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
Dawn C’s review 5 stars
Emily Bruel is 29 years old. She has had a wonderful life for the past 10 years. A loving husband and children. She has never wanted or needed anything but her family. But lately things have changed with her husband and she’s not sure they can reconnect…
She’s thinking back….
Isn’t it very girls fantasy to meet a handsome, rich man and have him sweep her off her feet?? Well that’s exactly what happen to Emily Marcus. When she met Louis Bruel. He is the total package. But he’s older and has very bad reputation when it comes to the ladies. Louis is the type of guy who takes what he wants and leaves. He has women throwing themselves at him. He’s comes off as an arrogant jerk but don’t judge a book by its cover… he’s sooo much more! Once he meets Emily, he is a changed man. Emily is the opposite of every thing he usually goes for… she’s innocent and pure. Just out of high school and barely legal. When they finally get together it’s magic. Their totally insane chemistry had me blushing throughout the book. Hot as hell. Warning: don’t read this book in public. Dirty and raw yet beautiful and sweet. I found myself falling more and more in love with Louis one word at a time. He has a crude potty mouth but also spews the sweetest words. His actions are even better than his words. He knows how to treat a lady and make her feel adored. While I was reading, it brought me back to the exact feelings, I felt when I was falling in love… elated and euphoric. Obsession and possession. Louis changes once he meets Emily.
Theirs is a whirlwind romance. Too good to be true. But once the honeymoon stage is over and life begins, can they keep the magic alive??? Will Louis revert to his old ways?? Can love conquer all?? Emily hopes so…
This a debut book for Tali and it’s excellent!! I loved the characters and was totally engulfed in their world. Probably one of the best first kisses and sexual experiences I have ever read!!! Besides it being ridiculously hot, the romance was off the charts. I could not stop smiling. Like I said, this book is every girls fantasy come true!!!! I also loved the references to 80’s music. So cool!!! I look forward to more from Tali Alexander…. a must read.
Kristine’s 5 star review:
One women who has everything, but the one thing she has always wanted and still wants… him. Eleven years later he is drifting away. How did this happen and why had this happened? Rewind in time and maybe we will find out.
What a perfect title for Louis and Emily’s fairly tale. I loved everything about this story. Tali Alexander blew me away with such a beautifully sweet, sexy and emotional debut. I was very connected to this story from page one. Leaving chapter one, having feelings of despair for a women and surprising myself leaving chapter two with such hope I kept going. While reading on and on, totally entranced in Tai’s story telling I fell in love with each and every character. Different aspects in the story fit in perfectly. Smiling at sweet surprises, squirming at all the hot steamy scenes and heart lodged in my throat ready for kindle tossing, this journey has it all!
I’m not one to give anything away, this story has many surprises that I want the reader to experience the way I did. 5++ stars for me! Looking forward to reading many more from Tai Alexander!
“Love is a battlefield by Pat Benatar.” Emily and Sara understand…. This is for you!
“Nothing really to tell, what you see is what you get.”
I am every woman out there that has fantasies in her head. I am a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, a wife, a lover, a mother, and a friend. I happen to also be a Doctor of Pharmacy and a business owner by day, and now a writer by night. Writing and reading help me escape the scary world we live in. I hope my stories help readers experience many different emotions and ultimately, I hope I make them smile…
Writing keeps me sane. I hope reading does the same for you.
