The Geek Job by Eve Langlais
Lexie was too much of an Alpha to even try pretending she was just another pack female. After tearing into one too many of the pack males, she was banished and now makes her living on her own terms. Right now her terms are playing body guard and pretend girlfriend to a geeky scientist working on the vamp problem, sunlight = steaming pile of goo. Anthony was tongue tied when the most gorgeous woman he’s ever seen speaks to him. He can’t believe his good fortune when she actually seems interested, he’s a scientist who lives his life by facts and hard evidence, but she might just convince him to believe in the myth of love at first sight.
Eve has given us another of her funny and uber sexy stories with The Geek Job. Filled with a ton of her trademark snark and graphically explicit sex, this book just adds another notch in Ms. Langlais' already filled posts as a major star in women's erotic romance. At first I was a bit thrown off by her choice of hero, and was wondering if she could actually manage to make him a match for our viciously alpha heroine. Shame on me for being a "doubting Thomas". Of course she does, and in splendid fashion. If you're looking for tender, sweet and gentle...look elsewhere cuz it ain't here. Nor are there any playful euphemisms like swollen love python or glistening flower petals. It's all put out on the table in every raunchy, delicious detail.
Lest you think it's all rollicking sex, there is always an intelligent and entertaining story filled with well developed characters. Eve Langlais creates some of my favorite feisty and fierce heroines. Not a twit (yes, I mean twit) in the bunch. If you're in the mood for something playful and fun that is guaranteed to knock the chill off this autumn nights, check out The Geek Job.
