    1. Ash is a tatted up pretty boy who likes to party and hopes to one day open up his own tattoo shop. Fee is a geeky IT guy and Star Wars fanatic. No way should these two be attracted to each other but, the heart wants what the heart wants and Ash's heart wants Fee. As much as Fee tries to fight it he wants Ash too. I wish I was better at writing reviews because this book was all kinds of awesome and I know I won't be able to express how much I loved it. And I did love it. It's just the right amoun [...]

    2. ~SEXY NERD!!!~OMG my ass is just all kinds of love in love with this story just all kinds of love. It was sexy, funny, and just cotton candy sweet without the toothache. I was expecting to like this one but I was not expecting to love it, this one is a 5+ Pants Off.Ash is the pretty party boy and he makes no apologies about it. He can get anyone he wants and knows he's above average when it comes to looks and all that. As a tattoo artist, he has dreams of opening a tattoo parlour with his best b [...]

    3. 3.65*I love the idea of this story, opposites attract, geek vs party boyFor some reason I had a bit of trouble really getting into it, the first third was difficult for me , I kept wondering why on earth Ash kept trying to get to Fee?I understood the challenge of it and that he was attracted and felt that it was reciprocated, buti guess lucky for them Ash is tenacious, I didn't like the hot/cold or actually more cool/colder thing Fee had going on. And imo Ash really came close to crossing into s [...]

    4. I have the same reaction with Mandy. All through the book, I can only think of this: "Ash, maybe Fee is just not into you". The thing is, the story is one sided, we only get Ash's perspective. So while Ash grows up (so to speak) in the story, from the party boy (though I don't get the evidence a lot from here, only from what people 'said' about Ash, or what Ash thinks of himself) to this one who care about Fee, but the stand-offish attitude from Fee left me cold. Even when Ash and Fee get togeth [...]

    5. Oh, Ash Byrne. The man who’s first name is the product of his last name. Tattoo apprentice, party boy extraordinaire, flighty, shallow, slutty, satisfied with coasting and looking for just a good time. Or is he? Ash is so much more than he seems at first glance, and watching him mature throughout this story was enchanting. It’s a little bit sad as he begins the change from immature to grown up and hears confirmation from others (shocked surprise that he’s not going out clubbing, more shock [...]

    6. I loved this for all of the Geek Dating chapter excerpts that were included. Those had me laughing they were so clever and on point. Well done. I liked these guys, Ash especially, it took me a bit to warm up to Fee though. He was too much of a mystery and it hurt his character for me. I felt a bit like Carey in thinking that he treated Ash badly I would have loved a POV from him or even battling chapters from their respective guide books. That would have been fantabulous. This is a simple story [...]

    7. This is a fun, light story about a party boy, Ash, who falls for a really good-looking, nerdy guy (Fee) who appears to want nothing to do with him. Ash isn't about to give up, though, and he goes so far as to buy a manual - a guide to translating geek-speak and behavior, and figuring out how to approach the man of his dreams.If you can overlook the improbability that Fee can be that hot and perfect physically, when he spends all his time in sedentary pursuits, and believe that he can attract Ash [...]

    8. 4.5 stars! I really enjoyed this one. It was slow getting started, but once it got rolling, I had a hard time putting it down. Ash is the stereotypical carefree party boy. Always looking for a good time, a quick hookup. Fee is a geek. Star Wars obsessed, book club leader, thick black nerd chic glasses. This is not a simple case of opposites attract. Ash pursues Fee relentlessly, bordering on stalkerish, but Fee keeps turning him down. Ash has a bit of a reputation and Fee is more of a “relatio [...]

    9. 3.5 starsCute, low on angst, and very easy reading, but something was missing. I never felt that Fee was as invested in the relationship as Ash, maybe because we get only Ash's POV. I wanted more steam, fewer misunderstandings. And what's up with all the loose ends, especially the side plot regarding Ash's friend Ty? This book felt like it was set up for a series that never materialized.I did love the opposites attract trope and would love to read a follow-up.

