    1. Written March 17, 20152 1/2 Stars - Geeky cute, perky MC's, fluffy sweet.Technically Dating is a shortie M/M. I picked up this novella (2:30 hrs), narrated by John-Paul Barrel, to listening to when I took a walk today. What!?!? — A bad audiobook day?I'm sure I should had loved this romance when I was a young romantic reader at 15 or so (and been shocked by those very steamy gay bedroom scenes), but all these years later I don't know? I'm probably just too much of an old 'bitch, a bit easy bore [...]

    2. 3.5 starsVery easy and sweet novella with two lovable MCs: Bruce, the tech and Wolverine geek who straightens his curly hair and wears eyeliner when he ventures into clubs so he can look more hip, and Westley, a concierge at an L.A. hotel who likes to play and is very disappointed to pass up a hot night with the cutie he meets at the club. Little does Wes know that said cutie is staying at his hotel, and that when Wes sees him again Bruce will be wearing a Wolverine tie, no eyeliner in sight. I [...]

    3. This was a nice, sweet story. Really easy reading with a nice happy ending. This little quote will give you an idea of how the plot developed."And next time, just talk, okay? Save yourself all this trouble. It's not fucking rocket science."Don't you find yourself shouting this at the characters in the book you are reading all the time?3.5 stars

    4. 3.75*One night at the club Westley meets a hot and sexy Bruce. They are all ready to get to know each other better but things get in the way and it looks like it just wasn’t meant to be.Well, of course they do meet again and in the light of day, the self assured and sexy Bruce turns in to a hot comic book loving yet self doubting computer geek. Bruce is an interesting character, he literally goes from eyeliner wearing, hair straightening sex- on-a-stick hottie to wolverine-tie-wearing, cartoon [...]

    5. I liked it, the characters and the writing even as I wasn't thrilled with the misunderstanding. Bruce needed to grovel more, cause come on! But it was sweet and ultimately happy.

    6. Vacation is over and I’m knee deep in unpacking, getting the house in order before tomorrow’s celebration of Cinco de Mayo and resuming two a days. As a result I needed a book I could listen to via audible. This book is not my usual cup of tea. First off it’s really a sweet, more leaning towards romantic then erotic. I knew that going in so it won’t lose any stars for that because the blurb and genre was accurately described. I thought the narrator did a great job switching the voices up [...]

    7. If it wasn't for the silly misunderstanding I would have rated this story higher. Still, it was a very sweet and lovely plot.

    8. 2.5This could have been great, BUT some character traits I wasn't sold on (some cliche bullshit that was a bit too much even for me- and I'm not usually bothered by cliche things) AND some failings at adult communication made the reading experience not that pleasurable. Also there was some weird time management thing (?) Cause the time jumps kept happening without an obvious reason. Also there was some weird pov change that served no apparent purpose. It was more of a mess than I could stand. I' [...]

    9. Bruce meets Westley on the dance floor one night while on a business trip. Because he’s naturally very shy, he puts on a persona that allows himself to be “free” and allows him to hook up where normally he’d be too reticent.Though the hook-up was fantastic, he gets called away before numbers can be exchanged and both he and Westley are saddened by this. Luckily they end up meeting again at Westley’s job.What comes next is a rocky friends-with-benefits-relationship that morphs into some [...]

    10. 3.5 stars, rounded down, because still doesn't have half stars.Cute, sweet, fluffy short about a nerdy, Wolverine-loving IT guy, who straightens his curls and wears eye-liner to clubs to be more desirable, meeting a hot, sexy guy at a bar near the hotel where he's staying for a convention/meeting. Hot, sexy guy and IT guy get interrupted before having sexy times, but fear not - hot, sexy guy is the concierge at the hotel where IT guy is staying. Confronted with the fact that the Techie wearing [...]

    11. This is a cute story with nice characters. I listened to the audiobook version of this novellaand must admit that it did not completely work for me. Some of the character voices sounded weird to me, the recording quality was not as high as I am used from other audiobooks and sometimes it was hard to catch the change of POVs. The narrator doesn't do a bad job and narrations are very subjective, but it just wasn't for me. I think I might have enjoyed the story more if I had read the book (even tho [...]

    12. Very cute story about a nerdy comic-book loving IT guy, Bruce, and the hotel Concierge, Westley, he meets at a night out at a club in LA. Turns out he's staying Westley's hotel :) Westley is really attracted to Bruce, but Bruce thinks that once Westley sees how he really is that he won't want to see him. He is wrong :)They begin a weekend thing with Bruce driving up from San Diego and things are going great. Then there is a misunderstanding that results in Bruce calling it quits with Westley. Lu [...]

