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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great story the first time, even better the second time I read Departure from the Script for the first time a few years ago, intrigued by the cover and story synopsis. Re-reading it now it reminds me of the author Jae’s writing skill: great dialogue that is funny and realistic; strong female characters who have strong female relationships of all kinds – friends, family, lovers, coworkers, etc – that allow the characters to show many facets of their personalities; all while telling a really good love story. The curtain is pulled back from the TV industry in Hollywood to reveal what goes on away from as well as on camera, challenges the lesbian stereotypes of butch and femme, and shines a light on the assumptions people can make based on appearances which are so often wrong. Amanda and Michelle are wonderful characters, Michelle is especially great to meet and get to know in the course of the story; Amanda’s relationship with her sharp as a tack grandmother (also an actress like Amanda) and her conversations with her agent provide plenty of humorous dialogue to keep the story light and fun to read. Departure from the Script is part of Jae’s Hollywood series of books so if you like the characters in this one or any of the others, chances are very good you’ll want to check out the rest of the series for that same reading pleasure. My only criticism of the book is that the story ended logically but I was not ready to let go of the characters yet; thankfully I know from reading the others in the Hollywood series that they reappear in other books as secondary characters or are mentioned in some way so I’ll encounter them again when I re-read the other books.
