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 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.

My Review

“I don’t want to go another day without you next to me. I know that you fit in my arms better than anyone I’ve ever been with. I know that you make me happier than I’ve ever been in my life.”

“In that moment, his tongue exploring my mouth, I felt how much he needed and revered me. In that one kiss, I finally felt what I had been yearning to feel for years…I felt magic.”

The Other Side of Someday is a refreshing romantic comedy written by author T.K. Leigh. The Other Side of Someday follows the story of Baylee and Sebby. Baylee just relocated to LA after discovering her husband of 10 years has been unfaithful to her. Being out of the game for so long, Baylee finds herself immersed in the crazy dating world at the age of 30. And dating…dating is nothing like she remembers, and sadly the men are nothing to write home about either. That is until she meets Sebby. Sebby is the perfect guy. The chemistry is amazing and he’s even got an adorable dog. The only problem, he’s got a girlfriend. However, the more time Sebby spends with Baylee, the more he realizes that he’s be unhappy for a very long time. And he’s not too thrilled watching Baylee go through the motions of dating, either. Will Sebby open his eyes and snatch up Baylee before it’s too late? Will Baylee finally get the HEA she deserves?

The Other Side of Someday was such a fun read. This book had me laughing out loud so many times. The story-line is fun and refreshing. The characters are so entertaining and make you feel right at home.

I loved watching Baylee go on her journey of self discovery and dating. I loved watching her try to complete her mother’s bucket list and discovering what would make her happy along the way. Sebby was fantastic. He walked into Baylee’s life at just the right moment. And even though the two of them had to overcome quite a few obstacles on their journey to HEA, they built an incredible friendship, which made their fall even sweeter.

The Other Side of Someday was just the read I was looking for. It made me laugh. It made me smile. It kept me entertained. There was just the right amount angst, drama and romance. And in the end, it left me with a smile on my face!

Excerpt

“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.”

“Okay then.”

“Okay.”

“Baylee…?”

“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.”
