5 + stars!!! "Take a chance on something that terrifies you"....oh how I adored listening to this story. Lauren Blakely takes us on a journey of love that has me just smiling like a loon. Richard Armitage...this man could read me the telephone book and I would swoon like those cartoon characters with hearts popping out of their eyes and heart thumping like mad...Grace Grant ain't too bad either :) I loved the interaction between Joy and Griffin, I loved the descriptions we are given by the autho ...more
5 Truly Romantic Swoony Stars

I bought this on audible because I was too impatient to wait for March 20th for the ebook to come out. I'm so glad I did because this book as an audiobook is PERFECT!

Joy is a sassy, bold, smart and gorgeous American woman who decides to jump headfirst into her new job in Paris, France. She has relocated from Austin, Texas after a break up and she is determined to seize life with both hands. She meets the very handsome, lovely and generally all round HOT British guy,
This is probably Lauren Blakely's swooniest, dreamiest, and most romantic and beautiful love story to date. The Parisian setting is as enchanting as the characters themselves.

Joy Danvers-Lively is going on a much anticipated adventure to Paris for a new job and a new life. She's ready to leave her past behind and live her life on her terms. She's sassy, vivacious, smart, creative, and energetic. But it is hard navigating a new foreign city with limited use of the language.

Griffin Thomas is her

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

Wanderlust is officially my favorite Lauren Blakely book. It moved me in ways I can't yet explain. And time will tell, but I think it may have even changed my life - or my mindset at least (and isn't that truly the beginning of real change?). This may seem a bit dramatic, but I mean it sincerely. There were so many aspects of the book, from the setting to the characters, that truly resonated with me and I found myself pausing the book on

Loved. I love all the Blakely books I've read, but this one seems to top them all. Destination books seem to be the ones that leave a long-lasting impression on me, and this one definitely did. Paris has always been a place I'd love to visit, but now it's a must. And, I know I'd explore it in a different way than I would have before reading Wanderlust.
Joy and Griffin were a delight and their banter was so much fun. Watching characters grow in a realistic fashion is so rewarding, and Joy and Gri

A Review of Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely

Joy and Griffin - 5+++++ Stars

Ahhh, Paris! I had the pleasure of going to Paris just a couple of months ago and I LOVED it! I got to go to England to spend some time with my daughter and her family and she took me to Paris for my birthday! The connection between Joy and Griffin was immediate and even though both of them said they weren't looking for anything, I knew they would end up together in some way. What a wonderful storyline this was and a reminder
Le livre entier a touché mon coeur et mon âme. C’était un beau, romantique, émouvant périple à travers Paris et les coeurs de 2 personnes qui étaient destinés. **

Have you been to Paris? If you have, you will smile your way through this book, as it is as much a love note to one of the world's amazing cities as it is about the romance between Griffin and Joy. If you haven't been to Paris, this book will make you feel like you have...reading this book feels like Paris. All of the details are right,

This book is incredible! I love every book that Lauren Blakely writes, and have listened to almost all of them too.Wanderlust has taken over the top spot in her books. The audio version of Wanderlust is simply delicious. Richard Armitage with his ever so sexy British accent, and Grace Grant are superb as Griffin and Joy. Lauren made me feel as if I was walking the streets of Paris with all the attention to detail. This book gave me so many feels, and especially such sexy feels. The love scenes a ...more

Oh my gah! This book is so fracking amazing! I’m head over heels in love with Griffin and Joy! The narration is amazing, the characters are fantastic, and the story is so romantic and perfect! The backdrop of the city serves as a secondary character in the best possible way. It's an amazing and swoon-worthy romance. One of Lauren's absolute best!

Once again I feel like I've experienced a new adventure in this book. Better narrator's could not have been chosen. I fell hard with the accent along with the vibrant descriptions of Paris. The story inspired feelings of contentment and left me with a yearning to visit myself. Great story, perfect narrator's and endearing characters. Everything needed to earn a 5 star rating .

This is a must listen if there has ever been one. Grace Grant. I absolutely love her voice. She just has this way of coaxing you into the world she's narrating. I get lost into every story that she's narrated. Then throw in Richard Armitage and all those luscious accents. I'm a puddle of goo.
I loved the storyline. It was fresh, sweet, sexy, funny, and everything in between. I loved how swept away I felt with this story. I will definitely be listening to this ag

I absolutely adored this book! I am a huge fan of British accents (2 ex boyfriends were English), so the words in the beginning spoke to me! “A sexy accent is the truest aphrodisiac.” This book taking place in Paris was perfect. The romance and magic of the city Lauren writes about transports you. Having spent time living abroad I found I could relate to the magic described! I absolutely adore Joy’s perfume collection/obsession and her ability to give Griffin back that joy. Smells can truly tran ...more

All the Moments Stars

Beautiful, amazing, enchanting. Full of love, heart and discovering what you love can be the best feeling in the world. Lauren did it again. She created a wonderful tale, and based it in Paris, making it even more magical. Joy and Griffin have my heart. Simply go read it (or better yet, listen to it)!

