About Us

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.

Ep. 26 - When August Ends by Penelope Ward

Another age-gap romance! Is Jessen trying to convert anti-age-gappers? Nah, everybody has their likes and dislikes. BUT, we do like to highlight when the trope is done well and not in a creepy way. Penelope Ward delivers a relaxing slowburn romance perfect for summertime. Before we deep dive into the story, listen to a brief chit-chat/check-in with Jessen and Juliette talk about lake vacations and Jessen's run-in with a raccoon (00:58). Get to know the characters, setting, and tropes during their spoiler-free discussion of When August Ends (4:52). Spoiler Section: Juliette and Jessen compete in a Showdown where they each offer up their favorite scene to see which one reigns supreme (9:46). Then, take a deep dive into all the SPOILERY details of this slowburn romance (15:42).
