It’s their first time — in more ways than one.
First Time Player is a sweet and hot instalove nerd romance. Wes is defying his parents' expectations to go into tech, Ana owns the best damn video game store in town. They meet at a geek convention, and the attraction is instant and undeniable. But is that hunger enough for them to break through their barriers and satisfy their cravings for connection?
Wes is the consummate golden child in his family and has the world at his finger tips — but he risks it all to follow his dream of designing apps for video gamers. And now he’s making it, finding success against all the odds.
When he meets Ana — owner of the best damn video game store in town, if she does say so herself — at his first gaming con, he feels an instant connection that makes him crave her like no other.
And Ana feels it, too, powerfully. But she’s been hurt so many times by the men she’s met while scouting new tech at these events, and she’s afraid to trust that it’s safe to open her heart to Wes. But she wants to — and wants him. Badly.
Will Ana let herself fall for this man who seems to be everything she’s been craving? And Wes has a secret that could drive her crazy, but he’s not sure how to tell her.
This is a sweet and sassy instalove novella from the author of The Light Between Us books, and sure to please fans of quick ’n’ dirty romances.

Reader Praise for Poppy Parkes:
“I read the ARC [of Our Happy Holiday] and loved this quick little steamy read.”
“[First Time Player is] a short and sweet romance story that will be especially loved by women who consider themselves to be geeky.”
“[First Time Player is] is a great, quick, second chance story!!”
"[The Light Between Us] was such a lovely read. I absolutely adore this book. It is a comedy of errors that leads to the ultimate whirlwind romance that should never be."
“Finding Me and You is a fun, light-hearted romance. It is the 2nd book in a series, but Parkes provides enough background for this book to stand on it's own. The characters are well thought out and the plot line is easy to follow and makes sense. Typically romance is not the genre I'm most attracted to, but Parkes' writing style provides an easy, fun read that kept me intrigued. …This series is a good one to try.”
“Wedding Jitters was a sexy bold and daring short story from Poppy, it left me with a bit of a pout actually, only because I really wanted more of Padme and Chase, see where it leads. They are such a contrast but somehow it fits It was brilliantly written. Looking forward to seeing what Poppy Parkes has in store for us next.”
