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.

Jane and the Sneaky Dom - Hannah Murray This was cute, fun and funny and for the most part iliked it. It is very light, playful BDSM. Very much sugarkink. Both the hero and heroine are very likeable. There's little angst or even drama but that works well with the playful nature of the book. There were two things that hugged me a bit: Jane is perhaps not as cautious as I think women need to be and there is some unprotected sex. But these were offset by one very nice thing that is rarely seen in romance novels: Jane and Ian actually talk things through like real adults. I loved that.The love scenes are nice and hot though only mildly kinky. And they are fun. The secondary characters are fun and funny too and I'm hoping there's a sequel involving a couple of them.
