Reader Author Match with Lauren Helms
May 25, 2018
AUTHOR READER MATCH
Writes: Hi! I write new adult romance that is totally nerdy and
playful romcoms with a touch of heart.
About: I'm a thirty-something newish author who loves all
things pop culture. I'm a SAHM of three, book publicist on the side, and read
way more than I should…I mean who else is gonna load the dishwasher, fold the
mounds of clothes and feed kids? I use to work in the video game industry which
is how I came up with the plot of my Gamer Boy series. My newest release, ONE MORE ROUND features a
sexy pro gamer and his "one that got away ."
What I'm looking for in my ideal reader match:
- someone who enjoys pop culture refences
- someone who has at least a small amount of appreciation for video games
- someone who love characters that have some growing to do but are still
loveable and real
- someone who loves a story with heart
What to expect if we're compatible:
- More sexy and sweet gamer boys
- To laugh, cry, maybe an eye roll here and there when reading my books
- A lot of nerdy shenanigans in my reader group
Can the gamer keep the girl?
Gia is living the dream with an amazing career and wonderful friends. Her life
is on the right track, until a tall, broody blast-from-the-past breezes back
into her life, sending her into a tailspin. She never forgot about Simon—her
first love—or the way she cut him from her life all those years ago. Now, she
doesn't know what to do.
Simon never forgot the girl next door, or how she broke his heart when she left
without even a goodbye. Thankfully, life as a professional gamer keeps his mind
off his broken heart. That is, until he suddenly finds himself back in her path.
Now he's pushing her boundaries and testing her limits.
Simon and Gia have to find a way to coexist. They started as friends, and maybe
it's time to go back to the beginning. Only, this time around, being ‘just
friends' doesn't seem to be enough. Simon has doubts, and Gia has secrets. Will
they be able to let go of the past that hurt them both or will history repeat

the plunge and joined NaNoWrimo and a month later, she had her first draft.
