Blow Me Down | [Katie MacAlister]

Blow Me Down

In the Internet virtual reality game Buckling Swashes, Earless Erika and Black Corbin are two of the most deadly pirates to sail the online seas. And now they've met their matches: each other. But fearless Earless Erika is really just Amy - a financial analyst with little time in her life for anything but work. And Corbin is none other than the man behind the game - the programmer and owner of the company. He's intrigued by Amy, the only buccaneer to best him in this test of digital testosterone, while she just wants to take his arrogance down a peg. But soon the two find themselves comrades in arms against a merciless rival bent on Corbin's destruction....

Publisher's Summary

In the Internet virtual reality game Buckling Swashes, Earless Erika and Black Corbin are two of the most deadly pirates to sail the online seas. And now they've met their matches: each other. But fearless Earless Erika is really just Amy - a financial analyst with little time in her life for anything but work. And Corbin is none other than the man behind the game - the programmer and owner of the company. He's intrigued by Amy, the only buccaneer to best him in this test of digital testosterone, while she just wants to take his arrogance down a peg. But soon the two find themselves comrades in arms against a merciless rival bent on Corbin's destruction - both on the virtual high seas and in real life. Only by setting aside their differences can they locate the actual people behind the swaggering swashbucklers - and along the way find that love can tame even the most fearsome of pirates.

What the Critics Say

"Only MacAlister could devise these outlandishly sexy and hilarious high-seas high jinks that have virtual reality running amok. Today's world can always use more humor and, lucky for us, MacAlister is there to deliver." (RT Book Reviews)

    Story
    "Expected so much more"

    What a funny, clever idea! A software engineer, a "Second Life" type game, two people meet, fall in love, live happily ever after.

    Except the story which could have been so simply told was convoluted and dragged along with no real interaction between the main characters. Oh, and the story has already been executed well by other authors, and even an Australian children's TV program. I could not get much past the first three or four chapters. Very disappointing.
