The Married Gamers Review Schooled


Reviewed by Kelly Brown January 22, 2013

When a book grabs your attention in such a ways that you are actually indecisive if you want to read it as quickly as possible or take it slow and easy, you know that the author has hit a sweet spot in storytelling. This is certainly true for Christa Charter’s book “Schooled (Lexy Cooper Videogame Mystery)“. This story has a way of grabbing your by the arms and begging you to learn more about the “dirty” secrets of the video game industry.

Christa Charter introduces the reader to Lexy Cooper at the very beginning of the book. Lexy works for Xenon as a Community Manager. Lexy is a very sassy and brassy young lady who is not always sure about what she wants but isn’t afraid of going after the things that she is certain about. This both helps and hinders her throughout the story. With the on again, off again relationship with her boyfriend Nate often causing Lexy to question what she is doing with her life, it throws many twists and turns into the story. What Lexy is able to do is help her homicide detective uncle Mike figure out what has happened when a young woman is found murdered on the grounds of Xenon.

With Christa Charter bringing insider knowledge to the table with her writing, the reader knows that there is some definite truth within this fictional tale. This is by no means a book that should be read by the faint of heart. There are racy scenes of scantily clad video game professionals. This is a story that keeps the reader on their toes from beginning to end and begging for more. Thankfully, it is only the first in the trilogy so there is more to come. “Schooled (Lexy Cooper Videogame Mystery)” is currently available in the Amazon store for $6.99 and there are plans to have a print copy of the book out soon.
