Synopsis from Goodreads:

When there’s red, close your eyes and try again.

“Maybe he’s right. Maybe I am the cause of this. Maybe you were normal before meeting me.”

When something tragic happens, you want nothing more than to close your eyes and make all of the pain go away. For Gable Peterson it’s a little more complicated than that. When detective Maurice Ashford shows up at his door with news that his boyfriend, Avery Blair, has been found dead, Gable is left devastated. Seeking some sort of comfort, Gable closes his eyes and imagines a world where none of this happened.

Only, when Gable wakes up, he’s surprised to see that Avery is still alive.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This is an intensely emotional and very thought provoking tale. The foreshadowing and flashbacks really let you get a full picture of what is going on. Also, the fact that the novel is set up like a play gives an extra dramatic feel to the entire story. All in all it adds up to a very trippy read.

The character development in this tale was very well done. By the end of the story I felt like the main character was an old college chum. I knew him intimately yet without irrelevant details. The rest of the cast was also well developed. Each individual was developed to a degree that suited their character and lot in the story perfectly.

As a whole this story is creatively unique. It hits you hard yet leaves you with a feeling of contentment. It was well worth the read.
