Customer Reviews

Awesomeness abounds!!

I love this Podcast! It's like Christmas morning for me when I see I have a new one for my listening pleasure. It's my Hotel California (nod your head if your mother played the record/cassette) while she cleaned the house) for house cleaning days. Keep up the amazing work, Ladies, I'll keep listening -- I promise.

Wonderful podcast about Romance Novels!

This is a funny and intelligent discussion of romance novels by two experienced romance reviewers/bloggers. There are book recommendations, but my favorite pars are when they discuss themes and issues with the genre as a whole.

Interviews are okay

But when it's just the two women talking it's a little hard to get through. The tone/pace reminds me of old PBS shows (slow, older, all-knowing, with public radio style music), which is odd since it's supposed to be covering all sorts of romance books. You would think the topic alone would lighten things up. They also desperately need a cough button and need to edit out long pauses. Once I got to the end and realized it was sponsored by Harlequin I got it. There is one (Jane?) that sounds much more open-minded than the other so it's a little like listening to someone do a podcast with her spinster aunt. Seems like it would be hard to weigh in on a podcast about romance books/authors with any authority if you skim sex scenes and get tripped up by words that you don't like to the point where you won't even try a series.
