Don’t Judge My by Sylvie Fox Blog Tour

So far, Raphael Augustine’s ten year career as a comedian consists of a lot of ones: one night gigs, one night stands, and one night in jail. But he’s committed to inking a successful TV deal, nonetheless. He’s not looking for a relationship and certainly doesn’t expect to have his briefs tied in a knot by a prim and proper woman from Connecticut.

There’s not much to laugh about in Daisy Fletcher’s life. She never thought an Ivy League degree would land her work as an adult webmaster. Years later, fake chat room dates are her only companions, and a failing business her reward. Her father always told her men only want one thing. By selling that one thing to virtual customers, she’s lost faith in the opposite sex.

After Daisy catches Raphael’s shirt during a striptease at a gay bar, she’s tempted. Can a rakish comic change her ideas about love and fortune?

“My brother did a lot of the work. He lived in this apartment before moving upstairs to a bigger place.”

“Oh, is he a designer?”

“No, just gay.”

She looked like she was hiding a smile. I tipped her chin up, turning it toward me. “It’s okay to laugh. It was a joke.”

My coffee breath be damned, I was going to kiss her. Then the phone rang, breaking the tension I’d worked to build up. Who was at the front door now? I went to the hall and picked up the phone and listened to the delivery man’s spiel. “Yeah. Okay.”

I poked my head back in the kitchen. “I have to get something from the mailman.”

“Oh, alright. Maybe I should…”

“Stay where you are. I’ll be right back.”

Why did a package have to come now of all days? Daisy was a skittish one. I had to get back in there and close the deal. I signed some piece of paper and grabbed the box from the guy in a blue uniform. I was usually friendly with him. I think he’d even come to one or two of my shows, but I needed to get back to her before she changed her mind. Maybe I’d start a fire, ease that tiny sweater down, unbutton that dress….

Daisy had her loafers on and sweater pulled tight. She tucked her hair behind her ears. “I’ve got a lot of stuff to do. I should really go. Um, thanks again for breakfast.” She pulled me in and kissed me on the cheek.

“Maybe we could do this again sometime.” I was thinking sometime today or sometime later tonight after I got back from Comedy and Magic.

She ducked her head. “I’d like that, Rafe. I’d really like that.” She gave my arm a brief squeeze, and she was out the door. “You may be my first gay friend.”

Gay. She thought I was gay? No way was I getting laid today.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Overall this is an interesting story - but at points there seems to be no progression and drags a bit. There were sections which I found uncomfortable, and were dealt with in a way that I did not really like. However, there were moments of wonderful humour, and moments where the characters woke up to themselves in a most believable manner. The plot could be tightened, but the story is definitely original and entertaining.

Give it a go, and see what you think - I felt it was worth my time, and hopefully you will too!
