He controls the game, but she’s rewriting all the rules…
Marley Lake is no stranger to awkwardness, but getting caught watching a dirty GIF by the company’s hot new IT guy exceeds even her standards. That is, until she realizes he's as turned on by it as she is. But with a big promotion on the line, she refuses to let her current dry spell be her downfall. Maybe.
Austin Rivers has no business lusting after the irresistible editor of Gamers Magazine. He's a secret partner in the business—and technically Marley’s boss. One look at that GIF, though, and he’s ready to install a whole lot more than just software…as long as she never finds out who he really is.
But reality’s not as virtual as it seems, and when Austin’s identity jeopardizes Marley’s promotion, he has to change his game or risk losing the only woman with the cheat code to his heart.
I wanted this book so bad because I loved the thought of this nerdy kind of love happening between Marley and the new IT guy…and the fact that she gets caught watching a dirty GIF (It’s just funny!)
While there were a lot of things that I like about this book; for instance, Marly was a great character, her brother was hilarious, and Austin’s relationship with his best friends daughter – they were all great. But then there were things that kind of threw me off. And that was basically the relationship that Marley and Austin had. Austin seemed so cold and Marley was so friendly that they just seemed like an off pair. Yeah, Marley got Austin to laugh a little while they were together but he always seemed so uptight.
It was hard for me to see a relationship for them. I felt that there was no connection.
