What happens when a star-gazing professor falls for his hot young housekeeper? One heck of an earthy explosion…
Professor Marek Janos’s genius at analyzing stellar explosions doesn’t apply to his own disordered world. Forgetting to eat, sleep, and leave his lab has triggered some epic personal disasters. When his family insists he hire live-in help, he discovers home life has awesome benefits. His new housekeeper’s smile sparks more energy than a supernova. And the way he moves? It rocks Marek’s galaxy.
Pete Schulz took a tough fall from his high-flying life in Hollywood. But how does a guy whose best skill is getting dirty clean up his act? His new gig with Domesticated Inc seems like a great first step. Keeping house for a nerdy young astrophysics professor is exactly the low-key, no-chance-for-trouble job he needs, right?
Living together is surprisingly easy for both men. And fun. And more than a little hot. It’s when they’re faced with the idea of living apart that the truly messy work begins…
I enjoyed this story. I felt the story was much more about Pete coming to terms with his past and being able to move on than it was about Marek, though Marek is absolutely adorkable as the title suggests. I am looking forward to more stories in this series and can’t wait to find out who will catch the love bug next. I guess this was a spin off from one of the author’s other series but I hadn’t read any and it didn’t hurt my enjoyment or understanding of this book.
Pete has a few things he needs to come clean to Marek about and he is afraid of those ruining their burgeoning relationship. Marek doesn’t see how things are so complicated between them, they love each other and that’s all that should matter, but they have some hurdles to get past first.
I absolutely love Marek, it was easy to understand his thoughts and actions and how much he wanted everything to work out in real life like it did in his head. I liked Pete, I just felt that he hurt Marek with some of the push and pull and not being completely up front but he gets the chance to work it out and it also give Marek the chance to show both of them he doesn’t need a keeper. I’m glad Marek’s uncle wasn’t around much because that man sure has some boundary issues and is a jerk.
The cover art by Black Jazz Design is adorably cute and I love it.
