Geek Speak (boyxboy)

Aiden Miller był jedną z tych osób, o których nie było głośno. Zamiast upijania się do nieprzytomności i szukania kolejnych dziewczyn, które zgodzą się na przygodę na jedną noc, on spędzał wieczory nad książkami i grami strategicznymi, sam ze sobą. I nie widział w tym nic złego, jednak - do czasu.Do czasu, kiedy jedyna osoba, która jeszcze nie wrzuciła go na swoją czarną listę - Lucy Sherman, zobowiązała się do zmienienia całkowicie jego stylu i podejścia do życia. Pozostaje teraz tylko pytanie - czy wyjdzie to Aidenowi na dobre? Czy znajdzie on dzięki temu przyjaciół i uznanie, piękną dziewczynę i miejsce w hierarchii, czy może... coś jeszcze?
