    "I have Narrator Trauma"

    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 .

    "Narrator"

    The narrator was awful. Story was good and interesting. Prefer someone else reading it allowed. Hopefully there is a new narrator for future books.

    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."

    Story
    "A Sweaty, Breathless, Public Servant Sandwich"

    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.

    "Definitely recommend this one!"
    Would you listen to Trauma Alert again? Why?

    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!


    Which character – as performed by Nicole Vilencia – was your favorite?

    Probably Dr. Torveau...


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Radclyffe has done it again!"

    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.

    ""Awesome Story""
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because it is a wonderful story and I think people would really enjoy it.


    What about Nicole Vilencia’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Hormones, Pheromones, Danger Zones"

    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.
