Title: Needing Seth
Author: Shawn Lane
Publisher: JMS Books
Characters: Seth Landers, Casey Logan
Sub-Genre: Contemporary Romance
Shy and a bit of a science fiction geek, Seth Landers is afraid he’s going to die a virgin.
Then one day, Casey Logan, the sexier-than-sin doctor where Seth works, notices him. Not only that, but Casey actually asks him out!
Seth’s life could finally change for the better, but only if Casey can convince the shy geek that he needs Seth in his life just as badly.
Shawn Lane is one of those authors that can be either a hit or miss with me. I’ve read a few books by her and either I really like them or not. When I read the blurb, I was excited to read it. I mean, who doesn’t love a geek who lands his man in the end? I always root for the good guy and although Seth is a nice man, I found him boring…nice guy and all.
On the other hand, Casey was the reason why I kept reading the story. I liked his patience and he is genuinely an all-around sexy, nice guy. I did find myself wondering why he would be with the always questioning, self-deprecating Seth and kind of hoped he would find someone else and move on. I will say that as the story continued Seth did grow on me a little, so I did end up kinda liking them together. I do wonder if they will have what it takes to stay together in the end.
Needing Seth is told in first person through Seth’s eyes. I think it’s because I wasn’t such a fan of Seth’s that I found myself wishing it had been told either through Casey’s eyes or in 3rd person. I felt somewhat cheated because in the end, I wanted to know more about Casey and the live he had lived.
Needing Seth is a decent read-just not a memorable one. As per this author, the sex was pretty hot and the story fast paced. I know fans of this author will enjoy in the author’s writing style and quick storytelling ability and will probably like this book more than I did and I encourage you to give it a try.
