In this choose-your-own erotic adventure, Taryn, facing the death of her academic dreams, finds herself working at an erotic novelty shop in Florida. There she encounters a range of eccentric customers and learns more about herself (and sexuality) than she ever had in school. Though awkward and fairly inexperienced when it comes to sex, she quickly catches on through the various steamy, raunchy, wild, and playful scenarios that unfold in her workplace—all of which readers can select via footnote directions that dictate the course of the plot. Encounters include an old friend who struck it rich and is treating his jocular posse, a customer convinced he doesn't measure up without herbal assistance and a special technique, and a bashful, burly lumberjack on the hunt for something with frills—who ends up playing a big role in Taryn's erotic education. Angel's writing style is wry, witty, and engaging; readers will chuckle with Taryn's dry observations on the shop's odd happenings and cheer her on as she expands her repertoire. Unfortunately, there are a few rocky moments, including questionable inclusions of terms such as ethnic and midget and Taryn's unsettling assertion that women with degrees and lingerie don't mix.
VERDICT Overall, this laugh-out-loud interactive tale is perfect for readers seeking a lively and enjoyable erotic read.
