Summary

Drew Clark, ex-Marine and martial arts master, is the new instructor at the Golden Tiger dojang. Intense and aloof, she hides dark secrets and unhealed wounds beneath her warrior's exterior. Sean Gray is the young psychologist and senior student who threatens to bring down the barriers Drew has erected around her heart. Battle hardened and world weary, Drew discovers that Sean wields a weapon she has no defense against - tenderness. Together, two women who have accepted loneliness as a way of life learn that love is worth fighting for - and a battle that neither can afford to lose.

Early Radclyffe

This is an early Radclyffe novel, which follows the f/f romance format. The story works, but it is not as engaging as her later work. There is a lot of head hoping (changing point of view) between characters that can happen between sentence. This can be a bit distracting at times. The majority of the story is based around a ex-Marine, now martial arts trainer, Drew, who falls for a psychologist Sean, who attends the class. Drew has a troubled past which prevents her wanting to be involved. While, Sean doesn't know she likes women. So they struggle to build their relationship. Many of the scenes is set around events in the martial arts class.

Natalie Duke's performance is very good and enjoyable, so it's worth listening to but I would suggest some of Radclyffe's other works first,

Awesome story that was narrated really well.

Absolutely love this story. It is exactly what you would expect from one of Radclyffe's books...an interesting and well written story, that has characters that you can't help but love. She also has a talent for keeping you hooked until the very last page, then wanting to know more, because you feel like you know these characters and you have come to care for them.

This Narrator (Natalie Duke) has very quickly become one of my favourites over the last few months. For me she gets everything right...the characters all have distinctive voices so you can tell them apart without the narrative. she is dead on with her tones and inflections. For me she is right up there with Abby Craden. Like Abby, she seems to know the characters, and gives them the voices that match their personality and the narrative written about them. For me this is important, as I hate when the narrator gives a really high and girly voice to a character, when the narrative says they have a deep & husky voice.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading or listening to lesfic.

Second time reading, so here's a new review

The first time i listened to this book honestly i wasn't impressed. The storyline for me was hard to follow with the narrator. So whats different now, I choose to listen to the words more carefully. Drew is ex military and has suffered great loss. Susan and Shawn are twins with hidden issues themself. the backgrounds of these ladies are not exposed right away, but are casually brought out in conversations. for some this would be frustration. However, i undersrand this is more about Drew and Shawn finding eachother dispite their past.
Susan's brief relaps is what finally pushes them together, and from their they can no longer hide their feelings
I really enjoyed this book this time around. I felt sad and heartbreak, I felt passion and chemistry between the two main characters as if i was right there witnessing them interact personally. This book was well written full of love.
So this is one of those, dont judge right away , truly take the time to listen this wonderful love story.

Not for me

This was hard for me to finish. The story was not interesting or engaging. The characters one dimensional. The narration was fine except for when Janet spoke, it was like introspective slow asian??? It was really annoying . I also did not care for the constant use of the "hearing the characters thoughts" just too much. Maybe I have reached my Radclyffe saturation limit!