    10. 3.5 starsSlowwwwww BurnnnnnnIt couldn't get more slower than this!If you happen to be the partying type, and a certain geek has caught your eye, there's a guide book that will help you navigate your way into his heart. You'll have to study if you want to catch your geek, and chapters on gaming, coding, and LARPing ought to do the trick. At least That's what Ash hopes. He's taking this guide to heart, after taking one look at Fee (what a stupid name) and deciding he has to have him. It doesn't ma [...]

    11. so im totally what would happen if Ash and Fee had a kid. Geek to the core and inked. Or maybe im the offspring of a drunken night between Sheldon and Penny from the big bang theory. Either one would make perfect sense. But i digress.I effing loooooved these guys, dude. And the geek guides had me cracking the fuck up. (i already knew every reference. thanks for pointing out what a nerd i am.) This was a light, sweet read. Just what i was in the mood for. Im totally with another reviewer tho. Kud [...]

    12. This was just an adorable, slow burn romance. Enjoyed the geek references and loved that Fee (the Geek) and Ash (the tattooed party boy) really got to know each other for who they were beyond the stereotypes before jumping into bed.

    13. A Hearts On Fire ReviewAdorkable! This story is adorkable!Piper Vaughn and Xara Xanakas make a great author team with their first book from the Clumsy Cupid Guidebooks series. It's cute but not exactly sparkly paper heart cutouts, funny and a story with heart. I loved the authors play on stereotypes - an insecure-ish, tattooed, good looking "party boy" (Ash) falling for a tall, toned, handsome "geek" (Fee aka Felipe). Ash and Fee are more than just a "party boy" and "geek". They are faceted and [...]

    14. The name of the book refers to the fictitious dating guidebook which Ash consulted to win Fee’s heart. Each chapter of the story opens up with a fragment of the guidebook sharing cool trivia to help understand the typical geek’s world, even just the surface. Those were fairly accurate pieces of information if I may say so myself, being a self-professed geek and an IT professional. But what I really loved about those chapter openers is how the author associated those to actual tips on sustain [...]

    15. I liked it very much, sorry if I repeat myself in my reviews, but that's what I did:) I enjoyed reading about Ash's pursuit of Fee, against my fears it didn't get on my nerves because it was dragged out too much. Nope, very believable in pace and development, especially Ash's growing up. Well, I was charmed by Ash's voice and this would have been a 5* read, only my small niggle was the 'conflict'. I felt as if it was too exaggerated - (view spoiler)[not the quarrel, but the reason why Fee didn't [...]

    16. I originally read this WAY back when and absolutely loved it.I just finished listening to the audio and definitely enjoyed it, but reading it was better. Paul Morey is a great narrator, I just thought his voice came across as a little too old for the characters. Also, and this is not exclusively to this book or narrator, if the story has references to another language or culture, FFS please make sure they get pronounced correctly. I find it really hard to believe a character by the name of Felip [...]

    17. Ok, wow. While I had pretty much resigned myself to giving this 2 stars towards the end, it really pushed me to drop my rating even lower. Luckily, I'm in a good mood, so I stuck with 2 stars.The main reason why it gets such a low rating is because I couldn't connect with Ash. I could not get an inside to his thoughts, reasons. I didn't understand how any of the boring stuff that happened between him and Fee impacted him and changed his mentality. And some passages were outright ridiculous. Like [...]

    18. The best thing about this book for me was the end. No not the ending but the actual fact that it was over. This book was SO incredibly painful to read. I normally adore Piper Vaughns books but, I just couldn't connect to either of the main characters. Ash was needy and immature and Fee was about as animated as a piece of toast. There were brief glimmers where I thought *finally* we're going to see something but, then they would crap out. I could not for the life of me understand what had Ash all [...]

