Audiobook Review: Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely

Wanderlust 
by Lauren Blakely
Narrated by Richard Armitage and Grace Grant

Blurb:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance...

The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he's the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I've ever heard.

My mantra is simple -- Don't mix business with pleasure. I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say -- that I want him to take me back to his flat -- tonight.

Except there's a catch...
***
One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure...
And it involves the toughest work ever -- resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we're spending our nights tangled together, and I don't want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I'll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.
What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing...unless one of you is leaving.

Viviana's Review:
I LOVE Lauren's books! She's my "for me" aka pleasure reads! I always find a great mix of humor, romance and steaminess! She also has great taste in narrators!! This is important as we know that narrators can make it or break it when it comes to their performance. So imagine my glee when it was shared that the narrators for WANDERLUST were Richard Armitage and Grace Grant!!

I'm a fan of Richard Armitage... I LOVED him in North & South (BBC Mini Series), Robin Hood (BBC Series), MI-5 (BBC Series) and in the Hobbit movies! He has the look, acting skills and the voice!! MAN THAT VOICE and of course ACCENT! With all this fangirling occurring ... I've never listened to an audiobook he's narrated. So I was excited that he would be narrating Lauren's book.

This was a great story! Its a bit of a slow burn in that the hero & heroine do get to know each other before becoming intimate and I really enjoyed that. Their conversations were entertaining and they definitely had chemistry.

Lauren did a phenomenal job describing the Parisian setting! It was a perfect mix of information and details so the readers could visualize it and see it from the heroine's perspective!! So well done, that I'm sure many of her readers are now looking into booking flights to visit Paris!

Joy and Griffin were absolutely adorable. As I mentioned, they had chemistry and lots in common with enough differences to keep things interesting.

Narrators Review:

Grace Grant is a great narrator and her performance here showcases her skills! I think Richard did a great job as well, just not sure if it was a proper match... I mean... don't get me wrong. He has a damn sexy voice, I just think maybe it sounded a bit "older" than the characters's age.... Will readers enjoy it, totally!


Overall, this is a great story that all of Lauren's readers (new and old) will enjoy! It has a little bit of everything and you can totally tell that Lauren LOVES Paris and she did a lot of research!
