Kira has shifted her focus to her son Nate who suffers with Sickle Cell and also her work as Human Resource Director. She loves to sing but has no desire to sing in the choir at their church where her attendance has dwindled.
As we know all too well things happen when we lose our focus in a marriage and the door to temptation opens and in walks something which is actually dressed to look better than what you currently have. For Kira temptation goes by the name of Quincy McAdams; her ex who from appearance sake has made it in the music industry and he wants Kira to ride along with him.
This could be the boost she needs to get her house out of foreclosure, help with her feelings of neglect and revive her marriage or the polar opposite could be the result. As we know in our own lives sometimes trail and tribulations are just the wakeup call we need to recognize when a relationship has gone off the path. Lockley has penned a very realistic tale of temptation and how sometimes if you don’t have the right person in your corner rooting for you and your marriage temptation could become sin.
The basic idea of this story is intriguing and it is relevant. The story is told by one character,Kira,from a first person POV. I am a character lover. Anytime I fall in love with a book, 80 percent of the time it's because the author developed great characters. Here, I admit I was on the fence. I liked Kira, and believe that Lockley brought her to life. Her issues were real and I understood her. The issue for me, was that she didn't really dig into the main supporting characters. They were a bit one dimensional. I didn't understand why she was so tempted. Quincy wasn't really appealing but there were moments of sparks. Mason was super spiritual and according to description not really a heart throb so to speak. I think that Mason was better developed than Quincy though. Onyigie (sp) was an absolute irritation. She was overboard.
The second half of the book actually saved this story. I was so happy that Quincy was out of the picture because again, I didn't get it. The story went from basic and flat to layered and palpable.
Now, I love some Word. But here is the problem with some CF for me, overkill. I don't need a spiritual analysis and coordinating scripture for every point. There were several Sunday school lessons and several scriptures that characters used in dialogue to help illustrate a point. Yes, absolutely saints do this, but it doesn't always work in fiction. Some people may love that and need it, but for me I need it to flow a bit more naturally and then allow me to meditate on what has touched me. God can do that. He really can. But I'm not dissuading anyone. This author did a good job I think that as time goes on authors get better and change their styles so I will definitely read Lockley again.
Also how when there is no communication in a relationship/marriage things will rise up to be tempted.
I love how the author pulls you right into the story from the beginning to the ending.
This is the second book I have read by this author and so far I have enjoyed her books and recieved the ministering messages she writes about.
Then there is the aspect of the storyline itself. The messages were clear and readers can easily apply them to their life. The characters and situations were relatable and realistic.

This was a good short read. The story had me constantly shaking my head trying to direct Kira down the right path instead of the one she’s contemplating.Read more
