Publisher's Summary

After nearly a decade as a professional drummer, Diana Petrell leaves her rock-star life behind to continue her residency in emergency medicine. She's determined not to let anything stop her - not even falling in love with her aloof mentor, Dr. Emily Barnes.  

Emily has only ever focused on her career as a senior attending in the emergency department, and she isn't happy about having to babysit a resident with a 10-year gap in her resume, no matter how intriguing she is.  

But every time they work together, it's not just their patients' heartbeat that gets a little irregular. Soon, the once-clear lines between work and personal life begin to blur.  

When Diana's unorthodox secret past is revealed, putting her job in jeopardy, Emily has to choose between her career and her relationship.  

Contains mature themes.

Great Book!

I can’t say enough about this audible! The book had depth as both main characters are willing to honestly look at themselves to promote change and growth.

The medical scenes were well done and realistic. Being a medical professional it’s frustrating and mitigates the realism of a book, if the author has not done her research. This author definitely has done hers.

In my opinion there is no better narrator than Abby Craden. She is the best!

I look forward to more by both Chris Zett and Abby Craden.

Finally a tame lesbian romance novel

This book. I have had it for awhile. It’s my second purchase of a lesbian romance novel and I didn’t grab my attention fast enough. Plus I’m ashamed to say it took a long time for me to realize that Abby Craden is freakin fantastic. It took listening to her narrator another book. This book her voice is low and not super cute for both MCs. Kind of boring but after I knew of Craden’s talents (after reading all of her Georgia Beers books 😍) I was way more patient with her. Yes, the narrator is a huge thing to me. This story especially. It’s not a typical lesbian romance novel. For example, there’s no slowwwww burn romance for 2/3 of the book. The characters kissed pretty early on and there was very little fighting with your feelings and trying to deny them, no. There’s also no freakin breakup 3/4 through the book! Seriously. Once this couple is together, they stay together. The denouement is NOT the two MCs forgiving one or the other and getting together again. That is huge as far as lesbian romance novels go. I can only think of one or two other novels when the MCs don’t break up and for those, it’s usually due to them not getting together till the end.

This book was completely refreshing. Not too much medical stuff, which I fully appreciate. That stuff is boring in a novel. In my opinion. Not too much drama. Just enough. The sex scenes are tasteful. One complaint is why does 90% of lesbian romance novels have to be extremely descriptive with the MCs pubic hair. This one was overly descriptive for me. I, and most the lesbians I’ve been with prefer completely shaved. I wish I could ask these authors why they add that tiny detail in so much. Anyway minor complaint, no biggie. Great book.

Great Audiobook

I enjoyed this one from start to finish. Love a bit of ice queen, slow burn romance, in a hospital setting. The main characters and secondary characters are likable. Abby Craden narrating is always a pleasure. So worth your time. I will be listening to this one over and over.

The exact experience I wanted

not only is the performance and delivery amazing, the way the reader makes certain words and letters sharper, the way she does the voices, the delivery of every word and phrase is the best I've ever heard!

Great book

Great narration as always, the only complaint I have is the quality of the sound, Ms Craden has a beautiful sexy Alto which is very quite as well, and it was hard in some cases to actually hear her, and my devise was at its highest volume.
I loved the characters, Diana is a very strong character, I would have loved to know a little more about Emily’s relations with her mother (don’t we all have some espies with our mothers?)
All in all, get this book it is a great one.

Fantastic medical romance with a twist

Abby Craden as the narrator sold this audio book for me. The story was amazing...different...unique from other similar lesbian medical romances. Never thought I would enjoy this genre written by an author other than Radclyffe. I will be looking for other books by Chris Zett.
