Gaming the System, Book 3

It’s Dangerous to Go Alone!

Mia Strong never expected to be deciding the rest of her life at age twenty-two. Is she willing to become a human lab rat? Does she need to write a will? Does she ever want a family–and if so, with whom? She can’t dodge the tough questions–not if she plans to live to see twenty-three. With her life hanging in the balance, Mia wants nothing more than to rely on Adam Drake, but he’s hurt her before.

You Must Gather Your Party Before Venturing Forth…

Adam Drake knows that he’s made mistakes, but when he discovers what Mia’s facing, he realizes how much those mistakes could cost him. Now he has to choose between being the man who can save Mia’s life or the man she can love. No matter how much it tears him apart, Adam knows he has to put Mia first…even if it means he’s out of the picture entirely.

Will their love survive this epic battle or is it game over?

Listen to the first chapter.

What the Critics Say

“Aubrey has a rare ability to deftly blend intelligent characters, nail-biting sexual tension and heart searing emotion, in a way that will have you swiping through the pages as fast as you possibly can. Good luck putting one of her books down!” ~ Natasha Boyd, award-winning author of the International bestseller Eversea: a love story.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better ending to Adam & Mia’s story. This has been a beautiful final part, and an amazing series. One of my favourite series in a long while. With shocks, tears, incredible hot scenes and sigh-worthy moments to please every romantic fiction lover.” ~ Seraphim Book Reviews

“This heart wrenching, beautiful story will consume you. I was emotionally invested in this story. We do not realize the depth of Adam and Mia’s love until this book. Yes they were two people destined to fall in love, when love was anything but expected or wanted…It defeats them. Their love has no end, because it always endures. Always.”~ BiblioBelles Book Blog

“This book will leave you struggling through all the emotions known to man and trust me it is worth it. This was the perfect ending to a wonderful trilogy…I highly recommend that you pick this one up today!” ~ Summer’s Book Blog

“All in all, Brenna Aubrey brings Adam and Mia’s trilogy into an amazing conclusion. Adam and Mia’s journey is not always rainbows and butterflies…but it’s one heck of an adventure all the same.” ~ Between the Pages Book Blog

Read an Excerpt

And after spending over half an hour with my eyes closed, my head resting against a waterproof cushion, I heard steps in the doorway.

“Have you shriveled up like an old lady yet?”

“You should try it before you knock it.”

“Hmm. So many things I could do with that.”

“When was the last time you took a bath?”

“I have no idea. I can’t even think of a time I’ve taken a bath since I was a little kid.”

I turned around and looked at Adam. “Are you shitting me? Seriously?”

“I’m seriously not shitting you.”

“Then strip and get in here.”

“Hmm. How do I know you aren’t just using this bath as an excuse to get me naked?”

I laughed. “Well, that’s not beyond the realm of plausibility. But until you’ve enjoyed the true luxury of soaking in bubbles, you can never understand.”

“I’m just having a lot of fun standing here watching you enjoy it.”

“Hmm. That sounds kinda pervy. I like that.”

“I do have a pervy streak.”

“I already knew that. Well, get over here and make yourself useful, then. I need my back scrubbed.”

He took a step forward and I glanced down, noting that the bubbles had mostly flattened after I’d been in the tub so long and, thus, were no longer covering my breasts.

“Wait! Turn around, please.”

He froze. I could see his surprised profile in the mirror as I reached out, grabbed a small hand towel and draped it over the upper half of my body. He turned around, his features blank.

“Okay, I’m good,” I said, leaning forward. With a little hesitation, he approached again.

“There’s some soap over there, and a washcloth…”

“As you wish, my lady.”

I laughed, amused by the Princess Bride reference. I adjusted the towel against me and said in my best imitation of an English accent. “Farm boy, wet the cloth and wash my back. Every bit of it—please.”

He did as I asked with a quiet, “As you wish.”

He used the towel at first, then his hands were on my back, sliding over my soapy skin. I let out a long breath, tantalized by the feel of his hands on me, even if just to clean me. After massaging my shoulder blades, along my spine and down to the small of my back below the waterline, he rinsed the washcloth and rubbed it over me again.

“Farm boy, don’t forget my neck.”

“As you wish,” he repeated, but instead of washing it, he kissed it. I tilted my head, giving him access to more as tingling energy sluiced through me. My body was alive and coursing with lust from his touch in under five short minutes.
