Summary

Wilkins, a conservative soldier, gets the shock of her life upon her first meeting with Johnson, an overly liberal journalist from San Antonio. Johnson is blunt, loud, and kind of cute but nevertheless, the exact opposite of quiet, rule-bound Wilkins. Johnson, who happens to be best friends with Wilkins' superior, Tech Sergeant Ian Morris, ends up falling head over heels for the modest sergeant, and upon learning the nature of Johnson's feelings, Wilkins tries her best to avoid the extraverted woman, knowing that if she gives in to the promised affection, her job title and reputation will be compromised. However, when Johnson is assigned to do an undercover story about life as an Air Force trainee and is asked to reside in the dormitories as a trainee, all chaos breaks loose. Wilkins ends up having to choose between love and her responsibility as a soldier, knowing that her choice may have a lasting effect on the rest of her life.

Great story to start a series

Story & character development is good. Narration is done well & consistent. This would make a nice series to listen to repeatedly.

Great story until the end.

This was a great story and I could not believe the end. Why? Why end a good love story so violently?

This is a F/F story. This book was a ying and yang story. I loved the characters and the storyline. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Got this for free

Hated the narrator which means I couldn’t get into the book. I never finished it due to the narrator. She had no emotions and all she did was read. I look for acting which is so important since we don’t have faces to go by. Get a better narrator please.

Was a good read

Like this story and the narration was pretty good. Lots of intrigue and mystery that gets partially resolved. Need to find the next one though cause it ends on one hell of a cliffhanger.

Amazing Lesbian Romance

I am starved for good lesbian books this filled the gap so well. I love when lesbian stories discuss the pressures that come with being a women who has romantic feelings for other women. I rated the narration lower because it was hard to differentiate between the two main female characters at times. Would have worked a little better with two female narrators instead of one.

Romance with potential

This story is quite short. It was a fun listen with interesting characters and an intriguing plot idea. Two women with entirely different views and beliefs coming together and learning to understand each others point of view.
I enjoyed the characters and the premise of how they meet and how they were forced together. I felt there were some inconsistencies with their relationship like there were missing scenes or interactions that made it feel a bit jumbled. I felt that sometimes the emotional connections were so well done at some points and then confusingly lacking at others.
I really liked the plot idea but certain plot points were never properly utilized and it made it sometimes confusing.
The main Lillian’s reveal and aftermath felt emotionless and fell flat for me.
This narration had a bit of an echo and there were some parts that were read to quickly or pauses were missing. But she had a nice voice that was easy to listen to.
I enjoyed this story even with its flaws and feel like there is a lot of potential.

Great quick read

The story was entertaining. It is about two women who meet at a dinner one evening then soon are put in “ commander-trainee” roles. The story was fast paced with a few things that were somewhat unbelievable, and the ending was a little rushed. The narrator was ok but all the characters sound the same so you had to listen very closely to understand who was speaking. It’s a fun short story and I recommend it if you are looking for a quick read.
