Law school, girlfriends, and career choices were all part of Raymond Tyler's life, but there were other, more terrifying issues for him to confront. Being black was tough enough, but Raymond was becoming more and more conscious of sexual feelings that he knew weren't right. He was completely committed to Sela, his longtime girlfriend, but his attraction to Kelvin, whom he had met during his last year in law school, had become more than just a friendship. No matter how much he tried to suppress them, his feelings were deeply sexual.

Fleeing to New York to escape both Sela and Kelvin, Raymond finds himself more confused than ever before. New relationships - both male and female - give him enormous pleasure but keep him from finding the inner peace and lasting love he so desperately desires. The horrible illness and death of a friend force Raymond, at last, to face the truth. Download and start listening now!

    " It was fiction, hard to believe but easy to relate to at the same time..... Human, very human, always riddled with decisions as is every human beings plight... I loved it... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenya | 1/28/2014

    " A very interesting look into the life of the gay world. I am still and little undecided about my feelings on the matter but it was a very good read and leaves you wanting to know more about Raymond. The story definitely makes you think about the situations women face with brothers on the DL and the consequences that come from being "INVISIBLE". "

    " I started reading this on a plane, with no other captivating entertainment options and in a context where I have a historically high threshold for abysmal writing. This was a total train wreck of a book--the plot, metaphors and character development were so bad that I couldn't put it down. "
