When you spend your life battling death, who has time for love?
Dr. Ali Torveau knows just how fragile life can be - she sees death and tragedy every day in the trauma unit. Battling the dark forces of fate is her life's work and she doesn't want or need anything else, certainly nothing as transient as love. Plenty of women try to change her mind, but she never has any trouble saying no. Not until the day firefighter Beau Cross shows up in her ER and sets Ali’s carefully ordered world aflame.
A First Responders Novel

rambunctiously soft spoken.
I don't know if I would have enjoyed this tale more of the serious Trauma doctor Ali ,battling her feelings for the hot and ripped firer fighter Beau, although not very hard if it wasn't was read by somebody who sounded like she was reading from a cook book her rhythm is of and with this kind of novel you need that ,granted this is not a a classic by any means but it didn't deserve this .It could have been so much better with a better narrator .
I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
Radclyffe is a retired surgeon who's become a bestselling author in lesbian romance, mystery, and erotica. She specializes in medical romances and is a pro at whipping up love concoctions.
The story revolves around a senior resident doctor who gets swept off her feet by a butch firefighter with a saucy attitude. I imagine Trauma Alert might've been a juicy day dream back when Radclyffe was making her rounds.
I would, and have! Like 5 times! I find that every time i have listened to it i get things out of it that I missed the previous times! Good story line. I would love to see this as a movie!
Probably Dr. Torveau...
Aside from some unnecessary assertions by Beau Cross and her need to relieve her tension quite often, I enjoyed this book. It's easy to listen to. Good narration.
If you have a medical background and are a lesbian, you'll love Trauma Alert! Believe me, after reading this book, as well as her others that are based out of the Pa, you'll wish you could work in this hospital and become part of the family.
Yes, because it is a wonderful story and I think people would really enjoy it.
She did an awesome job with the voices of the characters. When switching from one character to another she did a good job making each voice unique.
Trauma Alert was a very good book to listen to it keep me interested throughout the book. It had moments when I was laughing out loud at work because the funny moments were funny. It had times when it keep me on my toes because when it happened it happened. I can't wait for the 2nd book to come out and I hope it does soon.
Radclyffe will always get a 4 out of 5 stars with me. Two things that bother me; first, when a character is trying to talk about or explain a traumatic even in their lives the other character, instead, of just listening is always interrupting and replying their opinions. Second, could we have a longer ending once they make up! One thing that makes Radclyffe 4 out of 3 is the Narrator: Abby Craden your amazing!!
Yes. It was great. I loved it.
The crazy guy in the hospital scene.
I loved the book it is worth a listen.
So you can’t decide between the doctor and the firefighter? Take them both.
In the trauma center of the hospital emotions are suppressed while lives are at stake, but the driven, uptight doctor and the hunky, butch firefighter are clearly attracted to each other, even as they drive each other crazy.
“Trauma Alert” is everything I love from Radclyffe: tension, admirable women, and romantic pay-off.
"Follows on from 'Turn Back Time'"
This story follows on in a small way to 'Turn Back Time' and although I enjoyed it I did pick up a couple of small continuity errors which did spoil it somewhat. To my mind if I picked up on them, then really the editor should have noticed as well. However, another good story overall from the author and well read by the narrator.
"I like read the books because you read over."
Yes and on because I like the both of them.
It was set in hospital ,
I would like a it she was not out in a rush sometimes.
I like the same name has the book because the book this very good .
I think any Radcliffe book should be audible because is a very good write .
absolutely heart stopping
Heart Block...they both showed 2 females deeply in love but afraid to express it. in the end love did prevailed even though Heart Block was more touching than this.
my favorite scene was when Ali went to the bar and saw the girl all over Beau and got jealous. it was really amazing how fast she gladly placed ownership on Beau.
yes, when Beau told Ali that she was in love with her and Ali told her that she only wanted her for her body.
