At first, Damien feels lucky to land a job at an influential art studio, but it soon becomes obvious that something’s not right. His gorgeous boss, John, is interested, and he’d be the perfect man for Damien—if Damien wasn’t already in a relationship. It isn’t long before Damien is at the center of a love triangle, forced to choose between hot, punk John and his secret affair with his professor, Levi. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, because something impossible is happening to Damien—and it’s having a drastic effect on his health as well as his perception of reality.
Each time Damien goes to work, things grow more bizarre, starting with Sam—an artist who has been dead for years and now somehow… isn’t. Damien’s unusual circumstances also free him from the restrictions of monogamy—or so he thinks. Levi, who cannot believe Damien’s claims, fears for his sanity. John also has strong doubts when Damien reveals knowledge of a catastrophic event looming in John’s future. Whether the men he loves believe his wild claims or not, neither can deny Damien is languishing, and if they cannot save him, he’ll be lost. More importantly, they must convince Damien to save himself. (less)
I hate to say this because I was so looking forward to reading this book but in being honest, I really did not enjoy this book as much as I had hoped too. The first half of the book was ok. I did not have any issues with anything going on but then the book took a turn for the weird side. It really through me off the way the book suddenly shifted in a different direction and then I just could not get my groove of reading it back on again.
Damien reminds me of one of those people that always goes after the man that is almost impossible to catch and keep. First he is a forbidden relationship with Levi who turns out to be his former professor. But the relationship is very much one sided because of the fact that Levi wants it all to happen behind closed doors where no one knows about them except the two of them. Levi fears the repercussions of his job if any one was to find out.
Then there is John who is attracted to him but at the same time denies even being attracted to Damien because I guess John is from the 1980’s era where being gay is still not widely acceptable. So again Damien is into a man that cannot commit to him because of his beliefs.
So instead of moving on with either one or the other Damien finds himself in a love triangle and in my opinion is happy to have his cake and eat it too.
Like I said I was okay with the book until Lina started jumping around with time travel which really through me in being able to stay into the book like I had originally hoped I would be able too. I believe others will enjoy this book much better then I did but again it is a person preference sort of thing.
