6 Black Audiobooks For Your Listening Pleasures

For many years I tried to get into audiobooks, but I could never get far into one. The voices just never seemed to connect with the words for me. They lacked the passion and emotion that was intended for the portrayal of the scenes they were reading. But then again, those books were for the masses. They weren’t for us. And it took me hearing one of my favorite books being narrated by someone that sounded like me to completely tune in. Someone who brought life to the characters the same way I do in my head to open me up to the world of audiobooks. I didn’t know that there were so many of our books out there for my listening pleasure. But I do now. Shout-out to Wesleigh Siobhan and her narration on Wins & Losses by Alexandra Warren for inspiring this list and my new obsession.

That’s just what happens when Seth and Phalin finally come face to face for the second time, and sparks fly that won’t be so easily extinguished. One thing leads to another and before either of them knows it, things get nasty in the best kind of way. The trouble starts when the heat leaves the bedroom and attempts to travel some place else. Some place deeper. Some place closer to love.

For Jane and Nigel, timing is everything.

It started with a trip to a rooftop bar. Actually, it all started with a command from my boss. I was sent out of town for business, a trip deemed necessary by my boss but bequeathed unto me because Robyn couldn’t miss her goddaughter’s debut as Elsa the Snow Queen in a local middle-school production of Frozen. So, I was the one sent out East to meet with leadership at our parent company.
