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.

    "Perfect narrator!"

    Abby Craden does a marvelous job of bringing Quinn and Honor to life. In fact Abby does an amazing read of Radclyffe's books. I usually look out for her narration for authors I like.

    "Great read "

    I have a 45minute drive home from working the late shift. Listening to this book on my way home has made my drive bare able. Every evening I could not wait to listen to what would happen next. I will definitely read this author's books again.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Heartbreaking, heartwarming."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, this is a great story. You always want to know more... you can easily identify with each other the women in the story. The feel and tone of the book is real, this could be you or it could be me and the mystery behind each women is true to how we lead our lives. I bought this book on 11/6/14 and today is 11/27/14 and I have listened to it 4 times, it is just a beautiful story.


    What other book might you compare Fated Love to and why?

    I do not compare books to each other each book offers something new so to compare is unfair. I would say this is very much a Radclyffe novel and I personally love her novels so I guess, I would compare it to that. If you want to compare it to another author i think this is a little similar to some of Nicholas Sparks books just gay.


    What does Abby Craden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I typically do not like Abby Craden, I find her that she tries to voice the "butch" character of the story and to me it sounds like no woman I have ever met. Just because a woman is "butch" doesn't mean she sounds like a man. I will say in this story, maybe because Quinn isn't really that "butch" she didn't do it very much, so I enjoyed her doing this story. I own the entire honor series where Craden is the narrator as well and I think it is a large part of the reason why it is my least favorite series.


    Who was the most memorable character of Fated Love and why?

    Quinn completely she is like a dream woman. Smart, kind, gentle, knowing. The way she is portrayed in the book I do not think you can read it and not fall in love with her. At least I didn't.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though Craden is the narrator of the story still listen, its really a great book.

    "A beautiful love story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend that they listen to the preview to find if they can "get along" with the narriator for sure. The story is wonderful though, I would definately recommend to read it in some form, whether audio, print or e-reader. If you like lesbian fiction, this is a must read.


    What other book might you compare Fated Love to, and why?

    Many of Radclyffe's other titles. This is a romance with a medical setting.... of the ones I've read I'd say most like Crossroads. I have read most of Radclyffes work, and I think this is one of her best. I really enjoyed it.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Abby Craden?

    I found Abby Craden to be an irritating narrator, she has this habbit of leaning on the last syllable in every sentance. She also reads the entire book in this suductive voice which kind of cheapens it.

    I haven't listened to many audiobooks with narrators that might be suitible for this kind of book. I listened to Oath of Honor though, and I thought Betsy Zajko did a good job with that, so I'll have to go with Betsy Zajko.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Errrrm. I have no idea. Advertising is really not my bag.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually leave written reviews, I know that I am no good at it. I usually just leave a star rating but I felt the need to in this case as I thought the only other review that has been left was completely unfair (not to mention insulting to both the author and the readers!). While it is true that there are several erotic scenes, this is far more than a simple girl meets girl & falls into bed kind of a book.

    Honor and Quinn are well developed and multifacated, realistic, and extremely likeable characters. Honor's wife Terry was tragicly killed in an accident several years before leaving her to bring up their child with the support of her mother-in-law. I thought the issue of Terry's death was handled with sensitivity and compassion from all perspectives. Quinn has troubles of her own which has led her away from the career she trained for and causes some problems both professionally and personally for the both of them. Without wanting to give too much away Honor finds the strength to allow herself to love again and Quinn not only falls in love with Honor, but also grows to love Honor's daughter & finds a place for herself in their family.

    "Dire lesbian soft porn"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Mills & Boon readers with sapphic curiosity


    What was most disappointing about Radclyffe’s story?

    Insipid characters, weak plot, shameless overuse of the word 'throat' and derivatives thereof.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Abby Craden?

    A story about strong, independent, professional gay women deserves a stronger, commanding voice, not soft porn husky and voyeuristic


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fated Love?

    All of it
