A romance story that will appeal to standard romance lovers as well comic-con goers. More than just your typical romance fluff this book deals with sensitive issues such as fat-shaming, dyslexia, self-acceptance and more.

Such a sweet story. There are so many Game of Thrones references in the first chapter that I was laughing all the way through it. I loved the characters and the writing and will have to read the sequel when it comes out.

Marcus Caster-Rupp is the star of one of the biggest shows on television, Gods of the Gates, similar to Game of Thrones. As with many such shows, there is popular fan fiction written about the show that has spawned its own community. Unbeknownst to anyone, Marcus has started anonymously writing his own fan fiction on the site in an attempt to "fix" what he considers to be poor choices made in the scripts provided by the showrunners. When someone insults April Whittier on Twitter when she posts a picture of herself in her cosplay outfit, Marcus publicly arranges a date with her. Little does he know that April is actually his friend from the fanfic site. Their relationship flourishes, but Marcus is afraid to tell her who he really is.

Spoiler Alert tackles many timely issues including fatshaming and misconceptions about dyslexia in this tale about self-image and acceptance. April is a very believable, no nonsense woman who is just coming into her own. Marcus, however, as an actor, is a tough sell. After starring on one of the most popular shows on television for several years, he has no entourage and can seemingly do pretty much whatever he wants without being accosted in public. His self-awareness is a little hard to accept in today's shallow world of entertainment. Overall, however, this is a romance with much more depth than might be expected in a story of this type and is well worth the read.

OTP. UST. Cosplay. AO3. A Manic Pixie Dream Boy. And, dare I say it, PWP. If you understand and love all of these references, this book is for you! (If not, you might want to research the above before diving in.) Spoiler Alert has everything a shipper could ask for--all the tropes, neatly tied up plot points, and fabulous pacing. A genuinely satisfying read!
