Review: Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda by Tara Lee Reed

untitled (21)Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda by Tara Lee Reed

“The End” is Only the Beginning.

Elle Masters is over dating. It used to be fun: the drama, the angst, the exhilarating beginnings, the bittersweet middles, the blowout endings. Then the tears, hangovers, rebounds, and another addition to the shoebox of memories in her closet. Now Elle can’t remember the last time a guy made his way into her box.

When her friends Rachel and Valerie insist she snap out of her post-breakup funk with a girls’ night out/rebound hunt at a San Francisco bar, Elle isn’t expecting tall, dark, and hummuna-hummuna, Nick Wright. This is no rebound guy. He’s definitely, maybe, The One.

In Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda, the interactive romantic comedy where you direct the plot, you play Elle as she and her pals put the “antics” in “romantics.” Get ready to question everything you thought you knew about love, over-analyzing and second-guessing your way through hundreds of modern dating dilemmas and passionate predicaments. Will you accept a last minute date? Freak out if Nick wants space? Be the first to use the ‘L’ word? Live in sin? Or hold out for a ring? Wait, do you even want a ring?

With 60 good, bad and inexplicable endings, you’ll always have another second chance at love with Mr. Wright.”


“Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda” is a unique take on a traditional chick-lit book. It is written as a choice your own adventure style- so the possibilities are endless.

So far, I have read this book at least 10 times and have had 10 different outcomes. I can not remember when I was so excited by reading a book before.

Written in the impossible second person- Tara Lee Reid pulls it off with style. I really loved the contemporary Bridget Jones like feel to the book.

This book can be read over and over and it never looses its charm. It is the perfect holiday read because it never stops entertaining.

I highly recommend this book just because it is so different. Tara Lee Reid pulled off a speculative style of writing with humour, wit and realistic events. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
