Overview

Everyone knows that office romances can be risky, but how much are you willing to sacrifice for love?

Julia Hayes is beautiful, successful, sometimes nerdy, and perpetually single. She lives in Seattle and just landed her dream job at one of the most iconic technology companies in the world.

When Julia embarks on a new career opportunity, a serendipitous event literally throws her in the path of Ryan McGraw, the hot and charming VP. As the attraction grows between them, it's not long before Julia realizes that things are more complicated than they appear.

Nerd Girl is a heartwarming love story about a woman at the crossroads between true love and her career. It's about deciding what's most important in life and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it's about not letting your mind prevent you from following your heart.

What can I say? I really enjoyed this book. That one sentence pretty much summed up my love for this book. My only issue with this book was the title. Honestly, I am not really sure why it was called Nerd Girl and am still twirling my hair trying to figure it out. But, I know what you are thinking; if that’s all that’s wrong with the book then it must be a great book, AND YOU ARE RIGHT. It was a 5 star for me. Julia and Ryan were the perfect pair for me. A girl burned by her past loves that she quickly gets over by escaping into work meets a boy who was loyal to a tee and never knew what true love felt like. YES!  This my friends is the makings of a great romance story (well at least to me, it is). While reading this book, I learned a few things about myself: 1.I love the beginning of a love story. 2.I love grand gestures. 3.Sometimes, I get so emotionally connected to the characters in a book that I cry when they cry. 4.I love a couple with great sexual chemistry. 5.And if you give me all four of these, and I will love the story. Oh and did I mention that I loved Ryan, the perfect man to fall in love with.  Who knows when he f—ks up (his words not mine) and is man enough to admit it. Who tries to win you back by saying, “I’m not going to let you end us because of my stupidity?” Who wouldn’t melt over him? Me that’s who. I couldn’t help myself. He really loved her. Oh, did I mention he said, “Love was all consuming. You became my air, my sun, my future. I couldn’t imagine you not in it. A lifetime of knowing someone didn’t compare to being with for only a few weeks. It just didn’t. That’s how I know I’m in love with you. Thank God you came along when you did.” Swoon!!!!!!!!!!!! And I loved Julia aka Jules because she really grew. She learned that love isn’t black and white, but that a great romance is complicated and has grey moments. I also loved how she was focused on her career and found solace in her work but learned that life can throw you for a loop, which isn't always a bad thing. I loved how she not only was a looker but had brains too. She was simply a well rounded girl who was looking for the love of her life. Oooh, I just heart her and was always rooting for her. From beginning to end, I was never disappointed in this book, and I highly recommend it.I give this book 5 stars!

"Unlike my color-coded underwear drawer, when it came to matters of the heart, there was no set of rules to follow" Julia is a Type A personality to a T on her fast track to a successful career at a very prestigious computer corporation. (I kept trying to compare this company to Microsoft, only to discover that is where the author herself worked. This helped me to understand the corporate setting tremendously). While she was lucky in her career, her love life was not so great. She was coming off of a broken relationship of three years when she LITERALLY runs into Ryan McGraw. Well, he runs into her. You will get it if you read the book! This short chance encounter stays on Julia's mind and it isn't too long until circumstances throw them back together. It is only when Julia realizes that Ryan is a VP at the company, that drama and chaos ensues. I was so excited at the beginning of the story thinking this was going to be a fun, lighthearted romance, just what I needed coming off of some deep dark books. I mean with lines like this, what else could it be right? "Time and time again I was unlucky in love, and I don't think it was because I alphabetized my ceral boxes or because I snored sometimes when my allergies were bad." So the book was light, funny, predictable (in a good way) and I am totally digging it. So when I get about to 50ish percent and it seems like the story is tied up in a nice bow, I start thinking, oh she must have a lot of filler at the end. So the book keeps going and I am like hmmmm, why? Then, something so unexpected hit me out of left field. I wanted to yell and scream at the author and ask her why why why would she do this to my Julia and Ryan? Well after that, my feeling toward Ryan change dramatically. Thankfully Julia had her twin Anna there to be her rock and support through it all. "Anna was my best friend, my sister, and my other half. She was my twin and we had shared not only our mother's womb, but nearly every single life experience together, literally, since birth" Julia still loves him and tries to battle through the pain and move on with her life. "One thing I've learned is that you can choose how you handle life's surprises. You can hold onto pain and bitterness or you can choose to take the steps to let it go." With a great group of supporting characters, some laughter, some love, some heartbreak, some shock and awe, some traumatic circumstances, and a nicely wrapped up HEA, Nerd Girl really took me through a range of emotions and I felt it was a good, if not pretty great, read.
