Several reviewers have noted that this may be one of Radclyffe's best books. That is certainly my opinion. Radclyffe is at her best when writing characters who are responsible for the lives of others. In this book, they are both surgery residents, and I found their story compelling. I will be reading this one again.
I enjoyed reading this book. I must say I always enjoy reading Radclyffe’s work. She has a way to draw me into a story from the beginning. I love the way she always creates a slow build romance. For me she never rushes things and therefor makes the love story more realistic and special. She takes the time, so you can to get to know the characters, their feelings and emotions.After reading some of Radclyffe’s books you will notice that the medical world is a setting she uses in a lot of her books...
I’ve bought, and liked, nearly all of Radclyffe’s audiobooks. I’m not sure if it’s this book, the timing for me, or my disappointment with several of my recent books, but at this moment I feel that this is the best Radclyffe book I’ve experienced. I’m not really sure if I’ll re-listen to it, which is my normal criteria for 5*….but I’m rating “Turn Back Time” as 5* with no reservations.Wynter and Pearce are both sympathetic and likeable women. While much of the book is formulaic Radclyffe, it jus...
Not just a toaster oven, a chrome-plated toaster oven. I enjoyed listening to this Radclyffe classic. She took the time to develops solid leads in Wynter and Pearce and built a story with a lot of depth thanks to strong secondary characters and her vast knowledge of the inner workings of large hospitals. There were times when the telling of life as a resident overwhelmed the showing of a surgeon's life. Also Wynter was too good to be true. Almost a caricature of the clueless hetero woman discove...
A great medical romance book. Can’t stop reading. Starting is a bit slow but pace picked up soon after. Nonetheless, I enjoyed every scene/moments in the book. And I simply loved the scene at the concert, that one moment between Pearce and Wynter which kinda blew me away and put a smile on my face (not of her leaving the concert though).
I love the ebook and paperback so I tried the audiobook. God did Nicole Vilencia mess this one up. The voices were much to similar in sound, so I most of the time didn’t know who of the mc’s was talking. And the telling voice was also similar. The voice of Pearce was much to high. It should have been husky like the story said. So nope. Returned this audio and will stick to the ebook or paperback. The audio I give 2 stars.
“Turn Back Time” is my absolute favourite romance novel of all time, bar none! The love story between Pearce and Wynter is written in such a deeply personal manner, it resonates within my soul. It transcends love between two women. It’s a pure, unadulterated love story between two people. Period. The icing on the cake for me is that the story revolves around my favourite medical setting - in the ER and operating rooms - with surgical procedures, doctor's rounds, shifts, the canteen, the on-call
I LOVED it. It had all I look for in a romance novel: - characters I could fall in love with, beautifully flawed, smart and strong- a relationship that grows slowly, at a realistic pace, yet a love that is very true and unstoppable- believable, witty dialogues- nice supporting characters who are there for a purpose- incredibly arousing yet romantic sex scenes- enough angst, jealousy and pain that keep you interested- a happy endingMy favorite by Radclyffe so far!
A slow-paced story that starts with an intense vibe between the main characters but doesn't get to anything physical but has an emotional effect on both. Due to their professional lives they meet again and from that point the undeniable chemistry between them can't be ignored longer. The first chapters of the book focus more on their professional activities, giving a very realistic atmosphere to the story in general but with some subtle glimpses at the romance. I have to say that there comes a p...
Well, this was the last of the medical series I read & it very much reminded me of Fated Love in the plot. It was really interesting at first but then halfway through I wasn't as interested. Nevertheless great read!
Perfect pace, perfect timing, perfect chemistry. I loved Pearce, how hard she tries to put some distance, and if I have to find a “but” it would be how much time Ronnie spends at Ken and Mina’s (poor kid might not recognize her mother ;] ). Everything felt real, their attraction, their connection and their love. A great book indeed!
4.7 star ratingRadclyffe is very good with her medical romances but this somehow took my admiration of her work in this genre up a notch.This was bery enjoyable and i had to wonder if all the good love stories just have to have a shocking and depressing bypath... Is life really like that? 🤔
The story is interesting. Hospital surgical residents who meet up after some part apart only to see that they have a connection after all. It was slow to build up to Wynter and Pearce to develop their feelings or get to a point where there might be something between them. Okay to read.
