He controls the game, but she’s rewriting all the rules…

Marley Lake is no stranger to awkwardness, but getting caught watching a dirty GIF by the company’s hot new IT guy exceeds even her standards. That is, until she realizes he's as turned on by it as she is. But with a big promotion on the line, she refuses to let her current dry spell be her downfall. Maybe.

Austin Rivers has no business lusting after the irresistible editor of Gamers Magazine. He's a secret partner in the business—and technically Marley’s boss. One look at that GIF, though, and he’s ready to install a whole lot more than just software…as long as she never finds out who he really is.

But reality’s not as virtual as it seems, and when Austin’s identity jeopardizes Marley’s promotion, he has to change his game or risk losing the only woman with the cheat code to his heart.

Kassiah: It all starts when Gamers magazine editor Marley Lakes has an IT problem and DB (Dark and Brooding) comes in to fix it–and discovers that she left her tumblr open with a racy gif covering her screen. DB, otherwise known as self-made millionaire Austin Rivers, can’t help himself when he asks her,

“Do you like that?”

And the pair begin their journey setting restaurants, supply rooms, pretty much everything on fire with their out of this world chemistry.

There’s more to Austin than he lets on, though. He doesn’t actually work in the IT Department; he owns the company. And he knows that if Marley finds out who he really is, it will be over with them. Austin reasons with himself if he can just sell out his half of the company that he was already planning to part with, Marley might understand and realize that the two of them have a future together. But lies of omission are lies all the same. Will Marley be able to trust Austin again when the truth comes out?

This was a fast read and crazy hot, ya’ll. Austin is a steamy, nerdy, gamer. He’s sweet and swoony and makes sure to kiss her a lot (*flail*) A little anti-social, he finds it difficult to trust anyone and likes control in all aspects of his life. Control that Marley needs to give him.

“I want to see both of your hands wile you suck me. Trust me to take care of you.”

Marley’s independent and a work-aholic, but she can’t deny the chemistry between her and Austin. Despite their best efforts not to allow it, they can’t help but fall for each other, and I love that they both allow themselves to be vulnerable with each other.

“Do you sleep naked?” she asked.

He paused, eyes on her, with an intense expression on his face. She opened her mouth to ask him what he was thinking, but then he shook his head, and his face relaxed. He closed the distance to the bed and put a knee to the mattress. He lifted up the comforter, helping her scramble underneath it then sliding in beside her.

“He wrapped an arm around her waist. “I do now.”

::le sigh::

I love the other characters, especially her brother, Chad, and the way he looks out for her but still calls her out.

“Marley, showing interest in a man doesn’t make you weak. It’s not going to make those men think any less of you. And if it does? There are discrimination acts in place for that reason. You’re a gorgeous twenty-seven-year-old woman who works sixty hours a week. You deserve some happiness.”

The progression that the characters make is phenomenal, and I loved the way their pasts wove into the story.

Austin’s cock was hard and aching where it rested at her back, and two of his fingers were sunk deep inside her while she played a video game he developed. He wished he could go back in time and tell his awkward, dorky, thirteen-year-old self to hang in there because life sure as hell got a whole lot better.

I loved this book for lots of reasons. The visuals, the dirty talk–the dirty emails, the authentic feelings, the list goes on and on. If you want a quick, nerdy, hot read with fun characters you’ll fall, then definitely add Changing His Game by Megan Erickson to your list right now.
