Blog Tour: LEVEL UP by Cathy Yardley [Review + Giveaway]

LevelUp_Banner

Welcome to my tour stop for Level Up by Cathy Yardley. This is a romantic comedy and the tour runs January 4-22 with reviews, interviews, guest posts and excerpts. Check out the tour page for the full schedule. 

LevelUp-CoverAbout the Book:

Geeky introvert Tessa Rodriguez will do whatever it takes to get promoted to video game engineer– including create a fandom-based video game in just three weeks. The only problem is, she can't do it alone. Now, she needs to strong-arm, cajole, and otherwise socialize with her video game coworkers, especially her roommate, Adam, who’s always been strictly business with her. The more they work together, though, the closer they get…

Adam London has always thought of his roomie Tessa as “one of the guys” until he agreed to help her with this crazy project. Now, he’s thinking of her all the time… and certainly as something more than just a roommate! But his last girlfriend broke up with him to follow her ambitions, and he knows that Tessa is obsessed with getting ahead in the video game world. Going from friends to something more is one hell of a challenge. Can Tessa and Adam level up their relationship to love?

Review:

My first favorite read of 2016! (5 Stars)

I'm not as much of a gamer in recent years as I was in my 20's. Two kids, a house to take care of, and a full-time job definitely put a dent in one's game time. But the gaming world remains something I have strong feelings about and it has played a strong role in my own romantic relationship. Thus, I was really excited to read LEVEL UP!

I don't want to call it a perfect geek romance but it's darned close. It hits on everything that the modern nerdy woman could want. From the sexism of the gaming industry and the complication of dating a coworker to fandom and copyright. And I loved that Tessa is latina! It's sexy, funny, and filled with characters that are real enough to not feel like stereotypes. I fell madly in love with these both Adam and Tessa and the secondary characters who played roles in their getting together. I was barely into the book before I had decided I wanted the next book immediately!

If you enjoy fandoms, romance novels, gaming, and pop culture I really think you'll adore LEVEL UP. It has great dialog with plenty of nerd speak, just enough steam to entice romance readers, and opens up a world of possibility for more Fandom Hearts books... and I will be first in line for the preorder!
