This novel was featured at as one of "13 Romance Novels That Should Be On Every Woman's Bucket List."

When Mia Strong, 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.

Adam Drake, the enigmatic auction winner, is a software prodigy who made his first millions 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 was a really good book.  It was an emotional roller coaster, and it was hot.  The best of both worlds.  This book was also very well edited, no typos or misspellings. .  I also love that the story naturally ends.  You can read the next book if you wish, but the story you have is a full story.  Thank you.  This one is worth the money.  I enjoyed it.

** spoiler alert ** Five stars is NOT enough! I loved,loved,loved this story so very much!!Though at first I wasn't into the concept of the book but after reading the Synopsis, I thought it was intriguing. Different then most romances, this one focused on Emelia (Mia for short)a gamer, Blogger and proud computer geek who puts her virginity up for the highest bidder. With help from her best friend the bid is soon won by a very rich game programmer by the name of Adam. Takes her to many far away places before secrets come out that can rip their relationship apart. Can he take himself away from work long enough to see the hurts of the past is what Mia needs? Turns out Adam had been seeking her out longer then she first thought. A true love story at the core. Adam and Mia make a great sexy pair! Characters are truly believable. Cover looks great! I look forward to reading more by this author! A great read for all romance lovers! There is a lot to love about this book! You want this book, you know you want too!

EEP! So I am going to go totally fangirl over this book! I LOVED it! This is every nerd girl/gamer chicks dream! So I wont spoil too much, but obviously you have read the blurb, so you know the plot. It was so fun and original, and completely set this book apart for me. Not only was the storyline clever and amusing, but the characters were awesome as well. Adam was delicious, rich, and a total geek at heart, I soooo have a new book bf! Amelia was a total bad-ass blogger who is seriously cool with all her gaming and dork knowledge. I found her easy to relate to and strong, but not withought her flaws, which she has to face in this book. The secondary cast was great as well.  The steaminess was perfect. Just the right amount of love scenes for me, enough to tease and keep me interested, but not overload that causes me to skim by.  I loved Breanna Aubrey's writing style. She was so amusing and humorous, as well as bright and exceptional. Overall I was so happy to have stumbled upon this read. I could not put it down and read in one sitting into the wee hours! The story was not a cliffhanger, but Mia and Adam will get to light up imaginations again in two more books, it appears! I only pray they come out super fast while the story is fresh on my mind, because I am now impatiently awaiting them!

I enjoyed this book. I am not blown away by it like some books I have read and I am not sure if I would re-read it, but I will read the next in the series. I did not realize that this is the first book in a trilogy of books. To me this book could be a stand alone as it felt complete to me. So, even though I am not sure where the next book will go, I do plan on reading it. ENJOY!!!

Loved the book. Brenna Aubrey tells a story with masterful perfection, I can't wait for the next book.

I had to skip over some boring parts, but enjoyed the overall story. I don't think I will read the other two. I'm not interested in finding out what drama separates them and has them reunite in books 2 and 3. I love to read, but haven't finished a book in a while now, because they are all getting so predictable. This one was predictable, but I was at least able to stick with it to the end. This author could be really good if she had a good editor sifting out the tedius parts of the story.

I am not a gamer but I Loved this book. I skimmed some of the game talk. But the characters were wonderful, the story line fantastic, and the emotions a roller coaster ride. Very well written, can be a stand alone book. There was a nice ending.

I have to say it was a good book. I am not much of a gamer so I think it had too much video game talk. Good characters and story but I saw it coming at the very beginning.

This book contains, sex, romance, betrayal of sort, love, and forgiveness. It is a must to read. Some of lives journeys are apparent in this book. It is what we do with what we know and find out that makes a difference.

Could not stand the h. Too many angry outbursts with an over-abundance of whiny, repetitive internal dialog to justify it.

Really? Is this what we are all reading now?

I lived this story, it was so intense. I wanted desperately for them to be together. And by the end of the book I was almost in tears at the pain they both had to endure. Amazing read! Loved every minute. (Finished in less than 24 hours)

I thought this would be a great book, it had such potential. But sadly I was severely disappointed. The entire relationship between the two characters was completely messed up and unrealistic. And yet the author still tried to make believable and give them a "happy ending". Either go all the way or not at all. Leave this one in the shelf. Not worth reading even if it is for free.

I liked the characters and plot. I was able to guess what would happen, but it was put together well. I don’t see a reason for a sequel since everything was answered.

The content was well researched and we'll written, but the big "twist" was obvious from the first chapter, I have no idea how two supposedly intelligent people never even guessed at the possibility. It was super frustrating.
