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.

Marco's Redemption - Lynda Chance Wow hot! Marco's Redemption is a wonderful, smoking hot guilty pleasure.Marco is a Lynda Chance alphahole to the extreme. What made this book more enjoyable for me is that she shows us the underlying vulnerability that makes Marco so insecure and demanding. We see most of this through the heroine's eyes but we are also allowed inside Marco's head just enough to know that what Natalie thinks he feels is really what he feels.There are some scenes where that insecurity and Marco's delight or relief in Natalie's reassurance just killed me. Marco can be horribly gruff and crude but he is often adorable as well. I didn't have quite as much feel for Natalie but she is one of Ms. Chance's stronger heroines.This is by far my favorite Lynda Chance book. If you love her heroes and stories you will really love this one.
