Audible Editor Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

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?

    "midnight man"

    This is the first in the series,but I don't think I want to read the other books. The hero was so over the top macho I found him offensive, especially when he says a women couldn't beat a guy. The women was too needed and you got it the first 50 times the author described how much they found each other attractive. The action was slow in coming and not enough for a seal book. Plus the other members of the security team were mentioned but there was no brotherhood bond.. all in all I was bored.

    Story
    "Needs a different narrator"
    Would you listen to Midnight Man again? Why?

    I would only re-read to pick up what I missed the first time through.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Liked the suspense and unusual romance


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alexandra R. Josephs’s performances?

    Yes if the narrator reads another book in the series I would listen to her again.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Learning about John's history was moving.

    Story
    "Like watching TV"

    This one is written by a woman, and yet the whole time I was reading it, it felt like something a guy would write. The male is over the top macho, gun toting super trouper, and the woman is a damsel in distress. Yeah, their both flawed and needy and sexy time ensues, but I've had a belly full of this kind of plot in the numerous cop shows that crop up year after year. I read to get away from this crap.

    Nothing new here.

    "Cliche story with minimal plot"

    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.

    Story
    "WHY IS THIS BOOK ON AUDIBLE'S LIST?"
    What disappointed you about Midnight Man?

    This is a poorly written bodice ripper disguised as a thriller. 80% of the dialogue is of the male and female protagonists' sexual feelings and activities. I will admit that I laughed many times through the dialogue and about half way through, when I was about to stop wasting my time with this one, I just hung on to see if there ever was a plot. But, about 70% done, I just had enough of "his bulging chest muscles" and their "throbbing" this and "rock hard" that, and stopped. I was annoyed that I spent time and credits on this one for sure.


    What could Lisa Marie Rice have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not given up her day job.


    What didn’t you like about Alexandra R. Josephs’s performance?

    Not being a fan of romance novels, it's hard to judge.


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

    Annoyance. A feeling that Audible needs to do a better job of judging the worthiness of its choices.

    Story
    "I really wanted to like this."
    What disappointed you about Midnight Man?

    The story and characters were poorly written...actually what story there was could have been told in 30 minutes. It was 8 hours of sex, badly written sex.


    What was most disappointing about Lisa Marie Rice’s story?

    I'm not sure this one was even written by her. The whole thing was a disappointment.


    Did Alexandra R. Josephs do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did an ok job of narrating but John voice was somehow off. Of course there wasn't even a character developed even to have a personality.


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

    The only redeeming quality was when it finally ended.

    "EXCITING AND SEXY"
    Any additional comments?

    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....

    Story
    "Sex with Little Plot"
    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    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.

    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?


    Any additional comments?

    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.
