It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s theme is…

Top Ten (well, 8) Audiobooks:

Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren
Book Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Dirty Rowdy Thing (Wild Seasons #2) by Christina Lauren ~ The audiobook that started it all! This was the very first audiobook I ever listened to, and let me tell you, it was the best decision I ever made. You haven’t lived if you’ve never listened to Sebastian York’s narration (who is my favorite male narrator).

Control Burn Resist by C.D. Reiss
AudibleEbookPaperback • Goodreads

  1. Control Burn Resist (Songs of Submission #4-6) by C.D. Reiss ~ Jo Raylan, one of my FAVORITE female narrators, voices Monica in the Songs of Submission series and her voice is divine! I especially love the way her voice changes for male dialogue. This is one of the few audiobooks I’ve actually re-listened multiple times. I highly recommend this series for those who love erotica.

#1 ~ My Review • Audible • EbookPaperback • Goodreads
#2 ~ My Review • Audible • EbookPaperback • Goodreads

  1. Wildest Dreams & The Golden Dynasty (Fantasyland #1-2) by Kristen Ashley ~ If you’re a KA fan or a fantasy lover, you HAVE to check out these audiobooks!! Tillie Hooper does such a stunning job at narrating these stories. And there are pretty epic romances in them too! I’m eagerly waiting for the rest of the series to come out in audio.

#2 ~ My Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Until the Sun Falls from the Sky & With Everything I Am (The Three #1-2) by Kristen Ashley ~ More KA (of course)! PNR fans definitely need to listen to at least the first two books in The Three series. A fascinating paranormal world and sexy alpha heroes make this series so great to listen to.

Kulti by Mariana Zapata The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata
#1 ~ Book Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads
#2 ~ Book Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Kulti & The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata ~ If you know me then you know MZ is my top favorite author ever (because Kulti is my favorite book of all time). I loved reading these two books, but re-experiencing them as audiobooks made them even better. Plus the narrator does a fantastic job, too!

Addicted to You by Krista & Becca Ritchie
Book Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Addicted series by Krista & Becca Ritchie ~ This is the only series where I have read all the books AND listened to all the audiobooks – it’s THAT amazing. The story is incredible and the narrators are perfect for the characters – if you love NA, you have to give the series a try! And if you’ve already read the series, trust me, you’ll love listening to it too.

All I Ever Need is You by Bella Andre
My Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. All I Ever Need is You (The Sullivans #14) by Bella Andre ~ Eva Kaminsky was the very first female narrator I fell in love with, and since she narrates all of Bella Andre’s books, I promised myself I would listen to all of Bella Andre’s newest releases, and so far I’ve been able to keep my promise and haven’t been disappointed yet. All of her stories are super sweet contemporary romances that are amazing to listen to.

Sebring by Kristen Ashley
My Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Sebring (Unfinished Heroes #5) Kristen Ashley ~ More… KA? Yeah, I’m a little obsessed with her audiobooks, because they always have the best stories with the perfect narrator. Stella Bloom is incredible with her narration here, and Sebring is perfect for those who only stick to the contemporary genre.

Release Day Review: Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren

Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren

Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren
Series: Wild Seasons #2 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: November 4th 2014
Links: Ebook • Paperback • Audible • Goodreads
Source: I received a copy from the publisher (Gallery Books) in exchange for an honest review

From the New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player, Book Two of the brand-new Wild Seasons series that started with Sweet Filthy Boy—a story of friends, love, and lust.

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other…which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.

I’m smiling so much!! God, how I adored Harlow and Finn. I had such high expectation for Dirty Rowdy Thing because I absolutely LOVED Sweet Filthy Boy (my review). Now that I’ve read this book, I can say that I am so thrilled to have experienced Harlow and Finn’s story.

We know from Sweet Filthy Boy that Harlow and Finn got, well, married in Vegas. But unlike their friends Mia and Ansel, Harlow and Finn annulled their marriage. They hooked up, had some hot sex, got married, got divorced, and that was the end of that. Or was it?

Finn and Harlow know that don’t have much of a future together – Finn lives up in Canada, Harlow lives down in San Diego; Finn is a fisherman whose job supports his entire family, Harlow doesn’t really have a set job or career. They are two completely different people, and yet when they’re together, none of that matters. I loved Finn and Harlow’s relationship – or more specifically, the changing dynamics of their relationship. They start off, well, on the wrong foot. They are pretty much jerks to one another, using each other for sex. But eventually, feelings get involved and they start falling for the person they ended up marrying all along.

Harlow is the outgoing type of girl. She’s fun, hilarious, loud, and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. I adored this girl. I had so much fun reading her thoughts, her narrative. She has a huge heart and she’s incredibly loyal – to her friends, family, those she loves. Aaaand… you can totally tell how much she wants to hate Finn, but can’t. She doesn’t exactly like him in the beginning though.

Finn Roberts, the only guy who ever managed to dodge my convenient guy-category strategy—Finn Roberts, the notorious ex-husband-of-twelve-drunken-hours-in-Vegas, who was good with hands, lips, and body, and who made me come so many times he told me he thought I passed out.
Finn Roberts, who turned out to be an asshole, too.

When Finn comes down to San Diego for business reasons, sparks fly. Finn and Harlow inevitably see each other, and they can’t keep their hands off each other. They use one another to distract themselves from their worries and to escape reality for just a little while. It’s when it seems like there could be something more between them that they decide they should become friends instead, but that doesn’t exactly work out too well…

What I loved about Dirty Rowdy Thing was how much both Finn and Harlow changed because of each other. They learned something from each other – their preconceptions of each other were wrong, and they learned to see who the other person really is. They do hide things from each other – they don’t want each other to know their vulnerabilities, but when they do share parts of themselves that no one else knows, it’s easy for them to fall in love. They fall fast and they fall hard for the one person they can be themselves with.

He could only do rowdy because he felt what I felt: that whip-crack unleashing that comes when you meet the person who frees you.

Oh gosh, I freaking adore Christina Lauren’s writing. And thank god for dual narrative!! I loved being in both Harlow and Finn’s heads. And I ADORED the banter between them. Every conversation had me smiling and giggling. As much as I loved Finn, I do have to admit that I still love Ansel the most 😉 (Although that could totally change once I read Oliver’s book.) Finn was still ridiculously hot though. The pages in this book were ON. FIRE. Oh my god, the things that Finn says and does. I totally did NOT expect him to be the way he was, but I LOVED it. One sexy, hunky fisherman for me please!

Dirty Rowdy Thing was just so much FUN to read. It has an unforgettable cast of characters who will have you smiling so much. I wholeheartedly adored everything about this book!

4.5 hearts
