The Geek Job is not your typical erotic paranormal romance. Nope, Eve shows her talent yet again for writing something different and hot. I have to admit at first I wasn’t warming up to this story, but as I keep reading I found Eve added her twist to the story and made this geek into a hot demanding alpha. Oh my, *fan self*. Now, I need to find a geek for myself LOL.. You have to read “The Geek Job” for yourself to find out what this geek turned himself into in order to keep his lady wolf.
Ooooooooooh! This was such a great story!.

Not at all typical. Totally hot. A litle off the wall. Completely addictive.

I was looking for a great Langlais and I found it in this story. The blurb and/or the sneak peak chapter do not do this story justice.

The plot was quite busy with a lot of things going on. The hero was hot, the heroine was strong and interesting, and there was great character development. What more can we ask for?

I just ... don't really have words for how much I enjoyed this stor
I loved this story. It is going on my faves list and now I'm kicking myself for not reading it ages ago (it's been on my "To Read" list forever). It was just a great read and I really loved Anthony and Lexie. I liked how the story gave them time to grow and learn about each other. The story took place over a couple weeks, which isn't a long period of time but I felt it gave more time for their feeling to mesh and grow.

Lexie is an Alpha female shifter. Most of the male shifters want her as a mat

Recommends it for: Over 18; strong sexual content
The Geek Job by Eve Langlais does a great job of bringing a-not-so alpha guy together with an implacable, sexy heroine who can hold her own against the toughest of situations. I really like the juxtaposition of the male/female roles in this book. Eve Langlais has written a jewel of a story with interesting characters and an original narrative.

My Review:
This was simply a fun afternoon's read. I took the afternoon off for Mother's day and took my Kindle to the coffee shop. This book was perfect for my afternoon. It only took a couple of hours to read. It wasn't too heavy or too deep- just pure entertainment. But there definitely was enough story and character development, that it didn't seem all!

Anthony is a scientist on the verge of discovering the cure to a vampire's aversion to sunlight. As such, he is in a very dangero
How embarrassing. I know, I KNOW!! But this was SO MUCH FUN!!
I love Eve Langlais' stories. They're funny, her heroines are sassy and idependent and her alpha males are usually to die for, like this guy...

Oh wait, did I say alpha? No, Anthony is anything but. He's a scientist with a no-nonsense approach to life. Science, not superstition is his driving force. And his mission in life is to cure the unfortunate "sun allergy" his wealthy boss is suffering from...

Of course, this isn't something the other supernatural creatures he does not believe in, are ready
Wendy *Sebella Blue* Mitchell
Lexie was too much of an Alpha to even try pretending she was just another pack female. After tearing into one too many of the pack males, she was banished and now makes her living on her own terms. Right now her terms are playing body guard and pretend girlfriend to a geeky scientist working on the vamp problem, sunlight = steaming pile of goo. Anthony was tongue tied when the most gorgeous woman he’s ever seen speaks to him. He can’t believe his good fortune when she actually seems interested ...more
Honestly this book was much better then I expected. It was humorous, sexy & exciting. I do love a smart sexy man...throw in the paranormal element and how can you go wrong!? Geek turned Alpha...Loved it!!
Fun, quick read, sizzling hot :) A full review can be read here :

A tantalizing read that will leave you wanting a nerd of your own.
Belinda Boring
I'd have to say this is one of my favorite stories by Eve, I was completely hooked by the smexiness of it! I'm so used to reading books where the hero is this dashing, warrior, uber Alpha guy and the heroine takes a journey into growing stronger. It was the complete opposite with The Geek Job.

Lexie is the kick butt and feisty character who knows what she wants and has absolutely no problem in taking it. She's a bodyguard and good at her job which lands her with a job protecting a scientist rese

This novella is erotica that I think might have worked even better as a full length novel, because the author has a nice grip on her characters and on the influence of paranormal beings on our world. In a matter of fact way that I could easily believe would work just like that.

Because it is erotica in intent, we do get a whole lot of sex right away and throughout, but the strong personality of Lexie, the heroine, and the nice foil that her geek is for her personality make for an emotional connec
The Geek Job was my first book by Eve Langlais but it is definitely going to be the first of many.

Even though this is quite a short novel, Eve Langlais manages to give us wonderful, quirky and sexy characters and a funny and hot story that could rival any full-length book. At first, I thought I could not possibly like the female lead because of her "work ethics" but it actually turned out to be really funny and when Lexi meets Anthony she falls hard and quickly.

Amber I. (AwesomeSauce Book Club)
So we are all used to hot strong drool worthy men taking spot in our paranormal romances, well be prepared to swoon over one very geeky man!!

When you find out that our main man is suppose to be a nerdy scientific guy you may think to just skip this. I mean we all like our men to be that alpha male and someone we can all fall head over heals for. But please do not let this dissuade you from this book. Because you will miss one hot book!!

