Audible Editor Reviews

Paging Dr. Love? Fated Love tells the story of two beautiful women - both skilled doctors in a Philadelphia emergency room - who don’t realize they’re falling in love with each other until they’re beyond a cure. Author Radclyffe shows off her gift for crafting believable characters and then throwing them into challenging situations in this smart medical romance. Her two heroines are dedicated, admirable characters who glimpse a future in each other that the losses in their pasts had made them think was impossible. The nuance and depth Abby Craden brings to these characters will keep them in your head long after the audiobook has ended.

Publisher's Summary

What do you do when your carefully planned life takes a wrong turn into hell? When Quinn Maguire, a dashing young trauma surgeon, unaccountably accepts a position as an ER physician, her new boss, Honor Blake, suspects that Quinn is hiding a dark secret. While the two declare an uneasy truce in an effort to work together, both struggle with mutual, and unexpected, attraction.

Honor, however, has more than one reason to resist her growing feelings for the attractive newcomer - not the least of which is that her heart belongs to the woman whose wedding ring she wears. Amidst the chaos and drama of a busy emergency room, Quinn and Honor must contend not only with the fragile nature of life, but also with the mysteries of the heart and the irresistible forces of fate.

Great characters!

I found myself not wanting the book to end. The tenderness and sincerity of the exchanges between the strong female leads was touching and yet raw. The narrator did a great job of conveying the feel of the words.

Sexy and romantic

One of my favorites so far. The narration is extremely well done and very sensual. The story is passionate and hot but also amazingly sweet and full of emotion. Love it.

Not Her Best

This one isn't a big personal favorite of mine, the characters are too iconic, a little too good to be true. Still in those times when you're between relationships or recovering from the loss of a love, reading, hearing or watching about a love this deep is therapuetic to the heart. Honor and Quinn are the type of women that everyone would like to be loved by; especially Quinn. Arlie (I'm guessing at the spelling) is a sweet irresistible little girl who will steal your heart and Linda is the friend that all of us would like to have. This book isn't filled with the most realistic women in the world, but they're both likeable, and lovable (not always the same thing) and it's a nice way to pass a few hours.

SA-WOOON!

I just started listening to audiobooks this year (yes - I know, I know) and have been going through them like mad since discovering the error of my ways. So now not only am I listening to new releases, but going back a ways to older favorite books on audio. Such was the case here with Fated Love, narrated by the delicious-voiced Abby Craden. I loved this book in the early 2000s and ate it up here again. We are so fortunate to have Abby narrate a good number of lesfic audiobooks. I'm getting to the point where I think I may have developed an addiction to her tones. Like - I want her voice to have my children. :-D Okay - not REALLY... but, well....really. lol In this book, ER Chief Dr. Honor Blake is still devastated after losing the love of her life in a freak accident when she was only in her 20s. Years later, she never even considered moving on and still wears her wedding ring. Then she meets Quinn Maguire, the gorgeous new trauma surgeon she got strapped with (and isn't too happy about it either.) Dr. Maguire is not only an extremely talented physician, she is also helpful, kind and loving and falls for Honor in a big way. Honor is terrified to feel again and tries to resist, but can't seem to keep her feelings for Quinn at bay. Abby does vulnerable like no one else and she also excels at love scenes. Good lord - I could listen to the woman all day long. This was a great listen - a wonderfully romantic story and perfect narration for it. Loved it and will listen again.

A book about real lesnians, finally!

This book often reminded me of great days I've been lucky enough to spend with warm loving lesbian women friends.
The love scenes between the women were very good and much more accurate than most. But it was the way it depicted the friendships of these women. It was so warm and loving it made me laugh, cry and smile often.
I highly recommend it!
I'd let Abby Craden read anything to me, anytime.

Disappointing- jumps around too much!

I was expecting more from a Radclyffe book. It jumps around a lot and it has long bouts of going between the actual story and mini-stories within the book. I thought the characters were not super relatable and some of the cliched lines made me groan in disappointment. I was not impressed. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY
