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.

Caressed by Ice (Psy-Changeling Series #3)

Caressed By Ice - Nalini Singh Had to think about this one for a few days before I felt ready to write a review. I also changed my rating from 4 stars to 5 after thinking about this book for a bit. I've liked all of the first three books of this series but this is the one that's stayed with me the most. I really like both Judd and Brenna's determination, even when that very determination is what's keeping them apart. I was also impressed that at book 3 of the series Singh is still developing and adding layers to the Psy-Chageling world. Her world building is some of the best I've come across and this is the book that cemented that for me. It was also a nice change up to have the hero be the Psy and the heroine be the changeling. Singh doesn't allow herself to get too stuck in a patterns when it comes to characterization. Overall this is one of my favorite books in quite a while.
