I am so pleased that I stuck with this book. I admit, I didn’t like Louis Bruel at first, he came across arrogant and disrespectful and it was an immediate turn off, but I persevered because I had a feeling that things were about to change. And oh, did they change. Mr arrogant went from selfish, shallow sex craved addict to a man finally knowing what it’s like to find love in the most unlikeliest of females.
Emily is an innocent and somewhat naive 18 year old who first sees the powerful and insanely beautiful Louis Bruel at a party, organized by her sister Jenna and her husband, Mike. For two weeks after their initial meeting, Emily becomes obsessed with the man who has it all. He is a welcome fantasy, nothing more.
Well, that is until another organised event puts them back in the same vicinity, and Louis makes it highly apparent that he feels exactly the same way…
From first sexual encounters and erotic escapades, to first love and growing up in the world of high flying New York glamour, this is the story of how one young woman stole the heart of a relentless business mogul/hard-core playboy.
It spans a decade and tells of an all consuming love that is open, honest and very beautiful in its own way, but also shrouded in doubt and low self esteem.
Emily is unaware of her beauty, she cannot understand how one such as the beautiful and highly revered Louis Bruel could love one such as she, and sometimes that doubt can pave way to disaster…
And even though there wasn’t too much angst here, this story still managed to sweep me away into the high rolling fantasy. To have everything at your feet and the love of a good man is all you could ever ask for, but Emily’s concerns seemed real to me. Her age, accompanied by her very warranted insecurities of how Louis chose to live his life B.E (Before Emily) was a constant struggle and I identified with that part of her character.
Louis, well… he sure is alpha, and even though I didn’t care much for him in the first half, the second really made me do a 180. If there’s one thing I take from this beautifully constructed story is never take what you have for granted, because one day it could all be gone and you will have nothing left but regrets.
The present and past narrative was a real treat because you got two sides of the same story running completely parallel and it kept me riveted to my e-reader, because I wanted to see how a love that started out quite possessive and consuming, became distant and unpredictable. Alas, it all comes together beautifully, laced lyrically with an 80’s musical theme that took me back to a time when things were a lot less complicated. It was quite refreshing in that respect and I am so pleased I took the time to read Love in Rewind.
Sexy, heartwarming escapism with a poignant message. Read it!!!
