#gaymers, #2

I really enjoyed this road trip story. Rafi and Tristan work for a gaming company and are on their way to a convention to showcase their agency's newest game. The two men are complete opposites and do not really care for each other. They're only doing the trip together because work has given them no choice. As the head across the state and the mishaps pile up, they come to the realization that their differences are the things that make them each unique and they actually become the things that attract them to each other.

I adored these two characters. They were really well written and I found them totally engaging. I liked how their romance slowly unfolded and the fact that there was no insta-love. The story felt realistic and I could see these two ending up together in real life. There was a bit of everything in story. Some serious moments, some funny ones, some sweet one and some sexy ones.

I've read almost all of this author's other books and this one turned out to be my favorite. I thought it was really good. This is the second in a series but is fine to be read as a standalone. I definitely recommend this one.

Player vs. Player. Fight!

Brilliant (if he does say so himself) graphic designer Ravi Tandel is ahead of the game—he's just been asked to present a top secret project at a huge conference in Seattle. All systems are go...until he learns his buttoned-up office nemesis is coming along for the ride.

Tristan Jones isn't really the gamer type, but he knows the back end of the video game business inside out. Together, he and Ravi will give an awesome presentation. If they survive the cross-country trip first.

Tossed together in close quarters, Ravi's shocked to see Tristan's sexy, softer side emerge from such a conservative shell. He's less shocked to learn his handsome colleague's prominent family would never support an out-and-proud son. But Ravi didn't struggle through his own coming out to hide who he is now. To be together, Tristan will have to push past his fear and ultimately decide: Does he want a future with Ravi? Or is it game over before they've even begun?
