Geek Bearing Gifts by Milly Taiden (Review)

Title: Geek Bearing Gifts
Series: Paranormal Dating Agency #2
Author: Milly Taiden
Published: September 2014, Latin Goddess Press
Format: EBook received for review
Pages: 182

Nita Islas wants to find love. She's tired of the superficial relationships and is ready to give true romance a try. She uses the Paranormal Dating Agency and hopes they can help her where all others have failed. What she didn't expect was to find her date flat on his back in nothing more than a towel.

Ky Stone has been in love with curvy and funny Nita since they were in High School. When she moved away, she took his heart with her. Then one day Ky wakes up to find her leaning over him. He's sure he's died and gone to heaven. He has no idea what she's doing there, but he's sure as hell not letting her leave.

Fate, meddling family and the PDA have brought them together again. The chemistry between them is explosive. But there's problems with Ky's neighboring clan and he's keeping secrets from Nita. He needs to find a way to open up to her or lies and unexpected danger could tear them apart...forever.

Reader Warning: This book contains lots of scorching sex (dirty dirty dirty sex), adult language (hanky panky with no dirty talk is no fun), and violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like dirty, raunchy sex with a hot bear on one curvy sarcastic girl, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy!

So now we are two books into Paranormal Dating Agency, and I'm really liking it.  While I liked the first book (link below) a smidge better than this one - Geek Bearing Gifts was really good!

So now it's Nita's turn to go see Mrs. Wilder to be set up on a date with a shifter.  Mrs. Wilder is awesome.  She's like the Dalai Lama of dating.  You want it perfect, she is one step ahead.  So yeah, I like her.  She's a bold, older lady, and she pretty much rocks.

Nita is Tally's cousin, and she is a lot like Tally.  She's curvy and just not getting what she needs out of the dating scene. In book one we got a bit of foreshadowing of this book when Nita spoke wistfully of Ky, the one guy in the world who made her feel like a cherished person.  Now in her book, she's about to come head to head with her past - and she won't even recognize it.  And THAT is what bothered me.

Ky is an Alpha Bear, he's the geek that Nita once secretly loved - and he secretly loved her back.  So when they have this unexpected reunion he is thanking his lucky stars that Mrs. Wilder and fate put Nita at his door.  Meanwhile Nita does not even recognize him.  Ok, here's the thing - she doesn't realize it's him, yet at the same time she keeps inner reminiscing about Ky the bear that she was friends with, and how this new Ky the bear reminds her of someone she used to know.  This goes on for most of the book and it irritated me to  no end.  It made me think Nita was a bit ignorant. She can't put two and two together, and it's a low point for me.

BUT - and yes, there is a BUT! The romance is awesome.  These two are obviously meant for each other.  The tension is high, the sex is extremely hot, and the flirting is fantastic.  Milly Taiden writes in a flawless way that draws the reader in.  She is and will always be one of my favorite authors.  I love bear shifters the most out of all shifters, so I was excited for this book.  Ultimately I was not let down, and can't wait to read book three!

Hi! I'm Milly (AKA April Angel) I love to write sexy stories. They're usually either paranormal or contemporary with a large dose of heat. My paranormal stories can be anything from wolf-shifters (my favorites) to witches, demons and anything in between. My contemporaries are usually anything from soldiers to corporate romances.
I was born the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, I live in New York City with my hubby, the bossy kiddo and our little dog "Needy Speedy". Don't ask.
When I'm not working some really long hours at the day job, or hanging out in the awful life-sucking invention known as Facebook, messaging my bestie in the UK or shopping with my sis Julie, then I can be found watching scary movies. Buuut when I'm not doing that, I'm usually writing because the voices won't shut up.
I am addicted to shoe shopping, chocolate (but who isn't, right?) and Dunkin' Donuts coffee.
Come on over and visit me! I love to meet new readers!
