Badly wounded in Afghanistan when the helicopter she is piloting goes down under enemy fire, Captain Quinn Briscoe is struggling to rebuild her life. Facing not only a disfiguring injury, but a medical discharge and the end of a serious relationship, Quinn increasingly shuts herself - and her heart - off from the rest of the world. Her first meeting with lovely, self-confident and successful business owner Alison Jenkins is disastrous, and Quinn feels an instant antipathy for the woman, along with an undeniable attraction.
Trying to get along for the sake of her sister Rebekah, who's gone to work for Allie, Quinn offers to fly the attractive boutique owner to a family wedding. However, what should have been a quick one day trip to the mountains of North Carolina suddenly turns into a long weekend at a romantic lodge. When a series of circumstances makes it increasingly clear that Quinn won't be able to deny the growing passion between them much longer, will she be able to put the scars of the past aside to build a relationship with Allie worth fighting for?

This story has some good lines, quite humourous, could have done more of that and less of chapter 18, we don't need a really long description of a kiss! It's like how to kuss 101...more engagement and depth to the story would've been better. Likeable characters, but that's about it really. If I were the editor of that book I would've sent it back to the author with remarks-less filler, more story expansion. Narrator did her best. If you want a light quick read, skip a few predictable chapters, this book fills that slot.
"A Simple but Nice Story"
So narrator was okay. I felt when she was speaking as a character she was pretty good but when just narrating she was a bit monotone and a bit nonchalant. I liked the book because it was simple and sweet read and the Audio is decent enough. I don't regret getting it.
"Listenable Again and Again"
This short novel, super novella is in my top ten list in the lesbian fiction genre. The two major protagonists are both very likable, although Quinn pushes that factor pretty hard in their second meeting before redeeming herself in their third. Allie's cousin and business partner Amanda is a forgettable character but Quinn's sister Rebecca is good and Allie's Aunt Marge is a hoot. It was particularly funny when she asked Quinn if she and Allie lesbianed together. In my opinion this one is a can't miss listening experience, enjoy.
The humor of all the characters.
Too short which I think made it feel a little rushed at times.
Yes. Liked all of the ones I have read.
Love and humor. What more could you ask for.
"pretty good listen"
I enjoyed it. I was doing my puzzle while listening to the audio. It was cute; that's the word I would use to describe the book.
"Loved this Lebanese Love Story"
Another jewel from the mind of LB -- great story -- rememberable characters! So in depth into the mind of a military soldier who finally finding love in the strangest places! Great great great -- ready for the sequel Ms Bruce! Write another Lebanese story!! Lol
