Episode 52: Author Spotlight- Meika Usher

Stephanie and Liz are back with another episode of Dick of the Week. This week we decided to do something a little different. We picked an author we love and have read all of her books and decided to do a deep dive into them. We picked Meika Usher, a very funny contemporary romance author. If you love humor, snark, and sexiness, you will love her. We discuss her four books (The Breakaway series and the How You Get The Girl series) and how the familial relationships in her books are nearly as important as the romantic ones. We look at tropes like best friend’s sibling/sibling’s best friend and how that trope can be done in really fun and interesting ways.

Check out Meika Usher’s website for more information on her books and how to find her on social media.

Books Talked About:

  • Meika Usher’s Breakaway series (Something So Sweet, Goodnight & Go, Ready to Run) and How To Get The Girl series (Make A Move)
  • Strictly Professional by Kathryn Nolan
  • Her Halloween Candy (Men At Work series) by Tiffany Reisz
  • Daring and the Duke by Sarah Maclean
  • Too Far To Care by Jen Luerssen

Dick of the Week is hosted by Stephanie Kazowz and Liz Zerkel and is a proud member of the CalamityCast Network.

Dick of the Week episode 40

Helllooo! Guess what? February 14 was our TWO YEAR anniversary! (Insert all thr cheers here!!)

Anyway, thank you for being on this wild ride whether you’ve been here since day 1 or are brand new.

This week, we discussed romance novels where the same couple spans the entire series and why we think this does or doesn’t work. Specifically, we focus on the To All The Boys books since PS I Still Love You recently came out on Netflix.

Books/Authors talked about:

Meghan Quinn (several of her books but mostly Getting Lucky series)

To All the Boys I Loved Before series by Jenny Han

DotW: Funny Thing Called Love
