Ok this was going to be a 1/2 5 star read, now you sense there's going to be a 'but' and yes there is and quite justifiably so from my point of view, however we'll get here later!

Another good book for Pillow. As a fan of her Dragon Lords and Lords of the Var Series, I think this series is going to be great.

Kat Matthews is on vacation with her mother. She has a meeting with an elder couple who has hired her to "date" her son in exchange for her big dream as a photographer. Their son is a "bug" scientist and never gets out in the real world.

I was expecting a lot from this because of the blurb and the cute cover, and unfortunately I was disappointed. There were funny and cute parts. The plot was actually good. So why was I disappointed?

**2.5 stars**

Bit by the Bug tried to both funny and smutty and sort of failed at both. I think the book should have gone in one direction or another because it seems to me that the author could pull either. There were some really funny parts (specially the beginning with the hero's crazy parents) and some hot parts, but neither involved the hero. And probably that was the big mistake here, that the essence of the story wasn't about the hero at all so how could this be a romance?
