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.
I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Anterograde by Kallysten in exchange for an honest review. This book is pure poetry especially if you choose to read it in the order in which the author intended. This is a beautiful book that lies somewhere between Sherlock Holmes and 50 first dates. A contemporary romance filled with such an intense love that transcends the pages of the book and had me staying up all night unable to put this book down.
This isn't your every day romance book as the main Calden is suffering from a medical condition called Anterograde which effectively means every time he goes to sleep he forgets everything that has happened that day. However, Calden has been in love with Eli for years before this condition begins so every morning he is the first person he thinks of. Eli is also a very loveable character as when Calden becomes ill he never even hesitates before dropping everything and devotes his life to taking care of Calden. These two characters are so realistic that at times my heart broke for the unfair situation they found themselves in and with no cure for Calden's condition.
I would recommend this book to anyone in search of a good love story.
