I really enjoyed this big book of excerpts. There were so many that was entertaining and made me wish it lasted just a little bit longer. I made an extensive list on books that I’m waiting to be published, as well as requested some from publishers on NetGalley as well. I’m tell you if you want discover new books and don’t where to begin...start here.

I love Buzz Books. They're free, what's not to love about that, and there are several chapters in each sample, enough to evaluate whether you'll like a book or not. I found four to request ARCs of: The Cul-de-Sac War, ROMEantically Challenged, The Ballad of Hattie Taylor, and the Roommate. I would have requested more, but my TBR list was getting too long!

There's something for everyone in this edition. LBGT, animal lovers, western romance, Caribbean romance (?), an Amish mystery, truly a little bit of everything.

My thanks to Publishers Lunch and Netgalley. I received an ARC in exchange for agreement to review; my opinions are my own.

I recently learned about this publication that provides excerpts from soon-to-be -published books. It is a handy way to preview books that might interest you and to learn about new authors. I am always looking for new authors to read and for new approaches to the romance genre. I will be looking forward to reading this each time it is published.

"Buzz Books 2020 – Romance"
A great resource for finding your next TBR book.  
I used the summary to decide whether I cared to read the first chapter..
and the First Chapter to decide If that book was headed for my TBR list.
This collection held a good variety for reading choices.

Buzz books,2020 Romance By Publishers Lunch 

This is a quick snapshot of how NetGalley operates and there system. Then it’s a look at upcoming Romance books coming out that is a wonderful mixture of fresh new authors and established authors. I think it’s a great way to get a synopsis of titles and authors that you might not normally have considered because so many books come out on a daily basis, but this just gives you a chance to view a select mixture!  I hope to get The RoomMate , Paris is Always a Good Idea and Follow Your Heart! I normally would not have chosen these books, but I hopefully will get them, if not I have them in my calendar to purchase because they sound fun and interesting! 
I received this from NetGalley and I am willingly giving my thoughts and opinions!

I haven’t heard of many of these books, but several of them look good, based on the excerpts. I’m especially excited about “A Duke, The Lady, and a Baby”!

This was an excellent sampler of some of the biggest books yet to come in 2020, including:

- How to Fail at Flirting by Denise Williams
- The Duke, the Lady and a Baby by Vanessa Riley

The samples are about two chapters or so, depending on the novel. Definitely enough to get the flavor of the book. Each book contains a summary at the top, publication info, a bio of the author and a link to request the full ARC. 

I’m blown away by how great it was to have a romance look book like this. Highly recommend! 

Also, sidenote: these stories were Senate-heavy. Three included stories with senator characters. As a politico, it was amazing to see political romance novels.

Hi everyone!
As always the list is amazing. If you love this genre and need some recommendations you should definitely read this.
I’ve already said this in another review of ‘Buzz Books 2020’ but the thing I love the most about this list is that for each book there is an excerpt for 1-2 chapters, which can help you realize if you’re gonna like the book, because sometimes the blurb isn’t enough! 
I loved so many books and can’t wait to read them! 
Some of them I already had on my TBR because I saw them on netgalley but didn’t get them in time.

Can't review the content as it's only excerpts of upcoming books, but the samples look super intriguing. Will keep an eye out for the books!

I loved reading Buzz Books because I can see both a quick summary of the novel and then dive into a longer excerpt of the book. This is a great way to test out the author and preview the writing before picking up the full book. It's also very helpful that the link to request the book on NetGalley and the publisher's contact information is available with each title. I'm adding so many of these books to my list!

Lots of fun books here!  I can't wait to read the historicals.  I'm always open to new contemporaries, so this is a great opportunity to sample some new authors.

As a first time user of this edition of Buzz Books 2020: Romance, I was pleased to see a summary of the books along with at least the first chapter or more in some cases. I also liked the fact that in at least once case the author's name was given along with the pen name they are using for their listing in this edition. I understand not all types of romance can make the list, however,  this is the one area that I think improvement could be made. There are so many micro genres in the romance that even if you went with one book from each main genre there would be even more variety and likely would be used by more romance readers.
