Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts by Charlie Cochet


Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts Disclaimer MaleTAG

Julian “Quinn” Quintero, a gruff, tough Miami SWAT officer, has been injured on the job, and all he’s looking for is a little peace and quiet to recover—difficult to achieve with his large Cuban family. An adventure in picking up his prescriptions puts him in the path of his geeky, brownie-baking neighbor, Spencer Morgan. Spencer sweeps into Quinn’s life like a tropical storm of sunshine and rainbows. Not surprisingly, it’s chaos at first sight. Quinn’s in need of a little tender loving care, and Spencer decides he’s just the man for the job. Their very different lives might clash, but they might also find some common ground—and maybe more. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 A-nony-mouseTAG

This is a very quick read so if you have a short period of time and you want a book that will make you giggle, this is the book for you.

While Quinn is recovering from a life-threatening accident, his next door neighbor seeks to help him. His help doesn’t work out at first as poor Spencer makes mistake after mistake. However he grows on Quinn.

I adored Spencer, though I’ll admit I never quite got attached to Quinn as much. IT almost felt like the story went by too quickly, skipping over parts that might have helped me to feel more attached to Quinn. Or, maybe his offishness is exactly what the author wished to convey.

There’s a part in the story that I cringed when I realized what was coming up and I’m glad that although it happened that Cochet had it done and over with relatively quickly. Though, I have to say, I think Javier needs more than just a punch to his face for it. Maybe a few, one for each of the people he invited, maybe?

Spencer dancing around his kitchen reminds me of one of my fav characters from a fanfiction I read years ago. He just had that love of life and the ability to use food to make it all better. Add in his apron and the tighty whities and well…

You’re gonna love Spencer.

4 stars because I only felt connected to 1 of the 2 main characters. It’s still a really good story and I highly suggest it.fourstars Purchase LinksTAG
