    Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing's prepared her for the demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection - and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who's more than willing to provide it. Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she'd never get involved with.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I purchased this audiobook based on the amazon reviews. I don't think I listened to the same book because the majority loved the book. This story was boring, lacked depth, and the narration was slow and dull.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hopefully something better.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was very slow and sounded way to old to be the main character.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from After Hours?

    I would not have cut scenes but there really wasn't a story there.


    Any additional comments?

    I found myself fast forwarding through some of the book because it almost put me to sleep.

    New hairdo? Makeup? A dress? Where did his efficient secretary go? Because the woman in front of Brandon Duke is not the Kelly Meredith who left on vacation two weeks ago. He is shocked - and curiously enchanted - by her transformation. She says this makeover is all part of her plan…to become more seductive. And this billionaire is just the man to give his suddenly sultry assistant a few lessons in love. He'll go slow, savor every moment and then say goodbye - as long as he can remember just who is seducing who!

    Would you try another book from Kate Carlisle and/or Jennifer Woodward?

    No and No. Woodward portrayed Kelly as a complete bimbo! The voice was so annoying. I started this audiobook and quit after 2 chapters. I just finished today...days later. It is awful.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Very excited for Strangers


    What didn’t you like about Jennifer Woodward’s performance?

    Her voice made every female character sound fake and idiotic. She has the talent but maybe needs to listen to Angela Dawe, Gia St. Claire, and Elenna Stauffer for reference.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    nope

    Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood. The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it's all coming to an end. Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance? Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?

    Where does Seduced in the Dark rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The top! I loved these books and the audiobook does not fail.


    What does Emily Durante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emily Durante takes on a challenging accent and I feel she delivers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Probably something with the Little Red Riding Hood theme!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the Epilogue audiobook!!! Love to see who they will have voice Caleb!

    Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For 12 years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature.

    Katheryne says: "Dark, disturbing, perverse…but I loved it!"
    "CJ Roberts is amazing!!! Emily Durante delivers!!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes.Emily Durante delivers an amazing performance and does a great job taking on Caleb's strange accent. I read the complete series awhile ago and I am very impressed with the transition into audiobook format. Very happy with this purchase. Hoping Epilogue will be out soon as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Caleb and Livie's dynamic! Both characters have depth, flaws, and their will to survive is brilliantly written.


    What does Emily Durante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice conveys the true desperation within each character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It is upsetting due to the harsh nature of their meeting. There is nothing glamorous or loving in the sex trade and that was hard to take in. But I realize it is a story.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This audiobook is for someone who enjoys and elderly sounding woman describing sensual scenes and attempting to portray a young lady. Her Scottish accent is terrible.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Different narrator!!!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Corrie James?

    Angela Dawe or Kristen Potter.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I almost fell asleep. Nothing like the voice of a grandma to sooth me to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration is awful and ruined the story for me. I could not get into the book because the narration is so boring.