    13. I have mixed feelings about this one. I liked how the story started, even liked the MC's and how they adorably meshed together. Unfortunately, when the 'big misunderstanding' came about, instead of helping the plot move along in the right direction, it put a damper on things and caused the story to lose some of its momentum. The wrap up was much too quick, and I felt that Wesley deserved some serious begging and pleading from Bruce (who was forgiven way too easily for being an idiot). In the end [...]

    14. Have you ever wanted a book to read that you didn't need to think too hard about. Well I was happy to get just that from this quick. A geek who really has no dating confidence has awkward encounters with a concierge. Of course there's a misunderstanding, a gay best friend and a pretty cool family. Technically Dating was what I wanted at that moment.

    15. Enjoyed this novella VERY MUCH!! Who doesn't love comic book geeks, and sweet love stories?? Good, good stuff. <3 SEE MY FULL REVIEW at The Novel Approach! thenovelapproachreviews/20

    16. Sometimes a short book doesn’t quite cut it…you don’t have a chance to get to know the characters, there isn’t enough story, it’s often unbelievable, or insta-love that doesn’t always work…but, Jena Wade’s Technically Dating didn’t fall into any of these traps. This was 94 pages of very likeable characters and a super cute story that left me wanting more in a good way.I really enjoyed the set-up in this book. In the opening scene, Westley has gone to a club looking for “Mr. R [...]

    17. 2.5/5 stars Bruce Collins is a computer geek that wears Wolverine ties by day, and an eyeliner wearing, sexy, seductive guy by night. He meets Westley at a hotspot gay bar and the two really hit it off. Sadly, life gets in the way and what they want to be a very fun night gets cut way too short. Then the next day Bruce sees Westley at the hotel he is staying at in town for a business conference he’s attending, working at the hotel. Can you say awkward?Bruce bends over backwards to get Westley [...]

    19. Bruce is a pretty shy geek running a training for the company he works for at an out of town hotel. Westley is the good looking concierge at that hotel and is assigned to assist Bruce for the training. When they meet at the hotel they realize that they nearly hooked up the night before at a club. Westley is surprised at how different Bruce is out of the club, but still interested in him. Bruce is surprised that someone as good looking as Westley would be interested in plain old him, but he’s s [...]

    20. A Joyfully Jay review. 4.75 starsI really liked Bruce, a one night stand kind of guy, not by choice, who has self-esteem issues until he dons his leather pants and tight shirt and becomes a different person at the clubs, while in the rest of life he is passive and insecure. Westley, on the other hand, is more assertive and willing to go for what he wants, and whether it be men or work, there is no insecurity in Westley’s world.So what could possibly go wrong, you might ask? Ah, the joys of mis [...]

    21. I didn't quite see how Brett transformed himself from the shy nerd that he is into the leather-clad club-goer Westley met. Then again, Bruce wasn't ever going to see those club people again, so he could be someone else for the night.I was so pleased with Bruce when he stood up for himself against Ian. That jerk.And Westley at the comic book store. What dedication!I was glad that they could resolve the misunderstanding and have a HEA. I just talked myself from 4 up to 5 stars.

    22. This was cute and fluffy and fun though I not sure I would recommend the audiobook. I struggled listening to this guy. It wasn't the voices of the characters - those were good - it was the way he did the narration outside the spoken dialogue that just felt really flat and kind of nasally. It's a fun novella (I easily listened to it in a day mostly in the car) so it was worth it but I would say listen to a sample before you decide.

    23. I was looking forward to this novella from a new to me author, Jenna Wade. I have a soft spot for geeky main characters. Maybe it is because I can relate, to an extent, maybe it is just the idea of a guy in glasses and a comic book shirt. Either way, I fell in love with Bruce from the beginning.Find my full review on Prism Book Alliance prismbookalliance/?pos

    24. Simple, unrealistic characters and the big misunderstanding plot = not for me.The second star is for the delightful execution of (view spoiler)[them running into each other after their night was interrupted. (hide spoiler)] Very sweet. Favorite Quote: "And next time, just talk, okay? Save yourself all this trouble. It's not fucking rocket science."

    25. Sweet and quite simple story with the big misunderstanding trope at the last third. Overall, enjoyable, although I didn't love the narrator, he didn't add anything to the story. I hated the constant use of the word geek - yes we got it from the first time that Bruce was a geek!

    26. This was a cute read. I enjoyed both the MC's and the story for the most part. I would have liked it so much more, but the "misunderstanding" between the two that caused all of the problems was just so childish and unbelievable it kept the book from being great for me.

    27. I really dislike novellas with an idiotic twisted misunderstanding, which leads to bad decisions and breaking up for no good reason. I mean would it be to hard to simply ask about the phone call? I mean really, is it so hard to communicate?

    28. Westley grazed the nape of Bruce's neck with the back of his fingers. "That sounds nice." He smiled, and his eyes sparked with mischief. " Plus I'm dying to see if you have X-Men bed sheets."♡♡This was such a sweet little read (:
