Departure from the Script – Jae

Departure from the ScriptAspiring actress Amanda Clark and photographer Michelle Osinski are two women burned by love and not looking to test the fire again. And even if they were, it certainly wouldn’t be with each other.

Amanda has never been attracted to a butch woman before, and Michelle personifies the term butch. Having just landed a role on a hot new TV show, she’s determined to focus on her career and doesn’t need any complications in her life.

After a turbulent breakup with her starlet ex, Michelle swore she would never get involved with an actress again. Another high-maintenance woman is the last thing she wants, and her first encounter with Amanda certainly makes her appear the type.

But after a date that is not a date and some meddling from Amanda’s grandmother, they both begin to wonder if it’s not time for a departure from their usual dating scripts.


Jae always writes good books. I have never yet been disappointed, and don’t expect to be

This is an excellent, light and breezy Traditional Romance. Started as a short story, now  long novella.. another 20 pages and it would have been a novel. One thing Jae is – prolific with her words.

Jae - biogThe characters are charming, realistic, believable and as always have integrity. Their worlds a recognisable even though they may be beyond our normal daily ken. Their trials and tribulations – light in this instance, are those we will all relate too.
Gran is a gem, deserves a book of her own and definitely fits into the hollywood star with a heart of gold. And for once perceived threats and angst are unfounded as people turn out t be more accepting than expected.

A delightful read for a lazy afternoon, nothing to challenge and everything to enjoy.
