022. Thirsty by Mia Hopkins with Tif Marcelo
Tif Marcelo (romance & women’s fiction author writing joyful stories of Filipino relationships without the oppression) and I read Thirsty by Mia Hopkins. This sexy contemporary explores outcasts, anti heroes, and forgiveness. We also discuss communities, how communities aren’t always what they seem to outsiders, and the personal calculus one makes about wanting to continue belonging to a community - when do you stay, and when is it time to go?
This Episode is sponsored by Owner of a Broken Heart by Cheris Hodges (Kensington Books).
