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.

I hear the story I hear what he is like but omg this is a selfish girl no matter what he says the truth is there if she moves they are apart unless he moves everything? I don't see or feel that Mia gives a dam the outcome would be the same no matter where she learnt but one would cost him........wish he would move on to someone who had there future in mind cya Mia have a nice life l is for loser
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, can't wait for the third.
Lovely to hear a man's perspective, not just a boring millionaire/ billionaire storyline about sex and money
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.
"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.
"frustrating but very emotional. excellent narrator"
Great story line, superb narration. can't wait to finish with book 3 now. highly recommended
"Turn for the worst"
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.
Not sure I'm wanting to continue with book 3. The narrators are great, but the story just went from bad to worst.
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.
All of it.
"OMG!!!! Great second Book of the series"
Adam, he is strong and giving and far more forgiving than any man in any story...
for sure!!!! YES, I stayed up till 3am trying to get ta a part I could leave the story and pick it up the next day......
This is turning out to be one of my favorite series.....
"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 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.
"I've never been so exasperated with a character"
Gaming the System series has certainly invoked a myriad of emotions thus provoking my overwhelming need to express my feelings of frustration....
About Midway through book 1 At any Price I found myself rapidly growing more and more irritated with Emilia's antics. So much so that I often caught myself silently and sometimes not so silently chastising her behaviors. Now slightly better than three quarters through book 2 it comes as no surprise too find that my frustrations towards Emilia have risen exponentially and I contine too vehemently scold nearly every word, thought and/or action from Emilia. Actually the truth be told I'm just down right pissed off at the both of them. Suffice it too say that at this point very little would render me a greater satisfaction than to reach out to Adam and say simply...for the love of god man will you please toss that whiny selfish and self absorbed little adolescent brat to the curb! I want Adam too declare enough is enough! I want too see him as pissed as hell for all the blatant disregard to his feeling. The ability to handle lifes greatest adversities with grace and poise would lend some much needed credibility to Emilia's character.
Finishing this book has now become a test of sheer willpower due in large part too my escalating animosity and complete exasperation in Emilia. Someone please reassure me that Adam receives some small amount of vindication and there is indeed a HEA ending sooner rather then later in the final book.
"Frustrating and depressing!"
I found the character of Mia to be one of the most frustrating characters I've ever listened to. The story line takes a turn halfway through and becomes dark and depressing. I did finish book 2 and decided not to continue on to book 3. I wanted to listen to something light and uplifting not dark and depressing! listener beware.
I wanted to shake Mia. She was so frustrating in this book. I think I only finished this book to find out what was going on because Mia made me turn off the book more than once. In the end, it was a good book. Moving on to book 3.
