Review: Not a Game (Friends #1) by Cardeno C.

Not a Game (Friends, #1)
Published July 15th 2016 by The Romance Authors, LLC


An accidental meeting and a misunderstanding lead to a life-altering connection.
A new job, a new city, and hopefully a new life. When chubby gamer Oliver Barnaby receives a job offer from the best boutique game developer in the country, he leaves his family and his less than spectacular existence in Oklahoma without a second’s hesitation. Determined to change more than his career and his geography, Oliver implements a plan to finally land a boyfriend. Step one is improving his skills in the bedroom.
A life that looks perfect on paper, but feels empty in reality. Attractive, successful, charismatic Jaime Snow has a life other people envy. His already booming business is growing. He isn’t lacking in friends. And he has no trouble finding a date. But there’s an emptiness in Jaime’s heart and a hole in his life that only the right man can fill.
An accidental meeting, a misunderstanding, and falling in love. When Oliver and Jaime end up at the same bar at the same time, they each see something they want in the other. Going to bed together that first night is easy. Building the lifetime relationship they both desperately crave will require trust, time, and a little misunderstanding.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Cardeno C. is one of my favorite M/M authors out there. I love how she can make me giggle silly in the middle of a read. This one, well, this had me snorting a bit too. That part where... no, I cannot. You have to read this to experience the shocker of the accidental meeting that kind of came out of nowhere.

Now, this is not your usual sexy alpha man with the hunky-dory body where his head disappears from the breadth of his wide shoulders, pecs bursting out of his tees or arms ripping his sleeves. No. Think the other way around. Think, normal man meets a cuter than normal man and they fall in love. Simple. Madly romantic.

Now, this is just a taste of her new series. Friends. And man, I am already getting impatient which of these friends come up with their own book. The friends, well some of them, are introduced here and it sort of gives us a hint of how romantic and funny their stories are going to be.

As for Oliver and Jaime, could they have been any cuter and cuddly? This is a read that left me hugging my puppy-dog, let me tell you. I had the silliest grin, not to talk about the giggling.

I cannot but tell you, this is yummy delicious guys. Really, just one of the reasons I love CC.
