Sated is the third book in the Talia Jacobs Saga written by Truth Devour. Talia has finally been reunited with her beloved Bodhi, the six-year-old playmate from her past as a child in Haiti. They are hungry for each other, but each of them has reservations and doubts about the relationship. When they are finally reconciled and together, Talia and Bodhi make the trip to Australia, so her aunt and uncle and the rest of the family can meet him and celebrate Talia’s happiness. On their return home, Talia relishes having her own space again in her apartment as she waits for a call or text from Bodhi, and, as the days pass by, she starts to panic. Their meeting in his office confirms her worst fears as a harsh and angry stranger tells her to go.
Truth Devour’s newest installment in her contemporary fiction saga, Sated, exceeded my expectations as a follow-up to what is already a dynamic series. Talia comes into her own person in Sated, and it is marvelous to behold. Those readers who've followed her from her early days in Wontin, will have already wondered, as I did, if and when Bodhi would reappear in her life, and we were not disappointed. Bodhi is passionate, if a touch controlling, and watching as these two independent souls work at building a life together was a joy. Devour also introduces some marvelous new characters in Sated. I especially enjoyed the scenes with Talia’s elderly friend, Mable, a truly unforgettable character, and Talia’s experiences when she trains in the monastery in China. Sated is an enjoyable and fast-paced contemporary fiction offering that is highly recommended.
