Reviewed By: Karen
Blurb: Julian “Quinn” Quintero, a gruff, tough Miami SWAT officer, has been injured on the job, and all he’s looking for is a little peace and quiet to recover – difficult to achieve with his large Cuban family. An adventure in picking up his prescriptions puts him in the path of his geeky, brownie-baking neighbor, Spencer Morgan. Spencer sweeps into Quinn’s life like a tropical storm of sunshine and rainbows. Not surprisingly, it’s chaos at first sight. Quinn’s in need of a little tender loving care, and Spencer decides he’s just the man for the job. Their very different lives might clash, but they might also find some common ground – and maybe more.
Review: I reviewed Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts (the e-book) back in August. I loved it and was so excited to get the audio version of the story, and I wasn’t disappointed at all.
I think Michael Stellman did a great job bring Quinn and Spencer’s story to life. To quote from my original review:
The way humor is weaved throughout the story is awesome. When Quinn walks into Spencer’s apartment the first time, the entire encounter had me laughing out loud. Then later, when Quinn’s family showed up, I again couldn’t help but laugh because honestly, Quinn’s family was amazing.
I ended up loving Spencer even more after listening to the audiobook. I was laughing out loud, again, over and over. That geeky little guy worming his way into gruff and crappy Quinn’s life was really so sweet, and it comes through wonderfully throughout the performance. Stellman’s narration was clear and well enunciated, with clear definition between the different characters. And, as when I first read the book, again I wished it were longer and we got more of these two guys’ story.
