In this case it has been like that, although the story is interesting, the characters are attractive and the situations described in the book keep you hooked from the beginning. The two protagonists are Sabine, a medical Captain stationed in a base in Afghanistan, with a great loyalty to the army due to family tradition and debts contracted with the army to pay for her studies, and Colonel Rebecca Keane, who has always exercised as a doctor in the army and who is stationed in the same Afghanistan base as Sabine.
Rebecca is Sabine's superior and that makes it even more difficult for any type of relationship that they could possibily initiate. It has also happened to me after finish reading it, that I need to know what happens after the decisions made at the end by the two protagonists. So I expect a continuation, and hope it will bee sooner than latter, please. So if you are looking for a book with action, romance, good characters and attractive situations, this book will not disappoint you. View 2 comments. Almost everyone either: z. Noyes, a freaking genius.
I have the e-book in my phone and Vader Jr for months but too chicken to read about the conflicts, the Fucked Up DADT, to share the burden carried by Sabine, to feel the hurt of not being able to touch the woman who owns my heart and soul especially when she's right in front of me and to pursue a relationship with her in public.

Ask, Tell is about a lesbian surgeon's experience in Afghanistan in a combat hospital, in the dark days of "don't ask, don't tell", as she balances duty, friendships and forbidden love in a stifling and hostile environment. It's a very authentic portrayal that's rich in details, raw emotions and the visceral horrors of war.
I don't mean the sex, because th Ask, Tell is about a lesbian surgeon's experience in Afghanistan in a combat hospital, in the dark days of "don't ask, don't tell", as she balances duty, friendships and forbidden love in a stifling and hostile environment.
I don't mean the sex, because those were some of the hottest ever written! I meant the two women's scenes were few and far between--and these two sizzled everytime they as much as lock eyes at each other. Falling for the boss. Or the subordinate, and a same-sex one at that, can pretty much guarantee at least a dishonorable discharge in the military. I was expecting perhaps more fireworks, more troubles and hence, more angst, along these lines.
But these two ladies are the epitome of professionalism at work, so it was all just view spoiler [worries, worries and more worries. The book starts and proceeds at a very deliberate pace, and then rushes to end it. Did the author run up against some publisher page limit? While the first person POV gave us amazing insight into the main character, it also limited our understanding and appreciation of her lover, who, being the higher ranked officer of the two, had far more to lose than the MC.
For someone who's career military, and with her professional experience, confidence, and cachet, she seemed a little too well adjusted at the end to her view spoiler [instant retirement and domesticity.

When you see a book get rave reviews, over an over again, you rush to read it right. Shoulda, coulda, woulda! I have had this book on my list of to-reads for months now, why the delay, I am not sure, but I am so glad I finally read this one. It was an amazing way to get started. Captain Sabine Fleischer is an Army surgeon currently deployed in Afghanistan. Her days are filled desperately trying to save the wounded men and women that are serving in the war.
When we meet Sabine she is struggl When you see a book get rave reviews, over an over again, you rush to read it right. When we meet Sabine she is struggling to fight her crush on her superior as well as navigate a nine-year relationship that is sinking fast. Her longtime partner is tired of military life. Vic, her girlfriend, was never a being a fan of the Army and the years of separation have created a crater that cannot be fixed. Sabine is trying to get through this deployment and navigate her life back in the States.
No easy feat, and it's all begging to crumble around her.
Colonel Rebecca Keane is Sabine's superior as well as the object of her massive crush. She's a gifted surgeon who is rock solid under pressure, respected by her peers and all around a good person. Sabine is drawn to Rebecca even though she knows there is no way they can ever be together. Everything is against them especially her relationship status and military policies. I won't ruin the story for you, just know that Sabine and Rebecca have a magnetic chemistry together, and love always conquers all. Reading this book, you feel the horrors of war, the pain of a breakup and the utter despair our service members must have felt serving in the military under DADT.

This book was amazingly well written, I cannot say that enough! EJ Noyles transported me to the medical camp and put me right there with the main characters. The story is heart-breaking, romantic, sexy as hell and shows the resilience of the human spirit. It's hard to believe that DADT only ended in Thank goodness it did! A great read well worth your time. View all 6 comments.

