    1. How to get over yourself and love a book to spite your own brain.I should hate such a delusional, judgy, twinkzilla of an MC, yet do not.I should detest another plot that could be neatly resolved with a five-minute conversation, yet do not.I should revile the parade of cliche supporting characters, like the sassy mom, or the neurotic fag-hag, or any of them, really.I should scorn them all, yet do not.Because one chapter in, I'm charmed by the MC, careless of the standard plot, and infatuated wit [...]


    2. **3.5 stars**I always dislike re-reading a book in audio format because if I loved a book the first time, a bad narration can kill the memory of a good story for me. However, with As You Are, I didn't adore the book the first time around (in 2014), and I've been waiting for a chance to try Jason Frazier's narrations, so I figured I'd give it a shot. First of all, let me say that Jason Frazier did NOT let me down. He was seriously awesome as a narrator, doing a huge range of voices and really sho [...]


    3. **3.5 stars**Julian is a hopeless romantic a picky, spoiled, outspoken romantic who is on the hunt for "Mr. Right". Now, I know I sound like I'm criticizing him but I'm not, I swear! I liked that Julian wasn't the typical "perfect" romantic hero. He was flawed and funny and I found him incredibly endearing. This book felt like an Ethan Day book. All of the books that I've read from him have had this adorable, manic sense of humor. I loved some of the one-liners in this book so hard. Julian was f [...]


    4. 3.5 starsGOOFY GRIN…plastered on face. Me. Happy. I can read the friends-to-soulmates storyline all day, every day. Especially if it’s written with charm and goofiness and hilarity and warmth…This is my first Ethan Day book (HOW CAN THIS BE?!!!!) and his “voice” makes me laugh! I love the MC, Julian. He’s the kind of guy that I just want to hang out with, drink with, people-watch with, and laugh with. And the one-liners in this book are PRICELESS. Silly, but not cheesy. That takes ta [...]


    5. This was super cute!Cute little friends to lovers. It had some laugh out loud moments. Low on the steam scale. A little too too much rambling but overall enjoyable. I'll definitely check out this author's other books. 3.5 Stars.


    6. Ethan Day writes lovely, funny, sweet books that give stuff to think about. This book had all of that.In this book Julian tells of his story, and of how he found love. Julian is a fantastic character, funny, kind a good friend, and a good son.He is in love with his roommate Danny, but Danny does not love him back.I fell in love with Danny instantly as I tend to do with Ethan characters, he was so funny and I loved his view of the worldBut Julian has created this world in his head that he could n [...]


    7. I really enjoyed this book. I was expecting it to be all laughs and humorous (especially after the opening football scene), but it was very different. It started off light and then turned into an emotional roller coaster! This book has it all. Danny was breaking my heart, but in the end I completely understood his reservations about pursuing a relationship with Julian. And the final scene was absolutely beautiful. Julian also had a lot growth throughout this book.Ethan is amazing when it comes t [...]


    8. This was a cute story from Ethan Day. But it was more than cute, it was romantic, and heartbreaking, and several rollercoasters worth of emotional ups and downs. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me consider if it was possible to throw a fictional character to the sharks–-’cause there is douchebaggery and then there is dickish douchebaggery of the most assholic kind, and I’m pretty sure I know which kind Danny threw himself into. I wasn’t expecting quite the journey I was taken o [...]


    9. And now it's official, I found another favorite author!Julian is an incredible narrator and I really enjoyed his sense of humor and the fact that he knows what he wants and he knows what he is like. He pursues Daniel, at first trying to be near him, doing things his roommate does, trying to be seductive, but he never pretends to be someone else, he is not a deceiver. He was so cute in his klutziness and I think I have rarely laughed so much while reading as with the touch football scene in the b [...]


    10. 4.5 StarsEthan Day has done it again, written another book I love. He has such a way with words and such a great sense of humor the books I’ve read from him so far have never failed to make me laugh out loud. Julian he is funny and sweet someone you would be happy and lucky to have in your life and even though he was the one that was hurting I thought he was such a strong character. Normally I don’t like women in my M/M stories but if they are like Gabby and a BFF I love it. It was funny whe [...]


    11. I need more Ethan Day in my life. He writes with the best humor. I'd LOVE to be friends with all of his MCs. Julian has to be my favorite, by far. There are so many quotable LAUGH OUT LOUD moments (even if they're during an angsty part of the story). Only Day could pull that off as well as he does. I wanted to smack Danny in the head and I fear I relate entirely too much with Julian (may be why he's one of my favorite characters ever). Funny while still angsty. Great read! Can't wait for my next [...]


    12. Totally loved it. Fell in love again. This man has such a way with humor and emotion and characters that are sojust normal. Not the perfect person, the kind of people we all know and probably are, to a certain extent, flawed and clumsy, needy and hopeful. I love reading Ethan Day's work. A definite recommend.


    13. So This is how this little gem of a book made me feeld I can't seem to wipe the face-splitting grin off my face just yet. This was my first Ethan Day book, and it will certainly not be my last!As You Are is hilarious, sweet, with just the right amount of angst, and it's just the perfect book for a lazy Sunday afternoon.Julian is a firm believer in true love, but his views on romance are a little twisted. He's waiting for The One, but fails to see what's right in front of him, which is why he's b [...]


