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.

Mistress of the Groom

Mistress Of The Groom (Scandals!) (Harlequin Presents) - Susan Napier This was one of the better Harlequin Presents I've read. The hero and heroine have a love/hate thing going that the author reveals mainly through a rather intense series of actions and wickedly pointed dialogue. The hate part almost went on too long but it turns around just in the nick of time. If you're looking for a thrill-ride type of romance, Mistress of the Groom works very well. But if you're in need of something gentle and sweet, I'd put this one off for a bit. But just a bit because it's hot and sexy and angsty and very good.
