Dr. Hollis Monroe specializes in short-terms relationships, typically eight months or less. As an obstetrician dealing with high-risk pregnancies, she spends all her time and energy in caring for women at a nice, comfortable professional distance until she delivers their babies and can walk away. They're happy, she's satisfied, and no one gets hurt. The perfect relationship.
Pregnant mother-to-be Annie Colfax is alone and barely making ends meet - she didn't plan on starting a family by herself, but she's determined to succeed. All she had to do is survive.
Neither woman wants a relationship, but fate brings them together at a crossroads that will change their lives forever.

Say something about yourself!
The reintroduction of Honor Blake and Quinn Maguire.
The conversation between Arly and her mom when 12 year old Arly was asked to a party by a boy who was 16. I loved the image of Honor had of Quinn throttling the boy.
The distinct voice variation between Annie and Hollis.
Annie Colfax because I'm a sucker for blonde hair and green eyes.
I noticed a lot of reviews of this audiobook were critical of the novel's author for becoming boring and predictable with her storytelling. For myself, this was my first introduction to the author, Radclyffe, and I found the story to be enjoyable and felt the narration of the book was excellent.
I held off at first from giving Radclyffe's novels a try because I noticed that most off her novels available on audible.com centered around characters in the medical field. Not being a part of that field, I wondered if I would be able to connect with the characters. I was pleasantly surprised and have enjoyed each Radclyffe audiobook that I have heard so far. I recommend giving this audiobook a listen and I, myself, have listened to it several times.
I didn't read the print version (although I own it...oops, double purchase), but I think that Lauren Fortgang MAKES this story. She is an excellent narrator, and each character has a distinct voice, especially Annie and Hollis. There was never a question over who was "speaking" in the story. So I highly recommend the audiobook version of this book. I am not sure if I would have enjoyed the print version as much without Fortgang's narration.
I've heard that this book is a lot like Radclyffe's other medical romances. I haven't read any of them, but I plan to, so I might edit this review someday.
HOLLIS. :) But then again, I'm a sucker for intelligent women with dark hair who can hold their own, have angst, AND build things. <3 Plus Fortgang's husky voice for Hollis was, erm, amazing. ;)
LOL I don't know.
I love Radclyffe writing. After reading lots of her books I feel like bring spoiled and allow myself to be picky. it is a great book but there are some others that I like better. It is the narration who elevate the experience to pure pleasure.
There are so many really good characters in that series, it's really hard to say that one is my favorite. If I had to choose, Annie.
The characters were very well done. When a child character is involved it's always a toss up if the narrator can handle that. She did well and gave the kids a believable voice.
I like the name it has.
Would highly recommend
I chose it at first because I he so much in common in the book as I am in my obstetrician/gynecology residency. It was well written and accurate on many levels.
This was a good quick summer listen. The performance was well done. The premise has been done a million times before but who cares. Give this one a try.
Yes, I have listened to this book a few times, and I just love it!
No, I haven't but she is GREAT! A+A+A+
A must read!! Excellent book, the author rocks!
I wish Nicole Zanzerella would narrate all the Radclyffe novels. She's amazing. Her tone and differentiation makes it feel like I'm actually reading the book.
"A bit too much like the other stories for me."
I have enjoyed other stories by this author, however, for some reason I found this one lacking overall. It just seems a bit too much like the same thing rehashed somehow, but that could just be my personal take, I have no doubt there will be others out there who enjoyed it and that's fine. It's not bad, just personally I do not think it is not the best by this author.
"great book, was well worth the wait"
i have not read the print version
all the moment that Annie kept on lusting at Hollis' arse until she finally confessed.
no, this is my first book by her.
actually no i was just waiting to see if Annie would really let Hollis walk away from her and not do anything about it. but it was really a good book despite it not having a lot of intimate scenes.
