A ginger haired cosplaying geek in a kilt … now that's what I'm talking about! "Almost Jamie" is a sweet first installment in Gina Robinson's The Jet City Kilt series. This series focuses on tech coder Austin MacDougall and physician Blair Edwards. These two characters are romantics believing in true love and soul mates. Austin and Blair are brought together by fate and tied together because of their choices of Comic Con costuming. Austin resembles the star of a period Highlander TV show while Blair's a longtime fan of the books and show. Blair dresses as the shows Heroine while Austin as the kilt wearing warrior. They get a lot of attention from the TV shows stars, fans, and media. This leads to them to temporarily pretend to be romantically involved. Blair's recently broke-up with a longtime boyfriend while Austin's on the hunt for the perfect woman to love. Gina Robinson is a new to me author. I tried her out because I'm a sucker for cosplaying geek Heroes and Comic Con. This first installment to the Jet City Kilt series has me hooked on this sweet series. "Almost Jaime" isn't a stand alone book but part of a multi-book serial focusing on Blair and Austin. Gina Robinson has stacked the deck against this duo with nemeses, ex-boyfriends, a fickle fan base, and unhealthy relatives. "Almost Jamie" features secondary characters who appeared in the Billionaire Matchmaker series. You can see there's lots backstory between the characters but not enough to make you feel lost. I'm definitely hooked and I'm looking forward to see what's coming next. Next up "Almost Elinor".

This is the story of Austin McDougall and quarter Scot’s American coder and a sweet, half English American doctor called Blair. Austin is proud of his heritage and dresses as Jamie, a character from a popular historical series. He meets Blair by accident when he hurts his hand. Blair is dressed as Elinor, his love interest on the show. He’s captivated by her from the instant he sees her and things quickly spiral as people think they are the real fictional characters. But after meeting his long time hero Stan Lee and being invited to go on a local TV program to promote the ‘Jamie’ show they start to feel like this is real. The story continues with Almost Elinor out soon.
Almost Jamie is book 1 in The Jet City Kilt Series I found it intriguing that a group of guys write a dating app and then got assistance in sprucing themselves up on their looks, the way they dress and how to interact with women. Geeky guys turn HOT! Blair is a doctor who recently ended a long term relationship. She is attending Comic-Con and fate brings her into contact with Austin when he is injured and she treats his injury. The guys invite her join them on their adventures for the day. I loved following along on their day. I felt like I was there making my way threw crowds right along with them. Will Austin get over his shyness and Blair open herself up so these two have a chance for a future together? I'm rooting for them! Can't wait for Book 2! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
