Preview — Beauty and the Brain by Elizabeth Bevarly. Too bad sexy Rosemary March didn't heed this advice -- because as an adolescent, she'd harbored a secret wish to get even with nerdy, brainy Willis Random.
She'd also had other secret wishes involving him -- ones she hoped to realize if she ever go the chance. And suddenly, thirteen years later, there was chance -- all six feet two inches of him -- knocking at her door. And as Rosemary stared at the magnificent specimen that Willis had turned into, she swore she was going to have one more crack at him. Prive to the science whiz that hers was a body as worthy of study as any comet's.

Sort order. Nov 30, Jan rated it it was ok Shelves: romance , category-romance. I'm a bit in dubio about this one. I enjoyed a lot of it, but the hero just rubbed me the wrong way. Rosemary and Willis were high-school adversaries an drove each other crazy. Of course, they were also in love with each other, but never acknowledged that to anyone. Instead they just kept on hurting and hurting each other. There was so much hurt and lasting damage from their fights in highs I'm a bit in dubio about this one.
There was so much hurt and lasting damage from their fights in highschool, a couple of times I was really moved to tears. Highschool can be so terribly vicious, and I felt so bad for Rosemary.
She was obviously the one most hurt by it all, and still she was the first one to apologize and try to move past it. Way to go girl! Willis wasn't the geeky type of brainiac, but the arrogant everyone who's IQ is smaller than mine is below me type, and after a while he started the wear on me. He stopped with all his mean remarks about Rosemary true, but he still kept thinking them. In fact, his whole way of thinking was demeaning to the core, and I just didn't feel like he truly evolved past that.
And then there wasn't nearly enough groveling in the ending seriously the way he went about the getting back together was horrible and again so arrogant. It's a shame, because their backstory was really interesting, and there was some lovely wordplays and double entendres involving Willis' telescope.
There was really a lot to like, but Willis just never came around for me. Alas, because for a while I thought I'd found the perfect brainiac romance, but I'll have to continue my search. The others in this series sound fun though, especially because they play simultaneously, and I've already had a couple of glimpses, and they sound fun. So I'll be checking them out.
Mar 17, Pam rated it it was ok Shelves: desire , beauty-and-beast. This is a 2 because the Hero was awful. He never has a redeeming quality. Just kept being a jerk. Normally I love Elizabeth Bevarly books. Her Opus trilogy is a favorite of mine and have read them numerous times, her love scenes are written well, that is why I finished the book.
Just couldn't get past Hero. First off, I couldn't read this in one sitting. I don't advise trying. Second off, this is not the sort of book I expected from this author. I hurt for the h. She's 2 years older than the H - child prodigy - and got stuck with him as a lab partner in their Jr year in HS.
Chemistry was not her strong suit. He was Add to that, a mother who expressed disapproval at her failures She's a travel agent now, who can't travel because First off, I couldn't read this in one sitting.
She's a travel agent now, who can't travel because she doesn't travel well. She never pursued her strengths - geography, art - because her self esteem got tangled up in her weaknesses. He's back in town to study the comet.
Her mother - mayor - generously offers her house that the h rents from her for him to stay in, forcing them in close proximity. He's still verbally abusive. It's because he's attracted to her and doesn't wanna be.
She tries v. Every now and then, an olive branch of sorts gets extended, they have a few minutes of civility, then he manages to remind her that he thinks she's stupid. The night of the comet, they spend the night together, causing him to miss it.
He doesn't react well the next morning. More avoidance not that I blame her. He reads her old school stuff and figures out she'd had a crush on him in spite of his being an ass when they were kids. Decides to make lots of amends, HEA, the end Do I believe the HEA?
Strangely enough, yes. SOMEbody has his work cut out for him both in his own mindset and in building up that self-esteem he's systematically shredded.
That actually might be the only reason I believe it - she has such a low opinion of herself that she'll take whatever crumbs he offers. I just The other one of the trilogy I read, the h's father was a patronizing ass toward her.
This one, her mother considered her a colossal disappointment.
