6 of the best Enemies to Lovers Romance Audiobooks to Binge on

Contemporary Romances in Audible Unlimited Romance

“Enemies to lovers” is one of my favorite romance tropes. It gives me all the feels when the protagonists have to work their way out of bad behavior patterns and take a chance on each other, even though they have been burnt. It’s very “true love conquers all”.

And how can you not love the fantasy, that the guy who keeps challenging you is secretly head over heels in love with you? It’s a soothing thought, maybe even empowering. [... read more]

Dr. Strange Beard: This is not an escape!

Dr. Strange Beard (Winston Brothers book 5)
written by Penny Reid
narrated by Chloë Miller and Chris Brinkley

Pick it up on Amazon**

Penny Reid is one of my favourite authors. She was the one who got me hooked on Romance novels.

When I read “Neanderthal seeks Human”** (Knitting in the City book 1) almost 5 years ago I was absolutely amazed by how quirky and relatable her female characters were and how quirky and ridiculously hot her male characters were! So different from all the doom and gloom literature I knew up to then. [... read more]

Elements of Chemistry: The billionaire and the virgin how it should be…

Attraction Elements of Chemistry by Penny Reid

Review: Attraction (Elements of Chemistry, Book 1)

by Penny Reid
narrated by Cris Dukeheart

Pick it up on Amazon**

Jerkface alpha billionaire manwhore meets shy virgin

And yet the trope feels unfair and unfitting.

Kaitlyn is an outspoken feminist chemistry student. She just doesn’t want to talk to most people. Especially not to Martin Sandeke, who she secretly lusts after. When she sees him reduce girl after girl to tears, she decides to keep her distance. It’s just that he won’t quite let her because he wants much more than talk.

Oh, New Adult… what a wonderful genre. When your heroine is only 19 she can still go through fundamental personal development that makes sense and is realistic for an age at which you have to make some of the most influential life decisions. You can’t really do this kind of character development with adult (adult-adult… you know) characters in a believable way. At least not in one book or a short series like “Elements of Chemistry”. Now, it’s not just a wonderful genre, this is a particularly awesome series and a good example of Romance done right. Penny Reid has a fantastically witty sense of humor and I laughed out lout during the dialogue between Martin and Kaitlyn about whether being a possessive caveman is something women really like.

Cris Dukeheart did a great job with her sexy-cute voice (yes, that’s a thing, just listen to it!). She doesn’t have the most manliest man voices I’ve ever heard, but they are very good. The characters are easily distinguishable and I particularly liked her intonations which made the story even more interesting and captivating. Also, she really knows how to moan 😉

Be warned though, this is really one longer story divided into three parts. So book 1 ends on a major cliffhanger. If you want to listen to this, you have to get all three parts otherwise you will be so heartbroken! Come to think of it, I wonder if this series would have gotten more attention in a different format – something other than being a trilogy with each part being fairly short yet originally sold at “full price”. However, now that the entire series is in the Audible Romance package you should go grab it right away and enjoy!

 

Publisher’s summary
One week.
Private beach.
Invisible girl.
Jerk-faced bully.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Kaitlyn Parker has no problem being the invisible girl, which is why she finds herself hiding in various cabinets and closets all over her college campus. Despite her best efforts, she can’t escape the notice of Martin Sandeke—bad boy, jerkface bully, and the universe’s hottest, wealthiest, and most unobtainable bachelor—who also happens to be Kaitlyn’s chemistry lab partner.

Kaitlyn might be the only girl who isn’t interested in exploiting his stunning rower’s build, chiseled features, and family’s billionaire fortune. Kaitlyn wants Martin for his brain, specifically to tabulate findings of trace elements in surface water.

When Kaitlyn saves Martin from a nefarious plot, Martin uses the opportunity to push Kaitlyn out of her comfort zone: spring break, one week, house parties, bathing suits, and suntan lotion. Can she overcome her aversion to being noticed? Will he be able grow beyond his self-centered nature? Or, despite their obvious chemistry, will Martin be the one to drive Kaitlyn into the science cabinet of obscurity for good?
