“Devotion” by Marianne Evans, book review
Kellen is an important agent in the music industry in Nashville, so he is surrounded by beautiful and talented men and women. But he only has eyes for Juliet, his wife, until now. Some how over the 10 years of their marriage they had become busy and did not spend as much time together as they did when they first married. But both were happy. Or maybe not?
Juliet is busy with volunteer activities including working at a homeless shelter. Kellen is always scouting new talent, and when he meets Chloe. A very talented singer, she also is just a wonderful women, and seems attracted to Kellen. At first he is flattered, then he lets the attention feed his ego, until during a recording session, they kiss.
As soon as he backs away, Kellen knows he is wrong. He apologies to Chole and reassigns her music career to another in his office. But word hits the rumor mill and Juliet hears about it in the restroom at a music industry event. Everything falls apart. The rest of the book is how they work to salvage their marriage and relationship.
This book was very believable, even though it is fiction. The ideas and characters are very real and show how infidelity can creep into a marriage very easily. And I appreciated the Christian council both characters received from their pastor.
