Author: Jae


This is a second, revised edition of Jae’s award-winning lesbian romance Something in the Wine. It includes the sexy follow-up short story “Seduction for Beginners” as a bonus.

All her life, Annie Prideaux has suffered through her brother’s constant practical jokes. But Jake’s last joke is one too many, she decides when he sets her up on a blind date with his friend Drew—neglecting to tell his straight sister one tiny detail: her date is not a man, but a lesbian.

Annie and Drew decide it’s time to turn the tables on Jake by pretending to fall in love with each other.

At first glance, they have nothing in common. Disillusioned with love, Annie focuses on books, her cat, and her work as an accountant while Drew, more confident and outgoing, owns a dog and spends most of her time working in her beloved vineyard.

Only their common goal to take revenge on Jake unites them. But what starts as a table-turning game soon turns Annie’s and Drew’s lives upside down as the lines between pretending and reality begin to blur.

Something in the Wine is a story about love, friendship, and coming to terms with what it means to be yourself.

    What starts off as revenge on her practical joker brother blossoms into something Annie could never have imagined. When Jake set her up on a blind date with vineyard owner Drew, not letting her know Drew was a woman, she was furious. After a lifetime of teasing Annie has had enough and she and Drew decide to pretend to be in love to get back at him. I absolutely adored this tender and beautiful story. Jae has managed to create two characters who managed to tug at my heart strings and keep me enthralled. Annie is a very rigid and seemingly staid accountant, who has never felt any great passion in her life. Drew feels drawn to her immediately but she straight so what can she do? How they begin to become more than friends and make huge differences in each other’s lives had me hooked. I didn’t want it to end. The bonus short story at the end is just perfect and so unbelievably romantic. An excellent 5 star read!
    I was given this ARC free by Ylva in return for an honest review.

    My initial impression of this book was that it went on too long over the same stuff. But then after thinking about it, I’ve decided it wasn’t in fact the book but me screaming at Annie to wake up and smell the roses. There is a serious undertone to the book that doesn’t become apparent immediately but gradually builds. But Jae’s subtle sense of humour brings a light hearted response to what is generally a serious issue. Annie’s journey into lesbianism is funny what with her research and even some of her paranoia, you find yourself relating to her. I enjoyed the book immensely and it kinda of proves some blind dates are worth going on. I enjoyed it and I think you will too. Enjoy!
