Description: Chuck Davidson's a homicide detective in Boston, and it's put a damper on his relationships. It's hard to find a guy who will put up with his crazy hours. Plus, Chuck has an aversion to modern technology. He likes sports, beer, and classic cars instead. How is he to know that planning the impending death of his newest phone will bring him in contact with a cute geek who just might have a thing for rugged, "slightly out of touch with the newest gadgets" older men?
Herbert Pommerest has never been on a date or even kissed a man before. Oh, he knows he's gay. He did all the experiments to ensure it was true, didn't just go through a rebellious phase or a knee-jerk reaction because women scared him to death. For Herb, it's easy to hide himself behind his research and daydream about what having a boyfriend would be like. But saving an expensive phone from an early demise brings him in contact with a street-wise mature detective. Suddenly Herb wishes he knew how to flirt because he'd love to take some lessons of the sensual kind from the sexy Chuck Davidson.
Can a geek and a detective find common ground between their vastly different worlds before one of Chuck's cases threatens to put Herb in danger from a ruthless killer?

"5 NYMPHS!...A superb comedy, intermingled with suspense. The setting is New York City. The intimate scenes are incredible. The characters are believable. T. A. Chase has created a hilarious saga with exceptionally loveable characters, an exciting mystery plot that I found fascinating, in addition to being thoroughly enjoyable."--Chocolate Minx, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"5 HEARTS!...This is a great story with wonderful characters. T. A. Chase does a fabulous job of drawing readers into the story and making them care for both Chuck and Herb and wanting to see the two men together. The secondary characters are all well written and do their part in keeping the story moving. The story is nicely paced and will keep readers turning the pages until they get to the end."-- Karin, The Romance Studio
"5 ANGELS!...A RECOMMENDED READ!...A fast-paced and riveting story that held me spellbound from the beginning. I fell in love with Herb's bumbling, chattering and inquisitive personality. I hope that this isn't the final story in the Why I Love Geeks world."--Teresa, Fallen Angel Reviews
"I've never had a Twinkie," Herb admitted.
Chuck froze, one hot dog a few inches from his mouth, and stared at Herb. "You haven't eaten a Twinkie. Were your parents granola lovers or something?"
"What does that have to do with Twinkies? No, I never ate dinner with them. I usually ate with the cook, and Marie always made sure I had healthy food."
"You never shared one of your friend's lunches and snacked on Oreos or something like that?"
Herb ducked his head and red tinted his cheeks. "I went to a boarding school. I didn't have any friends."
"Hmmm..." Chuck finished both hot dogs and wiped his hands on a napkin. "I suggest you should stop by a grocery store and pick up some sugar snacks. Oreos, Twinkies, Hostess cupcakes. Anything guaranteed to give you the jitters."
"Why would I want to do that?"
"To experience something different." His phone rang. "Shit."
He flipped open the phone and punched the button. "Yeah."
"Davidson, get back here. We caught a body," his partner, Petrovic, growled in his ear.
"Okay. I'm just a few blocks away, grabbing lunch. I'll be right there."
Chuck managed to turn off the phone and stuffed it in his pocket. He'd dump it in the garbage on the way home.
"It was nice to meet you, Herb. I'll tell you a secret. I think you're cute, too." He leaned over and brushed a kiss over Herb's lips. "Go and get some Oreos and milk, kid. Believe me, you haven't tasted any thing better in your life."
He walked away, but something whispered to look back. When he did, Herb was still standing there, fingers pressed to his mouth and a rather stunned expression on his face.
Chuck winked and turned back with a little swagger in his step. Yep, for an old guy, he still had it.
