Publisher's Summary

The infamous Reverend Curtis Black's sordid past is no secret, as his wife, Charlotte, is well aware. But when Curtis' long-time mistress and mother of his illegitimate two-year-old dies, he and Charlotte have no choice but to raise Curtina together.

While the living, breathing reminder of her husband's infidelity infuriates Charlotte, Curtis couldn't be happier to finally have his whole family together. Despite her best efforts to keep her feelings hidden, Charlotte resents Curtina, taking her emotions out on the young girl. When confronted about her behavior, Charlotte starts spending time away from home, all the while getting closer to her ex-boyfriend. Curtis appears to devote himself to his parish and the new church they're building, but is he really focusing his attention on the female parishioners trying to lure him into bed?

Suddenly Curtis and Charlotte find themselves slipping into dangerous territory, and not even Curtis' seven-figure salary can prevent what is about to happen.

Well written book

This was a good book but nowhere near what i really wanted to listen to. It did get a bit boring.

Treacherous

I'm glad I don't know anyone who is as conniving and low-down as this. It's hard to feel sorry for Charlotte at all. She's been such a self-centered, childish, manipulative, cut-throat, black-hearted trollop. Maybe the purpose of this book was to let Rev. Curtis Black have a taste of the same bitter medicine he's been dosing out to his wives over the years. They're all too old to be doing the foolish things they do ... especially as leaders of a church. I didn't like this sick, twisted story, but the author and the narrator did a good job of letting it unfold slowly.

Great Book!

Once again, Kimberla has done a great job. Lots of twists and turns and leaves you wanting more. Can't wait for the next book.

Betray

I cant believe that Charlotte act that way toward a little baby (Curtina). She didn't ask to come here. But that is what she get for Betraying a marriage. AWESOME book. I love Kimberla books and I have ALL of them. Charlotte is a mess. Excellent title, but I say betray because that is how I felt Charlotte did to everyone.

Horrible and Unrealistic

I did NOT enjoy this book at all. I found it impossible to relate to any of the characters, as I dont know anyone so corrupt in real life. I didn't really see any loving and honoring, but there sure was lots of betraying going on. You initially want to sympathize with the main characters, but the wife is so close minded and self absorbed that it becomes impossible. The man is continually called a 'good man,' and doesn't know why his wife is not more understanding about his affair, except he's had an affair on ALL of his wives! This is a 'good man'? Also, the narrator is does not do a good job either. She doesn't seem to know how to read to where it sounds as if someone is actually talking. Stresses in all the wrong places, etc... My advice~dont buy this one!

Great book; awful narrator

What did you like best about Love, Honor, and Betray? What did you like least?

The story line was really good. The narrator lessened the experience.

How could the performance have been better?

Using a different narrator would have made it better... someone who can read well.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Never use that narrator again.

Good Read Bad Narrarator

Would you consider the audio edition of Love, Honor, and Betray to be better than the print version?

The same

What did you like best about this story?

The entire story kept me wanting to read more. And the end left me thinking as always it can only get better from here.

What didn’t you like about Paula Jai Parker-Martin’s performance?

The voices were not realistic. The story took place in Chicago and the women sounded like they were from the south!

If you could rename Love, Honor, and Betray, what would you call it?

The Rev. Curtis Black

This is a good listen. Forgiveness is a strong word that many do not understand the gravity of it. How soon we forget what we did to others and turn around and not forgive what they have done to us. All I can say is the Rev. Curtis Black.
