What do you expect from this book? Well, I've been reading it and here is the lowdown.
Music. Zoe or Zoella, plays the violin, or cello for a living and she's pretty good at it. She's engaged to hot Rockstar Robbie McClaire. I have a running crush on him right now. Their lives are pretty awesome, a dream if you ask me, but that's just it. Zoe's life isn't a dream. She has a past that is pretty scary and she hasn't told her husband to be about it. When it comes knocking, she splits and jilts rockstar at altar. **shocking**!! I was very angry with her at this point.
To stop spoilers, I will hold there, but I will say that this is different from the angsty types of plots I read in romance novels. Zoe struggles with a difficult past that pretty sucks, and the idea of Robbie finding out has her cringing more than anything. Zoe has a lot of insecurities, and her vulnerability can be damaging to those around her.
As for her the rest of the cast, I thought Elly K captured a pretty good idea of what marriage can be and what suspicions, anger, and old money can do to people trying to stay married.
I would have loved to see a few glimpses of Zoe's music career, out of her breaking down moments. Otherwise, it's a pretty good read. If you can't tell from the long review here, I had a good time reading this.
