Degrees of Love
Degrees of Love is Slabach’s debut novel, which features a highly successful businesswoman, wife, and mother who lives in Silicon Valley with her picture-perfect family. Susan Sinclair is a confident and style-savvy woman who has been recently promoted to Senior Vice President at her company, and everyone believes she has it all: a high-paying job, a loving husband, and two adorable boys. However, it’s soon revealed that not everything is perfect in Susan’s life.
Following her professional promotion, Susan’s husband, Matt, has become even more distant. Whenever Susan tries to address the problem, Matt just ignores her or shrugs off her concerns. Susan desperately wants her children to grow up in a loving two-parent household, so she plays along as best as she can. But then she meets her new boss, Reese Kirkpatrick.
Reese and Susan immediately hit it off, and quickly became friends… and then more than friends. With her marriage on the rocks and her professional career in jeopardy, Susan has to decide once and for all what’s best for her future.
