DotW: Bare Chested Men; Hair Optional

Episode 5: Bare Chested Men; Hair Optional

In the 5th installment of Dick of the Week, the ladies discuss who their ideal hunky heroes are (spoilers: they all have beautiful hair and strong arms) before discussing the one aspect of a book everyone is quick to judge: the cover. Stephanie, Duchess, and Liz dive into what they find attractive in a book cover and what makes them say “no thanks” to a book among a genre that tends to rely on hard abs and seductive looks.
