I really enjoy all the Buzz Book releases because I believe it opens me up to new titles and authors that I might not have looked at. This Buzz Book focuses on Romances, from historical to contemporary with all sorts of genres (superhero, cowboy, mystery, fantasy, etc). 

There are fourteen excerpts from a variety of authors/publishers so there's a good chance that at least one book will grab your fancy. Also included is a publishing preview that lists some other books coming out with some short descriptions.

I loved reading about all theses upcoming novels. I like how it is all out together to take the guesswork out is things.

This book taught me what I like about contemporary romance and what I didn't. Because I wasn't expecting excerpts, it also taught me to read a blurb better before requesting a book.

I was a good and thorough look at upcoming titles. 
I was able to read and request a lot to books on this list.
since then I look forward to looking at a list like this to make decisions on what to add to our libraries collection or for my own personal enjoyment.

I always adore these previews. Buzz books always make my TBR pile grow to out of control proportions. Romance is always a tricky genre for me. I may just be a picky reader, but I feel like while I LOVE romance, I have trouble finding the perfect romance novel to read. 
A few of the romance novels I will be giving a chance, thanks to this preview are: 

The Memory House by Rachel Hauck. First of all, that cover is AMAZING and deserving of all the heart eye emojis. After seeing this pretty cover, I googled Rachel Hauck (having never read any of her work before) and discovered that ALL of her books have the most incredible covers. I need them all. I am for sure a  sucker for a pretty cover. Pretty cover aside, the book itself pulled me in with its fast paced introduction in which we discover that one of the leading ladies is a police officer. I can hardly wait to devour this one. This brief preview was not nearly enough for me. 


On Magnolia Lane by Denise Hunter. So, Denise Hunter is always amazing (and is another author with incredible cover art). The fact that a new Denise Hunter book is coming was really all I needed to know for this one to make my must read pile. Hunter writes incredible characters that draw you in and leave you missing them.

The Rancher by Kate Pearce. Thiiis is definitely a guilty pleasure read for me. Who DOESN'T want to read a great cowboy romance?! A novel with a strong woman and a grumpy cowboy? Yes please.

Last but not least, Solace Island by Meg Tilly.  This is a thriller romance. Which is possibly my very favorite cross over genre. I love a fast paced story that gets my heart thumping, especially if there is a guarantee of a HEA. This particular thriller romance promises to be a fun read. The dialogue in the sample is snappy and fun, and I can hardly wait to read the full novel.

I've read Katy Pearce and Karen Rose before, just an example, and know I will read them again!
Those Buzz books always drive me nuts because thanks to them I keep adding more books to my list!

I am once again thankful for another volume of new releases!  As the season changes, I enjoy becoming lost in romance books.  This volume of new 2018 romances has allowed me to preview several new books, and add them to my t0-read list for the winter!

Romance is a genre I enjoy and I have some favourite books and series from when I was younger like the Wild Hearts series by Cherie Bennett or the Point Romance series as well as the Making Out/ Boyfriends and Girlfriends series by K.A. Applegate. 

As an adult, I have less pure romance on my shelves but still enjoy the genre. I have even tried writing some romance into my own books. 

With romance being one of my less-chosen genres because I did not know about well known or recommended romance authors, I requested this book out of my own curiosity of wanting to know what books in the genre are currently out there. 

I'm glad I did request it as I came away with good recommendations. The excerpts were a good, quick and effective way to get an idea for each author's style since they were all new authors to me. 

Whether you read a lot of romance, are looking for something new or are new to the genre, this book is for you. 

4 stars. Thanks to the authors and publisher for my ARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.

I really liked the chance to find out if these stories were what I wanted to read. I have to say there were several I will be looking for.

Lots and lots of interesting teasers from a variety of upcoming new romance releases. Many have links to the full version at the end of the sample. Good variety and something for most romance readers. Found it very interesting and helpful.

I love Buzz Books.  I love hearing about all the different books that will be available in my favorite genres.

I enjoyed reading the excerpts of other books within this book. It gave a window into several books that I was interested in continuing to read. I was able to request them at the end of each excerpt if I was interested. I was approved to read four of them which I am in the process of doing. It is a great way to find new books. Some of the authors I was familiar with but most I was not. I will be looking for more books by the authors and hopefully more editions of Buzz Books in the future.
