I love love love the romance edition of Buzz Books! As a romcom lover, I eat this one up and add more and more to my TBR pile. I just wish I could be able to request every book that is available on there!

Jasmine Guillory, Scarlett St. Clair, Kennedy Ryan, Minerva Spencer and Abby Jimenez are all my auto-buy so this is an exciting sneak peek for me. The Minerva Spencer book is particularly outstandingly. Love all these authors' books and the excerpts give a good introduction of their books. All great romantic books. Looking forward to reading the actual books when it comes out!

Thanks to the publisher for the arc.

Oh my goodness!! So many delicious books coming out this fall. I'm so excited to read them all. I love how Buzz Books introduces you to so many books that aren't in my usual genre. I requested quite a few, downloaded a couple, and wrote the rest down to add to my ever growing and almost toppling TBR mountain.

I look forward to every edition of Buzz Books but Buzz Books Romance is my absolute favorite - I always download as soon as I see it and can't wait to flip through. This year is no exception - loved learning about some new books from favorite authors and adding others to my tbr from authors I don't know yet. Thanks Buzz Books and Netgalley for growing my romance TBR!

I am seeing this is the seventh installment of this, and after missing the first six I can say I will not be making that mistake again!

What a great way to get upcoming books out there with an opportunity for a sneak peak. Then at the end, the ability to request or read now based on whether the first part intrigued the reader. I appreciate that because, if the book seemed promising to me and I was interested in reading more, I could request. I truly only do want to request books that I feel I can read and provide feedback in a meaningful timeframe, and this allowed me to peek rather than commit right away.

I also appreciate that there is a blend of newer authors in addition to well-established authors. This draws the reader in, yet allows for newer authors to be read and recognized as well.

Thank you for the opportunity for these sneak peaks, and I look forward to (hopefully) reading some new books and discovering new authors!

For me, this was a perfect combination of authors I already love, authors I’ve been planning to investigate, and authors who are completely new to me. Thanks to Netgalley for several additions to my already extensive to-be-read list!

Absolutely LOVE the opportunity to read these excerpts! I am a great fan of these Buzz Books samplers, and to get a preview of exciting upcoming titles is a huge treat! Helps me determine titles to request and review. Thank you!

Not only did this sampler allow me to read two-chapter excerpts from some of my all-time favorite authors’ upcoming books, but it gave me some new authors and titles to add to my TBR, as well!! Such a great resource!

Was this review helpful?

A great collection of chapters from some amazing romance authors. I was familiar with some of these authors but many were new to me. I enjoyed being able to try out a few books and see which ones I'd enjoy and can then add to my list to get the full book when available. Some of the covers were so pretty that drew me in alone. I am excited to see some of these released. Thank you to the publisher for putting together this sampler and for allowing me to read it.

I loved to read excerpts from books that I'm really looking forward.
I'm particularly excited for some of my favorite authors: Kylie Scott, Kate Clayborn and Kennedy Ryan.

Really Looking forward to these upcoming 2022/23 romance titles! Particularly Abby Jimenez’s 5th book.

Was this review helpful?

I grabbed this for the preview of Kate Clayborn's Georgie All Along and Kennedy Ryan's Before I Let Go, but was thrilled to also get a preview of Anita Kelly's Something Wild & Wonderful. Very excited for all three. It was also nice to get peaks of books by authors I haven't read. Abby Jimenez and Taj McCoy's books look like books I'll request when they are available. Kylie Scott's End of Story has a really interesting premise.

A great tool! I have not grabbed these in the past but will continue to in the future. I loved getting short snips of new upcoming releases and the mix of authors all in my favorite genre! A great find!

So excited for this! This had excerpts for a couple of books I was interested in as well as others I hadn’t come across yet. Always fun to see if the upcoming books would get my attention and they did. I can’t wait for these books to get released.

Thanks to NetGalley and the Publishers the for excerpts.

A fantastic selection of great titles plus some of my favorite authors.
My favorite excerpt was definitely the one from Kennedy Ryan. Can't wait for Before I Let Go to come out in November!

Thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review

Buzz Books: Romance is a compilation of excerpts from upcoming romance book releases that I’m thrilled to read! Most of them are my favorite authors, and reading about their soon=to-be-released books makes me eager for more—a beautiful mix of touching and fun books. I have not read any books from the two authors on the list, and after reading their books excerpt, I’m likely to read their upcoming books because I enjoy their writing styles. An excellent compilation; I’m happy I checked out on a whim!

Thank you so much for this, NetGalley, and the publishers on the list.

Romance is not a genre I read much of, but I cannot resist seeing what is coming up with this wonderful opportunity to have a sneak preview and the samples given of the books. What stood out for me is Abby Jimenez’s novel, I really like this writer. Always appreciate the great service buzz books and the temptations of upcoming books. Many thanks for this!

