You promised yourself you'd never fall into the same sin again. You've prayed about it over and over, but it has tripped you up at the most inopportune times, knocking you back several steps. Will you ever be victorious? Maybe like Aaron Davis, among thousands of pastors, and millions of Christians around the world, you have felt powerless to overcome the same one or two pitfalls that have plagued you your whole life.

Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

What would have made Outlander better?

Give us hints at something interesting earlier. I assume she is setting up the book but honestly by the scene where she falls asleep in the field I was almost and asleep. I just couldn't force myself to put up with any more boredom for the hope of some rewards hours down the road. I read NOT to be bored!!!

What was most disappointing about Diana Gabaldon’s story?

it drones on and on and on.... I couldn't manage to put up with any more. If it gets better I just don't care at this point! Throw us something, anything that is remotely interesting to read earlier for crying out loud!

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

n/a

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

the narrator was very good

Any additional comments?

I read many reviews on Amazon discussing how boring this book was but still others that loved it. So, instead of reading I thought I would listen to the audio book instead. I really wish I could get my Audible credit back as it couldn't even keep me from falling asleep while driving! I had to switch back to radio in order not to endanger everyone on the road this morning! Maybe it gets better but I can't tolerate it long enough to find out!

Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

"Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray – well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern hear, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen."

If you could sum up After the Night in three words, what would they be?

Compelling story line

Who was your favorite character and why?

Faith was my favorite because she was so strong in spite of her background and in spite of having this feeling of having the whole town against her. There were moments where I was thinking, "why do you even care about these people? why would you want to live there anyway?" but overall I was convinced of the reasonableness of her motivations and impressed with her character and strength.

What could Stephanie Tyler have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Move things along a bit faster. There was too much back and forth and angst and it happened with two separate couples. I was just too bored to care about halfway through.

"My name is different every month: Brandy, Honey, Amy. Sometimes Joe doesn't even bother to ask, but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I'm called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing....My real name is Sadie, and once a month, over lunch, Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn't know is that, in my mind, I'm the star of every one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I'm practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life."
