Before I begin, I would like to thank Brenna Aubrey and her team for sending me an arc of Take Any Chance, in exchange for a fair and honest review.


I love the Gaming the System series, for many reasons.

Besides it being a well-written romance, and sexy, it's unique.

I mean, it has the obvious tropes that we all know and love, but all the characters and storylines feel so fresh.

That doesn't change with Take Any Chance.

While I don't love a pregnancy trope, I enjoyed the refreshing take on it in this book.

For Adam and Mia, nothing is ever black and white. It's not as easy as just jumping in, and I liked the decision to have a child wasn't as easy as saying "let's do it."

And not just the obvious one - Mia's health. Afterall, her overall arc, being diagnosed with breast cancer so young, means realistically, there would be many concerns over introducing the hormones one needs to have a baby. I like that this was a concern, and her past storyline wasn't ignored.

Another thing I absolutely enjoyed was Adam's struggle with making a decision on having a child. Adam is one of the few characters that have unresolved trauma from his childhood - and it bleeds into his adult life. Of course with his upbringing, he would struggle with the idea of bringing a child into the world. His concerns over being a good father, along with the anxiety of Mia putting her health at possible risk after watching her almost die - his struggles felt realistic. The best part though was that his character finally felt like it came full circle.

Romantically, I enjoyed Brenna adding to Adam and Mia's story. They felt solid as ever. Even with Adam dragging his heels about adding a child to their family, the mutual respect between them was one of the things I love about them as a couple.

It's what love is.

Mutual respect, patience, and understanding.


While I don't enjoy reading about pregnancy - as someone who has had difficult pregnancies in the past it's just one of my triggers - I didn't dislike Take Any Chance. Brenna did a good job writing a story that, yes, centered around pregnancy, it was so much more than that. Bringing a human being into the world isn't simple, and it wasn't written that way. I'm thrilled that Adam and Mia get their happily ever after - and that we will see them from time to time in Brenna's new series coming up (which, spoiler alert, is already seeming just as unique and interesting as this series was).


Take Any Chance is out April 30th, 2024!
