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.

Short Stories from the Harmless Series by Melissa Schroeder

Yesterday I I made an effort to clear out some short works that were near the bottom of my TBR. Among them I had a couple of books composed of short stories from Melissa Schroeder's Harmless series that I downloaded from Amazon but are now only available on Ms. Schroeder' s website. (I tried to find them on Amazon and Google play and came up with Stephen Sondheim's Look, I Made a Hat instead. I thought that was funny so I used it as a place holder.)


The four short stories are: A Little Harmless Surprise, A Little Harmless Fling, A Little Harmless Kalikimaka, and A Little Harmless Gift.  If you've read at least half of the series, they are enjoyable little love scenes with a bit of bdsm and in one case menage thrown in. If you have not read the series they are still sexy little love scenes but at least one of them will be confusing.


I can't link to them but they were fun to read. I'd probably give them 3.5 - 4 stars.
