It’s typical of video game programmer Josiah Simmons to be the last one on the plane on the way to the biggest meeting of his career. Though he’s (mostly) coping with his ADHD, he can’t handle another distraction. But he also can’t ignore his rugged seatmate—especially once he learns the military man’s a fan of his game.
Ryan Orson refuses to let his severe injuries pause his career as a navy SEAL. He’s got hours of grueling physical therapy ahead of him, and no time for anything that might get in the way of his return to active duty. But that doesn’t mean he’s above a little first-class flirtation with geeky-cute Josiah.
When a delay strands the pair in St. Louis, they agree to share a hotel room and a night of gaming. Neither expects their new connection to move to the next level in the light of day. Opposites may attract, but is this game over before it’s even begun?
Ooohhhh….Where do I even begin??
First this was my first ever book by Annabeth Albert. I found this little gem on NetGalley and boy howdy am I glad that I did.
First, Ryan and Josiah were all kinds of great. They meet on a flight and have an instant connection. Ryan, a Navy Seal whose all kinds of hot and Josiah, a nerdy gamer who, due to his ADHD basically has no filter. If he thinks it he tends to say it. Ryan is coming off a horrible accident and broken engagement, while Josiah is leading a team at the company he works for, designing and programming video games.
Fate has brought these two together, and even after some verbal diarrhea from Josiah that made me cringe, these two begin to build their friendship which despite Ryan’s objections turns into more, something neither one could have stopped even if they tried.
I really, really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read more from this author!
