2017 Dreamspinner Advent Stocking Stuffer Review: New Game, Start by C.S. Poe

Title: New Game, Start
Author: C.S. Poe
Category: Holiday, Contemporary
Pages: 38
Reclusive medieval scholar, Edgar Royal, has a crush. On a guy. Not a big deal, except that said guy, Walter Chase, is a famous online gamer who has no idea Edgar even exists. Edgar has harbored these feelings for nearly a year, and when Walter announces on Twitter that he’ll be visiting New York City as a guest at the GamerOn convention, Edgar decides he’ll be one of the thousands of fans who responds to the message.
He definitely doesn’t expect to be singled out by the humble, gorgeous, out-and-proud heartthrob. And when it comes to dealing with people, Edgar’s skills are pretty nonexistent. Even with Walter giving all the right signals, Edgar lacks the courage do anything about the mutual attraction growing through their online courtship. He’s always been better with the written word, so maybe the perfect Christmas gift will say what he cannot. But if Edgar can’t get the present to Walter before the convention ends, he may miss out on the boyfriend of a lifetime.

4 Stars!

This was such a sweet read! I loved Edgar and Walter, they were very likable and I loved them together. Their relationship is very instalove on Walter's part, since Edgar was already crushing on him when they 'met' online, but it worked. I would've liked to see more of them together and perhaps a less vague ending, but other than that, it was a great holiday story! Very recommendable!
