Rocket science is no problem. Falling in love, on the other hand…

College student Melody Gage is craving a night of no-strings fun when she meets charming out-of-towner Jeremy, and that’s exactly what she gets. Until three years later, when Melody relocates to Los Angeles and finds herself thrust back into Jeremy’s orbit.

Not only does her hunky one-night stand work at the same aerospace company where she’s just started her dream job, he’s the CEO’s son. Jeremy’s got a girlfriend and a reputation as a bad boy, so Melody resolves to keep her distance. Despite her good intentions, a series of awkward circumstances—including an embarrassing crying jag, a latte vs. computer catastrophe, and an emergency fake date—throw her together with the heavenly-smelling paragon of hotness.

As the billionaire playboy and nerdy IT girl forge an unlikely friendship, Melody’s attraction to Jeremy grows deeper than she’s ready to admit. Will she risk it all for a shot at her happy ending?

The debut novel from author Susannah Nix, Remedial Rocket Science follows in the tradition of contemporary romantic comedy favorites like Penny Reid, Sally Thorne, and Jennifer Crusie. This lighthearted slow burn romance is the first in a series of standalone rom-coms featuring geeky heroines who work in STEM fields

***Katie – #NerdGirlKtLbLy’s  Review***
Melody Gage can make a computer out of spare parts, but falling in love isn’t as easy for her. She’s waiting for a date one night at a bar when the guy is a no-show. She’s being hit on by an obnoxious jerk and is ready go to when another guy, named Jeremy, comes up and pretends to be her date so she can get away. They start talking and hit it off and a few hours (and drinks later,) they have a one night stand. 3 years later Melody moves from New York to L.A. for a job offer. She gets in touch with Jeremy again and he tells her he has a girlfriend but would love to still hang out and be friends. Melody agrees and after getting the job not only finds out that Jeremy not only works in the same building, but his mother is the C.E.O. of the company. Things get really awkward when Melody, Jeremy, and his girlfriend Lacey are out for dinner one night. Melody finds out that Jeremy was still with Lacey at the time they hooked up which makes for an awkward dinner. Lacey doesn’t seem upset though because she and Jeremy only got together after an awkward and unfortunate situation and are still together because they just feel they should be. All the characters grow so much in this. Melody is still new in town and even though she and Jeremy are friends, they do hit some bumps in the road, Jeremy is still moving past his partying college years, and Lacey and Melody’s friendship is growing and Lacey’s starting to realize that even though she cares about Jeremy, she may have her eyes on someone else.
You will fall in love with the characters and grow frustrated with them also. I laughed out loud a lot during this, and my heart also broke for all of them. It’s a very good read, and I enjoyed it so much.
