Our Review and Hosting Policies


Bookish Temptations  is currently accepting either e-books (preferably in mobi, but will accept PDF format), galleys, ARC copies, and hard copies in either paperback or hardcover for review at this time on a limited basis from those authors, publishers, and PR representatives that we have worked with in the past. Due to our current backlog of requests we are not accepting requests from authors we haven’t worked with in the past unless we have received a referral from someone who is known to us.

We consider ourselves to be book bloggers, not professional reviewers.  Our goal is to simply share our love of great books with other readers; our reviews will not be a critical analysis of every sentence. All reviews will be honest reflections of the story read and will mainly consist of our thoughts and feelings and will not contain any details that would spoil the outcome for readers. Outside opinions will not influence our reviews and you can always expect a truthful, genuine opinion from this site.

We will try our best to read titles accepted for review in a timely manner. A deadline on a review will only be set if you indicate that the review be completed within a certain time frame. Reviews will be posted on our site as well as links provided to the review via our Twitter and Facebook sites.

***We will not accept unfinished/unpublished novels***

Genres of books accepted and preferred (including self published titles):

Contemporary Romance

New Adult Romance

Erotica (on a limited basis)

Historical Romance (on a limited basis)


Urban Fantasy

Dark Fantasy

Genres of books not (typically) accepted:

Science Fiction
Titles with religious undertones

Bookish Temptations will consider all requests, however, due to time constraints, interests in storyline topic and other matters, we may not accept all requests.We are selective in our book choices and tend to pick books that interest us most. Unfortunately, even though we may accept books that we think we’ll enjoy most, we cannot and will not guarantee a positive review.

We will never sell any ARC given to us and will never infringe on an author’s copyright regarding an eBook that we have received.

If a book has been given less than 3 stars (in rating terms), we will not review it, and we reserve the right to decline any promotional posts to that specific book; including author interviews, giveaways, etc.)

Interviews/Guest Posts/Blog Tours

We would be thrilled to host authors for guest posts, but we prefer them to be character based. We also love to host exclusive excerpts, teasers, deleted scenes, and outtakes with a minimum of 500 words. We will consider participation in cover reveals, and or a stop on a blog tour.

Please feel free to contact me for additional information.

Thank you for your interest in Bookish Temptations.

      Hello there 🙂
      Any one can recommend a book to us, but it’s usually an author or publicist who asks us to review a book.
      I’ve heard good things about Collide and it’s on my list of books to check out.
      Thanks for the heads up 🙂

    Just wondering if anyone has read Come Away With Me by Kristen Proby? I came across it while looking for something new to read while I wait for Reckless to be released. I thoroughly enjoyed Come Away With Me, and would recommend it.
