The name of the book refers to the fictitious dating guidebook which Ash consulted to win Fees heart. Each chapter of the story opens up with a fragment of the guidebook sharing cool trivia to help understand the typical geeks world, even just the surface. Those were fairly accurate pieces of information if I may say so myself, being a self-professed geek and an IT professional. But what I really loved about those chapter openers is how the author associated those to actual tips on sustaining a. But what I really loved about those chapter openers is how the author associated those to actual tips on sustaining a healthy relationship with a geek. I certainly enjoyed and laughed while reading the witty metaphors!
It's all about compromise and if they don't get it they shouldn't get you. Even shy or stoic people can open up every once in awhile to say nobody makes them laugh like you do, or that your performance in the school play deserved an Oscar, or that you look like a freaking supermodel in that dress. Your S. Your bae doesn't have to be besties with your besties, but they should make a serious effort to get along with the people who are important to you.
And they should want to introduce you to their family and friends as well. If your friends and family don't have heart-eyes for them, they might be picking up on red flags that you're too smitten to see.
Chatting with friends should be fun and easy. If you're doing mental gymnastics to avoid dropping your bae's name and incurring the wrath of your friends' haterade, that's a huge red flag. Unless they're jealous monsters, they aren't randomly hating on your S. They know you deserve way better and wish you knew that, too. In all the time you've spent together, you've heard countless hilarious stories about your bae's friends Andy and Taylor.
If you've been dating for awhile and still haven't met their friends, that's pretty suspicious. It's a red flag that they aren't mature enough to really listen to you, and own up to their behavior. And if they swear up and down that every single one of their exes are crazy, it may be a sign you should run.
Obviously, people allowed to think others are cute, but you should feel confident enough in your relationship to know that your S. If they're ignoring you and staring at the girl across the room when you're literally right there, this person is not worth your time. It's human nature to notice when other people are cute, but they shouldn't make you feel bad or insecure every time you go out.
Seriously, get out. They'll do it again, and even if they don't, you deserve someone who would never violate your trust and risk your relationship like that.
If they rarely write back on time and sometimes not at all, consider why you text them back right away. Because talking to them gives you butterflies? Because you're having a fantastic conversation? Because you're polite? And why aren't they returning the favor? If their texting fails bother you, let them know. Your bae might not realize you're counting the minutes between responses.
Or they might not feel the same way about you-in which case, you don't need that in your life. A healthy relationship involves spending time together, sure, but it also includes time apart. Schedul e a date night ASAP and invite them to tag along during the next group outing.
Also, try to talk it out with your bae and figure out why they get so jealous. Look, no one's perfect and relationships can be tough to navigate sometimes. Maybe you did something to bug your bae once or twice. Womp, womp. That doesn't give them license to blame everything that goes wrong in your relationship on you. And in fact, doing that is just hurting the relationship more. When they screws up or hurts your feelings, they have a responsibility to own up and say their sorry.
If Bieber can do it, so can your bae. This is emotionally manipulative behavior. You shouldn't have to go through life cringing every time you say or do anything, worrying that your S. You should feel secure in your relationship and comfortable enough to be yourself around your bae, not walking on eggshells constantly. If they constantly flakes out because they want to play video games at home, or something better came up, that means you're dealing with someone who respect you or your time.
Save your time for someone who will make time to hang out, because they can't wait to spend time with you.
We're not saying your bae sucks if they can't afford to take you on fancy dates all the time. But if your S. Ash is thinking maybe with Fee he could think about forever too. I just loved the hell out of Ash. He is so funny and cute and really shined in the book. I enjoyed how he ultimately stopped trying so hard and went about being himself. I stole this from Amy Lane. He's all geeky but when you let him out of his cage, he sets the sheet and your pants on fire. Omo, I need a sexy nerd.
The build up of the relationship between the men was done very well. It started as friendship but developed in a very believable long lasting love. I read so much sex that most of the time I don't really notice a difference. I noticed it here. Shit was hot. There relationship is also set in motion by supporting characters, characters I am very much looking forward to getting their own books Ahem Jae can never have too many sexy Korean characters.
Kudos to Piper Vaughn and Xara Xanakas for writing such an awesome book. I now dub you guys a Dynamic Duo, and your geeky ways knows no bounds. I now really want to go to a steampunk costume party, so I can drool all over the sexiness. I recommend this, and hope you fall in love with Ash and Fee as much as I did.

