YA fic

Adam's mum owns an arcade. He loves it, and talks about it on social media. Whitney's dad owns e-sport cafe´s, and she is running it's social media. They used to be best friends. Now they trade insults on twitter.

But owning a pinball arcade is not exactly big business, and they are struggling.  Since he is in HS he is also trying to figure out what he wants.

Whitney is too busy trying to get her dad to notice her. Her boyfriend and friends sounds like utter losers too.

It was never any big drama. They trade insults, they get to know each other again. They re evaluate their lives, and that big snow storm is first at the end of the book.

A slow building romance formed from friendship. And lots of pinball trivia 

I have never listened to these narrators before, but I really enjoyed their voices. They worked well with their chapters. It all went together really nicely.

Adam Stillwater is in over his head. At least, that’s what his best friend would say. And his mom. And the guy who runs the hardware store down the street. But this pinball arcade is the only piece of his dad that Adam has left, and he’s determined to protect it from Philadelphia’s newest tech mogul, who wants to turn it into another one of his cold, lifeless gaming cafés.

Whitney Mitchell doesn’t know how she got here. Her parents split up. She lost all her friends. Her boyfriend dumped her. And now she’s spending her senior year running social media for her dad’s chain of super successful gaming cafés - which mostly consists of trading insults with that decrepit old pinball arcade across town.

But when a huge snowstorm hits, Adam and Whitney suddenly find themselves trapped inside the arcade. Cut off from their families, their worlds, and their responsibilities, the tension between them seems to melt away, leaving something else in its place. But what happens when the storm stops?


  1. I have listened to Natalie Naudus but the other narrator is new to me. This sounds like such a great listen.

  2. Sounds fairly okay I guess good narrators would take it up a notch.

  3. Forced proximity romance/friendship? Sounds fun! :)

    1. THough that was at the end so really last second

  4. I do like seeing frenemies work it out. Fun that his family owns an old arcade.

  5. His first book didn't really click with me but this sounds cute so I might give it a go if I can find the audio.

  6. "A slow building romance formed from friendship" this romance is the perfect one!

  7. Glad you enjoyed it. I've never listened to these narrators before either. Glad they worked for you too.
