Publisher's Summary

What would you do if your husband suddenly wanted to rewrite the rules of your relationship?

High-school sweethearts Julia and Michael have left their humble West Virginia roots far behind for a glamorous life in Washington, D.C. As they achieve more in their careers - she as a high-end events planner, he as the CEO of his own sports-drink company - they lose themselves as a couple.

    "Excellent!!"
    Any additional comments?

    At first I thought the wife in this story was being selfish and materialistic. I almost stopped there but gave it a chance and I am very happy I did. You learn their story and realize it isn't all what it seems. What a fantastic story this is, definitely give it a chance, you won't regret it!
