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?
I’m still absolutely loving this series. I think what I’m enjoying most is how well developed these characters are. I think I’ve fallen in love with all of them over and over again.
In book 3 of the #gaymers series newly appointed Project Manager at Space Villager, Josiah is leading his first team. On a business flight he is seated next to Navy SEAL, Lt. Ryan Orson. The two hit it off and bond over their love of gaming.
Ryan feels the attraction build for Josiah but recently out of a relationship and rehabbing from injuries he suffered overseas he knows he’s not in a position to start anything. Josiah doesn’t hold any of Ryan’s reservations and wants nothing more than to explore what’s going on between them.
Both Josiah and Ryan have several issues throughout the story. This is an angst filled story and I enjoyed every second of it. These two have to overcome a lot to get to their happy ending.
I really enjoy the crap out of this author. Like I mentioned earlier the way she develops her characters just astounds me. I feel like if Space Villager was a real thing that I could walk right into the office and know everyone personally. She makes them so real and loveable.
This was a fantastic addition to an amazing series. I think this could be read as a standalone but I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t want to read the first 2 books. They have all been fantastic. I really hope there is more to come in this series. Love them!!
