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.

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.

Unique

Audible – Narrated by: Emma Hudson, Max Thomas, Ryan Gray

I really struggled initially with Ms. Hudson’s fluctuation on her part as Sloan. It felt and sounded very flat and I almost DNF’d because it caused me to wince and while I didn’t mind the men’s voices her’s was so bad I almost felt it physically. However, I knew in the past when I struggled with a different type of voice, if I gave it some time I would adjust. I did and it got better. Although it also felt as though she had settled down into the story some as well as I did. After the rough start I was totally invested in all of these narrators.


This is a very fast paced story that never gets bogged down. I was a bit nervous when I realized it’s set up to sound a bit like a love triangle but you quickly realize that’s the last thing this is. A lot of this is going to be a bit iffy for the safety gang. Sloan is living with Asa who is not a good guy. She has really doesn’t have a lot of choice you will find. When Carter enters her life she wants what she can’t have. All along the way Asa is manipulating things in the background. I don’t want to give too much of it away.

I really enjoyed this book. I’m not sure all the ending with the epilogues was about but I was thrilled this didn’t end with a cliffhanger and we got a HEA. It was kind of questionable there for a while. This is not your standard Colleen Hoover book. This is very steamy and harsh and deals with some extremely heavy topics.

Pretty good book.

I think this book would have been better with a different leading lady narrating! It was hard to listen to at some points bc she sounded like a middle aged newscaster, rather than a college student. Other than that, it was a great story.

Great story. Horrible narration.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The female narrator is so hard to listen to that I almost didn't finish the book. The male performance was fine, but the female narrator sounded like a valley girl. So much so, it was extremely hard to get into when comparing to other audiobooks.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

Absolutely not. I will be making sure I don't buy another book with this narrator.

Any additional comments?

The story was great and I am a huge Colleen Hoover fan! The epilogues were a bit much. I would have liked to see them all as just part of the story.

Cannot stand Emma’s narration

I have listened to/read EVERY Colleen Hoover book and LOVED it. However, I almost didn’t finish this one mostly due to the female narrator. She made me really dislike Sloan’s character which was already weak compared to other COHO novels. My dislike was not due to the fact that this book was more adult than COHO’s other work (I’ve read/listened to a LOT more graphic), I just expect more from COHO on character development and making me feel really invested in them. This book completely fell flat and short of my expectations. Why so many epilogues and prologues and back to present day at the end? The last 3 hours were like that - annoying!!! I totally get why she published this under a different name. Not her usual quality.

Horrible female narration

Emma Hudson as Sloan was terrible. Her voice seemed too old for a college aged girl; and the way she drew out her words drove me absolutely crazy. I could barely stand listening to her parts of the book. The narration ruined my whole image of what Sloan would look and sound like and made me despise the character in general. It was bad.
The two male narrators were fantastic.
I enjoyed the story for the most part, but it's certainly not my favorite CH novel. It's darker, which I liked, but a little too unbelievable for me.

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.

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.
