Wow. This is pretty wild. It's like the old Choose your Adventure books. You get to pick how you want Chloe to react, you choose that repose, click the link for it, and off the story goes. Fun!! ...more

TOXIC LOVE
By: Jax Garren

* I received a free copy of this book from www.netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.*

This is a unique book. It is published by SilkWords. "Silkwords is the go-to source for interactive women's fiction."

This book is like the choose-your-own-adventure stories that I remember reading as a kid. The introduction at the beginning of the book describes it best.

"Blurring the line between fiction and gaming, SilkWords offers quality romance and erotica that allows indi

Toxic Love is an awesome "pick your path" novella.

I have to admit that I HATE novellas. I usually end up not connecting with the characters and finding very little world and character development. That was not the case with Toxic Love. I fell in love with the characters and really enjoyed creating their stories.

I fell in love with the Jax's writing with her Tales of the Underlight series. When I noticed that she wrote a "pick your path" story I knew I had to read it. There have been many times

TOXIC LOVE is a "Choose Your Own Adventure" type story. At the beginning, we meet Chloe Parikh, an actress on a temporary work visa in Las Vegas. Only a few years old when the Tox75 poison was released, Chloe hasn't been outside in twenty years. When her helmet is cracked while skydiving to her new job in Vegas, Chloe discovers that she is one of a very small percentage immune to Tox75. Contacted by GenFriends, Chloe is given the opportunity to receive a permanent visa that would allow her to st ...more

A choose-your-own-adventure erotica with an intriguing premise: in a world devastated by war, the lead character—who wants to be an famous actress, of course—is found to be immune to the gas that killed off so many people. This will make her very rich, if she’s okay with becoming a baby factory to make more immune humans. She falls in love with one of the immune guys just at the time he’s tired of having to sleep around.
There’s some great ideas here, especially the main one, but the writing, de

Toxic Love
As an independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock, I rate Toxic Love with 5 fangs.

When GenFriends finds out about her ability to breathe the poisoned air, they offer her a life of luxury and ease if she will agree to have babies with a man that also has the ability to breathe. She is

This was awesome! A pick your own adventure novella set during a toxic time for america. Lots of people died and do die when they are exposed to the air. In Las Vegas a company called Gen Friends is taking those who are immune to the toxic air and setting them up in a life of luxury as long as they agreed to be apart of their breeding program to make a world of those who are immune to the toxic air.

I enjoyed the writing style of this author and also the story itself. The main characters are actually pretty well fleshed out considering the length of the story itself.

I found the 'direct your own storyline' idea fun, however, the story itself felt very rushed and incomplete. When I got to the end of the story I was a bit surprised at how suddenly the story stopped.

The development of the dystopian world in the book was much more thought out than the story of the characters in the book which

This was a lot of fun. I used to love choose your own adventure stories as a child so was instantly curious about this story when I saw it. This is just like those children's books, but for adults with a really cool sci-fi/dystopian spin. I really enjoyed Chloe and as I said it was a lot of fun being in control of her storyline because of the choices I made. I went back and changed my choices so I could read thro

Eeeek! I liked this style of story, and what a surprise it was too!

This was a cool Novella to read. I rarely read novellas as I cannot connect with the characters as quickly as the books usually you require you to. This book however was a great concept that i've not seen in so long....''choose your own path''. The links you had to click to read the novella were fun and quirky!

Really liked this book. It puts the book within your own perspective and opens up so much for the reader. I truly loved these types of books and now that they come in adult formats I love them even more. This book is about a young woman that is fighting to keep what little hope she has but also finds that her ability to be immune to the now toxic air outside is now opening up so many doors for her and where it leads is totally up to the reader!!

This was a new experience. I never read a game book back in the day, so this was the first time for me with a branched book.
The first reaction: PANIC! Oh my God, what do I choose??? I'm not used to decide what the heroine must do!!!
The final reaction: total satisfaction. I loved it!!! It was so funny. I reread it al last 5 times.

This is a very quick and interesting book. You get to decide how the story develops and what happens in the end by deciding on certain outcomes. Great fun but a little too short. I would have loved more of the story.
