Our reviewers vary significantly - in age, style, reading preferences, and where we live. Six of our alumni reviewers are published authors. Our youngest reviewers are in their twenties and our oldest are, well, older. 

Our reviewers are varied in ethnicity and origin, from Asia to New Zeland to Europe to the Carribbean, to North America. We have or have had reviewers living in Germany, Finland, Sweden, Canada, and the United States. We are comprised of various races, religions, political persuasions, lifestyles, and yes - three of our reviewers are/have been men.

What do our reviewers have in common? A love for romance novels, an informative and entertaining method of sharing their opinions, and a diverse set of likes and dislikes in romance reading.
