Inseparable (Evergreen) by Chris Scully

November 10, 2013



After a car accident, Adam wakes up in a hospital room with no memory and a man named Joe, who acts like his boyfriend. So when Joe says Adam is straight—and Joe’s not—and they’re just best friends and roommates, Adam is more than a little confused. But as Adam starts to fill in the gaps, the one thing that becomes apparent is that Joe is the missing piece that can’t be replaced.

My Review:

This was the perfect short story to tuck me into bed. I saw this popping up on Goodreads and was curious, reading the blurb had me smiling so I dove in and I went for it, and l love it when I trust my instincts with books. This did not disappoint. It had me from the first few lines and I went into sappy romantic girl heaven with these boys.

Adam wakes up in a hospital room without his memory. He doesn’t know how he got there or the more important details of his life yet there is a man who has never left his side. A man, he does not know but in his presence Adam feels safe. Upon learning that this man is Joe, and the way he clearly cares for Adam, he is shocked when he is told they are not together and that he straight…

“I don’t remember you,” I rasp. And somehow that is worse than the pain, because this man has hardly left my side, and I’ve just forgotten him.

“Maybe up here,” Joe gently strokes my forehead, then slides his hand down to hover over my heart. “But what about in here?” It’s so simple but it’s true. Deep down where it matters most, I do know him. From the moment I opened my eyes, something in me recognized him.

The story, told in Adam’s POV is so sweet and real I fell for it hard. Not so difficult to believe if you know any part of me and my soft core for stories like this. Adam’s lack of memory gives him a chance to see is relationship with his best friend with new eyes. I loved Adam’s journey, I loved him finding out about himself and his laptop discovery was nothing short of fun. Joe broke my heart, I can see the picture that Adam kept going back to, that look on Joe’s face. Oh boy. So much emotion with so little pages. I adored this, it hurt at times but I am so happy to learn that we get another book and that we get to hear from Joe. I am anxious and excited to see where there story goes and how these two rearrange their friendship into more.
