Publisher's Summary

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 headstrong 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 his time and attention. Wondering if there will ever be a special someone to love him is where Levi's love story begins.

Love Me Tomorrow

4.5 Stars
This is my first time experiencing an Ethan Day book and I was pleasantly surprised by how great it was! It was light and sweet and really funny with just a small amount of angst. Exactly what a real romance story is all about. You get a storyline built up with the good, bad, and ugly parts of the characters’ lives and actual character relationship development, some humor, and where the book isn’t just filled with pages of sex. This book also kind of reminded me of a spin-off m/m version of the movie “The Wedding Planner”. I really enjoyed every part of this one and I am literally still giggling hours after I finished this audiobook.

For me, the first hour or so of the book was a little slow getting into, just listening to the details and setup leading into the story. But once the two characters, Levi and Jake met, it was all uphill from there. Levi had the best personality and I absolutely loved him. He was just so likable and at the same time, totally in your face snarky sarcastic, that I could not help but laugh through this entire book. Levi is an up and coming party planner and is planning the event of his life, while simultaneously trying to take care of his sick mom. There are several secondary characters I found to be a hilarious addition to the book as well (Levi’s mom, and friends/employees, and Jakes sister) and I really liked all of their interactions.

Now, Jake... I wasn’t a very big fan of Jake. He really irritated me at times. He wanted so bad to be “friends” with Levi, and I really do get it, when you feel a pull to someone you just want to be around them and in their circle of light all the time. But he still did everything he did, knowing how badly his actions could hurt everyone involved in the end. And while there was no actual physical cheating going on, there was some definite emotional involvement that should not have been happening on Jake's end while he was physically dating someone else… Total jerk-face move on his part that I really didn’t appreciate, but made the book feel more real. I am glad we got every part of these characters good and bad and what they had to deal with and go through in order to finally get the HEA that was well deserved.

Audio Narration – In my opinion, the author picked the best narrator (Jason Frazier) for this book. He did such a great job making sure we got the full effect of Levi’s fun personality off the page and into our ears. I also loved his voice and how laid back he sounded for Jake, you have no problem differentiating the two characters as well as all of the supporting characters, even the female ones. This was a great audiobook overall and I plan on listening to this one anytime I need an extra smile or laugh.

An emotionally complicated and messy romance

Levi is an event planner who loves bringing happiness and joy to others, in his small way, and is great at what he does; unfortunately, the same can’t be said for his personal life. Not into casual sex, Levi wonders if he’ll ever find a lasting love when he is blindsided by his insane response to Jake, the paramedic who responded when Levi’s mother had a fall. After a movie date, Levi is convinced that Jake is the one he’s been waiting for, but is hurt and distressed when he finds out Jake is practically married. Although Levi initially turns down Jake’s overture of friendship, the two end up spending time together as Levi plans Jake’s sister’s anniversary party. As the two become close, their bond, camaraderie and acceptance of one another highlights what Levi has always wanted in a partner and what Jake hadn’t realized he was missing in his relationship.

"Love Me Tomorrow" is an interesting story about the complexity of love and human nature, and makes the reader ask, “What would you do if you felt an instant connection to ‘the one’, but discover they’re taken? What do you consider cheating? Is emotional cheating as bad as physical cheating? Is it cheating to fall in love with someone when you’ve convinced yourself you just want to be friends?” The answers to those questions and how you feel about emotionally complicated and messy romance stories will affect your enjoyment of this story.

What I liked most about this story is how messy the relationships are, and not just that Jake has a partner but for all the characters. For example, Levi’s mother lived a very free-styling life and encourages her son to basically be a homewrecker, because true love trumps all. Not your typical romance fair, neither is the fact that Levi is physically attracted to other people. The MCs aren’t put into a bubble in which they only have eyes and physical responses to one another. Moreover, Jake’s partner, Victor, isn’t made out to be some ogre who doesn’t appreciate how wonderful Jake is, nor is Jake an overly loyal martyr who stands by his jerk boyfriend no matter what. Victor and Jake just grew apart and want other things. They met when they were younger, different people and no longer fit, even though they still care about each other; it’s not overly dramatic, but it’s real and honest.

For better or worse, Jake is also very real in his handling of the situation. He goes on a date with Levi, knowing Levi is into him, and although he apologizes, he still presses to be Levi’s friend. Jake may not know the white picket fences and HEAs Levi was spinning in his mind from the moment they met, but he knows Levi is attracted to him and that he is attracted to Levi. Jake’s a good guy but is very human in his selfish desire to want Levi in his life without having to make any tough choices. Although the story sounds like it would be all high angst and drama, it is balanced out by the different personalities and relationships the MCs have with the secondary characters; there is plenty of snark, banter and an overly vulgar BF all portrayed wonderfully by Jason Frazier.

