This book is VERY disappointing. There is an interesting plot, with some very interesting scenes and GREAT potential. So what happened? Well, maybe it is mislabeled and should be "Young Adult", reader caution advised, for readers under 18 only. So.
The Heroine is written as a "lovable" slob who doesn't clean, who is too busy with her quest for the perfect news story that will bring her fame and fortune to be bothered with things like cleaning up after herself. And in that quest, she is allowed to lie, though if you lie to her she will throw a temper tantrum. She does acknowledge that lying is wrong, and apologizes after she has obtained the benefit of the lie. Yeah, that's really all that matters -- NOT. Possibly the younger crowd would be interested in such a Heroine, but if so, they should not be encouraged to think of her as a Heroine. Moving to the Hero -- in reading the male lead, you get the feeling that he is only there because this is a romance, and there has to be a male involved. He is a gamer and a game designer, so a "nerd", but one who is BUFF. Now why or how he became buff is not disclosed. And he falls for our Heroine while she is intruding into his personal space. The only part of his character that reads true is the isolationism he wants.
There is a "mystery" component of the story which is hardly qualified to be a mystery. The person who did it is the ONLY character without a continuing part in this made for TV sitcom.
Sadly, the book illustrates that CHARACTERS COUNT. No matter how well you imagine a potential story or how many unique ways you set up a scene, if the Characters are immature or self-centered, the book just isn't any good.Read more ›
So just by chance Laura was in the right place right after a murder occurred. A woman dressed like she belongs in the 1940, was found murdered. After some investigation Laura finds that the woman description matches an Internet game called Vegas Noir, which was developed by Mike McQuaid, a video game programming genius.
Asking her big brother Blake Rockford, the CEO of Rockford Security for help, Blake informs Laura that he meet Mike at a party at his penthouse condo. Will Blake be playing matchmaker again? Just read along and follow the story. Laura using her investigating skills soon finds a story she which she could really make a name for herself.
Mike McQuaid is not at all what Laura expected, and trying to stay one step ahead of Detective Troy Atkins, who by the way would like nothing better than getting Laura to pay attention to him, begins to find out who is killing and posing the victims as players in the video game.
Do you know what RPG means? Well don’t feel bad neither did I. It’s Role-playing game; you immerse yourself into the world of the video game and its characters. It’s like having a virtual life. So come along with Laura and Mike and see if you know who the killer is.
To really enjoy this series please read in order.
I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a well written mystery that keeps you guessing.

5/5 Thrilling Stars! Laura is a reporter working on her first big story, which is a string of murders that are based on a video game. Mike is the creator of the game and the two have an undeniable chemistry. What will happen between the two and who is the murder? The story kept me on the edge of my seat with all the twists and turns, I therefore could not put it down. The story is told from both points of view and I loved the characters. This book is the second book of the Rockford Security Series but can be read as a stand-alone novel. I will be looking for more books by Lee Anne Jones! Highly recommend!!
I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Annamaria for Alpha Book Club.
