At Any Price by Brenna Aubrey


Achievement Unlocked: Geek Virgin

When Mia Strong, proud geek-girl and popular gaming blogger, auctions off her virginity online, she knows she'll make waves. But what she will not be making is a love connection. Her rules are set in stone: One night. No further contact.

It's a desperate step, but it's the only way she can go to medical school and pay her mother's mounting hospital bills.

Difficulty Level: Millionaire CEO 

Adam Drake, the enigmatic auction winner, is a software prodigy who made his first million at seventeen. Now, in his mid-twenties, he's sexy, driven and--as CEO of his own gaming company--he's used to making the rules. Before Mia knows what's happening, he's found the loophole in the rules of her auction. Every stipulation she's made to protect her heart gets tossed by the wayside.

She can't tell if he's playing her...or if he's playing for keeps.

Reading this book for a buddy read. But now I'm hooked on this series and will be reading it all!

Mia is a gaming girl who plays the games most geeky guys do and writes a blog. She is also a college student who wants to become a doctor, but that takes money. And money is not something that she has a lot of. So she decides to sell a pound of flesh, toss out the V-card. But it will be an auction, highest bidder wins. Yes there are some criteria - not married, no STI, one night only, etc. With the reluctant help of her bff she starts her quest to find the man who will pop her cherry!

Adam Drake, he's known Mia for a long time, only she doesn't know it. But there was no way he was going to let her go thru with this idiotic scheme. He's going to get to the bottom of this and figure out what is motivating her, if he can just break away from work for and pay attention to her for awhile. He drags his feet on popping her cherry, but he can't stop his heart from falling in love with this girl. How could she ever want him? And when she finds out the truth about him then what? End program is what happens. 

Mia and Adam are like any other couple learning each other. They try to navigate through the tough and shallow waters of life, and when the bill swells hit, they hold on and hope for the best. Only is that enough? Not for Mia. Adam just isn't giving enough to her. He is keeping himself at a distance for a reason and she doesn't know why. What's he hiding from her? Can she handle the awful truth? Or will it ruin them both?

This book has me addicted to Adam and Mia! I love how Adam treated Mia, she was fragile he understood and never pressured her. While she begged, he took a step back and realized what was going on. But so did Mia. She pegged him and he didn't like it. Well written book, I can't wait to read the rest of the series!!
