Strong Signal (Cyberlove #1)
by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell
Wow, this book was awesome !!
Two guys meet and connect while being miles and miles apart.
Garret is a gay soldier, currently deployed in Afghanistan and waiting for his tour to end.
Kai is a reclusive “gaymer”, who suffers from social anxiety and panic attacks. He doesn’t leave his apartment anymore and his only “real life” friend is the 17 years old kid, next door. All his other friends are virtual followers of his Twitch stream.
Garret is a closet nerd, who loves to play games on his laptop, such as Fallen World Online, which is what he does, to get through his time in Afghanistan. He’s all excited about playing….until he meets Kai, who kills Garret’s character on the spot and does a little victory dance afterward… :))
Garret is pissed and starts looking into Kai’s profile and looking him up on Google. This is how he stumbles onto Kai’s Twitch stream…..and other video’s of Kai 😉
The two connect and strike up an online friendship which turns into way more. Damn these two were hot on Skype, and Garrett has quite the dirty mouth on him !!
Then the time comes for Garrett to finally come home and he can’t wait to meet Kai in real life. But Kai hasn’t told Garrett all about himself and his anxieties. So when Garrett shows up to surprise him…things don’t really go as planned.The question is…will these two be able to make it in real life and will Kai be able to overcome his problems.
I loved reading about the two of them. They were so cute together…and so so HOT !!
I have been struggling with anxiety myself for over 15 years, so I was so rooting for Kai…he deserved to be happy. He was truly an awesome character. Garrett had a heart of gold and never once judged Kai for being who and how he was.
I can‘t wait for the next book in this series...this was definitely a win for me !!
