Khai Allen is a young and dangerously impulsive therapist, who has a problem making rational decisions. He seems to have everything—money, education, a promising career, sex, and a mildly dysfunctional family. However, he cannot seem to shake the feeling that something is missing.
Plagued with countless sleepless nights and recurring nightmares of an unknown origin, Khai turns to a life of meaningless hookups with strangers to cope. After falling for Terrence, a former escort and addict turned married man, Khai finds himself resorting to drastic measures to keep their toxic love affair alive.
Emotional Page Turner!
"But it kicked. Kicked, kicked, like an unborn child. My gut ached and my eyes watered. I knew something was not right. If he wasn’t home, then why was the A/C unit screeching and rattling inside his bedroom window? He was always saying they wanted to cut down on the electric bill."
"Voices… I heard Rick’s. It was deep, gravely and wrapped in familiar warmth. Then, the voice of a stranger. I couldn’t breathe..."
I could not put this book down! Such real and relatable images. The relationship between Terrence and Khai is fascinating and toxic. Khai's narration is humerus, yet emotional. The love scenes are tasteful and artistic, particularly in "Stay the Night". The author paints elegant, yet steamy images in your mind. I see a James Baldwin in the me making. Cannot wait to read more!
