Books perform many functions. They entertain, yes. They are also portals to many thoughts, feelings and experiences that one may not live otherwise. Then there are books that sensitise reader to mindsets, emotions and behaviours that may seem difficult to fathom but have strong roots and basis. This book achieves all three.

Well done

The beginning felt rushed, but the rest pan Ed out pretty well. The tough issues were handled well. I felt like every time the story was pushed forward it was shoved too fast too hard. But overall it was a great story with good characters and I was emotionally engaged throughout.
Five stars because the flaws I found didn't detract too much from the overall experience and I would read more by this author.
DNF’ed @ 56% | there’s no point in me continuing this book. I keep rolling my eyes at the dialogue.

An emotional story!

Trauma doctor Nydia is surviving not living. Her life has taken a direction she didn’t plan and so she dedicates all her time to saving others. A domestic abuse survivor and cop, Jo is dealing with cases that trigger emotions of her ordeal and is determined to get justice for the latest victim. When she meets Nydia upon bringing a victim to the hospital, Jo is determined to get to know her, win her heart, and finally find happiness that she knows they both deserve.

Traumatic Love by Ellen Hoil tells a very honest tale of romance in the midst of domestic abuse. As was explained in a few parts of the book, look at it from their side. Initially when Nadia and Jo get together, their bond is super strong, and I thought that did not make sense considering what was happening between them. Considering that one of them kept tearing away at this bond, it seemed foolish and naive, not worthy of a romance. Some of the dialogue even seemed a little juvenile to me, but ...more

Wonderful Story

Jo tries to be patient but Nydia doesn't seem to be able to confide or trust in Jo. Nydia's co-worker and close childhood friend Trudy

I really enjoyed Traumatic Love. Certainly a lot of ups and downs on the romance theme. Quite a bit of police procedures. ER Dept. procedures. Warning. Some references to domestic violence. Both in the present tense and past actions.
