In this episode, Lauren and Diem review No Limits, which is one of their favourite reads of 2017. The review focuses Ellie Marney’s examination of drug use and domestic violence in small towns. Lauren and Diem both stumble over their words, more than once. Please forgive them! Ellie Marney tackled such important issues that prompted some serious discussion.
If you were looking for some cheery and fun chat about Harris and his goldenness, his beard, and his snake tattoo… listen to our discussion episode. That one will be chock full of spoilers, and squeeing.
Content warning: Drug addition and domestic violence.
Thank you Ellie Marney for sending us an e-ARC of No Limits to review.
