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.

Dark Gold (The Carpathians (Dark) Series, Book 3)

Dark Gold - Christine Feehan Dark Gold is okay but not as good as the previous two books in the series. Both Aidan and Alexandra seemed a little flat to me and I never fully bought their relationship. It certainly did not have the intensity of the previous two. There was a bit more humor, which was nice but little suspense. Also, I don't care for young children in romance stories, and Alexandra's little brother Joshua was an especially annoying version of a romance novel kid. Fortunately, he doesn't completely dominate the book. Overall this didn't put me off on the series but I can't see myself re-reading it.
