204 episodes

Niece and aunt duo, Jessen Judice and (author) Juliette Cross, bond over their shared love of romance novels, and want to include fellow romance enthusiasts in on the conversation. We started this podcast as a big middle finger to the stigma associated with reading and loving romance novels. We love to fangirl about our favorite books, authors, and characters and are challenging people to think of romance novels as more than just "mommy porn" - though there's nothing wrong with a copious amount of sexy times. Bring that *ish on!This one goes out to all the fangirls! Life's better with a little HEA.

Favorite podcast ever

As an avid romance reader I truly appreciate Jessen and Juliet’s reviews and recommendations. Y’all have led me to so many authors and stories and I’m so grateful. I truly enjoy listening after I read a book you review. It’s like reading with friends.
