Life after the Confetti: Modern Stories of Love and Marriage Series Box Set by Lily J. Adams

I received an ARC of Life after the Confetti: Modern Stories of Love and Marriage Series Box Set by Lily J. Adams as a member of the author’s review team and I am thankful to her for the same.

The blurb:

Fall madly in love. Get married. Ride off into the sunset with your spouse while confetti is thrown in the air. Live happily ever after.

At least, that’s how it’s supposed to go. That’s where most stories end.

But life after the confetti isn’t always everything we imagined…

Pick up your copy of this bundle of modern day stories and follow the extraordinary journeys of five married couples who share friendship and face challenges on the bumpy road to their happily-ever-afters.

Life after the Confetti includes the following five short stories:

1. The Twenty-Five Year Itch

2. Looking for Love: A Secret Life

3. Hidden Desires

4. Adjusting the Sails

5. Building Memories

Is there such a thing as Happily Ever After?

Is there a secret to it?

And what is the cost?

The story:

Five stories in this box set are all a must read. 

The first story is about Anna and John who are celebrating 25 years of marriage and unknown to John, Anna feels that their marriage has lost the spark.  And she feels that John should have an insight as to how she feels. 

The second story is about Leanne and David. Leanna is busy with her work and David is happily helping with the housework and kids. 

The third story is about Nikki and Mark, and how she felt cheated in the marriage when she discovers things about him. 

The fourth story is Jane and Michael, Anna’s neighbours and how they he cared about her.

The final story is about Sarah and Matt, And how they wanted a dream home and were reluctant to talk about finances with each other.

My take:

A collection of five short stories of five couples which can be read as standalones as well. I loved reading them as a series because each one takes off from where the previous one ended. The first three stories are about three best friends and their wives and the fourth and the fifth story also have the characters appearing from the previous books.

I loved the characters, they were realistic and relatable and also the setting.

The author has used simple language to convey how small actions on our behalf can keep our marriage happy. The book made me realise the importance not taking our partners for granted and how communication is very important in marriage.

A must, must read for one and all.

DISCLAIMER: I received a free ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have not received any monetary compensation for the same.
