Liz Loves Books

I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.

Make Me Shiver (Just Make Me, #1)

Make Me Shiver (Just Make Me, #1) - Aline Hunter I enjoyed this book for the most part but it is very light BDSM and the characters irritated me just a bit too much for me to love it. The heroine is the more annoying of the leads. She tends to make unfounded assumptions which create Big Misunderstandings and thus the plot moves forward. There are also two female secondary characters who seem destined to be leads in future books in the series. Not sure at this point if I'll read them as one is a Domme (sorry - just not my thing) and the other seems to need psychiatric treatment rather than BDSM and/or romance.What I did like about Make Me Shiver were the love scenes, including the lead up to them. While not all that kinky, they are quite hot. And when the male lead is not having one of his (few) irritating moments, he seems like a genuinely good guy.
