Review Policies & Requests

Hello, my fabulous authors!

We love discovering new books along with my current favorites, but due to personal schedules and the volume of requests we receive, we cannot always accept every book. This is nothing personal, and please understand that while we’d love to accept every request we receive, it just wouldn’t be humanly possible. Thank you for understanding.

NOTE: We are currently accepting very limited review requests; giving priority to author’s we’ve read in the past. 

PRIOR TO SENDING IN A REQUEST: Please note that DGR blog reviews ALL books we read; the high and the low stars. If you submit your request, you understand that it doesn’t guarantee you a high star review. We will never bash or poke fun of a book, but we will be honest.


  • Send me an email ( with the book cover, title, synopsis, and please let me know if it’s part of a series, serial or a standalone.

We love doing author and book spotlights with author interviews, character interviews, guest posts, excerpts and giveaways. If you’re interested in a spotlight by DGR, please feel free to email me.

We’re total mood reader, and as such we try not to accept too many reviews with a deadlines. The last thing we’d want to do is force ourselves to read a book we’re not in the mood for and have that affect our rating. If you are looking for a review within a certain time parameter, please note that in your email and we’ll try to accommodate it as much as possible.

We have a special place in our hearts for bad boys and alphaholes. But we don’t discriminate, we’ll spice things up with a nice guy every now and then too. Love tattoos and motorcycles, sexy Alpha heroes, and kick-ass heroines. Please note, we do not like to read books without a HEA.


5 Stars: I’m EXTREMELY stingy with my 5 stars. I’m saying super stingy. I’m a very picky reader and I reserve my 5 stars to books that will not only blow me away but leave me up till the buttcrack of dawn reading, thinking about it for days after, and wanting to reread it just so I can experience it again.
4 Stars: I loved it! It held my attention and I’d gladly recommend it.
3 Stars: I liked it but something just kept me from really loving it. I’d recommend it though I won’t be raving about it.
2 Stars: Meh. Not my cuppa and I struggled to finish.
1 Star: I hated it and barely finished.
DNF: I do not rate books I didn’t finish. Nor will I post a review for it on my blog, Amazon or B&N. I will post a short DNF review up on Goodreads summing up what didn’t work for me.

Our reviews:

  • Are always constructive. If we dislike a book, we will say exactly what didn’t work for us in a concise and constructive manner.
  • Are never mean spirited, rude, or bash an author. Professionalism is key here.
  • May at times include a teaser made by Lana from purchased stock images.
  • Are posted on the blog, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon
