Love In Rewind by Tali Alexander

4 stars
ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review
He’s a gorgeous, wealthy and powerful. She’s young, naive and romantically obsessed with a business mogul far out of her league. But when Emily laid eyes on Louis, it was love at first sight. An infatuation turned into life long love and dream come true. But lately, something is amiss in their 10 year marriage, and Emily fears the worse with the realization that her husband had slipped away. What terrible secret is Louise withholding that is tearing her heart apart?


Louis and Emily’s May-Decemeber romance is every girl’s fantasy. As the story begins, Emily is not in a good place. She and her husband floated apart, leaving Emily wondering what the hell went wrong. Through Emily’s memories, we see  their whirlwind beginnings. A flash back to how sweetly Louis wooed an innocent young girl. And linked to their journey are great songs from the 80’s - music helps bring their story to life.

I adored Louis. Yeah, you pretty much think he’s an ass, but he is a lovable character.  His sincerity is endearing.  It took some getting used to his character. At first he came across as a horny dirty talking schoolboy instead of a mature man in his 30’s. But it was easy to fall in love with him.  Emily was likable, but of course she does something incredibly stupid that nearly ruins her marriage and ticked me off. In a plot twist, you realize things are not what Emily believes. Leaving me to relish Louis’ character all the more.

Love in rewind is a fast paced, cute love story which brought back memories for me, through all the great songs from my childhood, floating as part of the story’s background.  

Looking forward to the nest installment and what lies ahead for this enchanting couple.
