Fav author, fav podcast

Love listening to SJ and Cat talk about the book world and inside author info. As a bookstagramer, this is so fun to listen to!

My favorite bookish podcast!

Cat and SJ are the kinds of writers / romance readers / hosts you want to be friends with after listening.

Kiss My Smut 💋🖤 ,

Two spicy authors talk smutty books and writing

I am an avid romance reader that beta and arc reads, blogs, booktok… you get the point. Listening to these girls make me want to join in and hang with them. They are always having fun talking about their topics and what they are passionate about - writing and reading spicy romance. 😉
