Audible Editor Katie is our go-to girl for all things Romance. Here she reveals the voices that make her pulse quicken.By Katie O'ConnorAug 5, 2017 3:29 PM
I wasn’t always a Romance fan. I stumbled upon the genre during a particularly difficult period in my life. I needed pure escapism (complete with some HEAs), and this was the genre that delivered. Once discovered, Romance became my go-to genre, and in turn I’ve become the go-to person at Audible whenever questions about the genre arise.
I’ve spent years hunting for my perfect book boyfriend. I tend to veer toward rugged, reformed bad boys — but what I’ve learned is that no matter the type of leading man, what makes all the difference for me is the performance. From Sebastian York to Shane East to Shayna Thibodeaux (is there something about the letter “S”?), I find my next listen based on the narrator more often than even the micro-genre. Check out my all-time favorite book boyfriends (and even my favorite book girlfriend) below.
