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.

Tasting Candy (The Vaughn Series)

Tasting Candy  - Anne Rainey Short, very explicit and scorching hot (that applies to all four books in this series). Despite the great sex scenes and the hero's likeability, this book, out of all of this series, unfortunately suffers from an unbelievable plot. Skittish Candice has been date raped. This was her first and only sexual experience before her one date with the hero. I can't belive that she went from afraid to be kissed and having panic attacks just from men talking to her to begging to screwed in one night, on their first date. Sorry, no. If you ignore the plot problems, though, it's a fun read.
