Unfortunately Google is clamping down hard on sites which have paid reviews in their content. I have had several of my blogs lowered to a page rank of zero because I have Pay Per Post reviews on the site. I have been advised to remove as much eveidenc as I can that the sites have paid reviews on them and since doing that, Google has updated page ranks and it hasn't seemed to have made a difference. I have also been advised to write more articles with no links in. I have one blog where I write about 50% of articles with no links and its page rank went down from 2 to 0 very recently. I would assume that the best way to get your ranking back is to have no sponsored posts and keep all posts relevant.