This book really blew my expectations. The characters had a
Highly recommended - this book was brilliant. It was humorous, romantic, adventurous, cheeky, different and just plain fun :))

The turnaround of the stereotypical characters was great with our heroine being kickass with an understandable chip on her shoulder as Lexie has always had to fight her way out of being pushed into the submissive wolf mould [kicking and screaming]. Our hero a brilliant scientist who is shy/diffident when not in his science element. The more time Anthony spends with Lexie
With a smart, tough ans sexy heroine and a hot geek as a hero and steamy sex,this was a fun book but I'm not suprised all Eve Langlais book are good.
It was more 3 1/2 stars.
Lexie is an ubber alpha werewolf who she thumbs her nose at submissive expectations and becomes a bad ass bodyguard. Her newest job is to protect human, Anthony, who unknowingly is working for a vampire and that pesky allergy to sunshine.

Eve Langlais is quickly becoming one of my top tier authors. Her stories are definitely entertaining and worth reading. The one thing that really surprised me in this story is that it felt like a longer read. There was plenty of plot and character development wh
Enjoyable read to pass the time. But has some things that I found a little jarring:

1. Hero's change in the second half of the book
2. How the other conference attendees are presented as male nerds (with apparently a lack of interaction with females) --at a sci-fi/gaming/etc. convention I understand, but at an academic science conference, no.

Some things I found mildly refreshing:

1. A TSTL moment by the hero (which he immediately realized once doing it)
2. Heroine having very few qualms about sex an
Live this feisty werewolf bodyguard and her sexy geeky target.
Lexie is a bodyguard for hire and takes a job protecting a geek who unknowingly works for a vampire. Antony is a guest speaker at a scientific conference and while there meets a gorgeous woman he spends weekend with.
Lexie struggles through weekend to keep professional while her wolf slowly fall in love.
Love this short funny and very sweet but also sexy book.

I'm generally really fond of Eve Langlais. She has a sense of humor that is refreshing, and her heroines can border on the edge of aggressive that isn't always attractive, but works, because a heroine like that needs a bigger than life Hero (or in some cases, more than one).

The Geek Job is a fun read on more than one level. You have your typical Langlais heroine, an urban Alpha bitch who has a history of putting the eye of a suitor out for trying to mark her. She works as a sort of mercenary, d
This was a super cute, sexy, funny read!

Having read this in one afternoon, I felt like it went by way to fast . . but still enjoyed the book very much!

Lexie has a job to do, one she has named "The Geek Job". 72 hrs, keep the geek safe . . put him in the limo to return and job done! Simple, right? Ha!

I don't wanna give anything away . . so that's all you're getting out of me. Just know that I enjoyed the read very much and would recommend! Great book for the beach or laying in the hammock!
I hadn't ready anything by Eve Langlais for a while, and figured I'd give this paranormal a try, since it's a BOTM selection.

Lexie, a werewolf, agrees to take on the job of bodyguard for Anthony, a scientist who disavows the possibility of 'other.' Unbeknownst to Anthony, his employer's a vampire who wants him to find a cure for his 'allergy' to the sun. Lexie and Anthony discover a mutual attraction, and hey..Lexie needs an excuse to stay with Anthony, so they hit the sheets at a conference, an
Miranda Stowe
I love how the hero got to show a shy, geek side as well as an alpha side; it was almost like falling for two men! I should probably be upset Lexi first slept with Anthony for money, but it fit her character perfectly and you could tell she would've had him anyway. She rocked!

But now I wanna read Frederick's story. Really bad. Anyone know if Frederick will have a story?
Book Red
What a fun read. I usually am a dark and disturbing kind of girl, so when I find a light, humorous, book with action I enjoy it all the more. I loved Lexie's bad-assed werewolf girl and the geeky brilliance of Anthony. I f you want a fun, paranormal love story with some rough and tumble sex this is the book for you.
Jennie Pratt
So I mean, when you read this genre, you kind of know what to expect. Is it too much for me to want to be able to enjoy this genre without the corny, eye-rolling feeling? The dialogue is sometimes just painful. The story itself is interesting enough, but again, I only seem to be getting one thing from reading these types of books.

Granted, I did like it. I didn't love it and I didn't think it was awesome. It had this whole Underworld vibe which was kind of cool. I tend to be incredibly stubborn
Meaghan Cooper
Lexie has a special talent for bodyguard duty, being a werewolf helps. However, she is surprised to find herself attracted to her latest job, a geeky scientist who is also a human. Anthony doesn't know what to make of the woman who has looks, brains, and strength. He's surprised that she's interested in him and at what the woman brings out in him. However, he is shocked to find out that not only was she paid to play his girlfriend in order to protect him, but that she is a werewolf. Will the wer ...more
What's a female werewolf bodyguard gonna do to keep a nerdy scientist safe for his vampire boss?

The answer is everything!

Loved this short story and how the main characters grew together right before our eyes.

Eve Langlais does it again :)
This was a fun fast read. Having the hero being a geek was a nice change. In addition to the great romance, there was also a lot of action to keep the story moving at a fast pace.
