You know how you always say "Someday I will"?
Well, I’ve hit my someday.
Someday begins today.
Baylee Morgan is at a crossroads of her life. Leaving her marriage of ten years and the only life she’s ever known, she starts over in a penthouse ocean-front condo in Santa Monica, California. She soon finds herself immersed, albeit reluctantly, in the daunting and perilous world of dating as an almost thirty-something in Los Angeles, unsure of how to act, what to do, or whether that hot guy she meets in yoga class is straight.
Sebby Powers’ dream has always been to work in the film industry. At the age of thirty-five, he’s one of the youngest up-and-coming producers in Hollywood. His life is perfect. Perfect apartment. Perfect girlfriend. Perfect dog. Until a friendship with a beautiful new woman with vibrant red hair and a similar taste in cheesy movies throws his perfect life into a tailspin.
The Other Side Of Someday is a fun, sexy story of looking for Mr. Right in a world full of Mr. Wrongs, when Mr. Right could be just next door.
“Someday begins today.”
This is my first book by T.K. Leigh and I’m definitely not disappointed! In her acknowledgements, she said this was her first romantic comedy. Well, let me tell you that you could not tell this was her first! The Other Side of Someday is exactly the type of book I needed to read! Not only is it funny but it’s not an insta love book either.
TOSoS is told straight from Baylee’s pov. She’s recently going through a divorce from a prick and needs a change of scenery. I love Baylee’s character. Not only is she strong but she just has an air of happiness coming from her even through the pages of the book. She’s been through some hurdles and overcame them with a strength that I only wished I had.
I also love Sebby. Yes, Sebby, short for Sebastian. You’ll grow to love his nickname like I did. 😉 He’s tall, dark and handsome. Need I say more? He’s also sweet and not your typical book boyfriend. He’s not all alpha male and controlling. Don’t get me wrong I love those too but Sebby was a nice change. He’s perfect for Baylee or you would think so.
“Regret can be a bitch.”
Their friendship started out as a nosebleed and ended with one. Lol, I love the banter between the two. I was laughing so much throughout this book that my 5 yr old daughter started questioning me wanting me to read to her what I was laughing about. Um, banana hammock? No, I don’t think so!
“Love hard and without abandon. Love with no regrets. Love like there’s no tomorrow. For so many people, there isn’t a tomorrow. Don’t take it for granted.”
If you need something different, that’s not an insta love and is extremely funny and a little emotional but not much then you have to read The Other Side of Someday! T.K. Leigh’s writing was phenomenal and I look forward to reading more of her books!
“Sebby?” I called out, hesitantly walking through the entryway and into the open living space.
“Holy shit!” I exclaimed when my eyes settled on him standing in front of his refrigerator. But that wasn’t what caught me completely off-guard. It was the fact that he was standing there, holding a towel in his hand, exposing himself in all his glory. I quickly spun around, my entire face turning a shade of red that would put my hair color to shame.
“Fuck!” he shouted. “Do you take the world’s quickest shower or something?!”
“Balls,” I muttered, keeping my eyes glued to a large print of a vintage DC-10 that was hanging on the entryway wall.
“What?” he countered, his voice turning light and amused. I could almost picture that sexy and adorable smile drawn on those kissable lips of his.
“There were balls. And stuff.”
He laughed harder than I had heard him laugh in the few weeks I had known him, the rumble echoing in the open space.
“I’ll never be able to look at you again without seeing your balls, Sebby. Just thought you should know that.” I drew a long breath, trying to settle my nerves. Seeing his mouth-watering body completely bare didn’t help matters any. “Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to go back to my apartment. I’m going to have a shot of whiskey. Or tequila. Or gin. Or whatever will make my blood pressure drop. And then I’m going to come back and we’ll try this again, okay?”
“I promise I’ll be dressed when you come back.”
“Why were you bare ass naked in your kitchen anyway? Did you want me to walk in on you like that? Trying to show off?”
“Do you think I have something to show off?”
“I… Well…” I shook it off. “I’m not answering that.”
“Yes?” I turned around as one often does when their name is called.
“Jesus!” His expression grew wide and he hastily attempted to hide himself.
“For fuck’s sake!” I spun back and faced the door once more. “Did you not think to cover yourself up after the first time I walked in and saw you naked? I’m still standing here. You know that bath towels serve some rather astonishing purposes these days, the most useful of which being something to wrap around your waist to keep your junk covered! I’m leaving and taking two shots of whiskey. Be back in five minutes.”
