ARC Review ~ Her Perfect Game (Hot & Nerdy #2) by Shannyn Schroeder

Her Perfect Game (Hot & Nerdy, #2)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: October 27th 2014

Publisher: eKensington

Spring break is supposed to be a week of fun in the sun for three childhood friends about to graduate from college. But one of them is ready to get her game on somewhere else…
Charlie Castle is an expert archer and a fierce warrior—in her favorite video game, anyway. But college life was a program she couldn't quite master. To land a cybertech job without a degree, she's entering a "hackfest" over spring break—where she also hopes to meet the sweet gamer who's been flirting with her online. Instead, she runs into the hot guy who walked away years ago, and can't fight the desire that comes rushing back. 

Jonah Best has never gotten over Charlie, whose kisses were always as deliciously creative as her coding. But now that they're face to face again, he doesn't know how to admit that her online admirer is really him—or how to convince her that he's offering her a job for her incredible skills, not her sex appeal. Can Jonah cut through their communication glitches and persuade Charlie that the next level up for them should be forever?

My Opinion

After enjoying the first instalment in this series, I was eager to read about another character from the author's cast. Her Best Shot was a quick, easy, and fun read so I was hoping Her Perfect Game would follow suit. And in essence it did.

Overall, the plot was fun, fast-paced, and interesting. I liked that Charlie wasn't the typical girl you get in romance novels. She was geeky and had an attitude. The hacker element to the book was different and it was a nice change of setting with the role-playing online.

Similarly, I liked the romance as a whole. The general theme behind it was good; it kept me interested as the two of them reconnected and then had to face certain secrets coming out. Because of the short length, I did feel it was all a bit to quick and that Charlie bent to Jonah's will too easily. I would have liked a bit more build up before she jumped into bed with him. As well as that the ending irritated me. It just stopped when I was expecting more. It all felt very rushed and abrupt, leaving me with a few questions an little satisfaction. I wanted more of a natural resolve and proper forgiveness--it all felt too easy.

Saying that though, this was an enjoyable, easy read. It was quick and engaging, I just wanted a little more.
