Publisher's Summary

Blackout! The entire Southeast was without power...but there was still more than enough electricity between Elizabeth Major and Tom Quinlan! They were stranded together in a Dallas high rise for the duration...and setting off enough sparks to light up the darkest night.

The HEAT is so very ON~trapped with an ex lover~

PLOT: Elizabeth is trapped in a building with ex lover Tom who wants some answers.

Elizabeth Major is a woman with a secrets of her own. Avoiding any kind of man who can 'control her'....she allows HUNKY Tom Quinlan close enough to date. a night of passion flares (5 times in one night).....LOL....... When Elizabeth finds out "security expert" Tom had her investigated..... She dumps him and avoids him. When they become trapped in the BLACKOUT ....Tom is still looking for answers. An abusive marriage has Tom learning the key to Elizabeth is a matter of trust. HOT and sensual describes this audiobook by Linda Howard. A FAST 3 hour audio. Lesa Lockford is one of the better Dreamscape readers. This one does not disappoint. I give it 4 stars for Performance, and a fun and fast HOT story by the wonderful Linda Howard.

1997 Classic Linda Howard

Audible Escape, then 1 dollar sale
Thanks Audible for giving premium members different ways to listen or buy. Love 2021 $1 dollar sale.
Boy the old days were pretty Chauvinist and authors like Ms Howard were great at writing stories of the times. This classic is much of the same as Heaartbreaker, just a bit updated. Make sure you check the original publish date when you see lots of poor reviews at those reviewers purchased without knowing they were getting a classic pure core romance of those days past.
Were my comments of help?

oldie but goodie

It's been years since I read this one...it's still good. I enjoyed listening, narrator did a good job, book was short but as long as it was unabridged I approve.

TOO SHORT

Would you try another book from Linda Howard and/or Lesa Lockford?

I LOVE LINDA HOWARD

Would you recommend Overload to your friends? Why or why not?

NO

How did the narrator detract from the book?

OK

What character would you cut from Overload?

NONE

Any additional comments?

ALTHOUGH I LOVE LINDA HOWARD'S BOOKS, I WOULD NOT HAVE PAID THE PRICE FOR THIS ONE. IT WAS MY OWN FAULT FOR NOT READING THE TIME.

Black out surprise.

I read everything Linda Howard a long time ago, with this being on sale I went for it again. A decent short story for $1, I was worried it would be dated as per technology, but not too bad. No cell phones, but other than that a good romance, steaming with just the right amount of angst. Narrator is pretty good.

Yikes

Very sexist, hero stalks and manhandles heroine… she keeps saying that she knows he’ll stop if she says no, but then she says no and he doesn’t stop.
Not okay.
Published originally in 1993, so changing times account for some (most?) of it- but I would not recommend it to anyone in 2022… no redeeming qualities IMO
Narrator was good, but story sucked

DV cycle repeats with controlling stalker

This story hasn’t aged well.

Spoilers:

This is about a woman getting past an abusive, Sleeping With the Enemy style, husband. Unfortunately, the new love interest is just as bad. The number of times Tom steamrolls over Elizabeth is blatantly toxic. Elizabeth repeatedly lies to herself that he’d stop if she asked him to, but that just makes clear she still can’t spot an unhealthy relationship. The author protests too much, calling it “making love” while it’s actually him manhandling her and constantly shoving in with one powerful thrust, making this a completely unsexy, troubling listen. And, the “joke” at the end is that his plan B had been to abduct her in order to make her accept him.

Seriously Dated

This is seriously dated and not always in a good way. A woman has concerns about a dominate guy. He does stalk her and wants love and marriage. Love scenes are old fashioned and I don’t like the fact that he’s some what a bully. Narration is fantastic.
