This is a great resource! I have been reading more romance lately so I am excited by the opportunity to sample these upcoming books. I plan to feature quite a few of these books on my blog during the upcoming months.

I always love when these Buzz Books come available. It's an awesome way to be exposed to books you normally wouldn't reach for. It takes you out of your comfort zone. You get to read a few chapters of a book to see if you are going to like it or not. The best part is there is usually a link at the end of each one to click on to request! Brilliant!!

I always look forward to Buzz Books, it's such a great way to sift through all the selections that NetGalley offers. It's also fantastic for discovering new authors. Immediately, two books caught my attention: "Time Bridge: Cassie", by Annie Becker, has an interesting time-travel premise and seems like a fast paced, fun book to read; also, the excerpt for "Their Perfect Melody" by Priscilla Oliveras gets major points in my book for including well-written Spanish (they had me at "María" with an accent on the "i"!).

I’ve only recently discovered Buzz Books and the excerpts of imminent releases and have to admit it’s a very good way to try new authors. There are two included here (Karen Rose and Shelly Laurenston) who are auto buys for me due to very good reasons. Ms Rose writes the darkest romance suspense that I’ve ever read and Ms Laurenston always delivers insanely hilarious characters with a paranormal edge. So straight away two other stories here caught my imagination , Annie Becker whilst new to me certainly pens a very unique time travel idea with from what I’ve read here a delicious and very naughty twist ! It certainly fits into my preferred paranormal style although just how a happy ending will be achieved I’ve yet to discover so this is going on my wish list. Now I don’t read a lot of what’s described as contemporary romance but The Memory House really captured my interest with a heroine who truly needs her life turning around and I’m very keen to find out what Rachel Hauck has planned. Obviously there’s more here to tempt readers from historical, second chance romance and even a sports romance so I think if like me you enjoy knowing there’s going to be a happy ending no matter how much angst before it then something here will appeal. I thoroughly enjoyed these snippets although if honest at times wanted much more but like everyone else I guess I have to wait for release day. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

Previews of many upcoming books! Reading the previews wet my appetite and blew my book budget on preordering a lot of the books covered in the previews. The books I’m especially excited about are: In A Badger Way by Shelly Laurenston which are some of the funniest paranormal stories that I read. Intercepted by Alexa Martin which I preorder just on the preview! Solace Island by Meg Tilly which wanted to read right away!

This is a great reference guide for upcoming romance titles. It includes a collection of excerpts of soon-to-be-published romance books for 2018. 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 ON MAGNOLIA LANE y Denise Hunter. Overall, a great list of information on buzzing romance titles for 2018.

I love Buzz Books, they give you a little snippet of multiple stories and introduce you to authors that you may well have overlooked. There's just enough to get you interested and figure out if it's a book or style of writing that you may like, and there were definitely a few new authors to me in here that I want to read - I especially loved the Judith McNaught and Priscilla Oliveras excerpts. There's also the option to request/read them at the end of each excerpt which I really like. Very clever idea.

I loved the chance to read these books. I have to say I mainly wanted Shelly Laurenston’s book but a few others peaked my interest. I loved Laurenston’s so much I hoped I got picked to read it early and thank goodness I got picked, I enjoyed Jane Feather’s book too. It’s been a while since I’ve read her but she’s a master of historical romance. I liked Say your sorry too. Very suspenseful and a page turner of epic proportions! The rest I couldn’t quite finish though. .

Was this review helpful?

