Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Geekerella by Ashley PostonOMG was this a darling story. You've got Elle, fanblogger extraordinaire, and then Darien, the guy taking over her favorite character on her favorite show. Now, Elle's not in a really good place what with her evil stepmother and two evil stepsisters ruining her life. Her dad is dead and really she's just biding her time until she can get away from her "family." She's treated like the family drudge and doesn't feel appreciated by anyone. Now she learns that some popular actor from a show that her stepsisters love is going to be taking over the role of Carmindor and she is... not impressed. An excoriating review that she writes goes viral.
Darien is hurt. He knows Starfield, it was one of his favorite shows. In fact, he even went to some cons before his best friend sold him out to the paparazzi. Now, the idea of attending a con is just painful. Especially since the Starfield fanbase doesn't seem to be impressed by his resume. When he's blindsided by a promise to attend Exelsicon, he tries to contact the organizer but ends up with Elle's number instead (since her dad created the con and she inherited his phone.) From there, the two end up with a text message flirtation that starts to become something more.
I liked the alternating first-person of this story. We got to know both of the characters so they were more than just stereotypes. I didn't love the ending but it was mostly a very lovely story.

Four stars
