About this ebook

If She Were Blind is the first book in the engaging New Adult series After Twelve by author Laney Wylde. Perfect for fans of television shows like Revenge, Scandal, and Veronica Mars, the After Twelve Series is a gritty social-issue drama that delivers steamy romance, intrigue, and the most bittersweet revenge plots. Estlyn's determination to right every wrong is sure to quench your thirst for justice, yet leave you wanting more.

Not everyone can get justice the traditional way—that’s where Estlyn Collins comes in. A young lawyer in Santa Monica, her "legal" service, After Twelve, works outside the courtroom to tip the scales when the justice system has failed.

For a price.

Thanks to her powerful underground network, Estlyn's success rate is stellar, and her inbox stays filled with inquires from the desperate and vengeful. But when one of those names is a ghost from her past seeking vengeance against her, she’s shaken to her core. Off balance and scared to be alone, she makes an impulsive move for a guy. He’s a complication she doesn’t have time for, but it turns out he may also be an unlikely—if unwitting—asset.

Treading the rapidly thinning line between personal and professional, Estlyn pursues her target while outrunning the one on her own back—only to find she may be running into a lot more than she bargained for.

If She Were Blind is a current award finalist for the 2018 Romance Writers of America Contest, winners announced in November 2018.

“Laney Wylde may just be a magician with her ability to conjure the perfect scenarios and the ways out that no one else can see.” —My Blissful Books Blog

"With plenty of believable drama, laugh out loud moments, and sexy situations and characters, If She Were Blind is well worthy of five out of five stars and my anxious hands long for its sequel." ~Emily Shore - Author of The Aviary

"If She Were Blind is a genre defying page turner. If She Were Blind feels like a suspense, mystery, and romance novel all mashed up into one." ~Reviewer

"If She Were Blind is the first in the new After Twelve series by author Laney Wylde, and it begs the question, what do you do when justice fails you, especially after what could be the worst moment of your life. The answer - if you can manage it, you hire After Twelve and let Estlyn issue her own brand of well-deserved justice." ~Melanie’s Muses

"I am so addicted to these characters. Estlyn is strong and totally a badass. And Cal is swoon worthy. I fell for him right away." ~Rabid Readers Book Blog

I normally detest moving back & forth in time, but it worked for me in this instance. The characters are well developed and believable; balanced individuals yet recognizable for their roles in their good-vs.-evil scenario. Having grown up in Oakland, been a foster-parent, adoptive parent, related to one of the "good" law enforcement officers and thrown out of high school sporting events and off juries for vocalizing my recognition of injustice, I found no need to "suspend disbelief" as is required for most contemporary media, (whether fiction or "news".) Well worth the time, even on electronic media. Thank you.

I downloaded this book on Feb 6 and I deleted it from my library today -Apr 21- having made it to only page 70. If I love a book I can finish it in hours. This book read easily and I can't think of anything really wrong with it except it bored me. I would rather not finish it than waste hours of my life on a story and characters I don't care about.

About the author

Laney Wylde is enamored with all things southern California––the traffic, smog, surprise earthquakes, and nonindigenous palm trees. Consequently, it’s the landscape her strong and sometimes lovable female leads paint their stories on. Her New Adult novels Never Touched and the After Twelve series are bright with provocative themes, steamy romance, and inappropriately timed humor.

When Laney isn’t writing, she’s singing Taylor Swift with her little boy or asking her husband not to tell her about his work as a surgical resident while she’s eating. She daydreams about using her math degree to get into law school, then realizes that would be too much work and that she should just play pretend court on paper instead. While she loves a good book, nothing beats 30 Rock with a bag of popcorn and M&Ms.
