15 Romance Novel Audiobooks that Combine Swoony Words with Great Performances
Jul 2, 2020
I had a brief run of listening to audiobooks when I had a long car commute in bumper to bumper traffic, but then the pandemic started and now I have no commute. Yay? I tend to mostly consume my romance in text, but for a variety of reasons some romance readers love audiobooks!
There are lots of benefits of audiobooks (hrm, in fact a lot of them are also benefits of podcasts, just saying, no ulterior motive) - but one potential issue is that you're adding in one more variable to the artistic equation: the narration performance. A ho-hum narrator can ruin a fantastic swoony romance, and a fabulous narrator can enhance it and take it up another notch.
So, given that I'm no audiobook expert, I asked listeners for their recommendations for romance audiobooks that combine an already fantastic romance with an amazing vocal performance that makes it extra enjoyable. Here are 15 recommendations to get you started or add to your existing catalog of romance audiobooks.
