For 16 years, Kyla and Jefferson have enjoyed a seemingly perfect marriage. They share a wonderful daughter, a passionate love for each other, and a deep spirituality. But their happiness is shattered when Kyla finds Jefferson in bed with another woman - a woman who happens to be her childhood friend. If there’s any hope to repair their broken marriage, they will have to trust their faith like never before. Temptation is a moving story of contemporary people struggling through one of life’s most difficult obstacles - and trusting in God to steer the way. Narrator Caroline Clay captures all the emotions of loved ones fighting to preserve their sacred bond.

I did not get the print version but I imagine the audio would be better. The dialogue was really good so the audio version brings the characters to life.
I would read more stories by this author. The characters were relatable and simply human. Murray describes each character's emotions well and draws you in to them. You sympathize with all of them equally.
Clay's performance was fantastic. Her ability to convey three different men's voice was incredible.
There were several moving moments in the piece.
I did like the book but nothing wowed me like other books do. It was all pretty predictable. I easily got distracted at different times in the book because it bored me. It did show a great example of how to handle things in a Godly way even though it can be a tough situation sometimes. Other than that it was an Ok book.