The best book I've read this year so far, it's what us British call the dogs bollocks! View all 9 comments. And a first time author at that. This story is written in the first person - in Sabine's headspace. I haven't read many first person books - I'm not sure if it's because it's hard to do well or if it's just plain hard to do. Nevertheless, Noyes does it well and overall I liked it. Noyes really captures how I imagine it would be at a mo 4. Also helps is that you Or rather, I love Sabine and are pulling for her. There is also well written and rounded out, side characters - from her Commanding officer, Col Rebecca Keene who Sabine has a massive crush on, to her BFF, Mitch who essentially was "adopted" by Sabine's family, to her tent mate Amy who leaves candies in Sabine's pockets and to her sister back home.
Then there is the romance. I wasn't planning on reading this book because the description implies infidelity which I generally avoid. Thankfully I was assured it wouldn't be a problem and it wasn't. Noyes does a good job navigating the difficulties of DADT and a believable romance. You can feel the chemistry and tension between them. This is a definite re-read for me and a good chance it will be in my top 10 this year. I'll be watching for Noyes next book.

Everything about this book is superbly well done. All of the characters are great, the military life is accurate, the chemistry between Sabine and Rebecca is excellent, dialogue is perfect, pacing is just right Despite any intensity this book has, there is a light-hearted quality laced throughout it, too, due to the humorous banter between the deep friendships and j Everything about this book is superbly well done. Despite any intensity this book has, there is a light-hearted quality laced throughout it, too, due to the humorous banter between the deep friendships and jokes used to diffuse the tension and tragedy of situations.
Because of that, I wouldn't consider this a heavy read though the subject matter is serious. I'm especially impressed with not only the rich depiction of military life in Afghanistan but that, even as an American that remembers when Don't Ask, Don't Tell came into being, it brought the circumstances of such a situation to light.
Really enjoyable read, overall. View all 5 comments. Feb 15, Agirlcandream rated it it was amazing Shelves: 1st-person , military , medical , all-time-favourites. Loved this book the second time through as much as I did the first. First person is my least favourite point of view but seeing and feeling the events and emotions Sabine experiences makes the reader feel like they are right there, boots on the ground in a war zone.
Don't ask, don't tell
You can't help but admire her self effacing wit and her solid friendship with Mitch as they deal with DADT, knowing one wrong glance or hint of impropriety can end their careers in the military. The action scenes are screenplay realistic and the operating room scenes are suitibly graphic. Both lend an authentic feel to this well paced novel. Romance in a DADT military is challenging and frustrating and adds a whole new meaning to the term slow burn.
I loved it. One of the best books I've read this year and penned by a debut author. Thanks Lex and Netty for your positive reviews. I may have overlooked this Bella author and novel had it not been for your reviews. Plot was well paced and many issues were laid out; infidelity, PTSD, same-sex relationship within the military.
May 28, Katie Dingo rated it it was amazing Shelves: lesbian-romances , lesbian-fiction. Dealing with the daily trauma that comes through her operating theatre, Sabine is clever, quick and funny.
Disappointment for advocates
On her second rotation, she's an old hand, knows the game and plays it well. Her best friend Mitch is also a surgeon in the same unit. Everyone suspects they're a pair, not knowing that it's safer for them to see that, as both Mitch and Sabine are homosexual. Set during the time of 4. Their boss is the enigmatic, and meticulous, surgeon Colonel Rebecca Keane. She runs the surgical unit with precision expected from a career soldier. However, subtle cracks in the facade start showing when Sabine is around.
The constant separation from her long-term partner back home is causing difficulties, and Sabine knows that their relationship is suffering and isn't sure it can be saved. So when she starts to suspect that her crush on Rebecca is reciprocated, things start heating up. However the war, and the Army, is going to get in the way. This was a cleverly written work. Noyes has managed to describe life in a surgical unit in a combat zone well, without it being too traumatising to the audience.
She's also grappled with the difficulties of living with the DADT policy, without it crushing the story. What was so unexpected was that it is written in the first person.
