Publisher's Summary

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.

Terrible female narrator, great otherwise

I enjoyed everything about this book except for the female narrator’s performance. She drags out and drawls the last syllable of every sentence she speaks! She even does it every time she says “Saraaaaaaaah” at the beginning of each of her chapters.

It creates such a distracting and whining style that I couldn’t bear to listen to for very long. It took me forever to get through the book because I couldn’t stand her speaking style.

The humorous story and male narrator were the only reasons I was able to finish the book, though I had to do it in sessions.

A Cupcake in a Tutu, an underwear model, bees....


ohhh...a grownup boy band is in this one too. Sarah is shy, brilliantly smart and afraid to let her own life shine. With good reason. She also has the greatest best friend ever to be a quirky sidekick in a rom-com! Beck is confident, devoted to his friends and family, and looking for a meaning to his own life that is bigger than being a former boy member and an underwear model.

This book is full of laughs, quirks, and beyond silly antics....did I mention Sarah as the greatest BF ever? She needs her own book she is that great! The Sarah and Beck are believable, even is their lives are not, their families and friends are ones that you can imagine wanting in your own life, and the crazy experiences had are icing on the cake, just not on the pig!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book! I am not an Erin Mallon devotee but enjoyed her performance in this book. I find the way she narrates to be a bit one note of over emphasis for my personal liking with a tendency to end every sentence a bit drawn out, this performance did not seem to be as heavy handed as others of her's that I have listened to. Jason Clarke was amazing and perfect for Beck and captured the character's over enthusiasm with a genuineness that added without feeling unbelievable.

Refreshing!!!

I very rarely give 5 stars, but this story was refreshingly different. I've been thinking about taking a break from this genre because I was getting tired of the same old story format. But with this book, the male lead wasn't a brooding jerk. There wasn't any heavy baggage for either lead character that was holding them back from falling in love. There wasn't endless chapters of me thinking, "just get over yourselves and be together!"
The narrators were great and the build up to sex was fabulous!

Hooked in the first 5 minutes😍😍

I'm starting to love ❤ this author. She writes love stories that are funny, sweet, with great romance. The characters are so adorable and loveable. I love how she includes the animals as well. I can't wait to read/listen to the next story.

Absolute Perfection.

I love Beck and his over the top, happy all the time outlook. He and Sarah are great characters who really respect each other and despite the way they’re thrown together, really have a connection. I’ve not laughed this hard in a long time. This book is definitely worth listening to over and over. Put me on the list to get my own “Beck-Bot”!!

No one writes humor like Pippa Grant.

ok, ok, ok, so if you like super funny crazy, zany guys paired up with a smart, sassy, beautiful lady then Beck and Sara's story is one you just HAVE to read. Add in a pot belly pig, named cupcake and the rest of the super zany cast and we have a winner. So quit guessing if you should or shouldn't buy this book and just do it already. then sit back and read, laugh, and enjoy some really great humor.

Beck and Sarah are the perfect accidental Hollywood romance

Beck is the manchild of his framily... he has epic video games in his house and models underwear. When he sends a tweet to someone who is NOT his sister he has a lot of making up to do.

Sarah is a geek... she owns it though... at least she owns that part of herself. She has hidden who she is after an embarrassing moment in high school... which wouldn’t be bad... if she wasn’t the daughter of Hollywood’s power couple. She’s lived a nice quiet life for over a decade... until the tweet heard around the world.

Beck and Sarah are amazing together! Two people who have been burned by their celebrity come together for the love of giraffes, new friends and proving that who you are on the inside is what counts.

Jason and Erin were amazing! It always intrigues me how Jason has 5000 voices!

Beck & Sarah!

We have all been in that position where the message was sent to the wrong person! Beck, a famous underwear model and former member of the band Bro Code meant to send the sarcastic tweet to only his sister. But when it goes public rather than private, life for Beck as he knows it becomes a social media disaster. Sarah, the daughter of a famous acting couple has done whatever it takes to hide from the public. But when she bumps into Beck and tasers him, life as she wants it to be changes. Now in the media spotlight, pretending to be his girlfriend so she can promote her own causes, will she be able to withstand his charms? This is such a fun listen! This second book in the Bro Code series continues to be funny, and hot, and has a great backstory letting us see the importance of life outside the spotlight. Who would think giraffes could be so much fun to watch? I love how this all melds together, the family feel as well as the familiar feel of the story. Love the characters, especially Beck and the way he is just so attentive and loving. Oh, and Sarah's dad, what a hoot! Keep bringing me more of this boy band!

Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon are such a good team. I love their narrative styles and they compliment each other so well. As Beck, Clarke brings his fun, snarky side out and makes you fall in love with him. His voice is the perfect fit. Sarah needs a little shy, aloofness and Mallon hones in and gives her the perfect sound, changing it up as Sarah relaxes. It's a funny and loving listen, an incredible romcom!

Can Rage Yog Help Fight the Urainiuns?

Title: America's Geekheart
Author: Pippa Grant
Format: Audio
Narrators: Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon
Genre: Romantic Comedy, fake relationship
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Serie: Bro Code book 2
POV: Beck and Sara
Steam Level: Slow burn to steamy
5/5

In preparation/anticipation of the newest Bro Code book coming out I've gone back and am listening to the earlier books in this series. America's Geekheart was just as funny the second-time around and the intermingling and foreshadowing to future books makes Pippa Grant a genius. I still love Sara's dad. And I think Erin Mallon did him better justice than Jason Clarke but neither compared to the images Pippa Grant created in my head. I loved listening to the bonus epilogues which I didn't read when I read the ARC of ebook originally.

I received this audiobook for free from the author. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Have a good laugh with this book!

It’s only my second book by this author, and I enjoyed it just as well.

I love a good romance between a geeky quirky women and a model-like hottie. Especially if they bond over their love for food and geeky series, like here. I enjoyed that part because, usually with instalove, the characters barely speak to each other. That’s not the case here, there’s a real connection.

Sarah and Beck were so different from each other. Beck sees the world through rose colored glasses, while Sarah is always waiting for the other shoe to drop. But they had the same insecurities–or close enough. Since they can relate to each other, that deepens their connection.

The author is great with ensemble scenes, and there’s a few here. Always hilarious, always with fast paced conversations with a lot of sarcasm and comedic situations. The side characters all have their own personality, and they’re always… let’s say interesting, for the lack of a better word. Not your cardboard cut sidekicks for sure.

Both narrators are perfect for that kind of romcom, with a great sense of comedy and pace. Have a good laugh with this book!

Really funny

This is actually my favourite audiobook, and I have listened to it multiple times. This reason that it is my favourite is just that it is so happy, it is a laugh out loud sweet romance. I really enjoyed it, put a smile on my face, and I really wanted the two main characters to get together.

So much fun to listen to

While I enjoyed the first one I enjoyed this one far more. I definitely laughed out loud on many occasions and chuckled a lot. Loved the slow easy way the relationship was built. So well written and expertly narrated. Thank you for an enjoyable 8 hours

Get ready to laugh and swoon

I've read all of Pippa Grant's novels and if you want some laugh out loud romance, definitely check out her books. This book was a little less laugh out loud but expect to have a smile permanently on your face as your heart yearns to be a part of the family. The hero, Beck, is perfect. The heroine, Sarah, is perfect. The issues tackled, including giraffes being endangered (who knew!?) are deep and relevant to the environment and the world today. The supporting cast? Amazing. I mean, seriously, these are type of people you want to surround yourself with. I can't wait to hear more about everyone else getting their HEA!

I would listen to Jason Clarke read most things but given how much I love the book, having him play Beck is fantastic. He has fantastic pacing, his ability to play multiple characters, including female characters, is note worthy and really, his comedic timing really works for this book. Erin Mallon is the same. She was fantastic with the different characters- I even liked her lower voice for Beck and male characters- I am always in awe of how these narrators can infuse emotion while unnaturally heightening or lowering the timbre of their voices.

This book made me smile throughout, belly laugh at many parts and swoon in equal parts.

I requested and received this book. Thank you for the fun listen.

Hilarious!!!

Loved it. Once you start listening you won't want to stop. I laughed out loud and couldn't stop smiling the whole story. Super cuteness overload. If your after a fun, lighthearted romance full of love, laughter and a few geeky moments thrown in than look no further. Definitely worth a listen
