Level Up by Kindle Alexander Blog Tour

Level Up. Kindle Alexander. Book Tour July 18 – 20. Kindle Unlimited.

Duncan “Ducky” Reigns, metalhead and hardcore gamer, has spent his life railing against the establishment. But now when he looks at himself in the mirror that’s not the person he sees. Though he and his brother have worked hard to create a successful multi-million-dollar company, he’s lost himself and his identity in the process.

Chad Reeves, successful in his own right, has achieved every goal he’s set for himself. But living up to the legacy of his uber-successful father feels like an impossible task. When the heavy burden of a lifelong secret begins to unravel, he’s forced to face the truth. He’s lacking in what matters the most and only one thing can make it right.

Sometimes a simple reboot is all it takes to realize the answers are right in front of you. A soul-searching trip to paradise changes everything for two best friends… if they are brave enough to follow their hearts and reach for the Level Up.

Level Up is a contemporary, new adult, MM Romance. A standalone story with characters moving forward from both Secret and Breakaway.

Everyone calls me Ducky, and I’m here with Buzzfeed to read some thirst tweets… His gaze skidded to Sara. What the hell? Sexy tweets about him?



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second book in the series, and although you could read it as a standalone, you would get more out of reading them in order. In book one, we got Ducky's older brother Dallas's story, and learned about their successful business venture.

Ducky is having a hard time with the success their invention – his programming – is having, but is happy that his brother has found love, and his colleagues are benefitting from their success. He still prefers to play online games and keeps his friends online too. That said, his new fitness regime and healthy eating has certainly improved his physique – to the point he is being suggested as a part of their company’s new marketing, much to his dismay.

Chad is a long-time bestie with Ducky – but only as an online friend – and what with all the chaos in his life, he decides it is time to meet him for real. As soon as they do, sparks fly and we just know that there is chemistry burning up these two, which we are about to get to enjoy!

I loved that the issues these two very likeable characters have are solvable when together and will provide each with an opportunity to support and heal the other. It is such a naturally symbiotic relationship built out of two people very uncertain in their skins. I really did just love it all. Thank you, Kindle Alexander, for a very worthy book for the second Reigns brother.

Level Up is the second installment in the Reigns Brothers series. It can be read as a standalone, but I don't recommend it. You meet Ducky in the first book, Breakaway, which features Ducky's brother Dallas and Greer.

Ducky hates where StreamTrainer has put him. He's successful and rich, but it is all too much for Ducky. He asked his brother Dallas and Dallas’s husband Greer for help in a makeover. He's gained twenty pounds of muscle and a new haircut but he's happier in his t-shirts than in fitted clothing. He prefers playing his online games and talking to his best friend Chad. Chad just seems to get Ducky even though their friendship is online.

Chad Reeves is Dylan Reeves’s son and Dylan’s husband, Tristan Wilder’s step-son from the book, Secret. (I also highly recommend reading if you haven't.) Chad has always wanted to be in the PGA until he gets there, now he doesn't know what he wants to do with his life. When Ducky does an award show, Chad can't believe the changes in him. Things are said and Chad needs to apologize, so when Ducky asks him to go to Hawaii with him, Chad can't pass up the trip and alone time with Ducky.

I loved watching Ducky and Chad's friendship develop, as well as the attraction to each other. Ducky doesn't understand how someone like Chad could be attracted to him, but Chad does everything in his power to prove to him he's the one for him. The chemistry was off the charts and the sweetness of each of these men pulls at the heartstrings!

I cannot wait for the next book in this series!

At the beginning of Level Up, we meet Ducky and learn he has gone through a transformation. Health eating, times spent in a gym, a new wardrobe, and a haircut, and Ducky is looking like a stud and not like the geeky gamer we met in the first Reigns Brothers book. But Ducky is still the same guy he always was, even if the outside is looking more spiffy.

Chad, Ducky’s best friend, is sporty and outgoing and has been crushing on Ducky since they were teens playing League of Legends together online. Chad’s reaction to seeing Ducky’s transformation was amusing and has some unexpected consequences.

I enjoyed hanging out with Chad and Ducky and seeing them dance around each other. It was cute to see how oblivious they each were of the other’s feelings. The men have great chemistry, but they are also great friends and being with them always felt comfortable and like we were seeing something a bit special.

I found Level Up to be an easy to read, straight forward, friends-to-lovers romance. I enjoyed the low-angst romance, and I had a good time watching the changing relationship between Chad and Ducky. A solid four stars from me.

Ducky and Chad started as online friends. When they finally meet, sparks fly. Chad fell for Ducky before he transformed his body and even though he has physically changed, he's still the same old Ducky. His new look didn't turn him into a douche. These two together are so sweet and so swoon worthy. We also get to see characters from the first book, which was great. I really enjoyed this book. It's the second in the series and you could read it as a standalone but would enjoy more with reading the first one as well.



You just think you like it hard. I’m going to show you what a rich kid can do.
