he wants her building. The Seduction Game delivers a hottie meets geek romance that is worth coming back for. 

    Shortt has given me a delight and will have me coming back for more. She wove a beautiful story that entices one to come in and want more.

    Thanks, NetGalley.

    "I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review" So here it is finally :) I really like the "geekiness" of Kate. Emma.. you had me laughing at Kate and Will as they were getting to know each other.. Loved what Kate put Will through :) It is a good book and I am looking forward to Emma's zombies in Waking Up Dead (End of Days Love #1)

    Kate Kelly is stubborn. She won't give into the demands or the sexual seduction of Will Thorton, the billionaire developer. Kate may be a geek but she has her principles and selling her property goes against them, but she is very attracted to this determined man. Where do they go from here? Emma Shortt has done a wonderful job creating characters that I cared about. I enjoyed every twist in turn in Kate and Will's romance. I couldn't put the book down. The dialogue sparkled and the romantic tension was cranked up to high. The secondary characters are memorable especially Meg. This is a fast-paced and enjoyable book that left me smiling.

    This was such a sweet cute story! I loved how hard Will fell for Kate! Kate was amazing character. She was strong, outspoken, and nerdy! Loved her and could so totally relate and see myself in her character. I am so totally into nerds, especially growing up one. She was a riot, loved the minicom scene. Too cute! This was my first book by this author and I look forward to more from her. Would love to see a book about Meg, Kate's best friend! She is hilarious and vivid.

    The Seduction Game was a quick, quirky and sweet story.  I really enjoyed that the heroine got to be the"geek" in this story, so many of the "geek romances" lately have super hot men as the geeks and Emma Shortt turned this on its head.  I loved seeing the how Kate was awkward and shy and was reluctantly pulled out of her shell by the billionaire Will Thornton.

    The story started off slow for and it took awhile for me to find my rhythm with the pacing, then when Will and Kate finally stopped bickering with one another and started seeing each other it was an enjoyable read.  The ending (though very cute) came on fast and I felt rushed reading it, I wanted more chapters to see how everything smooths out.  This is a novella length story, but I would have liked to see this fleshed out into more a full length novel so we can really get to know Kate and Will, not just surface stuff.  

    Emma Shortt's writing was fun to read and I like the witty banter and snarky dialogue.  The geeky references made me snicker and made my own geeky heart smile, but my issues with some of the plot lines and the pacing kept me from really connecting.  

    If you are the mood for a cute, slightly predictable, romance about a die hard geek falling for a billionaire then The Seduction Game would be a great book to 1-click!

    Kate is a computer whiz with her own store. But that store is at risk from the millionaire Will Thornton. He wants to knock the store down because it sits in the middle of his new development. Kate is determined to play the waiting game and hope he just goes away. Will has other plans. He thinks Kate is cute (in her own nerdy sort of way) and plans on flirting his way into getting her to sell. 




    What follows is one of the more humorous and exciting romances I've read without actually becoming a comedy or suspense. Kate was hilarious. She's was perfectly awkward and totally unfraid to own her inner an outer nerd (there is a convention involved). Will seems to be the perfect handsome rich boy, but deep down there's more to him. As Will and Kate get to know each other both of their plans begin to crumble. 
    But there's a third party involved that's willing to do a little more across the line type of stuff to try and get her to sell her store and it may just tear Will and Kate apart as well. I loved this book. I loved the side characters. I loved the setting. I loved the story. I don't think I would have changed anything and I've always had a soft spot for the nerd finding their perfect match.

    This started out slow--I wasn't too sure about it for the fi





    This started out slow--I wasn't too sure about it for the first quarter or so. Kate and Meg had a tendency to talk like they were still in college quite a bit in the beginning, which seemed off considering Kate was supposed to be a fairly successful business owner--"geek" doesn't necessarily translate into can't stop slipping into text speak in regular conversation. Thankfully that didn't last long, though, and soon I was swept into the story.




    Things I liked about this story:




    - Kate and Meg's relationship--very cute and real, and reminded me of some of my relationships with my friends




    - Will Thornton. He came off as a bit business-obsessed in the beginning, but his obvious love for his family (and theirs in return) and his attraction to Kate soon set his priorities straight. Great down-to-earth (even though he's a bazillionaire) hero.




    - All the sci-fi references. Even though I'm not a hardcore geek (I have yet to watch any incarnation of the Doctor. I know, I know--I will!) The Firefly and Serenity ones were fun. Plus, any book where they go to a convention is a win, IMO.




    - Will's "grand gesture"--perfect!




    All in all, this ended up being an enjoyable way to pass the time. I'll definitely be looking for more from Emma Shortt in the future.




    Rating: 4 stars / B- rating
