#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.

""OK STORY LINE, HORRIBLE NARRATOR""
Absolutely, main character is a winer and hostile about everything.
Give the main character some common sense.
She was terrible! She made the main character sound like a cry baby.
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..."
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.
not really worth my credit
"Typical Nora Roberts formula"
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.
I loved the book from start to finish
Nora is a great story teller. I cannot wait to read her next book
"It was good just"
It was a good book. Just not as good as I was expecting. I liked some of her other books much moore
"Oldie but Goodie"
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.
Love the romance.
When Billy came back to get Cilla.
"1990 Was A Long Time Ago"
I've experienced mixed results with Nora Roberts novels but this one was cheap enough that I was willing to give it a shot; I managed to make it through the first hour, barely. The proto male lead was a handsy, condescending, overly directive, if not dictatorial ass. I was nine years old in 1990 so I don't really recall how adult men acted at that time but if one of my male classmates acted anything like Boyd Fletcher; he was humiliated by having his nine year old ass kicked by a girl. I didn't dislike the narrator as much as most reviewers did, however I did find her accent a little over the top.
I found this work by Nora a total miss; save your money.
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!
Not a good as Nora at her best. Narrator quite boring. Took ages to get into the story. Little disappointing. Kept losing the main thread.
