Melissa Brayden Has Not Been Frugal With Her Jewels (QR Bonus 006)

February 8, 2022

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and we have chosen you (yes, you!) to be our valentine. And the gift we’ve chosen? A very special hangout with f/f romance author extraordinaire Melissa Brayden, who’s recently had her story Kiss the Girl turned into a game through the Chapters: Interactive Stories app.

We’re talking love this episode, people! In addition to reading your valentines, Kris, Tara and Melissa compare their fave fictional couples, kisses, and romances that they love to reread. We also find out if Kris has a low bar for kissing in media (Melissa thinks so), Kris thinks out loud about Charlize Theron’s mouth, and Tara recounts her Summer of Steel at the tender age of twelve.

If you enjoy this episode, please consider buying Kris & Tara a Ko-fi!
