Summary

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 26-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.

liked it alot

I love male virgin stories and it'd taken me so long to read this, I totally forgot the hero was a virgin. He was autistic, second one I've read in such a short time, and off sometimes but charming in his own way. He was loyal and expected it, and I liked how he treated his leading lady, despite feeling she didnt deserve it sometimes.

The heroine was cool too. She was a refugee from Bosnia who'd lived in the US most her life. I think there was a great opportunity to normalize Muslim characters, but she turned out to be a Bosnian-Croat, which was ok, but didnt challenge more than your typical white, christian heroine.

Even though they both kinda annoyed me at times(william didnt get colloquials so he often couldnt take a form of expression without questioning it. that was ok, but for him to be in his 20's, it felt like most of them he'd heard for the first time). But Jenna lost a past boyfriend as a teenager, who she felt was her soulmate, so she never let people in, even after William vowed to get a family heirloom back. He was always there for her, without expecting anything in return, and the minute he needed her, she bounced.

I understood why he got so upset with her, and while he was a little honest/mean about it, how was he supposed to feel?

I didnt like that the last two chapters were from Mia and Adam's POV(one was a sneak peek from book 6) because I wasnt particularly interested in their story yet, so I didnt really care about them. But maybe one day I'll start the series from one, but until then, I'll have this story...

Could Not Finish

I did not like this book for a couple of reasons. First, the female lead is a jerk. If the genders were reversed, people would be up in arms about her behavior. She’s basically knowingly taking advantage of a guy who is heal over heels for her. Second. I know autism is a spectrum and, in this case, Aspergers presents in many ways, but I did not care for the way it was presented here. It felt reductive. Unintentionally. I think the author intended sensitivity, and I am glad that the author chose to make the protagonist be on the spectrum. It just felt like the author decided which “quirks” the male lead was to have and then beat them into the ground.
Also, this is something that bothered me but did not affect the rating because it’s not exactly reasonable. Because this is an audio format, hearing their group called “the clan” over and over again was......uncomfortable. In print it’s probably less noticeable.

Great Series

I really enjoyed this book and I loved this series. I would actually like to see another book about William and Jenna. Jenna kind of got on my nerves sometimes but overall most certainly worth a credit.

Hello Sir William!!!

I just finished this book and was disappointed with no epilogue but was pleasantly surprised that finally I had read a romance novel that was not like the usually lead male and was not surprised that I could want a mam like that.
Autism spectrum is not reason for romance and love not to make for a good love story.
I feel like we need to be as open to love and look inside of a person and not follow a set of social regulations to guide our heart.
worth a credit; in this audible fanatic mind was a yes hands down.

Good job.

Good job depicting Aspergers. Plus loved her tolerance and compassion for him. Glad they went to Bosnia.

Different

The story between William and Jenna was a little different. William suffers from Austim and does not pick up on a lot of verbs and emotional queues.

Jenna grew up in a war torn country and has experienced death and loss.

They both have a lot to learn about how to love and forgive others and themselves. It was a sweet story.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a rare woman who will make the effort to connect with her man.
