#BookReview: Goddess & The Geek (a Hapless Heros) by Louise Cusack

On the jacket:

Computer whizz Julian Wilde has a month booked at an island hideaway to finish his PhD, but when he arrives, sexy oyster farmer Natasha Barri grabs him thinking he’s a burglar and suddenly asthma isn’t the only thing making Julian breathless. The house has been double booked so they’re forced to share and Julian readily agrees to cook, hoping to use the voodoo potions he’s discovered online to make Tasha fall in love with him. Disaster follows debacle as Julian tries to impress her, and she tries not to kill him. 

Read Goddess & the Geek to see if Julian can crack open Tasha’s hermit-shell heart and prove he’s the geek for her...


This is the second book by Cusack which I read and the expectations formed with the first story, was well lived up to in Goddess & The Geek as well. The synopsis had me bubbling with curiosity, the thrilled kind of curiosity, about how the plot will turn out to be. And Cusack's Goddess & The Geek was idle for one rainy afternoon a few days back.

A perfect combination of fun, thrill and sexy; the story is about a geek and a hot girl, two people who would normally never fall in love, but meet in an island and do end up falling in love with each other. Cusack's style of writing is smooth, unpretentious and very likable. 

Stunner Natasha and geek Julian meet at an island. With no where to go and each being the opposite of the other in every way, how do they end up falling in love with each other? Crack up, feel the mush and smile while you read this book!

Rating: ****/5
