A girl, a guy, a couple. Romance, a love, then marriage, and family. Sounds like the perfect romance novel, right?
Well, kind of, but this is not your typical romance novel.
PORTRAIT OF OUR MARRIAGE,
Memoirs of Love, Family, the Internet, and Obsession
by Martha Emms, has a bit of everything and is a good, adult read for both men and women.
It’s like getting your own personal reality show between two covers.
Steamy romance and hot sex, it also has humor, conflict, some craziness, drama, intensity, and everything needed to tell this powerful story.
It will both entertain and shock you as it crosses the boundaries that most books will not touch. This is a story about one woman’s life as her husband’s casual interest in pornography becomes an obsession.
Their journey takes you through events in their life. From snow skiing, an amazing wedding, and into forbidden territory behind closed doors.
This book isn’t about what's right or wrong, but it is about life.
Several things helped to inspire this story and added to the realism:
First, “Portrait of Our Marriage” was inspired initially by an episode on The Oprah Show, that I watched years ago. The episode dealt with the issue of porn addiction.
Second, I had a dream and it was like watching a movie, it was told through the wife’s point of view. Her life story unfolded while looking at pictures on a digital display device. It was so real and since I kept having the dreams, I felt it was important to me and that it had a meaning and so began my journey in writing this book.
Third, I wanted truth behind the story. I needed to understand the emotion and events that could really happen while living with this type of addiction. The affects it could have on a loved one, a couple, and a marriage. That’s where I gathered and used information from eight women, who were living this story each in their own way.
You want romance? The romance will seduce you.
But this book is about so much more. Discovering who she is and her boundaries, Nicky, the main character, must decide what she will endure for love.
LOVE versus ADDICTION, a story you will not forget.
