Shelf Love Podcast
Shelf Love: Teach Me (by Olivia Dade) About Cinnamon Roll Heroes with Denise Williams

Is power a pie that once eaten, disappears? What’s the opposite of toxic masculinity? And, most importantly, what is a cinnamon roll hero and why are they all the rage right now in romantic fiction?

It’s a super hot romance between an emotionally-distant ice queen heroine and a cinnamon roll hero.
