“This gamer geek has a lacy little secret.”
Art student and MMORPG addict Robert Ng has always been a loner, but he’s recently made it his goal to make more (IRL) friends. Which is how he winds up working nights at Rear Entrance Video, shilling sketchy porn and blowup dolls as a favor to his roommate. The longer he works there, though, the more he realizes he’ll never be truly happy until he becomes the person he is online: his female persona, Bobby.
Bobby is cuter and funnier than Rob is, and a thousand times more popular with boys. Becoming Bobby IRL presents its own set of challenges, though . . . especially when you’re sitting on the fence between two genders, only one of which has caught the attention of your seriously cute customer/classmate.
Dylan Ford is a six-foot Inuit comic book artist who always says what’s on his mind, and screw anyone who doesn’t like it. As rough as he appears, though, Dylan has a soft spot for Rob. But will out-and-proud Dylan still want Rob if he’s not all man?
This is the first book in the series that I have read, but I do have to say that I was able to follow along quite well.
In this book, I loved how completely different it was from most of the other m/m books that are out there. There is one thing about this book that I don’t want to give away because it’s a really important part of the story, which happens with Rob that I think the fact the author included that made this story stand out completely on its own.
I think by doing that, it was a really smart move on the authors’ part. I kinda had mixed feelings about Dylan, I don’t know what it was about him but I just didn’t get the best vibe from him. But after everything that had happened during the course of the book he did start to grow on me. One thing also that I liked, was the drama that was brought
in when it came to Adam. To me, that was done extremely well because there needed to be something happening that would help Rob with his decision.
There were certain parts that just kinda felt out of place. When it came to Dylan’s sister, I’m not really sure why that was thrown in there, but I do think it added to the story because it explained some about Dylan as well.
The smutty parts of this book were very smutty and fun to read. I think the author did a really good job with those parts as well. They didn’t come off as crude or anything of the sort.
Overall, I did enjoy this book and I can’t wait to read more into the series and find out what happens next!!
