Review Team – Book Reviews

If you’re a fan of Evie’s books or just love reading romcom, you’ve come to the right place!

Background

Once upon a time, Evie Alexander used to write her novels and then hand everything over to Amazon. However, Evie quickly realised that many readers don’t necessarily like Amazon that much and have their own special places for reading books elsewhere.

In 2023, Evie decided it was time to venture out into the big WIDE world to visit these wonderful places and share her unique steamy humour with many more people.

And so she did.

After climbing many mountains (read ‘obstacles’) and traversing numerous deep ravines (read ‘low points’), her books are now across all platforms for people to enjoy. However, Evie, needs a band of very happy readers to help spread the word as she is so new in many of these places.

So, if you’ve arrived on this page, you’re clearly a fabulous person to help Evie on her mission to bring laughter, steam and happy-ever-afters to everyone!

Review Team

Evie’s Review Team is completely separate to Evie’s ARC team.

Evie’s ARC Team (EAT) deal only with Evie’s very latest upcoming releases, whereas Evie’s Review Team (ERT) deal with her entire back catalogue of books.

Information For New Reviewers:

It is entirely possible to be on both review teams, however, most new reviewers prefer to start from the beginning of a series, meaning they start on her review team, reviewing a series until they catch up with the current upcoming release and become an ARC reader too.

You have two choices:

1. You continue with The Upper Crush (Foxbrooke Series) and ARC read that novel first, and then go through Evie’s back catalogue.

Or,

2. You start at the very beginning, with Love ad Lib (first novel in the Foxbrook series), followed by An Unholy Affair and then read the Upper Crush. Or, you start with Highland Games (first novel in the Kinloch Series), followed by Hollywood Games, Kissing Games, Musical Games and Wedding Games.

These books are all standalone reads, but as they are part of a series, are much better enjoyed in order.

This page focuses solely on back catalogue reviews

1. The first step in becoming part of Evie’s Review team is to download your FREE starter download bundle.
This contains her short story One Night in Foxbrooke. This story should take no more than 20 minutes to read and should give you a fair flavour of Evie’s rather unique humour and steam. This short story does have lots of Star Wars references, but they are unique to this particular story and are not a ‘theme’ that runs through all of Evie’s work. You DO NOT need to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy this story.

You will also be provided with extended excerpts of the first book from each of Evie’s book series (Highland Games – Book one in the Kinloch Series and Love ad Lib – Book one in the Foxbrooke Series) so that you can choose which series you wish to continue with. We highly recommend reading both excerpts as soon as possible as these let you see how diverse (and in our opinion, funny) Evie’s full length novels are.

2. Once you have read One Night In Foxbrooke, if you like it, we would love you to leave a review! You can find the instructions further down this page. This will help you to see what is required when leaving reviews for Evie.

If you do not review One Night In Foxbrooke within 14 days of download, we will assume you do not wish to leave a public review for that particular story. However, PLEASE still complete the review submission form if you wish to continue with Evie’s other novels, so that we know this and can still issue your first full FREE novel to read. You will just need to select One Night in Foxbrooke as your selected read and enter No Review in the review submission fields before selecting your chosen series.

3. Once you have submitted your reviews, you will be asked to complete a Google Form linking directly to your reviews on the various platforms. The link to this form can be found here, and also as the last step for each set of platform instructions.

Once this has been reviewed by Evie’s admin team, you will either be approved immediately or given further assistance.

4. Once approved, you will be offered your next FREE book in accordance with the preferred series you wish to continue with based on the extended excerpt you have read.

5. Once you complete your next novel, the process starts again (steps 2 – 5) and so on. Books will be issued in chronological order to ensure maximum enjoyment.
Information For Existing ARC Reviewers:

Existing ARC readers are invited to join Evie’s Review Team in order to add their previously shared reviews to wide platforms. We appreciate this involves additional work for you as you have already kindly reviewed these books on Amazon. By way of thanks, once you have completed your reviews you will be gifted an e-book or audio book for Highland Games AND Hollywood Games which you can gift or offer as a giveaway, to anyone you wish.

You will need to complete the google form mentioned in the below review requirements with your review links rather than Booksirens as we only use Booksirens for the collection of ARC reviews for current campaigns (Evie’s latest book that has not yet been published).

Review Requirements

For some of you the below requirements will mean you may need to create new accounts on some of these platforms. While this may take a little extra time for your first set of reviews, it will be faster next time. And, as your reviews can be copy and pasted across all platforms, we anticipate the process of actually posting your review will be very quick.

You must:

  • Leave a review on both Goodreads AND Bookbub. If you do not have accounts with either you will need to create accounts. With Bookbub, do not attempt to create an account via the pop-up as it is a broken link.
  • Leave a review on at least THREE store fronts (out of Amazon, Googleplay, Kobo, Barnes&Noble and Apple).
  • Your review must be a written review. Leaving just a star rating will not count. Check out Review Best Practise at the bottom of this page.
  • Your review must be a minimum of 3 stars. If you feel the book does not deserve 3 stars or more, we prefer that you please refrain from leaving any review and just let us know. This does not mean you will be declined any further books.
  • For new reviewers, please review the book within 14 days of completion in order to receive your next FREE BOOK.
  • Please complete this form confirming where we can find your review: https://forms.gle/Zn7dYiZuhSAroKsMA

Review Best Practice:

A quick message about writing your review:

Something we’ve learned is that reviews get more attention from the algorithms that put books in front of people if they are more than just one or two lines, and are unique content.

Examples of not so algorithm-friendly reviews.

“I loved this book! Can’t wait to read more from this author. It’s five stars from me!” 👎

“ [insert full blurb – this is not classed as original content] I loved it when [insert multiple spoilers]. Five stars!” 👎

Great reviews will have the following:

  • Five or more lines of text (the more lines the better)
  • Unique content (one or two quotes from the book are still good though)
  • Does not include the blurb for the book (we understand some people will obviously copy from their blogs. However, if you can remove the blurb when adding it to your review on the various platforms, this means people reading your review can get straight to your actual review and don’t need to read heaps of reviews for a book where everyone has added the blurb. The algorithms also identify reviews containing mostly the blurb as not original content and they risk getting moved further down or even hidden in some search results).
  • Explaining why you loved the book, rather than just telling the story
  • No spoilers
  • Images are an added bonus
  • Consistent ratings. If you rate it 5 stars on Amazon, please give it the same rating on Goodreads.
  • If the book simply wasn’t for you and you want to rate it 3 stars or less, we would prefer you decline to leave a review or (as per the terms and conditions,) leave it one month after publication day.

Remember, if you have any issues with completing your reviews or accessing your book, just let us know!
