Phoebe Link, nerd extraordinaire, has several lovers – all virtual. The men in her favorite video games are cocky, witty, and self-assured. They are also safe – they will never cheat on her or break her heart. Of course, they will also never hold her close or warm her bed.
Kyle Shepard has been smitten with Phoebe for years, yet she remains oblivious to his hints that he would like to be more than friends. With subtlety getting him nowhere, he must channel his inner ladies’ man – surely all of those reruns of Space Trek have taught him something – and ask her out.
Can Kyle convince Phoebe to take a chance on love? Can Phoebe bring herself to risk her heart in a relationship with a living, breathing man? Or, will they both get more than they bargained for when they discover that the lines between fantasy and reality can blur when romancing a nerd?
