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.

Yes, My Mistress - Jennifer Cole I started this book knowing I wouldn't care for it as I don't like books with Dommes. I have a feeling this book really doesn't satisfy people who do like F/m as well as those who don't. I'm in the latter category and it really doesn't fit that category but there is enough femdom in it that I found myself skipping most of it, especially the sex scenes. But there's a lot of M/f as well so people who are looking for a book about a Domme really aren't going to find that here.This series as a whole is disappointing. The premise is okay but the writing's not that good. There's a lot of telling rather than showing. The author uses a technique I often like - telling the story of the same night from different people's points of view over the course of a series - but instead of having different characters witness different aspects of the events, there is mostly just repeated dialogue and description. There are also numerous grammar and spelling errors throughout, though that could conceivably be a Kindle formatting issue. On the other hand, it's not dreadful and I enjoyed the first book in this series (, At the Dungeon Master's Hand better than the third. But none of them are standouts.
