A beautiful love story

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

I recommend that they listen to the preview to find if they can "get along" with the narriator for sure. The story is wonderful though, I would definately recommend to read it in some form, whether audio, print or e-reader. If you like lesbian fiction, this is a must read.

What other book might you compare Fated Love to, and why?

Many of Radclyffe's other titles. This is a romance with a medical setting.... of the ones I've read I'd say most like Crossroads. I have read most of Radclyffes work, and I think this is one of her best. I really enjoyed it.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Abby Craden?

I found Abby Craden to be an irritating narrator, she has this habbit of leaning on the last syllable in every sentance. She also reads the entire book in this suductive voice which kind of cheapens it.

I haven't listened to many audiobooks with narrators that might be suitible for this kind of book. I listened to Oath of Honor though, and I thought Betsy Zajko did a good job with that, so I'll have to go with Betsy Zajko.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Errrrm. I have no idea. Advertising is really not my bag.

Any additional comments?

I don't usually leave written reviews, I know that I am no good at it. I usually just leave a star rating but I felt the need to in this case as I thought the only other review that has been left was completely unfair (not to mention insulting to both the author and the readers!). While it is true that there are several erotic scenes, this is far more than a simple girl meets girl & falls into bed kind of a book.

Honor and Quinn are well developed and multifacated, realistic, and extremely likeable characters. Honor's wife Terry was tragicly killed in an accident several years before leaving her to bring up their child with the support of her mother-in-law. I thought the issue of Terry's death was handled with sensitivity and compassion from all perspectives. Quinn has troubles of her own which has led her away from the career she trained for and causes some problems both professionally and personally for the both of them. Without wanting to give too much away Honor finds the strength to allow herself to love again and Quinn not only falls in love with Honor, but also grows to love Honor's daughter & finds a place for herself in their family.

Dire lesbian soft porn

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Mills & Boon readers with sapphic curiosity

What was most disappointing about Radclyffe’s story?

Insipid characters, weak plot, shameless overuse of the word 'throat' and derivatives thereof.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Abby Craden?

A story about strong, independent, professional gay women deserves a stronger, commanding voice, not soft porn husky and voyeuristic

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fated Love?

All of it

Good story, irritating narrator

I enjoyed the story. if it wasn't for the narrators voice, which I found annoying, I would have enjoyed it a lot more.
