Well, my first 2 months foray into self-publishing is coming to a close, and I think I'll be letting this blog lapse, as I've said what I need to say about the project. I've been lucky enough to collect some reviews from readers and bloggers. Here's highlights of what they're saying, with links to the full:

Frida Fantastic "It’s a fast-paced adventure and I was at the edge of my seat the entire time. ...I really liked Becca as a protagonist. She’s an ambitious, capable, and passionate woman, and I was invested in her by the time I was confronted with the first choice. All the available options are valid and there are no obvious answers. There are just risky choices and less risky choices, but some pay off while others kill off."

Kyrias on Lauren: "I had a ton of fun even when I sat there, mouth agape, whining: “But I didn’t intend for that to happen!”"

angel Thoughts "It kept me on my toes and had me wondering just what poor Charlotte had gotten herself into when she decided to take a cruise. ... If you like the anticipation and not knowing what will happen, then this book will make you dance with glee."

Goodreads Sarah on the Trilogy: "For the amount it cost, it was certainly good value and I would definitely get it again. ...I have to say, each of the three books were extremely enjoyable."

All Romance willowlox: "Becca was a fun read. It's just like the old choose your own adventure books, only sexy! I could wind my way thru the scifi picking the plot twists I wanted for Becca."

Amazon Kara: "I just read this whole series, and it was a lot of fun. It's been many, many years since a read a choose your own adventure style book, and it was great reading an adult version. Once I read through to my first ending, I loved going back and exploring all the other possibilities and making sure I'd seen every ending. I appreciated that not each story line ended happily, and sometimes stupid decisions led to ugly consequences."

B&N Geekgoddess on Becca: "It was a quick, fun read full of danger and adventure, and I could never quite guess what was going to happen next. There was one scene in particular I encountered that I found especially hot because I was so totally not expecting it."