Buzz Books adds to my reading list!

It is always dangerous when I get to read all the excerpts of the upcoming books because it adds to all the books I want to request to review or buy to read.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Was this review helpful?

I love these buzz books samplers. They let me know about upcoming releases and give me snippets so I can better decide if something is a good fit for me to request. I found one title in here that I was unaware of previously, but am now super excited to read. Unfortunately it was not available to request just yet, but I will be keeping an eye out for it!

Was this review helpful?

I may not get all the arcs I want from this list, but this will certainly tide me over till the official release dates regardless! Kate Clayborn is quickly becoming a favorite of mine and Jasmine Guillory can do no wrong. Excited for Taj McCoy’s take on a love triangle. Loved these snippets so much!

A catalogue of prepublication book excerpts from 15 amazing authors like Kennedy Ryan, Scarlett St.Clair and Abby Jimenez.

All excerpts contain 1 to 2 chapter of one of their upcoming books!

An amazing compilation of snippets from the upcoming titles!

I'm really interested in reading Before I Let Go by Kennedy Ryan, the description reminded me of All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover and I've really enjoyed it!

Queen of Myth and Monsters by Scarlett St. Clair sounds AMAZING. A fantasy romance with vampires and goddesses?? December cant come fast enough.

The Rewin's cover (written by Allison Winn Scotch) is the embodiment of Champagne Problems by Taylor Swift to me and I love that song so much. Also, this sounds like a second chance romance story and it's one of my favorites.

Thank you Netgalley for providing this compilation & letting me find these new titles to eagerly wait for!

This book provides you a sampling of several new Romance books about to hit the market. These book samples include romance of every shape, size, and color and I found some lighthearted chick lit books to add to my TBR list.

I love getting a sneak peek into the upcoming releases and always find at least a few to add to my TBR. I am almost exclusively a romance reader, so having a guide specifically for the romance genre feels like an extra special treat!

Thank you so much for putting these together!

This is the first time I've seen a Buzz Books dedicated to romance and I loved it. It included so many books coming out that I didn't yet know about! Added many to my list and enjoyed getting to sample the ones I was interested in.

Buzz Books 2022 Romance is a great resource to sample a bunch of upcoming romances across romantic subgenres. I highly recommend romance readers check out Buzz Books 2022 Romance to help build their TBRs with the buzziest upcoming titles.

I'm especially excited for Georgie, All Along by Kate Clayborn, Yours Truly by Abby Jimenez, and Drunk on Love by Jasmine Guillory.

Many thanks to the authors and publishers who provided excerpts of their upcoming romances as well as Publishers Marketplace and NetGalley.

I'll be honest with you - I only downloaded this book to preview Abby Jimenez's new book BUT I ended up getting distracted for hours last sunday just reading through the whole thing. A class authors all compiled into one book? Yes please!

Was this review helpful?

I always appreciate getting these books with previews from upcoming titles. I liked all of them, but am only going to mention two of my favorites.

One was "The Boxing Baroness" by Minerva Spencer. I had to read the sample just to see how the author pulled off something so unlikely - and the answer is she did it very well. Another one was "Where the Sun Rises" by Anna Gomez and Kristoffer Polaha. I winced when she had her accident and then when she dealt with her understandably protective parents. These books are a great resource for any romance lover.

I picked this up for the preview of Georgie, All the Way by Kate Clayborn, but there were a number of upcoming releases that sparked my interest as well.

Future releases I’m most looking forward to:

Georgie, All the Way by Kate Clayborn
- It doesn’t take much but Clayborn’s name on a book to convince me to read it. Yet, “small-town bad boy turned grumpy hermit.” I’m doubly sold.

Gigi, Listening by Chantel Guertin
- I enjoyed the author’s previous release, Instamom, and this one has an equally intriguing premise.

Just My Type by Abby Jimenez
- I didn't love the author's first two books, but I recently read her newest and it was a great read. Therefore, I'm optimistic about this one. I love the setup for the hero along with their unique letter-writing courtship. Epistolary is my jam.

Zora Dizon Books Her Happy Ending by Taj McCoy
- A love triangle. Potential for angst? High. I'm in.

Before I Let Go by Kennedy Ryan
- I haven’t had much luck with the two books I’d previously read by this author, but I’m willing to try again for a married/divorced, second-chance romance. Also, the cover is gorgeous.

End of Story by Kylie Scott
- Wow, does this one sound fun. I’m not into all levels of magical realism in my fiction, but the potential in this one sounds perfect. Presented as a rom-com? Even better.

The Rewind by Allison Winn Scott
- I’m not sure if this is a true romance trope, but I LOVE the “accidentally married” or the “too inebriated to remember the wedding” trope. It can be similar to the marriage-of-convenience trope. Another one that I enjoy. They’re rife with storyline potential.

