Brad Hewitt is a geek to the core. He’d
much rather spend his days engrossed in the work he loved than
socializing and worrying about moving up the corporate
ladder. Brad also didn’t understand why anyone could be taken
in by the overly commercialized holiday of Valentine’s Day.
Being hired by Wilson and Wilkes Toys
would have been a dream come true for Stephanie Brinks, except
that she wasn’t hired as a designer, she was working as a
typist. At least it was a job. Having to temporarily share
an office with a boorish geek was just a “perk” she’d put up
with until space on her floor was available.
After Brad realizes that he needs some
coaching with speaking to a lady, he decides that Stephanie is
the best person to help. After all, she’s a woman, and he
finds her easy to talk to.
Romancing the Geek is perfectly titled. There
is no better way to describe Brad than to call him a geek.
He’s at his best when working on his programming. Brad knows
Stephanie’s the perfect person to help him overcome some of
his inhibitions when dealing with women, but soon they each
realize that they are perfect for each other. I fell in love
with Romancing the Geek and enjoyed watching
Stephanie’s training of Brad; his attempts and triumphs were
entertaining. I look forward to more stories by Terry Odell.
