Love, From A to Z by Robin Alexander

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆ Robin Alexander books are like a carefully hoarded treat that we dip into when we feel rather deserving. Though this one was...

Gotta Catch Her by Kelly Haworth





⭐⭐⭐☆



A Pokémon-type game as a basis for starting a romance. An interesting premise.



Ann, a project manager, and Rachael, a single mom are both into an Ani-Min game which has ‘teams’ and ‘raids’ that require physical presence. They meet as one such raid and Ann’s interest is immediately piqued. Slightly socially awkward, Ann fumbles around to find out Rachael’s sexual orientation while working around her own crazy office workload and Rachael’s challenging lack-of-time as a result of being a single mom.



The story is narrated from Ann’s point-of-view so we know Rachael only from Ann’s perspective and from the interactions between the two of them. There are times in the middle of the book when Ann seems too closed and unable (unwilling?) to give anything emotionally to Rachael and to her colleague, Chelsea. However, at the end she does redeem herself. Rachael is really likeable which is why Ann gets even more frustrating in the middle.


It is also a little weird that even when the MCs are together, they first play their game on their phones and then pay attention to each other. That doesn’t seem like a lot of attraction or excitement happening between them. Or maybe, we are just a tad idealistic. However, the author has done a great job with imagining the game.

This is a short, easy read – may not stay with you for any length of time, but won’t make you feel like you’ve wasted your time either.

(One extra star here for Rachael – we really liked her!)

⭐⭐⭐☆
