Publisher's Summary

So you want to be a hero?

Millionaire CEO Adam Drake overcame a tortured past to take control of his life and build his own gaming empire. The final piece falls into place with his newfound love for brilliant geek girl blogger Mia Strong. Now Adam is at the top of his game.

Your princess is in another castle.

Then Mia suddenly breaks things off, leaving Adam in the dark. He senses she needs his help but that she's too stubborn or scared to ask. The more he tries to take control, the further she shies away. This is one problem he can't solve by writing a check or a few clever lines of code.

He will have to dig deep and put himself at risk...or else risk losing her forever.

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

Warning: This book ends on a cliffhanger.

first story was wonderful but this one

I became very frustrated throughout the whole book. Unfortunately. It just took forever to learn answers. Gah the characters. They made me frustrated and sad by how stubborn each of them was. Didn't leave me feeling good. In fact is this what a book hangover is? I am neglecting sleep and work to learn what these characters do next.

Nevertheless, the author is very talented and the series is good and I'm continuing on to the next book and I'm bloody determined to get to their HEA. After a nap of course. Then, Hear me roar!

This book wasn't what I expected. I wish I would've went in with some kind of headsup. If you are reading this---here's your headsup--be strong young padawan. May that force be with you.

PS--Narrator was AMAZING. Dude you just rocked.

Could not stop listening!"


Would you listen to At Any Turn again? Why?
I would listen again and again! I fell in love with Adam and Mia, and I cant wait for the next book.

What did you like best about this story?
I loved the way Adam grew as a person. He had always been in control, until Mia.

What about Jason Clarke’s performance did you like?
I loved that Jason had so many different voices for each characters. He brought emotion and angst to the story.

Any additional comments?
This is a great second book in the series. If i had a one issue, it is that things are drawn out. In book 1 it was the sex in book 2 it is the illness and med school. But that does not take away form the book. If you like books that you can relate to, you will love this book. Just a warning this is a cliffhanger.

Book hog

The series so far is excellent. However I don't really know how everyone see Mia. But ***TMI FOR UP COUNT READERS** I think Mia is a real bitch. I feel like Adam took to much crap for all the secrets of she never told Adam but pinned them on him like a pile of bricks. I am going to power through the next book hoping my attitude about her childish ways of screwing over the man that loves her beyond death. IF Adam was my son I would have pushed him out of her life for a immature woman child to screw with his head, heart and soul. I really hope Mia will be the adult she proclaims to be from the start. I live the start of their story. Hated her in this one,&hopes her maturity she spouts out comes to pass. I know my view on this will be seen badly but I have seen girl's who play women mess my 2 of my son's lives up so bad I fear one will never be able to climb out on the other side.

Turn for the worst

What would have made At Any Turn better?

Book 1 was fantastic. So I couldn't wait to listen to this one. But I tortured myself continuing to listen to the dribble that kept coming hoping for a miracle at the end. I call bulls*&t to Mia's behaviour. No matter what could be going on with her doesn't excuse her behaviour with so called loved ones. Not sure what the author was thinking. This book seems to have been unnecessary for the series. Maybe the whole ordeal in this book could have been condensed down into one chapter in book 3.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure I'm wanting to continue with book 3. The narrators are great, but the story just went from bad to worst.

Which character – as performed by Jason Clarke – was your favorite?

Definately not Mia. Adam seemed to be the only adult in this book. Any self respecting adult would treat each other with respect instead of telling someone that they were taking control and running off like a child. Especially knowing some of Adams background history, Mia was being a disrespectful whinging brat.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from At Any Turn?

All of it.

OMG!!!! Great second Book of the series

Adam

I am loving this series!

If you could sum up At Any Turn in three words, what would they be?

Communication skills needed. This story is so good, I am enjoying Adam and Mia but I would say that this couple is so immature emotionally and lack good communication skills. However this doesn't surprise me considering what we have learned about each of the characters pasts. They both have abandonment issues and don't have the ability to trust themselves or each other.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I still love Adam as I stated this in my first review of book 1. Adam is all about Mia. He loves her and wants to take care of her and is trying to predict Mia's needs and wants.

Have you listened to any of Jason Clarke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't believe I have ever listened to Jason before. I think he does an excellent job with Adams voice as well as Mia's. He has a great range of male voices too like Jordan, Heath and Liam. You can tell the difference between voices and characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My first extreme reaction to this book was frustration. However I never lost interest, despite my irritation with these characters, I had to keep listening to see how long the mystery of Mia's behavior and how long her secrets would last. I did tear up while reading/listening to this book because that is a good sign of a good book when an author can move you to tears. When the authors words can be narrated/performed to make you feel the pain of these pages/characters you have a great series. I think that is why I prefer the audible experience over reading a book myself.

Any additional comments?

Again with this book I tried to predict where the author was going to take these characters, Adam and Mia. I had the right details, I just had them in the wrong order of appearance so I was still pleasantly surprised by the events that took place. I am enjoying this series and I can't wait to see where it will go.

