Blurb: Event planner Levi Goode is positioned to inherit the newly vacated throne, becoming the in-demand party planner for Wilde City’s elite. Years of hard work and perseverance are finally paying off as Levi lands his next big fish, working with socialite Julia Freeman-Kingsley. Distracted by work and dealing with his head strong mother, an ex-Vegas-showgirl suffering from debilitating health issues, Levi has his hands full. Time for love or even the occasional one-night stand, is one aspect of life Levi hasn’t been able to master.
Sparks of interest fly during a chance meeting with a paramedic called to the aid of his mother, and thanks to Ruby’s meddling, Levi finds himself on a movie-date with the handsome Paramedic Jake. Personal and professional worlds collide when Levi realizes his new love interest is actually Jake Freeman, estranged brother to his brand new client. Discovering the man of his dreams already has a boyfriend, leaves Levi stunned realizing any hopes he had for something more with Jake were never going to be anything more than wishful thinking.
Struggling to downshift his expectations and remain friends with Jake while continuing to work closely with Julia quickly consumes all of his time and attention. Wondering if there will ever be a special someone to love him, is where Levi’s love story begins.
Review: I must begin with a disclaimer. Ethan Day was one of the very first m/m romance authors I ever read, and I will forever have a soft spot in my heart for him and his laughable, lovable stories. With that said, let me tell you how satisfying Love Me Tomorrow was.
If you’re not familiar with this author’s style, please allow me to fill you in a little. First of all, his stories are full of energy. From the first page to the last, the reader gets this vibe that is unique to Mr. Day’s work. You can always expect wit, humor and snark yet a very serious and meaningful relationship development. Actually, Love Me Tomorrow, in my opinion, deals with some very real life seriousness yet remains upbeat.
The main characters, Levi and Jake, meet through a series of events and instantly connect. Sounds pretty cliché right? Well, that’s where the ‘typical’ ends, because Jake is in a committed long-term relationship and neither man is the type to take that lightly. So, friends it is! Only Jake and Levi can’t help where their hearts and head(s) want them to go.
I love that the author took the road less traveled with this story. The guys didn’t just jump in the sack with each other. Jake’s nine-year relationship with his boyfriend wasn’t just glossed over, and it didn’t magically disappear because he met Levi like so many other stories I’ve read. The tension and desire, the heartache and indecision was very real. Jake and Levi’s friendship and love was slowly built, and as a result, the foundation was rock solid.
One of my absolute favorite things about Ethan Day’s work is his characters, and this story was no exception. I want to be Levi’s BFF, Jake’s sister and Miss Ruby’s anything. They are all so alive with personality and you just can’t help but to want them to be real.
I was so happy to get my hands on Love Me Tomorrow and yet now I’m so sad that it’s over. I will have to go back to patiently waiting for the next story from this author. I can’t wait to see what he gets up to next. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, check out Love Me Tomorrow and all of Ethan Day’s other amazing and fun stories!
