He’s got everything but game….
William Drake is an artistic genius with a photographic memory and the intensity to master practically any task. Oh, and he owns a chunk of a billion-dollar gaming company. A twenty-six year-old guy with his wealth, talent, and good looks shouldn’t have problems winning over women. Except he does. To be exact—and detail-obsessed William is always exact—he’s got problems with Jenna Kovac, the troubled beauty who has his heart working overtime and his tongue tied in knots.
And she can’t afford to lose.
Jenna Kovac is a survivor. When war ripped her world apart, she lost her family, her homeland, and her one true love. She’s made a new life for herself in the US, but she’s learned that nothing is permanent, and some nights it’s not even safe to dream. When a scumbag sells her future out from under her, suddenly the only man who can get it back is William Drake, geeky—but scorching-hot—social disaster. William must learn to stay cool under pressure for the all-important duel he’s about to fight. Unless she can teach him to loosen up, she’ll lose everything. Again.
But Jenna’s got a few things to learn from this irresistibly enigmatic man. As they spend time together, they’re soon exchanging long, slow kisses—and painful secrets. There’s so much more to William.
Something that might be worth taking one more risk…
I absolutely adore William. And Jenna seems to be his perfect match because they are so opposite. William has autism (which is something I have some experience in) and I think he is very well portrayed within this book. Yes, he has issues but these should not and do not hold him back. He knows what he wants and he will fight, literally, to get it. What he wants is Jenna. Jenna is very much a free-spirit and although she is attracted to William she has issues with her own past.
I love the Medieval re-enactments. The whole concept is brilliant and I can just imagine William in his armour, with sword and shield in hand. Reading about William – I will use his full name as only family can call him Liam and only Jenna can call him Will – as he struggles to understand his own feelings and overcome obstacles just made me want to wrap my arms around him and give him a big hug, but I know he wouldn’t like that. It was a very emotional roller-coaster ride for the characters and the reader (me).
So glad that William got his own story and what a lovely story it is.
I think this bunch of characters will stay with me for a very long time.
