#83 – A Merry Little Meet Cute by Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone (with Torry of Ready to be Petty)

Tune in as returning guest Torry (Ready to be Petty) drops by 2CC for the first episode of Christmas Month 2022, where we’re kicking things off by reviewing and recapping A Merry Little Meet Cute, the 2022 Christmas rom-com novel by Julie Murphy (Dumplin’) and Sierra Simone (Priest). Equal amounts of sugar and spice can be found in the romance that plus-size porn star Bee Hobbes and former boy band member Nolan Shaw try to keep secret while shooting the Hallmark-esque Christmas movie Duke the Halls. On top of unpacking all that, Arthur and Torry chat about subjects like Edward and Bella’s kiss at the end of Twilight, the book’s handling of the surprisingly numerous societal issues that it brings into the narrative, screenwriting troubles, and the misogyny and other forms of bigotry that tabloid culture promote.
