For years, Jim and Eve have shared breakfast every morning at the Early Bird Café. Their constant friend-ship, however, is thrown into chaos when Jim begins writing his second novel. Their friendship strained, the novel takes all of Jim’s focus, and a grievous string of events coupled with Jim’s manipulative new lover put their friendship to the ultimate test.
As Jim struggles with the darkness in his own life, Eve attempts to negotiate her feelings for Jim and their strictly platonic relationship. In the midst of the turmoil, both find themselves wondering if their feelings for each other actually run deeper than the friendship they thought they once had.
"This was not what I expected. I expected the cliche, over the top snappiness or knight in shining armor type of story. The kind the would make me roll my eyes and say 'this doesn't happen in real life!' Much to my surprise the story seemed more realistic and you think it's possible. You do realize from early on who will get together you just wonder when and how. It does take a little bit to get used to the double 1 st person. I've never read a book written in this style.
A pretty good book for my first romance, I definitely recommend it." ~Heath McCombs
"Eve and Jim are two characters you wouldn't normally think of together. She's straitlaced and dresses in business suits while he's more laid back with tattoo, earrings and a bomber jacket. But they definitely seem to come alive throughout this story. You can't help rooting for these characters...I felt more involved in The Early Bird Café by reading about these characters as real people." ~Samantha DeWitt, Reader's Favorite
