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.

See Me

See Me - Pauline Allan I enjoyed See Me. It has a somewhat different premise than a lot of romances with a little suspense I've been reading lately. The heroine is a successful business woman and the hero is an ex-con who's done his time and is working on getting his life together. They have nice chemistry together and some really good sexy scenes. It's a bbw romance as well as romantic suspense and I felt like the bbw aspects were handled well. The only thing that could have been a bit better was the suspense story. It's not badly written, it's just becoming a tired theme in romantic suspense, at least for me. It's the former-husband/boyfriend stalker plot. I like the secondary characters as well as the hero and heroine. The writing is a bit simplistic, but it's a good story with likeable characters.
