I enjoyed this taster of th3 many varieties of Romance genres that are now available. My favourites included The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare; Into the Night by Cynthia Eden and Hot and Badgered by Shelly Lauren's tonight. I would have appreciated the chance to read more of these and may purchase them in the future.

I always look forward to these Buzz Books.  I enjoy getting to know different authors that I may not normally read and getting the excerpts from some of the novels gives just enough of a taste to want to read more.  I really enjoy that the link is included for purchasing the novel for each excerpt so if I read one that I really want to finish, I can immediately continue after I purchase it.  I often use this book as a starting point for the books I plan to read for the next few months and am rarely disappointed in the recommendations that are listed.  It's like a travel guide for book lovers!

Great publication giving us a sneak peak of some awesome books coming our way soon! I like that we get a taste of all genres in this edition.  A great intro to some authors I didn't know as well!

Very handy guide to some notable upcoming releases! Authors I already know, love, and look forward to their next book are: Tessa Dare (The Duchess Deal), Eloisa James (Wilde in Love),  and Shelly Laurenston (Hot and Badgered).  Some authors I've only read one or two titles from, but I'm now excited for: Gena Showalter (Can't Hardly Breathe), A Daring Arrangement (Joanna Shupe), and Nicole Helm (Mess With Me). Entirely new to me, and titles I'll look for after publication are: Betina Krahn (A Good Day to Marry a Duke), Roni Loren (The Ones Who Got Away), and Hannah Howell (The Scotsman Who Saved Her).

Useful romance sampler from various publishers. Nice mix of historical and contemporary. Looking forward to reading all of these books in full when they're released. Shelly Laurenston and Tessa Dare's books stand out. Useful to librarians looking for new series or new authors to try.

An excellent and well-varied peak at what's coming up. There are some intriguing titles on here, and some of the series continuations are ones that I would definitely recommend to patrons.

This is a great collection of excerpts of upcoming and published romance books in 2017.

It contains an introduction followed by a section with a section of Historical, Romantic Suspense, Contemporary, and Paranormal Romance. After that there are summary and excepts by publishers. I particularly enjoyed the excerpt for THE DUCHESS DEAL by Tessa Dare.

Overall, a great list of buzzing romance titles for 2017.

In order to offer a completely fair review, I've broken it down into two parts...

5 Stars for concept:
I love the entire idea behind these Buzz Books and plan on making them must haves as I see them become available from now on. This volume offers 18 excerpts from romance novels that are upcoming releases from between 8/22/17 and 3/27/18. The excerpts are from a wide variety of romantic sub-genres and include at times just a prologue to as many as three chapters. I had a blast discovering new authors and upcoming titles that I wasn't even aware were coming out. Highly recommended.

3 Stars for overall content:
There were quite a few titles in this volume of Buzz Books that I instantly wanted to purchase. A few of the big ones to look out for included:

(Excerpts I gave 5 stars to)
-- The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare - 8/22/17
-- Can't Hardly Breathe by Gena Showalter - 8/29/17

(Excerpts I gave 4 stars to)
-- Into the Night by Cynthia Eden - 12/26/17
-- Wilde in Love by Eloisa James - 10/31/17
-- A Good Day to Marry a Duke by Betina Krahn - 11/28/17
-- The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren - 1/2/18
-- Monster in the Closet by Karen Rose - 8/29/17
-- A Daring Arrangement by Joanna Shupe - 10/31/17

There were others that piqued my interest and maybe it just didn't have that hook because the excerpt was shorter than I'd hoped or some that weren't my cup of tea, but overall this was a great batch of excerpts with tons to look forward to.

Overall I give this 4 Stars
If for no other reason, you should pick this one up because it offers a FREE glance at a variety of upcoming titles for you to be on the look out for.

Side note: No where could I find a page count for this book. It makes sense considering it's excerpts taken from a ton of different sources, but according to some conversion tables I found for Kindle location to page count, it is roughly 435 pages for anyone wondering.

This is one of the best resources for bloggers, librarians etc because it gives you a sneak peek of upcoming titles that you might or might not know about. It allows you to read a preview of the book so you can decide if you want to purchase this. I have discovered many hidden gems in these books.

I have read a couple of Buzz Books before and this one was my favorite so far. I love the opportunity to read excerpts from various upcoming releases and being able to decide in advance which titles have caught my interest. The best part is getting to read several chapters from authors I have never tried before, because I have a few that I am now excited to read from.
