American Panda is a sweet Young Adult Romance. Mei is only 17 and just started college. Her parents have her life planned out but Mei can’t make herself fit the plan, no matter how hard she tries. As heartbreaking as this story is at times, it also had me laughing out loud often and the Happy Ending is perfect! The audiobook is narrated by the amazing Emily Woo Zeller.

Angela Rysk is one of my absolute favorite voices! I found To Have Loved and Lost when looking for more audiobooks narrated by her. This is a very emotional College Sports Romance about two young women recovering from loss and finding love again.

Starting college is an opportunity for Ben to start over. But he is unsure whether he wants to share that he is transgender, something he would have to talk about if he wants to start dating. Starting from Scratch is an adorable Friends to Lovers Romance. Jay Northcote is a fantastic author whose stories always get me because they are so raw, real, and emotional.

Smut is one of my most favorite College Romance books of all time! The story is funny, super steamy, and so damn cute. This is a great Enemies to Lovers novel about two college kids who can’t stand each other but are forced to work together on a project. And of all things, they end up writing Erotica!

I loved Only When It’s Us so much! There’s Willa who is such a badass when she is in control, but so insecure when it comes to dealing with people outside of her inner circle. And Ryder who struggles with anxiety after losing his hearing to an infection. This is a beautifully written, emotional Enemies to Lovers. And I was so, so happy when the two found their Happy Ending! Nelson Hobbs and CJ Bloom are perfect in this book.

Top Secret

Top Secret is SO GOOD!! It’s one of those books that made me feel absolutely infatuated. Teddy Hamilton and Christian Fox are perfect at bringing LobsterShorts and SinnerThree to life. This is a love story that starts in a hook-up app and it’s so emotional and funny and sexy. An absolute must-listen, both for fans of College Romance books and M/M Romance in general!

Jock Row

Jock Row takes the popular nerd/player trope and goes its own way with it. This book has an unusual but wonderful pace when we accompany Scarlett and Rowdy while they hang out on the porch and talk. This is one of my favorite Friends to Lovers books and a must-read among College Romance books!

Misadventures of a College Girl

Misadventures of a College Girl

written and narrated by Lauren Rowe
Get the Audible book**

Lauren Rowe is one of few authors I trust when it comes to virgin heroines. She knows how to take care of her girls! And so, Zooey and Tyler go on an extremely steamy, very satisfying journey in this super fun novella. But Lauren Rowe isn’t only great at writing, she’s also amazing at bringing her characters to life!

Torn And Bound Duet

Torn and Bound Duet book 1: Torn Apart

written by Nikki Ash and K Webster, narrated by Kelsey Navarro and Tim Paige

If you enjoy angsty College Romance books and like both love triangles and “why choose”, you will have a great time with the Torn And Bound Duet! This M/F/M/M is super hot and emotional, but also has the perfect amount of angst to really give you all the feels. I absolutely loved Torn Apart and Bound Together!

Trade Me

Best College Romance Books: Trade Me

written by Courtney Milan, narrated by Xe Sands and Sean Crisden
Get the Audible book**

Trade Me is one of my all-time favorite Romance novels! I loved Tina’s and Blake’s story, the thrifty badass girl and the heir who isn’t as spoiled as he seems. Courtney Milan is such a fantastic author and Xe Sands and Sean Crisden are among the best narrators out there. This audiobook is an all around great experience and so worth it!

Getting Schooled

Getting Schooled

written by Christina C. Jones, narrated by Sean Crisden and Adenrele Ojo

I will never get tired of recommending The Wright Brothers series by Christina C. Jones! The first book, Getting Schooled, is one of the College Romance books with older protagonists. Jason is 28 and returns to college after having been in the army. Reese is 26 and a TA. This is a super, super funny and emotional story that you absolutely do not want to miss!

Elements of Chemistry

College Romance Books: Attraction - Elements of Chemistry

written by Penny Reid, narrated by Fiona Fischer and Jacob Morgan
Get the Audible book in a deal**

Elements of Chemistry is a trilogy of College Romance books that’s so, so worth it! Book one and two end on a cliffhanger, so you definitely have to plan to go all the way if you want to get to Kaitlyn’s and Martin’s Happy Ending. Kaitlyn is inexperienced because she uses all her time to study, not to party. But she’s also a feminist badass! Martin is a bit of a player and also a rich jerkface. But he listens closely to everything Kaitlyn tells him and it’s just so wholesome and cute and damn hot!

I just love me a badass heroine and Brenna certainly qualifies! The Risk is book two in the Briar U series, one of the most popular among College Romance books. I loved the push and pull between Brenna and Jake. This is a super fun mix of a forbidden love and fake relationship theme. And Teddy Hamilton and Virginia Rose are such a pleasure to listen to!

Let’s Get Textual is one of the funniest, cutest College Romance books on Audible! It’s wonderfully narrated by Emma Wilder and you will laugh out loud again and again, I promise! This is such a wonderful story in which an accidental text turns into a chat friendship and then into more.

The Shameless Hour

College Romance Books: The Shameless Hour

written by Sarina Bowen, narrated by Saskia Maarleveld and Nick Podehl

College Romance Books often have virgin heroines who are looking to get more experienced. The Shameless Hour switches things around! Here we have a heroine who is a bit of a player and likes to party. The hero was holding out for his girlfriend, only to find out that she cheated on him. This is a very sweet love story and I loved the theme!

While you can tell that this audiobook was produced several years ago, the narration is absolutely fantastic! And the story… Oh my. Charade is heartwrenching. It’s deeply emotional and raw! And I felt so strongly for both Cheyenne and Colt who find themselves struggling with very similar, heartbreaking problems, and somehow, without meaning to, they help each other to heal.
