Review: America’s Geekheart by Pippa Grant

america's geekheartTitle: America’s Geekheart

Author: Pippa Grant

Year of publication: Officially released today! I was kindly given a copy to read and review

The heroine: Environmental engineer/blogger Sarah Dempsey

The hero: Billionaire underwear model/fashion designer/ex-boy band member Beck Ryder

The blurb: 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.

Standalone or series: This is book two in the Bro Code series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: I didn’t think I would enjoy a book more than Flirting with the Frenemy, but then I read America’s Geekheart and Pippa Grant proved me wrong.

This book was fabulous in every way that mattered. Beck Ryder, whose sister Ellie and best friend Wyatt are the protagonists of Frenemy, is an ex-boy band member who now runs a multi-billion dollar fashion empire. He does a lot of good and doesn’t flaunt his wealth, and his extended family and friends make sure his ego doesn’t get too big. But Beck makes a big mistake when what he thought was a private tweet to his sister is instead sent to her next door neighbour, Sarah Dempsey, who runs a blog about preserving the earth and all its creatures. Sarah is an environmental engineer who’s been laying low for ten years, hiding a secret she’d rather the world didn’t know.

When she’s thrust into the spotlight, Beck makes her an offer she can’t refuse – she helps him smooth over the mistake that’s made him public enemy number one, and he’ll help her get her causes into the public eye. Sarah tells herself she’s doing it for the good of the animals who depend on her to speak up on their behalf. She’s not falling in love with one of the most famous men in the world, who also happens to be gorgeous, charming and down-to-earth. She’s not.

Beck’s happy to accept whatever help Sarah can give him, because he has a major problem: he’s about a launch a foundation that will benefit thousands of children with a famous sports star, but he needs the public on his side. The more time he spends with Sarah, though, the more he likes her. When he finds out her secret, he takes it in his stride. He’s not falling in love with the quirky, geeky engineer who’s been hiding herself away. He’s not.

This book will make you laugh out loud, cheer, and completely fall for Beck Ryder. One of the best romance books I’ve ever read. You’ll regret it if you don’t read this book. Promise.