Could have been soooooo much better

I liked this story line. It was somewhat original and had very likable characters. HOWEVER, I hate it when really stupid things happen in order to keep the story going. Adam is suppose to be a boy-genius, right? And Mia is suppose to be a medical student? Pfff... Then why are they thinking like five-year-olds? I mean, really? I almost stopped listening, but again, the story line is good and I'd like to know how it all ends. I hope I won't be screaming "you are so stupid! Hello... She's sick you moron!" "Uhm, take the best friend's advice stupid!" while listening to book 3 the way I was with this book. Throughout this entire book, I already knew without a doubt what the big "secret" was... Hopefully, book 3 will be better. Worth the time and credit? I'm still on the fence.

Frustrating read

Although I enjoyed the first book in this series very much, this second book just kept me feeling frustrated throughout the read. Still, it did provoke many "feels" for me which probably means the author was successful in some ways. Jason's performance is always spot on and I'd listen to pretty much anything he narrates. Overall, this cliffhanger ending has me purchasing the last book to see how things end. I'm just hoping it's not going to be another long listen of the whole push-and-pull between Adam and Amelia. Fingers crossed. I'd give this book a B- on the grading scale.

All in for Adam and Mia!

I loved the first book in this series, and immediately had to know more about Adam and Mia. This book was great, and I can now say that I am fully invested in these characters and their love story. Jason Clarke was fabulous as always bringing Adam's POV to life. It was great to get to know his side of the story. This book is full of determination, heartache, and love. I'm looking forward to more from Brenna Aubrey!

Thoroughly put me through the ringer.

This book really frustrated me the push and pull between Adam and Mia had me almost tearing my hair out...lol..and Sometimes I felt so bad for Adam because he was being left in the dark about a secret Mia was hiding from him.
This is the second book and is not a standalone,
Mia and Adam are on again off again in this book.
Jason Clarke is Excellent traversing between male and female characters,I felt every emotion through his telling of the story.Perfect.
I have given this book 5 Stars because now is an excellent,emotional read but I did honestly struggle with it.But I think that is because I am such an emotional reader and tend to get too involved in stories and what characters are going through,so I feel EVERYTHING.Which is a credit to Brenna Aubrey and her phenomenal writing.I
Highly recommend it.

Listen to the audiobook

I don't like a lot of angst and I was afraid that At Any Turn would be a frustrating rollercoaster of relationship drama. Fortunately, it was not. There was a lot of angst, but it was more of a slow build back to the relationship that I found much more tolerable. The book was really well written and includes some creative descriptions for feelings and situations. I liked the touch of Harry Potter humor in what was otherwise an emotional scene.

Jason Clarke is a supremely talented narrator. I love that he creates distinct voices for each of the different people. He brings the characters to life with the way he conveys their emotions. The angst in the book almost seems worth it when you can hear the frustration, the tears and regret spoken in the character's words. The audiobook is very well done, and I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

Superb!

I have loved every word of this second book of Gaming the System. The game of life is becoming even harder and more complex, playing havoc with the lives of Adam and Amelia. Jason Clarke's narration is superb. Empathetic, sensitive, rich. His tone, delivery and ability to tell a story is outstanding. This has been a wonderful listen. 💖💖💖💖💖

Where to start....

This was a well written story, but I do feel it was a little too drawn out... Having figured out what was going on, I actually found myself just getting annoyed with Mia (probably not what I was meant to feel) With only Adams point of view, what was I meant to feel... Maybe this would have been a less frustrating book if we were given both points of view?

The one saving grace for this book was the narration! Jason Clarke is faultless!

If you aren’t afraid of an unhealthy dose of angst

I knew most of book one’s story because I played it in the Chapters app, so I wasn’t afraid to start at book 2. I shouldn’t have worried: there’s enough flashbacks to get the gist of what happened before. It isn’t repetitive though, because book one is written through Emilia’s POV, while book 2 is through Adam’s perspective. You can either read book one first, or not, it doesn’t matter.

It was quite interesting to get only one POV here, because a lot of Emilia’s actions don’t really make sense, so you get to see Adam make mistake after mistake and totally screw up the wonderful relationship he has with Emilia at the beginning of the book. Not the happiest story ever written, but it was somewhat original.

There was some subplot revolving around video games’ impact on weak minds, and the pleasure of online gaming. This part of the series is much more present here than it was in the first book. The gamer in me rejoiced.

As for the narration, Jason Clarke uses a softer voice here, actually is natural voice, and it sounds perfect. He does an amazing job, as always.

If you aren’t afraid of an unhealthy dose of angst, you can try this book, knowing it ends on a cliffhanger.

This book is so emotional

Oh how my heart is breaking. Brenna has written this book so well, I was very annoyed with these characters to begin with but once I realised there was more going on I fell in love with them even more. Excellent narration from Jason.

Irritating!

This could have been an enjoyable story but how irritating was MIA in it. She keeps accusing Adam of having secrets yet she doesn't tell him she has cancer. It was very irritating! I found myself feeling so sorry for Adam.
