In her recently released book, Love in Rewind, Tali Alexander’s hot, brooding millionaire falls madly in love with the young, naïve Emily Marcus. The unlikely pair gets hot and heavy (really hot), gets married, has two beautiful children and lives happily ever after. Although, that’s not exactly what happens.
