Not too long ago, in a town that, depending on your current location, is either not super far or actually quite close…

It is a time of chaotic hormones.
Two nerdy gents home for winter break have discovered a female gamer at a midnight release.

During the break, the gamer trio manages to reveal the game’s secret boss, a hidden enemy with enough power to destroy anything in its path.

Pursued by other gamers who want to be the first to beat this boss, George and Katie race to level up, and, in so doing, restore decency and sexual activity to their personal galaxy…

{My Thoughts} – Where do I start? Should I start at the end? I’m not sure. Katie and George meet at the midnight release of a new game. This whole book is based on that game and how it is entwined in their lives, however, aside from the game being a main part of the book so is their blossoming relationship.

This book was exceptionally well written. The banter between the characters is so well written you may want to re-read some of the lines to make sure you read what you read. You will undoubtedly laugh throughout the entire book. I don’t think a book has ever made me laugh so much before which makes this book so awesome.

This book if I had a rating of more then 5 Giraffes would be really high up there. It is everything that I have been wanting to read in a book and more. It is about the geeky side of life, the gaming side of life, and the romance side of life all rolled together into a book. It’s interesting because when I first met my husband he introduced me to an MMO called EverQuest. That game helped to bring him and I closer. This book sort of reminds me of him and I.

I love the references of Zelda in this book. I am a Zelda fan and those were not lost on me one bit. I didn’t quite follow many of the other references though because I have not heard of or played some of the games. But alas that did not matter because it was so well written it just didn’t matter, it all blended together perfectly, wonderfully and magnificently well.

I didn’t want this book to end. Once I started reading it I got to Level 5 and I had to put it down, then I paced myself. I didn’t want to finish the book. I wanted this book to last forever. I know books end and new ones are written but I have to say this one really needs a sequel like the second the first one ended. I have never dealt with a book hangover like this before and I want more. I want much more.

This is by far the best book I have read in 2013. It is my number one favorite book for the year. I have read a ton of books this year and this is my favorite which is pure awesome sauce! :}
