Catherine is an accomplished neurosurgeon looking for a fresh start in a new city.

A chance meeting between the two imprints the doctor in Alexis's mind, with thoughts of Catherine pushing to the forefront months after they meet. When life places the pair in the same city, Alexis is unable to deny her attraction to Catherine.

Sassy Sapphic Romance!

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed reading this debut novel told simultaneously from the two main characters' perspectives and wondered how it would work on audio. It must have been tricky to navigate the narrations but it worked really well from my perspective and I thought overall the narrators did a very good job. I don't think the passionate sex scenes would have worked with the one narrator, so applaud the decision to have 2 good narrators for this audio. Some readers/listeners may quibble about the sex scenes but they are well written, in character, and are a realistic representation of a healthy active sapphic relationship where chemistry sizzles.

Awful narration by one of the narrators

One of the narrator was awful, it was as though EVERYTHING was as though her life depended on it! Every sentence was enforced every word urgent. Couldn’t listen to it it. Couldn’t even tell you much about the story because of that totally annoying woman.
Waste of money

Katherine's narrative is awful!

It was so bad I fiddled with the speed to try and fix it but it then made Alex sound like she'd smoked 5 spliffs before 8 rum and cokes! Good story, great descriptions but terrible voice for Katherine. She sounded high pitched angry the whole way through. Listened to it twice just to see if it was just me but struggled to finish it both times. Real shame as the story was very good and flowed along quite nicely, not at all rushed like some I've read recently

Confused

With this book I was slightly confused with it to be honest. The first half of the book was fantastic a lovely romance between the two women. Then the second half came and I was shocked it was all erotic and seemed to leave out the romance. The narration of the book also confused me, as I don’t think it was necessary to have two narrators both reading the same characters, it would have been better if the one narrator stuck to their own character.

omg

It wasn't until I was halfway through the book that I realized that I have read this before. Omg it brought the book to life, even if Catherine had two different voices. I loved it. I do have the second one to listen to now but omg this is such a great book.

Confused as to whether this is a romance novel or erotica?

The first half of the book was as I expected. Brilliant anticipation and unfolding of a growing bond between two women. The second half I thought was unnecessary. The scenes were well written but repetitive in nature as the last few hours of listening were almost all sexual. It wasn’t needed and took away from the story.

Audio sample is very misleading!

I have read this book a couple of times on my Kindle and loved it....listened to audio sample and thought it sounded great...why not listen for my 3rd time around with this book. I find it hard to believe that anyone will find the voice of Catherine appealing...it's just awful , sounds like she's in a panic and hurried. Unfortunately...they really ruined this story by using two narrators, the Narrator for Alex is very good and should have been the only one. I don't like being so critical but it's upsetting when a good book is too painful to listen to....definitely returning it.

Enjoyable erotic scenes:)

The storyline was refreshing but I didn’t enjoy the epilogue. I was hoping for a slightly different ending, but I enjoyed the book greatly. The erotic scenes were hot and wish more couples were as open to experiencing pleasure as in the book. In the audible version, I don’t prefer having two people read, I prefer just one person, especially since Felicity Munroe creates great voices for each character.

okay story, odd narrator switching

simple love story that could probably have been half the length. story line didn't seem to develop along. I also did not understand the use of two readers for this book, it was hard to get into since the readers were such different styles and both reading for the same characters. I felt like it threw off the characters personalities all book long.

Love is love ♥️

A very sweet f/f love story. The characters were very well developed as was the plot. I loved the theme of falling in love with a person and not a sex. The steam was zero at first and I was thinking it was a love story with no graphic sex but about 2/3 in is when things take off and... ya. Lots of lovin’ to be had.

It got a little long, but I broke it up and it was not an issue. I really enjoyed it. Love is love.

The story is good but the audiobook suffers bc of Catherine’s narrator

I really liked Alexis’s narrator’s voice. It’s the same narrator in Melissa Braden’s Soho Loft series. I skipped most of Catherine’s parts because of the narrator. Her voice was so annoying & didn’t fit the character. This book would be so much better if Catherine’s narrator was also Alexis’s narrator.

great story

I love the story, I’ve read the book several time. I’m not a fan of the two different narrators. It throws the pace of the boom off and made it feel a little disconnected.

However, great story just the same.

Narration is half perfect

Other half horrid. Why anyone would feel the need to supplement Felicity Munroe’s perfect narration is baffling. The voice of Kathryn is all wrong. I stuck it out be I knew I had felicity to look forward to. Story and characters are engaging enough keep listening, but print is likely the better choice for this one!

Not A Fan of Having 2 Narrators

I really loved this book. loved the story, loved the characters and it tugged on my heart strings.
I was not a fan of having 2 narrators. Catherine's character didnt have much consistency of personality between the two and it throws things off a bit. I preferred the way Alex's narrator portrayed Catherine's character. It was a softer more emotional Catherine.
Other than that, it's an amazing book. Happy listening!

eh

I have 2 big issues with this book. 1. the narration. Felicity Monroe is excellent as always and does a very good Alex. I did not enjoy Emily Bradford in this story. it's just so left field it actually ruins it for me. I get into the rhythm of her voice but it feels forced not right. then I hear Felicity doing Alex and it's perfect.

2nd... the story drags on forever. I forced myself to finish.

Torn

Overall I enjoyed the story. I read this first a while back and wanted to listen to it. I really hate to badmouth someone’s work, but I just can’t get through this review without saying that Emily Beresford should NOT narrate romance novels. Just no!!! Maybe she would be good for a thriller/suspense novel or something. She reads everything like it’s a chase scene. A couple of times I was able to tolerate her narration when she actually slowed down and softened her voice but that was rare.
Fortunately this novel is not only narrated by her. Felicity Munroe’s reading as Alexis was well done. The only criticism I have there is that when I read the book I heard Alexis with a less feminine voice. To me anyway, the author gave the impression Alex was more towards the butch side than femme but I guess that is mostly up to the reader’s interpretation.
So if you like Emily Beresford’s style, absolutely get this one. If you are more like me…see her name and cringe…maybe try the third book in this series or just read them instead. I love Diana Kane’s work and highly recommend.
