Forget Prince Charming by Natale Stenzel
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
A very generic romance. Characterization was lacking - we never really saw evidence of the hero's "nerdiness" other than he owned a chain of computer stores. The story fizzled out a few chapters in. Eh... pretty generic.
Synopsis: Haley Watson has kissed one too many Prince Charmings -- those major hunks with major character flaws. She caught her latest ex-hunk warming up for their romantic weekend by having sex with his secretary. So if all princes are jerks, then geeks -- aka frogs -- must actually be a sweet, reliable, overlooked species. Natural habitat: computer stores and libraries.
But just when Haley has a real live geek in her sights, her new neighbor Rick Samuels -- the Anti-Nerd -- starts in with the charm. Haley informs him that she dates only hotties with pocket protectors and thick glasses.
Rick resents Haley's stereotyping and feels it's time to teach Haley rule #1 of the Genus Geekus ....
Some frogs really are just frogs. And some princes are frogs in disguise.
