The countdown continues to the blog’s 3rd birthday at the end of the month.🎈🎈🎈 Did you get acquainted with the guests who have already arrived? If not, click HERE to say hi to Annika Martin’s Kinky Bank Robbers and HERE to Jamie Schlosser’s Good Guys. It’s a fun and eclectic bunch, and this week will further add to the mix.
Speaking of mixing, after stocking up on liquor last week, I’ve filled science lab beakers with booze because the next guests to arrive just love nerdy fun. Now, I wonder how much helium I’m going to need to fill these balloons. *Stares at periodic table* I’m so gonna lose at this drinking game. While I brush up on my chemistry, check out these 3 things I love, or in nerd speak— Iodine [I] Lutetium [Lu] Vanadium [V]—about Renee Ericson’s More than Water characters. 🔬
3. Because you can have science, art, hot sex, humor, opposites attract-friends to lovers romance all in one.
“Don’t underestimate the seductive power of fireworks.” 🎇
This story packs a big punch. It’s got plenty of witty banter that suits this pair well. Foster and EJ are one of my favorite new adult couples because they embrace their different personalities and interests while figuring their way through friendship, love, and their own self awareness one hot artistic or chemistry infused encounter after another.
2. Bold is Beautiful. 🎨
This heroine isn’t timid or meek. Alongside a spunky personality, EJ’s got balls and she knows how to use them. She really could start her own advice column. I bet it would go something like this:
Q. Dear EJ—What should I do about my cheating boyfriend?
A. Introduce yourself to the other woman, tell her that he’s all hers to blow, slap the cheating bastards face, and move on with a better man. Live happily ever after!
Q. Dear EJ—My new co-worker is super hot, but he doesn’t date. What should I do?
A. Ask him if he masturbates. That will break the ice!
1. Nerdy is the new sexy. 👓
Even if you are a card carrying member of the Girls Who Love Bad Boys club, you’ll still fall for Foster Blake aka Fozzie. He’s brainy; he’s built; he’s badass in the bedroom; and he’s a real sweetheart. Yes, even this man of science has a way with words.
“You. I just want you. Anything else is without you.”
