A June Goodreads Must Read Romance

“Relatable, funny, and charming.”

—Elly Blake, New York Times bestselling author of Frostblood
 
In life, as in gaming, there’s a way around every obstacle . . .
 
To pitch her new role-playing game at a European conference, developer Sierra Reid needs to overcome her terror of public speaking. What better practice than competing in a local bar’s diary slam, regaling an audience with old journal entries about her completely humiliating college crush on gorgeous Tristan Spencer?
 
Until the moderator says, “Next up, Tristan Spencer . . .”
 
Sierra is mortified, but Tristan is flattered. Caught up in memories of her decade-old obsession as they reconnect, Sierra tries to dismiss her growing qualms about him. But it’s not so easy to ignore her deepening friendship with Alfie, the cute, supportive bar owner. She and Alfie were college classmates too, and little by little, Sierra is starting to wonder if she’s been focusing her moves on the wrong target all along, misreading every player’s motivations.
 
Maybe the only winning strategy is to start playing by her heart . . .
 
 
“Relatable, funny, and charming, this gamingesque book delivers laughs and romance in a warm, satisfying bundle.”
