Book Review - Level Me Up by Lauren Helms


Can the gamer win the girl? 
The last thing Morgan Lawson is looking for when attending Comic-Con is love. But even prior to exchanging first words, Morgan is drawn to Dex, a drop-dead sexy gamer boy who lives and breathes video games. Before she realizes it, Morgan finds herself caught up in all things Dex.

Dex Roberts knows from the moment he first sees Morgan, he wants more. He falls hard and fast but isn’t surprised when his job as a professional video gamer takes a toll on their relationship.

Once Morgan decides what truly makes her happy, there’s no time to waste. But without warning, life threatens to destroy what both Morgan and Dex want most... each other.


If you are a nerd, read this book.  If you are dating or married to a nerd, read this book.  If you have a friend who is a nerd, read this book.  If you have even been in love very young and it scared the crap out of you, read this book.  The debut book by Lauren Helms is full of humor and romance and being a nerd who has been to a Con or two in my time, I found every joke, scene, and character not only spot-on but also entertaining to read.  I really enjoyed Helms' writing style and look forward to reading more books by her hopefully in the near future.

MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy


Author Lauren Helms has been an avid reader from a young age. After starting a book review site, that launched her fully into the book world, she decided to take the plunge and write her first novel. Since she was working for a video game strategy guide publisher at the time, she decided to mix what she knew best, video games and romance. Jumping all in, she joined NaNoWrimo and a month later had a 50K word first draft. Lauren lives in Indianapolis, IN with her video game playing husband, two little girl book nerds, and a little boy who will hopefully be a gamer boy too some day!
