Audible Escape Audiobooks I Want to Read

As an avid romance audiobook reader, Audible Escape is one of my favorite services out there. It’s like it was made for me.

But… it’s REALLY hard to dig through all of the audiobooks available on the service to find out which ones I should read. It can be almost overwhelming.

I’ve already curated two lists of audiobooks available on the service (at the time of posting) that I LOVE for those that are looking for recommendations. You can find my list of adult romance recs here and my YA romance recs here.

Now, I’m going to share my list of curated Audible Escape audiobooks that I want to read. This isn’t just a list I threw together willy nilly. These are books that are either by authors I really like or books that have been recommended to me. A handful are books that I added because I was intrigued by the synopsis.

I have a ton of books on my TBR that are available on Audible Escape and I’m constantly adding more, so I’ll likely make this an ongoing series if you’re interested!

Audible Escape Audiobooks I Want to Read

First isn’t so much a single book as it is an author who has a ton of her books on Audible Escape. I’m obsessed with Jacquelyn Frank‘s Nightwalker series and her Shadowdwellers series. She has a spin-off series called World of the Nightwalkers I want to read that is available on Audible Escape as well as some steamier books that she writes under the pen name Jax that are available.

The Vampire Warrior Kings series by Laura Kaye
Laura Kaye wrote one of my favorite contemporary romance novella duets of all time: Hearts in Darkness and Love in the Light. I’ve only read one other book by her that I didn’t love, but I’m still willing to give her other books a try. I’m interested to see how her Paranormal romances are!

Havoc by Debra Anastasia
I read a short story that this author wrote in an anthology that I read a couple of years ago and hers was one of my favorites. I knew I wanted to read some of her books to see if she’d be a new favorite author. This one interested me. It sounds so intense and the synopsis doesn’t tell the whole story which is awesome!

Fallen Ink (Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs, Book 1) by Carrie Ann Ryan
This is a series that a few friends of mine really enjoyed. After reading (and loving) the Marked Men series by Jay Crownover, I was interested in another tattoo artist series.

Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland
I remember seeing this go around Goodreads back when it first came out. I’ve been meaning to read more books by this author to see if she’s for me.

The Princess and the Fangirl A Geekerella Fairytale (The Once upon a Con Series, Book 2) By Ashley Poston
I read and fell in love with Geekerella (which is also on Escape!) and I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while.

Dear Heart, I Hate You by J. Sterling
Jason Clarke is one of my favorite audiobook narrators and he happens to narrate this one. I also look for audiobooks based on the narrators, and when I came across this one – I noticed that the author is one that I’ve heard of before, but never read, so I decided to add it to my TBR.

Harley & Rose by Carmen Jenner
I adore this cover and the synopsis was intriguing, too. It looks like a friends-to-lovers romance with a twist.

Brant’s Return by Mia Sheridan
I’m slowly working through Mia Sheridan’s backlist ever since reading and loving Archer’s Voice. Jacob Morgan and Virgina Rose read this book, and I adore those narrators. Mia Sheridan has a bunch of books on Audible Escape, some I have read, many I haven’t, and I’m so excited to read more!

Cards of Love Three of Swords by Willow Winters
This entire Cards of Love series has been really intriguing. Willow Winters is an author who often attends Shameless Book Con that I go to every year, and I’ve never read anything by her before.

To the Ends of the Earth by Skye Warren
Skye Warren is another author that attends Shameless who I haven’t read any books from and I really need to.

 

10 Favorite Audible Escape Audiobooks (Part One: Adult Romance)

I am such a huge fan of Audible Escape and have been a part of the program since Day One. Since then, I’ve come across many favorites, so I decided to share them with you here:

All In Duet – Emma Scott

“I would love you forever, if I only had the chance…”

Kacey Dawson has always lived life on the edge–impulsively, sometimes recklessly. And now, as lead guitarist for a hot up-and-coming band, she is poised at the brink of fame and fortune. But she is torn between wanting to be a serious musician, and the demons that lure her down the glittering, but alcohol-soaked path of rock stardom. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch…

Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he’s vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans include seeing the opening of his glass installation at a prestigious art gallery…they do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.

Jonah sees that Kacey is on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight. But neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…something as fragile as glass, that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.

Blurred Lines – Lauren Layne

In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Alice Clayton and Emma Chase, Lauren Layne delivers a sexy take on the timeless question: Can a guy and a girl really be “just friends”?

When Parker Blanton meets Ben Olsen during her freshman year of college, the connection is immediate—and platonic. Six years later, they’re still best friends, sharing an apartment in Portland’s trendy Northwest District as they happily settle into adult life. But when Parker’s boyfriend dumps her out of the blue, she starts to wonder about Ben’s no-strings-attached approach to dating. The trouble is, even with Ben as her wingman, Parker can’t seem to get the hang of casual sex—until she tries it with him.

The arrangement works perfectly . . . at first. The sex is mind-blowing, and their friendship remains as solid as ever, without any of the usual messy romantic entanglements. But when Parker’s ex decides he wants her back, Ben is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ben starts seeing a girl from work, Parker finds herself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship on the rocks for the first time, Parker and Ben face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t go back. And maybe, deep down, they never want to.

Shifters series – Rachel Vincent

There are only eight breeding female werecats left…

And I’m one of them.

I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds.

Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked.

I’d been warned about Strays — werecats without a Pride, constantly on the lookout for someone like me: attractive, female, and fertile. I fought him off, but then learned two of my fellow tabbies had disappeared.

This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back… for my own protection. Yeah, right. But I’m no meek kitty. I’ll take on whatever — and whoever — I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays — ’cause I got claws, and I’m not afraid to use them…

The Gravity of Us (Elements #4) – Brittany C Cherry

Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another.

I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed.

Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.

Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.

Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.

Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.

Let’s Get Textual (Texting #1) – Teagan Hunter

A wrong number is supposed to be just that—a wrong number.

Delete. Done.

Do not continue to text. Do not flirt.

A wrong number shouldn’t be the first person on your mind in the morning, or the last at night…and you’re definitely not supposed to talk them into buying a baby goat.

Because that would be weird.

When Zach Hastings and I get into a wrong-number mix-up, we don’t follow the rules. We keep texting and flirting, because he’s wicked funny and perfectly nerdy and a wonderful distraction.

I’m not looking for love, and Zach definitely had the wrong number.

But maybe…

Maybe he’s the right guy.

A Little Night Magic (Nodaway Falls #1) – Lucy March

In New York Times bestselling author Lucy March’s new novel, Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he’s never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends—Peach, Millie, and Stacy—and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories.

Intent on shaking things up, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends… but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed.

As Liv’s latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side… and in the cross fire.

Can the most important things in life—friendship, love, magic, and waffles—get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?

But before long, they’re trading not just lives, but secrets, kisses, and heated nights together. No expectations might break Tina’s heart…but Blake’s secrets could ruin her life.

Attachments – Rainbow Rowell

“Hi, I’m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you…”

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It’s company policy.) But they can’t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill can’t believe this is his job now—reading other people’s e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers—not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth’s and Jennifer’s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can’t help being entertained—and captivated—by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?

The Kiss Quotient (The Kiss Quotient #1) – Helen Hoang

A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases — a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice — with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan — from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…

Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but to crave all the other things he’s making her feel. Soon, their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic…
