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.

Delicate Freakn' Flower (Freakn' Shifters, #1) - Eve Langlais This was pretty good fluff and fun for weekend reading. I wasn't really crazy about the heroine. She's too much in denial for my taste. But the heroes are both very determined and I felt Ms. Langlais did a good job giving them different voices and personalities. I loved the no-nonsense mom as well. There are several brothers who are not really differentiated but I imagine they will each get their own book. My favorite thing about this book was that it included a bear shifter. I usually find them fun and Ethan was no exception. The sex scenes don't overwhelm the story and are well written. There are also a lot of very funny lines. This is nothing ground breaking but it is fun and funny and sexy.
