Publisher's Summary

It’s aspiring actress meeting photographer, femme meeting butch in this light-hearted lesbian romance set in Hollywood. 

Aspiring 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.

Just...okay

I've already read this book by Jae, in fact several times over the years. The story line is enjoyable and the characters endearing. The narration however, is pretty awful. Most of the time the narrator sounds like she's about to deliver a punch line.This would be fine once in awhile, or if it was a comedy. But when reading dialogue I know was supposed to be serious and carry a bit of punch, it feels like she made the story a bit of a joke and by doing so negated the emotional impact of the characters interactions.

Wrong narrator

The description of the character Michelle is a butch with a warm voice and deep laugh, yet the narrator gave her a nasally whiny voice. It really ruined the character and took away from the story.

No surprise: Loved it

I loved this light sort of Hollywood romance... excellent for a summer read. Narration was just OK no more... Abigail tends to sing a little when narrating and I don’t find it fitting....

Excellent Audio!

I loved Departure from the Script. I had already read the book. But still enjoyed the audio. Really liked Amanda and Michelle as the two main characters. Abigail Rakocy does an excellent job with the narration.

awesome

Jae knows how to write a story. She is one of today's best storytellers. Her books are all must haves and this book is just that a must have. Her characters are well developed and her plots have wonderful twists. At the end you fell like her characters are friends that you know.
