ARC Review: LOOKING FOR GROUP by Alexis Hall

People you meet online aren't real. Except that they totally are.

So, yeah, I play Heroes of Legend, y’know, the MMO. I’m not like obsessed or addicted or anything. It’s just a game. Anyway, there was this girl in my guild who I really liked because she was funny and nerdy and a great healer. Of course, my mates thought it was hilarious I was into someone I’d met online. And they thought it was even more hilarious when she turned out to be a boy IRL. But the joke’s on them because I still really like him.

And now that we’re together, it’s going pretty well. Except sometimes I think Kit—that’s his name, sorry I didn’t mention that—spends way too much time in HoL. I know he has friends in the guild, but he has me now, and my friends, and everyone knows people you meet online aren’t real. I mean. Not Kit. Kit's real. Obviously.

Oh, I’m Drew, by the way. This is sort of my story. About how I messed up some stuff and figured out some stuff. And fell in love and stuff.

Rating: 4 stars!

So many books, so little time -- that's what 2016 has been like for me. On the bright side, I got to read some authors that have been on my must-read list for too long, and I've been lucky in picking my reading material because the books I did read introduced me to a lot of amazing and lovable characters. Alexis Hall is one those authors, and Drew and Kit, the stars of Looking for Group, are among those characters.

As Drew says in the blurb, this book is sort of his story. About how he messed up some stuff, and figured out some stuff. And fell in love and stuff. And it's a sweet story. A really sweet story that had me a bit worried at the beginning. Drew plays Heroes of Legend, an online game, and the story starts when he joins a new guild. There are entire transcripts of the members' conversations in the book, and descriptions of their raids, and I, well, I had almost no clue what was happening during those raids or what even they were talking about. So, yeah, I got a little worried, but as soon as Orcarella (Drew) and Solace (Kit) started chatting in the game, all my worries vanished. Their chats were so cute they always made me smile.

What came next was the messing up, figuring out, and falling in love. Drew liked Solace from the start, but there was that thing that he believed Solace was a girl. When she turned out to be a he, Drew went through a phase where he was disappointed first because until then he was only into girls, but then he realized that even though Solace was Kit, a boy, he still liked him. Luckily for him, Kit liked him too, and they decided to not only hang out together in HoL, but in real life as well, where they continued to be adorable in building their romantic relationship. Drew had a few moments when I wanted to smack him a little because he was messing up, and I felt bad for Kit. In the end, Drew figured things out, and made his apologies, and everything was adorable once again.

So, yeah, I finally read a book by Alexis Hall and I liked it.
