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.

Make A Wish And Blow - Christina James A little bit of okay story and a lot of very explicit love scenes. What kink there is is very light. The hero comes off as a beginner dom and makes the unfortunate mistake of claiming there is a correct way to do kinky sex. The heroine is whiney and waffles a lot. It's a best-friends-to-lovers romance where both (and especially the heroine) are afraid of losing their friendship. I just wish the heroine had been smarter and that there had been more story. But the love scenes are kind of fun and the basics are all fine (grammar, spelling and punctuation) . Note regarding Kindle edition: There are several random font changes throughout the book. They are distracting. I didn't rate down for this but the author really needs to fix this and re-upload.
