Author: Deanna Wadsworth
Genre: M/M Contemporary

Jason Lewis is a self-proclaimed nerdy guy who hates his red hair. Bullied most of his life, at 22 social situations still make him awkward. On a trip to the World Video Game Expo in Las Vegas, Jason decides to enlist the help of Madame Eve in his failed romantic endeavors. While at the con, he runs into sexy, professional baseball pitcher Blake Huntington, the guy he tutored in high school. Blake invites him to a party and after hanging out with his high school crush, Jason begins to regret booking his 1NS "encounter" later that night. But Madame Eve may have planned the best night ever.

3.5 Stars

What I Loved: I really loved the blurb and thought the idea of this story sounded super fun. I was excited to get the audiobook.

I loved the fact that the MC’s are from Michigan and that Jadon lives in my hometown. It always makes me happy to have a book take place in Michigan or involve characters from there.

What I Liked: Narrator Terrence Leonardo was pretty good and luckily, had a smooth voice that was easy to listen to.

What I Didn’t Like: I felt a little lost at the supposed chemistry between Jason and Blake. I just didn’t believe it or feel it, to be honest. Especially Blake’s attraction to Jason and the way he reacts to seeing him again after 7 years. It was way over the top and a little fake.

If I heard “Hashtag____!” one more time I was going to shatter my Kindle. Once or twice, in the beginning, was fine but after hearing it every few minutes I wanted to scream. It was annoying and overdone and I was cringing every time I heard it.

***Audiobook provided to Bayou Book Junkie by the author/publisher for my listening pleasure in hopes of an unbiased opinion, a review was not a requirement.***

Deanna Wadsworth might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. She has served multiple board positions at her local RWA chapter and is the current President 2017 for Rainbow Romance Writers of America. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and can often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.
