Book Review: Critical Hit-On

Title Critical Hit-On

Author Deanna Dee

Release Date February 25, 2015

Roll for attraction.

Molly Moreau used to be a geek with the best of them—role playing games, multi-user dungeons, trading cards—the works. Then she found her long-time boyfriend in a dark corner with a girl dressed as Lara “boobs and guns” Croft. That was it for the relationship and for her geekiness. After moving back home, she got a job at a normal bar and grill with normal people to live a normal life. That is until Craig shows up with his RPG character sheet.

Craig Lawrence has been rolling 1s on the relationship front ever since his last girlfriend broke up with him because he apparently spent too much time playing guardian to his rebellious little sister. When he meets Molly, he wants more than anything to win her heart, and this time he’ll do anything to keep his family problems from interfering.

When fate (Molly’s best friend) brings Craig and Molly together (sets them up on a date), will this relationship roll yet another 1? Or will it score a critical hit?

Squee! Critical Hit-On is a breath of fresh air in the book world. It's such a fun and geeky romance. I loved it!

This is certainly not your typical, dime-a-dozen romance. Yes, it does have a little bit of drama (douchey ex-boyfriend, complete misunderstanding and overreaction), but those things aren't the focus of the story. Instead, the story focuses on bringing two people together, happily.

The geekiness is strong in Critical Hit-On. I, for one, loved it! I could possibly see where it might be a bit much for some people because it is laid on a little heavy. However, I don't think anyone should discount this book just because of its extreme geekdom. Instead, embrace it!

Overall, this is a winner for me. Great main characters that are well developed, interesting secondary characters, and an entertaining storyline.


5 out of 5 stars
