Navy SEAL meets gamer geek in this opposites-attract, forced proximity romance from bestselling author Annabeth Albert
It’s typical of video game programmer Josiah Simmons to be the last one on the plane on the way to the biggest meeting of his career. Though he’s (mostly) coping with his ADHD, he can’t handle another distraction. But he also can’t ignore his rugged seatmate—especially once he learns the military man’s a fan of his game.
Ryan Orson refuses to let his severe injuries pause his career as a navy SEAL. He’s got hours of grueling physical therapy ahead of him, and no time for anything that might get in the way of his return to active duty. But that doesn’t mean he’s above a little first-class flirtation with geeky-cute Josiah.
When a delay strands the pair in St. Louis, they agree to share a hotel room and a night of gaming. Neither expects their new connection to move to the next level in the light of day. Opposites may attract, but is this game over before it’s even begun?

1st Class flight Seat-mates interrupted in their "Connection Error" destination
A 'mature' - lonely and battle fatigued, but very alert and optimistic - Twenty-nine year old 1st LT. Ryan Orson is a victim of his team's botched Seal combat mission loosing both of his lower legs and feet, on his way to DC for knee surgery and rehab at Walter Reed Hospital. Twenty-three year 'young' cute hyper-energetic Video game programmer bound for Germany coordinating his company's seminar, Josiah Simmons takes his First-Class assigned seat discovering a gorgeous well built handsome Navy Seal seated next to him. Their flight destination interrupted by a terrible North-Eastern snow storm deposits them in the St. Louis air terminal - where Ryan, maneuvering in his wheel chair toward the baggage claim, stumbles upon his brief encountered seat-mate, forlorn JOSIAH, among fellow passengers leaning against a waiting area corridor - inviting Josiah - "TO SHARE HIS OVERNIGHT HOTEL-ROOM!" - TWO - really "alive" people you will want to be together.
Each book chapter is like opening a valentine envelope.
I want these two wonderful interesting guys to connect and fulfill their love connection and destination! Afraid, devided by distance, communicating via Skype, eMail, game-board competition, their mail message encounter - just has to unite their spirits, to recognize their life together - ultimately to admit to each other - "I love you."
Game and match
This is the 3rd book in the Gaymers series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment & understanding, I recommend reading the series in order.
Josiah rushes to get on a plane that is taking him to the biggest opportunity of his career so far. There he meets Ryan, who also loves the game Josiah is making happen. When Ryan's secrets come out, will they still be friends? Can they be more?
Ryan is afraid to tell Josiah about his injury. Most times it stirs anger, or too many questions. His attraction to Josiah is strong, and it seems to be mutual. Josiah has never been so attracted to someone so fast. Is there a place to meet in the middle?
I absolutely love this series! I also love this book. The characters are so real to me.... the story is really so sweet and sexy at the same time. This author never disappoints! I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
