Can the gamer keep the girl?
Gia is living the dream with an amazing career and wonderful friends. Her life is on the right track, until a tall, broody blast-from-the-past breezes back into her life, sending her into a tailspin. She never forgot about Simon—her first love—or the way she cut him from her life all those years ago. Now, she doesn’t know what to do.
Simon never forgot the girl next door, or how she broke his heart when she left without even a goodbye. Thankfully, life as a professional gamer keeps his mind off his broken heart. That is, until he suddenly finds himself back in her path. Now he’s pushing her boundaries and testing her limits.
Simon and Gia have to find a way to coexist. They started as friends, and maybe it’s time to go back to the beginning. Only, this time around, being ‘just friends’ doesn’t seem to be enough. Simon has doubts, and Gia has secrets. Will they be able to let go of the past that hurt them both or will history repeat itself?
** This book can be read and understood as a standalone, but does contain minor spoilers for Level Me Up, book one in the series. **
Joe and Rachel were kind of exhausting. Their story itself was cute, but they all seemed like they were very immature, in their early twenties rather than actual adults.
My biggest problem with the story was that, at times, there was an insane amount of detail for random things. It just felt out of place and I would go back to make sure I hadn’t skipped a page or two. I liked the story, but I just wanted it to be so much more.
