Faith & Fidelity (Faith, Love, & Devotion #1)
and JP Handler (Narrator)
Reeling from the recent death of his wife, police officer Evan Cerelli looks at his four children and can only see how he fails them. His loving wife was the caretaker and nurturer, and now the single father feels himself being crushed by the pain of loss and the heavy responsibility of raising his kids.
At the urging of his partner, Evan celebrates a coworker’s retirement and meets disgraced former cop turned security consultant Matt Haight. A friendship born out of loneliness and the solace of the bottle turns out to be exactly what they both need.
The past year has been a slow death for Matt Haight. Ostracized from his beloved police force, facing middle age and perpetual loneliness, Matt sees only a black hole where his future should be. When he discovers another lost soul in Evan, some of the pieces he thought he lost start to fall back in place. Their friendship turns into something deeper, but love is the last thing either man expected, and both of them struggle to reconcile their new and overwhelming feelings for one another.
What a story of one man's journey to reclaim his life. This audiobook grabbed my attention from the beginning and I was genuinely worried for Evan. His character felt authentic. Along with the secondary characters, readers gained a complete look into his life. Then along came Matt with his feelings of isolation. As their friendship grew organically, I was cheering them on despite the obstacles.
Faith & Fidelity was done well on audio and the story lends itself to the format easily. The narrator provided a range of voices for the many different characters and infused the appropriate emotion to highlight the story without overpowering it.
