America's Geekheart (Bro Code #2) by Pippa Grant

Remember that time you accidentally sexted your in-laws?

Yeah. I just did that. Except worse. Now my million social media followers are reading and sharing the rude, smartass message I meant to send privately to my little sister...and I’m officially public enemy number one.

I’m Beck Ryder. Former boy bander. Underwear model. Fashion mogul. And I just buried my entire leg in my mouth—not just my foot—modern internet style, and publicly insulted my sister’s neighbor.

Sarah Dempsey.

Also known as the woman of my dreams, who loves geeky TV shows, baseball, and giraffes, who’s just as turned on by food as I am, and who has a huge secret that I didn’t see coming.

Now it's time to grovel and apologize publicly on social media and hope that those same followers who helped start the raging shitstorm will help calm the waters.

Because Sarah doesn’t want the spotlight. For very good reasons that I can’t tell you right now and trying to convince her to be my fake girlfriend to fix this mess and make me look like less of a jackass is worse than taking a kick to the nuts by Jackie Chan.

And I thought modeling underwear made me feel naked.

Trying to start a relationship in the era of the twitterazzi isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.

I absolutely loved this book!

Beck is hilarious and he could easily come off as too silly, or immature, but he doesn’t. He totally owns his brand of humor and loves his life. His love for his family is so damn sweet and heartfelt you’ll awwww…all the way through the book. And all of that makes him the perfect person for Sarah.

Because Sarah…that woman has been chewed up, kicked around and just overall abused by fame. And not even her own fame, the fame of her parents. She doesn’t want anything to do with being a celebrity and stays far, far away from it at all costs, which means getting involved with Beck is not what she would ever seek out.

So, when you match a man who can find the humor in anything, and a woman who has a hard time finding anything humorous about being a public figure, you have something that will either be fantastic or a colossal failure. I’m so glad it turned out being a good thing for both Beck and Sarah.

Pippa Grant is becoming one of my favorite smart romance writers. She doesn’t go for the simple laughs. Her women are smart and know their own worth, her men are supportive and willing to be vulnerable for the women they fall in love with and all of it is wrapped up in a fun package that I can’t get enough of.
