Gentleman Sinner by Jodi Ellen Malpas
We cannot even with this book! Gentleman Sinner is the first book we have reviewed that we detested! AND OUR CRITIQUE IS SO FUNNY.

The Earl I Ruined by Scarlett Peckham
If you already listened to our review of The Duke I Tempted, the first book in this series, you may already be guessing that we are loving this author and series. Shani loves nothing more than some historical romance and some excellently written nitty gritty, and Bridget was here for the quippy dialogue, strong heroine, unrequited love on both sides and of course, the nookie. Listen as we laugh over some of the best moments in the book and talk about some of our own ideas around BDSM and...
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
HOT DAMN!!!! We thought the Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang was going to be a fun, romantic jaunt, but in reality, it is a sexy, sexy thrill ride. Hear us as we wax poetic about our this pairing and the mixture of absolute dynamite sex scenes, with sweet sweet romance. Stella has Asperger's and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice — with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The...

Like The Wind by J. Bengtsson
We discuss sex and romance starting from traumatic or high-adrenaline situations after reading Like the Wind by J. Bengtsson. While escaping the flames, Bodhi rescues Breeze, a quirky, pet-loving woman, and together the two fight their way to safety. In the aftermath of the fire, Bodhi and Breeze hit the road to uncover the truth about his family. This highly improbably romance novel worked for one of us, but not so much for the other. Enjoy our tangents as we discuss the quirks of each...
