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.

#1 ~ My Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads
#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.

Audiobook Review: Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley

Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley
Series: Fantasyland #1 (full reading order below)
Audiobook Publication Date: June 21st 2016
Length: 18 hours and 49 minutes
Narrated by: Tillie Hooper
Links: Audible • EbookPaperback • Goodreads
Source: I received an audiobook in exchange for an honest review

Seoafin “Finnie” Wilde was taught by her parents that every breath was a treasure and to seek every adventure she could find. And she learns this lesson the hard way when they perish in a plane crash. But she never forgets and when she discovers there is a parallel universe where every person has a twin, she finds a witch who can send her there so she can have the adventure of a lifetime.

But upon arrival in the Winter Wonderland of Lunwyn, she realizes she’s been played by her twin and finds herself walking down the aisle to be wed to The Drakkar.

Thrown into inauspicious circumstances, with years of practice, Finnie bests the challenges and digs into her adventure. But as Frey Drakkar discovers the woman who is his new wife is not Princess Sjofn, a woman he dislikes but instead, his Finnie, a free-spirit with a thirst for venture just like him, without her knowledge he orders his new bride bound to his frozen world, everlasting.

But at the same time Frey plunges Finnie into a web of political intrigue that includes assassination plots, poison, magic, mystery and… dragons.

I absolutely LOVED Wildest Dreams!!! This might be my favorite audiobook from Kristen Ashley that I’ve listened to. Tillie Hooper’s narration is PERFECT, and the story is so epic and incredibly well-written. Wildest Dreams is my first non-contemporary book from KA, but I know it won’t be my last. For some reason, I was hesitant to read this book, but I’m so glad I got to experience it as an audiobook instead. I finished this 18+ hour long audiobook SO fast, because I just couldn’t stop listening! If you love a fantasy romance that will sweep you away on an epic adventure, get – this – audiobook!!

When Finnie discovers there’s a parallel universe where everyone has a twin and the twins of her parents are still alive, she doesn’t hesitate to find someone with the power to send her there. But when she arrives in Lunwyn, not everything has gone according to plan – her own twin has tricked her into switching places, so Finnie is now forced to marry Frey Drakkar, a fierce, savage warrior with the power to call upon dragons… and he hates Finnie on sight. So on top of navigating through this strange, fascinating world filled with magic, dragons, and elves, she has to make her new husband not hate her as much, and survive killers who want her dead.

Wildest Dreams really had it all. A well-developed world, characters that KA brought to life, and an epic romance that made me swoon. For a savage warrior, Frey was surprisingly sweet. Every time he mentioned Finnie being his ‘wildest dream’, my heart seriously fluttered. I adored the romance, the slow development of feelings, and I loved that even though Finnie and Frey are so different, they are so right for each other. I loved them together!

Tillie Hooper, the narrator, made what was an incredible book even better. I was so impressed with the way she was able to change her voice to fit each character’s dialogue, so no one person ever sounded the same. And props to her for being able to pronounce all the names in this book, because I know I wouldn’t even have tried to. She’s a brilliant narrator, and I know she narrates the second Fantasyland book as well, so I’m hoping the rest of the series will be narrated by her.

I will more than likely do another listen of Wildest Dreams, despite its long length, because it’s THAT good. I was sucked into this magical world KA created and I fell head over heels for the romance. Add in a flawless narration, and this audiobook was pretty much perfect for me. I can’t recommend this enough – if you have an extra credit, you NEED to use it on Wildest Dreams!
