I am so in love with this one! I devoured Beta Test in one day and couldn’t be happier. I will say it was a bit similar to the first one in the sense that it has the flashy guy and the uptight guy who go on a road trip and have to confront the judgmental sides of their life in order to be together.

Ravi was a wonderful character that I wish I could know in person because he seems like a lot of fun. I loved how spontaneous he was and how even when he didn’t really like Tristan he still respected his work. Ravi had his hangups about dating a coworker but he muddled his way through them.

Tristan was what I really adored about his book; he was so perfectly cute and awkward. As someone who also loves spreadsheets and organizing things I can totally relate to him and his OCD tendencies. And don’t let the cover blurb fool you, Tristan is definitely a gamer he just doesn’t go all into the world outside of the actual games. Even through Tristan was out he was trying to be very circumspect about his love life due his mother’s political leanings. But even then he still knew what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to go after Ravi. Watching them fall in love, but especially Tristan who didn’t have as much confidence was so sweet and romantic.

Book Details

Brilliant graphic designer Ravi Tandel is ahead of the game—he’s just been asked to present a top secret project at a huge conference in Seattle. All systems are go…until he learns his buttoned-up office nemesis is coming along for the ride.

Tristan Jones isn’t really the gamer type, but he knows the back end of the video game business inside out. Together, he and Ravi will give an awesome presentation. If they survive the cross-country trip first.

Tossed together in close quarters, Ravi’s shocked to see Tristan’s sexy, softer side emerge from such a conservative shell. He’s less shocked to learn his handsome colleague’s prominent family would never support an out-and-proud son. But Ravi didn’t struggle through his own coming out to hide who he is now. To be together, Tristan will have to push past his fear and ultimately decide: Does he want a future with Ravi? Or is it game over before they’ve even begun?
