My Thoughts:Do you remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books we all read—and loved—as kids? Well…Pocket Star—a digital imprint of Simon and Schuster—has released an adult version, Charlotte: Prowling for Enchantment by Mima—and I kind of loved it, too—and it’s available at the click of a button.
After the death of her grandmother, Charlotte decides to live a little by taking a cruise, although she never realized that it was a cruise for fantastical creatures—or that she was one of them—until she meets two attractive men that have the ability to rock her world.
With eleven endings, some that will please your HEA fantasies and some that left me a tad disappointed—and numerous ways to get there, each as entertaining and naughty as the one before—Charlotte: Prowling for Enchantment was definitely a fun and funky weekend adult read laced with paranormal mayhem.
Although this book was erotic, it wasn’t over the top, so those of you who are newbies to the erotic genre won’t feel so overwhelmed.
I was a bit conflicted when rating this book. I loved some of the pathways that the book took, and some not so much, but that’s the fun thing with choose your own adventure books, if you don’t like the ending pick a new one. While I liked the characters—most of them—some of the paranormal aspects were a little far out there and a little over played.
Overall: It was a fun weekend adventure and depending on the paths that you choose, could be a novella or becomes a full novel.
Will I read more of these Daring to Decide books? I do believe so! And this book will make a great e-gift!
