Sometime After Midnight

#AlexFromTarget meets queer Prince Charming in this glittering romcom following a teen music prodigy and the handsome socialite who unwittingly turns him into an internet sensation.In a dingy Los Angeles club late one night, Cameron and Nate meet and find they have much more in common than their love of an obscure indie band. But when Nate learns that Cameron is the heir to a record label, the very one that destroyed his father's life, he runs away as fast as he can. The only evidence of their brief but intense connection is a blurry photo Cameron snaps of Nate's Sharpie-decorated Chuck Taylors as he flees.

Cameron's twin sister, a model and socialite, posts the picture of Nate's shoes on Instagram to her legions of fans with the caption, "Anyone know the gorgeous owner of these shoes? My hottie brother is looking for him...

There was this moment where Nate wanted to go into hiding because the paparazzi attention was too much after the show picture went viral, and I had to put the book down because that didn’t make sense to me at all. How does he so easily become a roadie for a band after that?

This has the potential to be an amazing story and instead fell flat for me. While I did like the concept, I felt as though the delivery was lack luster. I didn't love any of the characters and there needed to be more kissing. None of the plot lines ever truly felt like the got wrapped up, and I felt that everything was too easy for the characters, especially towards the end. Overall not terrible, but a disappointment nonetheless.
