“Rock the Curves” by Twyla Turner hits the right notes

Nerdy Romantics Podcast gets a group discussion going on Episode 5, which looks at the novel Rock the Curves by Twyla Turner. In this book review and discussion, Y. M. Nelson is joined by fellow Nerdy Romantics readers Dana and Staci from YouTube’s L-5 Podcast to review what they liked…and didn’t like about the interracial romance novel with a plus-sized heroine.

We discuss:

  • The cover (which is what led me to the book. )

  • Gage as a good guy and formerly plus-sized hero
  • Lyris’ insecurities with fame, social media, and dating “out of your league”
  • Interracial romance novels in general
