Nerd in Shining Armor (The Nerd Series)

Nerd in Shining Armor (The Nerd Series) - Vicki Lewis Thompson Not really sure how to rate this one. A lot of the book felt repetitive, and I found myself skimming a little. The first half was quite cute though. I was interested in both the idea of a nerd winning the heart of a woman out of his league, as well as the "stranded on a desert island" theme. It's too bad the idea was better than the execution.Unfortunately, once the "hot girl" dropped her image and started to show just how backwoods she really was, I was ready to cringe every time another "tarnation" or some other strange phrase would come out of her mouth, and trust me, this happened a lot. Instead of getting to see her change in accent, it turned into an episode of Hee Haw, which felt a bit overdone.I didn't find the willingness to have sex within hours after being stranded too believable either. Maybe if the couple had shown some sort of chemistry before, then sure. But let's get real. If your plane crashed and you were stuck with someone you didn't want to be stuck with, wouldn't your first thoughts turn to ways of being rescued? The side story of Gen's mom and boss who were looking for her was of no interest to me. The mom was hyper, paranoid, way too protective, etc. If I was Matt, I would have wanted to push her off a boat, not want to get closer.There were some moments of humor, and I thought the book was okay enough to read in entirety, but I don't think I'll be moving on with the series.
