Marley Lake is no stranger to awkwardness, but getting caught watching a dirty GIF by the company’s hot new IT guy exceeds even her standards. That is, until she realizes he's as turned on by it as she is. But with a big promotion on the line, she refuses to let her current dry spell be her downfall. Maybe.
Austin Rivers has no business lusting after the irresistible editor of Gamers Magazine. He's a secret partner in the business—and technically Marley’s boss. One look at that GIF, though, and he’s ready to install a whole lot more than just software…as long as she never finds out who he really is.
But reality’s not as virtual as it seems, and when Austin’s identity jeopardizes Marley’s promotion, he has to change his game or risk losing the only woman with the cheat code to his heart.

I received an advanced readers copy of this book from the Entangled Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
Marley and Austin meet when Austin comes to fix her computer at Gamers Magazine where Marley is hard working, ambitious and serious about her career. She thinks he's the IT guy and even though he is the silent owner of the magazine, he does nothing to correct it. When he sees the dirty GIF on her computer depicting the type of scene he desires and realises she does too, there is instant attraction and chemistry.
Enough of the plot...this all happens at the beginning and gives you a fair idea of where things are headed. If you guessed a story full of half truths, lies of omission along with some sexy/dirty action involving dirty mouths, movie theatres and video games you would be correct. There is plenty of heat to be found within the pages of this book and some unusual and unique areas and or ways that it occurs. The story moves quickly and it can easily be finished in a day providing you have the time. I liked the fact that it moved quickly because it didn't become monotonous and it stayed fresh. I find a lot of books that have a lot of sex in them get repetitive after a while but this one did not and moved along nicely.
I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book and I loved the relationship between Marley and her brother. There were quite a few laugh out loud moments when they were together. I found myself on numerous occasions trying to figure out who the next book will be about as this was the first book in the new Gamers series.
I will be keeping my eyes open for the next instalment in this series and for more from this author. I am not a gamer in any sense of the word but it did not impact my enjoyment of the book at all.
