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.

This book reminded me of very well written fan-fiction. While the characters were fun, relatable, and Adam quite sexy. I couldn't shake the feeling of Deja vu. From the billionaire boyfriend to the narrative style of Mia, with her classic desire to be independent put at odds with the tropes of the romance genre, the whole thing felt like an attempt to update the contents of a romance genre on the outside without really changing the inner workings.

While the interactions and dialogue between Adam and Mia was carefully crafted to leave the reader hot and bothered, there wasn't enough happening outside of the bounds of the relationship to make the characters feel fully human and relatable. Everything centered on the stop and start of their romance -- even their past troubles could only be sorted out within the bounds of love.

Yes, I get that a story is a Romance, but for me this felt so centered on their relationship it made Mia's whole feminist argument fall completely flat, because in the end she was entirely defined by her relationship with Adam. Perhaps I wouldn't have minded that if she was more disturbed by her own cognitive dissonance or more self aware, but she felt more like a teenager than a twenty-something to me.

Anyway. Overall, a solid beach read, but the story didn't leave me craving more, and I probably won't be returning for the sequel. Still a very capable writer good with craft. The perfect example of a three star book.

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.

The premise of this book hooked me from the start. I wanted to read it before I knew the story behind it. What’s the story you ask? This book went up for auction but at the end of the day, Brenna Aubrey decided to self-publish it.

In reading At Any Price, I can clearly see why it went up to auction. It’s a great read, great writing and even though I knew going in that it was the first of three books featuring Mia and Adam, the ending left me completely satisfied and eager to read the next book.

Long story short, Mia auctions off her virginity online at the age of twenty-two. She needs money. Her mother has cancer and needs money for treatment as well as to keep the ranch she owns and manages. Mia herself needs money to pay for medical school. She has this Virgin’s Manifesto she posts on her Girl Geek blog (gaming blog) and the comparison she draws to how women’s virtue have sort of always been given away to the highest bidder is a very very good one. After reading it, I totally got the ‘logical’ reason she decided to auction her virginity off and get something for herself in return.

Now of course we know the winner of this big is the hero, who is Adam Drake, a software prodigy who, in his mid-twenties, is the CEO of his own gaming company. Why on earth does this sexy, hot, driven young man have to resort to buying Mia’s virginity online? Yes, there is a very good reason and most readers will pick up on this pretty soon in the book but that knowledge in no way spoils the journey we take with them.

Adam initially rubs Mia the wrong way. So much so, she’s ready to take Mr. Runner-up. Heath, her good friend and fellow gamer, tries to convince her to stick with Adam and eventually she does.
