    2. Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts is a sweet opposites attract story of Quinn and Spencer. Spencer has had a crush on his neighbor Quinn for a while and after Quinn is injured in the line of duty Spencer is able to be there for him. This was such a delightful little treat.

I had a perma-grin almost the entire time I wa [...]

    4. You are spot on Spencer, this was fun! I always get a bit nervous reading books with law enforcement MC's. Why? Well, it's completely personal. It's not something I usually share so, I'm sure you don't know this about me. But, this is my hubby's work attireUnless you've sewn your spouses' blood type onto their clothing, you truly can't understand how the career impacts your life. SWAT story? I can totally relate.

    6. 3.5 starsThis was a light, fluffy, fun read and I really enjoyed it, but I do have a few complaints that took away some of the joy. Gruff, cranky Quinn, a macho SWAT team member sidelined from active duty after being shot, is entirely too caustic for sweet, nerdy Spencer in the beginning. I actually didn't warm up to him until the end of the book. I am surprised Spencer waited him out actually! But the HEA made me smile.Quinn's rowdy SWAT buddies rubbed me the wrong way and treated Spencer terri [...]

    7. Review written February 21, 20163.2 Stars - A cozy M/M novella bagatelle*********************************************Spencer Morgan is a pale geeky guy who likes to bake muffins and cook. Julian “Quinn” Quinetro is his tough, newly injured, Miami SWAT officer neighbor. They are suddenly swept into each others lifes and it is soon attraction in the air I listened to the 2:30 hours (~ 90 pages) novella audiobook nicely narrated by Michael Stellman of Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts and I just sm [...]

    8. Well, that was just too cute for words!What? You still here? I said it was too cute for words, people. Sheesh.

    9. 4.5 mouthwatering stars!Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts is a sweet little contemporary from the amazing Charlie Cochet. I love contemporary and I love Charlie’s THIRDS series, so I had a feeling this would be the perfect little story for me.I was right.Quinn, a Miami SWAT officer, is injured on the job. When his brother-in-law drops off meds for him, he runs into Quinn’s new neighbor, Spencer, who has a crush on Quinn. Quinn’s brother-in-law asks Spencer to give Quinn his meds, which is how [...]

    10. I'm a sucker for the geek gets the hot guy stories. I eat 'em right up. This was very well done, but just too short. The dialogue was fun and I liked both MCs in spite of Quinn being a grumpy Gus. Could have used some more sexy times, but luckily I have a huge porn collection to see me through times like these. Javier

    11. Short but sweet, if Charlie Cochet ever wants to write more Spencer and Quinn I’ll be ready to read it!After seven years on Miami SWAT, Quinn is injured in the line of duty and stuck in his apartment recovering and growing crankier by the day. His large family means well, but they are driving him crazy. New Jersey transplant Spencer has been secretly crushing on his next door neighbor for a year now. With a little push from his friend and neighbor Danny, Spencer is determined to help Quinn out [...]

    12. Ahhhhhhh, this was just too cute! I finished this and immediately re-read it. I rarely, rarely do that. I don't know what else to say except this was way too short because I want more of these guys. Spencer is super sweet and is insecure about his sexual allure I guess you could say. He wants to have Quinn notice him and like him and dreams of the time when Quinn will see him as someone who can be his partner. After the unfortunate accident that leaves Quinn on medical leave from the SWAT team, [...]

    13. A feel-good story with an okay plot which is low on the angst. The best thing that this short has to offer is that it did not try to squeeze everything in -- which should be expected of a short.

    14. How cute was that??? Very sweet. And funny, too! I loved Quinn and Spencer! Quinn's family was hysterical, especially his mama. I seriously loved these guys and want to hear more of their story.

    15. I loved this, they both so sweet together. I love a story with a nerd, /fireman, police, military, and loved that he was an Swat. It was too short and I wanted more.

    16. This is sweet, a little silly, and has wonderful characterization.I think I liked Quinn's mama, Mimi, the best. She's closely followed by Danny, Spencer's best friend.Despite the brevity of the story, each character feels real and important in the lives of Spencer and Quinn. The prose itself felt a bit clunky and stunted here and there, but the dialogue definitely works.Light on angst and action, medium on the emotion scale, and top of the pops on the sweets.Whenever you're in the mood for a qui [...]

