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.

The Billionaire Boss's Forbidden Mistress - Miranda Lee This was an okay book but something about this author's style didn't really work for me. It felt both dated and overly formal. I don't believe the culture difference is the problem as I've enjoyed many others books by Australasian authors.I did like both the lead and secondary characters very much. the leads are a little frustrating but they are both grieving so it is understandable. The story is also pretty good. It is a sweet story of two people who are hurting finding strength and the ability to love again in each other. If not for some stilted phrasing and strange-to-me word choices I think it might have been a favorite.
