Summary

Carrie Longmire lives life with a passion - whether at her job as a hospital CEO's admin, as star pitcher for the hospital's softball team, or in her latest romantic possibility, she gives 110 percent, and won't take less from anyone else. Maybe that's why she's still single. She's never met anyone who could convince her they wanted anything more than a fling. Friendly was fun, but not where she wanted to hang her heart.

Gina Antonelli had big dreams once, of riding her athletic achievements all the way to West Point and being the first in a long family line of soldiers to serve as an officer. When that dream died along with the girl she'd planned to marry one day, she'd vowed to forget about happily ever afters. Love hadn't gotten her anything but a broken heart and a ruined body.

When Gina agrees to renovate Carrie's soon-to-be new house as a favor to her brother's boss, she doesn't welcome Carrie's overtures at friendship or her own unexpected attraction.

loved it.

Americans don't really talk like that do they? Once I got used to the sketch show American accents I enjoyed it.

what is wrong with the narrator?

it's hard to fully enjoy this audiobook because the narrator gave Gina the worst voice possible. actually it wasn't the voice no, it was more the fact that she made her talk so slowly I wondered if she was on valium but just for Gina haha I wanted to like the story but I felt over all the audiobook was just okay because I had to roll my eyes about 30 times at the at the way they were speaking

Story good, voice actor terrible

It was really hard to get beyond how poor the voice actor was. Some of the voices were high and whiney and the others sounded like someone with a hearing disability. It really took away from the story. That’s really disappointing because the Rivers series had been enjoyable.

Good Addition to the Series. HORRIBLE NARRATION! Read the Book!

Started reading Radclyffe last summer and became an instant fan. Straightforward formula: Woman hurt by love, swears never to love again, new woman appears on the scene with a broken heart of her own. Instant attraction but they’re both afraid. But then a life altering event brings them together. I EAT IT UP! It’s excellent escapism. This is a good addition to the Rivers series. I was beginning to wonder when Carrie would find someone.

What kills this audiobook is the narration. Paige McKinney did an awful job on the third book. Why on earth would you have her record the fourth book when all the reviews slam her narration?

McKinney speaks so slow at times, I thought I had my app set at 0.75 speed. No, it was normal speed. I actually set the speed to 1.25 thinking that would help. I didn’t. It is most noticeable with the main character, Gina.

She makes Harper and Flannery sound goofy. These are two strong women. One is the heir to the thrown for Chief of Medicine and the other is the current Chief of Surgery. For reference for how they should sound, listen to the first book, Against Doctor’s Orders. Eva Kaminsky nails them perfectly. Kaminsky also does an amazing Ida Rivers.

I reached the point where I stopped listening at chapter 5 and bought the book to read.

If you’re continuing the series, this is a good addition. Not Radclyffe’s best, but good. I recommend you read the book.

And Audible...stop using Paige McKinney for Radclyffe. Abby Craden for the Honor series, Betsy Zajko for the Justice series, and Nicol Zanzarella for the Provincetown series. Coleen Marlo, Natalie Duke and Nicole Vilencia are great with the stand alone books and First Responder series. PLEASE bring back Kaminsky for the Rivers series.

Not Radclyffe's Best

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not highly recommend it as I would with many of Radclyffe's books. I enjoy the Rivers series (and most of Rad's other work), but this story felt a bit rushed to me - and more contrived than some of her other romances. While we got to know Carrie a bit better than in prior books, she seemed much different than I expected. She does not strike me as someone who would say they were well on the road to falling in love after such a short time. The narrator on this book did not help. I actually thought I had set the speed to slow down speech and had to check. She was difficult to listen to in many parts of the book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Radclyffe? Why or why not?

Yes. I have read most of her work and generally enjoy her stand alone books as well as the series she has published.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paige McKinney?

Abby Craden;

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Maybe.

Awful narrator

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

Change the narrator!

What other book might you compare Love After Hours to and why?

Very similar to all of Radclyffe’s books.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This narrator has ruined several books for me. She should be limited to children’s books or historical texts. She can only do two distinct voices and she always mixes the two up so you have no idea which character is speaking.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I could not fully immerse myself into the story because the narration was distracting.

Any additional comments?

Please stop using this narrator for romance novels!

Good story, narration ruins it.

Would you try another book from Radclyffe and/or Paige McKinney?

I love Radclyffe's work. This was another of her great stories. I don't like to be critical of a budding narrator but I would not buy another book from this narrator, at least not one with dialog between characters. I'm surprised any producer let this happen.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator has a beautiful voice when just reading the text but when she gets to the dialog, it is just awful. Emphasis is in the wrong place, voices don't match the emotions, voices don't even match the characters. Honestly, I had to stop listening to it and go to my Kindle and finish reading the book.

Could a Radclyffe book be other than excellent?

Wel it cannot, her writing and story telling is always great. Narration is a different thing...
There is no question that every narrator brings something different to the story, some capture your attention immediately to some you need to get use to. Paige McKinney is the one you need to get used to. If she could not give some of the characters this high pitch childish voice, I would be much happier. I don’t Kline the slow pace she uses, but I do mind when an adult lesbian sounds like a 5 year old child, and that is how Carri who is the main character in this book sounds like.
I love this series of books and am looking forward for some more...

I didnt really like this book

the narrator could have done a much better job at defoneing the different character voices. It just seem a little rush ... hopefully Brake and maghie story will be more steamier and hotter and the narrator should be the one that did the first book

Terrible narration

Narrator just awful. Book not that great either. Don’t really recommend this one. Author should spend a bit more time. Narrator should find another line of work.
