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.

Exposed: Her Undercover Millionaire - Michelle Celmer,  Catherine Mann Not bad for this particular series but I was expecting a little more suspense. Also I felt like the previous books in the series emphasized Brandon's estrangement from his father and sister more so there was a bit of a let down for me there. I did like the heroine a lot. She's more self-sufficient than most, never a doormat and acts intelligently. But the book is much more about Brandon dealing with past events and his family. I thought this was handled fairly well for the book itself but it didn't seem to build up to the final book in the series as I expected it to. I do like Ms. Cellmer's style. I found the book easy and quick to read. I enjoyed her descriptions of the ranch and the characters there and I though it made a nice interlude. I think my main problem with the book is that I wanted Brandon to have some sort of huge showdown with someone ... anyone! But maybe this book had to be a little anticlimactic to make the final book work.
