It’s a great story about lesbian romance and love, I like the twist in the love story of Jessica and Caroline. I thought there’s a happy ending for both of them. But after I read this book I’ve learn that you need to be careful if you fall in love with someone else you didn’t know everything about his/her life.
Poorly written, Way to short, with no desired direction, if this is all Rachel P. Smith has in her, then she should direct her Imagination, and writing elsewhere, or go back to school, I don't recommend this book to anyone.
Sara M Jackson may be new to the literary scene but she writes so well that it seems assured she will be around for a long time. Sara writes Lesbian gay novels and has an understanding of the challenges accepting lifestyles different from the norm can be. Her characters not only are well delineated: they also are global in their responses to same sex living challenges.
As we are beginning to appreciate, Sara has an affinity for dialogue, a gift too seldom encountered in novels that relay on intensified ‘effects’ and scene building. She is especially sensitive to same sex interaction – here, between girls – that keeps her story grounded in a reality-based situation. A bit of sample of her writing helps appreciate the artistry of Sara: ‘I watched the girl - around my age of twenty-one, I assumed - as she waved at someone in the distance and then settle down at the bench on the other side of the fountain from me. She looked over and I blushed, hiding my awkward smile behind the multicoloured scarf blanketing my neck. She was so beautiful. I was envious. The way she held herself, the in-fashion clothes that sat so well on her perfect figure - I just couldn't stop staring at how good she looked, slowly undressing her in my mind until my conscience got the better of me…I’d never been a true believer of instant attraction - infatuation that required nothing more than a single, momentary, life-changing glance.’ Intense, real, eloquent and very much in the present, this style of writing is what makes Sara’s fine books succeed.
The plot is well defined in the synopsis: ‘Love is not an easy thing to come by - a concept born from undying appreciation, it is something that requires the unrequited endeavour to make someone happy, whatever the cost. HER SAPPHIRE EYES explores love and life, and how the joy of infatuation and fate can bring together people in the strangest of ways, regardless of past experience, personal preference or social normality. However - there are more elements that surround love which also play an important part here. While love is difficult to come by, trust is all the more difficult to even entertain the possibility of. The consequences and after-effects of trust are explored by our main character, in relation to love, and the themes pertaining to everyday life can resonate with all of us.’
It is easy to become habituated to the books of Sara M. Jackson, on of our better writers of lesbian erotic fiction of the day. Grady Harp, May 16
The prose is very lovely, and I stayed engaged until the end. However, there are many problems with this piece. For starters, it seriously needs another edit. There are many, many errors especially around dialogue tags. Second, the pace is way too fast. They meet and then the next day basically are telling each other they love each other. The biggest problem, though, is the complete lack of logical consistency in the viewpoint character. She goes from not believing a word the cops are saying about Caroline to straight up murdering her because the man who *abducted* her claims she's a murderer with absolutely no evidence to back her up. The cops didn't even tell Jessica that Caroline was a supposed murderer. It was a nonsensical ending.
