Sometime After Midnight: 05/11/20
Sometime After Midnight by L. Philips (pseudonym of Laura Wettersten) (2018) is a romance set against the Los Angeles music scene. Nate goes to a local dive to watch one of his favorite bands. There he meets Cam, only to late discover he's the heir to a record label empire that Nate blames for his father's suicide. Can Cam and Nate work through their differences to find true love?
Of course they can. But the process is slow and full of melodrama. When Nate isn't bemoaning his father's death or lashing out at Cam then he's working on his music. The music bits while detail oriented slow the pacing down even further.
Sometime After Midnight is unfortunately one of those books where one can skip entire chapters and still follow the plot with little to no surprises.
The best written and most entertaining character ends up being Cam's twin sister who tries to speed things along through her own impulsive means. Frankly, she needs her own book.
