Best Romance Novel Reviews


This blog, in association with Best Romance Novels Today, is dedicated to posting the best romance novels we can find.

We scour the web, searching independent review sites for the best romance novels. We consider books from large publishers, and also gems from the small presses. Each book posted has earned at least one 5 star review from a respected reviewer. In addition, we check that novel's average star ranking on Amazon. If a book earns 5 stars from both sources, we post it here.

We're sure you'll find some wonderful books to read. Enjoy!

Saving Tampa is absolutely a winner. Jo Webnar has not only given us a story that has a plot we can identify with, but characters that are intelligent, gutsy, and also willing to go the distance in the name of truth and honour.” – Sandra, CK2S Kwips and Kritiques
