Publisher's Summary

A psychological suspense novel of obsession and dangerous love. The new, updated edition of Too Late from the number one New York Times best-selling author of Verity.

Sloan will go through hell and back for those she loves. And she does so, every single day. Caught up with the alluring Asa Jackson, a notorious drug trafficker, Sloan has finally found a lifeline to cling to, even if it’s meant compromising her morals. She was in dire straits trying to pay for her brother’s care until she met Asa. But as Sloan became emotionally and economically reliant on him, he in turn developed a disturbing obsession with her—one that becomes increasingly dangerous every day.

When undercover DEA Agent Carter enters the picture, Sloan’s surprised to feel an immediate attraction between them, despite knowing that if Asa finds out, he will kill him. And Asa has always been a step ahead of everyone in his life, including Sloan. No one has ever gotten in his way.

No one except Carter.

Together, Sloan and Carter must find a way out before it’s too late....

Colleen’s worst book yet

This book was awful. Colleen needs to stop romanticising domestic violence and women being ‘rescued’ by men.
I hated Sloan and Carter more than any other characters. The plot seemed so implausible, unrealistic and just plain bizarre to me as someone who worked in criminal law for 5 years.

Very dissatisfied

Extremely disappointed by the graphic Blasphemy that continued throughout this book. I am offended greatly, will never purchase another Colleen Hoover book again

Story average, performance excellent

It’s not often in an audiobook that the performance so far outshines the prose.

Whilst an interesting premise we are faced with an almost unlikeable protagonist, antagonist and a storyline that whilst making sense does return to a formulaic base of a female victim of domestic violence who continues a pattern of conditioned behaviour even into her new, supposedly healthier relationship.

Well read overall, good audiobook for a drive or in the background. Not Hooper’s best work, but an ok piece.

the story itself

the poor interpretation of a man and womens voice by the opposit sex just makes the story cringe when they do it.

Colleen Hoover doesn’t know a single adjective or adverb

Blandest trauma p*rn i’ve ever read in my life. Every character was so cringe and the voice actors sounded like they were dubbing an anime (no disrespect to them it was her writing that did them dirty). We must stop Colleen Hoover.

To late

There were some great twists but I felt like it went to far near the ending. It could of been wrapped up in the first of second twist and created a part 2 for more story development. Good listen though.

Loved it

I love how this was a little different to the usual style of Colleen Hoover and drew me in from the first chapter wanting more and kept me guessing and hopeful until the end.

This is a Romance / Thriller

Male perspective: I put this story on by accident thinking it was something else not knowing anything about it. It was interesting so I got invested, however it wasn’t the thriller I thought it was. Be prepared for a lot of feelings, apologising for things out of their control, him holding her and trying to quieten the sound of beating hearts. Definitely going to appeal to the female audience more although the action stuff is good. Reminds me a little of outlander with the irrational love.

Triggering and poor narration

The story itself is very graphic and vulgar… not unlike Hoovers other books, but definitely worth noting. It could be very triggering for some.
The narration was honestly painful to listen to. The girls voice was monotone, deep and annoying. Carters voice was rushed and he kept taking deep breaths each sentence… I found it very distracting. Overall didn’t love it! Had some good twists and turns but wouldn’t recommend or read again!

The F word does not a story make

A surprisingly good suspense tale is defeated by an author's lazy reliance on the F word for dialogue. The plot can be summarized by characters say F, F, F. Assault. Sloan cries. Repeat.

This was a really great book. I liked the different different perspectives--especially that of the narcissist, sociopath.
Well done!

The worst!

I don’t know where to start. I have read and enjoyed so many Hoover books. Usually without reading the title details. The subject matter, the characters, the female narrator, the dialogue. All bad! I stuck it out hoping there would be a nugget in there of the usual CH novels. Nope! Don’t bother.

Great story, poor narrator choice.

If you’re a CoHo fan you’ll love this. The story was great. A little predictable, but she manages to write from the perspective of a psychopath a little too well!
The narrator choice was awful. The voices, particularly Sloane and Carter were robotic and unnatural. The female narrator had a strange cadence to her voice that just didn’t work for her character. She sounded like a news reader!

The gripping story.

I downloaded this some time ago and when I first started listening to it I didn't think I would like. Thankfully I continued and I was totally gripped. I can honestly say it was brilliant. Best one I've listened to so far.
