nerdgasm (noun): an emotional climax at the peak of intense (sometimes sexual) excitement, characterized by a deep attraction to nerdy things and/or people.

My stutter makes it easy to become the center of attention for all the wrong reasons, so I try hard to stay out of the spotlight.
But when Addison Mitchell breezes into the class I TA for, she turns my world upside down,

Nerdgasm is my very first book by Kimberly Reese. I have to admit that it’s this awesome book cover that first drew me to this book. I might not be able to resist a hot nerdy man.

The first section of this book both stole and broke my heart when we first meet Theo Cadwell as a little boy. Theo is being raised by his widowed mom and Theo has a stuttering problem. As a result, he has a tough time dealing with bullies throughout school. Then we flash forward to twenty-three year old Theo who is now

Graduate student and TA, Theo Cadwell, 23, has dealt with a stuttering problem since childhood. But undergrad Addison Mitchell finds it “adorkable.”

Cutting straight to the chase, the most refreshing thing about this novella is the reverse sexual experience imbalance that doesn’t happen nearly enough in the romance world. The manwhore and the virgin is so overdone a fork should have been stuck in it a long time ago. So squeal a little over this scenario where the hero is the virgin and

Loved it!! This book was so good! I loved Theo and Addy. Theo is the type of guy I could fall in love with in real life. He’s sweet, sexy, shy, so caring and he likes Marvel and DC (be still my heart!) Addy is great too! She’s perfect for Theo since she’s outgoing, confident but sweet too.

I really liked this author’s writing style and can’t wait for Demi and Cohen’s story next!

This was a big winner for me!

I absolutely LOVED this novella! Nerds, when done right are my JAM!!!

Theo was bullied throughout life due to his stutter. Students at school were cruel but he learned how to deal with his tormentors in his own way. My heart hurt so much for him! There is nothing worse than feeling isolated and singled out and children can sometimes be the cruelest.


As an adult he has gained a certain amount of confidence largely due to his ability to control a good portion of his stutter. But when he’s confronte

4 Stars!!
Nerdgasm was such a short fun read! I recommend it to anyone who is looking to read a fun college romance story! I cannot wait to read about Demi and Cohens romance in the next book! I was hoping to read more about this mysterious Cohen!
Something rubbed me the wrong way with this book. The character are just so bland. I think it's mostly the portrayal of what Theo is supposed to be: a nerd with a stutter. He is the quintessential stereotypical Gary Stu. Aside from being really hot and not knowing it, he is nerdy, stutters, wears glasses, reads comic books, loves cons, and has exactly one friend. He is nice, sweet, cares for his girlfriend, and mostly: he is so goddamn boring.

Addy was exactly what you would expect from a popular

I seriously fucking probably died.


Jesus I loved that book. THE ONLY thing that would have made it better would have been a HEA vs a HFN but I have a feeling we'll get wedding bells in book two which will be Demi and Professor Hottie.

Anyway. If you need a break from alpha males and want to swoon for a good guy: THIS! THHHIIISSSS!

DNF - 57%

This book wasn’t AWFUL. It was sort of cute in an overly cliche and stereotypical way. Nerdy and shy hero, and a popular heroine who just found every nerdy bit of him irresistible. It was cute and basic, but then at 55% the virgin hero is stressed about figuring out how to go down on his experienced girlfriend so the professor he TA’s for gives him advice. Hold please. He gives him advice in the most cringeworthy conversation ever on the planet. It was like Ward Cleaver trying to teach

I can't believe this is my first read from this author!!

Nerdgasm is one of the sweetest, funniest & most endearing books I have read in a long time. It's got an adorable nerdy hero Theo who is EVERYTHING you want in a book boyfriend. Addy is his perfect balance and their slowburn romance is not your average NA read but it's absolutely PERFECT!!

While being sweet, funny and seriously hot it also touches on some subjects that are close to my heart and the author handles them beautifully. Gah! I a

I loved this! Refreshingly different! The heroine had sexual experience and the hero did not! I loved Theo and Addy. They were so sweet together! A very enjoyable read!

Adorkable. That's the review. <3
(I'm dying to read about Cohen and Demi now!)
proper review to come at some point of time.

But note to all best friend’s. STAY. AWAY. FROM. YOUR FRIEND’S RELATIONSHIP.

And STOP trying to micromanage it because you know your best friend “so well”.

It is NOT your relationship, neither it is your pet project, and FFS, if you’re telling your best friend’s girlfriend that your friend is “normal” and “strong” and knows how to take care of himself, PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH, have the faith that your friend is a “normal”, “strong” and ADULT guy who can

A light, sexy read that was a ton of fun. Super cute, nerdy hero? Yes, please! And the oranges conversation? HOLY HOTNESS. Trust me, you’ll never look at oranges the same way again. This book is a great choice when you want a fun storyline and a feel good ending.

This is my first by this author. I had never heard of her before. I stumbled upon her giveaway on Instagram and decided to try my luck. I won this ARC and THANK GOODNESS I WON!
I have seen the light and never want to come back. This book gives me a nergasm and I am unashamed to admit it.

