Blah. Blah, blah, blech.

The new cover is the best thing about this. Wish the Hero in the book was as appealing as the dude on the cover.

When Liz Fielding posted on Twitter that she was offering her book for free on smashwords.come, I took the chance and scooped up a copy - and I'm glad I did! I have never read anything by this author before, so I didn't know what to expect - which can be both exciting and scary (in a good way).

Wild Justice is romance at its best - not so much simpering and fluffy, but with a real, meaty story to balance it all out nicely - just the way I like it! I will admit to being slightly thrown off at time

I downloaded this for free from somewhere. Overall it was a good book, and kept me reading.

Fizz Beaumont is a failed actress. After getting her heart broken, she's taken refuge in Broomhill Bay in order to run a radio station, but her current way of life is threatened when incredibly rich Luke Devlin buys the station as part of his plot for revenge.

The romance portions of this book were good. Luke is your typical alpha-male personality, at times rude and unforgiving, but able to turn up the heat

Okay, let me start out by saying I liked the story.
There was intrigue and the characters were quite well written and believable.
I kind of guessed where it was all leading about half way through, but it didn't detract from the story.
I really liked Melanie, too. And Claudia grew on me.
I liked Fizz, but sometimes she was terribly clueless. I liked Luke too, he was a strong, if flawed, hero, but I thought the progression from being an ass to falling in love with Fizz was a little sudden.

Rabbit {Paint me like one of your 19th century gothic heroines!}
The hero is a cad but entertaining, until he started acting like a crybaby when his plan for revenge backfires.

I liked Fizz, but if I was her, I would have kicked him in the crotch.

Why three stars? I enjoyed the main characters.

Lovely enjoyable longer length read - I read the new kindle version, looking forward to the next two books in the series.

British setting, but no British spellings made this novel different. It was, quite honestly, boring with way too many drama queens/kings. The Beaumont family of actors seemed to be stuck on "playing a part" and that came across to me as silly and shallow.

The author's use of single quotes for dialogue was very strange, and no, she wasn't quoting a quote, which is how Americans use single quotes. If this is a British thing, why didn't the author also use British spellings?

I'm glad it was free as

What? I don't even... I dunno what I just tried to read, but it was so... I DON'T HAVE THE WORDS.

First of all, there was no mention of time or location. I didn't even realize this was supposed to be 1965 until I tried reading spoiler reviews in an attempt to figure out why this shit was making zero sense to me. And apparently they're somewhere in the UK, which I couldn't even locate on a map because I'm American. Finding out they were in the UK made a couple of awkward sounding sentences make se

Once upon a time I read a Liz Fielding book that was so thoroughly awful that I put her name in my mental files as an author I would never bother reading again. However, I am glad I forgot and downloaded this book, because I actually enjoyed this one very much. It did share one of my complaints with the previous book--the hero was so obnoxious that it was unbelievable that the heroine fell in lust with him, no matter how pretty the putrid package looked on the outside. Granted the author humaniz ...more

I'm 50/50 on this book. I was a pretty good romance with very interesting twists, BUT one reason I am 50/50 is that many of the "twist" you could see coming which takes away from the story since they are also typical twist you see in many soap opera drama/romances.

**** SPOILER ALERT *****

To go more into detail of why I feel or what I see as being typical read further.

#1 - the ending where she get knocked up, like really, come on lets get more unique, and also with the pregnancy it automatically

As hero's go I really disliked Luke for about 2 thirds of the book. He came across as a psychopathic jerk, whilst poor Fiz as very much the victim.

His aim revenge served very cold, deadly almost and her aim to remain invisible and just get on with the everyday business of running her radio station and protecting her battered heart.

Very well written, especially as the hero did a complete 180 turn and became the love of her life at the end.

If it had not been for the fact that I've been challenging
I have to say I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters, even Claudia towards the end. It was fast paced with a good plot. I had figured out what had happened before I got to it, but that was okay?

