Book Review: Playing for Love – Jeevani Charika

A massive thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for this advanced copy!

The blurb from the back of the book:

When Sam’s not working on her fledgling business, she spends her time secretly video-gaming. Her crush is famous gamer Blaze, and she’s thrilled when she’s teamed up with him in a virtual tournament.

But what Sam doesn’t know is that Blaze is the alter ego of Luke, her shy colleague – and he has a secret crush too.

How will this game of love play out?

Luke has a crush on Sam.
Sam has a crush on Blaze.


I love how this book is set out. It is set along two timelines: one in the real world, and then one in a parallel gaming world.

I really loved Luke. He is super shy, but it really adds to his character. And Sam! She loves Luke and doesn’t even know it!

Sam fell in love with Luke’s gaming character, Blaze, and now they get to meet in real life; and she is totally unaware of who Blaze is.

This was a super cute book, and a quick read. I highly recommend!

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
