Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Jae’s newest lesbian novel is a medical romance with a few unexpected turns.

Dr. Hope Finlay loves her job as an emergency room physician, especially since it allows her only brief encounters with her patients. She learned early in life not to get attached to anyone because it never lasts.

Laleh Samadi, a waitress at her aunt’s restaurant, is the exact opposite. She easily connects with people and loves her big, boisterous Persian family, despite their tendency to meddle in her life.

When Laleh needs to be rushed to the ER with heart trouble, Hope saves her life. Afterwards, strange things begin to occur: Why does Laleh suddenly know even the most obscure diseases, while Hope is fluent in Farsi?

Soon, they can no longer deny that there’s a mysterious connection between them - one that becomes stronger with each passing day.

Are they losing their minds...or their hearts?

Loved this book

I've read every book that jae has written and this is my favorite. I love the way she weaves together the best of the Persian culture with that of the American culture. A very good read.

What a great surprise!!

Jae did not disappoint! At first I wasn’t sure about this book. But the story had me after the first 5 mins! Again, the narrator absolutely is not my favorite. I’ve bought several of Jae’s books and was willing to move forward. She was a bit better than last time but her inflections are just plain off. Sometimes I couldn’t tell who was speaking. If it weren’t for Jae’s amazing writing, this story would have been a wash for me. Thanks Jae for writing another good one!!!

Not the right narrator

She's not a bad narrator, nothing like the folks who make you turn off the book and return it within 10 minutes of starting it. Her style, however, is far more fitting for children's novels. It was hard to get past this to understand how good the book was, or wasn't. I think it's not up to Jae's usual standards, offhand, though still entertaining and not poorly written.

Great book!

I absolutely loved this book. The ending was a little dry for me. It felt like it needed a little bit more. The only reason it didn’t get 5 stars for the performance is because of the way the narrators voice was a little too drawn out on some of Hope’s words. It bugged me for some reason “. Over all I would say a 4.9 over all!

Sparks can happen with a Heartbeat

Just loved the characters and cultural aspect of this book. Right from the start you can't help but fight for the right ones to get together.

Best Lesbian Romance Ever

Out or a hundred lesbian romance novels I have listened to on Audible this is the one I cherish the most and the one I most clearly associate with. This beautiful story is how we wish our own love life was. It pained me at times when I wish I was one of the characters and my BFF was the other. I am in love with her and she has difficulty even expressing simple emotions. This will be an Audible book I never let go. Thank you Jae and Abigail.

Truly enjoyable story

I found this book to be an entertaining story, i enjoyed the paranormal aspect of it. I did feel the part where the two MC's connection was abruptly severed, without a good explanation was very confusing and left me saying "what just happened here? I was really in to the story line up until that point, it took me a few to get back on on track to where the Author wanted to take me with the whole concept of their relationship. Now im not saying anything bad mind you, i just think some plots need to be explained, but then again the paranormal is a whole lot of unexplained events. This book is such a cute love story with a great coming aspect as well. if you love slow burns with a little bit of paranormal in the mix, then this book is for you.

Enjoyed the story..another wonderful Jae book

I enjoyed this book due to the story..not the narrator. The voice she used for the character of the doctor was all wrong in my opinion. I enjoyed the connection the woman had and how they came together. A very good read.

Narration

The story is great. Too bad the narrator let down the author. If the story wasn’t so good I would of opted out and found a new book to listen too. Narration was monotone, no feeling. Struggled to figure out who was who when she attempted to portray each character
