Publisher's Summary

Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face to face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she's stunned. More troubling to the beautiful Assistant U.S. Attorney is that she's still wildly attracted to him.

Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn't thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case - but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can't say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn't mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won't give up on something he wants - and what he wants is the one woman he's never forgotten....

    "What Happened? I feel cheated!!"

    The first two books in this series was great. This one however, lacked action, no FBI involvement, and a sappy uninspired love story, that was really boring. I gave the story 2 stars because that is about all it deserves. The story is Kyle Rhodes continuation after his sister gets him out of prison, we get more back story on his and his sisters life, that I could have done without, and Rylann the district attorney who comes on scene just in time for his new sentencing after making an agreement with the FBI in the previous book. This book left a lot to be desired, the whole story was totally off, uninteresting, and no action at all. There wasn't anything in this book to keep my interest and I barely finished it.

    Any additional comments?

    Kyle Rhoads is entertaining and somewhat childish when he gets in his brooding mood, but sexy and sweet at the same time. The story starts with both of the characters in college, when they first met for just one night and then they met many years later randomly. Overall cute story.

    Would you listen to About that Night again? Why?

    I listened to this series out of order, this was my first book...a mistake for me as I almost did not buy another from this author. Jordan's story, sister to our hero, was much better for me than this one. Then I purchased all the other 6 and I am hooked! They are all a great listen. I am now going to have to re listen to this book to truly get what I missed the first time.


    Would you recommend About that Night to your friends? Why or why not?

    I do not believe in listening to a series from the start if they are fully developed. I select a new start based on the outline. I liked the outline, but I really did not get the full enjoyment out of this story so I am going to re listen. Start with jordan story or the first book to get the
    full swing of Ms James humor.


    Which character – as performed by Karen White – was your favorite?

    I am now a total fan of Ms White's reading....I have purchased at least 25 books that she reads, since I first purchased this book. See my other reviews on this series


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No as this was my least fave of the series.

    Any additional comments?

    This wasn't as good as the other two books but I still enjoyed it. I really liked Kyle and Rylann but there was no suspense in the story, like there was in the others. It was nice to see Rae again, as well as Jack, Cameron, Nick and Jordan. I've really enjoyed this series and I'm off to read the next one now.

    As to the narrator: Ms. White keeps surprising me with her narration. She did a wonderful job with the voices in this book.

    "Lovable characters, but disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Julie James and/or Karen White?

    Yes...love the writer and the performer. I just don't understand why, when the first two books of this series were so good, she changed the premise of the story? FBI and US Attorney, should be more than slap and tickle stories.


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

    She writes with wit and sass...and it is fun, even when disappointing.

    "Hot sexy fun"

    They barely met when he disappears completely from her life. Many years later they meet again. These FBI series stories are a lot of fun. Each story introduces new characters while retaining a few from other books in the series. Loved these. Yes, they are fluff!! So much wealth. In all these stories, the characters are high achieving and well heeled. Where are the stories of the girl next store with two babies and unable to make rent?

    "Kyle Rhodes is back!"

    I love that Kyle Rhodes is back and we finally get his whole story and he gets a true shot at happiness and redemption. Great storyline, snappy dialogue and truly laugh out moments makes this book a great listen. I did the Whisper voice option of this title and I have to say that I preferred listening rather than reading this one. Karen White's narration is great!

    "What a fun series!"

    Okay, I am loving this series. I think what I love most about this book, and the series as a whole, is that the author creates couples that are truly good matches. Rylann is a smart & successful U.S. Attorney who is deeply passionate about her job. Kyle ends up being much more than just a billionaire heir. By the time they finally get together he is a self-made man ready to embark on a new & exciting business venture.

    Compared to the previous two books, this one had fewer action scenes. Instead James seems to focus more on the emotional/psychological. One interesting, and in my opinion good, difference was that Rylann & Kyle continually reminisced about their past. James uses these memories to explain how they first met, the reasons their other serious relationships didn't work out, and how they've changed from the people they were when they first met nine years ago.

    Karen White continues to do a good job as narrator. I say "good" instead of "excellent" because she has a certain style of reading that some people may not enjoy...a kind of rhythmic pattern. But I think that once you get accustomed to her voice you won't notice this pattern as much.

    "Very Likeable New Series!"
    Would you listen to About that Night again? Why?

    Yes. I would listen to About that Night again because it's an enjoyable story and I like the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of About that Night?

    The most memorable moment for me was when Kyle Rhodes shut down Twitter. I'm not the biggest fan of social networking, so the notion of this is thoroughly entertaining for me.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I have mixed feelings about Karen Whites performance.

    What I like is that she obviously has a wonderful voice for narration, she's able to create and sustain different voices for each character and she's able to effectively convey the emotion of each scene. Those are the 3 factors that need to be present for me to enjoy an audio book.

    HOWEVER and that's a big however-she has this way of way of narrating - specifically, but not limited to - conversations between characters in what I've named a high-low voice. I call it high-low because she'll start talking in a very pleasant falsetto, but will then suddenly drop down into a pleasant baritone-or vice versa. BUT the journey from falsetto to baritone is NOT pleasant, it's weird. I don't know anyone who talks like this in real life and if they did I would probably avoid talking to them at all.




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

    No. There were some lovely romantic gestures made that would make most women swoon, but I wasn't especially "moved".
