Release Blitz Review: Puzzle Me This by Eli Easton

Puzzle Me This
by Eli Easton
Release Date: September 6, 2019
Genre: M/M Romance
Goodreads

Luke Schumaker designs computer games, working from his home. Every day he walks his dog in the woods nearby, never suspecting that someone who is completely smitten is watching.

The watcher is Alex Shaw, and he too works from home, designing logic and crossword puzzles. Alex’s options are limited: he’s too shy to approach Luke and his wheelchair won’t let him follow into the woods. His solution? Secret messages for Luke in the crosswords he writes for the local paper.

When Luke decodes them, romance begins, but then they face greater puzzles, like Alex’s interfering sister and what commitment to a man in a wheelchair really takes. And, most puzzling of all, how do you know if love is real?




This is a rather cute and short read about a guy on a wheelchair trying to woo his new neighbor. For me, the best part of this short read is the beginning when it all starts with the mysterious puzzle in a newspaper. I thought that was pretty brilliant and I can't wait for Alex and Luke to meet up. From then on, it was quite a breeze to see how they are so compatible with each other despite Alex's disability. There was a minor drama of Luke getting a little cold feet towards the end, which make me feel a bit disconcerted. Usually for these short read, I prefer to avoid these drama because I feel that there isn't enough time to properly addressed it. I makes me feel their reunion is too easy.
