Synopsis:

Everyone knows that office romances can be risky, but how much are you willing to sacrifice for love?
Julia Hayes is beautiful, successful, sometimes nerdy, and perpetually single. She lives in Seattle and just landed her dream job at one of the most iconic technology companies in the world.
When Julia embarks on a new career opportunity, a serendipitous event literally throws her in the path of Ryan McGraw, the hot and charming VP. As the attraction grows between them, it’s not long before Julia realizes that things are more complicated than they appear.
Nerd Girl is a heartwarming love story about a woman at the crossroads between true love and her career. It’s about deciding what’s most important in life and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it’s about not letting your mind prevent you from following your heart.

Review:

From the moment I saw the description of this book, I knew it was going to be a must read.  

Sue Lee writes in a way that you forget you're actually reading a book and not sitting in a movie theater watching Nerd Girl on the big screen.  I vividly saw images of Julia, Nerd Girl herself, as she navigates her way around the fast pace of her corporate life to the hangin' with friends, more relaxing pace of weekends and days off.    

I fell in love with every single character in this book. The range of emotions I was able to experience flowed from heart break and loss to true love.  These were people I'd surround myself with; many reminded me of co-workers and best friends.   

I reached a point on my Kindle app and realized I was 30% through and had to jump over to one of my Internet book clubs and scream to my friends from the top of my virtual library shelves, 


"HAS ANYONE READ SUE LEE'S BOOK NERD GIRL?  IF YOU HAVEN'T YOU NEED TO GO ONE CLICK THIS BOOK NOW, SET ASIDE THE BOOK YOU ARE READING NOW AND START READING NERD GIRL WITH ME!  I NEED A READING BUDDY TO TALK TO.  I THINK I FOUND MY VERY FAVORITE BOOK OF THE YEAR!"

I couldn't put this book down.  And then as I reached the 75% mark, I wanted to slow myself down.  I didn't want this book to end- but it did- as every good book does. Every "i" was dotted and "t" was crossed in this book- there were no gaps in the story and no questions left unanswered.  Something important to mention, the editing was excellent- proper grammar, spelling and punctuation added  to the great flow to this story.

This book was every bit of a 5 star book.  I have told every single RED HOT romance loving friend of mine to buy this book.  I'll share this same advise with you, Beauties!

Sue Lee, thank you for sharing your gift.  You are so talented and Nerd Girls was a breath of fresh air- SUCH a good story!                                                                                -MK


About the Author:

I live in Seattle, in my favorite neighborhood, Queen Anne, with my husband and twin seven year old daughters.

After more than a decade of running the corporate rat race, I left Microsoft and finally found time to pursue my dream of doing something truly inspiring.   I wrote Nerd Girl.  I’m a voracious reader and thought it would be a fun adventure to merge my unique history and knowledge of Microsoft with a heartfelt love story.

Apart from reading, writing, and spending time with my family, I enjoy strong coffee, weekend getaways in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, running, Husky football, and cooking gourmet meals.
