Time for change

We have decided that, from January 2019, we will only be posting reviews for those books which we have rated either 5 stars or Stellar 5 stars. These will be the books that we can wholeheartedly recommend and ones we would want to re-read or listen to again.

**APPLIES TO ALL REVIEWS POSTED FROM 21 MARCH 2013**

I know some readers like plenty of steam in their romances like me. Whereas others prefer something less explicit. My ratings indicate the level of sensuality in each book reviewed.

Sizzling:

Very explicit and frequent sex scenes. Might contain BDSM, or other non-vanilla sexual content. Most likely an erotic romance.

Hot:

Explicit sex scenes and language between hero and heroine, but not as frequent as in erotica/erotic romance.

*I like plenty of steam and so the majority of books I read fall into this category.*

Warm:

Contains sex scenes but they aren’t particularly explicit. Focuses on sexual tension and emotional development of the relationship between hero and heroine.

Subtle:

Sex is alluded to or occurs off page.

Kisses:

No direct references to sex and certainly no sex scenes, but the book still contains a romance.

**APPLIES TO ALL REVIEWS POSTED FROM 21 MARCH 2013**

When I set up this blog, I omitted to provide information regarding my review ratings and so I’m rectifying that omission now. Better late than never!

The majority of the books I review have been either purchased by me, were freebies from Amazon or were won in competitions. Very occasionally, I do accept free books from specific authors in return for an honest review. I read purely for pleasure and so all my reviews are totally subjective and my ratings reflect how the books made me feel and how much I enjoyed them.

I do not review any books with less than 3 stars.

Stellar 5 stars

Awesome. In a class by itself.

5 stars

Fantastic. Loved it.

4.5 stars

Compelling. A good page turner.

4 stars

A very good read

3.5 stars

Enjoyable. A pleasant read.

3 stars

Just okay. Could have been better.
