Book Review – Status Update



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 enjoyed this story ( I know, I say that a lot 😉 ).

Cons –

The opening chapter is a bit odd. The first meeting between Noah and Adrian was a bit confusing, I expected a very different beginning based on the blurb and also I expected the POV to start with Adrian, but I got past that pretty quickly.

They jump into bed really quickly considering Noah has never been with anyone before. Personally, I prefer relationships to develop over the course of weeks, rather than hours/days, but the premise of this story is that they are stuck in an RV together, so that’s what we get.

Pros –

Cute puppies! I love animals, and I love that these two couldn’t have more opposite type of dogs.

They characters were likable. Adrian was patient with Noah and they were adorable talking about video games.

Bottom Line: I will stay tuned for the next book. I wasn’t 100% satisfied with this ending and I want to see where the characters end up.
