Slade and Reeve have always been friends, neither realizing just how much one wanted the other. Neither realized the changes that would occur when a chance encounter moves them from friend to lovers.

When Devotion started out, it was a little confusing, as the author threw so much background story up front that I was unsure just who the story was about. Once the confusion cleared and Slade and Reeve take over, the story flows more smoothly. The connection is easy to see between the two and they waste no time burning up the pages. I would like to say that this is an easy-going romance; however, Devotion is full of angst. When the men have to separate, Slade’s life changes drastically. Slade’s behavior as he deals with these changes, especially after Reeve returns, comes across believably. Reeve’s behavior and need for revenge when he realizes what has happened rings true, as well. When the men are separated once more, I almost wanted to cry.

Devotion is a story that covers a large period of time and has a large group of secondary characters. As a futuristic, Devotion has a lot going for it, as the action will keep the reader glued to the pages. The secondary characters also help move the story along, with several of them playing key roles in the story line.

As Devotion drew to a close, I was shocked by the ending but am glad to see that the author already has a follow up coming out soon and am waiting to see what will happen next.
