Final Thought: A special Thanks to the Ladies who joined us to make this episode awesome! Also a Thank you to you the listeners for helping us share our love of romance. For just being awesome and supporting us. I also want to take a moment and thank the authors that have given us their time and shared their stories.
Also a special shout out to Mike and Kyle. Without the support of our spouses Brittni and I would not be able to have done any of this. These guys live in our crazy 24/7. But for this they have taken over bartending duties, bedtime duties and production.
Katie, has joined Brittni and I to not only bring you Another Round but she is always willing to jump in and have our backs, love you girl and thanks for being awesome!
I can’t wait for the chaos and awesome that awaits us in 2021.
