This book was scorching, burn me alive, steamy, dreamy perfection. Megan had me in a constant stage of blushing and giggling…my face was hurting from it all. The relationship between Owen and Chad isn’t easy, it was hard fought and won. I adored Chad, and if I am being honest, I kind of relate to Chad’s journey to finding himself. I love a good character on the patch to self-discovery, sign me up! Owen was sexy and nerdy and after reading this I will never look at bow-ties or polka-dots the same again.
I kind of loved the contrast between Owen and Chad as well, they are complete opposites yet perfect for each other. The intimate moments were one part sex education, one part hot. I won’t lie, there were several moments where I was thinking, “So that’s how that happens?” much to the dismay of my bookish friends. Naive and innocent, table for 1, over here. Also can I get an ‘Amen’ for another supply closet scene…Megan never disappoints!
Chad was actually pretty much exactly as I was expecting. Sometimes his childishness would surprise me, but then I would think about what I know of him, and it would actually fit. I could honestly feel his insecurities, and his fear of living down to the expectations everyone had of him…expectations that he cultivated, but still. It’s hard to break out of that cycle, you know? And I thought we got a great look at that with Chad. I wanted to smack him so many times for the way he lashed out at Owen, but that didn’t mean I didn’t also feel for him and what he was struggling with. I get paralyzed by fear a lot, so I can vibe. I loved his snarky, smart-alecky personality. He may have done a lot of smirking, but it suited him.
I think I got a bit of a different feel to Owen in the first book, but since we barely saw him, it was OK that he was somewhat different than I was expecting. He struggled with his own set of insecurities, worried that his tendancy towards uptightness would prove not enough for Chad. I couldn’t help but kind of wonder what his youth was like, but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of his story. I love that in general he didn’t let Chad walk all over him…for some reason Chad brought out a strength in him he didn’t know he had. I also appreciated that he was struggling with overcoming his own shyness/introvertedness at work, trying to make more of a difference and get the notice he deserved. His introvertedness felt much more authentic and natural compared to Chloe in book 2.
The two of them together were even kind of different than what I was expecting! I didn’t expect them to have an almost adversarial vibe at the beginning. I mean, I guess it’s sort of hinted at in the blurb, but it went on for longer than I expected. You could really feel the opposites part of the opposites attract in this one…and it was interesting to see how they had this strong pull towards each other, but because they were so different, neither of them trusted that there could be more…it really brought out each of their insecurities in full force. I’m not always good with so much push and pull, but it worked for Chad and Owen for some reason. I think because we got to see these moments of hope…these moments of connection that were more. And it doesn’t hurt that they were smoking together.
While this isn’t the last in the series, I read the last one first so it’s *my* last one. And I ended my reading of the Gamers series very satisfied. I felt like the nerdy aspects were well done and not gimicky like they could have been. And I loved that in each book we got a very satisfying epilogue. It was nice to see glimpses of our previous two couples in the background, and I was so happy with the way Owen and Chad’s story resolved. I’m a happy girl.
Chad is a hot, bad boy, who's a bit of a flake, but he's trying to change his ways. Owen is a serious, nerdy, bow-tie-wearing copy editor, who works for Chad's sister. Sparks fly big time when these opposites attract! They seem to have nothing in common, and don't really even like each other, but their sexual chemistry is there in spades! No use fighting, boys! Embrace the sexy time!
I really loved this story and thought that Chad & Owen's characters were so fully fleshed out and relatable. Their issues made sense and didn't seem contrived at all.
I highly recommend this entire series, as well as Megan Erickson's other series, Mechanics of Love! So many amazing, hard won HEAs. You can't go wrong!
And Owen. Oh, O. As outrageous and carefree as was Chad, Owen was...not. Owen has social anxiety. He worries that no one "sees" him. Well, Chad sees the heck out of him. And Chad seems to bring out something in Owen - like explicit PDAs that will melt the Kindle screen! All I can say is, I will never look at a bowtie the same way again!
Bottom line - I just loved this book, Two characters trying to find their way in life, and happen upon each other. They bring out the best in each other, even though they are the epitome of opposites attract. I laughed, I teared up, I cheered...do yourself a favor and pick this up. Brilliantly well done love story.
