My review policy is pretty simple! I will read just about any book that you want me to review, however, you must keep in mind that I might get quite a few requests! While I tend to read pretty quickly, this is not all that I do during the day! I do also have 3 children, 1 who is at home with me all day & the others are here when they are not in school!

My review will include the following;

  • Book Cover (must be provided by you)
  • Synopsis
  • Links to the Author (Blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc)
  • Links to buy the book where available (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc)
  • My review, which I will also post on Goodreads & Amazon – Should you want anywhere else, that can be arranged.

How long does it take for you to review?

I will try my hardest to get your book read & the review posted with in 1 month of receiving your book. Generally, when I start a book, I have it read in a maximum of 3 days.

I will email you & give you an approximate date – depending on my current reading schedule. If I give you a date, you can almost always expect me to keep that date! If I am not able to get your book finished on time, I will email you to let you know. If you have a specific deadline that you need your book read by, please let me know & we can chat about it.

What Genres will you review?

Honestly, there isn’t much that I won’t read! I absolutely love Contemporary Romance, but would also read other things! As long as there isn’t too much horror & gore, I’ll read it! Erotica is fine also! I have really come to enjoy reading Historical Romance 🙂

I will always give my honest opinion! If for some reason I am unable to give 4-5 stars, I will let you know why, to see if you want to continue with the review! 

I look forward to hearing from you!


  1. Hi there,

    My name is Alana Frogley (Pen Name Alana C. Jones). I’ve recently published a book called, ‘The Mindful Parenting Handbook’.

    It’s a great short-read E-Book (40 pages) that includes information about the Neuroscience and brain benefits behind Mindfulness Practices, both for children and adults. It also explains and teaches the reader several meditation and guided imagery techniques. And, as a bonus, the book concludes with many useful tips on how to begin to weave the practice of living mindfully into everyday activities.

    Here is the link to the book page on Amazon:

    I’m wondering if you would be interested in reviewing or advertising my book on your website? If so, I’d be happy to gift the book to you in return for a quick review posted on the book page.

    Thanks for your consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you.


    Alana Frogley.

  2. Hallo Cali

    I see from your website that you enjoy reading literary fiction and wondered if you would be interested in reviewing either of my two contemporary novels, Chergui’s Child or Daughters of the Lake, both available in Kindle format from Amazon and classified as literary fiction.

    Chergui’s Child is categorised as psychological literary fiction and was released on June 3, 2015.

    This is the blurb:

    “Olivia is recovering from a traumatic event five years earlier when she is summoned to the bedside of her dying aunt, Dorothy. Shortly afterwards, she learns that her aunt has left her a large sum of money. She also receives a letter with a startling revelation. From Morocco to London to the south of France, this is the story of one woman’s journey to make her life whole again.”

    Links to Amazon:

    Daughters of the Lake is categorised as literary fiction and was released on November 28, 2014.

    Madalena invites her four adult children to Switzerland to celebrate her hotel’s fortieth anniversary, unaware of their tensions and secrets. As the day of the celebration approaches, confused emotions take hold, and the occasion goes badly wrong. Set against a backdrop of mountains and lakes, this is a story of love, betrayal and family conflict.

  3. Hey there!

    My most recent book — Chick Lit (And Other Formulas For Life) — was released last week and I would absolutely love it if you would be interested in reviewing it.

    Chick Lit (And Other Formulas For Life) is a NA/chick lit novel that deals with the confusion that comes when you are out of college and at a loss for what to do next. It is about the crossroads we all inevitably come to in our personal, professional, and romantic lives — and it is about choosing between the safe & predictable and the risky. Below is more information regarding my book. I would be able to send the ebook version of my book in mobi or epub — whichever is easiest/most compatible — if that is all right.

    I’m a contributing writer for the Huffington Post, Elite Daily, HelloGiggles, and Thought Catalog. I’m also the author of I’m Just Here for the Free Scrutiny: One Model’s Tale of Insanity and Inanity in the Wonderful World of Fashion.

    Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

    All the best,

  6. Hi, Cali,
    I am reaching out about my debut novel, THE CONJURERS, which is publishing on June 1st. It is an 88,000-word historical fantasy—a fast-paced magical adventure set in the 14th century, with action spanning the breadth of Europe, from Genoa to Ireland. The Conjurers is crafted with rich language and bold, complex characters I believe your readers will love.

    Orphaned in the year 1380, Eamon and Caitlin flee their home in the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland. The siblings can pacify savage wolves and control forces of nature, but only the murderers hunting them know why.

    As Eamon and Caitlin fight for survival, Teresa de Borja, the spirited daughter of a Genovese nobleman, develops an inexplicable ability to move objects with her mind. When her brother is murdered and her father imprisoned through machinations of the reclusive alchemist, Maestro Lodovicetti, her sheltered life changes forever.

