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.

The Men with the Golden Cuffs (Masters and Mercenaries)

The Men with the Golden Cuffs - Lexi Blake More cheesey good fun. This was not quite as fun as the first in the series but I still enjoyed it a lot. To get the not-as-fun over with: 1) The love scenes are mostly one on one until later in the book and I .prefer my menage more menagey; and 2) There was a little too much "woe! This will never work! I'll only have this one precious memory to cherish!" going on for my taste. The suspense was well plotted and suspenseful. The love scenes were very hot and both the heroes were very appealing. There's just enough humor to balance the suspense and romance. The heroine manages to be quirky without making me want to toss the book and that's hard to do. I think the author kept the fellow author name dropping reasonably under control considering that the heroine is an erotic suspense menage author. So, overall good sexy fun.
