Release Date: February 13, 2020
Series: Words for Nerds #1
Genres: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy
I, Noralee Reynolds, lead the ultimate nerd life. I own a comic shop, have a great group of geeky friends to work with and wear a different cosplay every day. Since inheriting the family business I’ve had no time for a personal life of my own. Even if hosting a speed dating event makes me wish otherwise.
I, Wyatt Collins, lead a hectic life. As a single dad, I’ve only got time for two things – raising my son and being a cop. I wasn’t looking to cuff myself to anyone. Then I crossed paths with a nerdy comic shop owner who made me think twice.
Things are great until a little self-doubt has Noralee wanting to run away.
Can Wyatt convince her that he can be her real-life superhero?

“I’ll speed date if you need me, but I’d rather not. You three are the ones who need to find men. Aren’t you lonely?” Greer hasn’t heard from Neal in four days and we all know it, but none of us have the heart to be mean to her about it. It’s not worth her heartbreak.
“Me? Lonely?” I look at all three of them. “I can’t get rid of any of you long enough to be lonely.”
“Oh whatever. I saw you fall all over that cop. Literally.” Tuesday tosses her hair over her shoulder.
“She isn’t wrong.” Greer gives me a look that says she’s on to me.
“No lies detected.” Rae pushes her glasses up on her nose with her forearm so her fingers can be used for whatever she’s playing on her phone.
“Oh! What if he comes to speed dating?” Tuesday straightens and grins like the Cheshire Cat.
“I can guarantee that he isn’t coming to speed dating at a comic shop.” I roll my eyes and lean to shut off the computer for the night. It’s almost closing time and everyone has cleared out except for a few lingering kids in the comic club. “There is no way he’s single,” I add stupidly. I should have just denied the fact that I think he is the hottest man I’ve seen outside a Marvel movie… or Aquaman.
“So, you admit that you want to check out what’s under that uniform?” Rae stops looking at her phone and blows another bubble.
“He’s been here three times now. What if he did come? Would you do it?” Greer crosses her arms over her chest and stares me down.
I am so sure of myself that I hold up my Mocking Jay salute. “If Officer Collins shows up, I’ll not only participate, but I’ll also buy you all drinks when we go out Saturday night.” There is no way in hell that man would ever show up for speed dating, much less at Words for Nerds.
I love a good nerd book! Although Noralee was a bit more nerdy than I understood. I know of Dr Who, and Marvel but I couldn’t quote them as she does in her inner and outer monologue. But I like that Nora knew and embraced her nerdiness. And Wyatt did too. Even though he wasn’t quite as nerdy as Nora but still interested in her and the store and just all of Nora.
I love Nora’s friends too who embrace their nerdiness as well but also want the best for Nora so they help make Nora and Wyatt get together. Since it seems like Nora wouldn’t fall in line with Wyatt but I think Wyatt liked Nora so much that he was going to chase Nora into a consensual relationship.
Can’t wait to read more of this woman-run comic series!
