An Alisa Review: No Rulebook for Flirting by Laura Bailo


Rating:  4 stars out of 5

When Gabriel goes to the annual gaming convention, planning to play as many games as he can during the next three days, he doesn’t expect to be glared to death in the parking lot by a really cute guy. So when the same guy joins the game Gabriel is playing, Gabriel is determined to make him smile, even if it takes some awkward flirting.

When Aitor makes it inside the convention center after someone steals his parking spot, he doesn’t expect to be so attracted to the man he decided to hate just a few minutes earlier. But as he gets to know Gabriel through gaming and flirting, he just can’t look away.

The game of flirting has no rulebook, but for Gabriel and Aitor, it may just have two winners after all.

This was an adorable story.  Gabriel ends up inadvertently taking Aitor’s parking space at the gaming convention and they quickly end up at the same table.  They flirt over the games and let it overflow outside the convention center.

Gabriel and Aitor both seem mostly reserved and their awkward flirting is cute.  I loved watching their interactions and how both of the characters acted with each other.  I felt so bad for Gabriel, I don’t quite know why but he had pretty much decided that he would be off the market forever since no one could want him and pretty much gives up any of his free time to be with family.  We didn’t get to see any of the story from Aitor’s point of view but were able to learn a little bit about him.   I loved seeing these two the next year at the end of the story.

I love the cover art by Written Ink Designs and I think it’s perfect for the story.
