Spring break is supposed to be a week of fun in the sun for three childhood friends about to graduate from college. But one of them is ready to get her game on somewhere else…

Charlie Castle is an expert archer and a fierce warrior—in her favorite video game, anyway. But college life was a program she couldn’t quite master. To land a cybertech job without a degree, she’s entering a “hackfest” over spring break—where she also hopes to meet the sweet gamer who’s been flirting with her online. Instead, she runs into the hot guy who walked away years ago, and can’t fight the desire that comes rushing back.

Jonah Best has never gotten over Charlie, whose kisses were always as deliciously creative as her coding. But now that they’re face to face again, he doesn’t know how to admit that her online admirer is really him—or how to convince her that he’s offering her a job for her incredible skills, not her sex appeal. Can Jonah cut through their communication glitches and persuade Charlie that the next level up for them should be forever?

My Review:

Intro: I love nerdy romances. I am a nerd. A big one. I can geek out about new technology, comics and new games with the best of them. I’m still nerding out about my phone and I’ve had it for a month. And I really love reading about my people.


Heroine: Charlie-I love that she was a computer genius type of nerd. She was brilliant and I loved her. I did really identify with her struggle between the relative safety of the online world and the risk of the real world.

Hero: Jonah-I love that he was a nerd too. Usually, you have one nerd and one not-so nerdy. But he was just as high on the nerd scale as Charlie. And I loved it. I didn’t identify with him as much as I did with Charlie but I still liked him.

Chemistry: I loved them together. I really did. It was a cacophony of nerd. They were so sweet and it was difficult not to like them together. I like how the whole online identity conflict played into their story.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I am usually not a big fan of the novella but this series is perfect for this format. The stories move quickly but give you the full sense of the characters’ stories. You don’t feel as if you are missing something. I am really loving this series and can’t wait for the next one.