The bad thing about it was a huge amount of misspelled words. Hmmmmmm did I spell misspelled right? Also words that should have been edited out were not. There were many words that came from England. Since I was raised in the states I had to look up words or try to figure them out if I couldn't find

I struggled to enjoy this book because I really did not like the 'hero', Luke Devlin. The story was readable and there were parts that I enjoyed, although the ending was long drawn out and held no surprises. But it was the portrayal of a man who would try to destroy the happiness and livelihoods of innocent people to be revenged on what he thought was a betrayal that I didn't like. The man was wrong, wrong, wrong all the way through the book and I wouldn't have trusted him to post a letter never ...more

An enjoyable story-well plotted, engaging characters, and a nice romance to boot but I have to say that the hero, Luke Devlin, was such an arse the majority of the story. So many times I wanted to reach through the book and pop him a good one. He makes up for it in the end but not enough groveling for me.

The Last
After reading 1984 and finding it quite taxing on my baby brain fogged mind, I decided to try a lighter/easier read and picked this one because a) it was free and b) I was hopeful - based on the title - it would include cowboys.

Firstly, it was a quick and easy read. It moved along at a fast enough rate to keep me going but the plot was far too obvious from the word go and I didn't think the language used by the characters was always realistic based on their ages etc (sometimes they sounded old-f

First let me just say that I enjoyed the setting for this novel. A pier with a radio station that still produces and radio soap (you just don't see that anymore). Other than that there wasn't anything that made this story stand out from any other one I've read. It was an easy read but I just wasn't able to feel a connection to the two leads & I wanted to root for them but there was just something lacking. This novel is told from the perspective of both parties and I really enjoy knowing what ...more

I have mixed feelings about this book. In one sense, it was incredible. I was rooting for Fizz (love that name) all the way. I really, really wanted to find out if she would find the love that she deserved. The sexual tension was thick. The writer knows how to create this tension with masterly skill. There were two things that drew me back a bit with this book. At times, the hero was just too mean. Yes, that did help create the conflict and the sexual tension and it made the novel more interesti ...more

It was a predictable romance but I liked it, a guilty pleasure I guess.
Fizz is a 20 something woman who is head of a radio station and is opening a restaurant as well. But she lets her father be known as the top guy to avoid sexism and because he is popular and well known and will probably bring in more money then she could. When one of his money sources falls apart due to a corporate takeover, Fizz is scrambling to make sure she gets her sponsorship. So she meets the dreaded Luke Devlin who too

This is a free read that I kept coming across and passing it by. Finally I downloaded it and then finally read it. I liked it. Their were parts where the way it was wording threw me a bit. But then being that this book takes place it England and their is some Aussie in it I over looked it.

All in all it was a good book and I liked it. The story flowed well and kept me interested. The character were likable. Fizz is a strong woman hiding for her own reason which you get lil snipets about her and t

Intrigue and romance

Really loved the book. All the characters were real and had a lot of depth to them. I was so glad to see a strong female lead instead of the whimpy female who fumble and mumble thru the stories in so many of these romance novel's. Fizz had few moments but they were believable. All in all a good read.

Just what I needed for a bit of escapism. Easy read. A bit of mystery (predictable), and romance. The book lifted my mood and I looked forward to reading further. Nothing extraordinary about the book, but good character development for the main characters. There are points in the book when you are not sure you like them or not, which keeps it interesting.

I liked this book -- it drug in places, but I'm the end, I ended up buying the other 2 in the series so it must have pulled me in at some point!
Typical plot twists - although the characters act different at times, so I kept reading to see how they'd react or what they'd say to defend themselves.

I have a habit of finding books on my kindle and not remembering why, when or how I obtained them. That was the case with this book - did I come across the author's blog? Was it a recommendation? It was a freebie, I think.
Either way, I came across it when looking for something to read the other night, and found it strangely enjoyable. I identified with Fizz as the independent business woman running a radio station, loved the idea of it being based on a pier, and was intrigued by the character of

This book is an enjoyable read with just enough twists and turns to make it interesting. The chemistry between the characters was sizzling without being over the top. Fizz made for an fascinating heroine with her tendency to explode out of her carefully restrained persona. Luke as an aggressive alpha male out for revenge is pretty nasty at times but luckily we get to see inside his head early enough in the piece to realise his ambivalence. The story is light weight in the nicest way. Good holida ...more

The love story of Felicity “Fizz” Beaumont and Luke Devlin is an old fashioned romance with a bit of glitz, glamour and gaiety that tells not only of meeting, greeting and loving but also has an undercurrent of revenge gone awry. This is the first book in a series of three that will tell the love stories of sisters with Fizz being the first in line. This story includes a business takeover in a small working town on the coast of England, a private radio station that is entangled in the takeover, ...more
