Review Policy

PLEASE NOTE-We welcome you to submit your book for review, but due to high demand we will not be committing to new reviews before the new year.

We will accept books for review from traditionally published and self published authors. You will, in return, receive a fair and honest review.


We are interested in reviewing books in the following genres:
Contemporary Romance
Young adult and New adult
Erotic Romance
Dark Erotica
Romantic Suspense
Romantic comedy
BDSM
M/M
Ménage
Paranormal Romance on a case by case basis.


There are three of us reviewing for the blog.  We all have our own specific interests within these genres.  Please see our ‘About Us’ section to learn more about each reviewers personal preferences.


Submitting
All books must be submitted for consideration.  We, obviously, are unable to review everything submitted to us, but will do our best.
Email us at (bookaholics2@gmail.com) with the following information:


Title
Author
Your name (if different from the author)
Genre
Synopsis/Blurb
Goodreads and/or Amazon links if possible.
Length of book
How many in the series or stand alone
Time frame for review


We will get back to you and let you know whether or not we are able to review your book at that time.  Please do not be offended if we are unable to review your book.  We all have a schedule of books to read, in addition to our personal lives, and sometimes just do not have the time.  This is in no way a reflection of our thoughts on your book, but simply a time management issue.


We do not and will not accept compensation for a review.  All reviews are subjective to our own tastes and life experiences.


Formats accepted:
.pdf
.mobi
.epub
hard copy


We will read ARCs, Galley copies, and finished products


Ratings Decoded
All reviews will be posted on Goodreads, Amazon, our blog, and other sites as requested.
Books with less than 3 stars will be posted at the reviewers discretion.  In the case that a review is not posted we will contact you and/or the author with the reasons that a review is not being posted


DNF ~ Did Not Finish.  May go on to DNF shelves on Goodreads, depending on reviewer.
1-2 Stars ~ DNF will end up in a 1 or 2 star rating.  This is generally because we feel like the concept is sound but we did not connect with the book for some reason.  Books are reads that we probably wouldn’t personally recommend. (Not all 1-2 star books are DNFs)
3 stars ~ Good concept.  Book fell short in execution somehow.
3.5 stars ~ Good book.  Enjoyed the journey that we were taken on. Would recommend if asked.  
4 stars ~ Very good book.  The author was able to draw us in and make us care for the characters.  Will definitely recommend to friends.
4.5 stars ~ Excellent book.  Love reading the book.  Have to tell someone about it whether or not they want to hear about it or not!
5 stars ~ Outstanding book.  Book was un-put-downable.  Will remain with us for a very long time.
5+ stars ~ Favorite book.  Not a common rating.  These are books that speak to our souls and become a part of us.


Personal Note
We have many authors that we love and support already.  We also love new authors, and take on many books from first time authors.  We love to find that diamond in the rough.  We find that reading your books and leaving comprehensive reviews is the best way to show that support.


Do not hesitate to contact us to help you promote your books in other ways too.  We post Cover Reveals, Release Blitzes, and Blog tours.  If you have another way for us to help support a book, ask us and we will work with you as best we are able.


If you have any ideas on what we can do to make your experience as an author, reader, blogger, etc. please let us know!!  The only way that we can get better is if you let us know how to do it.
