Publisher's Summary

When you spend your life battling death, who has time for love?

Dr. Ali Torveau knows just how fragile life can be - she sees death and tragedy every day in the trauma unit. Battling the dark forces of fate is her life's work and she doesn't want or need anything else, certainly nothing as transient as love. Plenty of women try to change her mind, but she never has any trouble saying no. Not until the day firefighter Beau Cross shows up in her ER and sets Ali’s carefully ordered world aflame.

I have Narrator Trauma

I don't know if I would have enjoyed this tale more of the serious Trauma doctor Ali ,battling her feelings for the hot and ripped firer fighter Beau, although not very hard if it wasn't was read by somebody who sounded like she was reading from a cook book her rhythm is of and with this kind of novel you need that ,granted this is not a a classic by any means but it didn't deserve this .It could have been so much better with a better narrator .

Definitely recommend this one!

Would you listen to Trauma Alert again? Why?

I would, and have! Like 5 times! I find that every time i have listened to it i get things out of it that I missed the previous times! Good story line. I would love to see this as a movie!

Which character – as performed by Nicole Vilencia – was your favorite?

Probably Dr. Torveau...

Any additional comments?

Aside from some unnecessary assertions by Beau Cross and her need to relieve her tension quite often, I enjoyed this book. It's easy to listen to. Good narration.

Radclyffe has done it again!

If you have a medical background and are a lesbian, you'll love Trauma Alert! Believe me, after reading this book, as well as her others that are based out of the Pa, you'll wish you could work in this hospital and become part of the family.

Narrator

The narrator was awful. Story was good and interesting. Prefer someone else reading it allowed. Hopefully there is a new narrator for future books.

A Sweaty, Breathless, Public Servant Sandwich

Radclyffe is a retired surgeon who's become a bestselling author in lesbian romance, mystery, and erotica. She specializes in medical romances and is a pro at whipping up love concoctions.

The story revolves around a senior resident doctor who gets swept off her feet by a butch firefighter with a saucy attitude. I imagine Trauma Alert might've been a juicy day dream back when Radclyffe was making her rounds.

Great book

Updated::: after listening to this book a few times. I found the narration to be better than my first read.
This last time I found myself more engaged, and really feeling a connection with each Character. even Wynter and her Wife which I read their own love story just the other day in Turn Back Time which was very good by the way..
I found the problems that came up to be believable and well handled ,light drama, with some areas in the dialog to be kinda cheesy. but hey I'm sure there's guys who actually talk like that.
The story itself was great the build up between Bo, and Allie was amazing . the story flowed really well and the ending was complete. I was very happy and even re-read it twice in a row.
It's a must read.

"Awesome Story"

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because it is a wonderful story and I think people would really enjoy it.

What about Nicole Vilencia’s performance did you like?

She did an awesome job with the voices of the characters. When switching from one character to another she did a good job making each voice unique.

Any additional comments?

Trauma Alert was a very good book to listen to it keep me interested throughout the book. It had moments when I was laughing out loud at work because the funny moments were funny. It had times when it keep me on my toes because when it happened it happened. I can't wait for the 2nd book to come out and I hope it does soon.

Better in Print

If you’re a Radclyffe regular, this par for the course. It’s not up there with Fated Love but it’s a solid read. Read being the operative word.

No disrespect to Nicole Vilencia, the narrator, but her performance definitely left a lot to be desired. I’ve no idea if a narrator’s performance is guided by a director so I don’t know where to lay blame - and someone should be blamed. Ms. Vilencia’s inflection and/or delivery oftentimes didn’t match the written descriptor or the tone of a line or passage. Additionally, there was very little differentiation between character voices. [Listen to the sample of And Playing the Roll of Herself narrated by Lisa Cordileone for an example of narration done right.]

I think I’ve said enough to get my point across. To say more would just turn this review into a rant.

narrator is really dry.

great characters. the nature of their individual struggles was interesting and entertaining. however, the narrator was really dry. her delivery of the intimate scenes was rather awkward. sounds like she's never had sex before. even things like Beau's pick up lines sounded weird.

Story was good, narrator was lacking

Book would be so much better with a difference narrator. Could barely make it all the way through to the end.

Follows on from 'Turn Back Time'

This story follows on in a small way to 'Turn Back Time' and although I enjoyed it I did pick up a couple of small continuity errors which did spoil it somewhat. To my mind if I picked up on them, then really the editor should have noticed as well. However, another good story overall from the author and well read by the narrator.

absolutely enchanting

If you could sum up Trauma Alert in three words, what would they be?

absolutely heart stopping

What other book might you compare Trauma Alert to, and why?

Heart Block...they both showed 2 females deeply in love but afraid to express it. in the end love did prevailed even though Heart Block was more touching than this.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

my favorite scene was when Ali went to the bar and saw the girl all over Beau and got jealous. it was really amazing how fast she gladly placed ownership on Beau.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

yes, when Beau told Ali that she was in love with her and Ali told her that she only wanted her for her body.
