Book Review: Medium, Sweet, Extra Shot of Geek by R. Cooper
This is a quick easy read. The characters are likeable and nice, but I wish there had been a little more character development, especially with Tavio. We learned a little about his background, but something still seemed missing. I do appreciate how the author somehow managed to make me feel the tension that seemed to radiate off of Tavio at any given moment. However, so many times I wanted to scream at him, "just speak!" There's the strong silent type and then there's Tavio. I figured he suffered from PTSD and just wasn't comfortable around people, but his lack of talking or even reacting was frustrating at times.
The introduction of Tommy's daughter was a little unexpected, but was used as a plot device for Tommy to convince Tavio to go on a date. I personally would have preferred a different route.
