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.
The concept of this book was certainly intriguing. After I suspended my disbelief that someone would auction off their virginity online to a complete stranger, the book was funny and and the relationship was swoon worthy. The geeky gamer culture was amazing to read about, I’m not an avid gamer but I still enjoy a game or two and so love that this culture was represented in a novel. Mia is also a blogger and therefore had a special place in my heart. The ups and downs of Mia and Adam’s relationship almost gave me motion sickness. As motives were revealed and both Mia and Adam’s personal lives were hashed out they became much more loveable. Overall, a tumultuous relationship which began with an auction.
