Entrepreneur and innovator Kadrienne Davenport gets results. A demanding executive and stickler for punctuality, Kade throws herself into work to avoid hurting anyone, convinced she only causes pain to those she loves. When Jennifer Spencer meets an incognito Kade at a conference, sparks fly. But when Kade unexpectedly becomes her boss, Jen's problems multiply. The company she founded is going broke, her grandmother's dementia is worsening, and her attraction to Kade -- her difficult, brilliant, charismatic mentor -- is growing.

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.

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.

Captain Sabine Fleischer is a skilled and dedicated US Army surgeon deployed to a combat hospital in Afghanistan. She is also one of the thousands of troops who are forced to serve in silence because of the military's anti-gay policy of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT)". Usually driven and focused, Sabine finds that battles raging both inside and outside are making it more and more difficult for her to deal with her emotions. Dealing with loss and mortality, lack of privacy, sleep deprivation, loneliness, and the isolation forced on her by Don't Ask, Don't Tell are all taking their toll.

I have a new favourite author. I have listened to this book several times and each time I hear something described that I missed the previous time. So worth buying as the story has so many layers. The story line is so much more than a Lesbian love story.

After nearly a decade as a professional drummer, Diana Petrell leaves her rock-star life behind to continue her residency in emergency medicine. She's determined not to let anything stop her - not even falling in love with her aloof mentor, Dr. Emily Barnes. Emily has only ever focused on her career as a senior attending in the emergency department, and she isn't happy about having to babysit a resident with a 10-year gap in her resume, no matter how intriguing she is. But every time they work together, it's not just their patients' heartbeat that gets a little irregular.

The story is slow to get going and I did not warm to Emily at first. But but the third chapter I started to love the book. I must admit I skipped over the first two chapters as I did not get the characters. But once I got into it I had to go back to the beginning to pick up on the bits I had missed. A lovely book to listen to.