I understood the challenge of it and that he was attracted and felt that it was reciprocated, but. And imo Ash really came close to crossing 3. And imo Ash really came close to crossing into stalker territory. And what's with Mari and Jack?
It all happens Off Page, but it had to have happened. The 'conflict' at the end fortunately didn't drag on, but again here I'm sort of partial to Ash, even if he should have behaved differently initially. I never warmed to Fee and that probably diminished my enjoyment a bit. View all 11 comments. I have the same reaction with Mandy. All through the book, I can only think of this: " Ash, maybe Fee is just not into you The thing is, the story is one sided, we only get Ash's perspective.
So while Ash grows up so to speak in the story, from the party boy though I don't get the evidence a lot from here, only from what people 'said' about Ash, or what Ash thinks of himself to this one who care about Fee, but the stand-offish attitude from Fee left me cold. Even when Ash and Fee get I have the same reaction with Mandy. Fee still leaves Ash hanging Fee rarely text, email, phones, whenever he is late and that one huge secret in the end - well, if Fee loves Ash, I think he should at least let Ash in, and confides in him.
Oh, and the way that Fee judges Ash from his reputation which he hears from others and dimisses Ash's worries about Donovan, that doesn't win him any point from me. In addition, they never even give Ash a little clue, that " Fee is asking about Ash sometimes " and lets Ash thinks that Fee doesn't have any interest in him. By half mark, I just don't care about this relationship and wish that Ash ends up with Jae he can cook! If you ask me about the love story itself? I can only give it 2 stars.
View all 3 comments. This is a fun, light story about a party boy, Ash, who falls for a really good-looking, nerdy guy Fee who appears to want nothing to do with him.
Ash isn't about to give up, though, and he goes so far as to buy a manual - a guide to translating geek-speak and behavior, and figuring out how to approach the man of his dreams. If you can overlook the improbability that Fee can be that hot and perfect physically, when he spends all his time in sedentary pursuits, and believe that he can attract Ash This is a fun, light story about a party boy, Ash, who falls for a really good-looking, nerdy guy Fee who appears to want nothing to do with him.
If you can overlook the improbability that Fee can be that hot and perfect physically, when he spends all his time in sedentary pursuits, and believe that he can attract Ash that hard and fast, then this is amusing. It's a bit slow to get off the ground, but a lot of fun. The best bits for me were actually the "guidebook" sections since as the spouse of a geek they rang wonderfully true.
I liked some of the setbacks winced at and loved the awkward bookclub meetingand the secondary characters. Ash begins as a bit stalkerish, and Fee as cold, but there is some nice progression and by the end I could believe they were building something lasting.

