In the erotic fantasy Midnight Man, silkily performed with a coy wink by Alexandra R. Josephs, someone has just moved into Suzanna Barron’s building. He’s a man named John Huntington. And he just so happens to be the sexiest hunk that Ms. Barron has ever seen in her life.
The passion is not unrequited and the two quickly move to marathon lovemaking sessions - described with such detail it’s as if the listener has been issued a direct challenge not to blush.
Killers are also after Suzanna, by the way. But it’s okay. Because John Huntington is a former Navy SEAL warrior…because of course he is.
Interior decorator Suzanne Barron's new tenant is the most dangerously sexy man she's ever met. Navy Commander John Huntington, a former SEAL (aka 'Midnight Man') works best under the cover of darkness. Within hours of meeting him, Suzanne has wild, no-holds barred sex with John, then panics at the depth of her passionate response to such a powerful and dangerous warrior. Suzanne doesn't do sex like that. John is definitely someone she needs to avoid for her own peace of mind. But when killers come for her, Suzanne knows she can turn to only one man. John will guard and protect her body. But who will guard and protect her body against John?

I was so disappointed with this one. It was so predictable, cliche and weak in plot and writing. I don't know if I will listen to book 2, but I am not excited about this one.
Midnight Man was an all-around good listen. The narration was well done and the plot was exciting and enticing. I liked how well-rounded each of the characters were and how Rice seemed to make this book sexy and carnal while also bringing some modern femininity to her females characters and protective dominance to her males. In a round about way (whether intentionally or unintentionally), Rice addresses the need women have to be both independent and self-sufficient, but also protected and cherished. This is an age-old emotional need which is why we are so complex -- haha!
Be prepared to commit to the series (3 books so far) because Rice ends each book rather abruptly, but addresses the hanging ends in the next....
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
Yes, the book was so so in my opinion as was the performance.
This was basically a book describing the physical relationship...there was a bit of a mystery woven through but if you want to read for a thrilling plot - you should pass on this one. It IS action packed in the physical department and if you want to listen to something hot that gets the motor revving than you might like this one. It is NOT for the deep thinker and has no intricate mystery or plot hidden within.
The Navy SEAL aspect is minimal and didn't really have any effect on the storyline.

1 in a series of 3...I got the first 2 on sale. MAY purchase the 3rd to finish the series, but only if it's under $6.
I wouldn't buy them outright or use a credit.
As a psychiatrist addiction is important to me. I am addicted to audible books, kindle books, my husband, and my thirteen cats.
The whole series is fun, creative and sexy. OK, so its very alpha male sex and ooohhh so good sex scenes. yeah I gave into the call of erotica. if you like sexy alpha males taking their women into their protective arms, your gonna wanna read this one.
Books are to me what exercising is to those enthusiast. My pleasure is sitting down with a good book,its like" Calgon it takes me away"
Probably will, Hero a little too forceful than regretful. Not very pleasant at times.
The twist concerning main female character being persuded
Hot, Sexy and alpha
All of them
This is actually book 2 in the series. Listen to Midnight Run first.
This is the beginning of the midnight series. John is a alpha male to the extreme, he knows what he wants and will do what it takes to get it or her. Of course he has to protect her from the enemy and try to protect her from his intense sexual needs. After one taste of her he has to have more. The book had me totally engrossed from beginning to the end. I will continue with this series. Worth every penny save your credit for a more expensive book.
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
Look, Midnight Man is a real man and I would love one for myself. The story is really smooth and sexy. There is not a bunch of filler which I really appreciate. It gets straight to the point. .
Who else but John are you going to call when you find an Assassin in your apartment - he's your new Tenant, an ex Special Ops Navy Seal who's dangerous, dark, brooding and a total Alpha male. Well that's what Suzanne, a petite sweet interior designer thought and, like a Dark Knight, he came to her rescue.
This had a very sexy 'instant attraction' plot with murder, mystery and a touching few chapters but there were just a few things missing like - romance, I love you's, the truth to be told to her about what happened to her friend and it was an abrupt ending so it could have benefitted from an Epilogue.
Worth a credit? I liked the characters but I didn't love them, I liked the storyline but I didn't love it and I thought the author was good but just not great - however, despite this it WAS an enjoyable listen, so YES creditworthy and I will be downloading the next in the series.
OK, so, I've listened to better. Had it's good points. Narrator was good. It just needs something, like, a better story line. :)
