Title: Connection Error
It's typical of video game programmer Josiah Simmons to be the last one on the plane on the way to the biggest meeting of his career. Though he's (mostly) coping with his ADHD, he can't handle another distraction. But he also can't ignore his rugged seatmate—especially once he learns the military man's a fan of his game.
Ryan Orson refuses to let his severe injuries pause his career as a navy SEAL. He's got hours of grueling physical therapy ahead of him, and no time for anything that might get in the way of his return to active duty. But that doesn't mean he's above a little first-class flirtation with geeky-cute Josiah.
When a delay strands the pair in St. Louis, they agree to share a hotel room and a night of gaming. Neither expects their new connection to move to the next level in the light of day. Opposites may attract, but is this game over before it's even begun?

Josiah meets Ryan in the first class section of a flight he’s taking from LAX to Washington DC. They instantly connect. Ryan is a sexy, sweet, gamer and happens to be gay. Josiah is excited. Ryan is a Navy Seal enroute to get fitted for a new set of legs. He’s determined to retake back his life. Josiah notices Ryan’s legs but doesn’t say anything. He’s is happy that Ryan loves his game!
The flight get diverted in a snowstorm and Ryan offers Josiah a chance to share his hotel room and a night of gaming. Once there, they realize there is only one bed. Ryan’s anxiety ramps up feeling bad about his loss of legs. Josiah steps in and eases Ryan’s pain. A little something something goes on! Ryan is prepared to leave the next morning when he notices Josiah left one of his laptops behind. He’s sure he would need it for his big meeting.
Over a three week period, Ryan and Josiah text, talk, and game together. They make a connection. Josiah is smitten, but what would a sexy Navy seal want with a young up and coming gamer with ADHD?? Plus work is stressful. Being able to talk with Ryan calms him down. Ryan seemed to feel the same way. Not comfortable talking with his family or other amputees, he’s struggling. He doesn’t want to be a burden, but getting used to the prosthetics are hard.
Ryan and Josiah meet a few weeks later and actually spend some time together. They feel the connection and make further plans to meet up again. They continue to keep in touch by phone and texts all the while opening to each other. Each one helps the other through their hang-ups and they end up becoming much closer than they ever anticipated.
This was a very slow burn romance that really tugged on your heartstrings! I love Annabeth Albert’s books and this is no exception! Ryan and Josiah are so very tender and sweet with each other and I loved how their romance progressed. If you love those slow burn, tender M/M romances, this is your next read!!
