Audiobook Review – Geek Bearing Gifts by Milly Taiden
Nita Islas wants to find love. She’s tired of the superficial relationships and is ready to give true romance a try. She uses the Paranormal Dating Agency and hopes they can help her where all others have failed. What she didn’t expect was to find her date flat on his back in nothing more than a towel.
Ky Stone has been in love with curvy and funny Nita since they were in High School. When she moved away, she took his heart with her. Then one day Ky wakes up to find her leaning over him. He’s sure he’s died and gone to heaven. He has no idea what she’s doing there, but he’s sure as hell not letting her leave.
Fate, meddling family and the PDA have brought them together again. The chemistry between them is explosive. But there’s problems with Ky’s neighboring clan and he’s keeping secrets from Nita. He needs to find a way to open up to her or lies and unexpected danger could tear them apart… forever.
There is so much to love here that I was able to overlook a major plot issue. Sure I rolled me eyes every time it came up or I thought about it, but it did not dampen me enjoyment of this smexy bear read.
Nita is sassy, curvy and fun. We met her in the last book and of course love her already. She is matched with a grumpy bear shifter, Ky, who happens to be her same friend from childhood. Um, here it comes, she doesn’t know it is him because now he is hunky instead of a scrawny geek. WTF, seriously? Is there an abundance of bear shifters named Kyler? Not a common name at all. I will chalk it up to some sort of weird denial she had going on. I kind of wish the big ole bear shifter hadn’t wimped out so much.
Other than that, the story is awesome and uber smexy. Oh yeah, gimme a smexy bear who loves his honey any day!
Lauren Sweet delivers another delicious narration. I adore her pace and the energy of the read. She has a real way with the naughty reads. I am very excited to find she is doing the whole series. Distinct voices and engaging characterizations.
