I really enjoyed this novel and its unique interactive element. I had A LOT of fun reading it and would definitely recommend it to friends for something different to read. ~ Under the Covers
This is a review for a book that I’m really excited about! CHOOSE YOUR SHOT is a kinky take on a classic childhood favorite. It’s a “choose your adventure” type novel but of the erotic romance nature. I thought this was such a neat idea and since I can’t give a summary of the book because each story will differ based on what the reader chooses, I decided to do a little play-by-play of my own adventure and give you a little commentary on that instead!
So Tegan is at a new BDSM club Mavericks. It has just reopened and new play things are out and ready to be used. A lot of new and old members are lurking around looking for a playmate for the night, including Tegan!
Tegan finds Eli, a good friend and a great Dom and they decide to play. Here you can choose option 1: sex swing or option 2: rope bondage. I was feeling particularly adventurous so I went with all the kinkest options to choose from – the sex swing.
I was in for a treat because that scene was pretty hot! I do think sometimes the scenes are a little short, but there are some sex scenes where the author takes her time and those for me are my favorites.
After that scene, I decided to leave Eli and play with someone else. Bad girl, I know but it’s my adventure! So too bad! I went down to the dungeon next and slide into Domme mode. (See, I told you I picked the most adventurous option).
Here Tegan gets to play with Adam, a co-worker and well this is where the story takes on a filthier side. You can choose between option 1: strap on and option 2: nipple clamps and paddle. I’ll let you guess which one I chose J
Strap on it is!
I loved this scene. It was sexy and passionate and one of the longer scenes so you were really able to enjoy it without interruptions and more options. After this, I decided to leave Adam and search for Eli (This was where my need for romance arose).
I went back to the rope bondage scene and got another little surprise there! I almost regretted not choose the rope bondage option in the very beginning.
After this, I decided to take Tegan home and you can decide who shows up at your door. I was a little bad and chose Master Grant, just to see how that would pan out. When I realized I didn’t like that ending too much, I backtracked and picked Eli, the one I should have gone with. And because it was my story, I also decided to go back and read Adam and Master Thomas’s ending as well.
All in all, I really enjoyed this novel and its unique interactive element. I had A LOT of fun reading it and would definitely recommend it to friends for something different to read. If this author decides to write more of these type of novels, I will be sure to try them out!

Did you like this review? If so, please tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
