Hi BookishLovers!! Are you ready to release your inner geek? Emma Shortt, who just happens to one of the best ladies I know, has her first Entangled Indulgence =out today. You all know I love the Indulgence and with Emma added to it, it just got better.
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?
About The Author
As a kid Emma wanted to be an astronaut, or maybe Captain Janeway. Because she didn’t really think her career choices through very well, she ended up in an everyday geek joob, crunching numbers and sighing over syntax. It seemed a long way from the stars and in an effort to escape, Emma decided to get serious about her other passion. Writing. Several years later and Emma has yet to walk on the moon or sit in the Captain’s chair, but she is still writing. She scribbles stories in all sorts of genres, contemporary, paranormal, postapocalyptic, historical, sci-fi…if she hasn’t tried it yet she will before long. The only common theme is romance. A hopeless romantic, everything Emma writes has a love story in there somewhere. She lives on the west coat of England with her very Greek husband and teenage kiddos. Apart form all things geek, reading is her main hobby, and she likes nothing better than getting home from a hard day at work and curling up with a book, though sometimes she gets home and writes one instead.
Rating: 5 very huge, very full glasses of wine!
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!
So tell me, what’s your geeky indulgence?
