After thirty years of marriage, Wilson Lewis, son-in-law of Allie and Noah Calhoun (of The Notebook), is forced to admit that the romance has gone out of his marriage. Desperate to win back his wife, Jane's, heart, he must figure out how to make her fall in love with him... again. Despite the shining example of Allie and Noah's marriage, Wilson is himself a man unable to easily express his emotions. A successful estate attorney, he has provided well for his family, but now, with his daughter's upcoming wedding, he is forced to face the fact that he and Jane have grown apart and he wonders if she even loves him anymore. Wilson is sure of one thing--his love for his wife has only deepened and intensified over the years. Now, with the memories of his in-laws' magnificent fifty-year love affair as his guide, Wilson struggles to find his way back into the heart of the woman he adores.

Finally posting up this review XD

Only when I was halfway through this book did I hover over the cover on GR and notice that it said The Notebook #2, which then led to a massive freakout on my part. I can't stand hearing about people who manage to read series out of order, and here I am doing exactly what I hate hearing about! I almost had to stop and put the book down, but the fact that I'd already started kept me going. And it made perfect sense too, had no idea it was a sequel. So I decided to just read #1 as a novella, as I don't know what happened in it.
I 100% applaud Wilson for (view spoiler) Honestly, that whole plan of his just astounded me! The fact he managed to pull it off was incredible. Everyone needs a Wilson in their lives, someone willing to just actually realise what women need and do it. I totally felt for Jane when (view spoiler) I cried for her. I can totally see that being something that happens to me, only difference being my husband wouldn't make such a big deal. I love how Wilson was in it for the long haul, and knew it wouldn't be fixed overnight or a few weeks away. That man has resilience, and I respect that a lot.
The ending was so perfect <3 So pleased I got into Spark's books.
