Hi friends! On this episode, we discuss “Begin Again, Again” by Eve Dangerfield. This is the first book we’ve recapped that explicitly exists in a post (or let’s be honest, during) COVID world. The pandemic looms pretty large over this story of a recently sober former podcaster who falls for a onetime professional athlete. And yet, this is one of the sexiest books we’ve read this year, while being relatable and beautifully optimistic. Spoilers ahead.
