This is a book I can read over and over again. It always makes me giggle and the characters never get old: the charismatic and loyal best friend who provides much of the comic relief, the scallywag yet endearing pirate crew, and a macabre child sidekick. And don't forget the mystery of 'who is the bad guy?' with a whole host of characters as a possibility.

I'm a huge Katie MacAlister fan and when I discovered her book I bought them all up, when I need a good read I pick up one by her and just lose myself. Blow Me Down, was one in my MacAlister stash I hadn’t read yet, so I started it read for another funny, witty, stand apart read I have to admit as usual I was not disappointed. As has been mentioned by others, Blow Me Down is about a woman who gets trapped in a VR game, meets the game creator, and needs to get out of the game. And that's where the paranormal part comes in, so you really need to check your disbelief suspension before going further. She gets stuck in the game and can't get out. Furthermore, it's not just audiovisual--you feel everything that happens in the game as if it's real. And your character looks the way you see yourself. If anyone decides to not read this book on the summary alone that person is missing a lot of fun. Sure the mechanics of the game are a little loose, but it's a romance novel not a sci-fi novel. I rolled my eyes a bit at Amy's (to my mind) overdone insistence on there not being any killing in the game, and even more when Corbin agrees--hello? It's a pirate game. What do they think happens when they sink a ship? And what, then, is the point of the cannons and swords? But that was a small annoyance in a fun, delightful book. I enjoyed the puzzle aspect, and despite the unreal setting, the development of the relationship between Amy and Corbin was realistic and sexy. I particularly enjoyed what their character’s appearances said about them. It was a nice touch. So, on my avid recommendation, avast me hearties to the nearest booking-type establishment and procure a copy to peruse. It will shiver your timbers in more ways than one! Arg!!

But this book wasnt a favorite of mine. Where i am normally chuckling to myself and can hardly put any of Katie Macs books down, this one kinda drug along. It was alright, but corny and doesnt amount to her other books in my opinion.
