Kurzbeschreibung

Dr. Kimberly Donovan’s life is in shambles. After her medical ethics are questioned, first her family, then her closeted lover, the Chief of the ER, betray her. Determined to make a fresh start, she flees to California and L.A. Metropolitan Hospital.

Dr. Jess McKenna, L.A. Metro’s Chief of the ER, gives new meaning to the phrase emotionally guarded, but she has her reasons.

When Kim and Jess meet, the attraction is immediate. Emotions Jess has tried to repress for years surface. But her interest in Kim also stirs dark memories. They settle for friendship, determined not to repeat past mistakes, but secretly they both wish things could be different.

Will the demons from Jess’s past destroy their future before it can even get started? Or will L.A. Metro be a place to not only heal the sick, but to mend wounded hearts?

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fine romance.... 10. November 2011
Von Astrid TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Several months ago I read the fan fiction version of this story online and was sorry to see it withdrawn from the web due to publishing. Some weeks ago I had the opportunity to read the published book, called "L.A. Metro". And honestly, I really, really like what R.J. Nolan did with this story. She worked hard on improving an already nice to read story to a really good and more than pleasant read. My only complaint is that the story is too short *g*

I really appreciate that Kim and Jess are grown-up women who fall in love. Both of them had hard times in their lives and find it hard to trust. But they are willing to work on these problems. Both are very likeable and human characters with strength and weaknesses.

The plot is good, the character building well done and overall this is a really good romance. I hand out four stars to this story and would love to see more books from R.J. Nolan. Well done.

Format:Kindle Edition
Dr. Kimberly Donovan is a thirty-something psychatrist – and she's ready to start over as far away from her ex-lover as possible. After being involved in a debate about her ethics, her lover, the ER Chief of Memorial Hospital where Kim worked at, leaves her and even denies their relationship. She ends up in L.A. Metropolitan Hospital, more than ready to move on, professionally as well as personally.

On her first day at work she learns, that her new job entails being the ER psych consult – a job no one in her department seems to want. Chief of the ER is Dr. Jess McKenna. She is known throughout the hospital as
controlled, cold and unreachable. Not the best start for Kim on the new job it seems but when she meets Jess, she's attracted to her right from the start. Wary because of her instant attration and quite sure that she's not
interested in yet another affair with an ER Chief, she focuses on finding her place in her new department and getting on good working grounds with Dr. McKenna.

Jess feels equally attracted to the new doctor in the psych department, however, she's been burned with an inter-office relationship as well and has been the focus of gossip ever since.

Both women decide to keep their professional distance and focus on work instead. Along the way they become close friends who admire each other for being really good medical professionals – and both can't help slowly falling in love with the other.

L.A. Metro is a really entertaining read that I'd like to recommend to anyone who's interested in reading about grown-up women with pasts and a professional life that's important to them. I really cared about both characters
and liked their way of interaction. These women know what they want and have been burned for it in the past.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Story ist wirklich schön, und ob wohl ich nicht wirklich gut in Englisch bin hab ich fast alles verstanden, die medizinischen fach begriffe nicht aber die hätte ich wahrscheinlich auch auf deutsch nicht verstanden. Ich kann das Buch nur empfehlen, lässt sich leicht lesen und die spannung steigt mit jeder Seite.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Entschuldigung... Handlung? 12. August 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich bin langsam dabei aufzugeben, einen ansprechenden, spannenden Roman zu finden, der entweder im Haupt- oder einen guten Nebenplot ein paar lesbische Frauen aufweist...

Die Idee von L.A. Metro gefällt mir. Der Anfang ist auch ganz okay, aber irgendwann weiß man, wer wen will und warum und warum sie sich erstmal nicht kriegen. Bis es dann doch schnell geht und sich die letzten 20-30% des Romans mit konstruierten Problemen und gegeseitigem Anschmachten ergehen. Ich finde die Charaktere zu blass und die Handlung zu flach. Die Konflikte sind sehr schwach und werden für meinen Geschmack nicht genug hergeleitet und gelöst. Es ist zu einfach für den jeweiligen "Gegenpart" den Konflikt zu knacken... (Ist nicht am Ende guter Sex die Lösung für alles?) daher habe ich irgendwann die Seiten nur noch quer gelesen.

Ich finde, man hätte mehr daraus machen können. Es wäre eine leichte, lockere Romanze geblieben. Aber daran ist ja nichts falsch!

4.0 von 5 Sternen I'm a sucker for medical romances 18. Oktober 2011
Von Jen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was pretty excited to see this book when I noticed it on the bestsellers list. I love medical dramas/romances so stood no chance at preventing myself from hitting the "buy now" button. Well I definitely enjoyed the book even if I wasn't absolutely blown away. I found myself getting irritated in the first half of the book as I felt like the novel was repeating itself quite a bit. Kim would reach out, Jess would pull away then realize she is pulling away and thus would accept Kim's attempt at connecting. This seemed to happen an awful lot and the plot didn't advance at all. The second half of the book was an improvement on the pacing and I felt compelled to read it to its conclusion.