I love this sampler collection! It is a great mix of authors I already know and love (Jasmine Guillory, Abby Jimenez, Kennedy Ryan) and authors I am not familiar with but am grateful to be introduced to. The excerpts are long enough to get me hooked and add the books to my TBR for when they are released. This is wonderfully curated and I will definitely be keeping up with future editions.

I was looking forward to two specific authors in this preview, but honestly, I found myself enjoying all the stories. I look forward to reading all of them in the future.

Was this review helpful?

I really love getting these previews! It’s a great way to get a taste of a book before committing to the entire thing, plus it’s a great way to sample new-to-you authors. This volume had quite a few romance novels that appealed to me. Among the ones I’ll be looking to read in full are:
⁃ Georgie, All Along by Kate Clayborn
⁃ Drunk on Love by Jasmine Guillory
⁃ Just My Type by Abby Jimenez
⁃ Zora Dizon Books Her Happy Ending by Taj McCoy
⁃ End of Story by Kylie Scott
⁃ The Boxing Baroness by Minerva Spencer
⁃ The Many Dates of Indigo by Amber D. Samuel
⁃ Something Wild & Wonderful by Anita Kelly
⁃ The Rewind by Allison Winn Scotch

Note: I received my copy via NetGalley, but this ebook is available to everyone, free of charge, on Amazon and Barnes & Noble's web sites.

Tons of teasers! My thoughts on the books included:

Kate Clayborn, Georgie All Along - Possible grumpy/sunshine? Main character returning to small town with old crush vibes. Immediately pulled me in. Want to read. ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️

Anna Gomez, Where the Sun Rises - Opposites attract, set in Hawaii with excellent diversity but unfortunately it didn't really grab me. Might be a slow-burning story but I wasn't feeling it. ✔️✔️

Chantel Guertin, Gigi, Listening - I'd seen this on NetGalley but the blurb didn't pull me in. However, it reads better than it initially sounds. Will probably read. ✔️✔️✔️

Jasmine Guillory, Drunk On love - Family owned winery. Meets new (back) in town man at local bar. Left wanting more! Will read. ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️

Sarah Hawley, A Witch's Guide To Fake-Dating a Demon - Accidentally summons a demon. So much humour. I LOVED this! Definitely want to read ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️

Abby Jimenez, Just My Type - Following Briana from POYW. I mean, it's Abby Jimenez! Of COURSE I want to read more!! And Jacob? Already love that cinnamon roll and his hilarious family 🥰 ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️++++++

Anita Kelly, Something Wild & Wonderful - Found Family m/m romance. Loved the blurb. As meet-cutes go, this one was pretty exhilarating! Would love to read more. ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️

Taj McCoy, Zora Dizon Books Her Happy Ending - Book store owner love triangle with author and his friend. Want to read. ✔️✔️✔️✔️

Kennedy Ryan, Before I Let Go - second chance romance with HUGE stakes. Want to read. ✔️✔️✔️✔️

Amber D. Samuel, The Many Dates of Indigo - Best friend romance. Didn't really grab me but might get better. ✔️✔️

Kylie Scott, End Of Story - Ex's best friend in fixer-up DIY tale with a twist. Loved the blurb and really enjoyed the extract. Want to read. ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️

Minerva Spencer, The Boxing Baroness- DNR as not a genre I enjoy reading.

Scarlett St. Clair, Queen of Myth And Monsters - DNR as not a genre I enjoy reading.

Anna Todd, The Falling - ex soldier with emotional wounds on base romance. Blurb was intriguing. Not my usual read but might give it a try. ✔️✔️✔️

Allison Winn Scotch, The Rewind - had me at the blurb! Very FRIENDS in Vegas vibes. Exes wake up married. Want to read! ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️

*Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to leave an honest review*

This is amazing!!!💕 What a great little compilation of excerpts/ teasers from tons of fabulous romance authors.

A lot of exciting titles coming out this year for the romance genre! I'm specially excited for Kennedy Ryan's new book as I love everything she writes, but this preview definitely put some other titles on my radar!

Was this review helpful?

I love that there's a separate Buzz Books just for romance reads!

Unlike the more general Buzz Books, the romance installment just has a table of contents (with a list of authors, titles, and publishers for the books excerpted), introduction, and 15 book excerpts - you won't find a giant list of romance titles here. But, you *will* find summaries and excerpts from hot new titles!

I also greatly appreciate that the Buzz Books resources are free for ALL readers, available wherever you shop for e-books.

I came for the Kate Clayborn and Abby Jimenez teasers and they did not disappoint! I was surprised and excited to preview some other favorite authors - Anita Kelly, Kennedy Ryan, Minerva Spencer, Jasmine Guillory - all were exciting reads. Fun to be introduced to the rest of the lot.
This is a great way to get through several books before we do our pre-orders in the library.
Thanks so much for the previews!
