Although Angelina Rousseau pours all her pent-up feelings into her paintings, when she meets a handsome stranger at a friend’s wedding in Las Vegas, she believes she’s discovered why she feels so lonely — she simply married the wrong man.

Nicholas Rousseau is a highly successful industrial engineer and has the Midas touch with his investments. Or so it seems. But when Nick is arrested for real estate fraud, his career implodes.

Angelina doubts his innocence, doubts her own love for Nick. She is certain of only one thing — this will end their marriage. But Nick’s duplicity snares Angelina and the authorities believe her to be as guilty as Nick. To protect her own future, she must sell her cherished possessions to finance Nick’s defense.

Though Nick desires to reconnect with his estranged wife, their emotionally bankrupt marriage proves more difficult to repair than either imagined. As they seek to discover what went wrong between them, the couple realize Nick could spend the rest of his life in prison.

Could “having it all” cost Nick and Angie more than they ever imagined?

My thoughts:

This book starts in the present and the we are tossed back to the beginning of how everything start with Angie and Nick. Their marriage started like most of ours, happy, full of ideas how love is all you need. And then life happens.

But with Nick his desire to have more money and give Angie everything he thinks she wants drives a wedge between them. The author did a great job of showing the real and raw thoughts that go through couples minds. We should go talk to them, reach out, but we don’t out of stubbornness.

I really enjoyed this book and how everything worked out. It wasn’t nice and tidy but it was real.
