Adrian's sister is marrying his ex-boyfriend. He cannot go by himself so in a desperate move he invites his long time online boyfriend to come to the wedding as his date. When they decide to rent an RV and make it a trip, things definitely do not go as planned. His would-be date just up and leaves Adrian stranded at an RV campground with nothing but his dog and what he's got on! Talk about a dirt bag! Noah has been staying at the campground and saw what happened to Adrian. He decides to help by giving him somewhere to stay. The next day, when no other options materialize to get him home, Noah decides to drive him.

I did like how these two were getting to know each other but it was so very sad. Neither one has ever really felt good about themselves. It is very apparent both of these characters have issues. Adrian is openly gay, has a habit of having long distance relationships, and they all end up being losers. Noah is firmly in the closet, has no relationships, and because of his religious upbringing, had remained celibate. Once Adrian uncovered Noah's love for video games, they found some common ground that slowly changes their feelings for each other.

Annabeth Albert does a great job of writing the feelings and attitudes of both characters. I love the double POV because I love understanding why they do what they do. Unfortunately, I just didn't feel any sizzle between the characters. I didn't feel any jaw-dropping chemistry and their sexy scenes just didn't tick the boxes for me.

Is the story one I would recommend? Sure. It is a nice story. I read a lot of M/M romances and I just prefer more fire. Status Update wasn't my cup of tea.

My Review:
Wow, I really loved this book...so much more than I expected to. It was sweet and fun and sexy and I completely fell in love with these two guys who, on the surface, seem like complete opposites. But they work together so well.

All his life, Adrian has been the screw-up of the family. Despite the fact that he's one of the lead designers on one of the most popular video games to ever have been developed, in his family of professionals, he just doesn't measure up. So being abandoned with his dog and no shoes in the middle of an RV park a few days before Thanksgiving and his sister's wedding is just par for the course. He so doesn't want to make that call to have someone come rescue him.

So the person that does rescue him is Noah, a deeply closeted archeology professor from a VERY conservative Christian university in Texas. Noah isn't sure what to do with Adrian either, but he knows he likes the guy...and then they realize just how much they have in common and he offers him a ride home. They just don't realize they're driving into a snowstorm.

These two guys broke my heart. They both know there's simply no way this can work. Noah is sure not willing to give up his career when he's on the cusp of achieving all of his career goals. And there's no way he could come out as gay and keep his job. He signed a moral agreement that says so. Their relationship is destined for failure, but they can have these few days to enjoy one another first. Adrian is incredible about giving Noah his space. This is all new to Noah and Adrian is so careful and cognizant of not pushing him too far too fast. I love that about him.

I was looking through my library for my next book. I kept seeing Status Update and passing it by for some reason. But then I noticed it was Annabeth Albert, and she's always a good read, so I started it. Oh my gosh! I stayed in one spot and read the ENTIRE thing in one sitting. I could not put it down.

Noah is a wonderful character. Some people might think he could not really exist: a closeted man, age 35 with no prior romance experience. But the author gives us glimpses of Noah's upbringing that make this story ring true. Noah observes a dispute in an RV park during which time Adrian's 'boyfriend' abandons him with only the clothes on his back and NO shoes. Noah takes pity and helps Adrian out. The two click and....well, you know.

Noah is a professor at a very conservative college in Texas. Adrian is a programmer in LA. Noah is in the closet and Adrian is out to the degree that he has a super hero with a rainbow cape tatooed on his arm. How is this going to work? It's an emotional journey, totally plausible and well written. I loved it.

Noah and Adrian are a couple of guys that I couldn't imagine being together until I realized that yes, they do have some things in common. Most specifically, a love of video games. I must admit, that THERE was the hook that made me want to read this series as I hadn't really seen it as a theme in the genre yet. And the idea of a staid, stuffy professor that works at an ultra-conservative religious institute reluctantly pairing up with a (on the outside at least) young, happy-go-lucky video game developer sounded interesting.

The setup on this story actually worked for me, more-so because I've been to Utah, Colorado, and Los Angeles, so it became very easy for me to imagine this reluctant road trip. And the fact that Adrian meets the guy who leaves him, minus ALL his belongings: no shoes, wallet, coat - what a jerk! Then you find out Adrian has only JUST met the guy in person on this RV trip, and gets abandoned with his sweet little dog with him, but thought he KNEW this guy, because Adrian is the 'master' of long distance relationships? Good grief. He's been 'dating' the jerk that left him via email for six months. And Adrian's tendency to pick long distance relationships comes up later. That, and the fact he feels like the black sheep in his family of successful doctors and lawyers all give us better picture why Adrian seems to continually self-sabotage himself.

Noah, the professor? Well he's a SERIOUS closet case. And I felt so sad for him because he really had himself convinced he didn't deserve happiness, including the white picket fence, marriage partner, 2.0 kids and a dog.