    14. OMG… I liked this book! Luckily I didn’t read it in public, it cracked me up so hard I couldn’t stop laughing out loud.Julian is just… Julian. Funny, quirky, clumsy, a little nutty… and very gay… and in love with his roommate Danny. After more than one year of unrequited love he finally figures it’s time to get over his feelings for Danny and move on. Exactly then Danny makes a move on Julian and these two have sex with each other. When Julian wakes up the next day Danny avoids Jul [...]


    15. I finished this book and went 'awww' *g* I usually don't read many first person books, but I loved this one. Julien was a fabulous character and his personality and sense of humor totally sucked me into the book. Even though it's almost 200 pages, I read it in one sitting. I'll definitely be adding Ethan Day's backlist to my TBR pile.



    16. Another fabulous romp from Ethan Day. I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of first person narratives, but Ethan's sense of humor wins me over every time. This story was just too cute for words.


    17. I don't know if Ethan Day, the author, is like one of his characters, but I like to think so, since Julian from As You Are, Aden from Dreaming of You and Davis from Self Preservation, are men that I'd like to know, and they have all one thing in common, they firmly believe in Love, in The One that will make you happy, and despite the age, or the time spent waiting for him, they know that sooner or later the happily ever after will be there also for them.Ethan Day and his men also represent perfe [...]

My friend Julio who has changed his name to Exhibit A wrote:"I should hate such a delusional, judgy, twinkzilla of an MC, yet do not.I should detest another plot that could be neatly resolved with a five-minute conversation, yet do not.I should revile the parade of cliche supporting characters, like the sassy mom, or the neurotic fag-hag, or any of them, really."You hit all the right points Julio. There was no plot. It was the famous M/M romance trope The Big Misunderstanding only it wasn't so [...]


    19. First of all I must say I liked this book. Really enjoy it, and probably it could have my 5 stars. So why I'm giving 3? Because the writer is not new to me I read two AMAZING DELICIOUS romance called Sno Ho and the sequel Life in Fusion and that's the problem. As you are is a very good romance, and Julian is a funny narrator but unfortunately I really despise Danny, the slut. (view spoiler)[ Unfortunately I didn't buy the thing Danny was a slut because he was trying to deny his true feelings. Da [...]

    21. 2.75 stars. After reading the blurb, I am excited to read this. So there I go downloaded this book and started reading.I want to give the other readers a chance to give this a try so I'll start to the things I liked about this book.It's funny and sweet. You'll laugh reading this book. I also love the sarcasm of the MC. I love Julian's parents. Though their appearances in the book is brief, I think they are both great characters. But the it was a struggle read for me at some point. It started goo [...]



    22. Julian Hallowell, 28, a Hopeful—hopeful romantic has only one thing that I had truly ever wanted: to fall in love and live happily ever after. In a cute way, he can be an egocentric, frivolous but neurotic queer,a one-man show of nuttiness. Julian is Danny’s roommate .Danny Wallace, 31, just plain fucking hot is a walking hard-on, always on the prowl for some boy-band wannabe to bed down for the night. And “You have enough men in and outta here. We practically need a revolving door.” Jul [...]


    23. Julian has been in love with his best friend and roommate, Danny, forever. He believes they'd be perfect together, but Danny loves not being shackled to a relationship and would much rather move from man to man. He isn't looking for love, like Julian, he just wants instant pleasure.I was disappointed with this book for a number of reasons. 1. There was absolutely no build up of the relationship between Julian and Danny. Much of their interaction was told in flashbacks. We see how they grew to be [...]

    25. 3.75 stars I feel like this audiobook caught me at exactly the right moment. Julianne was kinda annoying. And I didn't like how we had two little flashbacks during high intensity scenes and I wanted to scream, "I don't give a fuck about your grandma's funeral, go back to telling me about the first kiss!!!" But I kinda ugly cried a couple times (view spoiler)[When Danny came in with that guy the nights after Julianne and he had slept together, I think I actually felt my heart break (hide spoiler) [...]


    26. I picked up this one because I was told that it was funny. While it did have a few situations that cracked me up, it wasn't what I was expecting. Julian is a great character and his personality is almost addicting. I loved the fact that it only showed his side of things instead of switching POVs. What I didn't like were the flashbacks. They are also the main reason why I haven't read the rest of Ethan Day books. He has this style that keeps the tension up by stopping the current story when it's [...]


    27. Where Do i Started??Operation Danny!!!From the First Page i Knew i was going to love this Book!!I love 4 things in a story1.Has to make me laugh, 2.Has to be Romantic, 3.Sex, 4.Emotional Rollercoaster!!WELL this had every thing in it, I was Giggling, Falling in Love with the characters which were really really good! then I got some Hot MM love!! But threw all that I found my self CRYING!!! You no when it is a great story when all your heart strings are getting tugged at!!I dont wanna give to muc [...]


    28. On the one hand this was a sweet & humorous love story & I liked Julian's voice in the story. On the other, the flashbacks were really annoying. Maybe it was where they were placed. Just when something happens in the present time is when we get a flashback & not a very quick one either. Also Danny, the love interest, is not very fleshed out at all. We know about him from what we're told is his past & what happens in flashbacks, but in present day, there is very little Julian/Dann [...]
