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.

His Submissive - Reese Gabriel I did finish this book. It was a struggle. This never changed:These people are like the BDSM version of that couple you really don't want to hang out with any more because they bicker constantly. They're both hot & cold. He sucks at communicating and doesn't have a handle on his emotions. Not a good thing in a Dom. The sex is super hot.Near the end of the book, the heroine says this about herself: "I really don't know why you want me. I'm a mess. Hot and cold, aloof one minute, a total basket case the next."Indeed. In fact, that describes both the hero and the heroine here. And who wants to be with someone who yells "I hate you" and runs away almost every time you have sex." There is some explanation given for their behavior but by the time it's finally given I was done with these people.The sex scenes are great, once you get past the arguing, yelling and denials. But I do not think they are worth almost $6.00.