A large part of my enjoyment for the story came from Frazier’s voice work. Jake could have easily come across as “the nice guy in sheep’s clothing”—where the author wants to portray him as a good guy, but his behavior at times contradicts the accolades he gets from the characters. However, Frazier brings Jake’s indecision, denial and confusion to life, making his actions much more understandable. Additionally, there is a decent cast of male and female characters, and Frazier does an excellent job making them all distinct and unique. His pacing is very good and keeps some of the longer segments of historical/building expositional detail from feeling too boring, helps the more uneven parts of the story flow better, and makes the inevitable conclusion to the long, slow burn of their unintentional courtship seem less predictable and cheesy. I enjoyed "Love Me Tomorrow" for combining the fairy tale fantasy romance of recognizing “the one” at first sight with the reality of how complicated emotions and relationship can be. And though this is my first book narrated by Jason Frazier, it definitely won’t be my last.

Poignant and Romantic, Jason Frazier is Perfect

I’ve never known Ethan Day to serve up a predictable romance, and Love Me Tomorrow is no different. In this unique and clever plot, Day explores the different facets of love, how relationships grow and change, and how it affects everyone involved. This is some messy stuff, but there’s enough humor to keep the story rolling along, and while it might have been less painful if Ethan Day had just ripped my heart out directly, this is one enjoyable story!

There’s no doubt that a good portion of the credit goes to the narrator, Jason Frazier, who pulls out all the stops and delivers a stunning performance. Frazier’s skillful comedic timing enhances Ethan Day’s humorous banter, and he makes the most of this offbeatand colorful array of characters.

What really made the whole experience special for me, is Jason Frazier’s portrayal of Levi, the main character. His warm and sensual voice lends itself beautifully to this heart-sore man. As Levi explores his feelings, and confronts the drama along the way, it is very intimate and I felt each emotion right along with him.

My first taste of Ethan Day’s writing was reading Sno-Ho/Life in Fusion. Between the creative characters, the hilarious banter, and the smokin’ hot sex, I was completely smitten. I never dreamed that this clever, witty author could also deliver something as heart-wrenching and meaningful as Love Me Tomorrow.

So, this is a quirky little love triangle. The moment Levi sees Jake he’s immediately struck by the feeling that he is “The One”. Levi is devastated to learn Jake is currently in a committed relationship with Victor. To add insult to injury, Jake clearly desires Levi and sends off all kinds of signals, tormenting poor Levi in a most cruel and unfair way. Though Levi would prefer to cut all ties, these two are forced together by circumstance, and the attraction between Levi and Jake just continues to grow.

I enjoyed the anticipation of wondering how Jake and Victor were going to break up. Would it turn out Victor is a cheating jerk? Would Victor discover he is being cuckolded and toss Jake out on his ass? (That one got my vote.) I figured something big had to happen so Levi could get his happily ever after, it was never a question of if, just a question of when and how. The sooner the better for me so these two could commence with the lovemaking!

Ethan Day has a way of distilling relationships to the most intimate and personal level. Who can’t identify with at least one of the following scenarios: An ill and aging parent or the totally devoted child. The rotten, cheating-ass ex lover who finds total happiness, once they move on from YOU. Meeting the perfect partner, only to find out they (or you) are unavailable. Stuck in a relationship, realizing you just don’t want the same things anymore, and (yikes!) watching your partner be attracted to someone else… yeah, that happens.

Ethan Day includes some lovely and poignant reflections in Love Me Tomorrow. My favorite, as Levi ponders his discovery that Jake is in a relationship, he comes up with this theory (and I’m going to paraphrase). If there is one perfect person out there for each of us, what happens if you don’t meet at the right time? If either of you aren’t available, if you didn’t wait for each other, then you’re both screwed. It’s scary how true, and depressing, that notion is.

I can’t remember when I’ve become so quickly invested in a character as I was with Levi Goode. Ethan Day explores every bit of him, hiding nothing and leaving him completely exposed. This is Levi’s story and it is intense and beautiful. There’s the perfect ending to this story, but I’m not going to spoil it for you, I’ll just say I cried twice and leave it at that.

One true love

I liked the bang-up way the book started with a wacky charity party that introduces Levi and his upstart Event planning business. We also meet his asshole ex and his new boyfriend. We meet Levi's mother Ruby and his best friend and business associate Valerie. Ruby keeps firing nurses and Levi meets Jake the paramedic. There are immediate sparks, they have the first date then... we meet Jake's boyfriend.
Then the story slows down. It's still interesting but mostly about the two men becoming friends and fighting their attraction and budding feelings. For those of you adverse to cheating in romance don't be alarmed. There is none here.
I loved the characters, Levi is funny and Angelo his new hire is sexy and also a wild character. I admit I rooted for them to hook up.. I hope I see Angelo sometimes in the future! The story has many funny elements, such as Levi's drunken night. I laughed until I cried. Levi's silliness makes a great contrast to the angst in the story as well. I also thought it was romantic, though don't expect steamy bedroom scenes.
I liked the narration as well. Jason Frazier has a soft, easy to listen to voice and his snort-laugh really was awesome! I recommend this if you are looking for a sweet, funny romance.
