Book Description

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.

**This New Adult book is intended for readers over the age of 18 due to adult language, sexual content and adult situations. **

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Amazing Stars.... December 5, 2013

Brenna Aubrey

This ARC was given by Silver Griffon Associates via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I can honestly say I was not thrilled to hear this book was about gaming, but it spiked my interest enough to give it a shot! NEVER judge a book by its cover! My husband is an avid gamer, so I am very familiar with the gaming world and thought to myself how could this make for a good romance novel? Not only is it a great romance novel, but it is sexy as Hell.

Adam and Emilia (Mia) have great chemistry together.

Emilia Strong is not the poor, weak victim that you want to slap sense into during the entire novel. She was rejected by her own father before she was even born,but grew up in a loving home with her mother. Mia is a brilliant college student awaiting graduation and the chance to retake her MCAT to begin her premed dreams. She failed the last time because her mom was fighting cancer. Now that her mom is better, she faces losing their home and business. Mia decides to type up a manifesto on her gaming blog and auctions off her virginity to the highest bidder. Mia sees this as her mom's only chance to save the house.

Adam Drake wins the auction and has his own reasons for wanting to be the winner of Mia's auction. Little does he know how empty his very successful life has become and is constantly trying to find ways to extend their one night contract.

"Every minute I spent with you made me want a hundred minutes more."-Adam

He and Mia are happy with their "no dating" policy in order to achieve their dreams. However, they find they both share way more things in common and won't give up control.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gamers are sexy. December 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The definition of prostitution is the practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity with someone for payment.

And no matter how many times Mia attempts to justify her deal with Adam, it is exactly that. Selling your body, or parts of your body, for money.

This was a weird ass book. Like an interesting weird. I’ve NEVER read anything remotely close to it. That's for damn sure.

I originally chose to read it because of the gaming aspect. I love that Mia is an online gamer (although I’m accustomed to more of a console type gaming) and she is working towards being a doctor. Her life is normal and great and I wasn’t prepared for what would happen. (Yeah, I read the synopsis but I didn’t realize it would be done so bluntly).

So many books that I’ve been reading lately have a heroine with a terrible sexual assault history that ruins their chances with future men. I saw it coming in this one and didn’t know how it would affect her relationship with Adam. (Not that much, actually. She’s had years to recover and apparently talking about it to a shrink solves all problems. Kinda pissed me off).

Mia was actually a very strong character. She’s had a rough hand of life dealt to her and she keeps on going. (I, on the other hand, go into an emotional loss every time I watch an episode of Supernatural). She perseveres and looks forward to her future. As much as it saddened me to read what had happened to her, I saw that her future was much brighter and I felt better about finishing this book.

And then Adam shows up, winning bidder of her strange ass auction, and her whole life erupts into something more.

Better? Maybe.
Confusing? Totally.
Sexy? Oh, yes, Mr. Drake. So much of that.

3.5 stars

This started out being about a 4-star read for me, but the more I read the more I felt like this fell into too many new adult/rich-billionaire romance novels tropes.

I immediately liked Mia, she was an interesting, smart, and strong (appropriate since that's her last name) main character. The manifesto she posts on her gaming blog, about the cost of virginity in history and how she wants to kind of claim her own virginity for herself by auctioning it off, was really interesting.

The man who wins the auction, billionaire Adam Drake, took me by surprise. I didn't expect him to want to be so intimately involved with Mia, I guess I kind of expected that would grow over time, or to be such an a-hole at the beginning. It was kind of like the more time Adam and Mia spent together the more of Mia's personality fell away until she was just this lost, sad girl.

Even though it bothered me that Mia lost so much of herself to Adam, I don't think it was completely inappropriate for the story. Mia is fighting some bad experiences from her childhood (her dad abandoning her, being sexually assaulted as a teen) and she's built a lot of walls around herself (see staying a virgin until 22-years-old) so it makes sense these would have to fall down before she can move on with her life, but I still didn't love the way that it happened or the person Mia became.

Adam also has some secrets, but I thought they were pretty easy to figure out. I correctly guessed one of his secrets towards the beginning of the story, but I don't think it took away from the story at all, I kind of liked that I knew this big secret (or assumed I knew) that Mia didn't, even though I thought Mia was kind of ridiculous for not being able to figure it out.
