Blog Tour: Playing for Love – Jeevani Charika

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.

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

How will this game of love play out?

A fun, feel-good romance for fans of You’ve Got Mail, Helen Hoang, Jasmine Guillory and Lindsey Kelk.

My thoughts: I’m not a gamer by any stretch of the imagination but I am married to one, although he’s not as passionate as Sam and Luke are, or should I say Blaze and Bravura! But between their work space friendship and the unknowing one they’re having online, things can either go horribly wrong or very, very right.

This was a funny, sweet, light hearted rom com, a bit You’ve Got Mail for the new century and a bit Sleepless in Seattle but with a Sri Lankan protagonist. Sam’s honouring of her late mother through her business was lovely, even if her dad struggled to fully understand it. I really liked Sam and her cheeky flatmate/cousin. They were lots of fun, and the office receptionist was a hoot, trying to matchmake from behind her desk.
