Hiya beautiful people!
How are we all doing today? Hope you’re fine, because today I’m going to review a 5 stars book that’s gonna make you all squeal!
“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.
Cool right?? I know!
What I loved:
It’s about a geeky girl obsessed with blogging and gaming! I could definitely relate to that!
I simply adored all the feministic messages it passed, and Mia’s strong inner voice was so refreshing!
It was fast paced, and one of those books you simply can’t put down. (I started the book at 9 pm, and finished it at 6 am. Yup.)
Mia was very relatable.Her actions and her way of thinking remind me a lot of me and the way I’m thinking, and my friends as well.
Adam. How do I even begin? He’s the most recent member of “The book boyfriend club”
He is a genuinely good person,wants the best for Mia and is very protective. Even though she doesn’t need it, that girl is a BADASS.
Character development. Simply amazing.
The exquisite way of handling the whole losing your virginity situation, which in some other books I’ve read becomes romanticized and as we know in real life it’s not THE best thing in the world lol.
What I didn’t like:
I loved everything alright? I loved everything.
Besides wanting to slap them both to get together sooner, I loved everything.
I’m fangirling here ok? shut up.
In conclusion,this was a very unique storyline,fast paced, with a really well thought out messages that shine through.
I cannot wait for book #2 and book #3!
So,that’s it my lovelies! Until later! xoxo
