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.

Catch Her When She Falls [Sequel to Table for Three] (Siren Publishing Menage Amour) - Missy Martine This sequel to Ms. Martine's Table for Three has a higher story to smutty ratio and in my opinion is the superior of the two books. I finished the first book with a strong dislike of Serena, the heroine of this book, but the author does a good job explaining her character and bringing the reader around to sympathize with her. As with the first book, the heroes here are mostly likeable though they could be better differentiated. There is not as much suspense in this one but there is more story.I have one minor quibble with the author's description of the location of the story. I have to hope she has never been to Kaufman, Texas which is part of the DFW metroplex. Ms. Martine seems to believe it is in some far-flung isolated corner when in fact it is minutes from Mesquite. Further, she has her trio stop for food there because it's the only place around. Since Kaufman is in the southeast corner of the metroplex and they were driving from Oregon, which is northwest of Dallas, they almost had to drive through part of Dallas to get there. There are plenty of restaurants in Dallas. I will refrain from ranting about Gray's Prairie. I am hoping its purely fictional and the author was not sending her heroine to shop for jeans in Grand Prairie which is on the opposite side of Dallas from Kaufman ... Ms. Martine did do a good job of describing Gun Barrel City in my opinion, but then I've not been there yet. [/end rant] Overall this was a fairly good menage erotic romance with a bit of suspense and despite that little quibble, I enjoyed it.
