When Calden wakes up – every time he wakes up – the last thing he can recall is a debilitating headache that even his medical background failed to identify as anything more serious than a regular headache. He also remembers his decision to ignore the fact that his best friend Eli is married and to tell him about his long-standing feelings for him. He remembers June second.
But it is not June second anymore. The tattoos on his arm and chest prove it. They also tell him why he doesn’t remember anything past June second… and why Eli sleeps in his bed now.
When Calden wakes up – every time he wakes up – he gets to discover Eli is in love with him for the first time all over again.
This is a very unique book. Presented in alternating view-points of the main characters in opposite chronological order; Calden’s working from the last day to the first he actually remembers and Eli’s working from the beginning to the last day. You can also choose to read in typical chronological order but I feel you would miss out greatly on the layers of nuance presented in the way the story unfolds in this narration.
Calden is not always a pleasant man to be around, he is arrogant and demanding, but within the pages of the book you discover another side to him, one that Eli could love. Eli is a saint with more patience than anyone I know but I am still amazed at how he handles what life has thrown at him. Together they fit, and finding out how someone with no ability to learn is able to grow is fascinating.
The science fiction element of the story was very low, so if scifi isn’t your thing, don’t let that stop you from picking up this great read!
Just a note, if you pre-order, from the links below you can save a little bit!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
