Seeking Beta Reader for New Adult Romance Chapter
« on: September 17, 2021, 03:20:56 PM »
Hello there,

I am seeking a Beta reader to review the first chapter of my New Adult Romance novel. (Blurb is posted below)
The full draft of the story is quite long, and I am looking to garner feedback on a few specific areas.

Primarily, initial thoughts on the book’s opening, pace and overall details of the chapter, as well as any other feedback you would be willing to provide.

The first chapter is just under 5,000 words.


Hudson Scott is 1/5 of the world’s biggest pop band.
Becca Johnson is a college student just trying to find her place in the world.
When their paths collide, something instant sparks between, taking them both on a three-year ride, neither one could anticipate.

But that was years ago, and now they just want to forget about each other.

Today Hudson is engaged and at the top of his career, while Becca has settled into her own serious relationship.
Haunted by the past, they both need closure and decide to meet one final time.
But what happens when the spark re-ignites, and this time, it’s even harder to walk away.

Please let me know if you are interested, by replying below or emailing me at

Here is the specific questions I’ll be asking:

What is your initial impression of what you read?
Does any part of the chapter drag?
Do I over-inform in any areas?
Do their actions and reactions seem logical and realistic?
Could you feel the emotions between the characters?
Were any of the characters unlikable, and why?

Thank you for taking the time!
