Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts presents a passionate story from the thrilling Night Tales series....

Her voice was like whiskey, smooth and potent, but it was her contradictions that fascinated Detective Boyd Fletcher - the vulnerability beneath her tough-as-nails facade. Late-night radio announcer Cilla O'Roarke was being threatened by a caller, and it was Boyd's job to protect her no matter what. But the sultry deejay was getting under his skin, and the undeniable attraction that sizzled between them concerned the detective...because anything could happen on the Night Shift.

    Story
    "Night Shift"
    Any additional comments?

    The audiobook version of Night Shift is just over seven hours of listening, narrated by Kate Rudd.

    Character development is problematic with this story. Both main characters come across as over-the-top and sweaty romance-novel corny. The type-A cop is strong, gritty, handsome, hunky, patronizing. The female lead is vulnerable, swooney, with transparent infusions of inner strength mixed with girly-virginal dependence. Sound familiar? "You Tarzan, me stupid” is actually phrase in the book … meh. It would be funnier if the characters weren’t so stereotypical.

    That said, also very typical of Nora Roberts, the fundamentals are there for an interesting procedural. There is a bad-guy out there, stalking and terrifying. He’s calling a late night radio personality and threatening her life. Enter Tarzan-hero cop.

    About 70% of the story is devoted to the come-hither-get-away romance, 30% to the stalker mystery. Kate Rudd narration is okay, nothing special, but listenable.

    For the most part, Night Shift is a weak effort, in my opinion. Nora Roberts has created better stuff. But, that’s just me….you may love it!

    Story
    ""OK STORY LINE, HORRIBLE NARRATOR""
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Absolutely, main character is a winer and hostile about everything.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Give the main character some common sense.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was terrible! She made the main character sound like a cry baby.


    Could you see Night Shift being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No way!

    "Bad Narrator"

    Bad narrator. Bought a number of Nora Roberts most of which were narrated by Rudd and only listened to a few. Normally I can listen to bad narrators but Rudd is beyond what I can even tolerate.

    "Same Roberts story line, horrible narrator..."
    What did you like best about Night Shift? What did you like least?

    The book was meh, the narrator's main character's voice was annoying. She was a very aggravating character. If that was the author's intention, then she nailed it. I wanted to smack some sense into her.


    Was Night Shift worth the listening time?

    not really worth my credit

    The mystery. Who, Why,

    Where main character bumps into nemisis and doesn't realize it.

    Foster children being moved from place to place does effect them for life.

    Might be typical Nora Roberts formula but I love the way she writes so I enjoyed it.

    "Oldie but Goodie"
    Would you listen to Night Shift again? Why?

    Yes. I read this a number of years ago and found even though this is 20+ years old it has held up. Only dated info is the smoking and phone booths.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love the romance.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Billy came back to get Cilla.

    Story
    "Narrator isn't as bad as the other reviews say"

    I enjoyed this book. It kept my interest and was a fun read. I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews about the narrator. She wasn't bad or annoying. Sometimes, the main character did come across as a little whiney but it didn't affect what was going on in the story for me. I think that the fact that this book is one of Nora's older ones and still held up, is a huge accomplishment for a writer. Overall, this book was entertaining and well written. If you like Nora Robert's writing, definitely read this one. :)
