This was an enjoyable first book in a new series. Adrian is on the way to his sister's wedding with his new boyfriend and his dog. A fight in an RV park changes everything and Adrian finds himself alone in the snow with the dog and the clothes on his back. Enter shy, reserved, closeted Noah. Noah begrudgingly helps Adrian and the two head off on a road trip. The two men fall for each other but Noah is in the closet as has no intention to change that area of his life. Soon Noah has to make some serious decisions as to what he wants for his life.

This story was well written and flowed well. I enjoyed the first three quarters of the book a great deal. After that though I found myself getting frustrated with Noah and his pity party. Also when he finally decides to make some changes in his life they were very dramatic and didn't not seem realistically done to me. Overall though the parts I enjoyed outweighed the parts I didn't care for. There was a lovely happily ever after in the end and I was pleased with book in general. I will be checking out the next in the series.

Adrian Gottlieb is winning at life. He's a successful video game designer with everything a man could ask for, including a warm comfy ride to Denver and a date for his sister's wedding. But he finds himself in need of a total reboot when he's left stranded at a snowy campground in Utah. Holiday plans? Epic fail.

That is until Noah Walters offers him shelter for the night and a reluctant cross-country ride. Nothing about the ultraconservative geoarchaeologist should attract Adrian, but once he discovers Noah's hidden love for video games, the two connect on a new level. Soon, a quiet but undeniable chemistry sparks.

Something doesn't add up, though. As the miles accumulate and time runs out, Noah must face the most difficult choice of his life. Meanwhile, Adrian must decide whether he's ready to level up. Is their relationship status worth fighting for, or has this game ended before it's even begun?