You love meeting new people at parties as he entertains guests with his silly antics.
I loved this for all of the Geek Dating chapter excerpts that were included. Those had me laughing they were so clever and on point. Well done. I liked these guys, Ash especially, it took me a bit to warm up to Fee though. He was too much of a mystery and it hurt his character for me. I felt a bit like Carey in thinking that he treated Ash badly I would have loved a POV from him or even battling chapters from their respective guide books. That would have been fantabulous.
This is a simple story I loved this for all of the Geek Dating chapter excerpts that were included. This is a simple story with a little bit of angst. I liked reading how Ash grew up a bit as the story progressed. I'm looking forward to more of these because I want to know what's up with Ty. Oh, Ash Byrne. The man whos first name is the product of his last name. Tattoo apprentice, party boy extraordinaire, flighty, shallow, slutty, satisfied with coasting and looking for just a good time.
Or is he? Ash is so much more than he seems at first glance, and watching him mature throughout this story was enchanting. Its a little bit sad as he begins the change from immature to grown up and hears confirmation from others shocked surprise that hes not going out clubbing, more shock that hes Oh, Ash Byrne.
When he is taken by surprise by his attraction to the nerdy Fee, Ash turns to the Clumsy Cupid Instruction Manual to find out how to get this geek to say yes.
The geek turned down Ash. No one does that, so the challenge is on. So Ash does the cool thing - he stalks him. This story is just all kinds of sweet, funny and lovely. Ash, coasting on his looks, actually needs to work for someone. Fee is nervous, charming and attracted but not giving in. Or so he tells himself. Then he starts to get to know Fee and realizes, the physical is great and the internal is more amazing.
For his part, Fee is a great character, shy, nervous and then charming and endearing. That is real life stuff and it was so funny.
The hard part is that both Ash and Fee have friends who point out the differences between them, mostly on the negative side for Ash. Being from Chicago, I read very carefully the information regarding Ash and Fee making Chicago-style hotdogs and I was pleased to see it done correctly.
There is a line in the book that summed up so much for me. Incredible, Ash. Loved it. This is a romantic, happy book, even at the difficult parts, and it made me smile.
Very recommended. I really enjoyed this one. It was slow getting started, but once it got rolling, I had a hard time putting it down. Ash is the stereotypical carefree party boy. Always looking for a good time, a quick hookup. Fee is a geek. Star Wars obsessed, book club leader, thick black nerd chic glasses. This is not a simple case of opposites attract.

7 Red Flags In Dating You Should NEVER Ignore
And what's up with all the loose ends, especially the side plot regarding Ash's friend Ty? This book felt like it was set up for a series that never materialized.
I did love the opposites attract trope and would love to read a follow-up. If you happen to be the partying type, and a certain geek has caught your eye, there's a guide book that will help you navigate your way into his heart. You'll have to study if you want to catch your geek, and chapters on gaming, coding, and LARPing ought to do the trick.
At least That's what Ash hopes. He's taking this guide to heart, after taking one look at Fee what a stupid name and deciding he has to have him. It doesn't 3. It doesn't matter that Fee doesn't give him the time of day, and has on several occasions made it seem like he's just not that into him. Ash is not one to give up.
But sometimes I wish he had. Because anyone else would. It takes a long time for these two to get together, and sometimes I wondered why they would even bother. One character came off stalkerish, the other disinterested. But, when they do finally get in sync, it's awfully cute.
And steamy. And just plain adorable. This story needed Fee's point of view again, stupid name to really understand why there was so much hesitation. Tap your supply of patience and determination to get through the beginning, because the rest is totally worth it. View all 4 comments.

Geek to the core and inked. Or maybe im the offspring of a drunken night between Sheldon and Penny from the big bang theory. Either one would make perfect sense.

But i digress. I effing loooooved these guys, dude. And the geek guides had me cracking the fuck up. This was a light, sweet read. Just what i was in the mood for. Im totally with another reviewer tho. Kudos to Ash for growing up but changing your look wasnt necessary, which i believe his friends pointed out.
This was just an adorable, slow burn romance. Enjoyed the geek references and loved that Fee the Geek and Ash the tattooed party boy really got to know each other for who they were beyond the stereotypes before jumping into bed.