I am only reviewing the titles in the Fantasy or Sci-Fi genres. Starting with Time Bridge: Cassie by Annie Becker. The prologue begins with the cliche of mood being as dark as the night, and hammers this is. With such an unoriginal opening I found myself reading everything with an eye out for more of these pithy overused statements, and found several others. All of which brought me farther and farther away from the story line. Overall: Not a book be added to my tbr list. Next up: Unchained by Helen Hardt. She begins with very graphic, violent imagery reminiscent of the Anita Blake series. Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton will most likely enjoy this. As for myself I like a little less gore with my romance. Next: Shelly Laurenston's In A Badger Way. I must admit that Ms. Laurenston is a favorite of mine and I do love her honey badger shape-shifters. This book picks up soon after the ending of the first in this particular series Hot and Badgered. Fans will love to see the story of Stevie and Shen, plus most likely large doses of Kyle. New readers most likely don't want to pick this up as their first book. Like Hot and Badgered, In a Badger Way seems to rely heavily on characters from the Pride Stories series. For long time readers it is fun to see old characters pop up a few years older than last seen. But new readers might be slightly confused. Last: Ignite by Angel Payne. Like the Badger book before this is a second book in a series. The verbiage used makes it feel like a Young Adult Book, and thrilling story line that makes me want to share with my young teen. The amount of sexual references, however, in this small preview makes me very leery of sending it her way. Overall: new series for my tbr list, but warnings on it to keep my teen and tween out.

This is a great resource! I love reading more romance and am excited by the opportunity to sample upcoming books. I plan to feature quite a few of these books on my blog.

Was this review helpful?

This was the first one of these that I have received, and I really loved how all of the upcoming books were listed, first by synopsis, and then some excerpts. I appreciated how they were divided into type (ie Contemporary Romance, Paranormal, etc.). It made it easier to skip the sections I knew I wouldn’t be interested in. I also liked that at the end of some excerpts I was able to “Read Now” or Request a few of the suggested titles. I was excited to get “Read Now” for “As Good As the First Time” by K.M. Jackson, and “Unchained” by Helen Hardt. I will be looking forward to “Couldn’t Ask for More” by Kianna Alexander and “Stripped” by Zoey Castille. In addition, I found a new series that I want to try, The Blue Ridge Series by Denise Hunter. I live near the Blue Ridge Mountains, so that’s a plus, not to mention that the book on this list is the last one and had a reference to You’ve Got Mail (one of my favorite movies). I don’t want to start a series with the last book, so I look forward to getting into this one from the beginning. All in all, this was very helpful, and I will definitely be looking at more of these compilations in the future! Thank you to Netgalley for a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review. These are the samples that are included in the BuzzBooks Romance collection – each excerpt I’ve scored on a scale of 1-5 on my interest in reading the whole book: Time Bridge: Cassie by Annie Becker (Oct 16, 2018) – The book summary sounded a little dark, but the time travel aspect was interesting. The book reminded me a lot of books I’ve read in the past by John A. Heldt. Score: 3.5 Tempt Me with Diamonds by Jane Feather (Jan 29, 2019) – I don’t particularly like the race horse aspect that seemed to be a part of the book’s plot. Also the heroine sounds kind of drama-loving, it didn’t sound like it was for me but who knows based off of two chapters. Score: 1.75 Unchained by Helen Hardt (Blood Bond Saga Book 1) (Oct 2, 2018) – Sounded pretty interesting, maybe a little cliched (vamp falls in love with a human) but the characters sounded good. Score: 3.75 The Memory House by Rachel Hauck (April 2, 2019) – I liked the puppy and the mystery baby, story peaked my interest a good amount. Score: 4.25 On Magnolia Lane by Denise Hunter (Last book in the Blue Ridge Romance series) (Nov 6, 2018) – I didn’t find anything in the excerpt overly intriguing, it was ok but didn’t seem exciting. Score: 2.5 As Good as the First Time by K.M. Jackson (Sugar Lake novel) (Oct 30, 2018) – This one sounded interesting, I was eager to learn about what had happened to Clayton and his previous relationship. Score: 4.0 In a Badger Way by Shelly Laurenston (March 26, 2019) – I’ve never been a huge fan of the whole shifter thing. Also there were just so many characters within th efirst two chapters I couldn’t keep everything straight. Score: 1.0 Intercepted by Alexa Martin (Sept 11, 2018) – I got pretty hooked in the story, I’m interested to see what happens with Marlee (even though see was acting a little like a doormat). Score: 4.25 The Sweetest Thing by Judith McNaught (Oct 23, 2018) – First couple chapters seemed pretty cheesy but I’d be interested to hear more about what the TV show was about. Score: 2.75 Their Perfect Melody (Matched to Perfection) by Priscilla Oliveras (Nov 27, 2018) – Seemed ok. Nothing overly thrilling in the first couple chapters. Score: 2.5 Ignite by Angel Payne (Volume 2 – Parts 4-6) (July 31, 2018) – This seemed super interesting, I’ve never read a romance novel with a super hero before. The first couple chapters of this were interesting and steamy. Score: 4.0 The Rancher by Kate Pearce (Nov 27, 2018) – It sounded ok but there were a LOT of characters introduced in the first couple chapters, I could barely keep it straight. It probably would’ve been easier if I had read the previous books. THe characters sounded interesting though. Score: 3.0 Say You’re Sorry by Karen Rose (Feb 12, 2019) – LOVE the involvement of the cult aspect, that always gets me interested. This one sounded like it would be really interesting! Score: 4.5 Solace Island Island by Meg Tilly (Nov 6, 2018) – I loved how fierce the main character was, she had so much spark! And I loved that she gave her ex what he had coming to him, the first couple chapters really had me hooked. Score: 4.25

