✰✰ BOY MEETS NERD by LEIA SHAW: A Rock Chick Fairy Review ✰✰


After graduating from MIT with a computer science degree, hacker Emerson True bides her time until she lands the perfect job. To pay the bills, she investigates cheating boyfriends and relationship secrets.

Her newest client, musician Levi Morrison, is a typical heartbreaker – gorgeous and charming. He’s also the biggest sucker in the world. When red flags pop up, he hires Em to check into the identity of the girl he’s fallen in love with online.

As Em and Levi work together to find his dream girl, they discover they have more in common than they thought. Though Emerson tries to build a firewall around her heart, Levi bypasses it easily. In the end, Levi must choose between his dream girl and the nerd who unwittingly hacked her way into his heart.

A Rock Chick Fairy Review

This is a very timely story about love and the social media.

Emerson is a hacker. Yes, she's a girl (funny name for a girl eh?) and a hardcore hacker. She's in the middle of finding out what she really wants in life when she suddenly gets a request from this guy Levi, to spy on his online girlfriend. She's the tomboy type of girl, but when Levi butts into her life, she gets the biggest problem ever. Falling for the client who's about to get his heart broken.

Levi is a striving musician. He has dreamed A LOT of the day that he would meet his 4 month-online-girlfriend, Hope Love (gag!). However, she wasn't making it easy for him. All he wants is just a glimpse of the girl he thought he was in love with, but she keeps on prolonging the agony, so he started to have suspicions. He sought the help of a hacker, and that's Emerson. He asks him to find the truth behind Hope Love's identity. Needless to say, what he finds out isn't to his liking...but then again, if it weren't for him coming to Emerson about this, they wouldn't really have met, so it's still a win-win. ^_^

Em and Levi have a pretty good chemistry. They both got the hots for each other. Hope Love is the only one standing in the way and personally, I believe she's not much of a competition to Em. It's pretty predictable actually. Levi finds out that the hard hearted hacker girl he met face to face is better than his beloved girl who lied to him online.

At some point, I questioned the speed of Em and Levi's relationship. I found it to be really fast, but I guess that's fiction to us all.

There's a big moral surrounding this book. These days, people are obsessed with social media. We all can hide who we are behind computers and say whatever we want to say. We can all just pretend to be perfect people with no flaws at all, but what happens if other people take that seriously? These people can waste their time talking to perfectly fake people. In Levi's case, it was four months of his life. Four months may not seem to be a lot to other people, but to some like me, I take that as a big amount of time wasted. This book reminds us that no matter how perfect people present themselves online, no matter how much we think or feel that we already know them because of the frequency of time that we talk to them, reality could still be a lot different, even the opposite so we mustn't really trust so easily or else, we should be ready for a grand fall out.

My only problem-ish in this book is that I want it to be longer. I wanna see what the future holds for the both of them professionally and relationship wise. Hmmm...

Anyway, all in all, this is a pretty good book. I definitely recommend it to all who love romance and to all who love nerds. ^_^
