Gaming for Keeps

Gaming for Keeps - Seleste deLaney This was really refreshing since I have never read a contemporary romance set in the online video gaming world. I’m not a gamer so I’m not familiar with this popular world. I’m sure if I was, I would really have enjoyed the sly details of these games, avatars, guilds, etc….I’m sure I’m leaving out more lingo. I appreciate that the terminology wasn’t over bearing though so I wasn’t confused. I was still able to follow along and watch these two characters navigate their way around the gaming talk.The romance was fun. When Pen and Cal meet, they don’t realize who the other person is. They immediately have an instant spark of attraction and it sizzles up quick. The sexiness was nice and I felt the connection screaming off the page. I really liked watching these two bond in real life just as much as they did online. I would have liked for them to have known each other’s real identity sooner but the execution of the reveal was done nicely.Overall, this was a really fun, quick, sexy, light novella. I finished it in a couple of hours and it was just what I needed to escape from my real life for a while. There is slight suspense as well since Cal is a secret agent and it kept me entertained. I’m sure fans of contemporary romance will enjoy this. *ARC received from Entangled Publishing via Netgalley
