In joining this review group you have agreed to review the novels assigned to you on a two month schedule. This group is now in the review phase and is no longer open for sign up.

This is Romance Review Group 5, which will include all works classified as romances (No erotica, Please). As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the books assigned to you. Assignments will be made after the group sign-up has filled.

Participants are expected to post reviews to Goodreads. The review should be posted to Amazon (US and UK) as well, if the book is available there. This makes having accounts with both Goodreads and Amazon.com a requirement.

Contact the authors you are scheduled to review to arrange to receive a review copy of their work. Note that Amazon has made a minor change in how reviews are displayed. As long as a review that is not verified as a purchase is recent, it will be displayed on the book's Amazon page. Once it rolls off, it will still be counted in the ranking of the book, but the link to show more reviews has been modified by Amazon to show only reviews that come from verified purchases. Authors may consider gifting their book to assigned reviewers so that they will qualify as verified purchases. Reviewers may bypass this limitation by offering to purchase the books assigned to them. All of this is voluntary. Authors may still provide review copies for free, and reviewers can still post reviews to Amazon that are not from a verified purchase. This change in Amazon policy has no effect on Goodreads.

Please post to this topic, both when you receive review copies and when you post the reviews.

If you are going to be late with your review, either post to this topic as soon as possible or message the author and the moderator.

If your book has not been reviewed by the deadline for either round, contact the review group moderator. This is necessary to make certain that the review process is fair for everyone.

Note that any participant who makes no effort to fulfill his or her commitment to this group will have all reviews of his or her work resulting from this group deleted and his or her membership in the Genre Specific Review Group will be terminated.

Christy Nicholas (greendragon9) | 104 comments Me, please! I'd love to add Legacy of Luck to this list! A historical romantic adventure with shades of Taming of the Shrew :)


message 3: by K.T. (new)

K.T. Munson | 278 comments Hello R.

I'd like to put my romantic fantasy into the group. Zendar: A Tale of Blood and Sand

Thanks!
K.T. Munson


message 4: by Sara-Lisa (new)

Sara-Lisa Andersson I'd like to enter my contemporary romance: Until We Lay


message 5: by D.C. (new)

D.C. Triana (dctriana) | 13 comments Hello R,
please add Sunset Reads: Damian & Layla to the list.
Thank you,
D.C. Triana


message 6: by SheReads (new)

SheReads (shereads42) I'd like to submit my contemporary romance Dreams.

Thanks! Michelle Lynn


message 7: by SheReads (new)

SheReads (shereads42) I should let you know that I have already reviewed K.T. Munson's book.


message 8: by Cecily (last edited Feb 07, 2017 07:07AM) (new)

Cecily Wolfe I would love to submit my Christian historical romance, Throne of Grace, for review. It is Christian, so if it is not something that a reader is comfortable with, please don't assign it to them.

I look forward to reading a great romance from this group! I enjoy all romance so I will be happy to read any of the above.

Best,

Cecily


message 9: by J. (new)

J. Saman | 30 comments Hello. I would like to submit Start Over. D.C. has already read it.
I have also reviewed Michelle Lynn's Dreams and D.C.'s Damian and Layla. Hope that won't cause a problem!


message 10: by J. (new)

J. Saman | 30 comments Here is the link. Sorry. Start Over: A Novel


message 11: by J. (new)

J. Saman | 30 comments I just realized that I would make 7. Sorry! I'll wait for the next one then.


message 12: by K.T. (new)

K.T. Munson | 278 comments We might need 7 because I've read D.C.'s book and Michelle read mine. I read one of J's but not that one so I could review it.

Just as a heads up I'm not very much into Christian literature. I'd still read it and rate it within the romance genre, but thought I'd point out I may not be the right person to review it.

As always thanks R!


message 13: by J. (new)

J. Saman | 30 comments Well, if you need 7, I'd be happy to be that one. Thanks K.T.

Authors:

We have seven. There seems to be a reason number of conflicts, but we will see if we can generate a valid schedule. If any participant knows of any additional conflict not already noted, please post it in a comment here as soon as possible.

R.

PS: I just did a test schedule. With the seven participants we have and the noted conflicts, we can generate a review schedule.

Did you volunteer a book for this review group? I don't see one, unless you write under another name.

R.

The book you use for this group is up to you. Until I publish the schedule, you can change your book. As things stand, I can generate a good schedule with the books as they are.

Sorry I missed that conflict. The schedule has been redone to correct that. Anyone who has already read the schedule, please reread it; the assignments have changed.

message 29: by J. (new)

J. Saman | 30 comments Not to be sketchy or anything, but I can post it under a different amazon name if that helps. If you're really against it K.T. then I'm happy to do someone else's.
