Product Description

Be the star of six fun and twisted little romance stories. Explore the playfulness, action, and sudden mortal danger of these adventures with built-in hyperlinks where you choose the direction the stories take. Thirty-five possible endings, but only a few will be a happily ever after. Can you find them?

"For a well-written, light-hearted distraction from the annoyances of flying or watching your kid’s Little League game, this gamebook may well be your next best friend." - Lauri J. Owen, Critique de Book

This gamebook's six stories include:

"Meeting the Barbarian" - You've lived inside the ground for as long as you can remember.

"The Lifeguard" - You're riding a bicycle down a beach trail when disaster strikes.

"Blood Rock" - You're rock climbing when you encounter a creature from a nightmare... or a fantasy?

"Luck in Love" - Con man or policeman? Your luck in love is about to change.

"Baxter and Bunny" - The love of your life dumps you for a blond receptionist named "Bunny."

"Unfamiliar Ground" - You're a mermaid lured to the shore by a powerful impulse.

Gamebook Directions: When choices are presented to you, touch the 5-WAY CONTROLLER button on your Kindle to select your desired choice. If you change your mind and wish to make a different choice, touch the BACK button (not the Previous Page button) to go back to your previous location.

New edition includes a 1,600-word excerpt from romance novel Thrill of the Chase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun concept for a romance! Oct. 29 2011
By Lauren Hidden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
When Ms. Crooks asked if I'd be willing to review this book, I was intrigued so of course I said yes. It reminded me of those sci fi "choose your own ending" books from my youth where you'd need to decide if you wanted to stay on earth and wave goodbye to the alien or get in a spaceship and blast off with your little green friend. I really wasn't sure how this would work for an adult audience and especially for a romance. I also wondered how easy it would be to maneuver between choices in the Kindle format.

It didn't take me long to finish this book (approximately an hour and a quarter) but maybe that's because I didn't make all the right choices. I did not read every possible storyline even though this was for review because I wanted to read it as an average reader might. I found a few of the characters in some of the stories seemed a bit flat and the stories were often lacking enough romantic suspense for my liking. I was drawn to the strong mystery angle to some of the stories, which actually drew me in more than the romance aspect. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and it was fun to see where my choices took me. (I didn't always make the "right" ones.) I'd like to see Ms. Crooks write more of these. I wonder if she could create a more satisfying read by including fewer stories and making them longer-giving more time to build the intrigue and develop the romantic suspense between the characters. I'd suggest maybe just one or two stories for the whole book with multiple choices that could veer you off the "right" path and then back on again with a few dead ends along the way of course.

I was really wary of how this would work on a Kindle (I have a Kindle 2) but was pleasantly surprised in how easy it was to pick the choice I wanted. I could jump immediately to that section and then go back to make a different choice with just a few buttons.

I give this book 4 stars. It wasn't perfect, but it was refreshingly different and a lot of fun to read. I'm looking forward to her next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute romance stories! Aug. 25 2012

I was a little nervous about how this might work on my Kindle but it turned out fine. While they were all fun stories, I particularly liked the one with the mermaid. Getting to pick the different paths reminded me of the choose your own adventure books I read as a kid, but with cute romance stories. Really liked it!

This is kinda like the choose your own adventure books I used to read as a kid. Its fun to see what could go wrong, which you wouldn't normally see in a regular romance. You get to explore the what ifs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing March 13 2012
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this because it reminded me of the choose your own adventure books from my youth. It has about the same depth, so don't expect to get wrapped up in the characters. 4 stars because it was great entertainment for work lunch, it was a short read.
1.0 out of 5 stars Too stupid for words Sept. 21 2013
By Artemis Lynn - Published on Amazon.com

It was always obvious what was the "best" ending. The storyline for the best ending was not romantic or even interesting. The other endings required you to make really dumb choices to see them, and reading the stories was boring. It was also very short.
