Love this show

I found this podcast through Fated Mates and love it. Erin and Clayton are fun to listen to and offer great perspectives on romances.

Love love love love love!

I found this podcast through Fated Mates and am nearing the end of my binge-listen of past episodes. Not only do Erin and Clayton make talking about romance enjoyable and insightful, their amazing rapport as friends makes the whole experience like an inside joke that they are bringing you in on because they don’t want you to feel excluded. Here’s to many more seasons!

Not every book means something

Bridgestone isn’t a commentary on anything. It’s cosplay porn for readers.
