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.

Were She Belongs (Were Trilogy #1) - Dixie Lynn Dwyer I was surprised by how much I liked this book. I was expecting the thousand and tenth iteration of werewolf brothers protecting a damsel in distress on the run with kinky menage sex thrown in and got a lot more than that from it. There's a fairly complicated paranormal story arch running through this series and Ms. Dwyer's done a nice job of balancing that with some good characterization. The brothers are still a little cypherish, as I find they almost always are in heroine-centric menage stories but they've got more complexity than is the norm for this genre.
