I've mentioned before that I have had the chance to read/beta some of the Love's Landscapes stories. Geeking Out on 11c by LL Bucknor is one of them. Here is my review, as posted previously on Goodreads.

What did I think - I think I loved the HELL out of this book. Firstly Ed, oh my god...geeky and so freaking gorgeous with his shyness and social awkwardness. I wish I lived next door to him. I mean he has a fish called Atari, kinda 'nuf said.
Then Mateo - be still my beating heart. Funny and not at all awkward, not to mention not lacking in the old looks department. Mateo's attraction to Ed is just so damn lovely. I kinda like that hot dude falling for the geek - mainly because the geek is never quite as undesirable as they themselves believe. I love that Mateo cares enough to bear with Ed, to coax him out of his shell.
LL Bucknor writes some funny stuff. Like seriously funny stuff - one of my favourite lines;
"Edgar put his hands in front of his fly and tried to move away. “Very sorry. I’m wet. I mean, you made me wet.” Nope, not any better. Now, he sounded like a pervert. “You didn’t make me wet.""
See what I mean. Stories like this make me love this even even more. I mean it's amazing and it's free. Win, win. I CANNOT wait to read more from this author. Like really can't wait.
I can't go without mentioning the awesome cover by Natasha Snow. I may have
