Description from the publisher:
WARNING: There is no sex in this book. Your Kindle or other device will remain at a pleasant room temperature. At no point will your panties drop. Your significant other will be allowed to snore in peace as you read.

Not too long ago, in a town that, depending on your current location, is either not super far or actually quite close...

It is a time of chaotic hormones. 

Two nerdy gents home for winter break have discovered a female gamer at a midnight release.

During the break, the gamer trio manages to reveal the game's secret boss, a hidden enemy with enough power to destroy anything in its path.

Pursued by other gamers who want to be the first to beat this boss, George and Katie race to level up, and, in so doing, restore decency and sexual activity to their personal galaxy...

FAVORITE QUOTE (yes, I'm a math nerd)
"Jeff brings me to Chili's.  I hate Chili's. 
As part of the transitive property, I now hate Jeff."

Yes, Geek Romance – No, this is not an oxymoron.  Finally, a story for those of us who are not the cheerleader/football captains of the world.  I’m so old, that we didn’t have gamers, but we were still geeks, nerds, brainiacs – any of these sound familiar to you?  In some schools it is “band geeks” or “drama nerds.”  This story is a reminder that we’re all looking for our own HEA, with the weird that matches our own.  Hope you find yours, whether he is Prince Charming, or she is Princess Toadstool, or even if your weird is Leisure Suit Larry!

This story is absolutely, freaking hilarious.  The characters were all well-developed and full of personality.  This will be my go-to book when I need a pick-me-up in life.  I loved this book so much that I purchased a copy to gift to my son before I was even half-way through it myself.  He is going to love it; he is even more of a gamer than I am.  Best news is Sara and Pete are going to try to collaborate something else for us.
