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.

Forgotten Mistress, Secret Love-Child (Regally Wed) - Annie West Plain Jane + Italian billionaire tycoon with a side helping of amnesia. There is a baby but not really a secret one and little in the way of groveling but I don't think much was necessary. She accused him, he accused her and in the heat of the moment says go, she flounces, he chases her and has a car wreck and blam - amnesia. They were both wrong and both end up apologizing a little. I was in the mood for some quick sexy angst and this worked quite well for that. Funny thing - after the standard forced marriage so the secret baby will have two parents, the kid is turned over to caters for almost the entire rest of the story. I didn't mind but I did find it odd.
