** I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review **

First, sorry for the late review, I was supposed to post before yesterday but college kept me busy the last week. And now I have enough time to write.

So... first time I write a review for an anthology. In general, I completely and totally loved it! I'm always up for whatever geek-related thing, and when I saw this book I knew I had to read it. And of course, it didn’t disappoint me, because it was so good.

This time we have seven short stories —all of them with one or two geeks main characters, some settled in a comic convention, and others not, but they still had the nerdy-thing. I really enjoyed every and single story, all their different instant love/chemistry—even the second chances, or just the finally-admittance of their love— were pretty good and sweet, all of them different from the next or previous and by the end I was too sad because all them had finished, most of the time I was hoping there would be more of them, but no :( But it was too short, you know? I know, that is the idea of an anthology, but there were really good plots for books —or at least stories longer than these ones. Anyway, I love it!

I'm happy because I understood most of the references, I have to say that I'm not a lot into comics, but you have to know that not all stories were comic-related, so I was fine, and you’ll be too.

How they fell in love, how they met their lover, how they found love in the ways they did, wow! Also, something I liked was the female characters, these girls knew what they did, knew what they wanted, and such sexy man they all got. Together —each one with his/her couple made my read, a lot much better.

So overall, I liked all these geek short romances, the way all them seem to have all the good parts of this geeky-world, I highly recommend it. By the way, the writing —in general— was good.
Book: +4.5
