April Whittier has kept her nerd love of high fantasy hidden from the rest of her high-powered life for years, but no more. When she posts a photo cosplaying her favorite character, it goes viral - but not everyone supports her plus-size interpretation. When the star of her favorite show steps in and asks her on a date to silence her critics, it seems like her life has turned into something straight out of fanfiction. However, heartthrob Marcus Caster-Rupp has his own fandom secrets. He spends his free time writing fanfiction anonymously, working out his frustrations on how the showrunners treat his character without getting fired. Halfway through their date he realizes that April is his closest online friend. He feels a real connection with her, but with his career on the line can April and Marcus stop hiding and find their epic happy ending?
On top of being a sweet and witty romance, this book is a love letter to fandom culture. Fans of epic series like Game of Thrones or Harry Potter will recognize and love a lot of the tropes and experiences Dade draws on. I would definitely recommend this quick, funny, nerdy read!
