A fan of the pod rants included

Just caught up again and can’t believe I haven’t reviewed yet. Love this podcast. It’s definitely helped me own my love of romance and treat it less like a guilty pleasure.

Also I love the rants and would listen to y’all talk for twice the time.

You’ve introduced me to Alyssa Cole, Talia Hibbert, and so many more. Pretty much every romance I’ve read lately was recommended by this podcast so many thanks.

I love the podcast but you should write out recommendations

I love the podcast so far; it is so refreshing to hear about trends and changes in the romance genre as well as its potential to introduce people to healthier relationships. However, you mentioned a lot of books, apps and authors and for some newbies, it would be nice if you wrote out the books, apps, authors mentioned in your episode description
