Nerd Gone Wild by Vicki Lewis Thompson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I wouldn't say this was a nerd love story. Unlike the other books in the Nerd Series, Mitchell is just disguised as a nerdy personal assistant. He's really a PI who's been hired by Ally's deceased grandmother to keep an eye on her. Ally is heiress to a fortune, but she's no Paris Hilton. She leaves the confines of her Bel Air mansion to stay in a lodge in Alaska to pursue her dream of becoming a wildlife photographer. Of course, Mitchell tags along to do his job, which irritates Ally who is trying to spread her wings a bit after years stuck in the lap of luxury.
However, Ally has a crazy, jealous (not to mention kinky) step-uncle who wants to get his hands on the money he believes is rightfully his. Can Mitchell protect Ally while keeping up his nerdy facade? You'll just have to read for yourself and find out! This definitely isn't my favorite of what I've read from the Nerd Series, but it's a nice, light read, and the residents of Porcupine, Alaska are certainly hilarious.
