Thank you for the opportunity to preview some 2019 Romance titles. Romance is my favorite genre, and these samplers help me discover new authors.

Thanks NetGalley!

Really great resource for new romance books, I'm excited for many of these! Adding many to my TBR, seems like lots of new authors and I love a debut

I was excited to see a sample of 2019 Rebekah Weatherspoon's new book A Cowboy to Remember in the edition of Buzz Books Romance. I recently discovered her through her book Rafe. I also made note of The Dating Charade by Melissa Ferguson. If several of the other titles show up on Audible Escape, I will borrow them.

Such a rich source of diverse and fascinating stories from writers I would not otherwise have discovered! Appreciate the attention to offering selections for each of the major subgenres within romance, such as the paranormal, fantasy, and contemporary. My only peeve is that once I started reading each selection, I didn't want to stop -- but I guess that's not really an issue...the books are out there!

4/5 stars

*Thank you to NetGalley and the various publishers for allowing me this arc and the first chapters of these romance stories in exchange for an honest review!

I really enjoyed this collection of romance books! There were definite favorites out of the group that already felt like four and five star reads just from the few chapters I read. The absolute favorites were Bromance Book Club, Not the Girl You Marry, Bringing Down the Duke, The Dating Charade, The Bachelor, and The Princess Plan. Each of these stories had distinct personalities for their characters already and most of all made me want to read more about them! I can't wait to actually finish some of these stories.

A fun look at a variety of romance novels being released this fall. I enjoyed the little excerpts from each one.

I always love the Buzz Books! They are such a good way to see upcoming new titles and there are some great romance titles on the horizon.

This exciting collection offers a sneak peak at some of the best in romance that readers can look forward to. Favorites include excerpts from Bringing Down the Duke, by debut author Evie Dunmore, Not the Girl You Marry, by Andie J. Christopher, and A Cowboy to Remember, by Rebekah Weatherspoon. The only downside is patiently waiting for these books to come out so that you can finish reading them all.

I LOVE these books. It's like getting one of those big sample platters for two at a Chinese restaurant. You can try a little bit of everything without committing to an entree (hey, what if you don't like it?). Some weren't to my taste, a few were just OK (in my opinion, your mileage may vary), and a couple I really wanted to request ARCs of only to find out only excerpts were available. Well worth your time.

Fun quick way to be introduced to new authors. Led me to some great titles and authors, I ended up requesting several of the full titles that were included.

This book has a couple of chapters from a bunch of books. I found that it was enough to get me interested or know that it wasn’t the book for me. 

-I have already read A Cowboy to Remember by Rebekah Weatherspoon and enjoyed it. 
-I love Sabrina Jeffries so The Bachelor has been added to my TBR pile.  
-The Blacksmith Queen was not my taste in books so I will be passing on that one. 
-Bringing Down the Duke looks interesting because it takes place during the beginning of Women’s rights   
-The Bromance Book Club has a unique storyline and definitely goes on the TBR pile. 
-The Dating Charade takes you into the work of online dating in the excerpt but based on the summary, there is a huge plot twist down the road. It’s now in my TBR pile. 
-The Little Bookshop on the Seine is right up my alley. I loved the main character right away and can’t wait to read the rest!!
-Love Lettering has a storyline I haven’t seen before (at least from the excerpt). I’m interested to see where the story goes. 
-Not the Girl You Marry is a millennial’s romance which didn’t really appeal to me. 
-The Princess Plan has interesting characters and piqued my interest. It’s on the TBR.
-A Royal  Christmas Wish  looks like it will be a good one. I enjoyed the first chapter and really liked the main character so it in the TBR pile. 
-The Sunday Potluck Club starts out with a group of friends dealing with grief so I was a bit depressing to begin with but I like where the story is headed and I love Melissa Storm so it’s on the TBR pile now. 
-Unspoken has a storyline I haven’t really seen before so I’m  interested but I’m not in love with either of the main characters from reading the excerpt. I’m in the fence on this one. 

This was a neat concept because you get a feel for the author’s writing style and the characters. 
It was better than just getting to read a description/blurb and deciding to read or not to read.

Ooooooo can't wait for next year's new romances! The excerpts are just enough to get an idea and become interested. They give you something to look forward to.

Love the samples to help me discover new authors, stories, and books I would not normally pick up! Instead of looking at popular books and books promoted, this allows one to discover hidden gems.

So excited for an all-romance edition of Buzz Books! So many amazing new titles are on my radar and I can't wait to read them now!

I always enjoy getting a sneak peek at some titles coming out, and found several more to add to my to-read list in this collection! In particular I'm looking forward to reading Bringing Down the Duke by Evie Dunmore, The Princess Plan by Julia London, Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn, The Blacksmith Queen by G.A. Aiken, and The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa K. Adams.

This is first chapters of many romances coming out this fall. Many sound interesting so I've added them to my to-read list on good reads.

This was my first Buzz Book and I loved it. I enjoyed readings no some excerpts from a few books I had my eye on already and even some books I wouldn’t have normally given a second look. Can’t wait for a few of these to come out!

Great synopsis!  I really love these Buzz Books.  Great way to parse through some of the thousands of books that are coming out during the year.
