I love geeks and I thought this book sounded cute. Unfortunately, I felt like the author tried too hard. Have you ever seen Big Bang Theory? I felt like the author was trying to make Herbert like Sheldon from BBT but Herbert was just too clueless. Also, some police procedure stuff just didn't seem right. However, this is a light-hearted romantic comedy type book so I overlooked that stuff for the most part and just went with the author's intentions. They were good.
