Meet the team!


Hi, I'm Steph and I live in a small village in Cheshire. I'm 26 years old, I have two dogs, Buster and Maizy. I work full-time but spend my spare time either reading, obsessing over all things Sons of Anarchy and True Blood or talking absolute crap with my lovely but slightly strange friends!


I'm Claire and I live in Glasgow, Scotland. I am 38 years old and I have been with my hubby for 21 years. I am a devoted mother to our 2 boys aged 12 and 14, both have special needs but I wouldn't change them for the world. I love reading and prefer my kindle to paperback. My favourite genre would be something in between Erotic and New Adult Romance although I keep an open mind! I love Filthy, hard and fast but it must also have a story (that's my inner slut speaking). My number 1 motto in life is live each day as your last, treasure your family and be adventurous as you only live once ! xx


I'm Louise, I'm a 40 year old Mum of one who tries to justify the amount I read as being something that will make me more intelligent. Still waiting for that to happen.
Anyway I love books with a sexy gripping storyline, especially ones that involve jealousy and betrayal. I'm not averse to the dark reads either.


I'm Vivienne, I was born in Southern Africa and emigrated to the UK in the late 90s. I am an avid reader and enjoy many different genres but especially those that I am fortunate enough to review on behalf of the Romance Readers Retreat review team.


 Hi I'm Gemma, 33 years old from Wigan UK, I'm a mum to 3 children and a crazy Jack Russell. I'm a self confessed book ho, I love nothing better than curling up with a brew and my kindle. I love reading and will give anything a go but my favourite genre is dark erotic, darker the better, I'm still waiting to find out what terrifies me.



 Hi, I'm Vikki, I am 46 years old and live in Salford, England. I'm a Mother and Grandmother and a bona fide book addict. Reading has always been my number one hobby since childhood and since receiving my first ereader as a gift my hobby has taken on a life of its own.That hobby brought me to the Fictional group where I am admin and reviewer and strangely along with reading it keeps me sane.


  1. So.....what path do you take to become a reviewer like you guys?

  2. Hi
    Would you be interested reviewing either of my two books, for your convenience I’ve put all the details in this google form.
