Closed Door Romance makes us Sad | Unmasked Heart by Vanessa Riley | Fall into Historicals

Romance at a Glance

Happy 1 year anniversary from launch for us!!  Now on to the book!  Vanessa Riley came recommended to us by a lot of our friends (maybe even you!) on the old Instagram. But a different book, so maybe, that book would have had a little more open doors, and a little less plot lines, but this book was not that for us.  This book was very heavy on the praying to God and trusting in God. Each character was doing this at least once per chapter, so if that isn't your thing, this book isn't for you.  As Shani says, "I wanna do things that are ungodly hahahaha." Things we talked about in this episode:  Gaia finding out about her mixed heritage - coming to terms with it and pride in itWilliam and her meet-cute (cursing at the cliff)Book picked up for me when he proposed to herPlot was a lot! Dark secrets on both sides, attempted murders, kidnapping, multiple suitors, sister betrayal, cinderella storyLots of god talkLots of her crying. Pull your shit together gaia (except when she tells the black servant to watch the baby)Where was the sex? --- the kissing scenes were good thoughThe love triangle aspect *** Leave us a rating and review on Itunes *** A lot of additional listening on Patreon! Free 30 day Audible Trial to read like Shani A diverse, inclusive podcast that explores romance novels and helps our listeners pique their naughty curiosity with 100% honest reviews, spontaneous singing, life lessons, indecent anecdotes, and bawdy humor.
