My Thoughts: This book was my first taste of Carey Heywood and let me tell you, totally and completely worth it. I devoured this book and adored it the whole way. It was full of life and honest and romantic--and those are things more stories need to have because it makes them worthwhile. Courtney is having a horrible day...and then she meets Clay. He is, in my opinion, the perfect kind of man because he's not some arrogant jerk. He's a real, honest-to-goodness gentleman who happens to have tattoos. Their relationship was lovely--it didn't jump straight to love, it slowly built from friendship into more. What's even more wonderful is that there were so many things happening with family and friends around them intertwining with the romance. Everything was brilliantly played, and you can't help but be enchanted by it all. The Other Side of Someday was a beautiful story from start to finish. I loved the sweetness of the romance and how everything went so much deeper than just "love" for Courtney and Clay. This book had everything, and it made me want to read everything I can by Carey Heywood. My Rating: Exceptional

What starts of as a bad day only gets worse for Courtney. What could possibly happen next... Love? This was a cute fun story with some rather torrid sex scenes but not a lot of plot twists

I am a fan of Ms Heywood, but enjoyed her books with implied good sex more. Erotic sex gets unbelievable and boring. CB

I have read some other books by this author, she is pretty good. This was not as good as some of her other books, but it was ok. It was entertaining and i liked the characters. It is not a book i would reread, but i still enjoyed it. Gtx

I absolutely loved The Other Side of Someday!  It was a great and fun book.  Carey writes an authentic tale of two people who find each other and along the way find themselves.  I loved Clay and Courtney and the way the complimented each other.   She was having the worst day of her life when someone did a good deed and helped her out.  Later when she repaid that good deed, she met Clay and her life was never the same and neither was his!  It follows their journey of love, sex (wow!) and relationships.  I loved how she incorporated the other relationships with his parents, her mother, and his niece.  I cannot wait to read Luke’s story. I met Carey at the Indies Invade Philly book signing in June.  She is an amazing person and I was so excited that I got to spend the day  “assisting her”, even though I had to hear the 495 bridge detour story 46 times (LOL).  I felt a little guilty that I hadn’t read any of her books prior to that, but I remedied that as soon as I got home.  We had an amazing time in our little corner of the world. She is the  best author ever ever, wink!

Courtney is having the worst day ever. In the matter of what seems like minutes everything comes crashing down around her. She lost her job, her fiancé and she now has a flat the rain. Courtney was able to change her flat and get to a nearby garage, dripping wet and credit declined she was defeated until the older man at the garage gave her the tire. Courtney brushed herself off, figured some things out and went back to pay back the man at the garage, he was the one glimmer of hope she had in her epic day from hell. Who knew a flat tire could lead to such beautiful things? The old man at the garage was not there, but a gorgeous hunk of....Clay was. Clay is fabulous, you will want to jump through the pages and devour him! I adore Courtney and Clay together! I love how these two are not billionaires, they are not perfect, they have real life problems. Carey has a great flow to her stories and has a way of weaving the perfect blend of sweet and sassy. Courtney and Clay are so sweet they would give you a tooth ache, but between the sheets...ooh la la they can light a fire they are so hot and Christ they made me want to find a really big window!!! I love the surrounding stories, especially sweet little Maggie. There is a good group of secondary characters that I cannot wait to continue my "Carolina Days" with. I will not call this a beach read, I am going to call it a rainy day read because it will make you warm and fuzzy inside. You will want to curl up under a blanket, dive in and not stop until you are done.

Carey Heywood has given us a Modern Day Fairy Tale, and I absolutely Loved it!! I felt like a voyeur, eagerly peeking into the separate lives of Courtney and Clay as individuals and as a couple, thinking "Oh, that is so dreamy" the whole time! I adored their friends and families, and found Clay and Courtney's courtship and dates romantic AND steamy! Yes there were obstacles and trying times, but this great story is about destiny and love! It is always a joy to read Carey Heywood's creative contributions to the writing world!! I highly recommend reading it!!!

I loved everything about this book. It's not one of those over the top hard to believe romances.  What starts out as the worst day of Courtney's life, essentially sets her on the path to her destiny. A sweet little old man does a good deed for her, and when she comes back to repay him, she meets Clay. Little did either of them know, their lives would never be the same. Courtney and Clay are HOT. The emotions are real and raw, the romance and sex aren't raunchy or over the top. Carey has done it again and I can't wait till Luke's story.

I loved The Other Side of Someday by Carey Heywood. It was a realistic love story most of us ordinary people experience. She showed how very real, ordinary people can have the fairytale forever love. It is all a matter of seeing the beauty of finding that one person that makes your beat to a new pace. Finding a person worthy of building a life with. A partner that will love you through the ups and downs, no matter what. I have to commend Carey for reminding us how important love is in our lives. Courtney Grayson is having the worst day of her life. That day starts out with her fretting that she forgot to turn off the stove. The day spirals out of control from that point. She gets fired from her job, she has a flat tire in the pouring down rain, and when she goes to pay for the tire, her bank has rejected the card transaction. An act of kindness from the older mechanic that repaired her tire will send her on her way with aa better outlook. She feels like this act of kindness is the turning point in her day, that is, until she arrives home. She finds her fiancé of eight years in bed with another woman. Her day has gone from the worst day to the most devastating day of her life. That devastating day and the one act of kindness will set Courtney Grayson on a new path in life. The path she was destined to take. A path that will teach her about herself and her deepest desires. A path that will lead her to Clay Bradshaw. She will find her inner strength, open her eyes to new possibilities, grow as an individual, and find the inner confidence she never knew she had. She will find a love that will respect her individuality, cherish her for who she is, and love her no matter what. Clay Bradshaw is your ordinary average Joe. Sure he’s one of the sexiest men that Courtney has ever met. But sexy guys are a dime a dozen. What makes Clay special is that he is an ordinary guy, has an ordinary job, comes from a loving middle class family, and values all those precious things in his life. Clay has never been in love or had a steady relationship. Once he gets to know Courtney he knows that she is the girl for him. He understands that she needs to heal from her past relationship. She needs to find herself again. He will be patient, bide his time, and show her that she can always depend on him. He will show her how much he values her as an individual. He will show her how important she is. He will give her his heart. Courtney and Clay’s relationship is a slow and beautiful build. We see this couple go from flirty attraction to friendship. Their friendship moves onto dating. From dating to becoming a couple. Once they become a couple they build a beautiful life together. The Other Side of Someday is a story that we all want to experience. I highly recommend this book.

4.5 SUNNY Stars!!! Carey does it again, she has such a talent for sucking you in right from the very beginning and making her characters so relatable. I absolutely love Courtney and Clay and the story that unfolds in The Other Side of Someday. Courtney Grayson doesn't want to fall in love- she's been there, done that and isn't ready right now, but maybe someday? Clay Bradshaw doesn't even know the meaning of love and doesn't see it ever happening for him, but maybe someday? Life doesn't always go as we have it mapped or planned out and love just might find Courtney and Clay on the other side of someday. But this book is more than a love's a book of finding yourself, being your own person, appreciating what life gives you even with the ups and downs. Life is uncertain- we are all aware of that but life seems a little better when you share those uncertain times with someone else.
