Description: On the outside Emily Bruel lives the perfect life. She’s been happily married for almost ten years with two beautiful children. Living on New York City’s Upper East Side, she inhabits a palatial townhouse that was once an embassy. She has a live-in nanny, a housekeeper, a cook, a driver, a masseuse and a trainer. Young, skinny, stunning, she wants for nothing. Except, of course, the want she has for her husband to stop ignoring her existence and touch her, the way he did once.
Emily starts rewinding her love story with the most beautiful man she has ever laid eyes on: Louis Bruel. He was once deemed New York City’s most eligible bachelor. He plucked and hooked the then eighteen-year-old innocent and stunning Emily Marcus before the world had a chance to lay eyes on her. He created a life for Emily that others could only dream of. Was she a fool to trust that one woman could be enough for the insatiable, gorgeous, playboy millionaire? Can their uninhibited, scorching romance just fizzle out and die? With the help of ‘80s songs we journey back with Emily into their lives and their love in rewind.
My Review: Love in Rewind by Tali Alexander was an exceptional book. I started and finished this book in one day. Most of the story takes place in the past and leads up to the current situation at the start of the book. The emotions that the characters feel such you in to the point that you start to feel what they are feeling, whether it is love, lust, or heart break.
I think the Tali captured the mindset of an eighteen year old virgin perfectly. She showcased the naivety of Emily with such perfection that you cannot help but laugh at some of the stuff that comes out of her mouth. Louis was a surprise for me. He goes from a horn dog player to a man that cannot exist without his love.
This story has everything a true love story needs and then some. The sex scenes are hot, the love is sweet and nothing could go wrong. Right up until it does. Louis learns the hard way that keeping secrets can and does lead to false assumptions and misunderstandings.
I give this book 5 stars ***** for its ability to pull me so thoroughly into the book that I was able to block out everything around me. I cannot wait to read more about this couple that has worked their way into my heart
