Request a Review


Review Policy (as of February 2014):

Until further notice, Romancing the Book is not taking additional review requests.  We will delete all unsolicited emails (unless we’re part of a publisher’s mailing list, those are welcome).  We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we’re trying to get a handle on the 1000+ books in our database.

Romancing the Book’s reviewing services are 100% free, under the condition that a review copy of the said book (either in print or eBook format) is provided. To request a review, please fill out the form with all the required information below. If one of our reviewers is interested in reviewing your book, our review coordinator will be in touch.

Please keep in mind that all submissions will be considered for review, but not guaranteed unless a review copy is requested by our staff.  We read all genres within romance and erotica, as well as some YA.  If your book is outside these genres, your chances of a review from us are greatly decreased.

Our review will post approximately 4-6 weeks after our staff member receives the book.  The post will include:

  • book cover
  • book title and author (linked to author’s website)
  • series information (if applicable)
  • release date
  • publisher
  • number of pages
  • blurb
  • review
  • rating
  • purchase links (to Amazon, B&N, Book Depository and ARe, when applicable)

We also will categorize the review with the following icons:




As part of our service, we will notify you that the review is complete and provide the link to our review.  We will also repost our reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and in some cases the publisher’s website.  Due to the sheer volume of reviews at RtB, this may not occur until a couple weeks after the review has been posted on the blog.

If you need more information before submitting your request, please email Jen with any questions at  Please do not use this email address to submit your request or send an unsolicited copy of the book.  These emails will be deleted.  That said, if you are a publisher and would like to add us to your review list, contact Jen for details.

Our submission form is currently not available.  When we are open for submissions, we will replace the form.  Thank you for your understanding.