    Journeys of discovery and the pursuit of blood vendetta bring Eamon, Caitlin and Teresa together across the stunning backdrop of medieval Europe. The three must master their powers and defeat a cabal of the world’s greatest magi or be killed as the Age of Kings comes to an end and a tyranny of sorcerers begins.

    Please let me know if you have an interest. If so, I can send you a copy in print or in an electronic format (epub, mobi or pdf). Thank you very much in advance for your consideration.

  8. Dear Cali,
    Hello! It is a pleasure to meet you. I was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing my novel, Blackbeard’s Daughter. It is from the historical fiction genre, and it is a self-published e-book that was released on February 15, 2016. I have included a blurb below.

    Colonial dreams have become piratical nightmares. Margaret’s life takes one disastrous turn after the other as she confronts the perils of murder, war, and revenge. When her father decides to pursue criminal mischief aboard a pirate’s vessel, Margaret joins him in an effort to save his life. Though unsuccessful, Margaret discovers the unforgettable treasure that her father has left her: love, laughter, and an unquenchable spirit for adventure.

    Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you! Have a wonderful day.

  9. Carnal Obsession: His Heart’s Prisoner
    M/F erotic romance with BDSM element
    267 pages release date 1-30-17

    I’m writing to offer my latest book, Carnal Obsession: His Heart’s Prisoner, for your consideration for review. I know time is precious for us all so if you don’t have the time or interest, I certainly understand. It seems there’s never enough time, especially this time of year. I’ve included the blurb to give you an idea of what it’s about.
    Life on the street molds emotional athletes.
    Three years ago, her brother’s death marked the beginning of Kendra’s new life, an existence with no home, no family, and no friends. Time in the underground byways toughened her emotional shell with the loose association of like-minded street rats where survival meant compromise and constant vigilance.
    Before he died, Billy had sent her a package in care of his teammate, Conner. For Kendra, re-entrance into polite society comes with a deadly price, as betrayal comes from both sides of the grave.
    Conner Crofton owns the BDSM club Ambrosia. After failing to protect his teammate on their last covert mission, penance takes form as a promise to safeguard Billy’s little sister, a girl he’d unknowingly remanded to a world of darkness and uncertainty, deception and psychopathic stalkers.
    The past will always haunt us. Each must earn forgiveness and trust as passion, guilt, deception, and betrayal, interweave a destiny formed long ago. A romantic suspense with a twist.

    Greetings Jessica,
    After reading through ‘Cali’s Book Reviews’ site, I do hope I got that right – Jessica or Cali? If I did not, please forgive the mistake.
    My book, Where Destiny Commands, was published on Amazon on 3/20/18. It has just received its first review by T. R Robinson Publications which has been posted on that website, as well as on, both, Amazon and Goodreads. I should be truly grateful if you would find the time, somehow, to review it as well. The story takes place during the waning years of the British Raj, and I have given a brief summary below.
    It is 1940 when a young Indian doctor joins the British Indian Army. The war takes him from his home town of Calcutta, in India, to the Middle East where global history is in the making, and events of the day will change and divide the peoples of this world for decades to come. With his Battalion, The Prince of Wales’s Own 2/4 Gurkha Rifles, he advances through Iraq, Syria and Persia to Cairo and the erupting deserts of North Africa. Serendipity plays its hand in Cairo, a tumultuous city of political intrigue and espionage seething with Allied forces from all over the world. There he meets a young woman who has fled the Armenian genocide in Turkey to find safe haven in Egypt. His capture on a fateful day in June 1942 by Erwin Rommel’s Afrika Korps in the chaotic Battle of the Cauldron, cannot deter their destiny. Despite separation and the global turmoil surrounding them, the story of their love transcends the tragedies of war, the boundaries of far flung countries, and the barriers of time and fate.
    This is the story of my parents. Twelve years of careful research and writing went into its creation, and the resources I used were many. The page count is 567 pages, and it is available in, both, Kindle and paperback formats. I should be happy to send you any further information you might require.
    Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.
    Regards, Leila Sen (

  12. Title: The Golden Age of Everything
    Author: Richard Moore
    Genre: sci-fi/fantasy
    Length: 20,000 words
    Amazon link:

    Book blurb:The Golden Age of Everything is a fast paced, hilarious, adventure novella of style, wit, and depth. It’s the story of Ritch Speerat who, one billion years in the future, makes an attempt at psychological self-improvement. It has giant pizza-delivering rodents, enchanted roadways, weird spells, strange magic items, golden skyscrapers, a singing/dancing army, ghastly demons, villainous cannibals, multiple One True Laws, and a pot smoking dragon, all of which come together like water in a funnel.

    A study in contrasts, The Golden Age of Everything juxtaposes: mature psychological issues with sophomoric humor, familial abandonment with beneficial murder, and suicide with laughter, and more.

    Written with the structural vigor of a sonnet and the efficient calculation of a computer program, The Golden Age of Everything is sure to enhance the golden age that is your life.
