Book Review: Learning New Tricks (Bits & Bytes #3) by Allyson Lindt

We were first introduced to the hero, Archer, in the previous books in this series. Although I wasn't all the crazy about him, I did feel bad that he lost his girl to his best friend. However as this book starts off, the little bit of sympathy I had for him went flying out the window as I am reminded of what giant douche he really is. His explanation of meaningless sex to his best friend Tori just rubbed me the wrong way and made me want to throat punch him.

Tori is stuck in a job that is slowly driving her crazy as she lets them walk all over her. She is also designs costumes that Archer displays in his comic store. She wishes she knew how to separate love and sex like he does. So when he offers her some hands on lessons, she just can't refuse. However, right from the beginning it is pretty clear that these two have deeper feeling for each other than either of them realize.

Archer and Tori have this great chemistry together both in and out of the bedroom, but each also has something from their past holding them back from "more." He still seems hung up on his ex and Tori refuses to be anyone's second choice.

I have to say I wasn't sure if Archer could redeem himself in my eyes. Every time he would mention his ex or compare Tori to her I wanted to scream. Eventually though, you start to see that he isn't hung up on his ex at all, just feeling vulnerable and insecure, wondering what he did wrong so he doesn't make the same mistakes again. Now he just needs to prove to Tori that she is his #1 before it is too late.

And if I am being totally honest, things like this definitely helped Archer's case as well:

"I want to bury my dick inside you and then pound you until you forget anyone exists besides us. Until I have to swallow your cries as you come to keep you from screaming in pleasure."

This was another sexy, geeky read from Allyson Lindt, and she succeeded in getting me to like Archer by the end. I will continue to look forward to more books from her in the future.

Book Blurb:
He’s struggling to keep his business afloat. She’s trying not to surrender her sanity to corporate America. A quick fling will be the perfect stress relief - no strings, no attachment. Easier said than done! Learning New Tricks is the new romantic comedy from Allyson Lindt, Book 3 of her contemporary series, Bits & Bytes.  

Archer should be focusing on how to keep his comic- book shop from financially crashing and burning in an epic way. However, when his sexy-as-hell best friend and Sunday-afternoon-movie buddy, Tori, asks him to teach her how to keep emotions out of sex, he welcomes the distraction.

Tori couldn’t ask for a better best friend than Archer. He respects her fandom, and he lets her sell her custom-made costumes in his store. Even better, he’s willing to give her a hands-on demonstration of how to keep love and sex separate. Experience has taught her not to fall for a guy who’s as infatuated with an ex-girlfriend as Archer is, so she’s already got the no-love bit covered.

With each new lesson, the line between the physical and emotional blurs a little more. Can they let go of their pasts—and learn a few new tricks along the way—or will they lose their friendship and budding relationship for good?
