Did you ever read those Choose Your Own Adventure books growing up? I did, I loved them. I liked being able to make a choice and have the actions of that choice reflected in the story. I also enjoyed that I could read through a few more times to get a different experience. Seeing an erotica version of this...well, I was excited.
A couple of years ago I read an adult chose your own adventure book. It was with zombies. It was called Infected by James Schannep. It was great, we read it as a family - debating the different options. It had some world build and some character development and was a real story, where your choices matter and you learn the best way to survive.
Unfortunately, Fetish Fair lacked those key items.
I read through a handful of different story variations in all of about an hour. It's an extremely simply told lack-luster adventure. I didn't feel any connection or excitement from this book. At all. It should have been fun, it's a BDSM convention, after all. But it wasn't... It was entirely to basic. I went here, he spanked me, he stuck his cock in, I came, the end.
