Here at FMKlit, we have a philosophy that we hold very near and dear to our hearts: Sun's out, buns out! Summer's around the corner and we're ready to heat things up! Today, we read "A Small Slice of Summer (The Best of Betty Neels)" by Betty Neels and "The Summer of Jordi Perez (And the Best Burger in Los Angeles)" by Amy Spalding. For this sun-soaked episode, our hosts discuss the mood killer that is talking driving directions, dude bros with hearts of gold, and the dangerous allure of Dutchmen.

How do you like your love? Dirty? With a twist? On the rocks? However you like your love, make it a double! You deserve it. And while you do, we're going to do bartenders! Today we read "Breaking the Bachelor (Smart Cupid Book 1)" by Maggie Kelley, and "Pretty Perfect (Boys in Makeup Book 1)" by Christina Lee and Riley Hart. For this happy hour (and change), our hosts discuss bars that have too many themes, backstories that leave more questions than answers, and we have the longest Hot and Bothered ever. Ever.

QUICKIE #12: The Worst Romance Novel in the World!
Claire is a glutton for punishment and decided that she wanted to inflict Neil and you, the gentle listeners, with the worst romance novel in the world. What she found was "The Worst Romance Novel in the World: A Mercifully Abridged Version of: Eternal Passion at Sunset by Tanya St. Clair" adapted by Cassandra Gannon. Is this, indeed, the worst romance novel in the world? Has Claire doomed us all? Only one way to find out!

52. Claire and Neil!
A wise drag queen once said: "If you can't love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?" And we here at FMKlit think it's always a good idea to just pour a glass of wine, light some candles, and love yourself all night long. To celebrate that, we're loving our hosts because our theme is Neil and Claire! Today we read "Lady Claire is All That (Keeping Up with the Cavandishes Book 3)" by Maya Rodale, and "The Foxhole Court (All For the Game Book 1)" by Nora Sakavic. On this autosexual episode, our hosts discuss himbos, the dangers of cracker dust, and spend a shocking amount of time talking about balls.

51. Silver Foxes!
Whenever I get asked, I tell everyone that I like my men like I like my whiskey: mature. And today won't disappoint because we're doing silver foxes! For this well-aged episode we read "Choose Me (Silver Fox Romance Book 1)" by Natasha Moore, and "Second Chance" by Jay Northcote. Today our seasoned hosts discuss: the joys of a one-bedroom walkup; some more moving the bathtub moments (forevermore known as ‘bathtubbing’); as well as do a dramatic reading of a passage from one of our books.

I hope you're not a screamer, because the love we're talking about today is quiet and literary. That's right, we're doing librarians! And it's our 3-year anniversary! To celebrate the leather anniversary, we read "Good Girls Do" by Cathie Linz and "By the Book" by Scarlett Parrish. For this romantic traipse through the Dewey Decimal System, our hosts discuss wiener races, having a dick in your butt, and look back on the year the best way they know how: by fucking, marrying, and killing some folk.

49. Hate to Love!
The burning passion in his eyes. The snide comments. The smouldering looks. It can only mean one thing: he hates you. Or it could mean that he loves you. So, two things, I guess. It could mean two things. We're figuring out adult, human emotions because today we're doing Hate to Love! On this passion-fulled episode, we read "The Hating Game: A Novel" by Sally Thorne and "Conventionally Yours (True Colors Book 1)" by Annabeth Albert. Today our hatefully loving hosts discuss: how romantic conventions can be, the unsung heroes of the HR department, and how this trope can go so very wrong so very quickly.

Quickie#12: Tingle Your Own Adventure
Some choices have been made lately that really should be relegated to a different timeline. Good thing we have Chuck Tingle to help remind us that love conquers all (and maybe to teach us how to fix our timeline). For this quickie, we read "Escape From The Billings Mall: A Select Your Own Timeline Adventure" by Chuck Tingle. Can our hosts make the right choices to escape from the Billings Mall? And can we maybe get that beefy unicorn's number? Listen and find out!

NaNoWriMo 2020 - Part 4
Well, November has ended, which means that so has NaNoWriMo 2020. Did our hosts reach their 50K word goal? Did they finish their novels? Have they been published already?

47. Haunted Houses!
Is that a bump in the night, or are you just happy to see me? Whether it's the blood oozing out of the walls or the screams of tortured souls trapped between this realm and the next, there's nothing quite so sexy as a haunted house! Which is why we're bringing you this extra special, extra spoopy BONUS episode! This time around we read "Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror #1)" by Karina Halle and "Restless Spirits" by Jordan L. Hawk. On today's ectoplasmic episode, our haunted hosts discuss sexy seances, spoopy self-esteem issues, and the pros and cons of when the butler did it.

Here at FMK were all about opening up our...book covers, and gushing some....feelings. So today we're doing Romance Book Clubs! To get our blood (and brains) going, we read "The Bromance Book Club" by Lyssa Kay Adams and "Meet Cute Club (Sweet Rose Book 1)" by Jack Harmon. In this stimulating episode, our well-read hosts discuss: tearing down the (literal) walls of your relationship; why it's important to actually tell people that you have a book club; and the sexiest literature of all - feminist manifestos.

Quickie #11: Election Special!
We try not to get political here at FMKlit, but we just couldn't help ourselves! But, of course, we're approaching politics through the most level-headed and straightforward medium: romance! For today's special Quickie, we read "My Antifa Lover: A Riot of the Heart: Steamy Romance Against Fascism" by Jessica Stranger. Strap in, kids, because this book is as nuts as the current election cycle.
