Review Sites


Below you will find descriptions and links to known review sites where authors can submit their books for reviews:

The Long and Short of It
The Long and the Short of It hopes to contribute to the Romantic Fiction world in a positive way.  Our philosophy is:  If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
The Long and the Short of It consists of two segments. LASR is our non-erotic site and Whipped Cream is our site for erotic romance. Both sites strive to bring you the best in Romantic Fiction. You will find author interviews, free short stories, contests and fun activities in both segments. Please note, our Whipped Cream segment is reserved for readers aged eighteen or older, because of the adult content of that segment.
You'll only find positive reviews in the reviews sections of each segment. This doesn't mean we like everything we read -- far from it.  What it does mean is, we only post reviews of those books we like.  There are enough reviews sites and various blogs that are "snarky" or negative.  We do not choose to be one of them.
Our policy:  If we have a book or story submitted to us for review, and the first reviewer doesn't like it, it is reassigned to another reviewer.  If that reviewer doesn't like it, it is forwarded to one of the owners of this site.  If we agree with their assessment, an email will be sent to the author or publisher, declining to review their story.
We strive to be both honest and positive and hope that this resonates with you. 
We also have Yahoo groups for both Whipped Cream and LASR where we offer Q&A days for our interviewed authors and free Saturday chats for publishers and authors.
To request any of our services please email us at

The Muse Book Reviews:
The Muse Book Reviews welcomes published books from new and seasoned writers. Although print books are preferable, ebooks/PDFs will also be considered. For more information on our affiliated award-winning site,
Enchanting Reviews:
Welcome to Enchanting Reviews, where our reviews are as enchanting as the books we read.  We are your 'Romantic Element Reviewers' - any book that has a romantic element in it, even if it is not a "typical romance", is up for review. Authors such as Charlaine Harris, Carrie Vaughn, Stephanie Rowe, MaryJanice Davidson and Laurell K Hamilton comprise some of what we have reviewed. We are dedicated to romance in all of its stages and many forms, including erotica, inspirational, and young adult.  Visit our site to see our reviews, contest information, and chat schedule.  Visit our Rave Reviews page to see a list of the books our reviewers loved and you just might end up with a new favorite author!
Enchanting Reviews is on the hunt for a few good reviewers to join our team.  Do you like to read romances and wish you could tell the author how much you enjoyed their work? Here is your chance! Are you an author yourself and want some additional exposure? If either of these fits you, why not join our review team? If you have ever told a friend about a book you loved or hated, you have what it takes to be a reviewer.  To be a part of this new and exciting adventure, please send an email to
We are also looking for new books to review.  Please send our review coordinator, dawn, an e-mail at  Authors - if you are looking for a well rounded place to have your book reviewed by fellow authors and fans of romance, please drop us a line or visit our website and send us a message from the CONTACT page.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a review from every request we receive.  When you send a query, please include TITLE, AUTHOR, PUBLISHER, GENRE, RELEASE DATE, PRICE, NUMBER OF PAGES, and BOOK BLURB.  We will send your review request out to our reviewers and once we have a reviewer wanting to read your book, we will contact you personally.  It typically takes six weeks from the time the reviewer receives the book for a final review to be mailed to you for approval to post on our website.  Thanks and hope to see you at Enchanting Reviews soon!

small publishers and are proud to give readers a look at some of the best that's available today. For the most part, our reviews are positive--because our reviewers don't bother finishing most books they don't enjoy, and submitting is no guarantee that a book will be reviewed. We prefer to review books that have been published recently although we will, occasionally, review an older book.
For readers, we believe that we review many of the best in current fiction--both from best-selling authors and from authors you might not yet have discovered.

Just Erotic Romance Reviews

Blue City Romance:
Reviews mostly romance, hence the name, but the genre can be erotic, sweet, gay or lesbian. Contact them through city_romance to discuss a possible review.

Red Roses For Authors was set up to review romance books.  We like to review new authors if we can, because we know how hard it is to get reviews unless you already have a name.  We review and interview authors and we have Featured Authors and also the Christmas Awards.  For the Christmas Awards the reviewers choose the books they have liked best and then we invite readers to vote for their favourite.  The awards were for short and full length books last year.  This year I think we may have more categories.  The winner receives a small prize to keep as a keepsake of their win.
The email address to send reviews is at the website.
