Okay story

The overall story was good, a typical love story; boy meets girl, girl likes boy etc. However, I could not get a grasp on the main characters because they "flip flopped" so much during the story. Additionally, the narrator's tone and voice for the main male character caused him to seem cold and harsh. The story line seemed a little rushed and far fetched at the end, which was in contrast to the slow story line throughout the book.

Another Eaton

If you could sum up Sweet Southern Nights in three words, what would they be?

Delightful Easy Listen!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Southern Nights?

I especially enjoyed the scene when Levi Eaton showed up right on time when Angela confronts her ex fiancé for the 1st time at her cousin's wedding.

Which character – as performed by Corey Allen – was your favorite?

Angela was my fav character performed by Corey Allen. His voice and inflections were just right for her. I don't think his voice was deep enough to really capture Levi Eaton's character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Eaton's...the Saga continues

Good Story Horrid Performance

Would you try another book from Rochelle Alers and/or Corey Allen?

Yes, I love her writing. She is incredibly imaginative, usually. This book was not a complete flop, but it could have been better. Maybe I was just frustrated by the reader.

Would you be willing to try another one of Corey Allen’s performances?

NO! He was dry, emotionless, and made me want to stop listening after the first 3 minutes.

True Love Story

Sweet Southern Nights was the ultimate love story. Two people not looking for love find each other and make wonderful music together.

Endless Love

Yes Loved it, the most memorable moment was when the very intelligent Levi Eaton days he & Angela were keeping company. Most of the Love novels end the same however they are easy & exciting to listen to.

Can't get pass the narrator

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better narrator for this book. The voices he uses for Bryant is so damn hard to listen too. I just couldn't listen pass chapter 2. These are supposed to be African American characters, but yet, he made them sound like white bougies!!

What was most disappointing about Rochelle Alers’s story?

The story sounds good. I just think I would enjoy this better as a hard copy book or e-reader.

How could the performance have been better?

Get a female narrator or at least another one.
