Not sure what to say about these. To review each preview or just this book...
The books chosen for this were all by talented authors and I cannot wait for them to be released.

I can always count on the Buzz Books as a one-stop shopping place to find great upcoming releases!  It definitely cuts down on the inevitable homework that I find myself always doing to keep up on the latest and best upcoming releases. This volume is not exception and I'm greatly looking forward to a number of the titles listed.

So, I have to be honest, this was somewhat of a disappointment for me. Despite the hefty selection—18 titles with excerpts—I only walked away feeling like I had to get my hands on The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren. Why oh why is NetGalley only offering a sneak peek instead of the full novel?! Guess I'll have to wait until January.

Every reader has different tastes, likes and dislikes, and for me, this Buzz Books compilation hit on a lot of the aspects of the romance genre that I don’t typically partake in. The selections seemed to be geared heavily towards historical romance fans and books with I’m sorry to say, overly cheesy covers and corny sounding storylines. Romance books you might imagine your grandmother read back in the day. I think what I was expecting was more contemporary romance titles. With that said, my overflowing bookshelf is probably thanking me for only adding one title and like I’ve said multiple times, these compilations are great; especially for the exposure to new authors they offer.

A great idea. Pick and mix and read extracts of books you might not normally select.

I was lead here via a link from the author Shelly Laurenston for the brief glimpse of Hot and Badgered.I believe this book is the author at her best,including humour,suspense,romance and a good storyline.Have pre-ordered the book as a result.

I'm usually not into romance, but these teasers really put me in the mood for some!

This is a great concept where a reader gets "sneak peaks."  I got some suggestions to read authors that would not have normally been on my radar..

I love romance samplers because I can check in with subgenres and tropes I would normally skip and see if they've grown on me.  My favorite this time around is The Austen Escape - I usually shy away from modern/Regency mixes but the first chapter has me sold!

This is a fun little book with exerpts from new books in the romance genre.  It gives readers just a taste of a story from favorite authors, or from authors new to them.  It's a great way to find new books to enjoy, see what a favorite author has coming, and to read something from an author new to the reader.

Very good mixture of different romances. It introduced me to a few new authors and reintroduced me to a few I used to read.  Really liked the Shelly Laurenston excerpt.

Buzz Books let you sample what is coming up, however I can't do this because I want most of them, and just keep adding to wish list.

This guide/book was perfect. It gave an excerpt and/or the first chapter of up coming books. This was perfect!! One book with release information. I wish this was something done more often instead of having to search for info on upcoming releases or hoping something pops up in your email or Facebook feed.

Love these Buzz books! They give a synopsis of books about to be published and tell you where to find them. You can review the latest offerings by your favorite authors or read what a new one has to offer. A very handy guide.

I think this is a great concept in previewing upcoming romances. There are different romance genres, favorite authors and new to me authors to discover. Since my favorite magazine source for romances is no more, it is harder to find out what is coming soon. I can't read every newsletter by publishers and authors, there are so many. This gives you a glimpse of popular authors all in one place. Nice!

The selections in this sampler cover a very wide range of romance sub-genres, a great choice for those who (like me) are looking to expand their choices and try something new, as well as for those who already enjoy reading many different types of romances.

Very interesting read, started reading it for one particular author, ended up reading them all and found a bunch more series to start reading.

Buzz Books are a great way to preview coming books. In this case, the Fall 2017 Romances. This edition is full of intriguing sounding romances which calls to you to request them all!
