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?

CONNECTION ERROR is a bit more serious and angstier than the previous books in this series, but definitely my favorite so far.

Josiah is a video game programmer on his way to head a new project for the company he works for. This is his first time heading a project and he knows he has to get it right. On the plane he's sitting next to muscle-y and beefy Ryan. After a storm puts their plane back on the ground unexpectedly, they decide to hang out for the night.

Their first meeting initially very cute, until it became awkward because of Josiah's struggle with impulse control. He just says whatever he's thinking... and in this case it almost ruined what he and Ryan had before it even started. Luckily Ryan couldn't stop thinking about him and gave Josiah another shot.

Ryan was severely injured while overseas as a SEAL. He's struggling through his physical therapy, phantom pain, and needing help to do everyday things.

Between Josiah's struggles with his ADHD and work, and Ryan trying to deal with his situation post being a Nave SEAL, there was a more serious tone than I had expected.

It wasn't all serious though. I don't know what it is about emails/text/letters between main characters, but they get me every time. I adored their email and text conversations. I guess the emails and texts were less intimidating because they're not face to face, so Ryan and Josiah had some of their best conversations via email.

I really loved everything about CONNECTION ERROR. With the military character, hurt/comfort theme, and the sweet moments throughout, I highly recommend picking up this book.
