While looking for a fun weekend read, I stumbled upon Cocky Nerd by Kayley Loring. At that point I had not read anything by this author, but right away I loved the cover and the blurb and decided that this would be my weekend read. Realistically though??? It ended up being a Friday night/ early Saturday morning read. I read well into the night, many times saying to myself, that famous line all of us die hard readers say “Just one more chapter” Ha!!!
Cocky Nerd is told in a dual POV which always scores points with me. I love when authors write from the male POV. And let me tell you, Miss Loring wrote Johnny Nerdballs Brant to perfection. His character is hot, super smart & charming, yet there were so many times that I wanted to punch him in the face at a rate of some mathematical equation….read the book, you’ll see what I mean.
I really enjoyed that Kayley didn’t write the typical alpha male lead. It was a very welcome change from the norm and worked so well for the over flow and story line of the book.
A line from the female lead, Olivia, perfect sums up this book:
In just a week, John Brandt has gone from Brother’s Annoying Friend That I Want To Punch, to Person I Can’t Imagine Living Without Despite Sometimes Wanting To Punch Him.
I easily rate Cocky Nerd a 5 Star read! Its fun, unique, witty and steamy! You will not be disappointed. Also, it is currently available on KU!
