Some fashion statements can kill…

Mika Ito combines her two favorite things in life—textile design and live-action role-playing (LARP)—by creating costumes for her fellow Magic Battledome gamers. Lately, someone’s been assaulting LARPers and stealing their costumes. Concerned for the safety of her friends, Mika hires Maltese Security…only to discover that the lead investigator is the super-hot stranger she just hooked up with.

Carlos Castillo is all too familiar with Magic Battledome. A former legend in role-playing circles, he was all about gaming, until things went very, very wrong for him. Now he’s forced to return to the game undercover—as Mika’s boyfriend—to find some answers. Only playing “boyfriend” with his gorgeous one-night stand is more temptation than a guy can withstand…

Someone wants the costumes enough to kill for them. And when it comes to murder, nothing is what it seems…

***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***

What is better then reading a book about romantic suspense?!  Reading one that has to do with cosplay, fashion and the art of design!  This is the first I have read from Avery Flynn and I have read her book out of order too!  Regardless, I am sure to go back to the beginning!

Her writing is fresh and fun with a twist of fashion and sophistication!  I love love love it!  What I love most is that her main female character is a strong Asian woman who makes her own way in the world after a family tragedy.

Miko Ito is a cosplay costume designer but on the field she is the QUEEN and one of the major playors in the game.  Is someone trying to take out her court?  Or are they just stealing their costumes!!  But why?  The police think it’s just random mugging but she needs more reassurance.  In comes Carlos Castillo, former gamer and full time bodyguard at Maltese Security!!  Or RE-ENTERS!!  You will understand when you read the book!! Sigh… Hmmmppfff!!  He can guard me anyday!!

Avery Flynn has written the perfect equation for suspenseful satisfaction!  Ito (Cosplay x Fashion) + Carlos (Bodyguard x Sexxxines) = YUMMMMMY!!  Should there be another X in there.  Nope.  The book is tasteful with a capital T and it hits the spot.  So grab your favorite snack and snuggle in!!

I tip my Nerd Girl hat to you!!  XOXO 5 Stars
