Brandy | 64 comments This is the romance review group, which will include all types of novels classified as romance (i.e. paranormal romance, etc). As with other review groups, you will be expected to read and give an honest review of the book assigned to you. Assignments will be made after the group sign-up has filled.

Participants are expected to post reviews to Goodreads. If the review is positive (three stars or higher on Amazon), the review should be posted to Amazon as well, if the book is available there. This makes having accounts with both Goodreads and Amazon.com a requirement. The author and reviewer can discuss other sites to post reviews as well -- Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, etc.

This topic will be updated with the list of authors as they sign up with their names and Goodreads links to their books. First come; first serve. This is an authors only peer review group.

If a reviewer and the author agree that the review should not be posted to Goodreads due to quality issues, the reviewer is relieved of the requirement of posting the review. If this occurs in the first round, the second reviewer is relieved of the requirement to read and review the book. This is entirely at the discretion of the reviewer and is not intended in any way to manipulate the rating of any book.

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.

**Sign ups are open until May 14th--or until all six spots are filled**
**Please note that if you have joined an earlier group but did not fulfill your commitment you will not be accepted into new review groups.**

Brandy | 64 comments OK, so all 6 spots are filled. While there isn't a specific rule about having to submit a specific book for the group, I would recommend doing so.

I'll set up the reading groups by tomorrow.

J.H. Croix Hi there,

I've completed my review for Round 1: Black Sheep by Jennifer Cole. Here's the link to the review on Goodreads.

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I can't find the book on Amazon to post the review. The link to it through Goodreads doesn't work, and it doesn't come up through any searches even when I tried to find it through the author's other book. If you can direct me to it, I'll be glad to post the review there. Let me know. Thanks!

:)
J.H.

Elaine Cantrell (elainecantrell) | 12 comments I just finished round one Let It Snow by Ica Iova. I posted the GR review, but the Amazon link doesn't work, and I can't find it on Amazon. If I can get a direct link, I'll add it to Amazon.

How about we do a swap?

I guess you've seen that we have a new group, so a swap won't be necessary now. I didn't see your message before.
