Unless, you’re new here, most of you know that modern romance novels typically aren’t my cup of tea, so when I find a series or author whose style I appreciate, I hold on for dear life.

We’re back to meaningless hot takes from men (and a writer at that) claiming that “shippers” don’t deserve respect. What? In a world where we have terrible racist, misogynistic,
