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.
This is my first book by T.K. Leigh and I was excited to jump into it. I like stories where someone has to kind of start over with their life. Start a new adventure. So I was happy to get a lot of that out of this book.
Baylee Morgan has just moved from North Carolina to California after divorcing her high school sweetheart. She picked up her moved on from her old life, not knowing anyone in Santa Monica. Almost immediately, she runs into Sebby Powers and they begin a great friendship.
You can immediately see the connection between Baylee and Sebby. They meet by chance with a pretty hilarious first encounter. There’s just something about the other that they can’t seem to stay away from. As time progresses, they spend more and more time together forging a strong friendship. With Sebby having a girlfriend, it seems as Baylee can just let go and be herself, no pretense. So it should be easy that they don’t feel anything other than friendship, right?
There was a delicious build between these two. Friends who grow closer by the moment. Something that just draws the two them together. They also have a lot in common, which progresses the friendship much quicker. You could fee this build up the entire time while Sebby has a girlfriend and Baylee goes on her series of hilariously attempted dates.
I thought Baylee was a strong heroine. Although she might have seemed like a doormat in her former marriage, she is now ready to embark on a new life with full force. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and she now knows that she wants to find out who she really is and what she wants to do in her life. With a little help from her new friends in her building, she does just that.
The group of friends that she finds in her building are all the perfect random blend of friends. You get a little bit of every personality out of each of them. They are hilarious but mostly loyal and loving.
Sebby is handsome, charismatic, funny and just overall likable. He isn’t your typical demanding alpha. He’s calm and collected. He’s caring and just overall sweet.
“I know that 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.”
If you are looking for a quick read that is both sweet and funny, then you should read this book. You’ll enjoy it. Well done, T.K. I look forward to reading more of your work.
“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.”
