Recommended to Bill by: Kelli Jae Baeli
This was only the second fiction work by Jae that I've read, and I chose it because of a recent post Jae did on her own blog saying it is "A highly erotic lesbian story of discovery and trust, that also has a plot and characters you can care about". I think the eroticism level was "just right" for me (a la Goldilocks), was done tastefully and professionally, and acts as "icing on the cake" to what is otherwise a novella I praise for the realistic and believable (other reviewers have used the apt ...more
Another great book from this author.
I think i liked this one more than 'armchair detective', and i loved that one.
This book is well rounded and packed with drama. I wasn't sure i'd like it at first, as i was foolish enough to think the author was going to take the common route of having the suspicious blond turn out to be evil and wreak havoc on our protagonist. So, i spent the first part of the book on the edge of my seat waiting for the shoe to drop. But that made it all the more enjoyable whe

I chose to read Random Acts of Blindness months ago but only got to this morning. I do not know why I waited so long, foolish move on my part. I liked the concept and Ms. Baeli was a new author to me. I must emphasize was. I know the quality of her work now.... and I like it!

The story is about a newly aware lesbian and her first lover. I liked the story line and the characters. There was the angst and doubt and insecurities that come with your first love, especially with t
Love this book. You're probably going to be a bit disappointed if you buy thinking it's an erotica. Don't get me wrong, to a certain extent it is. But to a larger extent, this is a book with a real story line, it's about self discovery and falling in love. A recommended read, maybe it will strike a resonance in you as well.

First let me clarify. I cannot be completely objective when writing a review about a book by this author. I have read most of her offerings and have loved every one of them. I read this book some time ago and revisited it a few days ago. Having said that, let's begin.

First of all, this book beautifully flows from mood to mood as the narra
I finished this book the day after I bought it. I don't re-read most books but a year later I found myself not only re-reading it but enjoying it as much as the first time I read it.
3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4

This is the first book I have read by this author. It was a fun read with plenty of mystery and drama. As for the erotica, it started out strong with some unique scenes (view spoiler), but as the plot unfolded the intimate moments took a back seat. I don't recall a descriptive love/sex scene pass the 1/2 way point. That said it was still

The story that evolved took on a life of its own, but it became her first novel, As You Were. This was followed quickly by Armchair Detective, a book she said sh ...more
