Status Update (#gaymers Book 1) by Annabeth Albert 4 Stars!
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?
I very much enjoyed Adrain’s and Noah’s romance.
Annabeth Albert has become a reliable sources for very good books!
We have two geeky heroes, dogs, an RV, and road romance.
Each hero has a lot to contend with internally and these reckonings lead to a strong love story. Plus, they are super cute together.
I love watching Noah reconciling being devout with his sexuality. Good stuff.
A sweet (and hot) romance!
