Chris Perez tells the story of his relationship with music superstar Selena in this heartfelt tribute.

One of the most compelling and adored superstars in Latin music history, Selena was nothing short of a phenomenon who shared all of herself with her millions of devoted fans. Her tragic murder, at the young age of twenty-three, stripped the world of her talent and boundless potential, her tightly knit family of their beloved angel, and her husband, Chris Perez, of the greatest love he had ever known.

For over a decade, Chris held on to the only personal thing he had left from his late wife: the touching and sometimes painful memories of their very private bond. Now, for the first time, Chris opens up about their unbreakable friendship, forbidden relationship, and blossoming marriage, which were cut short by Selena’s unforgivable death.

Chris’s powerful story gives a rare glimpse into Selena’s sincerity and vulnerability when falling in love, strength and conviction when fighting for that love, and absolute resilience when finding peace and normalcy with her family’s acceptance of the only man she called her husband. While showcasing a side of Selena that has never been disclosed before and clarifying certain misconceptions about her life and death, To Selena, with Love is an everlasting love story that immortalizes the heart and soul of an extraordinary, unforgettable, and irreplaceable icon.

    The book is good. I guess I just got bored. Maybe because it reminded me so much of the movie. I was hoping to learn something new and there weren’t a lot of new details from what I already knew. However the love he had for Selena was beautiful and he portrayed it in his book.
  • Beautifully written, intimate and a great read

    By Beatriz in Nashville
    This was a beautifully written, intimate and very genuine sounding account of their romance, the challenges they encountered, the principles which grounded their relationship, their tremendous work ethic and questions remaining of what might have been and regrets over warning signs missed when things went wrong; yet it’s done from a place of gratitude, growth, reflection and real love. I highly recommend this book. Chris did a great job.

    Thank you Chris Perez for writing this book! I hadn’t know much about what she was like as a wife or a normal humble person. This world wasn’t ready for her at all

    I didn’t want the book to end… I literally had to take breaks. I knew I could finish it in one night… you can literally imagine/hear Chris telling their story. Such a great read! I did tear up a couple times.

  • They had so much love for each other

    By EddieV1990
    I really enjoyed reading this book and hearing chris tell us his amazing love story he had with Selena. I especially like how he admired her for who she was offstage witch was a caring, loving and down to earth person who came from humble beginnings. She was also a goof ball full of life and adventure. I admire Chris for sharing his story with us now I know the rough road he went through grieving for his wife.
