Book Reviews And Their Benefits

I'm going to tie in two blog posts into one! Mainly, because I've finished the book I was reading last night, and although it was a good book; a Mills and Boon Blaze - an enjoyable hot read. There's not much else to say about it.

Becky Black covered on her blog once about authors thanking for reviews left for their books, etc. (Gosh, I'm mentioning Becky a lot lately :D). And it gets into a bit of a discussion, are you leaving a review as a reader or writer.

I always leave a review on Goodreads, for me as a reader than anything else, and for other readers too. And because it has the handy widget I transfer over to my blog, giving my blog posts different content from time to time.

I have occasionally transferred these reviews to the Mills and Boon site, and Choc Lit, and even Amazon, but it's rare, because it's just time consuming!

Hot fighter pilot cover!
Well, I received an email from Mills and Boon the other day asking if they could use part of a review I'd left on their site for a RIVA book, on the author's new book. It will get edited down to fit their requirements, but my name will be put on her book! Hundreds and thousands of books! (Depending how well it sells I suppose). They will send me a copy of the book as a thank you - I love free books! - so don't fear, I'll be posting pictures when it arrives! Plus, it means I get another RIVA to read and review!

So, below is the book review for my last book (I'll be honest, because of time, and I didn't really have that much to say about the book, it's short and sweet this time).

Oh, and this is the actual cover... can't seem to find it anywhere to get my librarian friend on Goodreads to change it. 

Think I'll pick up Liz Fielding's Flirting With Italian next.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a Mills and Boon Blaze, and it is HOT!

It's an enjoyable read, and interesting that it's the hero who's having to convince the heroine that they're meant to be together.

  1. That's cool that they're going to use your quote. And free books is always fun. The Blaze books are very hot indeed and have very sexy covers. Do they feature the hero on his own more than the other lines I wonder? I think I should do some research on that! :D And by research I mean drooling over hot guys...

    1. Yes, I couldn't believe the email when I saw it. I had a similar SQUEE factor to a publisher asking for full manuscript lol!

      Yes, is Blaze say Erotica? I would say it comes darn close.

      I agree with the research. Make sure you share :D


I love reading your comments and I will try to reply when I can. Thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to comment.
