    I am a book junkie...I read and enjoy a variety of stories, so please don't "define me" by one book or review! :)

    Story
    "Intense and Well-done!"

    I enjoyed this story and found it quite addicting during my listen. It was intense, hot, emotional, and well-written. The characters were very compelling. I liked Faith, and even Grey while yes, he was intense and had moments of being very over the top and mean. For me, the author did a good job of establishing the reason why. I still found it compelling and did not find it offensive or unacceptable when in the context of fiction. Faith cared for her younger brother who had Down's Syndrome, and I don't feel that this was written insensitively. The offenses against this young boy were by his neglectful parents, and by Gray by evicting him from his home along with the entire family. To me, the writing did not try to pretend or convince the reader that this was okay. I enjoyed the relationship that developed between Faith and Grey, the way the passion between them grew into much deeper feelings that they were conflicted about...they both wanted to "dive right into" and had a hard time reconciling the connection between them at the same time. Natalie Ross' narration was excellent and well-done.

    "I get it!"

    Could have been a good story except for the gratuitous and repetitive sex scenes. I started fast forwarding to try to get to the real story. I get it the main characters are hot for each other..............I'm no prude but enough already. Narrator did a great job.

    "I agree with the 6 stars!!"
    What did you love best about After the Night?

    A book I couldn't put down. Of course since I am in Houston, the fact that the setting is in and around here was nice. I just loved the fact that Faith made something of herself and was smart enough to know what to do to protect herself and her assets.


    What other book might you compare After the Night to and why?

    This is my second Linda Howard and it won't be my last.


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

    Love the joking at the end, I have even shared it with friends.

    "This book was totally Hot!-Get this book"

    This book was totally hot! I see why Gray is one of the author’s favorite characters. I will never think of a bathroom in the court house or a message the same way again with out blushing. Natalie Ross also did an excellent job as the narrator.

    "Not so Good!"

    Except for Faith and Gray there was very little character build up with the other subjects in this book. Also a lot of the things that happened in the book were unrealistic, like the swim under the dock. The love making was brutal and again unreal especially the public restroom episode.

    "Bravo !!!!"

    Ditto and ditto!! I thoroughly agree with the previous two reviewers. This was the first Linda Howard book that I ever read and I anxiously anticipated having the opportunity to hear it on audio. Her ability to write page-turning suspense and passion is unbeatable, particularly when narrated by Natalie Ross.
    The story-line of Faith, who grew up dirt poor with an alcoholic father and adulterous mother, was inspiring as you watch her become a successful young woman. The romance between Faith and Gray, the hunky scion of a wealthy family, was perfect. Great book and well done audio.

    "Very Predictable"

    This was my first Howard book and not sure if I will buy another one unless it's on a very good sale. I had read what the other reviewers wrote and thought I'd give it a shot. I was able to finish the book but was disappointed that I figured out the "who done it" so quickly and how corny and predictable it was. Hate to be so contrary to the other reviewers who loved it, but I have listened to over 200 other books in the category and this was very mediocre at best.

    "The Best of Linda Howard"

    N.R. makes our hero, come to life and it is a hot story with a mystery. Not erotica but good writing at it's best. This is my all time favorite listen. Enjoy it as much as I have.

    Story
    "Purchased On Sale & SO Glad I Did"
    What made the experience of listening to After the Night the most enjoyable?

    The plot was interesting - the opening scene was dark & disturbing; a family getting thrown out of their home, which is needed to tell the rest of the story.


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

    I would make the female lead stronger


    Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not so I cannot compare, but I enjoyed her performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Some strong language and adult themes.
