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 feelings were mixed on going into Her Perfect Game. I enjoyed the first book (Her Best Shot) but it was missing some things that I was afraid would be missing in this one. But, Her Perfect Game didn't disappoint me. I was however sad to find that it was only 112 pages long.
I had an easier time relating to Charlie then I did to Layla. Charlie had financial problems, boy troubles and uses video games to escape reality. For the last two years Charlie has been friends with Win, a boy she met on the game. Only Charlie doesn't know that it is her ex, Jonah who has left her three years earlier with out a word. But when Charlie attends Hackfest, the last person she expected to see was Jonah. But Charlie isn't there for him to have a second chance, she is there to win the prize money and nail a job.
I really have nothing bad to say about Her Perfect Game. Just I wish that it was longer and the reader was able to see into Jonah and Charlie's pasts. I wanted to know Charlie's emotions about Sylvie's death. I wanted to know them more. I liked their characters but there still wasn't enough to love them.
Her Perfect Game can be read before Her Best Shot. Both stories start the exact same way. The three friends on the phone with each other talking about spring break. Which I really liked.
