So we decided to record ourselves talking about anything and everything that has recently gone down in the skating world. Spotify | Apple Podcasts | Other Platforms Instagram | Twitter Books Mentioned Crazy Stupid Bromance Undercover Bromance The Bromance Book Club Author Bio Lyssa Kay Adams read her first romance novel in eighth grade after swiping one from her grandmother’s book shelf and was hooked forever. After a nearly 20-year career as a journalist, her dreams of writing and publishing her own HEAs came true in 2015 with the release of her first novel, Seventh Inning Heat, followed by the RITA-nominated novella, Wild in Rio. Today, she writes full-time from her home in Michigan with a pesky, fluffy K9 assistant named Domino who spends most of his day snoring on her desk (that is, when he’s not burying things around the house).
