Read full description of the books Love Him Not:Are you an expert at the game of love? Find out in Love Him Not, an interactive unromantic comedy where YOU become the protagonist. As Elle Masters, you'll navigate hundreds of familiar dating dilemmas and passionate predicaments inspired by popular advice books and modern romance. Each choice is more complicated than the last, and the stakes are raised with each turn of the page, but you’ll have backup from Elle’s best friends, Rachel and Valerie, who put the “antics” in “romantics.”
With 60 endings ranging from "I don't know what happened!" to “I do,” don't be surprised if art imitates life and you throw this book across the room… only to pick it up and try again. One more time. Because, unlike real life, when you don't like the outcome, you can go back to a pivotal moment and explore the path not taken, or even start over at the beginning.
BUYER BEWARE: Happily Ever Afters are hard to come by in Love Him Not. In fact, most of them are flat out unhappy. Still, with persistence, you might find one or two endings that downright satisfy - even if it means Elle drives off into the sunset alone.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT READING THIS BOOK!
This book is nonlinear, meaning you don’t read it from cover to cover -- unless you want to wind up in a rom-com directed by Quentin Tarantino (which could be kind of epic). More importantly, it’s written using the second person -- BUT you’re not YOU anymore. See, Love Him Not is as much a game as it is a book. A role-playing game where you embody a character. THE character. The lead -- Elle Masters!
As Elle, you’ll make hundreds of choices about your burgeoning relationship with Nick Wright. (He’s the guy. Maybe THE guy.) Be they simple decisions, complicated decisions, or sexy decisions, as Elle, you’ll experience the outcomes of your choices, good, bad and downright ugly. Along the way, you’ll encounter 60 different endings. WARNING: Most of them are unhappy -- snotty tissues, incoherent rambling, fist-shaking, whatever happened to feminism, throw this book across the room in protest unhappy. But once you dust off the jacket/tape together your screen and try again, you’ll hopefully have some laughs, take some chances, and find an ending or two that downright satisfies -- even if it means Elle winds up, gasp, alone.
We rarely admit it, but we all seek outside perspective on our love lives, be it from friends or magazines or books. I have -- it’s what inspired this novel. And while Love Him Not is founded in oodles of popular dating advice books, video games, and good ol’ cultural observation, it’s important to state clearly: THIS IS NOT AN ADVICE BOOK. I am certainly not a dating expert. There are no “wrong” or “right” choices, nor hidden moral meanings from the author, and no judgment toward you (or Elle). The only thing I’d judge you for is not soaking up a chance to break every rule, verbalized, institutionalised, or otherwise, without real-life penalty.
You personally may not like each option put in front of Elle. Some choices may seem obvious, others ridiculous, and some outcomes cliche or unfair. That sounds like modern romance to me -- a battlefield of over-analyzing and second-guessing, selfish and well-intentioned mistakes, missed opportunities and misunderstandings, unbalanced compromises, disappointments, and heartbreaks. Of course, often followed by looking back with confusion, frustration, and ire, while somehow skirting our fair share of any blame. Which reminds me...
ON MR. WRIGHT.
Every so often, you’re gonna hate Nick -- when you don’t love him and want to jump his bones. With no view into his world, you're left to make assumptions about what he does, why he does it, and who he does it with, which may make it occasionally tempting to write him off as Mr. Wrong. But remember, just as Rachel, Valerie, and the media influence Elle’s not-always-stellar choices, Nick, too, has unseen pals and men’s magazines who get into his head and relationships, so try not to be too hard on him. And should you find yourself carrying around negative Nick feels, just remember that every time you start over at the beginning, or double-back and switch directions, you change time! That makes holding a grudge against Nick like being mad at him for something he did in a dream. If there's ever a time to forgive and forget, it's while reading a book that cannot impact your real-world life. Speaking of which...
She’s a gal you’ll hopefully empathize with. She’s got a good heart, a good sense of humour, and as good a sense of self as any of us do in our 20s. However, she's not always confident navigating a courtship with a guy she really likes, let alone one who could be the missing link between Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill. Like anyone trying to hang on to that kind of perfection, Elle will occasionally be faced with opportunities that are less “Tell our kids about this someday,” and more, “Tell no one. Ever!” I know, because I put them there. The same way I know she’s only headed down the road to scandal if YOU (in this instance you’re still you) set her on the path! Something to chew on when you find yourself still holding a grudge against Nick for past timelines, even after we had that great talk. (Let it go.)
BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?
It’s simple: start the story as you would any other, reading until you’re presented with your first dilemma! Decide between the two options offered and advance to the appropriate SECTION number (NOT PAGE number) where you'll see what you’ve gotten Elle into -- or out of. And so it goes. Until you die. Well, you won’t “die,” but your relationship will. (See “throw book” above.) But then you get dozens of chances to do it over again!
For maximum heartache, track your progress as you go so you don’t miss a single choice or ending. You can dog ear each section OR visit www.Doorflower.com for a printable ‘Heart-A-Track’ sheet that lets you cross off each section as you go. While you’re there, get a copy of the ‘Love Him Not “Happy” Endings Map’ in case you want to skip the trials and head straight to the fibrillations!
Read information about the authorTara K. Reed is the accidental writer from Toronto, Canada, not that chick from Sharknado. When her career in public relations was forced into hiatus by a jerky plot twist, she wrote her first interactive novel. She's currently developing an alternative history series, featuring England's most notorious monarchs.
She was voted Most Sarcastic Female at her high school prom, which she went to alone. (Not that she thinks about it.) She can fit her whole fist in her mouth (which makes the prom thing surprising), and she can sing with her mouth closed, but she can't do both at the same time. She once appeared on a romance novel cover with her longtime partner.
