Guest Author Lauren Fraser
Welcome Lauren! Why don’t you tell us a little bit about The Geek Next Door.
The Geek Next Door is a really steamy friends to lovers story, which are always a huge favorite of mine. Here’s the blurb
When the woman of your dreams only sees you as her geeky neighbor, sometimes you have to go to extremes.
Computer nerd Dylan Crane has been in love with Erin since she moved next door two years ago. Unfortunately, she’s never seen him as anything other than her best friend--until one afternoon when her world flips upside down and everything changes.
Erin Sharp learns firsthand just how sexy a man with a brain can be. She already loved Dylan, her friend, but as their relationship evolves, she wonders if she could finally have it all.
When her career ambitions get in the way of their relationship, Erin has to decide what matters most to her – getting the job she always wanted, or the man she needs and desires.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I’m a huge fan of shows like Chuck and Big Bang Theory but even though I love the shows I don’t particularly find the characters attractive, so I thought it would be fun to try and write a sexy, nerdy guy. A guy who has a brain, and a sweet side but knows how to be a sexy man in the bedroom. Sort of the best of both worlds. LOL
What draws you to this genre?
I really enjoy writing contemporary erotic romance. I’m a huge sucker for a happy ending and I think sex is a huge part of a loving relationship so it seems natural to write about it when I’m telling the couples story.
Where can your readers learn more about you?

Where can we buy The Geek Next Door?
You can buy it at Liquid Silver Books.
What are you writing now?
I just contracted a story with Ellora’s Cave called Sex, Sin and Surf. It’s an older woman/younger man story that is really hot.
Do you have an excerpt that you’d like to share?
Of course. Here’s an excerpt from The Geek Next Door.
The sound of her name rolling off his tongue, husky and full of need, shot a wave of heat through her body. Dylan’s eyes honed in on her erect nipples. He licked his lips, his nostrils flared. When he raised his gaze back to her face, she gasped at the hot molten look of barely leashed desire on his face.
He wanted her as much as she wanted him. All other thoughts left her mind. She pushed him back into the change room and followed him inside. His erection bulged against her stomach as she pressed her body tightly against his. She threaded her arms around his neck, and placed her lips against his for the first time. Needing to be quiet, she suppressed the whimper that slid through her.
His arms snaked around her waist and his tongue dipped between her lips as he returned her kiss. With a moan, she sucked it into her mouth. Holy cow, the man could kiss.
Strong hands gripped her ass and ground her body against his hard cock. He broke the kiss, his hot tongue sweeping a path down her neck. He bit her earlobe and immediately her pussy throbbed as moisture soaked her panties. She wanted to feel him naked against her.
“How’s it going in there? Did you need different sizes?” A voice called, followed by a knock on the door that had them jumping apart.
Erin stared helplessly at Dylan. Where the hell had that come from? If they hadn’t been interrupted, she would have ripped his clothes off and fucked him right there in the change room of Macy’s. She didn’t do stuff like that.
The woman knocked again. “You all right?” The knowing tone of the saleswoman’s voice made Erin’s cheeks heat with embarrassment. Oh God, the woman totally knew she was in there.
Dylan cleared his throat. “Yep, fine, thanks.”
“Well, you let me know if you need anything else.”
“Will do, thanks.”
When Dylan looked back at her, he had a slight smirk on his face. He stuck his hands in his pockets and pulled the pants away from his erection. “Guess maybe this isn’t the best place for this.” He gestured between the two of them with his hand.
Erin bit her lip between her teeth. What were they doing? When she saw the banked hunger on Dylan’s face, she knew, right or wrong, she wanted to play this thing out. She was hot, wet. And Dylan was the only person who could fix that.
“You okay?” he asked.
“Uh-huh.” She trailed her hand down the front of his shirt. “I don’t know if this is the right outfit, since I can’t seem to keep my hands off you in it, but what do you say we pay for it and find someplace more comfortable to continue this.”
His eyes widened in surprise. “Yeah?” His eyes crinkled up at the corner, pleasure replacing the previous disbelief.
Dylan quickly unbuttoned his shirt. At the first tantalizing glimpse of his bare chest, an arrow of heat shot directly to her pussy. God, she had wanted to run her tongue across his chest since the moment she’d seen it earlier. Now she knew how good a kisser Dylan was, the urge was even stronger.
“I should maybe wait for you outside.” She backed out of the room, closed the door behind her and leaned against it. Wow, Dylan…who knew they’d be that hot together.
