    Sexy dad, best friend done right!

    This is book #2 in the Gamer Girls series and Holly McDonald's story. In book #1, Holly found out her fiance, Lucas, was cheating on her. He was also running a pyramid scheme and now he has been arrested. Holly agreed to fully cooperating with the Feds in exchange for immunity since she had no idea any of this was going on. With having her assets frozen and not being allowed to work in her field of IT for 18 months while she is on probation, Holly is working at Game On!, the local gaming store and living with Gwen's dad, Nathan. It's fun working at Game On, but Holly is having a harder time living with Nathan because she has always had a huge crush on him. So what if he is 15 years older than her....she is still very attracted to him....problem is is that he is her best friend's dad! Nathan Williams has been single for a long time. Being a single dad, Nathan always put his daughter, Gwen first. Now that Gwen is grown she keeps pressuring her dad to date. Too bad Nathan is attracted to Gwen's friend, Holly, but he could never act on that because it's so taboo and what would his daughter think. While everyone is in Mexico for Gwen's wedding, a drunken Holly and a drunken Nathan hookup. They both realize that they are attracted to the other and figure "What happens in Mexico, stays in Mexico!". Too bad that is never the case! When Nathan and Holly spend more time together test playing their friend Shannon's legacy game, parts of the game spill over into real life. It will take a huge leap of faith for these two to decide if they want to go after their happy ending and risk losing Gwen or just decide to keep things platonic. A fun twist to the story throws everyone into a tailspin but in the end, Holly and Nathan get their perfect happy ending. I just loved this story. It was such fun and such a forbidden type of romance but the author handled it wonderfully. I also loved the way the playing of the game was woven into their lives. It sounded like such a fun game to play, too! I really enjoyed both of the characters. It was easy to see how Nathan and Holly were drawn to each other....they had so many things in common. Overall I am really loving this series and can't wait to read Shannon's story!

    Gaming +Love=Winner!

    Thank you Kate Rock Book Tours, Kensington and NetGalley for an advanced copy. I voluntarily reviewed this book. All opinions expressed are my own. Against the Rules Gamer Girls #2 By: Laura Heffernan *REVIEW* Against the Rules is a contemporary fiction romance centered around gaming and is part of a series. I recommend reading the series in order for background information. Although not a gamer myself, I can still appreciate the story. Holly is a gamer who is recovering from a bad breakup that left her emotionally and financially ruined. She has given up on love, and who could blame her at this point? Life has other plans, however, and Holly finds herself attracted to a regular customer in the store where she works. Worse than that, though, is Holly's attraction to Nathan. Why? Holly's best friend is Gwen, and Nathan is Gwen's dad. Yikes! It's an odd love triangle but fun to read. Holly is an interesting character. She's smart but does stupid things. She's a bit naive/oblivious to some obvious things. I wanted to like her more than I actually did because her vibe is positive and warm hearted. Nathan is the hot older, but not too old, guy. He's easy to like because his characterization is spot on, and he's compelling. The secondary characters, i.e. Gwen, etc., are an excellent group whom I would like to hang with sometime. Friendship is on the line. How will Gwen react if Holly dates Nathan? It's a pickle for sure! Overall, I found this story delightful, unique and engaging. I learned some things about gaming. Against the Rules is especially intriguing and appealing if you are actually a gamer!

    Cute and would read more

    I received an ARC complimentary from NetGalley but my opinions are my own!!! This was super cute!! I was really unsure because I’m not a gamer but it was played out really well. The characters are well-developed and interesting. I actually want to go back and read more of the series. I really liked the plot and how the game was used as a timeline of sorts. I just overall really enjoyed it.
