Episode 028 - Accidental Romance

By Book Club for Masochists

While we planned on talking about all the non-bookclub stuff we read, this turned out to be an Accidental Romance episode! We talk about romances in video games, romance novels (both bad and good), romance manga, and movies we watch with our partners. Plus: Meaghan really loves bicycles. (That counts as a romance, right?)
