Publisher's Summary

Emmett McCabe never expected to see Sydney Stevens - a woman with whom she'd shared a brief, incendiary connection before it all went up in flames - again. Luckily, ascending the cutthroat ladder of a high-pressure surgery residency to reach the top spot makes it easy to ignore what's missing in her life. Then Sydney reappears after nearly five years. Emmett is barely over her shock when she discovers Sydney is her new competition for the coveted chief's position everyone, including Emmett, expects will be hers.

Professional rivalry and long-simmering passions create a combustible combination when the two are forced to work together, especially when past attractions won't stay buried.

Skip to Chapter 16

Struggled to finish this... 16 chapters in and there hasn't been any kind of... real connection between the two.. nothing.. not even about how they connected before I even started reading the book. Half the book (and I mean 5 goood looong hours) is based on one day.. intro day... in the hospital.... explanations about medical procedures ... atleast got the sense of how it really is in the or room.. but felt too much... every procedure explained which I felt removed the attention from how the two characters were supposed to develop post 1st meeting... The other half of the book feels rushed.. especially when Syd talking about her past experiences... felt lots of details that I was looking for in the first part of the book were all crammed in the last 4 or 5 chapters, leaving little time to merge it into the story.. feel like there is more to come.. I am a big fun of you Radclyffe but this was a miss. Cool that Honor and Quinn are back.. favourite couple from the medical romance series...

Boring

I'm disappointed with this book. Seems like someone could write it in a weekend for a quick buck. Sorry Radclyffe. I love so many of your books...not this one.

Not my fave Radclyffe..

Radclyffe is skilled at weaving the underlying romantic story in with whatever the plot is about of any given book. This time it’s VERY heavy on the medical aspects more than anything else. Endless descriptions of dramatic medical procedures take up a good 90% of the overall content. I enjoy when her stories are realistic but I found myself skipping forward past about the tenth emergency situation bc it was clear the next 15-20 mins would be that alone. Not that it wasn’t a decent book & Lori Prince delivered another great performance...but this just isn’t my fave Radclyffe book in general or even my fave in this series.

Best book yet!!!

I have listened to a lot of radclyffe books and this was my favorite. Great storyline, funny, and serious. Of course the narrator helps on any story and lori prince did an excellent job as usual.

Definitely Read This One

One of my favorite of Radclyffe's books, which is saying something, considering how many books she has written. Sid and Emmett have an amazing love story.

Excellent story b

Excellent story, but the reading really brought it to life! The first chapter was weird with some crazy intonations but the actress calmed down subsequently. She really lent a voice to every character in the story. Jerry, Danny, Zoe, Quinn, Honor, Emett and Sydney all sound like comletely distinct people. Amazing, I laughed out loud at some parts. Characters are central to this story and it is absolutely great, everyone are likeable. The medical side of things are not left either, I actually learned a lot of stuff and gained even more respecr for medical professionals. Story also didn't drag on, it ended at the perfect time. Every chapter was filled with stuff happening and I never felt bored. Compared ro Love's Melody Lost where the actress just yeeted the whole story in a monotone at 500 miles an hour this is night and day! Major props.

Always

The narrator started off a little rough, but I promise keep listening pst the first 15 minutes and you’ll be happily surprised with the results! I can admit to being a narration snob and Lori’s voice in the beginning had me nervous. To Lori - I’m sorry I ever doubted you! The narrator differentiated every character’s voice and nearly made me think there were multiple readers! Incredible job. Radclyffe - as ‘Always’ - I will never stop listening to your books. Please keep writing and we your fans will keep supporting that effort! You’ve helped me believe in the possibility of love again. Thank you.

Another winner

I love Radclyffe's books and I especially like coming back to previous characters. It's like catching up with old friends. Thank you.
