I’m sleeping with the nerd.
The nice guy.
The science geek who wears periodic table t-shirts around campus.

That’s my dirty little secret, but it began long before he unknowingly transferred to the same college I attend. We met at the summer camp I was mandated to work at, and our hush-hush affair started behind the kayak cabin and in the darkened canteen long after our respective campers went to sleep.

When Mick Barrett, rockstar name a complete red herring, enrolls at Salem Walsh University, we’re both shocked the first time we bump into each other. And he’s … surprisingly cold. With goals and secrets of his own, Mick is closed off and uninterested, something I’ve never encountered from the opposite sex.

My bruised ego has no time to recover, however, when he discovers the real secret I’m keeping, one that’s even more detrimental than our steamy summer fling. Agreeing to become my tutor, and help me save my future, the glasses-wearing swimmer, with the body of an Olympian under that punny math sweatshirt, begins to grow on me. Again.

Except we both have bigger things to focus on than sneaking around. Plus, we’re not made for each other. He’s aiming to be the next doctor of our generation, while I’m just hoping to survive my Saturday morning hangover.

Too bad our bodies, and hearts, start to believe otherwise.
Which has me questioning; can my dirty little secret become a happily ever after?

Nerdy Little Secret by Carrie Aarons
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a book who starts of by making me think I could never like the heroine because I got the feeling she was immature and shallow. But Carrie Aarons has made me a believer. I really didn’t like Jolie at the beginning. But when her relationship with Mick started to develop you get to see there is more to her than meets the eye.
I absolutely adored Mick. He was all a girl could ask for. He was funny, smart, thoughtful and loving. A total package.

Their relationship had ups and downs but they worked through them and ended up having more than they could possible hope for. Another great read from this author.
