When I started reading this I was like: Yes! A romance involving talk about RPGs and MMORPGs! And then it also included pirates and swordplay. Yay!
This book is modernly original and a fun read for anyone who likes the above. The blurb on the cover didn't do it justice because it really didn't let you know that the lead character was going to be stuck in a video game. It was just such a fun read that I couldn't put it down and I think was even "gamey" enough to get my husband to read, what is, a wonderful comedy-romance story.
There's just a lot of humor in this one. I think the only annoying thing I found was the lead character's daughter, who was a bit too obnoxious for a 16-year-old (at the end of the story). Otherwise, you will get a lot of laughs out of this one.
If you are creeped out by the concept of cyber sex, as I am, don't read this book. Very little character development while requiring significant suspension of disbelief from the reader. I skipped pages/chapters at a time because of lurid/unbelievable sexual content and gave up 1/2 way through...
An interesting mix of romance, the love of pirates and video games. If you have a passion for pirates (ahhhh, my first love in romance books) and video games... this book will tickle your fancy.