English is not my first, so apologize in advance for any grammar error.This is the first book I read from the genre. My reaction is, wonderful couple.Sometimes it was hard to feeling the chemistry between the main character, because they usually just started to know each other. But Radclyffe said " No, you can feel it from the beginning.". Damn, the chemistry is undeniable and you found its hard to imagine any main character with other person because they really are felt match to each other. As
I really enjoy reading this author and the way she brings out the intense feelings of the characters. I am so interested in this one as it is about the way things happen in a hospital setting with so much realistic knowledge of medical situations and then how the characters actually feel deep inside themselves when they are in situations. I felt myself as in the situation with the characters and really drawn into the story and so many times I couldn't put the book down. I was so hooked. I know s...
Liked the first half quite a bit. Liked the second half less; spent it frowning due to a specific moment of biphobia.You know, I'd really start enjoying lesbian romances more if these lesbian characters in them stopped acting like sleeping with women who also enjoy sleeping with men was such a gross thing. It would also be pretty great is these lesbian characters stopped calling these women they perceive as bi "straight women".Can we also just have more bi characters in these lesbian romances?
First of all, the names (Pearce and Wynter) are pretty cool. Both of them are intense and care deeply for their work. There comes a time when you stop and take control of your life and live for yourself and not your parents. In addition to learning about medical terms and surgical procedures, I enjoyed the story of choices and decisions people make in their lives and most importantly, the why. I enjoyed the supportive friends and the little girl, they were both funny and really added to the stor...
This is the most I can give this book.Every book is the exact copy of the other, No family values no real dilemmas only a past experience with a lost love or broken heart and the characters don't want to fall in love again tell they meet that person who is the exact opposite of their type and after a few weeks they fell madly in bed and they can't live without each other.. I could say that the author lack imagination but the Honor Series is really good, I really don't know
I rather enjoyed this book. It is well written in typical Radclyffe style and holds enough suspense to have you not put the book down until you finished reading it. I found the characters realistic-in a romance novel kind of way of course-and their troubles and worries believable. If you are looking for the perfect read on a rainy Sunday afternoon, this is the book for you.
This book kept me reading from beginning to end. If it wasn't for my classes, I would have finished in a day.
Your typical lesbian novel...but fun anyway!
Another great medical drama/romance from Radclyffe!
3.5 really. This isn't one of my favourite Radclyffe reads so far. I'm not quite sure why. The only thing I can think of is for the situations the character faced there didn't seem to be quite enough conflict, either external or internal. The father didn't seem all that scary eventhough he had supposedly preplanned his daughter's life; Wynter's friends/family didn't seem all too bothered she'd suddenly fallen in love with a woman. I guess that's a good thing but it made the read slightly bland.
Overall a great entertaining book. But (unfortunately) as I've just finished the book I have a downside that got me sad and that is a real pity. If it had a little longer end or an epilogue I'd rate it five stars and that is a very rare thing. More times a book is unnecessarily stretched and it loses its value but It felt exactly the opposite in this case.But I know that Radclyffe is a great writer and I'm only at the beginning of reading all her books, so I believe she'll entertain me a lot mor...
WTF is up with all the sexual harassment and assault, with scenes (more than) bordering on non-consensual in this hospital? And the writing makes it out to be normal and okay. Normal because the victim of it is a sort of maybe womanizer until the story starts. And the only reason she's not okay with it is because it's not the type of "release" she wants (i.e. "making love" to the new doctor).I'm sorry but this is nowhere near sexy or okay.
Great storyline, focus is on character development, conflict resolution and blending of diverse people. The love story is really sweet and there are many romantic scenes that are the perfect balance between sensual and loving. As with most romance novels, the scenarios are hyper-realistic..... but that’s what makes us keep reading them right? There are a few scenes that seem a little forced but nothing that detracts from the fantasy too much. If you read this genre, I recommend this book.
Seemed more like a story about lust rather than love. The emotional connection just wasn't there. And the kid might've been edited out without losing anything, for such a central part of one of the main characters the kid was barely ever in a scene even though she is mentioned a lot. It was entertaining enough but I can't recommend it.
Not one of my favorites, and I can't really put my finger on why. Being her purview, perhaps the subject became a little rote after a while. I liked the love story between Wynter and Pearce, but the rest kind of just laid there. I loved her descriptions of the settings, as always, but the plot was lacking. oh well.
Awesome. I loved this book. The relationship between the two women was intense, loving and passionate. They were so good for each other and this became more evident as the story progressed. They seemed destined to be together. I couldn’t read the book fast enough to see how everything turned out. Definitely a must read!
I liked most of the book, so i guess my rating should stay at 3.5. I thought the end was rushed. I must say i was disappointed with that. Also, I think we didnt really get to know Pearce. A lot of questions about her remained unanswered. Same goes with her relationship with her father. I was hoping for more on this aspect.
