Are you an author? Do you write romance? Or a book with a romantic element? Well we should talk!!
Yes, I take review requests!! I am a crazy reader and always on the look out for my next book. Sadly, I work at a non-profit and have a limited book budget each month. I like to get creative with things and do galleys and have this little blog. I am always up for free books!!
I post my reviews on Goodreads Amazon and here if I really liked the book. I am open to posting other locations if the author requests them.
Now, before you send me a book or request here are a few things you should know:
1. I am not the kind of reviewer who regurgitates the book blurb or breaks the story down in a synopsis.
2. I like to keep it simple. Did I like the book, why and why not? How steamy did things get? I am not a writer just a reader so do not expect purple prose in my reviews!
3. I do not do spoilers. I hate having the book given away and try not to do it to others.
4. I give honest but fair reviews. Check out my posts to see examples or see my Goodreads or Amazon reviews.
5. I have a big thing about reading series in order. If you book is not the first book in a set please offer up the whole series for review. And I never believe that a series book can also be a standalone.
6. Give me a little time to read! I am a speed reader but I also have my personal reading I like to squeeze in from time to time!
7. It you have specific materials you would like me to include in a post you need to get them to me in a timely manner.
8. Share the love! I am always open to giveaways of books, ebooks or swag. I don't mind a little myself either!
9. While it seems like I read everything I can be a touch picky. So, do not be offended if I do not choose to review your book. But feel free to try me again on future books.
10. I respond to every request and email I receive. But it might take a day or so, cause I have that good ole day job.
What I enjoy:
Menage ( MFM, MMF, MMFM, MMMF...pretty much every combo as long as there is a gal involved)
BDSM (I really like Doms and prefer a spunky gal to a slave)
Shifters (bears are my fav!!!!!!)
Ropes/Hot Wax/ Light flogging
What I do not enjoy:
SOFT LIMITS -
MM (again not a hard limit cause I have had I few I really liked)
Western Historical (sometimes I can get into these)
HARD LIMITS -
Cheating (and married but separated is cheating to me)
Sadists (I have been known to change my mind if he has a soft underbelly)
Millionaire/Poor girl (I hated Fifty Shades)
Rape (If it is back story or integral to the plot I am not bothered but I do not like reading graphic scenes)
Religious themed romance
Try me...I am always open to new things and who knows I may just love it!
FORMATS- I have a Kindle Fire HD. I prefer mobi or prc. But is you only have PDF that is fine. I also accept gift books from Amazon(same email as my contact). I am a multi-faceted reader and also enjoy audiobooks! So, please feel free to give me happy ears while I torture my self at the gym!
