Emily wants what every woman does: to have it all. Is that too much to ask?
Emily really can’t complain. She’s married to a wonderful man, her high school sweetheart, who still dotes on her as he did when he first laid eyes on her. They have a beautiful home together, and they each enjoy successful careers. On the outside looking in, Emily has what any woman would be perfectly happy with.
But it’s just not enough. Emily can’t help wishing for just a bit more—for that special spark, for that thrill of something new and surprising, for the shivery tingles running down her spine. For real passion—for true romance.
She never expects to find it during the workday and definitely not in the form of a sticky note.
Just one square slip of paper with a few handwritten words, tucked mysteriously into the contents of her purse and dropped right into her small world, marks the first of a slew of sexy surprises Emily couldn’t have anticipated no matter how hard she wished for them. She’s desperately sought after every one of the special moments in store for her, and there’s no question that she deserves them.
Even as Emily eagerly anticipates and thoroughly savors all of the excitement and mystery of what may come, she just can’t guess the roller coaster of emotions she’s soon to experience—or just how much it will change her.
And she may never guess just who—is leading her on the romantic adventure of her dreams.
Just when she feels she’s lost the life and love she most wants to have, she finds them—in the last place she’d ever think to look.
Since this is a very short novella, I’ll make my review also short. Because otherwise the review will be longer than the story.
In one word: AAAAHHHWWWW (okay, I don’t know if this is really a word… Second try: MELT).
Like the cover: the story is sweet, cute and it melts your heart. Although a bit predictable nearing the end, it’s just the kind of story you need to read once in a while to make you feel good. To hug your husband before you go to work and then wonder off to your office for the naughty thoughts during the day.
Admit it: you have had them. And so does Emily. Off course she has the sweetest husband at home. But there is nothing exciting. So when someone is giving you Post-it notes with comments on them, you get kind of enthusiastic and exhilarated.
And while nothing is happening (yet), you feel guilty towards your husband for feeling this way. So you are torn up, just like Emily. What to do, what to do?
Find out what Emily did on The Post-it Affair from Justine Avery. Three out of five stars from me and a thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
