Description from Publisher:

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?

 This novel is the third and final book in Adam and Mia's trilogy, but they will be featured in future Gaming the System novels.

My Rating:
Sexiness Rating:
The last of 3 stories about Mia and Adam. The arc over the 3 stories is fantastic and is a true love story that takes things deeper than just romance. The first has a Happily Ever After, but the second and third are "What Happens After." Especially considering how young Emilia is in the first book, I thought it was so very well done how this book, the third, really solidified their love for one another.

I can't help but feel that this is a trilogy that is almost Nicholas Sparks-like in its depth, but with a delicious amount of sexiness.

The amount of detail and weight given to Emilia's cancer treatments, as well as the decisions she and Adam make, makes it so vivid. You are filled with so many feelings and I, at least, couldn't help but become their cheerleader.

The side characters get even more of a spotlight in this one, and I really enjoyed what they all brought to the story. The dual POV of Mia and then Adam was perfectly executed.

If you are looking for more light-hearted romance, stop at the end of the first book. But if you want to see just how strong Mia and Adam's love is, keep riding the rollercoaster to the end. It is not an easy ride, but it's worth every tear, every frustration, and every question. Unlike the first two books, there are no more secrets here - just two people trying to heal - physically, emotionally, and as a couple.

Brenna Aubrey proves that she really does write stories of true love with this series.
