Five Reasons Nerds Are Sexy

So the hero of my latest Brazen, TAKING THE SCORE has a lot going for him. He’s rich, Texan, impossibly handsome. But I could say that about practically every (Texan) hero I meet. What sets Brody Kane apart from the rest of the Lone Star riff raff is his nerd credentials. He was in Math Club. He collects Doctor Who figures. He demonstrates points with Monty Python quotes. Total nerd. Totally sexy.

Still not convinced of the sexiness of nerds? Let me count the ways.

  1. Nerds are passionate about things like Star Wars and Firefly and obscure shows on SyFy that nobody is watching outside of their Doctor Who forum buddies. That kind of passion is downright adorable.
  2. They tend to be more focused about everything, including how to please their ladies. (You can see how this kind of focus can be very beneficial.)
  3. Nerds don’t judge you for your passions. They were constantly judged in high school (and probably college, and probably life) so they know the pain. Your obsessions are cool with them.
  4. They are awesome problem-solvers.
  5. Nerds, especially tall, rich, Texan nerds, look awesome in a suit. Add glasses and you have yourself an ovary explosion.

How about a little snippet from TAKING THE SCORE where we see nerdy Brody through the eyes of Emma, his personal assistant?

Making little or no effort with his appearance, he walked around in an abstracted haze that should not have appealed to her in any way. She usually liked built, tatted, dangerous men, not the lean, rangy type. Oh, there was muscle there, ropy cords of it rippling through his forearms and impressive thighs, but she suspected he hadn’t worked for it, not really. More like bought them at the gym on the first floor.

Not handsome in the classical sense, he radiated something more compelling. On the day the goddess was giving out the hawt, Brody Kane received an extra helping of sensuality instead of pretty boy. His lips were too full, even when sealed together in their customary grim disapproval. Mahogany hair flopped over his right eyebrow in a way that screamed, “I need a cut but I’m too distracted (making money) to care.”

But his most attractive feature was his eyes. Silver gray like moonlight over a calm stretch of water. Eyes that could cut you to pieces and rebuild you with a single look. To add sexy insult to hot injury, he wore glasses.

Yep, total dweeb.

His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…

Paying down her sister’s debts has left personal assistant Emma Strickland with little more than the thrift store suit on her back. And as if the suckfest couldn’t get worse, she’s forced to get a second job as a waitress to support herself and her cat. At a strip club. Her uptight, sexy-as-hell boss Brody Kane can never find out.

Texas property tycoon Brody Kane hired Emma for her spreadsheet skills, but her prim and proper demeanor sealed the deal. There’s no room in his life for a sexy distraction…and yet, he can’t stop lusting after the delicious Ms. Strickland.

But then he takes an important client to a Chicago strip club and gets the worst lap dance in adult entertainment history. From Emma.

Now that he knows his office good girl has a naughty streak, Brody makes it his mission to uncover her secrets, one illicit, over-the-desk encounter at a time. But Emma is hiding more than her side job, and her final secret could end up destroying them both.
