Review: The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl (Geek Girls #1) by Gina Lamm

THE STAKES HAVE NEVER BEEN HIGHER…

An avid gamer, Jamie Marten loves to escape into online adventure. But when she falls through an antique mirror into a lavish bedchamber—200 years in the past!—she realizes she may have escaped a little too far.

Micah Axelby, Earl of Dunnington, has just kicked one mistress out of his bed, and isn’t looking to fill it with another—least of all this sassy, nearly naked girl who claims to be from the future. Yet something about her is undeniably enticing…

Jamie and Micah are worlds apart. He’s a peer of the realm. She can barely make rent. She’s wi-fi. He’s horse-drawn. But soon the pair will do anything to avoid a Game Over.

#NotChilled

Gina Lamm has written a historical that is perfect for people like me who just don’t read too many historicals. It’s the hygiene thing and the women not being equals to the men that keep me away from historical romances. These are not only my issues, I share them with Jamie. Jamie hates the same things and so much more when an antique bureau sucks her into 1816 England. This modern day American gamer girl who loves all things geek is thrust unwillingly into a time that she has no desire to live in. She is also not too welcome. The sexy man whose home she has invaded does not want her or her problems causing him anymore scandal.

Micah is no stranger to scandal. He has just gotten his name off the tongues of the gossipmongers when Jamie shows up in his bedroom with very little clothing on. He is in general not a happy man. He is trying to do what is considered proper and right with his title and life. The last thing he needs is Jamie and her mess. Micah is highly entertaining. He is so worried about his propriety. He has given up one thing in the hopes that the other he has brought into his life will clear the air of his past deeds. Everything about Jamie is so not proper yet he still can’t help being intrigued by the many things that make her so different.

There are several things that can be put into a tale and it is just icing on my book cake. Gina has done just that with Baron and Mrs. Knightsbridge. I love pets and meddlesome mama’s. Mrs. Knightsbridge may not be a mother but she is certainly attempting to hone her matchmaker skills when it comes to Micah and Jamie and that qualifies for meddlesome. She is also just adorable in her attempts to shape Jamie into the perfect countess for Micah.

The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl is just too cute for words. I am looking forward to the next installment in the Geek Girls series. I’m sure Geek Girls Don’t Date Dukes will be just as fun of a read!

Favorite quote, Micah to Jamie: “Jamie for anyone to kiss you, you must remain silent.”