(MINOR SPOILER ALERT) One thing that bugged me was that Jess is described at being b*tchy and irritable by most of the hospital staff, but really never appeared to be anything but kind and considerate. She definitely seemed firm in her position as ER Chief, but I just didn't get the dislike that a lot of the characters seemed to have for her. Also, an incident involving Jess' ex is mentioned several times, but is never really described at all. You can put 2+2 together and figure out what happened, but no motivation is ever given. I honestly just would have liked to have had more detail.

I can't recall any editing mistakes so the book gets a big A+ there and while this is pretty standard lesbian fare I did enjoy the novel. The medical stuff is not as descriptive as say a Radclyffe medical drama would be, but she didn't do a bad job with it either. I would read something else by the author given the opportunity and that is about the best praise I can offer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really good medical romance with interesting characters 19. September 2013
Von Alberta M. Yourdan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Dr. Kimberly Donovan is a thirty-something psychatrist - and she's ready to start over as far away from her ex-lover as possible. After being involved in a debate about her ethics, her lover, the ER Chief of Memorial Hospital where Kim worked at, leaves her and even denies their relationship. She ends up in L.A.

L.A. Metro is a really entertaining read that I'd like to recommend to anyone who's interested in reading about grown-up women with pasts and a professional life that's important to them. I really cared about both characters
and liked their way of interaction. These women know what they want and have been burned for it in the past. Despite that, they are still willing to take risks - both professionally and in their private lives.

My only complaint is, that I'd have loved to learn more about the plots of the secondary characters and the hospital in general, e.g. in the beginning, when Kim starts out on the job there's a lot of conflict between the different departments and later on we get to know a young resident that struggles with managing her family and her career. She talks to both protagonists - Jess as her boss and Kim because she's a willing listener. Unfortunately, we don't get to know her better and just assume that she managed somehow. And then there's Jess' sister ... But that complaint is not something that couldn't be corrected in a sequel.

Other than this minor thing I really enjoyed the book and will certainly read it again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not Radclyfee, but still good 21. Oktober 2012
Von Tylis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This was so different from the Radclyfee medical romance that I read. First thing I've noticed was there was not, as one reviewer as called it; the lesbian utopia that seems to be a part of Radclyfee stories. Second was the male testosterone that was abundant in the hosptial as the men all tried their best to hit on the beautiful blond, Dr. Kim Donovan. Third was the complete lack of professionalism. Nurses and doctors gossiping openly about colleagues. Doctors shutting off their beepers because they didn't want to be bothered. Second year residents, thinking their doctors ignoring patient care so they could hit on Kim. The chief of staff ordering an operation on a family member without going through proper procedure. But even through all that, I still loved the slow, boiling romance between Kim and Jess. I was dissappionted that RJ Nolan didn't give much detail into the failed relationship between Jess and her ex, Myra. Hinted at, yes. But I would have liked to know why they broke up and what was said. Still, I couldn't help but feel for these two as they worked through their issues. I also loved the way that RJ Nolan had giving me Kim and Jess's thoughts about each other as their story unfolded. All and all, lovely story and well worth the read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad, but certainly not great... 21. März 2014
Von Becky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Medical romance is the bomb. I keep hoping for the Radclyffe heir-apparent. The one that writes with equal expertise, but goes deeper to reach a full, fleshed out story (beyond the formulaic 250 pages). The developing romance between Dr. Jess McKenna, L.A. Metro's Chief of the ER, and Dr. Kimberly Donovan, the new psychiatrist was believable, but the depth of this story just barely scratched my itch. Hovering superficially above where it needed to immerse the reader into this world and exit changed by the experience. The medical details were scarce. The negative vibe describing the other medical personnel didn't add to the feel of the story aside from being a bit of a downer. Why Jess was so hard to reach was finally revealed, but very predictable long before.

I really wanted to enjoy this book because I thought it had a great pairing (troubled, intense ER physician + gentle, kind psychiatrist) and a lot of opportunity for creative plot twists, but it just didn't live up to any of my expectations. Unless you're a big fan of Ms. Nolan already, I wouldn't recommend it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen not worth the price 22. Juli 2014
Von ali d - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read so many lesbian/medical/romance novels before, and to me this one was just bordering on a little dry in the plot. There was good character development, but there were just some points where it felt a little slow and/or unrealistic. I know there is the stereotype about lesbians moving in on the second date, but I hate reading books like that because I feel like it never actually is something that happens and works in real life.
There were a couple of spelling and/or grammar mistakes, or just putting in a completely wrong word. It's easy to figure out what the author was trying to say, but still.

Another thing. Spoiler alert but, there should be a sexual assault trigger warning on this book. For me personally this is not an issue but there were some graphic explanations that may make some readers uncomfortable.
