Kicking off this season with a strong one - A Wicked Kind of Husband is a romance for married strangers. It absolutely delivered, and we certainly have a lot to discuss. Crazy sisters, puberty, scheming, coming out balls, and nice to naughty heroines - this book has it all and we're just getting started. (Maybe we can all learn together how to set …
 
In the finale for our Fantasy season, we finally get to the Gathering of Dragons series - Book 2, A Touch of Stone and Snow.

A CRAZY hot male lead...and we mean that literally. We talk hilariously bad covers, rational heroines (thank god), unsexy dog tags, cute family detective agencies, and a painful slowburn. The iconic Ilona Andrews flexes her chops in writing a meet cute that somehow involves kidnapping and torture (lowkey though, lowkey), while still giving us a gre…
 
Getting into a romance by the legendary Grace Draven. Finally, something a little different from the leading men...though whether it works is up for debate.

Kicking off our Fantasy season with one that came well recommended - The Winter King by CL Wilson! Today’s episode edges on the short side, but this book certainly didn’t! So much to discuss: evil maids, beautiful high priestesses, stubborn heroines, and hot summer palace princes who honestly might have been a better bet for this main character. Jo…

The incredible Grace Goodwin hit this one out of the park for our Alien finale. Join us for crazy sex dreams, three love interests, excellent dirty talk, and starting off with a bang. Literally.

It’s time for some action in our Aliens season! Gladiator gave us a badass heroine, sexy wrestling, scrappy characters, and a perfect potato chip read.

The title, cover, and description of this book got us! We were super excited to dip into this book and were so shocked when the second male MC showed up halfway through the book!

What do you make of a book where a character falls in love with her abuser? In this episode, Shani and Bridget dive deep into the novel while uncovering this different and rather controversial dark romance genre—bully romance. As the title suggests, B.B. Reid’s book depicts the story of an angsty teenage boy inflicting fear on the main character wh…
 
We tots thought that this book was going to have a darker romance, however, the darkness in this book was the situation and backstory of the characters, especially the Mae and the other women from the cult. One of the books that we disagreed with the most in our final ratings… probably because Shani doesn’t like the intrigue! PS _ Bridget reviews b…

A city boy falls for a farmer in this angsty romance. The beginning was definitely a slow start for us, and hard to get in touch with Olu, but Griff stole our hearts in a big way.

In Bridget's defense, she read the series a long time ago and probably should have just picked one of her favorites, but she thought it was important to start from the beginning of the troubleshooter... but probably should have picked book 2 or 3 to start! Ann (Bridget's sister) reprises her role as guest host and to be honest, this was recorded th…
