Keeping the reader in mind, we remain impartial when writing our reviews.  We believe in honesty and each review is the subjective opinion of the individual reviewer.  Our reviews will support our ratings and our ratings will be fair.

Due to the high volume of review requests we receive, we cannot guarantee that every book submitted will receive a review.  We will do our best to meet a 5-week turnaround time from  when a reviewer receives a book to when his or her review is published.

In addition:

We reserve the right to NOT review any book at our discretion. Again, we DO NOT review books intended for Young Adults

Our reviews are written with the reader in mind and so we cannot guarantee that every book will receive a glowing review.

Permission is granted to the author, publisher or designated agent to use our reviews in either their entirety or in partial snippets as long as the reviewer and Risqué Reviews are referenced.  The rights to all reviews published at Risqué are owned by Risqué Reviews, and are subject to copyright laws.

We also authorize publishers and authors to utilize the logos that can be found on the Publicity Graphics page or on the review page for books that receive these honors.

Publishers who regularly send us review requests are  invited to send their website banners to  for complimentary display in our Publisher Piazza.

Please note we do not always send out notices that your book has been reviewed. There are several ways you can easily track your reviews or mention of your work on any site. The best one is Google Alerts.  it's fast, free and easy to manage. You can set up for your author name, and every book you have.