This was a great opportunity to check out my fall and winter reading

I am not a huge Romance fan but some these really drew me right on in and I so want to see how they progress. If you want bite-sized morsels without the commitment of a full book then I would recommend this and if you like any they give you the option of requesting it. #NetGalley is the best.

This was a wonderful collection of excerpts from upcoming novels by some outstanding authors. I enjoyed reading some of them and am looking forward to reading the entire books soon. I was especially interested in the one by Judith McNaught, since it has been so long since her last book. Rachel Hauck's book The Memory House is intriguing, too, as is Denise Hunter's new one. This is a great way to get previews of upcoming books to see if I think I'd enjoy them. There are several authors in this collection that I've read before and loved. I'm looking forward to their new books. Thanks for the chance to read this!

I love these books that give you a few chapters of a book. The format has introduced me to many new authors I had never heard of and may not have stumbled across on my own. The few chapters gives me a feel for their writing style and whether or not I will enjoy the whole book.. In some cases I may not be enamored of the writing but the storyline grabs me and I just have to buy the full version.. They also allow you to invest 10-15 minutes which might just be the amount of time you wait to get into an appointment. From this edition I especially like The Memory House by Rachel Hauck, Judith McNaught's The Sweetest Thing, Kate Pearce's The Rancher, Say You're Sorry by Karen Rose and Solace Island by Meg Tilly.

I loved the previous Buzz Books collections, and once again this one had me scoping out a bunch of new books, and adding them all to my TBR. I am most excited for Magnolia Lane, and Intercepted. A huge thank you to NetGalley for sending me a digital copy of these book previews in exchange for an honest review. I truly appreciate it!

If you are interested in knowing what constitutes the romance genre and what books are forthcoming, this is an excellent resource. In addition to an introduction, there are lists of books by subcategory, for example, paranormal romance, so you can easily find your interest. There are also a number of summaries and excerpts to read. Romance readers should enjoy this publication.

Great preview of published titles and upcoming titles for the 2018 year. I was familiar with many of the authors listed. If this was done for debut romance novelists as well, I know I would use it.

The excerpts in this guide were very helpful in our romance collection development. Thank you. We hope that the guide continues to be published.

Really exciting stuff to come soon, I love how so many of the books are by AoC. Romance is the genre to look for in the coming months and year 💞

This is a great way to see what is on the horizon, and get a sneak peak of some of the new books coming out. My favorite of these is hands down is In a Badger Way. I was really into reading it when *poof*... that was the end of the sneak peek. I can't wait for the book for itself.

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.

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.
