Something to Talk About

By Meryl Wilsner
Narrated by: Jorjeana Marie & Xe Sands
Length: 9 hours 6 minutes

Something to Talk About

Something to Talk About is an incredible debut about a Hollywood showrunner, Jo, and her assistant, Emma, who realize the tabloids may be correct in thinking there is something romantic between the two of them. The slowest of slow-burn romances in the best possible way, Something to Talk About touches on the #MeToo movement, the meaning of consent, and what it means to be a powerful woman in Hollywood.”

Bonds of Brass

Book One of The Bloodright Trilogy
The Bloodright Trilogy: Book #1

By Emily Skrutskie
Narrated by: James Fouhey
Length: 10 hours 20 minutes

Bonds of Brass

Bonds of Brass is a fast-paced, page turning space opera with a slow burn queer romance at its core. It was the prefect escape for me during a tough time. If you're looking for an adventure to get away, I highly recommend! I adore these characters and can't wait to know what happens next! A great series starter for both teens and adults.”

Date Me, Bryson Keller

Date Me, Bryson Keller is a fun, heartwarming teen romance (featuring a fake relationship) that will make you smile while you listen, but it's not without it's darker moments as the characters deal with homophobia, violence, and forced outings.

One Last Stop

By Casey McQuiston
Narrated by: Natalie Naudus
Length: 12 hours 10 minutes

If you enjoyed Honey Girl, then you’ll love One Last Stop.

“McQuiston delivers a delightful sophomore novel that surprised me. Though similar to Red, White, and Royal Blue, One Last Stop adds a science fiction time loop element that makes it fun and different. I had major missing-Brooklyn-feels while listening to this! McQuiston perfectly captures the magic of Brooklyn and the MTA (both good and bad). They have a super strong cast of characters that celebrates found family and kindness. McQuiston redefines what a modern romance can be by combining genres and featuring a strong queer relationship.”

Red, White & Royal Blue

A Novel

By Casey McQuiston
Narrated by: Ramon de Ocampo
Length: 12 hours 15 minutes

Red, White & Royal Blue

“Fresh, irreverent, and funny, Red, White & Royal Blue is a delight and a treasure. With subtle jabs, Casey McQuiston pokes fun at both the public face of the British monarchy as well as the back-door politicking that dominates the U.S. political scene. The story follows the self-centered Alex Claremont-Diaz (America’s First Son) and his interactions with British Prince Henry of Wales. As hostility increases between two political scions forced into a sham friendship, we see the framework of political destiny and duty begin to fray. Little by little, hostility turns to something else entirely. This is a story about happiness — and, more importantly, honesty — for those who live their lives in the public eye.”
