Title: Worth the Wait
Series: Sexy Nerd Boys
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Date published: October 6, 2015
I have issues. Like, serious, major issues. And, the last thing I want or need is a man in my life to make things more complicated. Unfortunately for me my roommates drop dead gorgeous brother seems hell bent on seducing me. And, what’s worse is that he’s kind of the perfect guy. Resisting him just might kill me.
I don’t do relationships. I prefer to keep things casual, and I’m always up front with women so that no one ever gets hurt. But, my sister’s new roommate…yeah I might have a small obsession. Or, maybe I should say a TARDIS obsession because there’s a 100% chance that it’s bigger on the inside. What the hell is a guy supposed to do though when he meets a woman who is not only beautiful but also feisty, fun, and way into nerd culture? I may be doomed.
*** this book contains themes of domestic violence, non-consensual sex, and explicit sex scenes. Not recommended for readers under 17
As soon as I read the synopsis, I knew I had to read this one. As hard as it is to believe, I am a Whovian... and there are really not enough books that exist which use such an awesome group of people to base a romance around.
As glorious as a romance between two lovers of Doctor Who is, this was only a small aspect of the story. So, if you haven't watched the show - or you (and it pains me to say this) dislike it - then you can still read this book without any issues. Both Anna and Ethan have a lot of baggage, and much of this story is how they two of them learn to cope, overcome, and become better people despite their pasts.
I related to Anna mostly. Both of us come from an abusive relationship, and many of her struggles are ones I've been through myself. There were times I felt like I was actually watching clips from my past.
There's a lot of laughs, a good deal of intensity, many bits of sexy-times, and a few "WTF?!?!?!?!" moments. I love a book that gives me a broad range of emotions.
My issues with this book were mostly editing related. I felt it needed some work. It's not bad, but it is noticeable. Also, there were a few parts that seemed a little rushed and not fully explained. An example of this would be the entirety of the character Sarah.
Mostly though, I enjoyed reading it. It's a powerful love story about overcoming past hardships with Doctor Who references!
