If you walked in on your high school sweetheart and husband of ten years in a compromising position with your best friend, what would you do? Would you kick him out, serve him divorce papers, and leave the small town in North Carolina where you grew up, taking his dog with you just to spite him?

Because that's what I did.

I have no idea why I chose Santa Monica as the place

4.5 ~ 5 STARS


What a good time I had reading this story! Even with the couple taking the WHOLE darn book to get together and the fade to black sex scene that I was highly anticipating (hint, hint want a bit more on the couple). The journey to their hea is so damn good that I can’t help but slap a 5 Star rating on this story. The chemistry, the banter, the writing, all those laugh out loud scenes all contributed to making this a feel good fun read.

Oh my…this one turned out to be so much better than I had expected. 'The Other Side of Someday' was my first read by this author and I'm pretty sure it won’t be my last.

Baylee is starting over, newly divorced from a cheating scumbag she relocates and begins her new life. New friends, a bucket list of her mothers, a dream of writing a novel and a handsome neighbour that when they first met she gives a bloody nose...not in anger though. This book was hilarious at times and had me in tears of laughter as well as a few of sadness. I became so invested in Baylee and Sebby and I was willing them from the very start but TK Leigh makes us wait. This was a believable an ...more

My 1st book by this author and it won't be my last. I had a beautiful fun time with this story. With these characters, which we have so many to love. Baylee's journey!!! OMG. Fabulous. I'm so extremely happy for her.
This was romance/womans fiction and I LOVED it.

2.5 Stars!

And....another one bites the dust.

It actually started off pretty good. I enjoyed the build-up and there was some good humor. But then I just got annoyed with the main characters and how stupid they were being.

And then what started out as "humor" and banter just made me roll my eyes.

And then, as if it was even possible, the main characters became even more stupid at the end. At that point I just didn't really care if they ended up together.

I did finish. But I started skimming around

This is one of those times that while reading the book, I wondered if somehow I was reading a different one than everyone else. It has hardly any low ratings and yet, I couldn't stand it.

I mean, it's a cute story. The bones of the book, the overall reaching plot...her moving to LA, deciding to full fill her mom's bucket list to find her own inspiration, the love story, none of that was that bad. Maybe not sparkling but...that alone would have been a decent 3 star read for me. That was what I was

I absolutely adored this book. It was hilarious and romantic all mixed into one. Baylee escapes to California to start her life over after her husband rips the carpet out from under her. By freak accident she meets Sebby. The two hit it off right away and Sebby convinces her back men and women can be friends with no romantic feelings.

The whole story is just one funny incident after another. Baylee decides to start dating again and the results are not what she expects. All along Sebby

It was just right in everything that author wanted to say with the plot line and with the characters.
I don't have one thing bad to say about it.

This book is hilarious, exciting, and will have you almost peeing your pants at times. This romantic comedy is a fantastic read that you can't and won't put down! I literally couldn't get enough. The story is beautifully written that you find yourself in the front seat of this ride.

The journey Baylee takes is a beautiful one. Not only does her journey introduce her to new people, new experiences and self discovery, but she also takes a journey towards love.

This book started out great but then I had to put this on hold for another book that I'm dying to read. Unfortunately, when I picked from where I ended, my interest for this book vanish.

I kept dozing off for three consecutive days. Couldn't even finish the whole chapter. That's when I decided to just drop this book.

I really cannot say whether this book was really dull or was it because I stopped reading that's why I lost my drive to continue. I really don't know. So please don't let

A new-to-me-author with an enjoyable story to tell. I really enjoyed the writing and the characters. It's a clean romance with a slow build through some rocky times ending with a nicely plotted happily-ever-after.

Sometimes you’re blind to everything around you so you need someone else to act as your glasses.

Welcome to the Other Side.

I’m a huge fan of T.K. Leigh and I love her style. This book, though a bit different because of the humor in it, is exactly what I needed right now. It’s fun and light, gives hope when I needed it and is full of laughs. Even though it deals with real life issues, I see Baylee Grace deal with them in a similar style to me and my friends. I recognize us. The way we love and s

"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

Yes, men and women can be friends, but there's a big difference between friendship and whatever he's doing with her...

Let's recap, shall we? How about we look at his actions by his girlfriend's POV...
"I have a boyfriend and he became friends with his new neighbor"... Ok, good for him!
"He sees her every morning and buys her coffee"... Well, that’s strange...
"When he’s away, they text every day, over inside jokes"... Nope, doesn’t look good...

“Someday begins today."

The Other Side of Someday is the first book I have read by T.K. Leigh and I sm so shocked as to why I have not read her books sooner because this book was truly fantastic. It was funny and light and for some strange reason it taught me a few things about life and love.

Baylee decides to pack her bags and heads straight to California after divorcing her prick of a cheating husband. She meets a man who later becomes her neighbour who brings her joy and later begins a journey

3 ⭐⭐⭐ - OK decent reads.

Hell, Will was screwing Julie the duration of our relationship anyway.

Will was calculated. He knew enough that if he charmed Camille, she would do her best to convince me to give him a chance.

When I walked in on Will banging Julie, it felt like a burden had been lifted off my shoulders, despite how hurt I was.

“And what about this ‘Ice Queen’, as Marcel called her? Is she your girlfriend?” I crossed my arms in front of my chest.

“Yes, she is,” he said.

DNF. The main characters were so awful I couldn’t continue. They make fun of people with dementia, gay people, small towns.

In addition to the MMC being a total dickweed and leading the FMC on for a while. He keeps kind of hitting on her but then INSISTS that they be just friends because he’s got a girlfriend in New York. It’s terrible. He basically treats her like shit while she gazes at him dreamily. No thanks. Returned for refund!
