Can a djinn and a magic slot machine bring two geeks together?

Riley McGregor is a geek trapped in a Good Ole Boy body and as owner of a microbrewery, smart chicks never look at him twice.

Rejected by a geek who wanted to “trade up,” Mirjam Linna would rather immerse herself in work than be the girlfriend-of-the-moment. Stranded in a Vegas hotel, she makes a wish—a night of

Quick, sexy, fun read. Love the geeky hero and heroine and all the fun pop culture shout-outs. There was A LOT of sex for such a short book--maybe a bit too much for me--but there was also a real sweetness to their connection which I really liked.

Can't go wrong w/ microbeers and Star Wars metaphors. :^)

Grade: B
4.5-5 stars

This was a great short story. I really liked both Riley and Mirjam and loved the way they get together. This is the first story I've read by this author and I liked it (obviously) well enough that I will be trying more of her work.

Mirjam is a software developer that lives in Michigan. Mirjam went to Duke University for Political Science and Russian so I'm not sure how she ended up as a software developer but she's in Las Vegas for a work related convention when this story begins. Sinc

I would have loved Beer and Groping in Las Vegas for the title alone, but Angela Quarles gave me so much more to love it for. Like an laser of romantic geekiness, Mirjam and Riley's story ricocheted off my funny bone and punched a hole through my heart. It sounds painful, but I promise you, it wasn't.

Mirjam's confidence took a hit when her last relationship ended...five years ago. Now she's a workaholic, too busy to bother with another relationship that might wound her heart. Riley is a geek tra

A djinn makes a wonderful connection between Mirjam and Riley. Just one night to let loose and relax between two workaholics. I always knew geeky could be sexy and hot. I just wished there was more groping as per the title. This was a great quick romantic read.

This was a fun quick read involving a quirky romance that was set up by a djinn. Short stories and novellas can make me leery of wanting to give them a try because not everyone who writes one understands just how to achieve a good balance of plot, pacing and character development to fit into the page count they have. Fortunately, this author did a great job so I ended up with an enjoyable reading experience that had me reading with a smile on my face and an 'ah' of satisfaction coming from my li ...more

My Review:
This is a wonderful little book. It reads really quickly so it's great for when you need a quick romance fix. The book is about Riley and Mirjam, two attractive people who are really geeks at different conventions in Las Vegas. Mirjam is a computer programmer. Riley owns a beer brewery. They knew each other in high school and were fascinated, but never got the chance to act on anything before Riley moved away before their junior year. They've never been in contact since and in fact, li

While sitting in the bar of her hotel, her bartender strikes up a conversation with her, which in turn results in Mirjam pulling the arm of a slot machine, resulting in her doing something she normally wouldn’t do.
