Review: The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl – Gina Lamm

An avid gamer, Jamie Marten loves to escape into online adventure. But when she falls through an antique mirror into a lavish bedchamber—200 years in the past!—she realizes she may have escaped a little too far.

Micah Axelby, Earl of Dunnington, has just kicked one mistress out of his bed, and isn’t looking to fill it with another—least of all this sassy, nearly naked girl who claims to be from the future. Yet something about her is undeniably enticing…

Jamie and Micah are worlds apart. He’s a peer of the realm. She can barely make rent. She’s wi-fi. He’s horse-drawn. But soon the pair will do anything to avoid a Game Over.
My thoughts:
Time-traveling, yay. Who doesn’t want to go back and meet a sexy earl in regency clothes? I would go, well if I only stayed the day because in the end I want to go to the toilet, a real one. Have certain products etc etc. Much more fun to read about then then going 😉
Jamie falls through a mirror and into a room. And let’s just say that shorts and a top is not exactly what a proper young lady would be wearing. She and Micah are like dogs and cats. She says her meaning, swears, he is a true gentleman and does not know what to make of this..person. Talk about a when cultures clash. They are also meant to be, but she is nobody, he is an earl. She is staying at his place (an unmarried woman!). Scandalous.
Cultural differences, the ton and one spiteful ex-mistress is what these two will have to deal with. It will not be easy. But it makes for a fun and entertaining run. 

Conclusion:
A light cute read.

    Lol I though you were reviewing lesbian romance. You need to change the title!Still, sounds fun, I still have lots of timetravel on my shelves though.

    "I would go, well if I only stayed the day because in the end I want to go to the toilet, a real one."SAME! A quick jaunt back in time would be great, but ultimately I'm a modern girl through and through and need all my technology and amenities:)

    Oh this sounds like so much fun! I agree, I wouldn't want to go back for long, but bring the sexy earl to present day, please! That would work for me. Same gentlemanly hero, modern hygiene. :-)PS – that guy on the cover is pretty sexy!Love this review, I'll definitely have to check this out!

    hahahaha I simply love time travelling novels (allows me to live out my fantasy of meeting a gentlemen), however…I am with you. I rather read about it then live it for I would miss our modern things too much. ;D
