TITLE: The Cop and the Geek 2
AUTHOR: Cat Blaine
PUBLISHER: Evernight Publishing
LENGTH: 74 pages
Geeky James O’Brien was involved in a barroom brawl a month ago where he met Officer Scott Brown. The two clicked immediately, but sometimes geeky James worries he isn’t exactly what someone like Scott would need.
When Scott talks James into going camping, James is a little worried. He’s much more of a virtual camping kind of guy. But since it means a lot to Scott, James agrees. Once out in the wilderness Scott breaks his leg and loses their only working phone. Now it’s up to James to prove there’s more to him than meets the eye.
James is a self imposed geek, ok maybe not so self imposed, but none the less is considered a geek. He is more comfortable inside of his home or office working on his computer or playing video games than being outside in nature.
Scott is a police officer who has a young son and loves being outdoors in nature or playing “manly” sports. The way they met wasn’t the most conventional way and in all honesty you would never think the two of them would be a couple, I guess opposites do attract.
When Scott decides to finally introduce James to his co-worker buddies, he decides to go paintballing, which of course James is just excited about but he does it for Scott. To everyone’s surprise and to his own James actually does really well and his team won, a few times. Scott has a long weekend coming and decides he wants to take James camping, just the two of them for some fun and alone time. Of course James, not being the outdoorsy type is totally nervous and researches and maybe freaks out just a little bit but again because Scott asked James agrees to go, that is when James and Scott finds out just how much James can handle and if their relationship can be a forever thing.
So being book 2 in series I was a little worried about being lost as I hadn’t read book one but as I read that worry disappeared as it can be read as a standalone. Now with that being said I enjoyed the book so much that I had to go out and get the first one just to get the full story of how James and Scott met, and I would suggest you do the same just for the enjoyment of the storyline.
Scott and James are cute together and Scott’s son, Troy is so adorable. It being only 74 pages it’s a pretty quick read and makes you want more, which is a good thing. The interaction between the characters is very touching and pulls you in and allows you to get lost in the story and that is always a good thing for me. I would definitely recommend you picking up this book as well as the first, but as I said before The Cop and the Geek 2 can be read as a standalone.
