Cynthia’s dating service is one-of-a-kind. A combination of old-fashioned matchmaking and high-end computer algorithms, she guarantees her matches. However, she needs an infusion of cash to stay afloat long enough to prove her theories work.
No investment firm in town is nibbling, until she meets Aaron and Gavin. They’re willing to give her a shot, on one condition—she has to prove her algorithm works by matching each of them.
Their cocky attitudes and desire to flirt with anyone and everyone make Gavin and Aaron the kind of candidates Cynthia usually turns away without question. But with her business and dream on the line, she’ll make an exception, reminding herself every step of the way there’s a reason she never plugs herself into the algorithm, and she’s not going to make an exception for the men who hold her company’s future in their hands.
“Your favorite dating accessory.” This was one of her most vague questions, because it was the best way to lead a conversation a lot of people were uncomfortable diving into head first.
“Necktie.” Aaron didn’t hesitate.
“Worn around the neck?” Cynthia prodded, hoping he’d open up more. For clinical purposes, of course. Not because the single word danced over her like flames licking her senses.
“If it’s worn somewhere else, it ceases to be a dating accessory.” Aaron twisted his mouth. “Worn around the wrists. Not mine.”
“Or over the eyes,” Gavin added.
The responses summoned accompanying fantasies in Cynthia’s mind, and she bit the inside of her cheek to keep fantasy from rushing in. “I guess it’s a good thing there are two of you, then.” Don’t flirt with the clients.
“Not the first time we’ve heard that.” Gavin’s expression shifted from serious toward playful, but the intensity in his dark eyes didn’t vanish.
This was a dangerous way to let this conversation meander. Cynthia didn’t have the desire to reel them back in, though. “Why a necktie? Is it the texture?” The question had nothing to do with her form, and everything to do with the images teasing her.
“Convenience,” Aaron said.
Gavin nodded. “It’s all about spontaneity.”
“I don’t know what kind of men you date”—Aaron held her gaze—“but I don’t typically wear a rope as an accessory.”
“Though I suppose I could find an excuse in a pinch.” Gavin added.
Aaron scrunched his face up in mock-thought. “Pinching has its place too.”
“If we’re just throwing logic to the wind, ass-slapping is one of my favorite accessories.” Gavin grinned.
She should argue that wasn’t wearable, but thought of handprints on bare skin danced in her mind, and she didn’t know if she could pretend to be professional if she let one of them describe that in detail. “Sensation play, then?” She struggled to turn the conversation back to the form.
Gavin furrowed his brows. “Play sounds so formal. You wouldn’t think a word like that could be anything except fun, but you tack play on the end of something sexual, and suddenly it carries an expectation.”
“Which is bad because… spontaneity?” Cynthia warred between falling into vivid conversation and doing her job.
“It’s not always bad,” Aaron said. “It has its place.”
Gavin looked around her office. “This place, for instance, has a lot of potential for play.”
“I think we’re getting off track.” Who was she kidding? She didn’t want to get back on track.
Allyson Lindt's "The Nerds and the Matchmaker" is the second tale in The Nerd Love Equation series, but you can read it first or as a standalone, I did. I liked the matching algorithm and nerdy data stuff! Who else but Allyson Lindt is writing about sexy nerds? Gavin and Aaron are flawed and sexy. Such amazing relationships and *relations* (wink-wink-nudge-nudge) in this book. Super hot sexy scenes. Great character development. I can't wait to read #1. You can also get a taste of #3/#4 that are coming through her newsletter with "The Nerd and the Traveler."

The Nerds and The CEO
A Stand Alone #GeekLove MMF Menage Romance
As long as Antonio has Justin and the Silicon Valley start-up they built together, Antonio’s content to hide his true feelings. He’d rather keep Justin’s friendship than confess his love and lose everything.
But Justin’s gotten careless with their business.
The board of directors sends them Emily, a contract developer, to ensure their rules are being followed. Justin doesn’t expect her to be the one-night stand he played out the scorching fantasy with, of sharing her with Antonio.
As long hours and tight deadlines push the three closer together, they heat up keyboards and the sheets. If their private hookups become public knowledge, she’ll lose her job, they’ll lose their company, and the three will be torn apart before they discover if all of them can find happily-ever-after together.
My Review for #1:
Allyson Lindt's "The Nerds and the CEO" is the first tale in The Nerd Love Equation series. The characters are very well-written, as usual with Allyson Lindt. Emily is an amazing leading lady and holy smokes Justin and Antonio are hawt! This story feels like a fugue with escalating themes...such a great set of developments in this storyline. The sexy scenes are scorching hot! I just love these nerdy love stories! I can't wait to read the whole series!