    19. I was so pro-Ash that anytime he was laughed at by his friends for trying to change or for liking someone different that I was a little hot around the collar. Every time someone threw his prior sex life in his face, I was indignant for him. He tried so hard and people didn't think he was serious and then when he changed a little people kept saying don't change for him. I seriously didn't warm up to Fee until about 65%. His lack of communication skills made him seem like one of those intellectual [...]

    20. I don't know why I let the cover keep me from reading this book for so long. I was afraid it really was some kind of guide. Nope. It was a super sweet love story and I must admit Fee seemed more like a hot piece of man meat than a geek to me but hey, I'm not complaining. I will say that I was almost as frustrated as Ash was with the long wait for actual intercourse. I like me some smexing. Still, a great, fun read. :)

    21. This is a gem of a story. Witty and tender. Fee and Ash are wonderful, flawed characters, that just begging to be loved, which I did without reservation. The geek and the party boy is a gentle story full of longing, hope, and missteps. It was great to read at bedtime, sending me off to sweet dreams.

    22. Superficial and frequently irritating, this one didn’t work for me.The framing device of the “Guidebook” about “Geeks” was off-putting because it seemed to be written for nonagenarians living under a rock. You don’t need to be a geek to know what RTFM means, or the difference between Kirk and Picard. Steampunk fandom has no more to do with “geeks” than any other media fandom such as Potter, hobbits or comics, yet those didn’t rate chapters in the “Guide.”Ash was clueless ab [...]

    23. This book took me a little getting into, I'm not sure why, maybe because at the start Ash seemed a tad cocky and full of himself. As I read on though, I slowly fell in love with it and Ash and Fee.Ash is the good time boy, likes to club and party and NEVER says no. I can see why the authors wrote him as so sure of himself at the start, it showed his character arc after meeting Fee beautifully. A tattoo artist who is hoping to own his own shop soon with his best friend, this is the first book I h [...]

    24. I loved how the book was set up, with the beginning of each chapter being part of the dating guide.Rating 4Observations whilst reading, Contains Spoilers:My rating was Initially 5 as the beginning of the novel was excellent, but unfortunately after they began going steady the story became a bit boring and felt more like 3 stars(Ash monologue about the lack of sex was grating). The drama with Fee's dad was obvious, since we get a major hint at his Bday party.I liked the slight dig at torrent site [...]

    25. This story was not an only enjoyable tale of a geek and a party boy, it was darn fun to read! Ash and Fee have a very slow building relationship but once they exploded, they were very hot together. I really enjoyed the slow buildup of their romance, though. It was enjoyable watching Ash as he was slowly awakened to his own sense of self and his life took on new meaning and purpose. Fee was an adorable geek, but powerfully sexy and attractive and when he wanted to finally impress Ash, he took his [...]

    26. I put this book on my TBR in Oct of 2012. I always found a reason to talk myself outta picking it up and reading it at that time.until NOW!I was Ash's personal cheerleader for most of the book. I've never found myself rooting for a guy to get his man, more than I did for Ash!I will admit that the book started out a tad slow but still had enough oomph to keep me reading without groaning about it. I liked Fee from the beginning and I can understand his reasons for not really wanting to get involve [...]

    27. What a creative book! Each chapter begins with such a clever analogy from the computer world to the relationship world. And the wordplay! So fun. Even the individual chapters are broken down into sections (i.e. 1.1, 1.2, just like a manual). As for the story? Wonderfully easy to read: likeable characters, yummy--just the right amount of tension and release. Perfect for a light, captivating feel-good read. It has substance--the characters seem real and their journey believable--and it has excelle [...]

    28. 3.5-4.0 starsAsh and Fee were absolutely adorable in their dance to romance, but once again, I felt like I was really missing Fee's POV. To me, Fee never felt as invested or as involved in Ash as Ash was in Fee I guess I just dislike reading about two people and only being allowed in one head. Damn greedy, Marissa. ;-pStill a good story and I look forward to reading more by these authors!
