Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale.

Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom. Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.

That’s what HE said Thursday is a weekly (or monthly) meme created and hosted by Chapter Break where you can share a favorite quote(s) from your current or favorite book boyfriend to his heroine.

This week I am sharing one of my favorite lines (and there are many so far) from my current book boyfriend, Darien Freeman, Prince Charming or rather Federation Prince Carmindor, in a fun and humorous take on the classic fairy-tale of Cinderella in Ashley Poston’s Geekerella that released on April 4, 2017!

I am so far loving this book and can’t stop from smiling every time Darien and Elle text.  Here’s one of their messages from the book.  Enjoy!

Darien Freeman (Carmindor) to Elle Wittimer

Carmindor 6:41 AM
–Ugh, there’s nothing good about this morning.
–And we both know that I don’t know anything.

6:42 AM
–So I’m not in CLE-0’s files?
–Man I feel left out, Carmindor…

Carmindor 6:42 AM
–OR you’re too important to be in her systems.
–You might be classified.

“Look to the stars. Aim. Ignite.”  – Geekerella, Ashley Poston

6:43 AM
–Alas! You found my secret.
–I am much too important for your trivialness!
–You shall address me as Your Supreme Intergalactic Empress.

Carmindor 6:44 AM
–So you’re a girl.
–Sorry that came out weird.
–It’s an observation. Casual-like.
–You’re a girl.
–Argh. I’m digging my self a hole, aren’t I?

6:45 AM
— Yes, yes you are.