"He's like the boy next door who got hot but doesn't know it."

This little novella was my first book by Kimberly and it is such fun, yummy and refreshing to read! Nerdgasm is full of sweetness, sexiness, nerdiness and love.

"A nerdgasm! It's like having an orgasm from his nerdiness, which is fitting since it sounds like he's a nerdy wet dream."

Even though it took me some time to get and feel the connection between Theo and Addy, I got there eventually. But the way the characters and the story were

Bring on the nerds!!

Theo and Addy are such a cute couple. So different, but ultimately such a perfect match for each other.

I liked how Addy helped Theo grow as a person and that she accepted him for who he was as a person and loved him completely.

Theo was able to open up to Addy because of her giving nature and I like his friendship with Demi.

Theo and Addy's date at a local ComicCon was inspired and so unique. I couldn't get enough of this couple. I can't wait to see more of them in the next

Nerdgasm by Kimberly Reese is a sweet, steamy and hilariously funny novella that readers will instantly fall head over heels in love with! This story captivated me in seconds and I found myself devouring it in one sitting because it was nearly impossible to put down. I seriously loved every single moment of it and my goodness this book was hot with a capital H-O-T!

Nerdgasm by Kimberly Reese is the story of Addison and Theo.
Theo dad left him at an early age and he also started to stutter around that time too. His mother was very caring and loving but of course school kids were not so nice. Theo did have a best who was always there for him. When he was around 15 he started to work on getting his stuttering under-control better. Now he only stutters when he is nervous and has worked his way up to be more confident. With that said he hasn't found a

The title was the hook.

Straight up. No lie.

I mean, upon seeing it how could one NOT be just a little curious and want to take a closer look and lemme tell you, I’m happy I did. Nerdgasm was all kinds of sweet, swoony, adorkable and smexy and I loved every word of it!

Theo is seriously adorkably smexy and has no clue which just ramps up his appeal. He’s intelligent, a little goofy and his this quiet confidence that exudes from him. He has his insecurities and

4.5 Stars!

This was one of those feel-good books that you read on a lazy day. Theo is the sexiest nerd I've ever came across in my readings. He has a swimmer's body and the cutest stutter ever! Addy balanced him out so well with her outgoing and sweet personality. I loved their chemistry from start to finish. I also loved that there was no question as to how either one felt about the other. There are some plots that need a bit of back and forth to balance out personalities or themes the autho

Ever since I read about this authors books I’ve wanted to read them and I finally managed to get around to Nerdgasm and boy, I’m super fucking glad I did.

Theo and Addy are freaking brilliant characters and I’m loving them so hard right now.

Theo didn’t have it easy growing up, being bullied because of a stutter had him shying away and keeping himself to himself with his best friend being the only exception. He’s smart, nerdy and handsome with a gorgeous bod hidden underneath his clothes *swoons

What a FUN read!!! Nerdgasm checked all the boxes for me. Sweet? Yep. Swoony? Oh yeah. Sexy as hell? Absolutely! Please hold while I fan myself. LOL!
Theo made this book for me. I fell in love with him before the end of Chapter 1, and he just got better and better. An adorkable, sexy-as-hell, virgin? Um, yes please!
Nerdgasm was a fun and sexy summer read, and Kimberly Reese is definitely an author to watch. :)

Nerdgasm was a really good story,cute,sweet,lighthearted and easy to read.

The main characters can't be more different,while our heroine is an outgoing and dynamic girl, our hero is nerdy and shy.She is a student and he is her teacher TA but that won't stop them.
I liked the instantaneous chemistry between Theo and Addy but I have appreciated even more how their relationship develops step-by-step in a more realistic way.

This was the first time I've read this author but I can't wait for more books

Theo is the man he is today because he never let his stuttering get in the way of making his dreams come true. He ignored the kids who bullied him throughout school, and he never told his mother about it because he didn’t want her to worry or be sad. He studied hard and received a full scholarship to undergraduate and graduate school where he is studying for a Masters Degree in Mythological Studies, and he is also a Teaching Assistant for the Intro to Greek Mythology class.

Admittedly, I am not a New Adult genre reader, however, in Nerdgasm's defense, this book is not a typical new adult novella. The only new adult pieces I could identify is that Theo and Addy are college students and in their early 20s. But, on to my review of this brilliant little gem. I just cannot tell you how much I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's beautifully written and flows wonderfully, but more than that I LOVED out H and h in this story.

First, I have to mention this cover. Isn’t it GORGEOUS!?!? I really need this one on my bookshelf ASAP!!

I usually avoid novellas because of their length. I feel like the majority of them leave me unsatisfied and the story feels rushed. Nerdgasm was none of these things. Yes it’s a novella but it's on the longer side and Kimberly Reese did an AMAZING job with it. Yes, I wanted more at the end, but only because Theo and Addy are so adorable and I’m just greedy. My nerdy self was absolutely giddy a
