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.

Bound - Sophie Oak I can always count on Sophie Oak for humor, great world building, well developed characters and super hot kinky sex. She came through for me again with Bound. The world building here is much more complex than in her earth-bound contemporaries. She's created several different planes of existence with different "rules" and characters jumping between them. And it works. It's also hilarious in places. And sexy. Oh so sexy! There are plentiful, explicit and sometimes-kinky love scenes throughout that work well for both characterization and to move the story along. The plot has just enough suspense and while it's as over the top as the Bliss books Ms. Oak is able to make over the top work. This is a fun and very sexy fantasy erotic romance with just a bit of kink.
