This week we are welcoming Aarya Marsden to our collective mayhem for her first book club episode, and her first podcast - welcome, Aarya! Then we deep dive into everything we loved about Rebel Hard by Nalini Singh. And there was a LOT that we loved. We also talked about how our tolerance for alpha heroes varies by the genre in which they are written, what lines pulled us out of the story, and what characters we absolutely adored. Be warned: we talk about the ending, the middle, and everything in between, so if you haven’t read it, don’t listen unless you want all the spoilers, k? CW/TW at the end, when Carrie discusses her grade, she talks about the realities of alcoholic family members, so if that’s something that would be upsetting, skip ahead about 2 minutes when she mentions Caroline Bingley.
