Finally the Geek Gets the Guy!!!

If any of you have ever felt like an outsider, or a geek, THIS book is for you! 

I have long felt that one of the reasons women read or write m/m fiction is because they have a connection to the outsider, the person on the fringe of society, those less than acceptable to the "beautiful people." Perhaps because we were teased in school, unpopular, or just terrified of lunch hour. Maybe some or all of the above. 

For me, I have always related to people who are not society's ideal because I have never felt that I was the ideal. That is why I had such a wonderful time writing Jason Lewis, the hero from my latest 1Night Stand THE BEST EVER. I can relate to his self doubt, his awkwardness. Where I personally rely on talking to hide my awkwardness, Jason just reverts into himself.
In THE BEST EVER, Jason--the nerd--gets the guy and the Happily Ever After. 

I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did!

BLURB: Jason Lewis is a self-proclaimed nerdy guy who hates his red hair. Bullied most of his life, at 22 social situations still make him awkward. On a trip to the World Video Game Expo in Las Vegas, Jason decides to enlist the help of Madame Eve in his failed romantic endeavors. While at the con, he runs into sexy, professional baseball pitcher Blake Huntington, the guy he tutored in high school. Blake invites him to a party and after hanging out with his high school crush, Jason begins to regret booking his 1NS "encounter" later that night. But Madame Eve may have planned the best night ever

From the corner of his eye, he noted the sheets on the king-sized bed had been turned down and a strip of condoms lay on the nightstand next to a bottle of lube.

Suddenly, the illicit nature of the whole evening hit him. Sweat broke out on his skin. Shit, why had he bothered to shower? He took a quick whiff of his pits. Thank God, his deodorant was still on the job.

Where was this guy? What if he turned out to be old? Who hired this kinda service anyway? And who used an alias as lame as John Smith?

Suck it up! You can do this. He may have been a gangly nerd in high school but he’d taken up karate, per Blake’s suggestion—dammit! Stop thinking about professional baseball players you’ll never stand a chance with. This is about going after what you want!

The bathroom door opened, and he smoothed his shirtfront, trying to be presentable.

A man walked out, towel-drying his hair.

Jason sucked in a sharp breath, and his dick stood up and took notice of the big, athletic body, fresh from the shower. Tanned and muscular. Water streaked furrows into his perfect layer of chest hair. A skimpy towel hung from narrow hips, a solid thigh peeking out from the side, but his face remained hidden.

“Sorry, I kept you waiting,” the man said, slow and seductive. “I figured, why waste time getting dressed.”

Then he dropped both towels in a practiced maneuver, standing there in all his naked glory. Jason’s gaze traveled from his feet, up those long legs, past a thick cock and over a perfectly chiseled abdomen.

When their eyes met, the man’s sly grin faded in an instant. He gasped, hazel eyes wide.

Jason let out a gasp of his own. “Blake!”

Deanna Wadsworth might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and can often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.

Review of The Best Ever by Deanna Wadsworth

4.5 out of 5 ★'s

Jason has always been a geek, a red-headed geek at that. High school was just a bad memory that he's tried to forget. To temporarily escape a life that still isn't going his way, Jason attends a gaming convention to meet up with his online WoW friends, hoping to catch a glimpse of the star of the newest pitching game while he's there. And since what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, he books an encounter through 1 Night Stand. He's tired of being unable to get a date and while this isn't love, it looks like a sure thing.

Blake is now a professional ball player, but once his dream of making the cut rested on improving his math grades with the help of his tutor Jason. When Jason walks up for an autograph, Blake is ecstatic and invites him to the spondsored party after the signing.

Jason shows up, but rapidly feels out of place surrounded by jocks. All the insecurities of his youth he had thought he'd left behind come roaring back and he heads for the door. But Blake catches him and they spend a couple hours enjoying each other's company. All too soon the hour of eleven approaches and they have to leave. Both men contemplate cancelling their encounter to continue reconnecting with a friend, but decide to meet up the next day instead.

Madame Eve's assistant Deanna Wadsworth brings together her third couple in this loosely linked series. As with the previous offerings, her characters are not just the standard geek/jock pairing. The characters have quirks that make them uniquely hers.

Even though this is a 1 Night Stand story, it is not about a one off. The sex is sweet and endearing. The men share a depth of caring not often seen in short works without resorting to instalove. Jason and Blake can now explore the feelings they had for one another, but were too young and inexperienced to deal with before.

I always enjoy Ms Wadsworth's sexy, quirky tales of finding love where you least expect it.
