Emily has the life every woman dreams of.
At 29, she has two beautiful kids, a live-in nanny, housekeeper, cook, and every imaginable luxury in the posh Upper East Side townhouse she shares with her drop-dead gorgeous husband, Louis Bruel. His company, Bruel Industries, owns a big chunk of New York City’s most sought-after real estate, and together Emily and Louis embody the perfect hot fairy tale couple for ten happy years of marriage.
But when Louis mysteriously starts pushing Emily away, becoming distant and secretive, she is forced to search for the truth among the lies, scandal and heartbreak of his past that threaten to shatter her world. What she finds out will test the strength of her love and her vows to the man of her dreams.
Can Emily and Louis rewind far enough back to a time when life was simpler and love was all they needed? Follow their story with the help of some of their favorite songs from the 80’s to discover just how deep and how far love will go.
In the first few chapters, I did not find the story as interesting. There was so many sexual desires between the two main characters, to begin with. Their minds and bodies were all thinking as one and that is the bedroom department. I apologise in advance for putting it so bluntly but it just had to be said.
My review is not all criticising. Just my mere opinion and thoughts of the story. Keep on reading for the better parts of my review.
Although, towards the middle and the latter part of the story – that is where you have to keep on reading as it gets really interesting and heartbreaking too.
I understand the doubts and uncertainties that Emily feels toward her boyfriend, soon-to-be-husband’s complete fond of her. I did not find it that surprising that in the latter part of the story she assumed that he is cheating on her. The man is practically oozing with succes. He is also very good looking, extremely rich and can just pick on any girl that he desires and the girl would gladly commit to him.
Emily has the most perfect life. Her work basically revolves around raising their children and making her husband happy and content. She is one lucky bitch. (Haha) Both of the dreams that Emily had was seriously cold and cruel. It wouldn’t even do any good to anyone if it really does happened.
This story tells a lot about the hardships that married couples have to endure and experience. Without the two parties’ full trust, commitment and love – a marriage can never truly flourish. And also that age is just a number.
I love the ending so much. It’s too funny yet at the same time, it makes me go Are You Kidding Me? Before that, my heart was hoping and wishing for the best for both of them.
