Review Policy

We started this blog to introduce our readers to new books, whether they're newly published or oldies but goodies, with the hope that we can expand their bookshelves. We will consider all review requests and attempt to respond within 24 hours. We prefer the following romance genres:
  • Paranormal
  • Erotica
  • Historical
  • Contemporary
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Fantasy
  • Young Adult
  • New Adult
However, even we are willing to expand our bookshelves,  so please feel free to send a request not included in the above genres. If we feel we cannot give a fair, unbiased review, we will reply informing you of our reasons in declining.

Review Policy

  1. We accept review copies from large publishers, e-book publishers, and authors (even self published). 
  2. If there is a deadline to be met, please inform us when you contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request first. Otherwise, books will be read/reviewed in order of received.
  3. We accept e-books, paperback, ARC's and Galleys. 
  4. Our preferred format for e-books is EPUB or MOBI. Please be aware, there are two reviewers on this site, so your digital copy may be sent to my co-blogger or myself. However, only we will receive the digital copy.  No one outside of Book Broads will have access to the document. If you prefer we not share, please inform us with the initial contact.
  5. Book Broads strive to give a fair and honest review. Please remember we are critiquing the book, not the author! 
If you still want to send us your book for review, please contact us with the information at this link.

Review Guidelines 

  1. We strive to give fair, honest reviews. If we do not like the book we will say so. If we feel we cannot give an honest review because the style/topic/POV is not to our liking, we will either present it to our co-blogger or inform you of our decision to decline the submission for review.
  2. Reviews will be posted on any date agreed upon between ourselves and the author/publicist.  In order to have a review posted by a particular time, we must receive it at least 14 days prior to the requested date.  If no date is requested (and confirmed), then a review will be posted at our convenience.  We will make every effort to meet all requested dates, however, personal emergencies may arise.  Therefore, all dates are subject to change depending on circumstances without notice.
  3. Sending a book for review without prior communication does not guarantee a review and we will not send the book back if we do not review it.
  4. All reviews are copyrighted by Book Broads.  Permission to re-post any review will be granted to the author and/or publisher of the work reviewed and only with a link back to the review and/or site.
