Publisher's Summary

Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face to face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she's stunned. More troubling to the beautiful Assistant U.S. Attorney is that she's still wildly attracted to him.

Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn't thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case - but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can't say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn't mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won't give up on something he wants - and what he wants is the one woman he's never forgotten....

Enjoyable Book - But Not a Romantic Suspense

Where does About that Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Average

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kyle Rhodes - he was just a cool character. Had some really funny lines.

Any additional comments?

Although I enjoyed this book - I am disappointed that the second and third installments in this series had very little if any real action or suspense in them. The first book was the perfect balance of that and what I anticipated in the second and third books. The second had some action/suspense, but still nothing like the first one. This one - to me - was a straight contemporary romance. So - it makes the series a bit out of balance as far as theme goes. You think if the books is built around FBI/U.S. Attorneys offices that their will be a meaty action/suspense story line in each installment. But sadly - not so much.

Clever plot + serious chemistry = Perfection!

Story - This book has likeable, strong, smart lead characters. The plot has an interesting legal aspect which makes the background story interesting, and the way the characters meet and continue their romance is clever and romantic. They have serious chemistry for each other, which culminates in a couple pretty detailed, steamy episodes in the bedroom. The computer hacking element is a hoot, and so is some of the banter between the characters. My favorite is "Like Bambi taking his first steps"..... it's priceless! I wouldn't change anything about this story. It has everything you could hope for in a romantic novel.

Narrator - Good job. She does mispronounce a couple words, but it doesn't detract from the story. The male voice she gives Kyle is okay (it doesn't sound adolescent or nasally), but some female readers can do much better men.

Overall - If you like contemporary romance, you will probably love this book.

Great listen..

Any additional comments?

This wasn't as good as the other two books but I still enjoyed it. I really liked Kyle and Rylann but there was no suspense in the story, like there was in the others. It was nice to see Rae again, as well as Jack, Cameron, Nick and Jordan. I've really enjoyed this series and I'm off to read the next one now.<br/><br/>As to the narrator: Ms. White keeps surprising me with her narration. She did a wonderful job with the voices in this book.

Bad boys for me

Would you listen to About that Night again? Why?

I would. This is a book that can speak to any number of people. Rylann and Kyle were willing to fight for love and each other even when it would be easier to be apart.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kyle. I don't know what it is but I think that if there was a real life Kyle Rhodes I would seek him out.

What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The personality of each character as described by Julie James. She brought life and emotion to the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I managed to do so and then go to class the next day. It is a book worth sitting through. Putting it down would just be doing it a disservice.

What Happened? I feel cheated!!

The first two books in this series was great. This one however, lacked action, no FBI involvement, and a sappy uninspired love story, that was really boring. I gave the story 2 stars because that is about all it deserves. The story is Kyle Rhodes continuation after his sister gets him out of prison, we get more back story on his and his sisters life, that I could have done without, and Rylann the district attorney who comes on scene just in time for his new sentencing after making an agreement with the FBI in the previous book. This book left a lot to be desired, the whole story was totally off, uninteresting, and no action at all. There wasn't anything in this book to keep my interest and I barely finished it.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed the storyline. It was enough different to make it interesting. It's a light read. I recommend the book. However,...narration is so personal. Readers I love others criticize. I cannot figure out what I didn't like about this narrator but I couldn't listen more than 30 min or so...she just lost me. I found my mind wandering. I had to back up on this book so many times, finally just went all the way through. Her voice is not annoying...something in the voice pattern I think. Hope you don't have that problem.

Kyle Rhodes is back!

I love that Kyle Rhodes is back and we finally get his whole story and he gets a true shot at happiness and redemption. Great storyline, snappy dialogue and truly laugh out moments makes this book a great listen. I did the Whisper voice option of this title and I have to say that I preferred listening rather than reading this one. Karen White's narration is great!

Taking a chance on a bad boy

This story is romance from beginning to end. You start off thinking come on Kyle really big boy just because a girl dumps you. But then he grows on you and yes he does charm you. And then you can see the deli mina Rylann has to face. But through it all if you are a romantic you’ll find yourself cheering for them. I like the story.
