Reviews & Promo

Review Guidelines:


Zipper Rippers reviews and promotes books in the M/M romance and erotic romance genre. Most sub-genres are accepted. Any heat level from sweet to scorching.

Preferred genres are:

Fairy Tale retellings (including modern versions)
Time Travel/Time slip
Romantic Erotic tales (including BDSM etc., as long as there is romance)

Genres NOT accepted for direct review are
werewolves/shifters, vampires etc.
Erotica without some form of romantic content.

Urban fantasy is accepted as long as there are no shifters involved - witches, wizards, fae/faeries are acceptable. I do not review series books as a rule,  I prefer stories that are stand-alone only or the first in the series if it can stand-alone. No MMF, but MMM will be considered.

I review books from Netgalley and Amazon Vine as well as my own purchases and I only accept a limited number of direct requests. Reviews will be posted here at Zipper Rippers, Goodreads and Amazon if the author requests it. Amazon have the final say over whether a review will appear on their site.

I only review e-copies. If a book would get less than 3 stars from me then I will decline the review.

Please email with Review Request M/M Romance in the subject line. Things to include with your request:
Your website or purchase link for the book
Format available (such as .mobi, pdf etc.)
