Blurb From Goodreads:
Alicia Chambers was stuck on Step 2. No matter how many resumes she sent out, she couldn’t find a job in the one field that she really wanted to be in: phone app development. It seemed like most successful apps were started by a single inspired person in their basement, including the most recent craze, Monster Go.
If only Alicia could find her own inspiration for an app…
Drawn into the game (research, she told herself), she meets a handsome stranger who also plays. He’s perfect for her: rich, handsome, and nerdy. However, despite formerly being in app development himself, Jacob seems to have left it all behind.
Between romantic dates and catching monsters, Alicia finds herself growing closer to the mysterious man. But when she learns something that he deliberately kept hidden, will she flee his secretive life?
Will she let him know her own secret: that she accidentally caught one of his little monsters?
This was cute but just didn’t grab me. For a smart woman, Alicia doesn’t seem too aware. Plus she was just willing to walk away without an explanation, I understand she was upset but if you truly love someone you’ll give them a chance to explain. I figured it out right after the first game update. Also, I didn’t quite understand why she couldn’t just create an app herself while job hunting. Although I did love how he apologized with the rare monster, that was cute. The title also didn’t make a lot of sense, it’s like it was used because of Pokemon but didn’t seem to have anything to do with the game in the book. I won’t say don’t read this, that’s not how I work since I know everyone has different tastes. I’m just saying this wasn’t that great in my opinion but you may LOVE it, who knows…. read it and find out!
