June is Audiobook Month, So Let’s Talk Audio!

Let’s talk about romance audiobooks! Usually, people either love or hate them. A few years ago, I would’ve said that I hated them. The only ones I’d listened to were stiff and formal, and they did nothing to enhance the story. That is absolutely not the case these days! Audiobooks are becoming more popular than ever, and they can be a great way to experience your favorite or soon-to-be favorite books. A well done audiobook can enhance an already awesome read, and a fabulous narrator can make a steamy scene fan-worthy. Bonus points for being able to read while you cook dinner, do the dishes, or work on the computer. Audiobooks are a fantastic way to consume even more of the romances that you already love.

I’ve broken this list into a few different sections, so it works for new or experienced audiophiles. First, I’ve got some Jeeves-Approved books and narrators. I’ve definitely got a few favorite voices, and they would certainly make reading these already-great books an even better experience! Second, I’ve got a list of audio add-ons. Anyone who follows my deals list regularly probably has a great collection of Kindle books, and you can often add the audio for CHEAP if you already own the ebook!

You can easily purchase audiobooks a la carte, or subscribe to Audible for credits towards new releases and access to a back catalog of great books. Audio add-ons don’t require a subscription at all, but if you’re going to be listening to new releases, then you’ll likely want to grab an Audible subscription.

In this section, I’ve listed some of my favorite male narrators with the swooniest, sexiest voices. The books I’ve included are all “approved by Jeeves,” meaning I’ve read the books and have rated the stories as 4 or 5 stars. If you’ve got a favorite narrator, then this is the perfect list for discovering more great romances voiced by them.








Want to add more audiobooks to your collection, but don’t want to spend a ton of money? Audio add-ons are a great solution. I’m always one-clicking Kindle freebies and deals, so I’ve got a ton of cheap books in my collection. Now, if I want to add the audiobook versions to my library, they’re cheap as well. This also works with books you’ve borrowed from Kindle Unlimited – and the audiobook is yours to keep.

Audio add-on prices are ONLY available if you already own the Kindle edition OR borrow the book from Kindle Unlimited. For example: I grabbed the Kindle edition of Elle Kennedy’s The Deal as a freebie, and it’s only $1.99 if I want to add the audio, since it’s in my collection. So if you own – or have borrowed – any of the books below, then the add-on price is cheap. Not an Audible member? Good news! It’s not required to take advantage of these audio add-on prices!

  1. Jeeves, I love audiobooks but I dislike them for romances. Here’s why: I am currently listening to Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez, which is narrated by Julia Whelan and Zachary Webber. They narrate the female and male POVs respectively AND they also narrate the female and male’s voices within those chapters. Sorry, you still with me?
    What i wish is that if they’re getting a male and female narrator, I wish they’d have Zachary do ALL the male voices even within the female POV and vice versa. Julia W is great and all but she sucks at male voices. They all sound the same.

    1. I totally get that! Be on the lookout for “duet” narration vs. “dual” narration. Duet-style is getting a lot more popular, and that’s what you’re describing – the guy would narrate ALL of the hero’s speech, etc. Meghan Quinn’s new ones are in that style, as are Kayley Loring’s and some of Amy Daws’. I’m slowly working on putting together a recommendation list for duet-style, but they can be tough to dig up!

      1. Oh my gosh, thank goodness there’s such a thing as “duet” narrations. Looking forward to your reco list, Jeeves!
