Remember that time you accidentally sexted your in-laws?
Yeah. I just did that. Except worse. Now my million social media followers are reading
and sharing the rude, smartass message I meant to send privately to my little sister…and I’m officially public enemy number one.
I’m Beck Ryder. Former boy bander. Underwear model. Fashion mogul. And I just buried my entire leg in my mouth—not just my foot—modern internet style, and publicly insulted my sister’s neighbor.
Sarah Dempsey.
Also known as the woman of my dreams, who loves geeky TV shows, baseball, and giraffes, who’s just as turned on by food as I am, and who has a huge secret that I
didn’t see coming.
Now it’s time to grovel and apologize publicly on social media and hope that those same followers who helped start the raging shitstorm will help calm the waters.
Because Sarah doesn’t want the spotlight. For very good reasons that I can’t tell you
right now and trying to convince her to be my fake girlfriend to fix this mess and make me look like less of a jackass is worse than taking a kick to the nuts by Jackie Chan.
And I thought modeling underwear made me feel naked.
Trying to start a relationship in the era of the twitterazzi isn’t all that it’s cracked
up to be.
America’s Geekheart is a rockin’ fun romantic comedy featuring a billionaire fashion
mogul who got his start modeling underwear, the geeky girl next door with a secret the size of California, and more superstitions and secrets than you can shake a baseball bat at. It stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.

My review:

This is the best Pippa Grant book yet! And if you’ve read any of hers before, you know that’s saying a lot because they are all amazing.

Beck is a former member of the boy band Bro Code, now underwear model/fashion mogul, back in his hometown where he is normally both loved and left alone. On his morning jog, however, he is accosted and assaulted by yoga bricks and scolded by everyone he meets. He soon discovers that an off-color joke he was trying to privately tweet to his newly engaged sister was accidentally – and very publicly – directed at scientist and conservationist Sarah, who is also his sister’s friend and next door neighbor.

After Beck’s apology video with Sarah goes viral and the world is convinced they are together, they embark on a fake romance and real friendship in order to rehab his reputation and save a charity foundation Beck is in the process of opening.

The problem? Sarah has her own huge secrets that not even her best friend knows about, and being thrust in the spotlight also brings her skeletons out of the closet just as publicly as Beck’s tweet.

Beck and Sarah are hands down my favorite Pippa couple. They are so perfect for each other! Beck is always happy and cheerful, and Sarah learns some important life lessons from him. He also learns some important things from her that he had never before considered. But what sealed it for me was their love of Firefly. Seriously, any book that makes Firefly/Serenity references gets extra points from me. Although this book didn’t need extra points – it is hilarious and touching and everything a book should be.
