Publisher's Summary

In Beyond the Breakwater, the sequel to Safe Harbor, Sheriff Reese Conlon and Doctor Tory King face the challenges of personal change as they define their lives and future together. Dr. Tory King’s pregnancy forces her to examine her personal needs and goals while her partner, Sheriff Reese Conlon, struggles with her escalating anxieties over conditions she cannot control. Twenty-year-old Brianna Parker makes a sacrifice for love that threatens not just her happiness, but her life, when she returns home as the newest member of the Sheriff's department. A life-threatening accident, a suspicious fire, and the appearance of more than one woman vying for Bri’s attentions makes one Provincetown summer a time of transformation as each woman learns the true meaning of love, friendship, and family.

Better second time around

So I was a little harsh with the first book so I must redeem my self and say that I enjoyed this one much more and will continue to read the next one in the series ,I still don't love the overly breathy narrator but I got over her and was lost in the lives of the strong doctor and sexy sheriff , every available lull in this story is filled with sex so if that bothers you this is not for you ,but I have a feeling if your a Radclyffe fan it wont.
Good drama and Radcliffe seance of humor is alive and well ,I'm falling for these characters and I'm looking forward to seeing where the their all heading .

As Good As The First

Where does Beyond the Breakwater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right at the top. The first book in the series, Safe Harbor was good and so I wasn't expecting the second to be as good but I'm happy to say that I was wrong.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond the Breakwater?

When Carr saw Bri dancing with Allie. I thought that Nicol Zanzarella captured the emotions of Bri and Caroline wonderfully.

What about Nicol Zanzarella’s performance did you like?

Without a doubt, Allie Tremont. I love the southern accent.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. It was just a very good story that was well told.

Any additional comments?

This is the second of the Provincetown tales where Reese and Tory are trying to start a family while Reese is trying to catch an arsonist. We're introduced to Allie Tremont. A sexy and alluring cadet that has her sights set on Bri. Once again the narration is top notch and the sex was hot as ever. I fell in love with Allie and loved the way that Nicol Zanzarella captured her southern accent and personality. A great read as well as a great audio. Highly recommended.

Beyond the Breakwater

I finished listening to Safe Harbor and immediately started this sequel. It was a good way to do it as one book blended into the next. I became totally immersed into the world of Tori, Reece , Bri and Caroline. The pace of the story was excellent and even though I knew all was going to end well, after all it is a romance, the style of writing and the narration carried me along on a roll a coaster. Radclyffe has become of my go to authors. Looking forward to the next book.

Great series on serving and protecting.

Deputy Sheriff and Doctor are the towns favorite couple. Their future child is the center of their world and keeping Tory and the baby safe are Reese’s mission in life. Brianna Parker, cadet and Sheriffs daughter, is assigned on her final training assignment. Her world revolves around her job and saving her relationship with her girlfriend. Now there are all on alert while searching for an arsonest who is targeting the area. Great performance.

I gotta say this series really had me on the edge of my seat. I immediately started this one after listening to the first one and I was so happy how the story progressed and enjoyed the angst and intense moments. usually I'm turned off by to much sex but my god did this book get me going!

Obsessed

I can't get enough of this series. I've read literally hundreds of books in the audible escapes package but none have been this romantic, steamy and engaging. truly worth a read!

Beyond the Breakwater

I enjoyed the story and the narrator did a good job of representing the different characters (there was more than one Maine accent this time around), but I'm not sure I'll continue listening to the series. This is no fault of the author, but angsty butches cause me awful flashbacks. Radclyffe is an excellent writer, and I recommend her books to any fan of lesfic.

Story could covered a lot of old ground

The novel is the second in a series which involved a police office Reese , and a doctor Tory. It also includes the young couple Brianna and Carolyne. It follows on from the first nove with Reese and Troy planning for a baby, while Brianna and Carolyne go with a difficult patch with conflicts between each others long term happiness. I enjoyed the story and the different dramatic events but I found it hard to get emotionally connected with the story as it did not introduce any new relationships or main characters. It does however follow on from the first and provides a nice conformable read in the quaint but 'dangerous' Provincetown. if you liked the first and enjoyed the characters, and want to read happens next in their lives, then you will enjoy the novel.

If I have to hear the word "murmured" one more tim

Oh dear god. Please get a synonym dictionary and find an alternative to the word "murmured". I wanted to scream every time it was read out, and I think I did a few times. It ruined the book for me, which is basically lesbian housewife porn at the best of times. I think the author used the word on every page. Why didn't they speak, whisper or converse??? Why only murmuring? worst. The reader is good though.

Worth a listen

This is even better than the first book and I love this series. The narrator takes a bit to get used to but she grows on you.
