Level Up by Annabeth Albert 3*
BLURB: Landon can’t believe he’s let himself get roped into participating in a charity calendar, let alone one that features tastefully photographed nudes. The genius physicist is hardly model material, and he’s dreading the nude part of the photoshoot. Amid his reluctance, the one bright spot is his emails back and forth with the photographer.
However, Bailey turns out to be not exactly what Landon expects, and their first meeting is decidedly awkward. Bailey’s persistent though, and gradually Landon warms to the burly photographer, and they discover they have a shared love of gamer culture.
A tentative friendship is born, but the road from friends to lovers isn’t easy. Landon’s battling past trauma and must decide how much of a risk he’s willing to take. A sexy connection may not be enough to keep them together unless both are willing to put their hearts on the line.
My Review: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. Short, sweet, and much to abrupt an end. Don't get me wrong, it was not a cliffhanger ending but, it did seem as if it could have had a lot more story to it than the suddenness that finished the book gave me. I honestly can't think of anything else to say about it that won't be spoiler-ish so I'll just add that if you like low angst and sweet romances then this one is for you. Just be warned it is a slow but short read that has an ending that might not be what you expected.
