Blurb:  Jez is on a mission of mercy: to replace a tragically deceased comic book for his injured best mate, Tel. Venturing into the Hidden Asteroid bookstore in London—the temple of geekdom itself—Jez is bowled over by the guy behind the counter.

Rhys is the poster boy for hot geeks: tall, gorgeous, and totally cool. Jez is desperate to impress him, so he bluffs his way through comic book jargon . . . and then dashes back to the hospital to beg Tel to teach him how to speak Geek.

Tel’s happy to oblige, and Jez is over the moon when Rhys asks him out. He’s even more thrilled when they discover a shared love of rugby, something he won’t have to fake for Rhys. The question is, how long can Jez keep up the deception, and what will happen when Rhys realizes he’s going out with a Fake Geek Guy?

Review:  I love JL Merrow, my favorite thing about her is that she writes likeable characters, those that will have you laughing or giggling from the start. The ones that you can’t help but fall in love with, despite all their flaws and all the imperfections.

One of my all time favorite comfort reads is Muscling Through  and as soon as I opened It’s All Geek to Me  I had the feeling that it was going to be the same type of book.

With no angst at all, just like that, no angst. Great characters but above all funny, smart and quirky.

Jez is completely lost in the comic book world but as a favor to his injured friend he find himself in a comic book store. Insert cute boy behind the counter and you have love at first sight. This is where Jez feels he has to learn how to speak “Geek” to approach the boy of his dreams.

Let me tell you, I laughed so hard. The boy has no clue at all. And even if you, the reader, have no idea either about what is going on in the geek fandom it’s still adorable and funny to read.

Rhys is the poster boy for coolness, another lost soul that is just in the wrong place at the wrong time. And you keep wondering if the boys are going to be able to go beyond those first impressions and dig just a little deeper.

They meet, they like each other, and contrary to their first impression of each other, they have more in common than they think.

I loved it. It was fabulous and I will reread it again in the future, I am sure of it.
