Summary

Wesley Gates is down on his luck. He's drowning in debt. His demanding career isn't letting up. And, to top it all off, after years of ignoring their failing marriage, his wife has had enough.

Heartbroken and in desperate need of a place to stay while he gives his wife the space she's asked for, Wes is shocked when he runs into a familiar face from his past. As they catch up, Wes can't help feeling grateful to spend time with someone who remembers who he was during their glory days, long before his life fell apart. So, when Elias offers to rent out his spare bedroom, it seems like the answer to all Wes' problems. Wes takes his old friend up on the offer without hesitation.

But soon, Wes realizes moving in with Elias may have been a mistake. Between the wild mood swings, strange occurrences, and total disregard for his new roommate's privacy, Wes begins to wonder if Elias will be his savior or his worst nightmare.

When his wife reveals devastating news that destroys the final bit of shaky ground Wes was standing on, his new roommate may be all he has left.

Maybe that's what Elias wanted in the first place.... Or maybe it's all in Wes' head.

Contains mature themes.

Great Book!

I really like Kiersten Modglin and her writing style. This was another great book. Just when I think I have it figured out she throws in a twist on didn't see coming. Enjoyed the story and the narrator was good, but not my favorite. Didn't do much to change voices of the characters, but his voice was easy to listen to.

Fantastic!

Another twisty, twisted delight of a thriller from Kiersten Modglin!

It was refreshing to see the nightmare roommate scenario with men instead of women.

Great character development. Elias was so well written. She nailed that type of guy perfectly.

The narrator was ok, he grew on me. He has a nice voice that was pleasant enough to listen to. It was more of a read than a performance. He didn’t differentiate between the two main male characters which was a bit confusing at times.

Worth a credit!

Weak

This is really terrible all around...weak story, weak characters, weak narration. There is nothing interesting about this audiobook at all. Spend your time & money elsewhere. There is no reason to listen to this.
