It's All Geek to Me by J. L. Merrow

I recently received a copy of It's All Geek to Me from Riptide Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.  What a super cute story!

Jez is on a mission of mercy: to replace a tragically deceased comic book for his injured best mate, Tel. Venturing into the Hidden Asteroid bookstore in London—the temple of geekdom itself—Jez is bowled over by the guy behind the counter.

Rhys is the poster boy for hot geeks: tall, gorgeous, and totally cool. Jez is desperate to impress him, so he bluffs his way through comic book jargon . . . and then dashes back to the hospital to beg Tel to teach him how to speak Geek.

Tel’s happy to oblige, and Jez is over the moon when Rhys asks him out. He’s even more thrilled when they discover a shared love of rugby, something he won’t have to fake for Rhys. The question is, how long can Jez keep up the deception, and what will happen when Rhys realizes he’s going out with a Fake Geek Guy?

I initially checked out this book because I love comics and geekery of all kinds. The entire read was funny and well worth the time. I just wish that there had been more of it. I would have liked to have seen more from the characters. Every one of them was funny and unique. For a short read, there was a great deal of detail but I still would have liked more. The entire piece has lots of British slang which was fun to read. The entire piece was fun but short. I just wish there was more!

You can find It's All Geek to Me on Goodreads. J. L. Merrow can be found on her website and on Facebook. You can purchase It's All Geek to Me on Amazon!  I give It's All Geek to Me 3 Fairies for a fun story that left me wanting more.
