A Kept Woman

After sixteen years of marriage Dean and Irene Reeves can both testify that their marriage has become dull and lifeless. With their daughter Tamara away at Spellman College, one would think there would be more time TOGETHER. Instead Irene finds herself alone with a drink in her hand most evenings and Dean still at the office working countless hours.
Granted, Dean is the big CEO of Sitrop Corporation a struggling company he put back on the map.

Attractive single mother Kayla Brown, a marketing director at Baker and Anderson Consulting firm is bought in to investigate a company that Sitrop is looking to invest millions of dollars into. Dean and Kayla attraction blossom's into an affair lasting a decade.

Now Kayla becomes a kept woman being lavished on by her wealthy married boss, while Dean's wife sits home and continues to look the other way not really knowing what to do.

Find out what happens when being the "mistress" starts to take its toll and the spiral downwards causes serious issues for everyone involved...leading to the old saying; what goes around comes around!

Author Nathanial Porits serves up his version to an all too common story. Money, power, sex and a doomed relationship fuel this story line with jealousy and betrayal rearing its ugly head but never really fully explored.
What was the real deal with Simon, Dean's chief financial officer and good friend?
Mr. Porits did a good job setting the ground work with the main characters as the story spans over the years. The character Dean was portrayed as a very private man but I felt the need to know more of his personal feelings, he seemed heartless after the baby situation. Both Kayla and Irene had strong personalities so it was interesting to read the dynamics between the two of them.

I enjoyed the read and loved the ending.

I tried really hard to like this book, but just could not relate to our heroine, Kayla, on any level. She had a child at 18, but left her Father to raise him while she went to college-Harvard, at that, but the author makes no mention of how she paid for this Ivy league education, and I'm left to wonder over that. Immediately after graduating with an MBA, she lands a dream job in Texas and moves her son in with her-and no complications on that level, either, even tho she has had limited contact with him since his birth, we're led to believe their relationship is picture perfect. The author plainly states that he wants us to believe Kayla is a loving and caring woman, yet refers to her gay neighbors as "the f*g**ts across the hall". She speaks fluent Japanese, yet her Asian mother died when she was born, her older sisters moved out of her Father's house shortly after that, so when did she learn fluent Japanese? Yet again, the author leaves this an unexplained phenomena. Everything in this book is described in terms of dollar value, from the price of her designer briefcase to the big bucks of the car that Dean drives. Ugh. The most interesting character was Dean, but by now he's started his affair with Kayla-who seems to me to be about as shallow as the cement birdbath in my front yard-so he's lost his appeal for me. His wife, meanwhile is either a raging alcoholic, or a savvy business woman in charge of one of Dean's many business ventures...I can't figure out which one of these the Author wants me to believe about Irene, as he's painted her as both and I find this rather jarring combination extremely confusing as well. I'm 45% into the book, and I'm giving up. The reviews I've read on here sounded so positive, but I must be coming at this from a different angle, I care more about the content of character than the designer name on the back of their shirt, and Mr. Portis' characters are sadly lacking in the one, and overflowing in the other. Unimpressed.

Overall, this is a mostly interesting read. Even though the pacing is a little uneven at times, it generally has a good tone and pace to it. The story is compelling and puts enough detail and perspective into the characters and the story to add that "breath of fresh air" feel to a seemingly old story.

This is not to say the book doesn't have it's downfalls. The first half of the book often has a tendency to go on and on. Understandably, you have to set up the characters and situations. Even in parts where the story drags, you understand more of the book as you read further in. Also, watch for subtle clues and hints throughout the book.

Readers will be able to see pieces of themselves in many of the characters in the story. The way it's written, you can almost visualize it happening as if it could occur tomorrow. For the intended audience, this style is a double-edged sword as it really couldn't just happen tomorrow. However, the basic story is one that many can identify with as variations of this story border on commonplace in today's world.

As a whole, the book does a good job of holding your interest, especially in the second half when events are building and you can feel the tension mounting. Ultimately, the ending of the story is a satisfying payoff which leaves things open enough to revisit the characters.

While some of the writing is uneven here, it is a solid effort from Portis. MARRIED is written to crossover as it has a universal reliability and strong lead characters. With a new twist on an age-old story, Portis proves that with the right idea there's always a new story to tell on a seemingly old subject.

Definitely pick this one up. Gives an interesting insight of things to come from Portis.