    17. Funny scenes, sweet moments and scorching times. You definitely can tell this is a Charlie Cochet shorty story. This was a cute novella. I really liked the character development that we got for Spencer and Quinn. Spencer was adorable in his chef aprons and super hero clothing. I did see some similarities between him and another character of hers, but that's her comfort zone it seems like. Quinn was uber hot. I liked him alot, I thought his beginning sexy was extremely sweet. Loved seeing Quinn's [...]

    18. Really not good. The opening scene was all high-octane action, and then the rest of the book was lame TV-movie romcom. Spencer's personality was that he was a clumsy babbler who could cook, while Quinn was the alpha-type placeholder.And that scene? With the (view spoiler)[stripper? That was some bullshit. If Spencer had been a woman she would have a) NEVER FALLEN FOR THAT IN A MILLION YEARS, and b) kicked Javier's nuts into his throat. (hide spoiler)]Think about this well-drawn character: Quinn [...]

    19. 2.5 StarsCute, feel good, and quite funny despite a meddling prick of an asshole friend who can’t mind his own damn freakin beeswax!!! Can you say cringe worthy rage?? I can’t even. Sweet, kind Spencer has a serious crush on his neighbor, and Quinn’s on the job injury is definitely the perfect opportunity to get to know him.Grumpy, loner Quinn is skeptical of his strange neighbor, especially after a disastrous first meeting. However Spencer’s tenacity surprises both of them, and as they [...]

    20. In a word, this is cute. Very cute. Also slightly unsatisfying. Rushed romance that lacks any meaningful character interaction, a rushed ending, a bizarre stripping scene that still doesn't make much sense to me. But it's innocuous. If you're looking for a fluffy, short read that's relatively angst-free, and you're a fan of the whole "buff straight-gay meets nerdy twink", this might do it for you.Not one I'll bother visiting again, so Removed from Kindle.

    21. A cute read. Hunky injured SWAT team member Quinn and the nice, helpful computer nerd neighbour Spencer, a sort of twist on the classic jock/geek theme. 3.5 stars.

    22. Michael Stellman delivers a sweet performance of this cute novella.When Miami SWAT officer Julian “Quinn” Quintero is shot in the line of duty during a raid he's laid up out of work until he heals up. When his brother in law tries to drop off a prescription but can't get Quinn to open his door, he ends up leaving the medicine with Quinn's next door neighbor, Spencer Morgan.Spencer has noticed the hot officer and his 8-pack for over a year, but, unfortunately Quinn's never noticed him. Until [...]

    23. It's okay, I guess *shrugs*. It has its cute moments. The stripping scene in the end is SO bizarre though. It is rushed and happens quite a sudden. I wonder if it is because the author was struggling to find a conflict somehow, especially since the tone was pretty light before that. Spencer is the sunshine of this book, all the rating stars I gave is for him only. Or maybe Quinn's boisterous family as well. As for Quinn, I thought he was kinda rude. Not like he pays attention to Spencer before, [...]

    24. The thing that I love the most about this book is how accurate the author portrayed a Latin family.I was laughing so much at this part "if Quinn didn’t pick up the call from his Mum , his mom would think that apocalypse had come and claimed him, or that he drowned in the tub, fallen down the stairs, or any horrific tragedy her overreacting imagination conjure up" OMG this author described a Latin Mum so well, this is me for sure, and the Spanish translations were flawless!The romance part of t [...]

    25. As a South Florida native and product of a Cuban-American family this called out to me and I must say Charlie Cochet nailed it, without overdoing it.I would have been so easy to get carried away and overdoing it, stretching out the book needlessly and she played perfectly. We get just the right amount ethnic humor, the right amount of the bafflement by the newly arrived transplant from the north and the right amount of alpha maleness.I think as long as Ms. Cochet writes, I'll be right there as I [...]

    26. Too damn cute. Hated Quinn's friends, for the most part, but I adored Spencer and Quinn together. I want more. This ended way too soon. Yeah, I'm not done with these two.
