Generational Curse

Generational Curse
by Tracy Reed

What happens when a celibate Christian man befriends a woman involved with a married man? Sean knows he should run in the other direction, but Kyla tempts him to abandon his Christian beliefs for a taste of the forbidden. But if he continues the relationship, can he convince that being with a married man isn't the fantasy life the generations of women in her family made it appear to be?

Sean Prescott and Kyla James are business associates playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse hoping the other will give in. But in this high stakes relationship game, is there really a winner or will both be losers?

My Impressions: 

This is the first book I have read by Tracy Reed and I was blown away. She has an amazing ability to breathe life into the characters she writes in such a way that you fell transported into the book and lives of each individual. The characters had depth, flaws,and weaknesses, that allowed them to be relatable. I greatly enjoyed the relationships between Sean, Chris, his brother and sister-in-law and DeeDee, Kyla and all the girls. They reminded me all to well to make sure you seek godly wisdom and advise and even then the advise can be diluted with our own insecurities and hang ups in life. 

When I first started reading this book I was pretty judgmental of Kyla and Eric. The first few chapters do not paint either of them in a good light. They both makes unwise decisions in their life that affects multiple people. So when she starts to take an interest in Sean, I was disgusted. By the end of the book though, I was proud of the decisions that Kyla had made in her life and how God intervened.

I admired Sean for standing firm in God and not allowing himself to give into sexual temptations, but to make sure he would not be unequally yoked with a partner in life. He had a great backstory that started to unfold slowly throughout the book that really made be bond with his character.  I was completely blown away with Olivia. I don't want to give anything away, but my impressions of her definitely changed by the end of the book and I was glad to see what she had in store for  Eric. 

Overall I would recommend this book for mature audiences only. It has strong sexual themes and elements that would be very inappropriate for anyone other than adults.

Enjoy an Excerpt:


Kyla leaned up against the headboard. “Excuse me?”

“I want, let me rephrase that. If I want to be taken seriously as a marriage therapist, it would help if I were married.”

“I see.”

“Most of the couples I’ve been working with are beginning to question my ability to treat them, seeing I’m not married. So, what do you say?” He waited for her answer.

“That was a horrible proposal.”

“I’m sorry.” He got up and walked over to her side of the bed, took her hand in his, cleared his throat and made a second attempt. “Kyla, will you marry me.”

She looked at him for a brief moment, before replying, “Baby, I’m not Susie Homemaker. I like things the way they are.” He stood up, looking at her with no reaction. “Like I told you before, I’m not interested in marriage.”

“We don’t have to live together, it could be like it is now. Only difference is, we’d be married.”

“How is that like what we have now? I don’t want to be legally bound to you, or anyone else for that matter.” She tried to read his expression. “If this is something you feel you need to do, then I think you should get married.”

“But you said you didn’t want to get married.”

“I don’t.” She stood up and put her robe on. “Excuse me.” She walked into the kitchen and he followed her.

“I’m a little confused. You agree with my decision to get married, but you don’t want to marry me.”

“That’s correct.” She poured two glasses of champagne.

“I don’t understand.”

She took a long sip and answered him. “It’s very simple. You need a wife. Let me rephrase that, you want a showpiece. Someone your patients can relate to, right?”


“All I want from you is sex.”
