New York City Homicide Detective Chuck Davidson is a guy’s guy. He likes sports, beer, and classic cars—fancy gadgets, not so much. When yet another high-tech phone goes on the fritz, he knows he needs help, and he meets a man who loves technology as much as he hates it—cute but awkward biochemist Herbert Pommerset.
Herb’s never been with a man—not even on a date. He hides behind his research, daydreaming about what it might be like to find someone special. A malfunctioning phone causes his path to cross with a sexy older detective, and Herb wishes he’d spent less time studying science and more learning how to flirt, because he can think of some experiments he’d like to conduct with Chuck. None of his considerable intelligence is helping him express his desires to the other man.
Just when it seems they might overcome their differences, Herb’s research puts him in danger. He’s made a discovery that could cost him his life, and Chuck must use his very different talents to rescue the geek he’s coming to love.

Being the smartest and genius apparently didn't make a 27 years old Herb mature. He's more like a 17 years old, act and sounds.
At first, it was cute but the no filter mouth, and this naive personality bored me easily. I think he's the most annoying motormouth innocent MC I have ever 'met'. And as for an 'innocent' person, he surely a most horny one. Speaking of double standard. Or incostitency? No idea.
I also annoyed of their PDA all the time, at work, in front of Herb's boss, at work, while working, I found it too unprofessional and irrittaed me to tears.
I worked in Compliance departement once, and that kind of attitude is not allowed ffs!
If not for the mystery, I have no idea how to rate this book, because, Chuck and Herb are the most annoyingly horny all the time couple in books.
Oh, not to mention the love at first sight thing. And making out at Chuck's parent's family dinner.
I read the 2nd edition ARC of this book, provided by Dreamspinner press. No high rating required.
