Geek Life: Book One When opposite worlds collide, it’s anyone’s game. Proud geek and comic book artist Morris Proctor wants nothing more than to live in semiseclusion with his devil cat and gamer friends. Despite what his well-meaning family thinks, he’s perfectly content with his status quo. The last thing he needs is to date another nongeek hell-bent on changing him. Then he meets his adorkable new neighbor, Theo Boarman, who doesn’t know Star Trek from Star Wars, but who tempts him like no other. Theo has spent the last year recovering from the loss of his parents and trying to play both roles for his teenage brother, while working to keep the family restaurant afloat. Dating is the last thing on the menu, especially with a man who thinks the height of dining is shoving a packaged meal into the microwave. But if Morris gives him one more shy smile or flaunts that kilt he wears so well, Theo will be forced to convince him that a hot summer fling is just the recipe to let off a little steam. When that fling gets serious fast, Morris has to decide if he’s willing to give his heart to Theo on the chance that they’re a perfect mix.

A Little Side of Geek by Marguerite Labbe was such a pleasure to read! I don’t take enough opportunity to read simple, sweet, fun books like this so it was a welcome distraction. The two main characters both have family issues, so I’m not belittling their drama, but they’re both mild and easy to work through. Morris has a lovely, supportive family and he has to learn to let their criticisms roll off his back. He’s also a bit of a commitment phobe, but that’s another easy one to overcome, being has he’s found himself in a relationship with Theo. Theo’s dealing with something a bit more intense, but he’s also got a good support system in place and everything just needs to work itself out. Labbe draws these dramas out throughout the book and it is very well done. There was even one tearjerker moment (and for me, that’s hard to accomplish, so kudos to Ms. Labbe). The cast is full of colorful characters and there’s a sweet peek into comic/geek/games culture. I really enjoyed this one and highly recommend it to folks looking for a well written, sweet story. I'd also love a copy of the amazing recipes Theo dreams up!