Though now watching The Hobbit will be a bit weird. Oh Mister Armitage. Damn, you have a mighty delicious voice *blushes*

Wanderlust is the most romantic book I have ever read. Set in Paris, Wanderlust will take you on a trip that is not only romantic, but beautiful, breathtaking, and sensual.

A hot British guy. An American woman. Both in Paris for different reasons. An epic love story that will stay with you for a very long time and is my favorite read of the year.

Wanderlust is not only a beautiful story, but it is beautifully written. Lauren has captured everything that Paris is. From the sites, to the food, to th

ohh la la...who would have thought that a dirty talking Brit living in France and speaking the language would get me going? Ohhhh wait...I mean that sounds like a effing dream!!!!!! Griffin has ALL the things I want...ALL of them! I would stroll with him through the streets of Paris and just day dream away of all the naughty things he would do to me once we got back to his flat.

It's no secret that I adore Lauren Blakely. Her writing never ceases to amaze me but Wanderlust? It just blew me away. The story is so incredibly full of love and passion-both characters and life in general- that I was moved to tears more than once. This is a book that I will come back to over and over again.

I'm enchanted. Wanderlust has put a spell on me. Its romantic and beautiful and I was captivated from start to finish. I want to go to Paris. I want to experience the magic of Paris the way Joy and Griffin did. It's been a few weeks since I read Wanderlust and just thinking back on it makes me tear up and gives me a tiny ache in my chest. If two people were ever so deserving of each other it's Joy and Griffin. Selfless, unassuming, only wanting the other to be happy, even if it means giving up t ...more

I want to go to Paris now!!! I truly could visualize everything in this book. I could tell by the descriptions of everything that Lauren Blakely wrote about what she saw while visiting the city or did some great research. I think that was my favorite thing about this book, seriously I could taste the chocolate with berry's and lime juice and to me that is awesome writing.

Griffin is a seriously great character because he was so realistic to me. He had some hard situations in his p
Virginia Hill
Wanderlust was much more than an audiobook. It was a lovely romantic adventure. I’ve never given a lot of thought to Paris—knowing I’ll never visit—but Lauren Blakely’s descriptions of the Paris that Joy and Griffin adored charmed me immensely. Richard Armitage performed his first contemporary romance so dreamily! And Grace Grant was fabulous, as usual.

I’m so glad to have found Wanderlust, and that it was available to listen to as part of the Audible Escape Package.

This is without doubt my favourite book of Lauren's to date.

It took me on a journey through Paris, and I could see, almost taste, smell and feel everything the characters were experiencing. Griffin and Joy have a connection off the bat, and in the bedroom they are certainly a match for each other! OOH la la!

I tell you, If there is ever just 1 book (and there isn't) of Lauren's to put to film, this is it. Or do this first!! I have to see this come to life. Reading gave me the feels, tear s

As if I needed another reason to want to read a book by Lauren Blakely, she made an announcement that had me inwardly squealing and not-so-inwardly jumping up and down with glee: Richard Armitage would be one of the narrators of Wanderlust. If a crystalline picture of the handsome British heartthrob doesn’t immediately form in your mind, do yourself a favor and Google him. That way you know just who is whispering sweet nothings in your ear while you listen to Wanderlust, the author’s new Audible ...more

Sexy, swoony, romantic, funny, this had everything. The narrators for this audio book were amazing and made the story come alive. #1 I love this author's books and grab each one as they come out. #2 I grabbed the audio book specifically because the male lead is performed by Richard Armitage.

Wanderlust is Lauren Blakely's newest adventure. I have read all, yes all of Lauren's books, and I have to say this is up there with my favorites! It's one of her more romantic books. Yes, it's set in Paris, but along with the city, the characters are just swoony and fun and sexy. An American and a Brit in Paris. Both living there temporarily for two very different reasons. They meet and there's instant attraction and electric chemistry. Griffin is working as a translator and he's pretty much a ...more

I love it. Just love it! I finished it Friday night, but had to let it settle a little before writing a review. I have never been to Paris, but feel much like I have now! I really enjoyed the way the City of Lights came to life along with the romance between Joy and Griffin.

Joy's name certainly is fitting. She is just full of joy, and when something happens to bring her down, she pumps herself back up quickly. She is very determined to enjoy her life after having left a bad relationship. When s
