Duty & Devotion
Faith, Love, & Devotion, book #3
Tere Michaels (Author) & JP Handler (Narrator)
A year after deciding to share their lives, Matt and Evan are working on their happily ever after—which isn’t as easy as it looks. As life settles down into a routine, Matt finds happiness in his role as the ideal househusband of Queens, New York, but he worries about Evan’s continued workaholic—and emotionally avoidant—ways. Trying to juggle his evolving relationship with Evan and his children, Matt turns to his friend, former Seattle Homicide Detective Jim Shea.
The continued friendship between Matt and Jim is a thorn in Evan’s side. Jealous and uncomfortable with imagining their brief affair, Evan struggles to come to terms with what being in a committed relationship with a man means, and the implications about his love for his deceased wife, the impact on his children, and how other people will view him. His turmoil threatens his relationship with Matt, who worries that Evan will once again chose a life without him. But now, the stakes are much higher.
Ah, this sequel to the beginning of Matt and Evan's love story was like a second helping of dessert. You could be full after just one but the second made it all the more delicious. The cast of characters surround them, each bringing a unique dynamic to their story. The author has created the world to feel as if you could join right in and be a part of it. They're normal, struggling with emotions and yet full of promise. I dare anyone to listen to this series and not cheer on these men.
