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.

Sweet Vibrations - Melinda Barron Book 1 in Melinda Barron's Tygers series - Erotic romantic suspense with BDSM. Ms. Barron handles both the suspense and erotic elements well. The romantic suspense is handled a little differently than usual and I liked that. The heroine does have a TSTL moment but instead of getting her into trouble from which she needs to be rescued, it is nicely thwarted by a third party and the hero's able to catch up with her.. The couple gets off to a very quick start - almost too quick, but I felt there was good chemistry developed between the hero and heroine throughout the story and overall I think it's a good start to the series.
