Nothing except Carter.

Performce

Emma needs to stop drawing out the last word of every sentence. It really makes it hard to listen to her. If she could stop doing that i would have given 5 Stars. I've listened to several books with her narration and they are all the same. Hope this helps.

Too many epilogue

Where does Too Late rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is good but not CoHo's best book

If you’ve listened to books by C. Hoover before, how does this one compare?

so so

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

A good story line. The bad dude is the center of the story.

Good story with excellent narration.

Asa is a bad dude. Dealing drugs, psychotic, manipulative, deceitful and he has a hold on Sloane. Sloane is going to school, trying to make something of her life but is being dragged down by toxic Asa. In comes Carter (Luke). He is undercover trying to take Asa down and during his time undercover, he falls in love with Sloane. From there, all hell breaks loose. This book is suspenseful, dark, exciting and full of romance.

I really did enjoy this book. It wasn't until the epilogues that I started to disconnect. There are numerous epilogues that you got the closure you needed, but then another epilogue came and the drama started again. This made the book choppy and it pulled me from the story.

I understand this book was written on Wattpad and added to over a period of time. It's evident in the audio. Knowing this, the book makes more sense but it still doesn't mean that it is a distracting way for the book to be put together.

The narrators did amazing. They were the perfect fit.

Good story but horrid female narrator

I really enjoyed the story but Emma Hudson's words linger somehow. I had to bare thru it in order to even listen to it. I like the story but it is hard if you've ever been raped or a victim of domestic violence and there's no warnings.

So different than anything from Colleen Hoover before, and I loved it.

I'd really like a chance to smack Asa, and so I'm hoping that Colleen sets up an interactive exhibit one day so we can just walk up and slap him. This was so different from anything she has written before but has the same brilliance behind it. The story brings your feelings right to the surface as you get dragged into the intensity of the characters. I don't want to give anything away but I loved the beginning and it gets better every page.

3 Too Late Stars

This is going to be a hard review to write.

I didn’t like characters; the story line was meh to me.
I don’t know.
I didn’t hate it I don’t think?! I am just kind of all confused.

I know this isn’t like anything Colleen Hoover has wrote before so I mean I knew that going in. But I guess I kind of hope I would at least connect with the characters even just a little bit?!

Sloan, I just kinda of wanted to yell you can’t be this DUMB! Not in smarts kind of dumb but in life kind of dumb. And I gave her points for the way she was raised but that can only go so far.
She had a feeling about Asa, why, why didn’t she listen to that voice.. Grrrr

Then we have Asa, I kinda want call him Assa. Because this guy was smart as a whip but dumb as a post. Ha, if your like what do you mean once you read it you will know what I mean.
Ahh and Carter, I kind of liked him a little but then I was like DUDE WTF, and yeah I am left with a bunch of WTF, and ?!?!?!

Also the epilogues threw me for a loop. Tooo many..

I enjoyed the female narration, and Carters voice, Asa’s narrator was a little nasally for me. But overall it didn’t ruin the story.. The story did that.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

This book needed a lot more editing.

Right up I am going to say I normally love Colleen Hoover. This book, not so much.... There are few writers who manage first person present tense POV quite like Colleen Hoover. Her ability to use this POV to mine a character's motives and emotions is unsurpassed. However in this case the angst of this novel wavered between perpetual melodrama and overwrought tedium. It was waaay too long. At least 25% of the book could have been edited without losing the story. I also found it really difficult to like any of the main characters. Yes it's ok to have deeply flawed characters but they shouldn't get on your nerves. I think that the repetitive sexual violence, while accurately capturing Sloane's misery has the effect of alternating between desensitizing and torturing to the reader. Having come close on the heels of returning a credit for the first time for one of Colleen Hoover's books after abandoning the aptly named "Without Merit" when I had listened to only 3.5 chapters, I have to admit that I am likely to be very leery of purchasing future titles regardless of what name C./Colleen Hoover is publishing under. The narrators did a reasonable job but ultimately they can't redeem a poorly written story.

five stars to this author!!

This book was probably the most intense book I have ever read/listened to. It was amazing! easy to follow even though towards the end there was alot going on. I won't spoil it! I highly suggest this read if you like suspense and a very twisted love triangle.

22 Jump Street with a LOT of sex

I enjoyed this book. There were some clever, well-written parts but also a couple of very predictable parts and very cheesy moments. I kind of wish I had just read the book though because I'm not sure 2 of 3 actors were suited to the parts. Asa is well cast. He pulls off the confident meets creepy lines perfectly, but the woman who reads for Sloane sounds like she's in her 40's. The actor who plays Carter, a character aged 25 but posing as a 22 year old college student, sounds like what Bruce Willis hopes he'll sound like when he hits the big 7-0. Would recommend reading the book but give the audiobook a miss.
