In the season 1 finale I chat with Lala of Lala's Bedtime Tales, a podcast that offers all female-friendly, Inclusive, and sex-positive erotic and sex stories.

S1E30 Smut School for Prospective Partners with Salma
In this week's episode I got to chat with Salma (@salmaslibrary_) who I got to meet in person a few weeks ago and is TRULY just as sweet IRL as she is on your FYP. We chatted about our love for all things dark romance (and how on earth that could mix with SPORTS romance ::GASP::), using spice as a crash course education for a future spouse, and whether Sean Bell is a blond (SPOILER ALERT HE IS BLOND IT'S A THING). We also talk about why every book should be able to be described with a knife emoji, keeping our standards high AF, and how Disney movies unintentionally (or intentionally?) cultivated our love for the villain.  Crack My Spine: Twisted by Emily McIntire: https://amzn.to/3wxAuYU Unbroken Bonds by J Bree: https://amzn.to/3e34Zji Under the Covers: Hoops Series by Kennedy Ryan: https://amzn.to/3pKnQ5j Other Links: Salma's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/salmaslibrary_/ Salma's TikTok: https://tiktok.com/@salmaslibrary Follow Under the Covers' Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/underthecoverspod/

We chatted all about the Twisted Sisters, @carolinepeckham and @susanne_valenti, and tried (poorly) to stay on topic with the Harlequin Crew series, but clearly we are obsessed with all things written by this dynamic sister duo and a few of their others may have slipped in there MANY times. We also chatted about our love for a pregnancy trope, what IRL trope she is, the ideal harem number, and how our friendship almost ended before it started because SOMEONE might be on the wrong Twilight team (for shame).  Crack My Spine:  The Do-Over by TL Swan: https://amzn.to/3d4d46P Under the Covers: Harlequin Crew by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti: https://amzn.to/3BFDWnQ Other Links: Ruthless Boys of the Zodiac by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti: https://amzn.to/3oTRjt8 Lindsey's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bookbestielindsey/ Lindsey's TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@lindsromero_04 Your Fav Author PA: https://www.instagram.com/yourfavauthorpa/ Follow Under the Covers' Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/underthecoverspod/
