REVIEW - End Game - Lisa Swallow




TITLE - End Game


AUTHOR - Lisa Swallow







BLURB:


He’s my knight in shining armour, but not the romantic kind a girl dreams about. This one invaded my online world and threw everything into chaos.

My sorcerer can kick his ass in the game, but real life kicks mine. Gaining experience points online is easier than in reality, and when I play, I know where my quests lead. In the real world, the storylines confuse me, and I don’t know which direction I’m heading in.

In the game, I’m in control.

Or I was until he arrived.

This guy never shares anything about himself, and I only know him as 'Thorsday'. My Aussie gaming nemesis can't be a blond haired, blue-eyed god in reality.

Can he?

There’s something about this enigmatic man that intrigues me, and the more we play together, the bigger my desire to meet him. And I know he feels the same.

The problem is, if I allow my game world to merge with reality, I could die standing in the fire.

Romance meets LitRPG in this romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lisa Swallow. If you think geek heroes can't be hot... think again!


REVIEW:



At last! Something different has finally found it's way into the romance genre. 
I badly needed something new and exciting to come along, and this was perfect! If you are bored of reading the same stories, tropes and cliches then this is something refreshing and exciting for you!! 

So, before you read what type of book this is, and run away thinking it's not for you. Hold on! Yes, it's a gamer romance, and you may think you don't either like games, or understand game jargon, but don't worry, this isn't the sort of book that will confuse or bore you. It is a perfect blend of plot, romance, chemistry, incredible writing and it just so happens that the new element of gaming is mixed in with the story. 

Evie loves her escapism, she plays her games to switch off from her routine days of work and the constant people who she would like to blast a few times with magic, to get rid of. Especially gorgeous idiots that she ends up with after a drunken night, trying to go out and do normal stuff. She comes home and switches off by logging on to play with her friends, nothing unusual there. That is until someone new ends up playing with them one night, and it sparks a need to move from pixels to real life. 

This book has so much going for it. All the things that you love to see in your everyday romance stories, plus so many added extras. I went from sitting on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen next, to practically wetting myself at the hilarious moments that could only happen online. The chemistry is crazy once it moves from the screens to meeting up. And from there you have all the normal romance ups and downs, but with added extras. This is what makes this story so fun and intriguing. You don't just get romance, you get so much more!! Plus did I mention lead character Thor??? Uhh he is named like that because of who he looks like, and wow the visual you get on him is hot!

Plenty of action, drama, laugh-out-loud moments, excitement, nervous moments and of course swoon worthy romance, and heat!! You need to read this book, it will soon have you wanting to sign up to the first game you can find online!! 5 huge stars!
