4.5 STARS

AUTHORS, HEED MY WORDS....IF YOU EVER GOING TO PRODUCE AN AUDIO BOOK FOR YOUR STORY, THIS IS THE WAY TO DO IT.

I have to tell you that menages and hard core sex scenes are not my thing and definitely not what I intentionally usually look for in a story. However, this audio book was recommended to me and now, i understand why.

The way these two narrators delivered the story and conveyed every single emotion, the dynamic, their chemistry, the combination of their voices, just made of this book a first row performance. Besides the story by itself, the way that i was wrapped-up and immerse was only because of their outstanding acting skills.

A ROUND OF APPLAUSE for this production and the author, you both nailed it.

THIS DYNAMIC IS WHAT I WISH FOR ALL AUDIO BOOKS.

Sometimes you don't mean to become another person. Sometimes the choice is made for you, and pretending is the only thing that keeps you going. When Alexis Romera is taken and her kidnappers find her fake ID in her purse, she must become Sophia in order to keep her family safe. Revealing her real identity to the man she's sold to would be easy enough, but can she trust him? Hell-bent on avenging the murder of his uncle, Rebel doesn't seem all that interested in playing things safe.

Set over the course of one school year, in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits - smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love - and just how hard it pulled you under.

Naomi: When I was kidnapped, I thought only of survival. I gave my captors exactly what they wanted: my skill with computers. Making millions for a crime lord who kept me imprisoned in his basement compound kept my family safe. When he was taken out, I thought my ticket to freedom had arrived. Wrong. I traded one keeper for another. This time I'm in the hands of a scarred, dark, demanding Russian who happens to be the head of the Bratva, a Russian crime organization.

Loved the music references, but the story was way too pretentious. The dialogue was unbelievable and most
time annoying.
However, the narrators where excellent, if it wasn't for them, i would have mark this audio book as DNF!

When Liv Taylor met a handsome stranger at a friend's wedding, she decided to give in to temptation. It was lust at first sight, and when she followed the man she nicknamed Mr. Tongue into a room before the wedding ceremony she experienced pleasure like she'd never experienced before. That was why she agreed to one night in his hotel room: one night of unbridled passion. That was all it was supposed to be.

Would you try another book from J. S. Cooper and Helen Cooper and/or M. Capehart?

i would love to, but NOT if they are going to be selling stories chapters by chapters. This is outrageous. Why not write a standalone book or a series. This book was only one an a half hour. I will NOT buy the next audio, if it will be the same as this one.

Would you be willing to try another book from J. S. Cooper and Helen Cooper ? Why or why not?

Did M. Capehart do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes. The male voice was a little off, but it was alright.

Could you see That Night being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Could be.although, this story has been told before. at least the premise.

Any additional comments?

Authors need to stop taking advantage of people. This is not the first time that I see, authors selling books by chapters. I will not support this behavior. I know they want to sell and make money, but have a little more integrity. I am very upset. This audio book was so short, that i would like to ask for a refund, just to make a point. Not my style though because i actually listened to the book, However, just because of this reason, the story could be AMAZING and i will not by the next installments, not even on my Kindle.
