Magda Przybylska ,

Exactly what I was looking for!

I love books in general, but romances have a special place in my heart. I have been looking for romance book content that analyses books in details, not in two sentence. I love this podcast because Erin and Clayton take their time and notice things I might have missed. And they are so funny and approachable! I'd recommend this podcast to any romance Lover! Xx

Wonderful podcast

This podcast is an absolute joy. It’s kept me company through many of my long lockdown walks. I really feel like I’m sitting in a cafe somewhere with two friends discussing my favourite genre and some of my favourite books. Being a romance reader can be lonely sometimes as it’s a much maligned genre. So finding my community online in podcast form has been wonderful. Thank you for making my 2021 a bit brighter.

Love it

I have so greatly enjoyed listening to you Bridgerton series in light of the new Netflix show. Thanks so much for rating the books in a genuine way - I appreciate the non-mocking tone while also laughing together.
