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.

Into the Crossfire (Protectors Series #1)

Into the Crossfire - Lisa Marie Rice I liked this quite a bit better than the first book I read by this author and I'm glad I gave her another chance. The love scenes are abundant and very hot though I did worry a bit about the hero's health since he seemed to be permanently aroused. I think that may just be the author style. The suspense plot was okay. It's current and moves pretty well. I was happy to find it didn't have as many problems as the first book I read by Ms. Rice had (such as the villain's name changing mid-book). Overall I enjoyed this and I'll likely read the rest of the series as I like the characters.
