Publisher's Summary

Relationships aren’t rocket science. If they were, I might stand a chance of figuring one out.

Elijah

Saying I've had a crush on my best friend's older brother, Pax, most of my life is like saying the big bang was just an explosion. It's true, but I'm not sure that quite captures the essence of its true enormity.

I know he's only hanging out with me because I'm new in town and getting my PhD doesn't leave me with much time to make friends. And even if it did, my strength is mathematics, not friend-making. What I don't understand is why he kissed me...why he seems to want to keep kissing me. I don't think my advanced physics knowledge is going to help me figure this one out. But I think for once I'm okay with not knowing, as long as Pax and I don't know together.

Pax

He's still the awkward Nerdlet I remember...he's also probably the cutest, most tempting man I've laid eyes on. I know I should keep my hands off him, but this thing between us is like a force of nature. I want to be his first everything. He says we're nothing more than atoms crashing into each other. I'm no scientist but I don't think either of us are braced for the explosion.

Rocket Science is a stand-alone MM romance featuring an inexperienced nerd, a cocky player, and a satisfying HEA

Omg loved this so much

There’s the perfect balance of sexy time and romance in this story, it’s pretty plot/character driven which I enjoyed. can I also mention how HOT it was hearing the scenes of Pax with his Nerdlet . 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 of steam for sure & the sweetness in this story is enough to give you a cavity. The narrator is new to me and I was completely sold on his performance of one of my favorite reads this year! His voices were pretty spot on how I imagined them. This is the perfect book to start with if you are unfamiliar with the author’s work as it is a standalone and showcases her talent perfectly. There’s plenty of banter/snark, the characters are fully developed, the entire plot is GOLD, and you get a lot of laughs with some fantastic love scenes (which I don’t even usually read).

Loved the nerdlet!

This book just gave me all the feels. I’d already read it, but listening to it was just as amazing. The new-to-me narrator was pretty good, too.

Narration sucks.

The narration is horrible. Don't waste your money. The narrator sounds like he's reading an instruction manual very stiff and robotic.

Oh how I adore this book!!!

I almost never both read and listen to a book, I just do not have enough time to do both and I want to get in as many books as possible. I make the rare exception for books that are 5 star reads for me, it is an o
pportunity to experience a book I love all over again and with an added interpretation from the narrator.
First the book: this is hands down my favorite book by KM Neuhold and I have read everything she has written. Rocket Science checked all of my favorite boxes: nerd, virgin, smart dialogue, sweetness and all the feels...I got butterflies more than once reading this book. And the steamy times were off the chart hot, but balanced perfectly based upon the characters. I adored Pax and watching him fall in love with Elijah, his Einstein, his Nerdlet, it was pure perfection! It was so well written and flowed effortlessly, I didn't want it to end.
The narration: Zachary Zaba is a new narrator for me. I will admit at first I was not on board with his voice, it was very deep and I had a hard time connecting with it, especially his voice for Pax. I am so glad I kept going though, because somewhere along the way everything clicked and I was sold. Pax is supposed to have a deep voice, that is how his character was written. His voice for Elijah was perfect and boy can the man read a steamy scene...he was spot on. I would definitely listen to him again and I am glad I got to experience him narrating this book!

This book just didn't do it for me. It was cute and a bit sexy but I just found myself a little bored.

God I love Nerdlet and Pax

This book was great and it's so much better on audio. Hearing these characters brought to life by Zachary Zaba is amazing. I definitely recommend this audio even if you haven't read the book. KM does a fantastic job of writing memorable and loveable characters.

Sometimes you have to wait and simmer.

Sometimes the time is right to strike. It may hurt when you find out more people love you, but it is best to love the one you are with.

WHY DID I WAIT??? Amazing book I loved Einstein/ Nerdlet. These 2 experimenting with love was so funny. Zachary is a new to me narrator but he did a fantastic job with these characters can't wait to continue with this world.

great story

I really enjoyed the story but this new to me narrator was difficult to listen to. A few times I almost gave up on the audio to jump to the ebook.

If you are a fan of the narrator then definitely pick up this book. If he is new to you give it a chance. It took me about 2hrs in to be able to actually enjoy listening.

3.5/4 stars - decent story

I was a bit indifferent about one of this author’s previous books, but I liked this one more. Nice story. It did fizzle out a bit for me at the end, but I liked the relationship progression.

Perfect!

I loved this book the first time I read it, and I love it even more now that I've listened to the audiobook. Elijah and Pax are so freaking adorable. I instantly fell head over heels in love with both of them. Rocket Science had me simultaneously swooning and giggling. The perfect combination of best friend's brother and nerdy virgin, plus a wonderful mix of steam and banter, had me hooked on this story from the very beginning. I never wanted it to end. Plus, the narration was absolutely amazing, and brought Elijah and Pax to life perfectly!

Excellent

Rocket Science is another cracking book from KM Neuhold. A nerdy virgin and a commitment phobe player are our two main characters and their journey to HEA is adorable, funny and hot!

Elijah is socially awkward and really doesn’t know how to act around people, he had some bad experiences when he was younger that have dented his confidence and just had his best friend Theo to be himself with. He’s never had a boyfriend and secretly pined after Theo’s older brother Pax for most of his teenage years. Although I felt a bit sorry for Elijah he didn’t seem lacking in anything major, he was out pursuing his dream of working for NASA and love wasn’t in the picture. Oh how some time spent with his teenage crush Pax can change things.

Pax is a player and doesn’t really do relationships, he’s doing his brother a favour helping Elijah get out more and settled in to his new life in California. He certainly wasn’t expecting to start questioning everything he thought about himself. Pax is adorable even though he has no idea how lovely he is, some questionable decisions in his past have led him to believe he’s not boyfriend material and he seems to actively do what he can to ensure that’s the case. He doesn’t bet on Elijah sneaking his way into his heart.

The banter between these to is great, some of the texts between them had me laughing and I will certainly never look at a banana again without thinking about this book!

Zachary Zaba is a fantastic narrater, he gives distinct voices to Pax and Elijah and he’s amazing at the bedroom scenes!!

It’s an easy decision to get this one, you’ll not be disappointed.
