Review and Rating Policy

Here at Smokin’ Hot Book Blog,  I do cover reveals, Release Blitzes, Blog Tours, backlist title or ARC book reviews, and giveaways.

I'm not sure when (or if) I'll be able to read and review your book as I'm getting many requests per week on top of promos as well, so sometimes I'm just not able to do so. If at all possible, I would highly appreciate the arc delivered a minimum of three weeks in advance, upon agreement. Not only does it help me to have ample time to read and write a quality review, but it increases your chance of finding an open spot in my monthly scheduled books.  Often I've regretted to have had to decline a book that really intrigued me simply because I didn't have enough time.

Kindle .mobi format is my preferred choice if possible.

I read a wide variety of romance genres. From young adult, new adult, contemporary, women's fiction, historical, fantasy to paranormal.  If it has a good, quality romance, I'm open to it.
My reviews are always honest and free.

If you are interested in just a promo post instead of review, please send me the pertinent book details, and I'll help if possible. 

*IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND*  The following tropes and sub genres are not to my personal reading taste:

• love triangles
• M/M (male/male romance)
• cheating
• taboo
• plots glorifying abuse of any kind
• erotica books with little to no story, just one long sex scene (To each his own, but personally, I need a strong story, preferably character driven.)

When emailing me with review request please include:
  • Synopsis/blurb 
  • Goodreads and/or Amazon link if available 
  • Small excerpt so that I can get a feel for the writing style 
  • Genre 
  • When you want me to post the review 
If you're interested, contact me at:

Thank you for taking the time to read this to see if working together would be a good fit!
