Always a good listen! 🙌🏼

Always a good listen! 🙌🏼 even when I had to DNF the book 📖 (I have a chronic illness too). Was reluctant to DNF but listening to the episode was a nice work around (love hearing their thoughts 💭)

Have I found my people?

I haven’t listened to a podcast in ages but this year I’ve become addicted to Ellen - and Ellen’s mom Julie. First of all I love love love reading romance but finding people to chat with me about it, not so easy. It’s almost more fun than reading a and I find myself sitting in my car to finish listening and laughing along. I adore their realistic and sometimes chuckle at all of our mutually cringe-worthy romance moments. Their banter makes me think about what my mom and I might talk about if we read romance books together...could we do it? Honestly maybe they’ve given me hope. They sound like they love each other, they know their stuff, and they have a lot of fun. I’m addicted and I’ve been listening to their whole backlog and adding to my TBR list so I can listen to it even more!

The Best Duo!

I really enjoy Ellen and Mom’s banter and dynamic.
They usually have a great selection of authors a and sub genres.
