Review: Can You Not? (Geek Actually #1.6) by Cecilia Tan

Another week another episode of Geek Actually! Each week I find myself more and more excited for Wednesdays! Have you ever read a serial release?

I can’t recommend this weekly serial enough so go forth and check out the first episode free and decide for yourself! New episodes every Wednesday and weekly mini-reviews every Tuesday (almost – sorry I’m late, dumb migraines)!


Can You Not? (Geek Actually #1.6) by Cecilia Tan

Category: Adult, Contemporary
Purchase: SerialBox

Meet your new best girlfriends. Michelle is a hard-nosed Science Fiction editor who is used to things going her way; Taneesha is a talented video game programmer who is used to being the odd (wo)man out. Aditi is a fantasy writer on the verge of her big break; Christina is a rebel on the sidelines of Hollywood. And Elli is a fan – of anything and everything that keeps are from “proper adulting.” Together they are Rebel Scum (at least in their shared group chat), and best friends through thick and thin. They might live far apart but through the power of the internet and a shared love of all things geek, they are ready to face the world side by side.

This is the 6th episode in the first season of Geek Actually, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by Cecilia Tan.

Every lady geek has heard about other lady geeks being harassed, but Taneesha never thought it would happen to her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when the coworker she beat at Warcraft makes his beef with her public online. Michelle finds some like-minded people at a kinky party…but realizes that she’s still figuring out what turns her on and what definitely turns her off.



Well, that was one hell of an episode. We all knew the shit was going to hit the fan after the last episode titled “Beware of Rage Bait.” But I wasn’t prepared at all. This episode definitely is heavy on Michelle & Taneesha, so expect this weeks ep to be more Christina & Elli.

I am so worried for Taneesha. I hate that HR did nothing, but she really didn’t sell out her coworker (maybe he is even her supervisor?). Ugh, I hope she decides she needs to pick up and take her talented ass somewhere that will appreciate her! Seriously, can the internet just not…

Michelle heads off to a party…a BDSM party, if you couldn’t tell from the cover graphic. And well she finally gets a real idea of how different other people’s kinks can be. She might think she’s a sub, but the other dom ladies might just have her pegged as a dom, and I might think they are right. With her personality so far, I just can’t see her being submissive at all.

If you want to know what happens, you should read this series!
