And Call Me in the Morning by Willa Okati

And Call Me in the Morning by Willa Okati
Novel: 151pages
Rating: 4 out of 5

Take two, and call me in the morning.

Eli and Zane. Colleagues at work and close friends, though on the surface it's an unexpected friendship between an odd couple. While Zane took the "high school to college to med school" track, medicine is Eli's second career and the best choice he ever made. He has work that he loves, an extended second family of colleagues and friends, and Zane.

So why does everyone make such a big deal about the pair of them?

Yes, they spend a lot of time together. It doesn't mean they're a real couple. When teased about it one too many times by their colleagues, Zane challenges Eli to set the record straight with a kiss to prove there's absolutely no chemistry between them.

Neither expected a spark to ignite between them. More than a spark. Desire. Passion.

Zane wants to try getting up close and personal again to see if it was a one-time fluke or something more. Eli thinks he's too old to jump the fence now, but he can't say no to Zane and he doesn't want to.

Truth be told, Eli's not so sure they can set the record straight after all.

Short Review:
I enjoyed this one so much. It has one of my favourite tropes of friends to lovers, and it was just so wonderful. The reason this book is awesmazing is because the characters are older and so sweet.

Eli and Zane are best friends and always together. Everyone sees them as a package deal and a little more than friends. Eli is getting annoyed of having to explain their relationship to colleagues, why can’t they understand that Zane is just his friend. When a little brunch with friends go crazy, Zane decides to test theory with a little kiss. Eli is reluctant but willing to prove that there is no spark and no attraction between them.

That gets blown out of the water, when the kiss lights their pants on fire and it seems that their friends might have been right after all. They both decide to do a little exploring, Eli is terrified and Zane is the more willing partner. It’s a friendship after all, and Eli has no greater friend than Zane and it seems the love he has for him will become so much more.

As I said, a real fan of friends to lovers plot, it makes my heart feel super happy. I loved Eli/Zane together and the discovering of how awesome things are between them. It was such a treat to read about older characters that are close in age, it’s not something I get to experience often *I Like It* older men are hot. It had the right amount of angst and drama to keep the reader interested.

 I really enjoyed this one and Will Okati is now on my to read author list.
