About the Author

VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON is uniquely qualified to document the nerd experience and has the National Honor Society pin to prove it. Long before brains were cool, she made passes at guys who wore glasses. She eventually married one. Being a smart man, he recommended she write romances. Being a smart woman, she wrote about romantic nerds. When "Nerd in Shining Armor" hit the "NYT" bestseller list, it validated her secret passion and confirmed what she's always known - nerds are hot and getting hotter! The runaway success of Vicki's nerd books indicates that we have officially entered an era of nerd love, which suits her perfectly.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Make-up artist Gillian McCormick's life just took a turn for the worse when she was the only witness to a mafia murder. Hiding out on a cruise for nerdy singletons sounds like the perfect place to hide, especially since she's donned a blonde bombshell disguise that's worlds away from her usual self.

P.I. and bodyguard, Lex Manchester, isn't too keen on a singles nerd cruise but he is keen on Gillian and the sparks that are flying between the pair. His first mission is to protect Gillian at all costs and it's only right that he stay very close to her at all times even if that means never letting her go.

This is another of Vicki Lewis Thompson's Nerd Series although each book stands entirely alone. Having said that, despite this being billed as one of the series and set on a Nerd cruise - neither the hero or heroine were actual nerds or even particularly geeky which made it different from the other books.

This book was entertaining and if you can put aside the sheer implausibility of the plot then it's an enjoyable read. However, I didn't think that any of the characters acted the way they should have if they had really been in the situations they found themselves in and the unlikeliness of this started to grate on me after a while.

Both Gillian and Lex were enjoyable characters but there wasn't really any romance between the pair. I believed in their relationship well enough but didn't really feel the passion or love that they supposedly had for each other. There was a large cast of supporting characters and while I liked them too, some of them were really only fillers and had little point to the actual storyline.

All in all, this was an fantastical and amusing read but not one of the better Nerd books. 3 stars but still worth a read if it's sitting on your book shelf.

This is the story of Gillian who is a make up artist who on teh job witnesses a murder by stiletto heel. This isn't just any murder though as the guy that did it has a step father thats head of the mob. Gillian doesn't tell the police in fear she will be killed and goes to see her 80+ friend who just happens to be going on a nerd love cruise and talks Gillian in to going with her. Gillian agrees and they set about how to make Gillian look different...with a new make over, hair cut and dye she goes from mousy, quiet make up artist to Marylin Monroe lookalike. Whilst Gillian is changing Cora (Gillians 80+ friend) calls some PI friends she knows to help protect Gillian on the crusie. When Gillian meets them she falls hard for Lex Manchester. The story goes on with them trying evade mobsters and keep Gillian from being killed in Limbo contests. Along with all this every single one of the main characters finds love on the boat.

The story is good with some truly funny moments but some aspects of the book are really in the realm of fantasy not romance. This in't a book i would read again....not really up to the authors standard!
