REVIEW/RELEASE BLITZ: Nerdgasm by Kimberly Reese

Series: Naughty Nerds #0.5
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance


nerdgasm (noun):
an emotional climax at the peak of intense (sometimes sexual) excitement, characterized by a deep attraction to nerdy things and/or people.

My stutter makes it easy to become the center of attention for all the wrong reasons, so I try hard to stay out of the spotlight.

But when Addison Mitchell breezes into the class I TA for, she turns my world upside down, shaking me out of my comfort zone.

Confident and bold, her wandering hands set my body on fire.

She sees the real me, and she’s still interested.

I’m completely out of my element, yet I’ve never felt more alive.

Fingers crossed we're not a one-off fling.

I have a lot to learn, but I’m willing to make this work.

I’m going to give her more than a nerdgasm.

I’m going to give her my heart.

4.25 Stars

Graduate student and TA, Theo Cadwell, 23, has dealt with a stuttering problem since childhood. But undergrad Addison Mitchell finds it “adorkable.”

Cutting straight to the chase, the most refreshing thing about this novella is the reverse sexual experience imbalance that doesn’t happen nearly enough in the romance world.  The manwhore and the virgin is so overdone a fork should have been stuck in it a long time ago.  So squeal a little over this scenario where the hero is the virgin and the heroine has experience!
“I may be the one popping Theo’s cherry for actual penetration, but he’s effectively ruining me for other men.”
And it gets better. The heroine isn’t shy, meek, or self conscious. Addy has no problem telling Theo what she likes.
“‘Oh, my God, please do that again,’ I cry out when he presses against a sensitive spot inside me.”
It was a pleasure to read about a heroine who’s comfortable with her body and her pleasure and who isn’t afraid to make the first move.  I also enjoyed the low angst factor; the conflict here was fitting and raised some interesting points. The resolution was a nice turn of events. While I did think maybe Demi overstepped her place, overall the situation was handled with maturity. There’s no contrived drama here, and the plot avoids the tired student-teacher trope dilemmas.

Theo is an all round good guy.  And this story just shows that “research” and good advice can be sexier and seriously hotter than sleeping around. (Oh definitely hotter!)

I’m definitely interested in seeing where this Naughty Nerds series is going. I gotta say, Professor Cohen did sorta steal the show in his scenes so I hope he gets a steamy and swoonworthy book for himself. The Mission Orange scene was very titillating.

Told via their dual alternating 1st person POV, this is a sweet, sexy, and safe romance with positive representations of love.
