I recieved this as an ARC & just WOW. I totally stepped out of my element with this one as it's not my typical read. I loved the game aspect, love triangle & above all the level up in the end. Phenomenal.

This is just a short review for goodreads to collect my thoughts after finishing this book; if interested I will post a complete review on my bookstagram: JSanders_bookreview

I absolutely loved the gaming aspect to this book, with Sierra trying to "level up" by facing her fears of public speaking. Such a fun read! It made me wish there were more books with developer/gamer heroines.

As Sierra confronts the fears that hold her back in her career, she finds her past intruding in unexpected ways. Her efforts to make sense of her past and win her best future lead her to make gaffes and conquests in equal measure. I rooted hard for her, even as I wanted to scream "nooo" at
