As You Are by Ethan Day ~ Review by Caroline

The first thing I should say about this book is DO NOT read it in public.  People will think you are completely mad when you start laughing out loud and are unable to stop!

This was my second time reading As You Are and I loved it just as much this time round. Ethan Day not only  gives you 2 MC’S who keep you rooted to the story but some great side characters too. Delilah and Gabby are strong woman and both add to the story.

From the Publisher

Operation Danny…that’s all bartender and recent college graduate, Julian Hallowell has had on his mind the past year. Julian may have no idea what he wants to do with his life, but he definitely knows he‘s in love with the boy next door: The one in next room to be exact, his roommate Danny Wallace.

Danny owns a used text book store just off campus and while Julian has done his level best to make Danny fall for him, all his hard work appears to have been in vain. Danny doesn’t seem to view Julian as anything other than that…a roommate and friend. So when new guy in town Andy Baker asks him out on a date, Julian can’t seem to think of a good reason to say no.

Julian has already instituted a Reverse Operation Danny plan, which he’s positive will purge all thoughts of love and lust for his roomie out of his head. He’s ready to move on and start looking for his next Mr. Right, and Andy just might fit the bill.

My View

Julian is nearly 30 and still looking for Mr Right. He is a bundle of energy, sarcasm and wit who believes wholeheartedly that he will get his HEA and find his long term soul mate. You cannot fail to love him even when his thoughts and actions verge on the crazy side of manic.

Danny is a completely different character who hasn’t always known the love and security that Julian had growing up. When the 2 become housemates Julian instigates ‘Operation Danny’ convinced he has found his future love.   Danny being totally oblivious continues to parade his one night stands in front of him although all the little things he does for Julian give away how he really feels.   Finally when Julian goes on a date Danny wakes up and takes notice but is unequipped to deal with his feelings.
The dinner party at Gabby’s is possibly one of the funniest things I have read in a long time, by the time they had found the last chicken breast on the refrigerator I was crying with laughter!   When Danny finally gets his act together he just comes across as so vulnerable you feel the need to sigh for him.

“Why!” Danny pointed at me. “I didn’t tell you why.
Well, I just don’t want you to, because…well, because, I
think I love you.”  Oh Danny I love you!

If you want a funny, witty, romantic read with great characters this is certainly one you should read 🙂

  1. If there were I would say not too many. I first read it back it April and although my memory is not always fantastic i didn’t notice too much difference. Totally worth a re-read in my opinion 🙂
