Publisher's Summary

Love has a way of derailing the best of plans. Wynter Thompson, divorced with a young child, struggles to balance the demands of her surgical residency with the responsibilities of motherhood - and between the two, discovers there is little time left for anything else. She manages to convince herself that she has everything she needs, because another chance at love is definitely not in her game plan.

Pearce Rifkin is a woman with a plan, and it doesn’t include a serious relationship. Chief Surgical Resident is just a stepping stone to her lifelong goal - chairmanship at one of the top ten medical centers. Determined to follow in her father’s footsteps, even though she isn’t the son he dreamed of, Pearce has no time for romance. Two women with nothing in common but a shared passion for surgery clash at every opportunity, especially when matters of the heart are suddenly at stake.

    "Ok book"

    As glad as I am that lesbian books are becoming available on audible, there are many more I'd rather see than this one. It's a cute story but if you've read Radclyffe once, you need not really read more if you want a different story. They seem to follow the theme of two unlikely people meeting, not getting along, falling in love, crisis, ending with living happily ever after. Again, loving that lesbian books are available but this story is old. There are also two skips on the recording making it a bit distracting.

    Story
    "One of my favorite romances"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Despite the short-comings of the narrator, this is one of Radclyffe's best medical romances. I've read it more than once and listened to it more than once.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Turn Back Time?

    The entire story is really great.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator, unfortunately, completely missed the personality of one main character and on occasion ignored written direction, such as a whisper or a tone of voice. Unfortunate for such a great story.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolute only thing wrong with this audio book is the fault of the narrator. Even though the author describes one of the surgeons as having a husky voice, the narrator gives her a wimpy little girl voice that never should be used for a grown woman, much less an aggressive lesbian surgeon.

    "Like Clockwork"

    Radclyffe’s books run like clockwork—and that’s a good thing.

    When I want to escape into a world of successful, driven women with not enough time or emotional availability for love, who just somehow find a way to each other, this is where to turn.

    The friction, delay, and tender first kiss between Wynter and Pearce in "Turn Back Time" really pay off; and the hospital scenes are riveting.

    With Radclyffe, you know what you’re getting, a satisfying clicking into place of the plot’s gears and cogs, and a sure diversion.

    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
    "Tension Turns to Romance at the Hospital"

    Two strong, dedicated women with set-in-stone plans for success find that their hearts have other agendas— with each other. From their first meeting where they literally butt heads, you can feel their friction, and frisson.

    Wynter's questioning and acceptance of a lesbian identity is presented in a refreshingly matter-of-fact way. It's personal, not iconic. Her "first time" was funny and tender at the same time.

    Like the lesbian relationship from Grey's Anatomy, but this goes places.

    "Terrible narration"
    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator got it all wrong. Both characters sounded completely different than they should have, and the intonations of the flirtatious scenes were totally off. She seems to be a straight woman who can't hear or reproduce a lesbian voice. I wonder how she would have read it if it had been a heterosexual relationship. I was very disappointed, and won't get another book narrated by the same person.

    I commute daily and don't go a day without listening to a book. I love audible for the plethora of titles they carry.

    "Worst narrator ever"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Story is fine - I read the book years ago. The narration was impossible to get past and I finally gave up before half way through the audio book.


    Would you recommend Turn Back Time to your friends? Why or why not?

    See above.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicole Vilencia’s performances?

    Sorry, no.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Narration by Abby Craden. Her narration of Too Close To Touch was wonderful.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Trauma Alert had a different narrator.

    "Truly good story"

    This is my favorite stand alone title by Radclyffe, by far. Nice sized canvas with a strong cast of characters and back story to unfold. Great build to romance, even if it is formulaic. Having just read one of the worst, most forced romance in Rad's portfolio, reading this one makes me wonder how they could be penned by the same author. There are smart details here that wrap you up in these characters and make you want the story to keep going.

    "Good story but"

    I liked the story a lot more than Trauma Alert which is kinda a sequel. The narrator was not that good. Made a lot of the dialog between Pearce and Winter cheesy. The story line wasn't as rushed as others she's written I would recommend but it's a 7 out of 10 for me

    "Better than I was expecting."

    This story was better than I was expecting, and although I wasn't too sure about the narrator at first, I keep coming back to listen to this story, and have found myself liking the job she has done more and more.
