I loved the mystery of Seaspray and the realness of the life of abused partners. Of course I loved the ending also
Winslow Birkel is in an abusive relationship with his partner, Chad Loveless. Winslow meets Darryn Maxwell one night at a local bar where they share a drink or two and talk. Faithful, Winslow is taken aback when accusations fly of infidelity. To escape the growing abusive Chad, Winslow drives off into a storm where he..
This is the first book of this author’s that I’ve encountered. Honestly, it wasn’t what I expected from the blurb- at least not from the beginning. You start with a domestic abuse situation, and then Winslow finds himself somewhere else in a place he doesn’t recognize. There’s a lovely, mysterious quality to it that keeps..
I actually liked the narration of this book better than the story which seems weird but it’s a very weird and wonderful story. I really can’t discuss the story without giving things away so let’s just say relax and enjoy it without trying to figure out what is going on . The narrator David Allen..
With an ethereal quality to it, Rick R Reed tells the story of Winslow’s crossing from abused boyfriend to finding love with Darryn. The story is romanTIC but it’s not a romance.

I was drawn in immediately by the language of this book and its clever use of time and other things to disorient the reader without ever taking them out of the story. Winslow is in an horrific relationship with Chad and definitely needs to escape. His connection with Darryn at The Q makes you hopeful..
Narrator David Allen Vargo delivers a spell-binding performance about self-acceptance, patience, forgiveness and hope. These characters are endearing. The storyline premise is unique and is beautifully written. This story touches on the realm of a dimension of self discovery in the time of almost death. I love the additional touches of audio voice and music..
This is book is exactly what I expect when I pick up Rick R Reed to listen to. An hauntingly, emotional story that pulls me in and has me fixated on the characters, getting to know them and understand them. Winslow and Chad have a turbulent relationship, with Winslow finding himself in a predicament he..
The production on this audiobook was very unique. I’ve not listened to many (or any) audiobooks which include a soundtrack of sorts. It was effectively used and really added to the atmospheric feel of this book. The narrator also has an engaging style, which makes it very easy to get absorbed into the plot. Winslow..
I liked this story a lot. The beautiful writing style and unfolding of mystery was very interesting to follow. I liked every character and enjoyed following their story and loved figuring out how all the pieces fit together. Narrator did a good job with the voices, but for some reason I didn’t love the sound..
