Publisher's Summary

Tobias "Slim" Jackson has the perfect life as a pilot on Gansett Island in the summer and in Florida in the winter. He's happiest when he's in the air, or at least that was the case before last summer when he met Erin Barton, Gansett Island's newest lighthouse keeper. Now he can't seem to find his usual enthusiasm for flying, winter in the sunny South, or anything that doesn't include her.
Erin has been stuck on pause since she lost her twin brother. She'll tell you herself that her life has been a hot mess since Toby died. After dropping out of law school, she's flitted from one pointless job to another, existing rather than truly living. Then she comes to Gansett Island to take over as the new lighthouse keeper and meets Slim, who happens to share her beloved brother's first name. That small coincidence is enough to convince Erin that she needs to spend more time with the dashing pilot - except for the fact that he's spending the winter more than a thousand miles from her.
Now Slim's come home to Gansett for the holidays and to hopefully pick up where he left off with Erin. He's got 12 days before he's due back in Florida to finish out the remainder of his winter obligations. A lot can happen in 12 days, but will it be enough to convince Erin that it's time to start truly living again?
Listen to Slim and Erin's story, and catch up with the rest of the Gansett Island cast in Desire After Dark!

Narrator made it hard to enjoy the book

Would you consider the audio edition of Desire After Dark to be better than the print version?

In this case, no. I can do better voice nuances in my head than this narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She was terrible at making distinctive voice changes for the different characters, especially the males. For Slim, she made him sound like he had a cold and sometimes slurred his speech.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

For the story, yes.

Any additional comments?

I am disappointed that Ms. Force used a different narrator. I hope for the next one she goes back to one's from the past. If she uses this one again, I will buy the hard copy and read it instead.

Male voice broken

I love the storyline of all of her books and am so glad to be back on Gansett Island! However I had a very hard time listening to this because the narrator kept making Slim's voice sound like he was hoarse! I kept waiting for a reason was he sick, did he lose his voice a tonsillectomy by chance? It was unfortunate. But still a good book.
