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.

Ho, Humbug, Ho (Richmond Rogues, #4.5) - Kate Angell This was a fun pre-Christmas read and a good addition to Ms. Angell's Richmond Rogues series. It's an opposites attract romance with a grinchy ball player stuck doing community service as a Santa in a small Florida town under the supervision of a perky local woman. He's grumbly and she's stubborn but fortunately the story's short enough that it doesn't become annoying. It's not the best in the series. I didn't feel quite as much chemistry between the characters as I usually do with this series and (probably because it's so short) there was no secondary romance. Still, it was a nice, funny holiday story.
