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.

Hot Island Nights (Harlequin Blaze)

Hot Island Nights (Harlequin Blaze) - Sarah Mayberry Not as good as most of the Superromances I've read by this author but still quite good. My main gripe is that there's no real transition between the lead characters' superficial fling and their sharing intimate details of their lives. But other than that one thing I though this was very good. As is usual in Mayberry's books the characters are genuine with realistic faults and problems. The secondary characters are also realistic and three dimensional and even the "bad guys" are really good people with flaws. This one's a little more over the top but it's a Blaze so I would expect that. There is an awful lot of passion here and several very hot loves scenes. Overall I enjoyed this and I'll definitely read the companion book.
