Riley Andrews is a gamer. By day, she breeds, raises, and trains Shire draft horses. All night, she loses herself in a battle of assault rifles and quick knives. First Person Shooters are her true love. She’s good. She’s damned good, but no one’s realized that “QQ” isn’t just one of the guys. On the other side of a monitor, she’s as anonymous as everyone else.
When her only chance to save the family horse farm is to win a game tournament – for the prize money – Riley knows she can do it, but it means showing her face. The tournament is streamed live across the internet. If she can win, she’ll not only get the money she needs but prove the boys wrong.
She just never saw Void coming.
No one knows anything about the mysterious man behind the character. Void’s hot as hell and has Riley right in his sights. He was supposed to be another corpse on her way to the top. Instead, he dares her to become more. He taunts her to change the entire scene. He challenges her to prove that games aren’t just a boy’s club anymore.
Riley’s more than willing to accept.
Auryn Hadley is a happy Texan who swelters in the summers with her husband, three dogs, and the neighborhood cats. Her coffee addiction is impressive and allows her to keep writing the next book. Her husband keeps telling her it’s great, even though he doesn’t like to read, so she ignores him.
With a degree in biology, a few decades in gaming, and a love for all things out of this world, she writes across genres looking for the story that is begging to be told. From love to loss, hopes and dreams, there’s always an escape waiting inside the pages of her books. She tries to capture the idealism of YA literature while addressing more adult topics because life doesn’t get any less exciting when you grow up.
