It’s no secret that I find Savannah Blevin’s books totally worth the read. I’ve done her whole hockey romance series and couldn’t find a fault. So when I heard she had a new book coming, I reached out and demanded a spot on her review team. So let’s take a look at Confessions of a Nerdoholic!
Heat Level: ♥♥♥
Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers
Genre: New Adult Romantic Comedy
Much like many of us, Eloise Duncan has a type; tall, handsome, bespectacled, and clothed in video game t-shirts and skinny jeans. Give the guy a book, and that nerd is right up Eloise’s ally. She spies the perfect specimen in the library, making for more than a few distracted study sessions, which is bad news for Eloise, since she’s failing her anatomy class. If she flunks out, her dad will force her to move to the other side of the country and give up the college she loves and the bakery she works for.
Oliver Edwards is just the man Eloise needs to see…about passing anatomy. He trades tutoring for some of her famous baked goods, but more than an oven will be heating things up when they take anatomy, add in some chemistry, and end up with a big bang. But when Eloise’s father threatens to make good on his promise, the pair are suddenly on a deadline with a possible end to their romance in sight.
As always, Blevins mixes comedy and romance to create something fun and sweet that isn’t over the top or corny. There’s also just the right amount of heat to warm up your winter, without making you feel like a perv! You can identify with Eloise, who is just a little bit different than the other girls, and you swoon over Oliver, who offers everything a romance hero should be in a nerdy little package that’s both hot and intelligent. Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a little laugh with their literature.
