Review: It’s All Geek to Me by J.L. Merrow

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?

Jez and his desire to help a friend in need lands him inside of the Temple of the Geek, a comic book store. He discovers upon entry that there is a smoking hot geek that he must become better acquainted with. The problem is that Jez doesn’t speak geek, comic books are not his thing, and there is no way that this gorgeous man would ever give him a second glace.

There’s a very cute and fun premise behind It’s All Geek to Me. Sadly it feel short. I think much of that had to do with the length of this little short. In the end I needed more and possibly an additional point of view. The reason for the initial attraction on Jez’s part is there. Rhys and his attraction to Jez was somewhat of a blank. His lack of point of view left some holes for me.
