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.

Can't Get Enough (Harlequin Blaze, #211) - Sarah Mayberry If this is early Sarah Mayberry, no wonder her later books are so great. Even as an less experienced author she creates characters and relationships that are complex and three dimensional and feel real. Claire and Jack's insecurities really hit home with me. I think Ms. Mayberry's plots are tighter in more recent books and maybe a little less obvious as well but its a matter of degree. And I do recommend Can't Get Enough.One side note - I put this book off a bit because the cover art hit me the wrong way. I'm not completely sure why. Maybe it's just the whole stuck in an elevator thing because I am claustrophobic and I have been stuck in an elevator and it was scary and hot and awful. And there was no hot guy to sex me up. :( I could have done with a much shorter elevator scene.
