♥Ratings Guide and Other Icons

 Yes there are some books out there that need a 1 heart rating because they are that awful, but you won't see those posted here. I'll just choose to say nothing at all. 

♥♥ This would be the books that I finished but would not read again unless some serious revisions were done to it. I also wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. This would have to be one that has no clear cut direction or plot, characters I just can't follow or care about or those books out there that are so full of editing nightmares I want to bang my head against the wall.  Have I received a two star rating before? Yep. Do I know why? Yes. The person who rated my book preferred M/M erotic romances and this particular book of mine was M/F. The person NEVER READ THE BOOK!!! They just gave it a 2 because it didn't appeal to them. You won't get that from The Vixen!

♥♥♥ Now for this site, a three heart is a good book! It's one that entertained and I rooted for the characters. There's a plot and the story moves along. To get a three and not higher, there have to be some things I just couldn't ignore. Usually these things would be repetitive phrases, head hopping, switching from 1st person to 3rd person and then back again in the same scene. 

♥♥♥♥ These are great books that I would pick up again and definitely recommend to a friend. There are probably a few things that didn't sit well with me, but overall a fun read. I would recommend the book for others to give a try. Four hearts from The Vixen means overall you did your job well, author!

♥♥♥♥♥ Five hearts from The Vixen means you rocked my fantasy world! I was transported to the world you created easily and grew attached to your characters. I cheered them on, wanted to shake them when they did something stupid, and overall I could see myself in your story. You made your characters REAL to me. I would highly recommend a 5 heart book and read it over and over again just to see if there were any details I missed from the times before.  Five hearts means TELL ME MORE!!!

The drink glass will denote special cheers to the author for something that really grabbed my attention. 

This will be for the books that have some sweet/sensual scenes done exceptionally well.

I'll use this little devil for the books and poetry that are highly erotic, use vulgar language (which I'm fond of but some are not), or deal with any adult topic.

This party emoticon will be used for those books that make me stand up and beg for more about the characters and that I can't wait for the next book in the series.
