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....

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    Story
    "Clever plot + serious chemistry = Perfection!"

    Story - This book has likeable, strong, smart lead characters. The plot has an interesting legal aspect which makes the background story interesting, and the way the characters meet and continue their romance is clever and romantic. They have serious chemistry for each other, which culminates in a couple pretty detailed, steamy episodes in the bedroom. The computer hacking element is a hoot, and so is some of the banter between the characters. My favorite is "Like Bambi taking his first steps"..... it's priceless! I wouldn't change anything about this story. It has everything you could hope for in a romantic novel.

    Narrator - Good job. She does mispronounce a couple words, but it doesn't detract from the story. The male voice she gives Kyle is okay (it doesn't sound adolescent or nasally), but some female readers can do much better men.

    Overall - If you like contemporary romance, you will probably love this book.

    "Enjoyable Book - But Not a Romantic Suspense"
    Where does About that Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Average


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kyle Rhodes - he was just a cool character. Had some really funny lines.


    Any additional comments?

    Although I enjoyed this book - I am disappointed that the second and third installments in this series had very little if any real action or suspense in them. The first book was the perfect balance of that and what I anticipated in the second and third books. The second had some action/suspense, but still nothing like the first one. This one - to me - was a straight contemporary romance. So - it makes the series a bit out of balance as far as theme goes. You think if the books is built around FBI/U.S. Attorneys offices that their will be a meaty action/suspense story line in each installment. But sadly - not so much.

    "Taking a chance on a bad boy"

    This story is romance from beginning to end. You start off thinking come on Kyle really big boy just because a girl dumps you. But then he grows on you and yes he does charm you. And then you can see the deli mina Rylann has to face. But through it all if you are a romantic you’ll find yourself cheering for them. I like the story.

    "A bit Anti-Climactic"

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the two previous books in this series, and am fond of Karen White's narration. But I found this one to be lacking a bit compared to the others. I suppose I liked the suspense of the other two and this one was more of just your standard romance novel feel.

    Still very enjoyable though! I will continue with this series.

    Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.

    "Third book in a lukewarm series"

    Well executed but predictable story; straight-forward, single threaded plot, watered-down legal situations. I don't regret using a credit, but I won't go out of my way recommending this one to my friends.

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    "Bad boys for me"
    Would you listen to About that Night again? Why?

    I would. This is a book that can speak to any number of people. Rylann and Kyle were willing to fight for love and each other even when it would be easier to be apart.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kyle. I don't know what it is but I think that if there was a real life Kyle Rhodes I would seek him out.


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

    The personality of each character as described by Julie James. She brought life and emotion to the characters.


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

    Yes. I managed to do so and then go to class the next day. It is a book worth sitting through. Putting it down would just be doing it a disservice.

    Story
    "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".

    I think this was my favorite one. Rather, Kyle has been my favorite character throughout. I loved all the books in this series. I hope there are more.
