Publisher's Summary

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 17. Now in his mid-20s, he's sexy, driven, and - as CEO of his own gaming company - 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 contemporary romance is intended for listeners over the age of 18 due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.

    "Loved listening to this - But....."

    Just finished this one and was looking for the 2nd book in this series, At Any Turn. However, I was disappointed that it is not available on Audible. The 3rd book in this series is available on here. What the Heck???

    "Absolute Perfection!"
    Where does At Any Price rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Defiantly in the top 5. But that is ONLY because my absolute favorite audiobook series has four books released so far. If I am ranking this as a series then it is with out a doubt my #2!


    What other book might you compare At Any Price to and why?

    Too many to list, but my personal favorites are The Crossfire series, The Needing Moore Series, the Fixed Trilogy, The Pearl series, I could go on and on....


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Leigh – was your favorite?

    I would have to say Mia, but Kristen did an excellent job with all of the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to a lot of audiobooks, if fact I am kind of obsessed with them, I will read a book, if I like it then I will order the audiobook and listen while reading the book over and over again. Most of the time it take me a little while to get the narrators voice wrapped around the characters I have pictured in my head, not this time. Kristen did an amazing job right from the beginning bringing all of these characters to life for me. This is truly one of my most favorite series to read and Kristen did not disappoint, in fact, she made it even more perfect.

    "Wow! Just Wow!"

    OMG. I hardly know what to say. Of all the hair brained, crazy ideas the main character, Amelia could have!? Oh, what a disaster this could have been. But, wow! It was a suck you in, snatching your attention kind of read. It was like being a fly on the wall. And, while yes Amelia had some rather ...different ideas, she made sense. Her argument had substance. It almost made me think of how well a paper like that would do in a rhetoric class.
    What to say without giving away anything? Ok, the characters were great. I liked all of them. Fully developed living, breathing, characters. Ms. Aubrey has a way with words. Loved Beauman as well. Totally know some of those all man gay guys. People stereotype them so much. But, there are plenty of Beaumans out there.
    I just loved this book. It was unconventional, witty, well done. Great story. It was a concept that was masterfully crafted to deliver an amazing reading/listening experience.
    And, let's not forget the narrator. Wow! Kirsten Leigh does an AMAZINGLY job of making these characters, their story, their anguish, thoughts, feelings just real. She strapped you in the front row and takes you for a ride.

    Story
    "Very good book!"
    If you could sum up At Any Price in three words, what would they be?

    Very intense, emotional and honorable. The story begins with a young lady who is trying to save her mothers home and put herself through medical school. She is HONORING her mother by taking care of her bills and making sure Mom's stress level is calm so as to not cause a cancer relapse. The EMOTIONAL aspect of this book is expressed through the characters Mia and Adam who meet when he buys her virginity and they embark on a contractual agreement. Adam is a stand up guy despite the fact that he purchased Mia's virtue. He decides that he is going to befriend this girl and help her by saving her virtue and save her from herself. The relationship becomes INTENSE because Mia and Adam fight their feelings for each other.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Adam! He isn't out for sexual gratification. He is attracted to Mia but he puts her needs first.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The one where he and Mia make love for the first time. He swept her away to the carribbean to make it special.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they confessed there love for each other. That is always awesome. He broke down her emotional walls and they developed a true friendship which is the way it should be. However the relationship was tough to get going because of Mia and her inability to accept that she was falling for him. She was just all about the contract and keeping to the rules of it.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought I could predict where the story was going but I was pleasantly surprised that I predicted wrong. I have read enough of this genre and the stories are similar subject matter however each story is still different. That is really quite amazing with as many authors out there!

    "Book hog"

    I loved this book. I was hooked before the the first 10 minutes in finished. I just thought to warn you all that book 2 is a must. However some say it's predictable & it was but it will pull emotions on you. The gammet of them all. From other reviews I found I wasn't alone. Most might not finish book 2. I know this because I struggled with it my self. I encourage you all to get to book 3 which I am now starting because I had strong feelings about the main people. I am hoping beyond hope that I am truly wrong about my opinion of Mia before the end. I have only reviewed 5 times here and only do so when I feel that something needs to be said. Everyone has their trip switch book 2 flipped mine very powerfully. In all you can't do stand alone here. You really have to hear it all. So far book 1 was soooo good top 10 easy for the last 24 months. Book 2 got five stars from me only because I wanted to slap her, but that is for you to decide.

    "Great story but it's a trilogy."
    Would you listen to At Any Price again? Why?

    Yes I will likely listen again. I always feel a little ripped off when I only get a portion of the story for the price of the audible books. I'll likely purchase book 2 and 3 in an ebook format which is way more affordable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of At Any Price?

    Great character building and the story kept me engaged.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Leigh – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed Mia's geeky character, and relate guarding to of the heart.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not a gamer but really enjoyed that aspect of the story.

    Very enjoyable romance novel however the resemblance in the plot, characters etc resembles fifty shades A LOT!

    I will continue to read the series but I sincerely hope it branches away and stands on its own two feet from book 2 on...

    "Predictable bland"

    I couldn't get into this book at all I haven't listened to all of it having fallen asleep whilst listening. I heard a few pages towards the end when I woke up and a prediction I made early on of how the plot was going to spin out was correct so I haven't bothered with the rest. The story wasn't very original and the reasons why the heroine needed to raise money were even more mundane. Is the desire to become a doctor meant to make us feel empathy with a character? This plot line is so old I think it is time for it to be put out to grass. Don't waste precious time on this book unless you are an insomniac.

    Any additional comments?

    Came by this gem of a book purely by accident. Such an unusual story. Loved it. Mia is beautiful, strong and knows her own mind, but is in dire need of finances. Adam is the nerdy, hot, sexy multi millionaire who bids to pay for her virginity. No real surprises, but a lovely story, well written. Both have pasts, both have issues, both need each other. What was meant to be one night together becomes so much more.
