It's typical of video game programmer Josiah Simmons to be the last one on the plane on the way to the biggest meeting of his career. Though he's (mostly) coping with his ADHD, he can't handle another distraction. But he also can't ignore his rugged seatmate—especially once he learns the military man's a fan of his game.
Ryan Orson refuses to let his severe injuries pause his career as a navy SEAL. He's got hours of grueling physical therapy ahead of him, and no time for anything that might get in the way of his return to active duty. But that doesn't mean he's above a little first-class flirtation with geeky-cute Josiah.
When a delay strands the pair in St. Louis, they agree to share a hotel room and a night of gaming. Neither expects their new connection to move to the next level in the light of day. Opposites may attract, but is this game over before it's even begun?
5 out of 5 stars
Ryan is broken, both mentally and physically. While serving as a Navy SEAL he received multiple injuries, the worst being the loss of his legs from the knee down. He is very determined in his recovery, but very closed off when it comes to his personal life. Josiah keeps chipping away at the walls that he keeps up, and it isn't long before he gives in.
Josiah is an absolute sweetheart. I think I must really have a soft spot for the awkward ones but this is becoming a trend for me. lol! Josiah has issues with ADHD and also has no filter at all. Whatever he is thinking tends to fall right out of his mouth. He has never had a relationship lasting longer than 3 weeks because he feels as if he gets bored or loses focus.
These two are such opposites but they ended up working really well together. Ryan has a way of calming Josiah and helping him focus. And Josiah certainly doesn't have any issues getting bored with Ryan. Josiah is really good at getting Ryan to open up, but also when to give him space. They have a ton of chemistry together, which makes for a few steamy scenes.
This is the third book in this series but can be read as a standalone. You see the characters from the previous stories, but it's more of a peek every now and then. I have loved all three of the books, and would recommend any of them
