Romance Audiobooks?! Yes, please!

Hey guys!

I'm not sure if I told you guys yet, but I'm a huge fan of audiobooks, and I love love love a good romance audiobook. This past week I listened to and reviewed my first audio review copy. I've listened to a lot of audiobooks, but this one was the first ARC that was sent to me in audio form, and I'm all for it. 

Either way, today I'm talking about audiobooks, as in 5 awesome audiobooks, that you can find "free" on audible. If you're an audible user, you 've probably noticed the new feature, which is called the "Romance Package". I guess it works a bit like Kindle Unlimited (but unlike KU, I can actually subscribe to this one), and it allows you to binge on romance audiobooks that are part of the package. And let me tell you, there are some amazing books in there. If you want to see how it works and explore a bit, check it out here.

Now, I'm not writing this post to convince you to join audible or to subscribe to this package. But I'm gonna mention 5 audiobooks that I've listened to in the past, that are part of this package, and that are so so worth it.

Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan
This book broke me. It's beyond beautiful and I would advise everyone to read it - either by audio format or any other format. It's just that good.

The book is narrated by Kris Koscheski and Emily Durante, and they both do an amazing job with the narration. Listen to a sample here to see if you would like it.

The story is beautiful and heartbreaking and so so worth it.

"When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.

Archer's Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love."

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata
I stumbled upon this audiobook by accident, and I'm so glad I did. This is a super slow burn romance, from coworkers, to friends to lovers. The writing is captivating and even though this book is massive, the romance is so good, that you won't even mind.

I said the book was big, right? It translates to around 16 hours of audio, read by Callie Dalton, but she does an amazing job, and carries the book. Check it out here.

I loved the writing and I loved the story, and I highly recommend this one.

"Vanessa Mazur knows she's doing the right thing. She shouldn't feel bad for quitting. Being an assistant/housekeeper/fairy godmother to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary. She has plans and none of them include washing extra-large underwear longer than necessary.

But when Aiden Graves shows up at her door wanting her to come back, she's beyond shocked.

For two years, the man known as The Wall of Winnipeg couldn't find it in him to tell her good morning or congratulate her on her birthday. Now? He's asking for the unthinkable.

What do you say to the man who is used to getting everything he wants?"

Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely
Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely is a brand new release, and it will only be available on audible for the the first 6 weeks, only being released as an ebook and paperback on March 20th. I just finished it yesterday and I ended up really enjoying it (click here if you want to read my full review of it).

The narration was AWESOME and done by Richard Armitage and Grace Grant, and yes, Richard Armitage as in the ACTOR!

Either way, Lauren Blakely is the queen of audiobooks for me, because her stories always translate so well to audio, and she always chooses the most amazing narrators.

"The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he's the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I've ever heard.

My mantra is simple -- Don't mix business with pleasure. I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say -- that I want him to take me back to his flat -- tonight.

Except there's a catch...

One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure...

And it involves the toughest work ever -- resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we're spending our nights tangled together, and I don’t want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I'll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.

What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing...unless one of you is leaving."

Where I Belong by J. Daniels
I searched this author because it was recommended to me, and I fell in love with her writing and with her series. I've read most of what she has and she still manages to surprise me and make me fall in love for all her characters. 

This is a short audiobook (just over 7 hours) and the narration is done by Stella Bloom. Amazing! Check out the book here.

"When Mia Corelli returns to Alabama for a summer of fun with her childhood best friend, Tessa, there's only one thing keeping her on edge. One person that she’d do anything to avoid.

Benjamin Kelly. World’s biggest dickhead.

Mia hates him with a fury and has no desire to ever see him again. When she decides to start her summer off with a bang and finally give away her v-card, she unknowingly hands it over to the one guy that excelled at making her life miserable, learning a valuable lesson in the process.

Always get the name of the guy you’re going home with.

Ben can’t get the girl he spent one night with out of his head. When she leaves him the next morning, he thinks he’ll never see her again. Until he sees her lounging by the pool with his sister.

Mia is determined to hate Ben, even though she can’t forget him.

Ben is determined to prove he’s not the same guy he used to be.

What happens when the one person you wish never existed becomes the one person you can’t imagine being without?" 
Egomaniac by Vi Keeland
Whenever I want a good entertaining story to listen to, Vi Keeland (and Penelope Ward) are usually a very good option, either together or by themselves. I loved Egomaniac, so much that it made me cry... yeah, it wasn't pretty...

It's a dual POV audiobook, that is around 8 hours long, and narrated by Andi Arndt and Joe Arden, and these 2 are AWESOME! There's one combination for audio that I like more, and that is Sebastian York and Andi Arndt, and if you are familiar with audiobooks, you know what I'm talking about. Either way, check this one out here.

"The night I met Drew Jagger, he'd just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn't an intruder at all.
Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He'd been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn't really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn't refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he'd let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn't help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day."

Talk to me. Have you read or listen to any of the books I've mentioned here?
