At twenty-three, Kel is buff but awkward. He hates going to clubs but loves to play online games. His current boyfriend Jimmy would rather go out and dance the night away, and often makes fun of Kel for wanting to stay home. After a bad fight, Kel catches Jimmy cheating on him and they break up. Later, Kel later tries to ignite a spark with a local hunk named Gunnar, but their first kiss ends in disaster and the rest of their date is even worse.
Heartbroken and alone, Kel retreats to the online 3D game world of New Life, a virtual earth where people can meet others with similar interests … including naughty ones. At one of his favorite fantasy clubs, Kel becomes intensely involved with Darius, a black knight with a penchant for dominance. Their first meetup is slightly kinky online fun, and soon they realize they have more in common than they first thought.
When Darius wants to move things to the next level, Kel isn’t so sure. Is he ready to make their online relationship reality?
Reaching Nerdvana is a very short, steamy read that made me laugh. It is only around 39 pages long, so I managed to read it in around 20 minutes.
Kel is what some people would class as a nerd. He loves computers, hes an introvert, he loves graphic tees, he wears glasses and is much more of a homebody than a partier. Unfortunately, these are the things his partner Jimmy dislikes about him. After an argument between the two, Jimmy storms off and being the nice guy that Kel is he goes to apologies only find out his boyfriend likes a bit of action on the side. Enter Gunnar. Although things don’t go to plan with him either.
Really liked this one. Loved the way it was written, so much detail, humour and feeling in such a short amount of pages. Loved Kel’s character, what an absolute sweetheart, he’s so relatable. I’m sure everyone can see a bit of themselves somewhere in his character and I loved to see him find someone much more suited to himself than that jerk Jimmy.
Recommended for a quick little afternoon read. Feel good and steamy.
