Publisher's Summary

What do you do when the source of all your problems is the one thing you don't know how to fix?   

With Don't Ask, Don't Tell nothing more than an unpleasant memory, US Army surgeon Sabine Fleischer is ready to move on with her life - if she can just figure out how to move past her PTSD. Fresh from her first deployment since surviving a vehicle attack in Afghanistan, Sabine is finding the things she's tried so hard to push aside aren't as easy to ignore as she'd hoped.   

Sabine's girlfriend and ex-commanding officer Rebecca Keane is happily settled into her new job running a trauma department in a civilian hospital. Life with Sabine is everything Rebecca ever wanted. But when Sabine's PTSD reappears worse than before, she's left struggling with her own guilt.   

There's no doubt that both Sabine and Rebecca want the same thing. But how do you help the most important person in your life when they don't want to need your help?

A must listen!

This is the follow up to Ask Tell, which I thought could not be topped. So I waited a while before diving in. Oh my, was I wrong. Book 2 is even better!
The perspective alternates between Sabine and Rebecca which adds a whole new dimension to the story. Sabine's struggle with the effects of PTSD and the reactions of those close to her, are so well portrayed. At times I would get so frustrated with her and Rebecca's miscommunication, but that was entirely due to becoming so emotionally invested in the events and characters. And just when I thought it was going to descend into cliché or sentimentality, the story would take an unexpected turn, or a deeper level of understanding would be reached.
I cannot say enough about the narration. Abby Craden seems to have truly grasped every nuance in the text. She gives each character a distinctive voice and infuses the audiobook with something special.
If you enjoyed the first book, this is a no brainer. If you haven't read/listened to it yet, what a treat you have in store.

Excellent!

Great story! Excellent narration by Abby Craden! This isn't simply a lesbian romance novel. This is the story of partners struggling with PTSD. Highly recommend!

Phenomenal

This is one of the best book series I've ever read. Everything about it was utterly amazing. The plot. The characters. Everything. There was nothing about this series that I did not enjoy. And Abby Craden had quickly become my favorite narrator of all time. She narrates these characters with such emotion that there were more than a few times when one of the characters was in tears and her portrayal of it alone had me in tears as well. I highly recommend this series and this narrator.

Great Story!

Having read Ask, Tell the characters, Sabine, Rebecca, Jana, Mitch and the rest of the gang were familiar and like visiting friends. This story delves Into PTSD and how it affects the one experiencing it, as well as all those close to him or her. EJ Noyes has weaved an intense story about the struggles of PTSD illustrating the pain, confusion and despair felt by Sabine. Abby Craden, as ever, gives a stellar performance, which breathes life into these characters. Bravo!

You need this book in your life

This book was OMG awesome. It was so powerful once it got going I had to take it slow so I could absorb everything that was happening this story hits close to home for me and anyone that deals with a high level of anxiety. Noyes did an awesome job writing these characters and I can only hope that they continue to talk to her so she can continue there story.

PTSD 101 - yay abby and EJ.

My Blurb about this book was Sabine has PTSD, Rebecca and Sabine are reuniting after her 10 month deployment in Afganistan. The relationship has some internal flaws for each of them regarding the PTSD and reuniting. It is a very clear emotional upheaval and it progresses to a breaking point. Very well thought out. PTSD sucks.

Characters....were realistic and likable and were exactly like what I read in book 1. That takes some writing skills. Sometimes the author writes a characters disposition differently in followup books. Sabine was the same in so many intense moments and ABBY CRADEN portrayed her EXACTLY like the original book. They must have recorded these together??
Anyway characters Sabine, Rebecca, Jana, and Mitch were so recognizable and gloriously the same from the first book. I'm pretty sure EJ Noyes is writing a book about Jana since she developed that smart-ass extremely engaging super sister so well.
Mitch and his southern drawl was great Abby.

Plot...I felt it was a great read and really had wonderful PTSD moments and things were written in the right order but it was super depressing. I guess the author did her job. Still, I just loved scenes like the homeless vet, and the moment with the champagne cork and the cat, but to read/listen to all that overwhelming depression and anxiety and self loathing, was really hard. It was spot on for the topic. And it was really written well. But hard.

Performance was excellent and downright amazing, actually. Voices were thrown around like candy. It was really well read.

4 out of 5 overall. Loved the entertainment EJ. I'll read the next one.
Thanks.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

This performance of an excellent book is incredible. I was totally immersed in the story. Abby Craden’s skilful switching of the two main character’s narration for each chapter, conveying their differing perspectives and inner turmoil, was perfectly captured. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Amazing.

A love story, a lesson in life

I do not know where to start with AMA. It has so many layers, a beautiful love story entwined with a serious condition that kills people and has the potential to destroy families. I would not call this a light romantic story. It’s a story about unconditional love, scars and all. This story is raw and unapologetic in its storyline. This is a love story and so much more.

More, more, more!!!

E.J. Noyes has nailed it yet again. I couldn't agree more with one of the other reviewers of this book; so many layers, a beautiful love story entwined within a serious topic. This is a story about unconditional love, scars and all and is wonderful because of it. I enjoyed the novel immensely when it was first released and now even more as an audio book. Fabulous work again by Abby Craden, who always seems to get it right. Please can we have more of these characters and their story.