Shelves: hero-that-stalks-the-one-they-lovem-m-romancecontemporarypart-of-a-seriesdamaged-herosweethero-thy-name-is-cockyeroticgeeky-main-charactertattoos. This story is adorkable! It's cute but not exactly sparkly paper heart cutouts, funny and a story with heart. I loved the authors play on stereotypes - an insecure-ish, tattooed, good looking "party boy" Ash falling for a tall, toned, handsome "geek" Fee aka Felipe. Ash and Fee are more than just a "party boy" and "geek".
They are faceted and I adore them that way. The way the chapters are introduced by chapters from the hilarious Clumsy Cupid Guidebook What was the best thing about this book?
The easy readability! It's the kind of story that sucks you in and you won't even know it. You need to find out about Ash and Fee. You want them to finally rub one out. Towards about three-quarters of the story, I was really feeling it for Ash. There's satisfaction at the end of the tunnel, smutsters.
Another great thing, it was not an instant smut fest. These two worked on their relationship and built it to something meaningful before consummation. And what a HOT one that was!
They worked together. What would have made it a five star read for me? I was dying to know what he felt about Ash, especially in their awkward 'almost dating' period. I get Fee's socially awkward so his closed-off-ness, I get it. So his abruptness was not off putting to me. And it is necessary because if Fee was not socially inept, it wouldn't have been believable, in my theory. And sad face to what happened at Thanksgiving to Fee. I loved the secondary characters, they were a great support system for Ash.
Plus I have a feeling they are going to be featured in upcoming books from this series. Which I will definitely be reading There's not too much I can dissect in the 'hate-it' pile with this one.

I just finished listening to the audio and definitely enjoyed it, but reading it was better.

Jan 27, Dating A Nightlifer: Can A Party Boy Be Tamed? by Whitney Young January 27, Naturally, most women-no matter how self-assured-would be hesitant to . Apr 02, To help you figure out if your relationship is healthy, or needs to be ditched, fast, we've asked the experts the top 21 dating red flags that might suggest your partner - sorry to say it.
To view it, click here. Ok, wow. While I had pretty much resigned myself to giving this 2 stars Luckily, I'm in a good mood, so I stuck with 2 stars. The main reason why it gets such a low rating is because I couldn't connect with Ash.
I could not get an inside to his thoughts, reasons. I didn't understand how any of the boring stuff that happened between him and Fee impacted him and changed his mentality. And some passages were outright ridiculous.
Like the moment when Ash arrives at Fee's birthday party, spend less than 5 minutes talking I seriously believed they exchanged only 2 sentences between them and yet Ash was amazed at how easy it was to talk to Fee and that he was indeed a nice guy. At which point and for the rest of the book I had this one question playing in my head at everything Ash did, questioned or believed: Why should I take for granted everything you say in relation to Fee?
I felt in no way compelled to side with Ash or empathise. I also felt slightly cheated as both MC were different from what I expected.
Fee was geeky and shy and yet had plenty of friends, wasn't afraid to get into a fight if need be and had a hot body. Ash was this charismatic tattoo artist who bottomed for anyone wishing, who had awesome and understanding parents and who turned whinny and needy after one look at Fee. The scene that tipped me towards really disliking the book was the fight scene towards the end. After being together for a couple of months and claiming to know Fee somewhat well, Ash just jumps to his own conclusions, acts like a spoiled brat then mourns his impending break-up.
And all because he couldn't give his boyfriend 5 minutes to explain. Bottom line? A very sugary and sappy story with no attachment from my side for the characters. They contradicted the pre-envisaged picture I had of them and I couldn't grasp the mentality they had.
Good luck to other readers. Hope they make it inside the characters and enjoy the book more than I did. I was so pro-Ash that anytime he was laughed at by his friends for trying to change or for liking someone different that I was a little hot around the collar. Every time someone threw his prior sex life in his face, I was indignant for him.
He tried so hard and people didn't think he was serious and then when he changed a little people kept saying don't change for him. His lack of communication skills made him seem like one of those intellectual I was so pro-Ash that anytime he was laughed at by his friends for trying to change or for liking someone different that I was a little hot around the collar. His lack of communication skills made him seem like one of those intellectual elitist. But get them together out of their environments natural habitats and they are good together.
Their romance was so sweet and cute. My heart broke for Ty. Hopefully we'll get to see more of him in his own book. Oct 25, Nik rated it it was ok Shelves: m-mtattoos-piercingssnoozer. The best thing about this book for me was the end. No not the ending but the actual fact that it was over. This book was SO incredibly painful to read. I normally adore Piper Vaughns books but, I just couldn't connect to either of the main characters.

I could not for the life of me understand what had Ash all hot over Fee. I was so close to a DNF.
