Release Date: April 5, 2019
Remember that time you accidentally sexted your in-laws?
Yeah. I just did that. Except worse. Now my million social media followers are reading and sharing the rude, smartass message I meant to send privately to my little sister...and I’m officially public enemy number one.
I’m Beck Ryder. Former boy bander. Underwear model. Fashion mogul. And I just buried my entire leg in my mouth—not just my foot—modern internet style, and publicly insulted my sister’s neighbor.
Also known as the woman of my dreams, who loves geeky TV shows, baseball, and giraffes, who’s just as turned on by food as I am, and who has a huge secret that I didn’t see coming.
Now it's time to grovel and apologize publicly on social media and hope that those same followers who helped start the raging shitstorm will help calm the waters.
Because Sarah doesn’t want the spotlight. For very good reasons that I can’t tell you right now and trying to convince her to be my fake girlfriend to fix this mess and make me look like less of a jackass is worse than taking a kick to the nuts by Jackie Chan.
And I thought modeling underwear made me feel naked.
Trying to start a relationship in the era of the twitterazzi isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
America’s Geekheart is a rockin’ fun romantic comedy featuring a billionaire fashion mogul who got his start modeling underwear, the geeky girl next door with a secret the size of California, and more superstitions and secrets than you can shake a baseball bat at. It stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.

“Beck Ryder, 5 stars”
Beck Ryder has a way of making things awkward, putting his foot in his mouth, etc. But usually its in private with those who know him best. Until he accidently sends out a tweet meant to be a private joke. Now the world hates him and he has to apologize to Sarah. Only Sarah is so much more than he ever could have imagined. Will something good come out of something bad?
Sarah leaves her past in the past and doesn’t talk about it. With Beck in her life her past is bound to come to light and it terrifies her. Then she gets to know him, the man who’s constantly happy. He is not like the people she grew up with and she can’t help but want him. Will she be able to deal with the media or will she cave?
I loved Americas Geekheart. Beck Ryder will put you into stitches. I loved watching Sarah transform right before us. The way he fell for her hook, line, and sinker was fantastic. Americas Geekheart has all of Grants usual humor and shenanigans. I cannot wait to see where Grant goes with the rest of this series. One thing is for sure I can always count on Grant to make me laugh and I hope you do too.
Pippa Grant hit it out of the park again with this book! Fans of hers will love this book and seeing a few previous characters, but new readers won’t have a problem dropping into the Pippaverse. This romantic comedy has an amazing plot with fun twists and shows that there is a person for everyone who will get your quirks!
I thoroughly enjoyed the plot of this book. Beck and Sarah have a very rocky start, and have a Hollywood internet paparazzi twist to all their interactions. But through it all, they manage to find the good and enjoy each other’s company.
Ya’ll, I can’t even properly describe or categorize Beck. His character would have fit right in to “Gilmore Girls.” He’s like a labrador puppy, full of love and life and laughter and verbal diarrhea and wants to make the world a better place and make sure his family and friends are safe and happy. So when he makes a tragic mistake and manages to anger the internet gods, he’s got a serious uphill battle to revive his image. His unintended target and now love interest, Sarah, is hiding a secret. She’s an environmentalist, very private, and not interested in having her secret revealed. I kinda want to be Sarah when I grow up; closet geek, syfy fan, nature lover, and fan of comfy underwear. I feel completely unable to properly describe these two for this review! They are some of my favorite Pippa Grant characters, and I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I liked them after not loving Bro Code #1. But these two have a fantastic plot line and story arc.
How could Sarah not be attracted to underwear model Beck? Poor girl never stood a chance. Except for the whole start to the relationship of course. So the way their relationship progresses is completely natural, from unknown entities or enemies, to forced cooperation for mutual benefits, to friendship. Through it all, they start a friendship that makes the basis of something more. That something turns into a beautiful relationship that progresses in such a natural way with fantastic chemistry.
Beck sucked me into this book, and I didn’t put it down until I was finished just a few hours later. Ms. Grant managed to craft an well written story that didn’t seem overdone or overly Hollywood, while still portraying Beck and Sarah as great people doing the best with their situation. I loved not only Beck and Sarah’s story, but the introduction of all of their friends and family. I’m hopin Charlie and so many others will get a story soon!
Conclusion - Recap how you felt about the book. Will you read other books by this author? Would you recommend this book to others? Final thoughts on book.
This book is my favorite Bro Code book, and a great addition to the Pippaverse. I loved seeing some of our favorite hockey players and one very talented ventriloquist. There were so many new characters introduced in this book, along with the rest of the Bro Code band, that all need a story, so I’ll be waiting for their books impatiently.

Pippa Grant is a stay-at-home mom and housewife who loves to escape into sexy, funny stories way more than she likes perpetually cleaning toothpaste out of sinks and off toilet handles.
