About “I’ll Love You Tomorrow”:
Las Vegas… is just the right amount of wrong.
Mitch Benson never expected to file for divorce. After serving two tours of duty in the United States Navy, he returns home to Los Angeles, ready to elope with the love of his life, Lauren Templeton—united in marriage beneath the dusty, plastic-flowered archway of a Las Vegas wedding chapel.
But seven years later, their Sin City marriage seems more like a mirage. Mitch believes the writing is on the wall that his country-club caliber wife settled for a blue-collar carpenter. His career aspirations and the love of his life are slipping away.
Amidst the wreckage, an unexpected connection with a childhood enemy, blossoms. Confused and conflicted, Mitch lays all his cards on the table, ready to make the wager of a lifetime. The question is… which hand should he bet on? Love… or lust?
