Neil and Claire read straight and LGBTQ+ Romance and Erotic Novels and then we play F**K, Marry, Kill with the characters. It is sexy and silly fun! Follow us on Twitter and Facebook @FMKLitPod
Some things are just better in groups: board games, splitting a check, love. And knitting! So put some love into every stitch because today we're doing knitting! For this cozy episode, we read "Neanderthal Seeks Human: A Smart Romance (Knitting in the City Book 1)" by Penny Reid and "Knit, Purl, a Baby and a Girl: An LGBTQ Romance" by Hettie Bell. Today our hosts discuss the subtle differences between Wendells and slamps; why you need to accept someone's boundaries when you agree to them; and have FMK-style story hour where Claire reacts to the end of a book in real time because she didn't finish the book.
I don't know about you, dear Listener, but nothing gets my gears going quite like a hot burst of steam. So it's a good thing that we're doing Steampunk! For today's episode we read "The Stowaway Debutante (Tales of the Captain Duke Book 1)" by Rebecca Diem and "Prosperity" by Alexis Hall. For this steamin' hot episode, our begoggled hosts discuss the importance of bawdy houses, the scourge that is the "Mary Sue", and why sky pirate seems to love grain so goddamn much.
We've been running drills all day, but there's no camouflaging our love, Listeners. We're here to serve and protect....your hearts. Because today we're doing the Military! For this very strict episode, we read "The Lieutenants' Online Love (American Heroes Book 2621)" by Caro Carson, and "Zenko: MM Military Suspense (Tags of Honor Book 1)" by Annabella Stone. Today, our commanding hosts discuss the tactical worth of helicopters, naked hotdogs, and how a night at the ballet can go very south very quickly.
QUICKIE #12: The Worst Romance Novel in the World!
Claire is a glutton for punishment and decided that she wanted to inflict Neil and you, the gentle listeners, with the worst romance novel in the world. What she found was "The Worst Romance Novel in the World: A Mercifully Abridged Version of: Eternal Passion at Sunset by Tanya St. Clair" adapted by Cassandra Gannon. Is this, indeed, the worst romance novel in the world? Has Claire doomed us all? Only one way to find out!
52. Claire and Neil!
A wise drag queen once said: "If you can't love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?" And we here at FMKlit think it's always a good idea to just pour a glass of wine, light some candles, and love yourself all night long. To celebrate that, we're loving our hosts because our theme is Neil and Claire! Today we read "Lady Claire is All That (Keeping Up with the Cavandishes Book 3)" by Maya Rodale, and "The Foxhole Court (All For the Game Book 1)" by Nora Sakavic. On this autosexual episode, our hosts discuss himbos, the dangers of cracker dust, and spend a shocking amount of time talking about balls.
51. Silver Foxes!
Whenever I get asked, I tell everyone that I like my men like I like my whiskey: mature. And today won't disappoint because we're doing silver foxes! For this well-aged episode we read "Choose Me (Silver Fox Romance Book 1)" by Natasha Moore, and "Second Chance" by Jay Northcote. Today our seasoned hosts discuss: the joys of a one-bedroom walkup; some more moving the bathtub moments (forevermore known as ‘bathtubbing’); as well as do a dramatic reading of a passage from one of our books.
This show is witty, raunchy, and wonderful! Do you want to listen to two experienced writers talk about romance novels from a loving, critical, and honest perspective? I do! These two have a clear love of the romance genre and as they review books with total honesty, they make you want to love romance novels just as much. I've even been tempted to pick up a few of the books that they hate!
Reviewers with humor & honesty & sensitivity to the varied community
“Does the description _on_ the book match the actual content?” They do a quick check about this on every book, and it is so interesting to hear how the pitch and the book don’t always match up!
With humor and affection, the hosts do an excellent job of honestly recounting what does and doesn’t work for them in the various novels. I always have a great time listening to these folks talk about plot choices, character development, and what’s making them “hot and bothered” this time. (Hope they come back from vacation soon and feel ready to go again!)
