He thought his life couldn’t get any worse…
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 quickly learns his old classmate has an extra room and a non-existent social life. He 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’s problems. Wes takes his old friend up on the offer without hesitation.
Living with someone you barely know is better than living with a stranger… Isn’t it?
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’s head.
Elias invited him in…
Will Wes ever be able to leave?
Poor Wes. He can’t seem to get out of his own way. He’s that guy…the one women probably talk about around the coffee pot in the faculty lounge. The guy that seems to have it all career wise but falls short when it comes to putting his family first.
Addie, Wes’ wife seems fed up with it all. I found myself siding with Addie because Wes annoyed the hell out of me when he made choices that constantly put his job first and his family second. I mean… Addie gives Wes another chance to redeem himself and again… FAIL! Really Wes… you forget to get your daughter Rory after practice one day? Ugh! Wes quickly sizes up to nothing but a dead beat husband and dad.
When Addie insists he move out, he is lucky enough to run into Elias, apparently someone Wes used to know (even though the memory escapes him). Elias seems to be there for Wes every times he is desperate for help. But… who is really behind the chain of events that seem to plague Wes’ marriage, career, and sanity?
